I got the 2DS for 3 year old because I thought she may of broke the hinges on folding one, its a good solid system but I think the XL may be better suited for adults!

So as a final update. The XL size was a good fit for me. But if you are normally XL sized I would say that even the XL size would be too small. Was smaller and tighter than any XL sized jumper I have tried.

What is bizarre about asking questions? HUKD have no affiliation with Nintendo to my knowledge. What do you mean by excess demand... do you mean the -1 degree heat on this "deal"? And yes Nintendo are clearly withholding stock or being very canny about mass redistribution.


Can you please explain how econ 101 applies to this situation and how Nintendo are still selling amiibo manufactured more than 3 years ago when they have supposedly been out of stock numerous times over the years?

At this stage HUKD is simply pandering to the false scarcity Nintendo is creating by holding onto stock and releasing in stages. It's blatant market manipulation and it's hardly a deal when I know for a fact Nintendo have more of this in a warehouse somewhere. They would not be doing so well in selling all this stuff if people were not scared into "missing out".

Nintendo's FOMO (fear of missing out) marketing works. If I get a limited edition I want great, if I miss one I dont try and chase it and pay over RRP I just forget about it. Its too much hard work being a nintendo collector. But posts like these have helped me get some, and I dont think they should be stopped

Latest commentsPost comment

You're totally missing the point and being rude about it.

The point is your statement:

"Sure they will be out of stock/hard to find for 6months or 1year but after that you will find them everywhere at £7-8 or lower with DEALS. NEVER seen a single amiibo that doesn't follow these rules."

Is totally wrong.

Then you're describing waiting for years, and using price alerts all over Europe.
A totally different approach to what your statement suggests.

Some people don't want to do that, aren't prepared to wait that long, or to put in that much effort to save a few pounds.

I don't want to wait 2 years for a zelda amiibo.

You will not see the zelda amiibo's "everywhere" at "£7-8 or lower".

It's just plain bad advice.

Nobody's talking about making money, buying at inflated prices, being fanboys or anything.

I paid normal price for all my zelda amiibos except for Sheik which I got for £5.

Still trying to get Majoras mask and skyward sword link.

I've glad I got my OOT link for £10.99 plus delivery the other day.
I'd rather not pay for delivery, and would like to pay less, but I don't expect I'll see it much cheaper for a long time unless I'm lucky or put in a lot of effort.

You're just plain wrong and talking about stuff we're not talking about, and taking an approach many aren't willing to take.
By the same argument someone can say your approach is wrong - that time is money - and waiting so long for something you want is stupid.
I'm not making that counter argument. I'm just stating that your clearly incorrect statement about easily getting zelda amiibos everywhere at nearly half price is wrong.

I'll leave it at that. Take your hate elsewhere, I wasn't advocating paying what I also consider ridiculous prices for plastic models. I personally found paying around £10 hard to justify, but I really like Zelda, and even excluding amiibo functionality they do make nice collectables - they look good.

I don't collect other amiibo. I have no interest in having a mountain of plastic figures.

History of amiibos show that their price, for ALL OF THEM, dropped after a period of time: 6months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, they all have been far from their release price at some point (available for days, months or more but you don't care, you have price alert email/sms, right ?), sometimes it takes a lot of time so don't talk about 30th anniversary amiibos that only have 1 year. Yeah they are super easy to find since Nintendo did retock in diff. countries, maybe not in UK but in Portugal they are back in most shop at 12.90€. Same for BotW amiibos. if they are still at their release price after 1 year means they will still be in the futur ? No, again, history showed us the opposite, you wait, you get price drop.

Your 30th anniversary amiibos give BotW bonus, there are 3M RETAIL copies of BotW sold worldwide, why would Nintendo miss so many customers ? Always the same shit with them: sell amiibos little by little to force weak people to buy them at full price at release making them thinking it's super rare............. So many people don't care about amiibos, they buy it at release because they think it will be hard to find them later. Look at Gumba / Koopa amiibos, they don't sell because Nintendo announced high stocks, if it was a "low stock" announce they would sell instant LOL.

Nintendo is no god, if there is demand they will make reprint and quantity will ALWAYS be superior to demand at some point so price will drop. Sure they can make small reprint but if it's not enough they will do it again, and again, until it's saturated. They want money, no point keeping customer on the side of the road, especially for these "made in china" amiibos that are super easy to produce with high marging. Don't forget they have shareholders behind their ass and after WiiU failure they need cash, a lot.

Why ALL other amiibos followed that rule and not the latest one ? Old amiibos were limited to WiiU/3DS, new one are now made for Switch too. Nintendo is here to make money, no point with a lot of new customers to do limited run aka price don't increase with years since they keep doing reprint.

This is the big problem with Nintendo "fanboys", they can't wait, they all trust what Nintendo says aka "our amiibos will be super hard to find, buy them now at full price". How many times Nintendo said "this one will be limited" and years later we find it at low price ? Nintendo loves to sell amiibos little by little to force weak people to buy them asap, making them thinking they got something rare (LOL). Applies to game collectors too. Again, Little Mac, 60€+ at release, <3€ in 2017, Shulk, Link Cartoon, SSB Link, even those stupid Lucas amiibos were super expensive at release and are now cheap AF.

Why do you think there are so many resellers ? Because of you guys who can't wait. When i see collectors website or your kind of comment i understand why so many people buy a lot of collectors / amiibos to sell them at 2-10x their original price at release, it's easy money, people they sell to are so stupid, just abuse them.
Samus Return Collector: 80-100€ that other companies sell for 60€, Nintendo fanboys buy everything at any price and have 0 patience, again, i understand why reseller do that. People are stupid, abuse them and make easy money.

And NO you don't make money with Zelda / Mario / Nintendo stuff in the long run, collector or not (unless its a Limited Run with few thousands pieces worldwide with a specific number on each box).

In the old days, yes, why ? Because people were gamers, buying stuff FOR THEM, not to resell, finding an old N64/NES/etc... with its blister is "hard". Now SO MANY people massively buy Nintendo stuff, keep them inside their box / blister thinking that in the future (20 years LOL) they will make super high profit. It won't since so many people do that. The only time you really make money with Nintendo stuff is at release.

Look at collectors/amiibo websites, these mongoloids all buy 2x of each product: "one to open, one to expose/resell". Their shit will take so few value with years, everybody do that, availability>demand in the end.

Keep buying at £11+ thinking you got a super rare "Made in China" amiibo, i just set my price alert everywhere and will slowly grab ALL the amiibos / collectors i want at half price.

it's always the same with amiibos: never buy them at release. Sure they …it's always the same with amiibos: never buy them at release. Sure they will be out of stock/hard to find for 6months or 1year but after that you will find them everywhere at £7-8 or lower with DEALS. NEVER seen a single amiibo that doesn't follow these rules.


Total bs

So you've just reinforced my point, and none of the 30th anniversary have dropped in price significantly as far as I can tell.
Saying smash linked dropped for days - well yes, days, in years since its release.

I already had that one.

Zelda stuff holds its value very well, demand is always there.

So basically this statement is totally wrong:

You won't see 30th anniversary zelda amiibo (certainly the link one) "everywhere" for £7-8 or lower.

Bad advice.

Yeah, that rule doesn't apply to any of the Zelda amiibos from what I've …Yeah, that rule doesn't apply to any of the Zelda amiibos from what I've seen - not even Smash link.Let alone the very hard to find 30th anniversary ones - like the 30th anniversary OOT link I managed to get yesterday thanks to a post on here.The only one I managed to get at a discount was Sheik - for £5 from smyths.Actually to be fair I've seen ganandorf go for £5, and smash link was perhaps reduced at one point - but those are more short opportunities when certain retailers clear old stock, not the norm.Expect to pay at least the standard price.


Then you are using wrong tools.

Link Cartoon was reprint last month and sold by Play-Asia at 11€.
Smash Link was available at Amazon for 7.45€ 6 months ago FOR DAYS.
30th anniversary amiibos will be reprint very soon according to Nintendo.cz, they were also easy to find at release and still are. They are only 1 y/o amiibos, wait and price will drop like all others (BotW amiibos price starting to drop, 12.90€ each). Theres no hurry to buy them, right ?

It's always the same thing. Use price alert add-ons on many websites and you will get them WITH TIME at low price.
Latest one i bought was Shulk on Amazon, 6.50€, delivered. Was "hard" to find or completely out of stock on MY Amazon for almost 2 YEARS. Many amiibos dropped <5€ (not talking about animal crossing one) and most of them were supposed to be "limited run" / "hard to find" at release. Like Little Mac, bought it on Amazon.it at 2.72€, was 60€+ when released xD

Amiibos are easy to produce, Nintendo just want people to think they will be hard to find by leaking fake numbers on Twitter to force full price pre-orders.
