Rumor: Low wave 4 amiibo shipments at GameStop, no more holds, Shulk restock in June
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Rumors | 7 Comments | 0 Likes
A rumored internal memo from GameStop provides an update on the situation surrounding amiibo.
Like every major retailer, GameStop will begin selling wave 4 Smash Bros. amiibo on Friday. But sadly, the stock situation here doesn’t sound too encouraging… aside from silver Mario.
Here’s what was shared by Reddit user “gamestopinfo5678”:
Our shipments of wave 4 SUCK. plain and simple. from 0 robins/lucina to just one of each. 1,2, or no nesses. Surprisingly we’ll have plenty of silver mario’s for whatever that’s worth. Memo stated that we will not be re-supplying wave 4. Once we run out, we are out. you can camp gamestop if you want, but as a collector myself…I’m not. I can spend my time better at another store with much better stock. (this doesn’t mean there won’t be the abnormal store here and there that might have decent stock)
The one bright spot? We’re hearing that GameStop will post in hand stock on the morning of May 29 on the door. That means you’ll be able to see stock totals while waiting in line.

Amazon’s description notes, “The Vampire Lord is a dark yet noble monster. Rumor has it that its bite has the power to turn others into vampires.”

Marth amiibo restocks appear to be extremely limited
Posted on 1 year ago by Kirara Koneko(@KiraraKoneko) in New Nintendo 3DS, News, Wii U | 4 Comments | 0 Likes
We have been seeing Marth amiibo restocks trickling in so far this May. Amazon has momentarily had some available, so quick in fact there wasn’t even time to get the news out. Now GameStop seems to be plagued with the same issue. Reports are currently indicating that although select GameStop’s are seeing Marth amiibo’s restocked, they are only receiving one or two per location. At this time the best course of action would probably be to call or stop in to your local shop and see if they have any available. Currently there is no confirmation of whether Marth will be made available on their website but stay tuned for more details.
