This may be the first time I preorder something since Reach. I↨want that DK amiibo and they sold out of Amazon quick as fuck.
>>
>No portal needed!

Wow, Nintendo marketing does something right for once.

Every time I hear parents complaining about Skylanders amongst themselves, one of the number one things they bring up is the fact that they require all sorts of different doodads and accessories with each new series.
>>
>>265349653
>↨
Is this like a marketing line error?
>>
>>265349653
I'll buy two sets to sell them online when they sell out of stores. Hell, maybe even more.
>>
FUCKING CHILDREN
>>
Are those Big Hero 6 amiibos?
Or is it for Disney Infinity?
>>
>>265349653
>and they sold out of Amazon quick as fuck.
Uhhh.... you dense or something?
http://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Link-amiibo-wii-u/dp/B00N4ABVOM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1411694599&sr=8-1&keywords=amiibo

If they ever went out of stock, they came back pretty goddamn quick seeing as how they've been listed for a few weeks now and I haven't seen them sold out once.
>>
>>265350757
What do you think?
>>
>>265349984
That doesn't actually work when something saturates shelves. Mark my words, this is not going to work and you'll be left with several dozen of them that you can't get rid of.
>>
>>265351231

Yeah,I already looked it up.It would make no sense for Disney themed Amiibos.
Would be kinda cool though.
>>
will the whole roster have amiibos or only some characters?
>>
But is there a release date?
>>
>>265351613
Only some initially. Then if it gets popular more will be added.
>>
>>265351613
Eventually, right now it's just a few
>>
>>265351613
Not sure yet. It would look that way, but it's not positive.

They're going to have figures that cover other games as well, like Mario Party and Treasure Tracker.
>>
>was JUST playing Halo Reach
>see this thread
>I've already preordered a Peach amiibo for my girlfriend
This is getting spooky...
>>
With my store discount, I can get the initial 12 for $135 - $140. Not bad.
>>
>>265351954
Calm the fuck down, Mike.
>>
>>265351954
Why the fuck is it spooky?

can someone explain this shit to me?

Does having an amiibo actually give you some advantage or is it just skylander kiddy shit
>>

>nobody else gets anything as cool
>not even Samus who would make sense posing with her blaster firing
That's some hot bullshit Nintendo
>>
>>265352627
What is stopping you from looking it up yourself?

There is tons of information available.

If you don't care enough to find out for yourself, why should anyone take the time to explain to you?
>>
>>265352931
Why did you waste the time posting that?
>>
Really interested to see how the quality of these figures are since they're being priced similarly to the Skylanders/Infinity figures that are pretty mediocre in quality. The E3 pictures looked super good but I get the feeling the actual retail versions will have a quality drop. I find it hard to believe Nintendo selling figures with that level of detail for so cheap.
>>
>>265352931

why waste time being autistic?
>>
>>265352694
If there's anybody that deserves to get the cool thing, it's Mario.

Mario gets the cool thing priority.
>>
>>265353023
>Why did you waste the time posting that?
How about you look it up and find out yourself?

You have a wealth of knowledge stored just in front of you.

If you won't bother trying to find out, why should I bother explaining it?
>>
>>265353295

Why should you bother wasting time being so mad?
>>
I want Ness, Charizard and Sonic amiibos just to have. I probably won't use them that much anyway.
>>
>>265353237
>Mario
>deserving anything
Fuck you Mario gets everything he goddamn wants and more.
>>
But you can't even use them until the Wii U version comes out. Or the N3DS.
>>
>>265353430
Why should you waste time being this retarded?

Amiibos release when Smash U releases

You do realize they're based off of their portrait art, right?
Also, in all honesty, Mario's portrait pose kinda sucks and the fireball effect on the figure is lame.
>>
>>265354717
So wait, the Amiibo plays battles by itself? That's kinda lame.

>Duck Hunt amiibo
>A amiibo for Bowser Jr. AND every single koopaling
>Shulk amiibo
>G&W amiibo
>R.O.B. amiibo

Just the fact that I can have figurines of Nintendo characters that have never had toys of them before makes me want to collect them all.
>>

My nigga Captain Falcon better be in the next series they release. I get the feeling Nintendo will save the more niche characters for last.

Have they said how long the wait will be between sets? It's kinda shitty how Skylanders and Disney Infinity show off all these clearly finished characters but don't sell most of the toys until weeks or months after the game releases.

I had the idea of an Amiibo fight league, make a thread on /vg/ keep standings, everyone can train there own amiibos and shit.

I'm not autistic enough to put it in motion though

They're nice figures with nice bonuses for the full game. They aren't absolutely needed to play the game (i.e Skylanders)

Not him but I've been pleasantly surprised with X/Y so far. I heard they had a bigger budget this time around, and it shows. It also helps that they didn't get their script destroyed in a natural disaster or whatever it was that turned Black/White to shit.

Still don't fully understand if Amiibos are playable or not or if they're just for dogfighting.

holy fucking shit why can't they just give the animation studio some good writers to accompany that gorgeous fucking animation jesus christ Blastoise blew smogonbird into last fucking friday.
>>
>>265358405

It seems like they're for dogfighting but it just seems like a pretty stupid concept so I still have trouble believing that's what they're for.

I don't know why anyone would buy what is essentially stat boosts for the computer rather than something you yourself can play as.
>>
>>265349653
Who are the two characters in the middle by themselves?
>>
>>265356383
Nope. If I had to guess I'd say when the New 3DS launches in the west.

We've seen an Amiibo already not in the first set. Zelda. Also the 3 pikmin, Tom Nook, another mario (The regular version), another Link, another Bowser, and another Samus.
>>
>>265358601
ALLOW ME TO CORRECT MYSELF.
I REALIZE IT IS NOT SMOGONBIRD BUT EDGEZARD. FORGIVE ME.
>>
>>265358710
>second set has a second Mario, Bowser, and Samus
Fucking Nintendo is going to churn out a dozen different Marios before they ever release the entire Smash roster aren't they?
>>
>>265358662
Because you can already play with stat boosts yourself. You can freely customize characters to add strength, speed, and defense, as well as abilities like "easy perfect shield".

And the writing is alright. For a kid's show aimed primarily to sell toys, that is..

I legit chocked up during the Espurr episode. Too bad the dub VAs can't act for shit and ruined it.

Fuck it. Wait 2 weeks then get people's NNIDs. Give them an additional 2 weeks, start the tourney on December 21st. Or better yet a week earlier and have it end on the 24th. Have a grand prize be a game or eShop bucks.

Youu know what, yeah fuck it. Spectator mode exists. Can have the host (me) join the game then self destruct and then stream that shit. I need a drawfag here to make a banner. matter of fact

Probably something to do with mk8 support and that pack. maybe the Pikmin count as Olimar in that. Or ACNL and Pikmin 3 updates.
