I made a mockup of a potential Sonic the Hedgehog amiibo series and tweeted it to the SEGA and Sonic Twitter accounts, lol.

C'mon, if Shovel Knight and Monster Hunter can get amiibo, Sonic definitely can! It's your move, SEGA. I'm waiting...

It's never going to happen, is it? I just want a Tails amiibo! T_T lol

I wanted to include Cream and other characters as well, but I also wanted to keep it somewhat realistic, lol. Those are the top 6 characters I'd expect if we were to ever get an Sonic the Hedgehog amiibo series. I could throw together another batch of 6, maybe with Metal Sonic, Rouge, Silver, Blaze, Cream, and a Chao?

Any UK people: what foreign sites are good for amiibo checking with regard to shipping costs? Always ordered from inside the country because I assumed I'd have to pay double to get anything over here.

Have there been any reported restocks of the MM amiibo?

I keep holding off on buying the inflated scalper version via amazon in case I stumble across one in the wild, but I need that Fierce Deity outift :/

YMMV, but I was just able to place an order for the Metroid 2-pack at Best Buy, through the app, for release day shipment.

It's been "coming soon" for a long time now.

I just tried thru a pc and thru the mobile app and both said this no matter what address I provided.

Heads up! We can't ship to that address. The good news is that it might be available for store pickup, or you can try shipping it to a different address.

My order is still good, shipping to my usual BB address in MIchigan.

I wonder if it's a warehouse-by-warehouse thing? Might be worth trying again later in the week.

Store pickup was not an option at all.

If only they were the 2nd print 3 pack I'd rush out to TRU to get one.

But really, I just needed an excuse to Get Squishy.

amiibo preorders are pretty easy to come by here, but squishy is the only one I've had to hunt around for in over a year. Actually sold out at a few places. The popularity is real.

Also has the best unlocks. Still on the fence about the Samus amiibo. Already have ZSS.

I was looking at my amiibo collection the other day, and I just felt so dead on the inside. I was acutely aware that the process of finding rare amiibo in stores was always more rewarding than actually collecting them.

I saw Samus and the metroid at Target last night but I was afraid that buying them would only make me depressed. Not sure where my collection goes from here...

Anyone catch the date of the Tiki and Chrom Amiibos? I went to put it in the calendar in my phone and then forgot the date as I was putting it in(I am so old). Sometime in October, but can't remember if it was the 13th or 20th.

Join the CanadaGAF Discord, and subscribe to the amiibo Hunt channel. You'll get a notification as soon as new amiibos, such as the SMO and Fire Emblem ones, become available.

Man, what a difference just a slight mouth enlargement does to save the Mipha amiibo. I really hope there isn't a lot of variation in that in the shipped amiibos.

That's a huge improvement. So much so that it almost looks like a different sculpt.

I know this doesn't help, but they were available on Best Buy multiple times—early pre-orders, earlier this week, and now they were available early this morning. Good chance there's some in-store but not sure how many

I believe they're available on Best buy and Target right now. Amazon will probably go up later at a random time.
Edit: Target they're up, Best buy is check store only currently.

The Best Buy I preordered at didn't get enough Metroid packs to cover the preorders...that they had already charged people for. And notified that they were ready to be picked up.

To say that I was a bit livid would be an understatement. I am now terrified for my SNES classic preorder.

This is me. Got the email today, it's all ready to pick-up. Go there, head to the pick-up counter. "Er....we don't have it for you." They got 2 of them in total, apparently. And one person walked in and bought one that was accidentally on the floor that should've been held for the pre-order people.


I just stood there listening without really saying much, and accepted what happened. I'm just numb to this shit by now.

I'd gladly jump on this if I wasn't taking the chance that maybe I'll get it as a b-day gift next week (I doubt it, but meh, worth a shot), so I'll let someone else take advantage of this since I'm sure by next week, someone else will have taken your offer. Props for helping someone with selling it at a value.

I honestly don't understand how this company is still in business. I can understand cancelling my order because of stock issues. That sucks, and I'll be mad, but understandable (to a degree). I've had a fair number of preorders fall through before from various retailers, but Best Buy is the ONLY company to have the balls to charge me for something that they don't have and know they don't have.

This was years ago but the same thing almost happened to me with a Mass Effect 2 collector's edition. Went in to pick it up and they couldn't find it, and it (and the only other CE they got) was just sitting out on the shelf. Haven't trusted them with a preorder for limited stuff since. Sad to hear they're still like this. :/

That Samus looks so good. I'd love to get one but I'm not really a big Metroid fan, nor do I want the metroid amiibo. Maybe I'll wait and see if I can get a decently priced one from Japan or something.
