Best Buy

Rumors have been circulating about a restock of the Meta Knight amiibo at Best Buy, and Nintendo confirmed last week that the character would be restocked along with other figures “over the next few days”. Now we may know when that will be taking place.

Best Buy is rumored to be obtaining new Meta Knight amiibo shipments on May 20. However, it won’t be until May 29 until new units begins to appear in stores.

May 29 is certainly turning out to be a big day for amiibo given the release of new Smash Bros. and Splatoon figures. Let’s not forget about silver Mario as well!


A few mysterious listings have appeared in Best Buy’s system. The retailer now has “Dummy SKUs” entries for various platforms, including Wii U and 3DS. These all are E3-related, so I assume pre-orders for these unknown games will kick off during the event next month.


Update: Now going for the same price on Amazon.

Best Buy has discounted the price of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The game has been typically going for $40, but the retailer has it for only $30. This price is valid both online and in-store.

It’s looking very likely that Best Buy is planning a restock of the Meta Knight amiibo. Over 5,300 units of the figure have been listed for one of the retailer’s distribution center, which should mean that additional stock will be making its way to stores sometime in the future. We’ll keep you updated on the situation as it develops.


Reddit user “Frostwynd”, who has a proven track record when it comes to amiibo information, has given some insight into what we can expect for availability of upcoming figures at Best Buy. The new Smash Bros. and Splatoon amiibo could ship in limited supplies to the retailer.

In one state, the projected stock numbers for the latest amiibo were as follows:

Lucina – 2
Robin – 2
Wario – 3
Pac-Man – 6
Charizard – 6
Splatoon 3-pack – 5
Inkling Girl – 3
Inkling Boy – 3

These numbers were pretty much the same across the board, with very little variance. They’re also not expected to change at all before release date. Assuming they’re completely accurate, it might be tough to find Lucina and Robin when the new amiibo figures launch later this month.
