Alex says, "There has been a lot of confusing reports on the state of amiibo these the past few weeks. Nintendo and multiple sources are contradicting each other over the discontinuation of certain figures."
This is just getting silly. I'm inclined to believe the gamestop email, picked up Zelda and Diddy Kong at meijer tonite.
Great. Now just make a statement about the status of the Gamecube controller adaptor. Discontinued or Not? I thinks drawing more concern at the moment then anything!
They already confirmed that the adaptor is not discontinued.
Nintendo should just mass produce the heck out of these amiibo's to redicule "collector's" who are willing to spend $100 on average per "toy".
I repeat. If something is made to be collectible it isn't. That's like back in the day when people thought they'd put their kids through college on their beanie baby collection. The intrinsic value of anything is what someone will pay for the item not what's written in a book. Ask longtime baseball card collector's.
Yea except it's second hand sellers selling them for outrageous prices. None of which that money actually goes back to Nintendo. All Nintendo has to do is see how popular they are & make more.
Local GameStop says they are discontinued.
Wait a minute, nintendo just said right there. None have been discontinued and only some might be hard to get at the moment due to high demand and shelf space! They may return later. Just cuz GameStop listed them as discontinued, now everyone takes their word for it? I might not mind a couple of them down the road, for collector purposes only. Duck hunt one would be a good one to grab!
