Enthusiasts of Nintendo’s little collectible toys to life characters have been doing whatever it takes to get a hold of every new figure when they can. Kid Icarus characters Palutena (exclusive to online retailer Amazon) and Dark Pit (exclusive to Best Buy) sold out within minutes nationwide. Given that many more characters are arriving in September, GameStop has taken the initiative to hold a preorder event tomorrow, August 8th, for a special three-pack of characters with a retro theme.
R.O.B., Mr. Game & Watch, and Duck Hunt will be exclusive to the retailer in a three pack, available for purchase for an MSRP of $34.99. The retro three-pack will release on September 25th, which shouldn’t be a surprise given Amiibo releases typically land on a Friday. Stores will have limited quantities and in honor of the special event, they will be opening one hour early at 9:00AM to take preorders with a minimum $5 deposit. Stores are reportedly having better stock than previous GameStop exclusive Amiibo figures, and it is limited to one preorder per customer. Stores are supposedly putting signs up tonight to inform customers of the preorder alottment, but it might help to give your local store a call too as some stores have different information. Good luck to all that manage to snag a preorder tomorrow!
