Probably not much that could be done aside from getting a refund though. Those amiibos are selling out super fast everywhere because people are still afraid of discontinuations. If you don't pre-order them from day one of release, you'll likely miss your chance at them. And there have been rumors of prices potentially getting jacked up because of this for later batches, assuming they release future batches.

Brilliant marketing by Nintendo, I must say. It reminds me of the old Beanie Baby craze.

Indeed, I never thought they would sell this well. But now I can't find them anywhere near my area. My oldest bro has been trying to buy all the new ones that come out as soon as they become available for pre-order. Since he doesn't want to take the chances of the prices being raised later. And there's much regret in not getting the first couple sets either.

They can't just do that. You paid for a specific product and didn't get the correct product you wanted. They have to take it back and either give you the right product in return or give a refund. You should definitely take some sort of action there.

The only thing Toys R Us would do is give me a $15 Toys R Us credit for the amiibo that I can only use on their website. They wouldn't let me send it back because on the packing slip it stated that they sent a Little Mac (the one I preordered) when in fact I received a Samus. They also couldn't send me another Little Mac because they were sold out and were not expecting to get another shipment in. So now I am stuck with an extra Samus and $15 credit that I will probably never use.

 

On the brightside I was able to buy Little Mac on Amazon.

I went to a Target last week in town here and there were loads of Amiibos. I think there was many Yoshis, several Little Macs and a couple of Zeldas. Oh and a bunch of DKs too. They don't seem to be selling out super fast here or anything.

I suppose you could try reselling the extra Samus then. There may still be places selling out on them and you could potentially make a profit off it from people who want it badly enough.

I have pretty good luck finding Amiibos in most stores here, too. I dunno, maybe it's mostly the Americans that're going nuts about this.

Sorry, no room at the inn. You'll have to stay in the crappy manger with the disease-riddled livestock.

My hubby is getting the Link amiibo for Christmas (he just doesn't know it yet)...I'm quite anxious to see the stuff it unlocks when you use it in Hyrule Warriors! The Link amiibo isn't compatible with Mario Kart 8, however. This might actually give us a reason to purchase Super Smash Bros. Wii U.

Same here. The Target here had quite a few Links, Zeldas, Peaches, Yoshis, Pikachus and Kirbies(?). Even a couple Diddy Kongs were available.

Here's a video of Miyamoto talking a little about amiibo characters, as well as some other topics. (I also included this link in the "Zelda Wii U" thread.)

But Link does unlock something in MK8

Problem is you have to compete with the employees at the store along with the call-ins(Who can put things on hold exactly at opening)

Well, that is quite interesting! I came across something that said the Link amiibo was not compatible. Unless it means in terms of the character actually being playable within the game. Then if that was the case, then none of these characters are playable in MK8.
