Is Mega Man generally sold out or more expensive now then? I was lucky to get him on the preorder. I missed Pac-Man though, but there are a few options on Amazon shipping from Japan for around £16 I will probably go for.

The only others I'm hoping to catch on preorder are Duck Hunt Dog & Duck, Mario Maker (it's a 3D pixellated Mario from Super Mario Bros - looks cool in the pics) and R.O.B. Apparently Zero Suit Samus is on her way to me right now :D

How does everyone display them? I take them out of their boxes and have them on the Nintendo shelf in my display cabinet. I've got so much stuff on there now though (what with the Happy meal toys from last year) that I might have to expand onto another shelf!

Anyone got any hot tips on where to get the Splatoon ones? They're the only ones I want.

Yeah I was about to report that the Nintendo store had a restock over lunchtime, but ALK beat me to it! I managed to get a Little Mac, but Pac Man was still sold out when I checked. Looks like all the highly desired ones sold out quick. Although they still have Wii Fit Trainer, if anyone wants that?

Well, she is meant to be one of the rare ones. :lol: Apparently there'll be another restock on the site tomorrow too, so might be worth keeping an eyes between 10-12am if experience as taught me anything.

My Wooly Yoshi arrived today. Quite a cute well woolen toy. XD

Gah! No such luck for me, but at least it's been dispatched.

I've no interest in these things, but I really hope they flood the market with them & the price goes through the floor to sicken all the opportunistic bulk buying scalpers out there & let the gamers & the collectors have their fun.

I got around to my local game and got the last lucina. pretty chuffed I got that. I pre-ordered one from the latest wave, have a zero suit samus on the way I think. no toys r us or smyths anywhere close to where I live. the nearest is about 30 or so miles away.

still no luck with shulk but its looking more hopeful I might get one if these restocks keep coming.

I'm looking for a blue wooly Yoshi if anyone has a duplicate or sees one somewhere. With or without the game - I don't mind!

Today's new wave and Little Mac arrived safely today. So happy Palutena is finally in my collection and without any hassle.

Not much on the Nintendo Store front today, Palutena, Zero Suit Samus, Gannondorf and Dark Pit can currently be ordered for the £10.99 price.

They normally do that instead of putting them all together. Little Mac on the other hand came in a much larger box on his own then the rest of mine (Probably due to his value. XD)

Been a while since I updated with pictures;

Here is the current amiibo collection. It is comprised of a complete EU boxed set which is 53 units strong! This also includes a Silver Mario which at this point is a US or AUS exclusive. I intend also to get all of the big box releases with amiibo included.

Noticed that GAME in Burton had loads of Charizards, Warios, Palutena's, Dark Pit's, King Dedede's and Lucina's stacked up all over the tills for £14.99 a pop. I would have regretted quitting on Amiibo very quickly with the earlier shortages after seeing all of these but I still wasn't impressed with the quality on the more detailed characters anyway so I'm not losing any sleep.

Good to see some of the previously "MEGA R@RE" figures available to buy for those that want them though.
