Be great if nintendo allows mario to cameo. Wont be out til at least 2018 though as disney have already announced their release dates upto 2017. Toy Story 4 being main animated film of that year and the usual Marvel and Star Wars spin off.

I hope this is sign of things to come. I think septembers wave will be the most difficult to find. Nintendo should release a pack of 3 bases so u can use them with the 1 game n watch amiibo. As some will want to display all 4 poses.

I'm only collecting the smash waves for now. Decided that once my Meta-Kinght order was cancelled and had to get him off ebay. Pac-Man was difficult to find too. So glad it is nearly over. Getting a yarn Yoshi mind as it is quirky and will probably end up as a Christmas decoration.

I imagine once the smash range is over they will announce 3 packs for some of the 49+ figures over the following year. A Kirby Pack will probably be one.

At E3 I think we will get 30th Anniversary Mario Range in 8bit form. Star Fox range announcements and they will show last of smash amiibos. Hoping for a Captain Toad amiibo too mind.

@Alundra-1998 i know. I had it preordered from zavvi for 10.99 but their supplier couldnt get anymore so zavvi cancelled it. Ive managed to get the other 28 for £10.99 each before then. Argos and toysrus confirmed Meta was now discontinued for uk stock so caved and got him on ebay. Im only collecting the smash ones.



dazzleshell commented on Poll: What Are You Most Excited About in the M...:

The tracks add so much replay value for me. Then 200cc. New mii suits is good simply because it makes my amiibos have another function.

Please add dlc 3. Even if just a battlemode dlc. 8 battlemode courses. Even if just updates of best snes n64 and gamecube ones. But add bomb blast option from double dash too.

And add the characters missing... Diddy Kong, Boo, Paratrooper etc.




dazzleshell commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Announces Pre-Order...:

well i managed to pre order them so will be cancelling my game pre order -saving £8. My most expensive amiibo so far has been Meta Knight which cost £30 on ebay from japan.
Im sure will have theirs up within a week mind for those who missed out.



dazzleshell commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

Mario kart dlc for me has been brilliant and i am hoping at e3 they announce another dlc option for battlemode. I stil think toon link would have been a better fit mind but a good test for smash/nintendo kart. Same with hyrule warriors.
I do think it a good thing and at least we have a choice to purchase extras. The same with amiibos. You dont have to get them. I think they have created the smash ballot to add dlc but to also see what people may want in smash nx. Still not sure if i will buy everything.



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

Ordered game only at the game collection for £22. I'm currently collecting the smash amiibos only (if i can get the next waves) so in future might pick up the card amiibos for this. Unless amazon offer game and squid for reasonable price combined.

I definitely want yoshi with amiibo mind.



dazzleshell commented on Poll: Which Characters Do You Want to Win the ...:

In reality I voted for Bomberman. I'd like him as an amiibo too. Billy and Jimmy from Double Dragon would be great. Or Viewtiful Joe.

So none took my fancy in ballot today.

There should be celebrity mii characters too. Miyamoto would be great.

And please make a captain toad amiibo even if he doesn't get in the game.



dazzleshell commented on Talking Point: The Limited Edition Battle With...:

I wish nintendo would just have an order system via their website where you have a week to register and pay for figure. 1 per household. Then the total number required for that country gets manufactured in waves. And sent out once done.
Zavvi has just informed me that they have cancelled my meta knight order as supplier cant get anymore. Got others in wave mind. But annoying as pre ordered in December. Now gotta try and find one.



dazzleshell commented on Iwata Doesn't Feel amiibo Has Shown Its Full P...:

Personally I am collecting them for the figures and their use in certain games is a bonus. If they change to card only format then it wont be as fun and if they do both I would expect to get card included if you purchase the figure. Greedy I know.
If stock continues to be an issue why don't they have an option to register interest in batches of upcoming waves and pay as you do. So they make the amount ordered by a certain cut off date for those who want them but 1 of each figure per address. Amiibo Land as future game would be great too.



dazzleshell commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

I ordered mine from zavvi as cheapest in UK. Was amazed I actually got it on release day as they took extra week with Mario Kart 8.
So glad as I can't play smash properly with the gamepad. And got my old Gamecube contollers down from loft too. Good luck to rest. Hope you get it in time for Christmas at least.



dazzleshell commented on GamePad High Capacity Battery Now Available in...:

@Gamecube5f hi. I had this problem back I n march with console. It is a known fault. Even out of warranty u should have a case for free fix. I sent my console back n got a new 12 month warranty. It is an issue with 'not enough power' within console to boot up. So u get intermittent working and not working when you switch it on. The blinking red light of death. So they replace something inside it. Good luck.

Im in the uk though so uk repair know about it at least. Mine was 32gb model.



dazzleshell commented on New Wii U System Update Goes Live:

@AG_Systems my wii u either turns on straight away or wont turn on with red flashing power light. so i have to turn it off at mains and try again until it works. will see if this update sorts it, if not im sending it in to be looked at. never had a console that doesnt like being switched on.



dazzleshell commented on Nintendo Download: 27th April - Virtual Consol...:

hi everyone. well i downloaded smw this morning for £1.49 as i own it on wii vc but unfortunately since after powering down (as i was gonna play it later today) my wii u is now stuck with a red/amber flashing light and wont turn on?

Has this happened to anyone else and could it be related to me doing the system update last night? Does anyone know of a fix? Ive tried doing the usual mains reset (unplug, wait 15 secs and plug back in) but its no good. Mario U disc locked inside too and it doesnt even attempt to play it. I've emailled Nintendo so waiting for response... thanks



dazzleshell commented on Talking Point: The Pros and Cons of a Wii U Pr...:

I was one of those waiting for a price cut. This is the first Nintendo console since the SNES that I haven't bought on Launch Day. Mainly because of the cost but also because I hardly played on the Wii for the past 2 years.
However when zavvi offered the Premium Pack for just £225 on one of last months Mega Monday Deals It was a done deal.
So now im very happy, the set up on the WiiU is great and i traded my old Wii in for £60 too at Game so I have cash waiting for Pikmin 3, and a lot of Wii games to play that I never got round to (mario galaxy 2 included).
My Nintendo loving self is back with full force.



dazzleshell commented on Nintendo of America Reorganising its Operations:

i went to Nintendo World in 2007 just as mario galaxy launched. Bought some merchandise but it was over priced. It was on my New York to do list of course.
There wasnt much in the store to be honest.

When i have a cup of tea it has to be in my huge nintendo world mug.



dazzleshell commented on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES Pulled from V...:

if you have previously downloaded tmnt on vc and it is not stored on your wii. go to the wii shop and click on downloaded titles. It will still be there for you to download back onto the wii as you already own it. However, if you never got round to downloading it when it was available it is now gone. No doubt once the nickelodeon licence is sorted we'll see it back with hopefully 2, 3, 4 and tournament fighters to purchase. Well, fingers crossed.
