Having either without Simon Belmont is the big mistake.

Are the Guardian amiibo particularly difficult to find? Spotted one in the wild for the first time and nearly bit but am sorta low on cash at the moment so I didn't want to buy one assuming they'll be easy to find down the road.

I've seen it in stock online lately. Maybe it will be rare sometime later but I feel like Nintendo will reprint these amiibos a few times as more people purchase Zelda and buy switch hardware.

I wish Walmart would put the yarn yoshi bundle back on sale. I didn't want to blue one and the day after the clearance price shot back up they had every color available. No idea how that happened.

I picked up the BotW Archer Link at Target over the weekend. Don't even have the game or a Switch yet, but figured "Why the hell not?" It was literally the only BotW Amiibo they had. Otherwise it was all Wario, Rosalina, a shit ton of Animal Crossing, and I think a lone Lucas.

Omg, don't worry, I'm sure more retailers will restock soon.

Wow, I was planning on posting after Wizard World here in Cleveland on crazy prices for amiibo but...no one had them this year. Last year a few sellers were trying to get $20 a pop for pretty much all the ones available but nada this year.

I also totally forgot to post that the Splatoon and Monster Hunter amiibo displays were on AmiAmi for 300 Yen each (which is like $3-ish) so not to bad at all considering. Looks like they're down for maintenance now though til 6.

Do we know if the Inkling amiibo are going to be compatible with Splatoon 2 in any capacity? They're ~$6 in most stores and that's low enough for me to bite.

Additionally, anyone know of somewhere with the Isabelle summer outfit in stock? She's the only AC amiibo I'm missing.

I can't go around carrying 18 amiibo. :P

Wish they would offer more amiibo cards. I'd get all of the Zelda one agains. Much easier to take those with me. :x

After I saw a $60 toon link and $40 loose smash Link amiibo on GAF sales, I was curious and posted the same prices on Craigslist to see the interest.
Holy shoot! the interest. Guy offers 25 for toon link and then calls me a neck beard for posting 60.
today he offered 60 for both toon and smash after insulting me yesterday. The thirst is real guys, sell your link's and become rich neck beards

...remember when the world stopped caring about Amiibos, and many sold them off?

The only change I did since BotW came out, is make one box specifically for Zelda Amiibos to grab quickly.

My OoT Link that I was able to grab whilst briefly available on Amazon arrived today, and now I'm conflicted between wanting to own the thing and the temptation to just stick it straight on eBay for the daft prices it's going for.

This is the boat I'm in! 😭

Paid an obscene amount for OoT Link yesterday, but got a good price on Sheik so it kinda equals out.

The coming Twilight Princess amiibo will unlock everything Smash Link does, including Epona. So they're giving him a spiritual reprint so to speak, since Smash Link is based on TP Link anyway.

Nothing will ever make up for Nintendo thinking it was a good idea for Smash Link to look like he's peeing.

Wait really? That's not the wolf link one right, but a new amiibo?

edit: o from my link

Data mined amiibo:
In addition to all the above amiibo as featured in the game, data mining of the game appears to confirm items related to seemingly unreleased amiibo. The items point to a Fierce Diety Link armor set from Majora’s Mask and an associated amiibo, a Twilight Princess Link amiibo and a Skyward Sword amiibo with the relevant iteration of the green tunic and the goddess sword as a rare drop.

All of the Zelda series Amiibos give useful stuff, especially when you're early in your playthrough. (Yet another 16-defense wooden shield and yet another 20-attack boko club kinda lose their luster after 50 hours in the game.) Regardless, the all give a ton of helpful ingredients, more than just scanning a non-Zelda-series Amiibo.

Been avoiding spoilers even during podcasts. Cuz people can't keep their mouths shut about stuff later in the game.

Alm and Celica Amiibo functionality in Fire Emblem Echoes explained in a press release this morning: http://nintendowire.com/news/2017/03...bo-compatible/

Also launching on May 19 are the Alm and Celica amiibo figures, available only as a set at a suggested retail price of $24.99. When used in the game, these amiibo will activate their own exclusive dungeons, allowing heroes to earn items and level up their armies further by defeating bosses. By selecting Mila’s Turnwheel from the menu on the overworld map, they will also be able to take advantage of their Alm and Celica amiibo in battle. During combat, players can sacrifice a portion of Alm or Celica’s health in order to summon a computer-controlled illusory hero, which will act as a temporary ally for a single turn.

As Alm and Celica get stronger, their stats can be saved to their respective amiibo, allowing their summoned unit to grow in strength alongside them. In addition, all Fire Emblem amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series can be used to summon an illusory hero of that character, allowing players to seek assistance from spectral visages of Marth, Ike, Roy, Robin, Lucina and the upcoming Corrin amiibo. All other currently available amiibo are also compatible, and will summon an additional monster to the battleground to assist players in battle, providing some much-needed help in case of a strategic emergency.

also, Corrin Amiibo mentioned. he still lives!

Yeah, Nintendo's marketing uses "amiibo" for both singular and plural forms.
