Animal Crossing General: New Horizons in our New Horizon!

Without getting into details I'm not exactly in the best position to get these cards in late March, but if anybody would be willing to buy an extra pack of these and mail them to me I will make it up to you. Even if it's just with Nook Miles tickets and furniture variations.

Assuming I can get them I'd be happy to do this!

My way, soon
A friend went to a modded island and got me a bunch of Mario stuff early. So on the one hand I feel guilty, like I broke street date or something. On the other hand, I got Mario stuff.
 
The official Nintendo Island has added a ton of Mario stuff, it's a very cute layout. Also there's a workout room that's fun and has kettlebells and barbells which I haven't seen before, does anyone here have them (or the recipe)?

Dream Address is 6382-1459-4417.

Sent you a kettlebell and barbell. If I get dupes of the recipes I'll send 'em your way.

Lionel is in boxes today if you're interested in him let me know and I will open the island up!

Bree is also in boxes today if anyone has a free plot and wants a snooty mouse.

Also if anybody would be willing to buy the fake basic painting at my Redd's today and mail it to me the next day I will make it worth your while. (i.e. if there's a pricey item you want a variation of just ask)

It's the very last piece I need for my fake art collection and as luck would have it, it comes in on a day when Redd has a piece of authentic art I don't have yet.

Yeah, I can head over now if you open your gates.
 
I'm very excited by doubling the pro design space we get, and the new things we can design, like the cutout and flags. I just REALLY hope the Sanrio amiibo cards aren't hard to get when they arrive...
 

The way I read it is that you have to do in-store pickup, they aren't going to ship them. Curious what time they'll show up on the site on Friday.

Target's website now has more info:

Available Friday, 3/26 at 8am CT​

Get the exclusive Animal Crossing Sanrio Collection Pack amiibo cards with Order Pickup or Drive Up only. Limit 2 per guest.

I was worried it was going to be 4am PST or something so this isn't bad, that's usually when I'm having breakfast anyway.

I am just livid right now. It's clear they vastly underestimated demand because a bunch of stores around me didn't stock it at all. I guarantee you like 90% of that stock is going to end up with resellers. Even with the limitation of in-store pickup the scalpers around here have armies of gofers.

I tolerate Amiibo, but I wish Nintendo would offer a digital DLC option for this kinda stuff like Ubi's Starlink did. Having desirable content locked behind physical goods (especially when said goods are limited quantity and exclusive to one retailer) is not fun.

What's annoying is, if they had brought them out for HHD they would have been extremely easy to find, like all Animal Crossing amiibo stuff was back then. The AC amiibo were like the only ones they over-estimated demand for. But now that scalpers know you can charge big bucks, even for fake cards, we're basically screwed. I will be shocked if Nintendo decides to do a re-print.

So my choices are to dive back into the black market or just spoof them myself.

I'm kind of holding out hope that when the store reopens some of the orders for my store will get cancelled when people realize we're a 3+ hour drive from Portland.

It's also still showing in stock here but then won't go through which is infuriating.

Edit: I called the store and they had a pre-recorded message to please not bug associates about inventory for anything so I hung up. Might swing by later in case they accidentally put some on the floor since I need something from Target anyway.

Double edit: Finally out of stock on the site. Oh well.

If anyone gets these cards we should set up a mailing chain that ends with the originator.

I like the idea but I'd want to take my time to get through them all rather than kicking six of my current villagers out. Or we just send one around at a time? I'd want their portrait which takes forever. Bah.

It would probably be easier to do a touch party to get everything in the catalog. Assuming that works.

If I got the cards I'd want to be able to use the Sanrio Six for photo ops as I please.

Don't think it works that way with promotional furniture (at least not for ordering stuff yourself, Photopia use should work), though anybody with the cards could order and send furniture to others.

Villagers, though...The Sanrio Six cannot be adopted when they move out.

Saying this as a private individual, opinions and beliefs are entirely my own, etc.:

Just get some stickers and spoof your own. It's not worth the headache, and scalpers are all over this shit already. A coworker's friend saw a scalper standing in front of the Target reselling cards. If they don't want to print enough and drastically undershoot demand, again, don't go along with it.
