An internal document from Toys “R” Us reveals additional details about upcoming in-store pre-orders for the Greninja and Pac-Man amiibo.

Customers will be limited to reserving one of each figure. Moreover, there will be 10-20 units of the Greninja and Pac-Man amiibo per store.

You can find additional information about how stores will be handling the pre-orders above. Reservations will take place on April 27.


Toys “R” Us is holding in-store pre-orders for wave 4 amiibo on April 27. However, you should keep in mind that reservations are limited to just two figures. Consumers will only be able to pre-order Greninja and Pac-Man figures. That’s it!


Update: That was quick! Toys “R” Us has already confirmed this in a statement.


An official Facebook comment published by Toys “R” Us suggests that in-store pre-orders for the Greninja amiibo will be held on April 27. Quantities are expected to be limited.

Toys “R” Us opened online pre-orders for the Greninja amiibo in the early hours this morning. In just a few minutes, they sold out.


It’s official: the Greninja amiibo will be a Toys “R” Us exclusive in North America. This has been confirmed via an official statement from the retailer (see above). Pre-orders for Greninja will open tomorrow.


Everything we’ve been hearing about the Greninja amiibo thus far has indicated that the figure will be exclusive to Toys “R” Us. That would certainly make sense given that Lucario was also exclusive to the retailer. When we receive an official confirmation, we’ll be sure to let you know.


Toys “R” Us is in talks to sell custom amiibo from creator “Evilos”. While the two sides are in the negotiating phases, everything is proceeding as planned and the fan-made figures will be sold online at some point. Pricing and other details are up in the air at the moment, but we’ll let you know more as soon as we receive more information.


Toys “R” Us is holding a sale on amiibo, Disney Infinity, and Skylanders figures. If you buy one figure, you can pick up another for 40 percent off. This offer lasts throughout the week and applies to all in-stock products. You can check out the sale right here.

Toys “R” Us has a small offer available for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. By pre-ordering the game, you’ll receive a Kirby amiibo.

As far as we’re aware, this offer is in-store only. We’ll let you know if we hear otherwise.


Toys “R” Us started sending out emails yesterday about amiibo pre-orders that were accidentally cancelled due to an internal error. You likely received one of two messages. The first one states that your order (or orders) was automatically reinstated. We’re also now aware of a second that informs consumers that their pre-order couldn’t be reinstated, but the items can be re-ordered.

So what’s the difference? Toys “R” Us has explained that those who paid with PayPal or gift cards couldn’t have their orders return automatically. Still, the retailer will soon send out instructions about how they can reorder their item.

The difference is in fact due to the form of payment. If paid through PayPal or gift card it is not possible to automatically reinstate an order. However, as mentioned, all customers will receive communication with instructions on if they need to and how to reorder their item.


Late last week, Toys “R” Us cancelled a slew of amiibo pre-orders. We later learned that the issues came about due to an error within the retailer’s system, and the company was working on bringing back reservations.

Emails going out today confirm that Toys “R” Us is working on reinstating pre-orders. Keep track of future updates from the retailer. Here’s hoping any figures pre-ordered that were wrongly cancelled will be successfully restored.
