Presumably, as that was who was shown first before the alternates appeared.

Dammit. The lack of a female Robin stings even more now.

@AmiiboNews on twitter has put up links and has some more info on the exclusives.

P2 Cloud and Twilight Princess Link are Gamestop exclusives (which you can preorder now, but they wanted to charge $5 shipping on each so I'm going to try an in-store preorder later today)

P2 Corrin and Skyward Sword Link are Amazon exclusives (no preorder yet)

Unrelated to the above, I'm kicking myself for not jumping on the Guardian when I had the chance. It is out of stores and is $$$$ where you can find it online. Went to TRU last night for a quick look and got BotW Zelda, which also appears to be in short supply.

Swung by a nearby GameStop over lunch and put in a pre-order for these two. Manager on hand said they had gotten an email this morning saying they were to limit in store pre-orders for the Twilight Princess amiibo to 14. No such note on the P2 Cloud.

Just checked, and it looks like Twilight Princess one is no longer available to order online, so it seems like it may be far more limited.

I'll take a look locally we seemed to have an abundance around here of Guardian.

If there is anybody who manages to get their hands on a Guardian, I will gladly pay purchase and shipping fees.

I would make the same offer, but I have no money. I'd be willing to trade a handmade item or surprise painting if someone wants to risk it.

I had forgotten about Monster Hunter amiibo but they're pretty cheap on Amazon right now.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=i...fix=monster+hu

They may or may not be coming out here with Monster Hunter Stories but I expect they'll be in the $16-20 range if they do.

I still have a few of the latest batch to pick up, but I finally got a new home for all my Amiibos over the weekend:

That is a super great setup. Where did you find Summer Isabelle? She's the only one I'm missing from the AC collection.

I was just able to get one in stores. I don't remember if I had to get my buddies at EB to hold one for me as I ran around, though. They go back and forth on being able to preorder Amiibos, so it's kind of a crapshoot sometimes. Generally I've had good luck with them recently, though, but they also seem to have never gotten any Zelda or Guardian figures yet...

My GS told me that they were just plain sold out. Maybe I'll ask the guy if I can still preorder Summer Isabelle.

Summer Isabelle is available from TRU (at a discount!). Might have some luck there. They also do ship-to-store.

Zelda just popped up on Amazon but was sold out within a couple of minutes

Theoretically it's still available at regular price on Amazon, through third party sellers.

Guardian is showing on Prime, but there's apparently no stock because I can't complete checkout (I can get it in my cart, though). Trying every 30 seconds is destroying my productivity.

AAAAAHHHHH why do you toy with me like this?
