The folks over at Reddit have secured additional details about GameStop’s amiibo pre-order event taking place on Saturday. If you missed out on the news previously, this will be your chance to reserve a 3-pack containing R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Mr. Game & Watch.

First, here are some general details:

  • Pro membership is required once again for the 1-hour early event.
  • You can buy membership Saturday morning.
  • There is no restriction based on when you became a Pro member.
  • The price for the 3-pack is officially confirmed at $34.99. It is currently $99.99 in the POS but will be adjusted prior to the event.
  • Minimum deposit is confirmed for $5, nothing more.
  • On Thursday, stores will receive their store-specific allocation numbers.
  • Stores will be displaying their allocation numbers on signs at their entrances. (Sound familiar?)
  • Generally speaking, stocks will be put up the night before, when the last employee leaves for the night.
  • 1 Retro 3-pack per customer.

Some other interesting tidbits:

  • There are a total of 6 SKUs up for reserve on Saturday, including the 3-pack. (So 3-Pack + 5 Individuals)
  • These additional SKUs may be Gannondorf, Zero Suit Samus, Olimar, Dr. Mario, and 30th Anniversary 8-Bit Classic Mario.

We also have the following information about returning your Pro membership:

  • If somebody is planning on getting PUR Pro simply to pre-order and then return it, they are entitled to the return.
  • The web site does list the 7 day return period, even though it does not list reasons required for a return. (This is why your mileage may vary)
  • The employees are definitely going to say anything they can for you to keep it.
  • In the end, it will most likely require the current manager on duty.
  • While the majority of employees do not know how to properly return memberships, somebody will figure it out.
  • Returning Pro membership brings you back down to a regular member, it does not remove you from the PowerUp Rewards program entirely.
  • If you do decide to try and return your membership, please wait until later on in the day or the following day as to not hold up the line for your fellow amiigos.


Last week, rumors surfaced about GameStop potentially holding an amiibo pre-order event on August 8. This has now been confirmed.

Those who stop by GameStop on Saturday will have the opportunity to reserve a new 3-pack. R.O.B., Mr. Game & Watch, and Duck Hunt are being included in the bundle.

GameStop will be opening its doors at 9 AM. Consumers will need to put down a $5 minimum, and there’s a limit in place of one per customer.


GameStop has opened pre-orders for the 3DS NFC reader. If you’re interested, the accessory can be reserved here.

Nintendo will be bringing out the 3DS NFC reader on September 25. Pricing is set at $19.99.

The R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Game & Watch amiibo could be seeing their first pre-orders as early as next week. Speculation has surfaced about an event GameStop will be hosting on August 8, and an exclusive three pack containing the three figures will supposedly be offered.

Here’s the lowdown:

– Special GameStop amiibo event
– Stores are being allocated extra hours in the early morning
– The 3-pack will be a GameStop exclusive (not the individuals)
– The 3-pack will be a Retro Pack featuring R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Mr. Game & Watch
– Each store will have roughly 30 available for pre-order
– Pre-orders will be the traditional “head in store and put $5 down” style rather than Web In Store
– If a location allows more than their allocated pre-orders, the customer will not receive their pre-order
– As of now, the 3-pack is the only pre-order officially announced internally for the 8/8 event
– As a side effect, GameStop most likely not be receiving individuals of R.O.B., Duck Hunt, or Mr. Game & Watch
– Pro members may be allowed in to stores an hour early

All of this information is unconfirmed for the time being. If we hear anything official, we’ll be sure to bring the news to you.
