True, but you are at least getting an Amiibo at the right price along with a fairly new-ish game at full price, so I'd say it's better to see it that way then paying £30-40 for an Amiibo.

Put an order in for Kirby since I'm quite behind on the first 2 Waves, let alone the rare/pricey ones. If I have some spare money next week, I may pick up Steam with Lucina if she's still in stock.

yea. I sort of prefer to buy from nintendo but I have over the last few months collected a few amiibo paying above the odds for them... I feel I am sort of committed to buying them after buying one or two from previous waves. I'm only after specific ones but now i've got some of them I want the others to complete my own collection. so bit stuck for choices.

Well, the one advantage to those Skylanders Amiibo they're releasing is at least Activision will have a well stocked supply of them....at least I hope they will...

I'm not really liking the look of them skylander ones, glad I'm not going for a full collection.

Wouldn't mind getting the Ryu one if/when it's released.

So guess who I found on my travels today?

Looking at the Amiibo Facebook groups I joined (Figured it be a good idea) it seems quite a few Game as well as a few others like Smyths have these in-stock as well as Ike, so it would be worth a look into your local stores if you're after the FE Characters.

^ wow nice find. i've been using the online stock checker on game, I can't verify how accurate it is because i'm never in the nearest towns the day I have checked it. but it has said there is nothing in store every time I have checked it.

Another sighting on my travels today, my local Toys-R-Us had Charizards and Kirbys for the £11 mark too. Some Smyths stores are even selling Ness from what I've heard.

Guess they really are starting to restock certain Amiibo now.

I managed to find Ness, Marth and Lucina at Smyths at the weekend... haven't seen them anywhere else before and only £10.99 each. I imagine they won't be there for long.

Had to order Pac-man from Japan though - £16 delivered from ebay.

Quite a few Amiibo have come back in-stock on the Game website, most noteworthy is Little Mac for £10.99!

I'd be quick if you're reading this (Ignore the Sold Out on the images, its not true for some of them). Managed to get a Mac Order in. :)

I saw this post too late - sold out already! However, I did manage to preorder Dr Mario so that's good enough for me!

Yeah, it seems they're really starting to sort out the stock issues at last. Just got an email from the Nintendo Online Store saying certain Amiibo will be back in stock this week and to keep checking the site from today.

Maybe just get that Villager for cheap yet. :lol:

I just want to get my hands on a Mega Man, Ness and Pac-Man Amiibo! I've never had any luck with any preorders (with the exception of my Sonic Amiibo) :(
