You can also use them on the New 3DS. Most people don't even open these things anyway so it doesn't really matter if they own a Wii U or not.

How are you liking that game?

The gameplay itself is great (responsive, challenging, varied), but the randomness in selecting your level is a real annoyance. Basically, at the end of each level, you hit one of three moving UFOs (bronze = 1 pt., silver = 2 pts., gold = 3 pts.) based on your skill level with Chibi's plug, which gives you a corresponding number of 'wheel spins'. You then are taken to a screen with a large wheel chopped up into various sections numbered 1-3, and whichever you land on is the amount of spaces you will move on the over-world map. The map is set in a circle, so there is the very real possibility of landing on a level you've already played and beaten. The system is a complete bother, and I still haven't figured out the reason for its inclusion in the game.
Otherwise, as I mentioned before, the gameplay is tight and fun. You also learn some interesting facts about different real world candy you find in game and feed to a toy airplane...not sure where they come up with this stuff.

Have these not been released in the US yet? We got them as part of the Wooly World release.

LOL, we didn't get that yet, either. Mine's on pre-order from Best Buy... GCU, son! He'll show up with the game in my mailbox soon.

Amazon.co.jp posted Mewtwo and the Famicom-colored R.O.B., so I put in orders for those. Hoping Falco pops up next week for pre-order.

With Nintendo still pulling all this store exclusive crap (Falco being only at Best Buy, the Mii Fighters only a TRU), spending a few dollars more to save myself the hassle of having to store hunt is fine with me.

You can pre order Falco right now from Best Buy.

I'm not sure if it's rare or what but I've seen the classic Amiibo 3-in-1 bundle at my local EBgames (the one with R.O.B.). They had like 4 of them. Let me know if you guys need them.

Awesome, thanks! Preordered and I was able to snag it for $10 thanks to the BB membership!

Coryoon is the man - that's awesome of you to offer but I think these are pretty common here as well...unless the supply has recently dried up...?

Cross posting this here, as I don't think the thread in Everything Else is getting much traffic and I have way too many dupes:

Not sure if anyone is still hunting Animal Crossing cards, but I'm done buying packs, and got all my SP cards, either by luck or by trade, and 77 out of the 100 total cards.

Tons of dupes, of course. I'm not trying for a full set, and doubt I'll get there, but I'd love to get rid of some of these duplicates. If you have something I don't, and need something I have, let's trade. If you just need a few cards, and I have like three or four of that card, but you don't have anything I'm missing, just hit me anyway.

These new Yoshi Amiibos are kinda cool. I think I'm going to keep this one.

I have no interest in amiibos, but I really like Yoshi. I saw this in mediamarkt yesterday, I might get one.

the Yoshi's are really well done. I got the bundle with the game and green Yoshi, and then I found the blue and pink ones without any issue at Target. Definitely some of my favorites.

My daughter slept with them last night - is that going to hurt the resale value????!!!!!

I saw these at the Best Buy the other day, they do look pretty super cute. Might grab one eventually if I can actually get them at MSRP.

The yoshi amiibos look awesome. Definitely need to grab those. Im really digging how nintendo is finally being smart with restocking amiibos so everyone can get what they need with little to no issues. Now, just waiting for a robin restock.

It seems like GameStop's been swamped with the classic trio pack. I've seen em' a few times. I got in the second time they had preorders for them. I mostly want it for R.O.B to go with my original from 86' and the little gashapon Famicom Robot my friend got me when he went to Japan. Hopefully it'll be that way when Lucas comes out. I still haven't gotten Ness yet...but hopefully I can get Lucas at normal price.
