I sure couldnt handle being a kid with a shelf of toys I can't play with. Hell I can't stand that now.
It's funny, as a kid I opened every toy I ever got. Although I was generally good about keeping track of any lose pieces, I inevitably lost a few here and there. Hell, I haven't seen the heads to my red and green Voltron lions in I don't know how many years. Now as an adult, I'm the opposite. I have some toys I never open, usually when they're collector's editions, xx years kind of things like the Transformers Masterpieces Hasbro has brought over. The rest -- incuding amiibo -- are unboxed though and displayed proudly on a shelf or sensibly in a storage ottoman in my gaming area.

She's more common than I thought she would be, but yeah. I see her everywhere. Even Walmart, and they don't have much at all.

Yeah, I still see her often. I'd say she's the 2nd most common of wave 2.

Where did you get those shelves? I must have.
Ikea. They're CHEAP! They're actually photo frame shelves. there's a lip on the front that you rest the photoframe up against and then tip it against the wall. But they're perfect fit for amiibos. The package hangs off about a CM but that's it.

Even cheaper now then when I bought them.



There's 2 different lengths.

Are the ones you have pictured 115cm or 55cm or both?
How are they hung?

Nice. Keep us updated and if you get through and able to do that. Tell us how you did it! :D
Update! So I contacted their chat support and gave them both of the order numbers. After waiting a few minutes the support rep let me know that they couldn't consolidate the orders since they were shipping from different warehouses but as a goodwill gesture offered me a £5 shipping discount on the Ness order which equaled out to about the same. So as long as you're friendly and patient they'll work something out for you!

The longer ones. Just over 45 inches in length. It ends up being more shelf space for the price if you go with the longer ones. The short ones are $10 for half the length pretty much. $5 more and you have twice the length. They also come in white btw.

Has anyones Shulk amiibo orders changed? Mine says 'Closed' but it won't say if it's been shipped or not and now I'm worried it's been cancelled and no one told me...

I just checked all my gamestop in-store pickup orders and they are all closed which means they are in the process to shipping them the store?

Tempted to order from Amazon UK, but is there any difference in the figures at all? Specifically the writing on the bottom. I open all of my amiibos, but if there's something different written/stamped on the bottom, there would be inconsistencies in my collection and I wouldn't be able to live with myself.
Don't know if this has been answered but the figures are all 100% the same for EU JPN & US versions of Amiibo. ONLY the box is different.
