Interested in amiibo? Did you just buy a new house to contain your expanding collection? Then subscribe to this thread! Its purpose is to be a clearing house for availability/deals/tips/trades for amiibo. Find a rare amiibo available somewhere? Post it here! End up with an extra one that someone else might want? Let everyone know! Need that special amiibo and are willing to pay shipping? Ask for it here!
 
I'll endeavor to keep this first post updated with two things: Tools and resources for tracking down and checking availability of amiibo, and a list of who wants what, for anyone who's out and about and comes across a motherlode. It's left up to individuals to arrange shipment/payment, though. Please play nice, this isn't eBay. ;)
 
Post your resources and info, along with wants and haves, and I'll update this post as I can.
 
Stores that you wouldn't expect amiibo to be in

Tools and Resources

  • Someone wrote a script that tweets whenever stock or prices change on amiibo at Amazon. Follow @amiibo_tracker to get updates.
  • amiibo subreddit (Lots of good info/insight. Clearly not a well-kept secret).
  • Google Docs spreadsheet with amiibo store availability and comments (unsure how often updated, YMMV)
  • Another Google Docs spreadsheet with amiibo store availability and comments (again, YMMV)
  • Target Inventory Checker (thanks to Prime for posting this and the numbers)
    • Target DCPI numbers for amiibo

Have or Want
Some basic guidelines on the spirit of the "Want" list:
This is envisioned as an easy single place to look and see if someone's looking for an amiibo that you've come across. If you post your wants here, know that there's an expectation that you'll pay someone back for it, along with shipping. Of course, it's up to the individual who bought if they want to gift it, but I doubt if anyone's expecting this to be a, "buy it for me!" list.
Also for purchasers, this list doesn't mean, "buy it at any price", since anyone can do that. Its intent is to have a way for someone to grab an amiibo at MSRP for someone who doesn't have any in their area. Best to buy from stores that have an easy return policy, if need be.
Neither the Amiibo Hunt thread, nor its creator, nor the CS administration team is responsible for working out the details of amiibo transactions. Those can be taken care of in PMs. Public displays of appreciation are approved of. :D

Wait, were they in Wave 3? I don't care about Robin but i specifically remember not seeing Palutena in any future releases. Or is this just your speculative future wish list?

Yes, speculative future, but I hope they follow through with their promise to make the entire roster

Updated with Robok's and Plant's desires. Also added mine, some of them I'm not sure how much I need, gotta think about it a bit. And I may or may not have Meta Knight preordered, I'm not sure. Best Buy's kinda confusing that way.

Looking at that Amiibogeddon shit, it looks like nobody is ever getting a Shulk unless they preordered in time. "sold out/sold out"??

 

 

Sorry, i should've seen you type that, but i have the flu and aren't thinking clear.

 

Point taken. :P

Just means that stores and GameStop.com aren't taking pre-orders. Stores should still have some available on release.
