Sure feels nice. Pretty sure I'm never doing a smash set again. I'll just get new characters.

Found a lone Majora's Mask Link at my local Best Buy while picking up an online order. Not collecting the Zelda line though, so it's gonna stay on the peg for the next customer.

Caved in and ordered a JP Callie and Marie amiibo 2-pack from Amazon for 30 dollars new. I had a 25 GC from Amazon so I'm paying 5 dollars for it. Should be here on Tuesday!

Hopefully my OCD/Perfectionist doesn't kick in when I see the Japanese text on it.

Ordered Corrin P2 earlier today, thanks for the heads-up! I got in really late, super glad they stayed up for a while. Just hope it comes through, now!

It has me in a dilemma, though. I have Corrin's Figma on the way at some point this month, alongside Kat from Gravity Rush. I had other stuff I didn't plan for (concert tickets!) pop up, and it's looking like I'll only get to keep one (really I shouldn't keep either but I want at least one lol). On one hand, I love FemCorrin's design, and I want the Figma in her boxart pose. On the other, I have no Gravity Rush figures, and I will have FemCorrin's amiibo, so "doubling up" on the character seems awfully goofy!

Bah. It'll all get sorted out when they get here. The screenshots of the amiibo up there look awesome for the price. Marf this is not. :p

WHAT THE HELL!?

Best Buy: Inkgirl 2 is ready to be shipped yet Inkboy 2 needs to be shipped to a fucking store and the nearest one is like a hundred miles away!

I ordered all the Splatoon 2 ones when they were pre-orderable but two weeks ago, the Ink kids got delayed. Did my Best Buy screw me over?

They probably oversold stock. But yea, I think they screwed up. Try contacting CSR about it.

What's a good way to store your amiibos? I think I have like 15 or 20 so far.

I haven't opened all of them yet but I've been keeping the opened ones on top of a wooden wall shelf but dust has been rampant and since its above my bed I try to gently put them back when not in use but they keep sliding on the wooden shelf as I set them somewhere. I'm afraid of the bottom part of the base getting chipped and scratched.

I had around 60-70 amiibo when I moved, I put every single one back in its packaging & then put it in a bigger box. If you don't have the packaging, my only guess is a plastic container where they won't rattle around. I can't imagine they would get damaged or broken as long as they're not being shaken around violently.

wrap them all individually in bubble wrap, sealed with masking tape, and box them up?

time consuming but probably the safest method

I'm planning to get the Squid Sisters diorama kit next month while I go to Japan. It's 400 JPY.
And yes, those X-Wings and TIE Fighters are model kits from Bandai. xD

My friend says he ordered FemCorrin from Amazon for me, I'll have to pick her up from his house eventually!

Now my only goal left (er, for Smash amiibos) is Long-Haired Bayo. No luck with one of the Best Buys near-ish to me. x_x

None of those are sold directly by Amazon. They've just third party sellers who have Amazon fulfill their shopping. Happens with a lot of products

For whatever reason that's been the case for ages now. I wonder if import sellers on Amazon overbought and are trying to clear them at reasonable prices?

I know some Lego Dimensions sets had something similar happen on eBay. People bought a shit-ton of hard-to-find sets to resell, particularly the Portal 2 set, but then Lego/TT released a huge shipment, so the prices cratered on eBay, which in turn caused some retailer prices to plummet.

Got one. I know squishy Metroid gets all the hype but I'm actually most interested in Samus.

It's just nice to see this series making a lavish return with a game that looks pretty much perfect, an amiibo line, a special edition with soundtrack, and even a limited edition system.

And the promise of Metroid Prime 4 on Switch? Whew lad. E3 really delivered big time.

Awesome! Thanks for the post. Just got into metroid this year, super stoked for the remake. Now I just got to get the new Zelda amiibo and I'll be taking a break from amiibos for a long time.

Is it safe to assume that there will be more Animal Crossing amiibo in landfills than E.T. 2600 cartridges?

It'll be layered now. Dig down 10 feet, find Disney Infinity, 20 ft is AC Amiibos, 50 ft is ET cartridges.
