Bargain Roundup: Third wave amiibo incoming – the hunt is on

The first wallet reckoning of 2015 is here with the third wave of amiibo launching on Thursday, January 29th here in Australia, well that’s if you can find any.

Normally our bargain roundups would a bunch of links to the stores both physical and online that are stocking said products covered. Not this time however as unless you pre-ordered you’re pretty much screwed on guaranteeing the amiibo you want. EB sold out ages ago, as did JB, other smaller retailers no longer have any listings for the third wave.

But the light at the end of the tunnel is Big W, not only do they say they’ll have the new amiibo figures but at the reduced price of $15. That’s still a whole $1 more than the last wave but we recommend being there early on Thursday if you missed out on the preorder.

We’ll update this story during the week and be sure to check out Twitter and Facebook pages for updates.

Help fellow Nintendo fans out together to defeat the evil scalpers.

Big W

Wave 3 figures from $15, all other figures $15 from 29/1/15 – Link

EB Games

Completely pre-sold out, may have small selection of figures available on the day. (but we doubt it)

Gamesmen

Nope

JB Hi-Fi

If you missed pre-ordering them before you might find some on the day.

Target

All amiibo figures are $17, no word yet on specials or availability.

    With the last Amiibo, my store only had two Diddy Kongs and a Pit spare.

    I know of a bloke that works at Jb who bought out all the amiibos at his work through his brother. Things are getting really rediculous.

    EB Games just put more up on their website, get them while they are still there.

    Old matey at my EB said even he missed out on the pre-order on the Ike amiibo, so he was at Target at 8:00 am for the Usain Bolt down to the video game section to grab him. He said all of their stock went on pre-orders so they had none to display. Crazy stuff.

    I hope everyone managed to secure their amiibo of choice today!

    My local target had about 6 of each amiibo, and I didn’t get there until 11am
