This is why I bought all 12. It happened with Skylanders. Once the second wave comes out stores start phasing out the 1st line of the figures.

Nintendo fans! Make sure you get the figures you wan't/need before their gone! You don't wan't to deal with Ebay scalpers.

I ordered 4 so far, but I will probably extend it to include more of them.

I am wondering if I will even use them, or just keep them in their packaging as collectors items..

Well if the packaging works anything like Skylanders. You can keep them in and still use them. We will have to wait and see.

lol, I just added in the rest of wave 1 and placed a second order for wave 2.. I'm such a nerd.

Darn. These figures could become really valuable. 0.o

Will they disclose which characters will be limited or will they keep that secret so people feel they will have to buy as many as they can so they don t miss out on the limited editions?

Looks like I'll be ordering all of them D:
