@manu0 they are even LESS likely to get their favourite amiibo figures that way...

On Topic: Here I was thinking about a very minor tear in the top right corner of the box art of my Ness amiibo this morning too...
Now THIS goes and happens...
Makes that tiny tear look like nothing...

I am like REALLY shocked at this...
My Robin, Lucina, Ness AND Pac-Man had all arrived without issues this morning with my two Charizard and Wario which arrived yesterday...

This is just like the Shulk, Meta Knight and the King Dedede amiibo crisis of February...
But I received those three perfectly too...

Regardless of the release date, I have set up a budget of what money to pay in to my PayPal account to cover all of my preorders and I am set to receive all of my orders.

But I do hope it does not get delayed, but it is likely with Nintendo... :/

@Achoo But then Charlosa could at least have the opportunity to choose to keep the preorders or cancel them and allow someone else to preorder.
The original idea of asking yourself at the checkout page allows others to swoop in and preorder them before Charlosa could and that would make it all irrelevant..

@Charlosa. Those wise words are how I have managed to successfully order 41 of 50 Super Smash Bros. Collection amiibo, the three Yarn Yoshi amiibo and all of the Splatoon amiibo including the Squid amiibo.
Some of these I have double dipped and preordered twice as I am a collector.

@Charlosa "Had them both in the basket and on the payment page, but had to ask myself why? Why did I want them? I'm not getting every single Amiibo"

Word of advice regarding amiibo... NEVER ask yourself whether you want to buy them or not until you have been through the checkout process and have received a confimation of preorder... Those are the very wise words I live by.

Alundra-1998 commented on Those Yoshi's Woolly World Yarn amiibo Are Up ...:

@outburst The Yoshi amiibo that is from the Super Smash Bros. Collection or Super Mario Collection is not going to be compatible with Yoshi's Woolly World unfortunately, at least in the UK, according to these two pages...

https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Misc-/amiibo/Figures/Yoshi-932510.html
https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Misc-/amiibo/Figures/Yoshi-951727.html

But regardless, I have my preorders in for the following amiibo.
Green Yarn Yoshi - ShopTo.net
Light Blue Yarn Yoshi - ShopTo.net
Pink Yarn Yoshi - ShopTo.net
Yarn Yoshi Triple Pack - GAME.co.uk

@Grumblevolcano Here is another thing, I have looked up the definition of a scalper and here it is...

Scalper
Someone who purchases large quantities of goods (usually tickets) early with the sole intention of re-selling them at a higher price at a later date (closer to the event).

I have not purchased a "large" quantity of items. I have just purchased two of each item and that's it. I am not going to even consider reselling the items either...

Alundra-1998 commented on GAME Launches UK Pre-Orders for Splatoon amiib...:

@FX102A I spoke to a ShopTo Customer Service Representative and the price rise is because of purchasing better boxes to put the amiibo in as ShopTo.net are now well aware of the collectors value of these items. He even told me that there has been some complaints that the amiibo have been arriving damaged and customers are not happy and ShopTo are not even getting the damaged ones back because of how rare these items have become.

Just on the subject, I have it even worse...

I have got Ness, Charizard, Wario, Wario, Charizard, Robin, Lucina and Pac-Man on preorder at £10.85 each and Jigglypuff, Greninja, Zero Suit Samus, Ganondorf, Zero Suit Samus, Palutena, Dark Pit, Palutena, and Ganondorf at £14.86 each. :/

@Achoo That is the American list of amiibo waves. I believe it has been slightly different for the UK because the Jigglypuff amiibo and Greninja amiibo have a different release date to that of Ness, Lucina, Robin, Pac-Man, Charizard and Wario...

Ness, Lucina, Robin, Pac-Man, Charizard and Wario: April 24th.
Jigglypuff and Greninja: May 29th.

I am sure that we are on more than Wave 4 to be honest...
I am really confused with all these amiibo... I just preorder them all tbh...

Super Smash Bros. Collection Wave One: November 28th 2014.
Super Smash Bros. Collection Wave Two: December 19th 2014
Super Smash Bros. Collection Wave Three: January 23rd 2015
Super Smash Bros. Collection Wave Four: February 20th 2015
Super Mario Collection Wave One: March 20th 2015
Super Smash Bros. Collection Wave Five: April 24th 2015
Super Smash Bros. Collection Wave Six: May 29th 2015
Super Smash Bros. Collection Wave Seven: June 2015
Super Smash Bros. Collection Wave Eight: July 2015

I could have thought those were correct unless I am mixing up waves, could you or someone please let me know or direct me to somewhere that shows which amiibo are from which wave. lol

Alundra-1998 commented on Nintendo's Official UK Store Opens Pre-Orders ...:

I preordered two of the Splatoon XL bundle at 3:14pm today before they put up the One per customer warnings. I have sent them an email explaining the situation and asking if my preorder will be honoured as I placed it before the imposed limits went up.

I don't want to lose my preorders as I have never had an issue on Nintendo Store.

I have a question for anyone who is quite knowledgeable.
I have preordered the Nintendo Wii U version from ShopTo.net and it does not mention the Nintendo Wii version will be included. Does that mean they will be announcing a First Print Edition that I should have waited to preorder or should that preorder that I have made come with the Nintendo Wii version?
