Man it stinks how Marth wasn't stocked very well. I'm hoping when the newness of the amiibo's wears off that he'll be easier to find for you guys who're looking to get him.. Yea, I know it's kinda doubtful but you never know! :3

^ Well considering he has sold out pretty much everywhere, Nintendo might realize that he's in higher demand than they thought and ship more Marth Amiibos. (and ones of the other Fire Emblem characters when they release too) Or at least I hope so anyway. A lot of people can't get Marth even though they want him.

^Well from what I've been reading online Marth & Villager were among the small list of characters that were released in limited quantities so we're probably not going to be seeing anymore after the end of December. Man if this is true: it sucks MAJOR a** for a LOT of hard core amiibo collectors. :<

It looks like Amiibo is a big money maker and Marth, Villager and Wii Fit Trainer have not been discontinued.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-12-07/nintendo-heads-for-best-holiday-in-years-as-profit-seen-tripling.html



It's nice to hear that the Amiibo are doing good and if Nintendo does restock more of those 3 people will have wasted so much cash on the Marth and Villager Amiibo's for no reason.

I never thought they would just discontinue 3 of their Amiibos, if they're going to restock the other ones from this first wave, there's no reason to not restock ones that also sold out. I'll just be getting Villager when I find him. And Marth whenever he gets restocked.

We all knew the Amiibos would sell really well.

Definitely glad to hear that tidbit from NoA.

It would be ridiculous if three of the Amiibos were discontinued in less than a month after their release. I'll definitely try to pick up a Marth Amiibo when I'm able to.

It seems like Best Buy will get more Marth's soon.

Go Nintendo wrote:Coming from a Best Buy Canada rep...

At this stage we will not be getting anymore Villager or Trainer, Marth is coming soon but stock will run out quick with these so keep an eye out!

Thanks to Emily for the heads up!

I feel like Best Buy will only get a few Marth's and Walmart, Target and Toys R US have removed the listing for Marth. So Best Buy might charge a bit more for him sadly.

Why discontinuing Villager? He was my most wanted one out of the currently "available" (or really, not available since they're sold out everywhere Razz)

Some retailers have some of the wave 2 Amiibos available now! They mostly seem to just have Diddy Kong, Zelda, and Little Mac from what I can find around the internet. Although most stores probably won't have any for at least a few days. I'm still waiting on Pit myself.

I checked Best Buy's wesbsite a while ago and It lasted Zelda, Captain Falcon and Little Mac out at my local store and it listed Diddy as 2 to 5 days. Pit and Luigi still had placeholder dates.

According to a rumor, Fox, Donkey Kong, and Samus will also be discontinued next. I'm not quite sure I believe this rumor honestly, they can't just discontinue all of the wave 1 Amiibos...I wonder if they'll add them to an online store or Club Nintendo.

I just want my Pit when all the wave 2 Amiibos are out. I haven't looked to see if any stores in my area have any wave 2 Amiibos.

I hope the wave one amiibo's aren't discontinued. IF I don't get Mario because I waited for a family member [or friend] to get him for me for Christmas & I don't end up getting him (more so because he's not available after Christmas) then I'm going to be pretty upset. :/

^ Well Mario is...Mario, so I doubt his Amiibo will be discontinued. It just seems like the ones Nintendo thinks are "less popular" will be discontinued so they have more shelf space for the more popular ones. :/ That's why I'm hoping they add an online store so you can buy any Amiibos you want from it, without having to worry about shelf space.

The Rosalina & Luma amiibo is Target exclusive! The Zelda, Diddy and Little Mac amiibo's also come out tomorrow. Is amyone picking any of them up?

http://www.target.com/p/nintendo-amiibo-rosalina-luma-tgt-ex/-/A-16811585#prodSlot=medium_1_21&term=amiibo

I will and try to pick them all up tomorrow. Though Mac seems to be stocked low so I might not be able to find him.
