Target to close all 133 stores in Canada, where the Rosalina amiibo is exclusive

Things haven't been looking good for Nintendo and its retailer-exclusive amiibo initiative. Toys"R"Us has bungled pre-orders so many times it's hard to tell if anyone will actually get their  Lucario amiibo at this point...

Here are all the amiibo waves and figures we know about

[Update: the list has been updated to include Wave 4. In regards to Marth, see this bit of news.] The amiibo figures out today, and in some locations, they're selling out. While Villager and Wii Fit Trainer seem to be two of...

My desk craves this game-inspired Predator 2 figure

I'm still kicking myself for missing NECA's glow-in-the-dark Jason Voorhees figure based on his loud design in Friday the 13th for the NES. It was exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, and I should've had a friend nab one for me....

This custom bad box art Mega Man figure looks like Patrick Warburton

Bad box art Mega Man is a legend. In addition to being featured in Street Fighter X Tekken among other accomplishments, my mom picked the original Mega Man out for me because of the cover art, and the rest is histor...

These Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks were 'designed with adult collectors in mind'

Brett told us about the Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks only to totally leave us hanging now that the toys are viewable online. Never did trust that guy. Makedonski? Obviously a phony last name. Anyway, yes, Ubisoft has posted im...

Trick your loved ones into thinking these Japanese McDonald's toys are amiibo

Amiibo sure are all the rage, huh? Who would've thought that Nintendo's artificially scarce plastic figurines would create such a crazed demand? Were you lucky enough to get one that looks just like Steven's dog? If so, you'l...

Here's a cool amiibo infographic that displays all known compatibility

The amiibo craze is real, but some people aren't super keen on the collectible aspect and choose to focus on the in-game functionality. That's cool, but it can get a bit confusing as to what games are actually supported....

Toys
Toys"R"Us apparently canceling select Lucario amiibo orders...again
by Chris Carter

Back in December, Toys"R"Us canceled every Lucario amiibo pre-order (and some random Wave 2 or 3 orders). It sucked, because the figure is exclusive and they already took thousands of orders on them weeks before the cancellation. They seemingly made it right though as many orders were either re-instated a few days later, or customers were given a coupon to get a discount off the "$999.99" placeholder to avoid scalpers picking up the rest of the stock.

But according to multiple users the system seems to be having issues yet again, and some orders that were re-instated have been canceled for a second time. I was first informed of the problem by a reader on Twitter, who explained the situation. I asked if anyone else had the same issue, and three others chimed in via messages or DMs to inform me that their order was also gone. At the time of this writing, my order is fine, but I wanted to know more.

Investigating further, I checked into a few communities and it looks like it's not an isolated problem. I've contacted Toys"R"Us, but in the meantime if you are affected, contact customer service and find out what the deal is -- with their first cancellation debacle you could ask for a $25 giftcode. I'd also recommend jettisoning all of your Wave 3 pre-orders from Toys"R"Us to another company if possible.

Heads up amiibo collectors: Fox and Samus may be gone soon

Marth, Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer amiibo are rare at this point -- it's just a fact. Although Nintendo noted that the "core" figures will always be available (citing Mario as a staple), some of them will phase out. Accordi...

TruForce Collectibles gives us a little taste of their Mega Man X figure

Thanks to fan demand, TruForce Collectibles is crafting a new Mega Man X figure. Before this week we haven't had the slightest clue of what it looked like, but thanks to a recent Facebook posting we now have a better idea. So...

This new Yoshi Figuarts toy is dawwwsome

I have a general rule when it comes to getting merchandise for games. If it's a series I really love and have a collection for, I'll get a moderate amount of goods for it. Mario happens to be one of those series, and man...

This homemade Mega Man X Iris figure is awesome

Although we've seen a great deal of figures from the Mega Man universe, Iris has never gotten the recognition that many fans have been wanting. Madhands has taken things into its own...well...hands by crafting a figure o...

That lil Bulbasaur! Pokémon Center has the adorable Red Nendoroid

Toys
Toys"R"Us canceling Lucario amiibo orders
by Chris Carter

[Update: Toys"R"Us put pre-orders back up momentarily this morning, and I expect them to either be faulty or drop very soon. Try to re-pre-order if you want at your own risk!]

[Update 2: Now the retailer has taken off the listing entirely -- there's not even a "sold out" page. What a circus.]

The day the Lucario amiibo went on sale, I pre-ordered it. As in, weeks ago. Now Toys"R"Us is canceling orders, including mine. For reference, Lucario is exclusive to Toys"R"Us and you can't get it anywhere else. Huh?

I'm not alone it seems, as our own Brittany Vincent and Bill Platt have had their orders canceled too, as well as a number of readers out there who reached out last night. We are following up with both Nintendo and Toys"R"Us to see what the deal is. It's entirely possible that the latter wants people running into the store at the release date and buying add-on items. That's retail for you.

Between this, the holy trinity, and Rosalina pre-orders selling out in 30 minutes in the dead of night, this has become a total shitshow by Nintendo and the retailers involved, which chose to do exclusive amiibo in the first place. Why is it that Activision and Disney were able to sell millions of dollars worth of Skylanders and Disney Infinity toys near launch without a hitch?
