My Majora Mask N3DS XL preorder has ALSO been cancelled because the shop has only received 1/10 of what they expected, so I'll also complain for that.

And demand MK Amiibo as a compensation.

And the next waves.

I got my dispatch notice on teusday, I have used them for years and this is the first time I have not recived an item from them the next day, I ordered one from amazon for a mate and they got it while I am here waiting I would say he is the lucky bastard. Haha

Yes, however in-store preorders end up reaching allocations basically the same day they go live on the tills, so no chance. Being honest I'm not even sure what was going on with this latest wave in-store, as of Thursday we still hadn't received any of them (just yet another box full of Link) when they normally turn up on the Tues/Wed before release.

Ouch. Fingers crossed mate. I had the shipping notes for Sonic and Mega Man from them on Tuesday, too. Sonic arrived on Wednesday and Mega Man on Thursday. Dedede shipped on Friday and he arrived today.

It's impossible to say with Royal Mail. So many potential reasons for delays I suppose.

As I said, fingers are crossed for you bro!

Ah okay. Fair enough. Good work.

I've got King Dedede and Metaknight backordered from fnac.be, hope they don't cancel on me.

The Shulk situation is that bad huh? Called a local store and he told me they got 30 pre-orders for Shulk and the Amiibo situation is terrible for them. Nintendo will deliver a few and it takes a while before they send out another shipment. Sigh.

I only want a few Amiibo (I only own Samus right now) and finding Ike... well, it sucks. He's up to 30 right now at some douchebag stores.

Just a heads up for spanishGAF, and maybe a good ingo to put in the fnac (ES) info of the OP.
Dont, I repeat, DONT preorder amiibos in the FNAC.ES website. They are not going to give them through there and infact they are cancelling every order you do (even new waves not released), and the horrible thing is that they cancelled them after weeks of them being released, fucking up many people.
Theyve also banned amiibo preorders at physical stores and is first come, first served.

Pretty glad theres an eu thread now. Maybe we can talk about the shitty distribution without americans thinking europe is the heaven of amiibos becase some guy put a photo of a denmark saturn with a corridor full of them.

Just reserved a Dedede AND Shulk from Leeds, had a lass call me to tell me they are out of stock and that the website is a seperate company from the store so they have to try and keep up with the stock of the store.

This is awful.

My Toys R Us came through! At first they found Sheik in the back and my heart sank. But then he came out with Shulk!!!

I then went to the FONA store in the same mall just to check. And who was sitting on the shelves? Shulk. So I snatched that one up too :P Such a good day!

Both stores still had multiple Meta Knights and tons of Sonic and Mega Man. Not a single Dedede though. I am so happy!!

My collection for now:


From those ones, the ones that i really need and im missing are Kirby, Trainer and Marth. I would also like Zelda because of importance but even if she still in some stores, she is too ugly.

Then theres figures like Lucario and Diddy I dont really want. And Luigi that I prefer in the Mario party pose.

All my amiibos are prefect besides frwaking Meta Knight. His face has a lot of painting defects and Im thinking og looking for a better one an then change them in the same store. If I cant find him, then I will paint his face with figurine paint when I get them out of the boxes.

Well my attempt in town was pathetic. The worker in Grainger Games seemed really excited about the fact he had a Sonic, I was just like noooooo I WANT META KNIGHT DAMN It. After he told me to stop shouting and banging on the counter he checked his computer and told me they haven't even had one in stock. Sigh.

Yea I've seen four Meta Knights in person now and all of them had some sort of black smudge thing going on. One of them had a lot of black in the center and the others had black crap around those ridges around his mask. That bit was so consistent that I thought it was deliberate and supposed to be shadows. But yours doesn't seem to have them?

Seems it depends of the european country. Some countries get more of a figure than the other. Is a bad way of distributing for NoE, becuase I think each country needs to see how many stores that are going to seel this things are, and then distribute them equally, not some store getting 3 meta knights and 0 shulks, and viceversa.

UK Amazon delivered my Meta Knight this morning and my Shulk and MegaMan are also on the way.

No idea why I got 2 emails stating I wouldn't possibly get them until June. Maybe a lot of people cancelled their orders. Also got another Trainer on the way from them too, so I can use her to swap.

Happy days.

I think Meta Knights mask is supposed to be filthy. Pretty much every Meta Knight I've seen (in person and online) has had "dirt" on it. It's weird because the Meta Knight Smash 4 render looks pretty clean.

Saw two yesterday at across two stores, one each. One of them was gone today and then I went to another town that had two more in the same store. However, across those three stores plus three extra stores that also carried amiibo, only one of them had a DeDeDe (well, the first one yesterday had one but a group of three guys already hogged the amiibo shelf and snatched up the DeDeDes and two Shulks). All teh while you could build a tower out of Mega Man and Sanic.

I don't think so. The render is what your amiibo is supposed to look like. The only deviation so far is Villager because his eyes are consistently farther apart on ALL the amiibo I have seen since launch.

Welp, since amazon.fr cancelled my Wave 3b preorders subsequently I cancelled Mega Man and Sonic myself ;(.. Ordered the whole wave at a local gamestore (the only one I know that has the whole wave in stock) yesterday and just got the message that all of them have been sent today. Yay =)

But honestly, in most shops Shulk, Dedede and Meta Knight are sold out, in Switzerland. That's pretty much a first for me, I can't remember when something sold out at releasedate here, ever. What's up Nintendo =/

People complained about Metaknight being to OP in Smash so they nerfed the stock.

I can understand for Sonic, he's basically Mario levels of popularity. Mega Man is pretty baffling though... gives me some small hope for receiving a Pac-Man in April.

I'm in Denmark. I would love to help you guys out, but we get next to no stock here. The only reason why many of them are still available is because there's next to no demand. And I would feel bad sending what stock we get out of the country, if that makes sense. Sorry to disappoint

bol.com has Dedede and Metaknight listed again for €15,99, but they are "preorders" with a february 20 release date. Either bol has a time travel machine or Nintendo is restocking on february 20 2016. Or it is a mistake and they'll cancel everyone's orders later.

You can order and pay after delivery, so it doesn't hurt to give it a try. You never know.

(I'm afraid that they don't ship outside the Netherlands and Belgium)

Which FONA had the Shulk? did they have more? I live in Copenhagen and couldn't find any Shulks searching around Frederiksberg yesterday.
