Walmart Canada Says They Will Have Gold Mario Amiibo Figures, But Won’t Be Taking Pre-orders

In a series of tweets Walmart Canada has confirmed the existence of the dazzling Gold Mario Amiibo figure. We basically knew it was legitimate as we had photographic proof from a leaked advertisement from the retailer that proved they were genuine. What is strange is they aren’t taking pre-orders. So it could be mayhem at Walmart Canada when these things actually go on sale.

Thanks for asking! We are getting the gold Mario amiibo in stores but we don’t have a date yet.

Hi there. We’re not having a pre-sale for the gold Mario amiibos.

Thanks, Rubberyen and Lord Zedd

Target To Close All Stores In Canada

There’s some bad news for those of you that may have pre-ordered Amiibo in store at Target Canada as the retailer has announced that it is closing all 133 stores in Canada. The move was blamed on poor supply chain management decisions and also a bad pricing strategy. I’m not sure when they’re closing, but you’ve got to feel sorry for all those staff that are facing redundancy.

Thanks, Eric
