Re: Amiibo figurine discussion (Wii U / New 3DS / Switch)

These really seem to have dried up around my area. I don't have many places to find them locally (Walmart, Target, or GameStop) and they all seem to have hardly any or the ones that they have are like a bunch of the same four or five characters (seems like I run across the fireball Mario, Waluigi, Daisy, Donkey Kong, Kirby, some of the new Zelda ones, and a bunch of Animal Crossing characters). Once in a while I'll grab one off Amazon if I really want it (last one I did was Boo) but otherwise I haven't got one for quite a while.

Re: Amiibo figurine discussion (Wii U / New 3DS / Switch)

The Toys R Us near me always seems to have a metric ton. (Weirdly, they had several racks of Callie and Marie last week when I couldn't find one of those figures online without a massive markup.) Target and Best Buy seem okay for new-ish releases but don't offer too much beyond that and the usual peg-warmers. Both have cut way down. It's been a while since I looked at the Walmart near me, but it was the same story there, although they did have a few older ones, including some long-unavailable Zelda ones (that we gone by the time I realized they were long-unavailable ). I haven't looked at GameStop in ages.

Gamestop got a batch of the SSB Link amiibo. It's showing available at most locations near by and for shipping. I believe you can also use FREESHIP code on the site.

This is the one that sold out once BOTW came out because it drops Epona.

This was just a few months ago and I already have almost 40. I've only been picking up ones I'm actually interested in and most of them I got from local used game stores.

PIcked up the wedding Mario from Super Mario Odyssey. I love the game so Im probably going to get Peach and Bowser soon too. Also want to get the Koopa Troopa and a Goomba eventually.

Yes, there's an NFC chip in part of the cereal box that acts as an Amiibo.

The Peach one has the oddest pose, though...
