Remember when you desperately asked your friend for 15 bucks to buy the rare Marth amiibo? Oops, that was me. Remember when you got in line at 6:30 a.m. to get the Pac-Man amiibo? Oh wait…. Also me. How about that time when you had one of your best friends skip school while you were taking your SAT to go pick up the last Captain Falcon? No? Just me? Wow… I really lost it back then.
Anyways, Best Buy has restocked the Pac-Man, Marth, Captain Falcon, and Ganondorf Smash amiibo! They’re all available for pre-order now, with Pac-Man listed to release on October 19th, and the others all set for the big Super Smash Bros. Ultimate day: December 7th. These figures cost $12.99, the price amiibo originally sold for back in 2014.
According to a tweet from Best Buy announcing the restock, some of the amiibo are returning as exclusive releases to the retailer, bringing back haunting memories of the amiibo days of yesteryear. (I’m looking at you, Wave 4.) No word yet on which amiibo will end up as retail exclusives this time around, but stay tuned to Amiibo News on Twitter for more details as we get them.
It’s exciting that these figures are readily available this time around, but it also makes me miss the good ol’ days. I miss them so much, in fact, that I’m not pre-ordering any of the Smash Ultimate amiibo. I’m forcing myself to find ‘em the old-fashioned way in brick and mortar stores just like I did last time. Wish me luck.
If you’re not a risky, edge-of-your-seat amiibo hunter like I am, GameStop has Inkling, Ridley, and Wolf available for pre-order in a bundle. You can also grab the re-released Smash Wii U amiibo at Best Buy.
