yep they're cute, I imported from japan and when my niece saw them she wanted a blue so I had to order more this week. was supposed to have my Yoshi bundle from Best Buy but UPS decided not to put it on a truck and now its in Minnesota.

Will that green one sell alone? I'm kind of tempted as a desk toy since it's uniquely not just another plastic toy.

Nintendo really seems to be turning around the amiibo stock issue. I went into Toys R Us yesterday and they had at least 20 of the pink and blue Yoshi. They also had Little Mac, which I know was previously a hard one to get. I was also able to grab the 30th anniversary retro Mario from Best Buy. I am a whole lot more tempted to buy these as an impulse buy, than worry about pre ordering, waiting in line, or paying scalpers.

I actually think they're doing better on the pre-ordering front as well. For instance, Falco is still up for pre-order at Best Buy and I'm pretty sure Dr. Mario was still available up until release day. And even the ones that don't last that long are up exponentially longer than they used to be.

Just yesterday Mewtwo was available for preorder at Walmart for around an hour. That's leagues better than the 3-4 minutes a lot of the earlier waves lasted.

Ok i'm just wondering, if anyone got that retro 3 pack from gamestop how are you storing the Mr Game and watch extra inserts? I know I could just leave it on top of my bookcase in it's casing, but I still don't feel safe knowing my luck with losing stuff... (which now my collection has grown to SMB mario, Dog hunt duo, R.O.B., and G&W Man 8) really need to get that caught up to some extent so many I keep debating getting but need to just bite the bullet...)

Found what amounts to a holy grail here in San Antonio, completely by chance: Yoshi Wooly World with Amiibo bundle and the Splatoon 3-pack!

Splatoon 3 pack leaves me with an extra loose Girl Squidling so if anyone needs her, let me know!
The PSTV is amazing.
