Here's the full rundown on all the Wave 4 amiibo madness today, including GameStop's plan photo
Here's the full rundown on all the Wave 4 amiibo madness today, including GameStop's plan
by Chris Carter

[Update: I went in-store to scope the situation out and see what I could get at GameStop. I waited two hours as the fourth person in line. The first two got the $77.94 Smash amiibo bundle. The third only got the Splatoon 3-pack, as did I. That took two hours to happen. Robin and Lucina sold out very quickly, which apparently delayed or canceled all of the bundle pack orders that were in the process of going through. Most of the line simply left the store in disgust.

Slow servers have been reported across the country for in-store orders, and I've seen pictures of knocked over displays and confirmation of at least one store ejecting an irate customer. From what I've heard from sources, this is such a mess that GameStop.com pre-orders won't even go up today. We'll provide updates as they occur, but if you really want these things, you may want to keep your eyes open on the site anyway. Based on this Facebook message it isn't looking good.]

Today is going to be the craziest day yet for amiibo. Wave 4 is set to go live, and in addition to an up-in-the-air Jigglypuff Target exclusive, it looks like Greninja pre-orders will appear sometime tomorrow at Toys"R"Us.

Beyond that, pre-orders for Ness (GameStop exclusive), Robin, Charizard, Pac-Man, Lucina, Wario, Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl, and the Splatoon 3-pack will drop today. I spent all morning making calls and contacting sources, and here's what I found.

Ness amiibo confirmed to be a GameStop exclusive

If there's one thing amiibo collectors hate, it's retailer exclusive amiibo. Well, if you fall into that category of people, get ready for some bad news: Ness is exclusive to GameStop. GameStop tweeted out the news following today's Nintendo Direct. Pre-orders open up tomorrow both online and in stores at 2 p.m. Central. Good luck, everyone. You'll surely need it. @GameStop [Twitter]
