Oh cool, there's a UK/EU thread - I'll subscribe to this one instead.

I'm still in two minds to buy Ike and Robin from Shopto and Shulk from elsewhere, or just keep my final amiibo to Pac-Man for now...

I want Shulk :(
And Metaknight :(

At least I can probably secure a Dedede thanks to a amiibro who got two of them. But even that is unconfirmed.

I can't believe how this happened, I had them all preordered back in december and I went to the mediamarkt at the usual time which up till now always had enough stock that I could actually compare 6 amiibo for paint quality. And now they were all sold out :(

Really happy we have an EU/UK thread. Considering how wave 3 and onwards has gone for us in the UK I think we need to separate ourselves. I've always been on the lookout for UK Amiibo hunters so this is incredibly handy to talk on.

Just ordered Megaman and Sonic. Gonna take a guess and say everyone has those. Now to hunt for the other 3.

When I get home I'll post all my Amiibo notes.

Marth is kinda in-between uncommon and rare for me.

I judged rarity by how many online stores had them in stock and their average resell price on Amazon and eBay. It's not a perfect system, but I did the best I could.

I was on the hunt this morning at dawn (in fact, I shorten my holidays for this), and I was totally unlucky (beside Megaman/Sonic). It's a real nightmare now...

Thanks so much for this, really hard to have a view on the UK Amiibo scene in the other thread. Might as well post my Mega Man here as well then.

Wish I had preordered Meta Knight & Shulk.

Also OP, might me worth adding this amiibo tracker site.

OP, I would put Argos, Tesco Direct, and ToysrUS(UK) on the list for UK retailers, I've scored some rare ones from those 3 sites mainly.

http://www.tesco.com/direct/
http://www.toysrus.co.uk/index.jsf
http://www.argos.co.uk

Got Charizard on preorder, only Amiibos I want left that I hope are in the next wave are Jigglypuff, R.O.B, and Bowser Jr.

I would love if Nintendo announce a wave for the kooplings but that won't happen :(

My delivery with Mario, Toon Link and Mega Man arrived yesterday. I will pick up my Shulk which pre-ordered a few weeks ago, next week.

I wanted only two amiibos, but now I ended up with 10. In April there are 3 more I will buy!

Good call on a UK thread. Come ooooon Wave 4 preorders.

I managed to snag Charizard and Wario at Nintendo UK, but am scared I won't be quick enough to get my hands on the other 4. Shopping for toys shouldn't be this stressful.

OK so I'm missing just Meta Knight and Shulk. Went hunting today for them.

Argos: No stock
Toys R Us: No stock
GAME (x 2 stores): No stock
Tesco: No stock
Asda: No stock
Smyths: No stock; but they did have one of the best displays of Amiibo I've seen around here:



And it's not even that impressive.

I do have an extra UK version of Dedede however, if anyone would like to trade (for MK or Shulk; EU, Jap or US versions).

On a happier note, here is my collection (before adding Dedede, Mega Man and Sonic today):

I've got everything else apart from MK and Shulk, and I have everything else that's been announced pre-ordered, so I am just missing those two right now.

My trade pile consists of; WFT, Toon Link and Dedede - all sealed in UK boxes.

Fuck it, I just paid 19 delivered for a Japanese Shulk. That's right at my limit, but I've been lucky enough to get pretty much every other Amiibo for around 10, so I don't mind going over now and again.

You won't mate. Only Sonic and MM they had enough for preorders, I even read the corporate document where they ask managers to offer 20%discounts on in-stock Amiibos, 5 of used game or 1000 carrots for their fidelity program ('cause yeah, after they screwed me over that's what I'm inclined to do, to give you more money.... fuck that). They anticipate to never ever receive more stock unless Nintendo actually manages to produce it.

I'm pretty annoyed at Amazon UK. Twice now they've failed be in regards to Amiibo and both times on the release date. First Little Mac and now Shulk. So annoying and it makes me concerned for my wave 4 pre-orders I have there. Got in really early (within 10 minute of them Going up), but I'm still worried. I better get them all!

He gave me the same story - which is odd as he said he had two spares originally, enough for me and you. Strange. Oh well.

If you don't mind Japanese versions, you can get Dedede for around 16 and Shulk for around 19. Alternatively, in a few weeks when my extra Dedede arrives, you can have my spare from me for cost price if you're still in need of one by then.

Where from? Do I need to do all the shenanigan with forwarding services? I'd prefer a US or EU packaging but if I can only have a jpn one then I'll gladly take it.
Thanks for the offer, it'd be super super lovely but are you serious? Which region and what does 'cost price' means more or less in terms of / if I might ask

Ebay if you want the Japanese versions:

Shulk
Dedede

When I get my second Dedede (approx 2-3 weeks), I'd sell it to a fellow Amiibro for what I paid, which is 15. I'm in the UK.

I have already paid the entire price. I'll burn their shop down if they will not give me my Shulk, especially because now it seems impossible to find it elsewhere...

I was furious.
I had entirely paid for all five and they only gave me MM and Sonic. They also didn't want to give me back my money 'cause they say you can only put them on a different order/preorder, no cash back even when it's their fault. I was about to punch the dude in the face, I didn't want to call the police 'cause they've got more important things to do but after I threatened to sue their ass for stealing my money they acted like they were doing me some kind of super special treatment and gave me back my 45. What I'm scared about now it's also for my Wave 4 preorders... I'm gonna raise hell, hopefully the other place where I preordered will back me up just in case.

But I'm super pissed that after having paid the whole shit two months in advance I am now left out cold :(

Nice thread. I've slowed down on them for now, ended up cancelling my Shulk, Mega Man, Dedede and Meta Knight pre-orders but I'm glad Mega Man isn't that hard to get (yet).

So far I own Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, Marth, Pit, Little Mac, Ike, Lucario and Rosalina. The only one I've opened up is Villager however :P. Have all of the last wave ordered apart from Wario. I think I'm going to go for the Super Mario Bros versions of Peach and Mario :)

If you're selling, let me know - I got screwed by Argos who took my preorder, then cancelled it the next day and didn't notify me, so I sat for a fortnight before checking my order status, and missed Dedede being available anywhere else.

Btw, thanks to Spades for the link, in the end even if I'm not happy about having one Amiibo with japanese packaging, I only paid 5.50 above the regular price, shipped.
Hopefully the posts won't screw up my package.
If I ever end up being able to get a EU Dedede I'll just give away my JPN figure... again, for 5 more I'm not too fussed, it's more about the consistency of my collection.

Guys, going to bed in a few, if a Shulk or Meta Knight or even Dedede become available (EU or US packaging only) please for the love of God order them for me for cost+shipping! many know me here, I'll pay you back immediately! And I'll make it up to you the next time of course
