I updated the amiibo checklist with Corrin and Bayonetta, but I am unable to post the image because I'm getting a "connection error." Is there a reason for that? Should I just post a link?
I also found a way to cut off one of the rows and move those amiibo up, so it looks much cleaner now!
That's a great idea! i made a separate checklist for amiibo cards, but it doesn't seem to be very popular.
So do we talk about amiibo cards here? Or are they still getting tossed around?
Not really a place to discuss them here, just thought I'd throw you the idea, since I thought of it last time you posted.
Thread seems to be at a slow start so I'll post brand new pictures of my collection. The Star Fox/Animal Crossing shelf is a little bare, hoping to fill it up with the Jakks and some amiibo soon.
So lets see the goods anon, post you collection.
I have a spare Metroid in the box that I was thinking of using as a giveaway prize, but so far, turnout for the giveways has been low.
So if you want to see the Metroid as a giveaway make sure you enter this month's giveaway and show your support.
Do you have any idea if the three 2.5" 8-bit figures at Walgreens (B&W Mario, Star Mario, White Link) will continue to be an exclusive, or will they eventually get sold in other stores?
I say this because it will probably take months before any of the eight Walgreens in my area will get these.
Probably because your contests are a bit boring. It's not much of a contest at all, just "show me your Jakks collection." I'd say at least make up some fun Nintendo toy photo challenge. Maybe theme it around the holiday of the month or something. That being said, I'd love the Jakks Fox or Metroid. I just don't really have a Jakks "collection." Just like two figures.
Fuck I never found ONE blue pikmin in my area and now even Jakks is telling me I'm SOL on this.
Not even a future multipack or something.
If anyone is interested, Hobbylink has Figuarts Yoshi as part of their Christmas sale rignt now for 2100 jpy. I ordered on Sunday night and when I got a shipping notice the next day the invoice showed that I was receiving the 1up bonus. Good times all around.
Its not really a contest at all, just a giveaway.
I was reading another thread and they were talking about how sad they were that /toy/ used to have so many giveaways but they stopped. So I figured I'd start doing them as a way to increase thread engagement and community togetherness.
Looks like Jakks wave 3 and 4 figures are finally starting to show up in my neck of the woods. Grabbed a 4" Peach and a 2.5" Skull Kid at Toys r Us, and then I saw Gravity Suit Samus and 8-bit Mario and Donkey Kong at Target.
I've got a Smash section, and then a spot for other figures that's just organized by scale, back to front. My non-Nintendo figs are in a separate spot.
I don't have any big statues, per se, but I have a few Gachapons and stuff.
I tend to only collect by scale, so that they look good when I display them together. The nendos are a bit off, though.
I also own amiibo but I display them together away from the articulated figures.
Anyone know where to find the Mario Hotwheels aside from Gamestop? I've been to 6 different ones in the area and got all of them except the Mario 2 car.
I haven't even seen any of these cars in Canada yet.
Has anyone in Vancouver (or Missasauga) been to the Nintendo booths in the malls. Vancouver's is in Metropolis in Metrotown, don't know about Missasauga. Do they sell anything interesting?
I went to a Nintendo booth they set up at the mall in Mississauga, they had a couple WiiU and 3DS demo machines to play games, assorted shirts, mostly Super Mario characters, and a couple Pokemon and Legend of Zelda designs IIRC, I kind of liked the 8-bit Super Mario Bros and Legend or Zelda Christmas sweatshirts. There were also some hats, posters, key chains and assorted plush toys. The plush were mostly Super Mario series and Pokemon characters.
Sonic Boom still going strong apparently, enough to get a few more toys next year. squared ones are what i believe are most important
>inb4 someone bitches and moans that they should be little diecast carts or something instead of real cars with Mario decos
>"waaahhhh, a product exists that doesn't appeal to me!"
>can we stop and appreciate that the Dr Mario car is a fucking hearse?
Someone says this every time these cars come up, too. It's not a hearse, it's a station wagon. There's a difference.
>have to wait until February to play as Bayo in Smash
>have to wait even longer for the amiibo
A pre-Bayo life feels like a hollow life.
The only champs I can think of are Blue, Lance, Red, Steven, Wallace, Cynthia, Alder, and Diantha
Also, gen 3 is the worst gen behind gen 6
>Liking too much water, trumpets, and mega evos
Possibly. GSC preorders ususally last for a while, compared to other companies. Worse comes to worse, she'll go on and off every few days until release. amiami has so far been the cheapest place to find her, but most places don't make you pay for the figures anyways until they are released.
You pay when it's released. They will ask you how you want to pay now, but you don't pay for anything until the figure (or that months order has all the figures released, if you get multiple in the same month) is released.
Haven't seen any of these anywhere within the last few months. Thank god I have them all.
Also, weirdly I've sen a large absence of Pacman and Mega Man.
Officially from my knowledge what iv'e seen both physical stock across several states, forum boards and online shops these are the rare ones.
These are either really hard to find or you gotta pay higher for.
These are the 6 big ones that have gotten no real restock and are easily always $45+.
>Wii Fit Trainer
>tfw only paid $20 for a WFT NIB post-scalp era
What fucking sucks is most of those high price ones are ones I've been dying to get.
>"Gen 3 is the bestest"
All I was trying to do was list the nendos I'd like to see, then he started responding with his autism because I listed a character he didn't like. It was like 5am when we started arguing, so I'm sorry my dumb, sleep-deprived ass thought replying would be a good idea. Now let's carry on with talking about Nintendo toys.
May be the wrong place for this, but since it is a Nintendo title I figured it would fit.
Anyone have any Yokai Watch figures? Which are your favorites? How are they compared to other toys? I'm thinking of getting some of the plamo, I do a lot of gunpla but wanted to get something maybe with more articulation.
Got the model kit of the one in your picture. Jibanyan looks cute and only takes a few minutes to assemble, plus the stickers aren't to hard either, but the hands and feet ones look kind of rough.
On the more expensive side, there's the chogokin Jibanyan. More articulation and generally better quality. However the model kits have more variety, like Venoct , Kyubi, Baddinyan, ect
I bought the middle evos yesterday and I like them. I don't think they are too big like some have said. They are just right for my purposes
Sorry, also going to hijack this for Yokai. My TRU got in the "medal moment" figures, blind bag medals, and the collector book pages today.
I bought Noko, and it seems like the figure was made too small? The medal doesn't fit correctly against the flat parts of its body like the promo photo. It's still cute and the paint apps are actually pretty good.
Picked up a Boo, Yellow and Purple Pikmin yesterday. Saw everything of the current 4" wave EXCEPT Link, it was heartbreaking. Gonna hold off on Gravity Samus though, it was a pain in the ass fixing her up the first time.
>mfw my buddy has been wanting one for a while and that exact TRU is the one we usually go to
T-Thanks impossibly coincidental anon.
>metroid no longer listed on TRU website at all
>super dumpy Toys R Us has remnants of the latest wave with the pixel characters
>local one that is super clean hasn't restocked since pink Yoshi
Just wanted to drop in with the contest results!
By random draw the winner is Jason from California!
Congrats and look in your email for a response from me!
Pic related, is Jason's Link figure
They got a small restock at Best Buy online during the summer in Canada.
I remember they had like 15-20 WFTs in June and it sold out in like 5 minutes.
Then there was a smaller restock of Rosalina and King Dedede in July and they sold out even faster.
I got lucky and managed to get King Dedede. I checked the Best Buy site like a day or 2 after and saw 1 available. I guess someone either cancelled or their payment didn't go through.
Got this guy preordered on TOM. Says a January release date. Never ordered from these guys before. Anyone have experience?
I preordered the samurai boba fett from them last August and it was released last month. Their response was that their supplier hasn't gotten them in and they were sorry that I couldn't get it before the holidays.
If I didn't want the figure as badly as I do, I'd cancel and tell them to fuck off, but since I'm a patient person I'll give it a little more time.
Just found two Foxes at the Kmart on 3rd/fairfax location in LA this afternoon. nothing interesting for the 3" ones though
Bought tom nook amiibo at target. day after it goes on sale on amazon for 9 bucks. fml.
BTW, Mabel, Nook, Link, Zelda, Ganon, Mewtwo, toad, ZSS, and the AC 3 pack are discounted on amazon. Singles are 9 ish, and the 3 pack is 24.
Still looking to buy a metroid through someone. If your local store has restocked from Christmas, I'll cover price and shipping. I've been to three towns and can't find anything but Donkey Kong.
I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm glad these sets got made. And I always wanted a King of Red Lions.
Here you are NintendOP, updated again. I took your advice and added a card counter to the amiibo cards. I also made a Pallete Swap section for Famicom R.O.B., migrated some of the other cards over from the other checklist and removed the rumored Super Mario Wario, Rosalina, and DK. It's not healthy to cling to false hope.
To everyone, let me know if you think anything should be changed! Thanks!
got SO MANY DAMN AMIIBO between buying with Christmas money (zero suit samus and falco) and birthday/Christmas gifts (green yarn Yoshi from my grandma and retro 3 pack/mewtwo from brother)
>mfw birthday on December 25th
At this point in time I doubt we're going to get any merchandise of FE characters that aren't from Awakening or Fates. I'm surprised that Caeda got a Nendoroid.
I wouldn't mind a Lyn, Ike or Ephraim figure myself but I'm not going to get my hopes up
while i am a huge loz fan i am not especially fond of MM at all but like you i totally dig this fellas design
+ given i have ss link's figma & ww link's nendo, he makes a great edition for representing the eras while being his own class of figure, if that makes sense.
>a fully poseable Pikachu figure
I still can't decide if this is amazing or a huge waste of time.
He better be able to stand on all fours or I'm gonna be pissed. I'm worried his neck won't crane properly.
I work at a toysrus, are there any good pokemon figures I can get that I might've looked over?
I already bought pic related, and I'm considering getting a Pikachu/Lucario/Mewtwo/Charizard amiibo the next time they're in stock.
in-hand shots of next wave from ebay. also no more mystery accessories apparntly
Also has Cat Luigi and Gold Mario...but i dont think you want to see Gold Mario.
Based Walgreens Manager/Best Friend netted me this today.
4 inch Peach had pink grannie panties
2 inch Peach has what looks like white pansu panties
Someone at Jakks is totally based
I never even thought to check the nintendo booth to be honest. I'm in the Vancouver area as well and I've kept my eyes open for these for awhile. Still no luck
>I need my Dr Mario hearse
Can't wait for the Nintendo Nendos coming out this month
I order from them a lot... Their prices are a bit more but I find are generally worth it if you do the over $100 for the free EMS shipping. I buy more stuff from them than just figures though. The figures wont get to you as fast as directly through good smile, but not a huge wait. Maybe just a week more than those who receive them from GSC
oop, here's Waluigi too. lookin good, and i want one
I need to see him along side Mario, Luigi and Wario before I decide if I want him or not. I have a statue of Waluigi that is pretty much the exact right size, but I feel like this figure may be a bit too short.
>promised myself to abandon waifufaggotry and escapism as a New Years resolution
>still want to buy that Mega Sableye because it reminds me of Phoebe
CANT WAKE UP
Elite Four figures when? I would even take some cheap gashapon toys if they existed
That picture makes me remember I still need to get good at drawing (not robots) so I can draw her well. For gods sake make it stop, this obsession is going to be my downfall
>Elite Four figures when?
This. I would pay infinite amounts of money for Drake and Phoebe. Maybe Lance and Drasna too.
>my roommate bought me the game bundles for christmas
>these got found in-stores unannounced the next day
>mfw i dont have the heart to tell him about them but I know he'll find out
The Target at Pasadena Tx had wave 5. It's completely sold out though, same with almost all the other Targets in the Houston area. It caught several people by surprise considering how long it took to get Wave 4.
Went to Walmart last week and got Fox and Dr. Mario for 10$ each. Also found Skull Kid.
Oh christ i'm retarded. Why didn't i read the year?!
Wow in the past year or so we have gotten more Star Fox stuff then the compiled 20+ years.
Between Amiibos, World of Nintendo figures (with more planned), a future statue from Gamestop and the plush stuff, this is amazing.
Much like the Amiibos, it's because we have had NOTHING of said characters and we are eating anything we can get. It's why people went full retard for Little Mac or Princess Palutina
Book store was closing and they had an acrylic stand and let me take it for 20 bucks makes a great amiibo stand.
yes I know I have a problem
>F4F Arwing statue
It's been over a year now...
Follow up today, had another day off hit up another city, Found a big Donkey Kong at an EBgames for clearance price and 4 more blue pikmin at TRU. If anyone in Southern Ontario is in this thread, there are tons of Foxes in London and Sarnia
yeah that's what I mean. It was at my local flee market for 20$. It was very strange. She came with a morph ball outer shell that you could bend her and put her inside. Pretty sure it was a fever dream.
I'd say you would have a problem if you had multiple game and watch figures for all the poses.
Also copped pic related. Excited as duck because I havent seen anything Mario Bros related since the eReader.
Looks like Nendo Kirby to me. I know you might think it's the Takara model kit, but it doesn't look like it to me.
For release date, check amiami, they're usually the best source of information regarding that.
