Want to dramatically increase your Amiibo collection? Well you might want to think about paying a visit to Toys R Us online or in store. The US company is having a week-long sale which starts today and enables you to purchase four Amiibo figures for $44. However, you should know that this doesn’t include pre-orders, so it’s only the Amiibo which are currently available.
Thanks, Nick M
If you’re after a batch of Amiibo, Skylanders or Disney Infinity figures then you certainly can’t go wrong with the Toys R Us deal that’s happening at the moment. You’ll be able to save $10 on Amiibo, Disney Infinity or Skylanders if you spend $40 or more. I’m not sure when the deal closes, so it’s best to take advantage of this offer now while there’s plenty of Amiibo in stock.
Those Amiibo figures are extremely hard to come by nowadays so if you’re looking for a Captain Falcon Amiibo you’ll be pleased to know that they’re currently in stock at Toys R Us. The retailer is selling them for the recommended retail price, so there’s no unnecessary mark up. Captain Falcon could be yours for $13.99. Are you going to make the purchase?
Thanks, Jose Mejias
Toys R Us have held true to their promise and have reinstated those cancelled Amiibo pre-orders. My Nintendo News reader Cobb19 recently received the email (which you can read below) in which the company apologizes for the inconvenient glitch that happened on their website and will reinstate all Amiibo pre-orders thanks to a handy code users will need to enter on the website.
As a follow up to the email we sent you a few days ago, we are reaching out regarding your recent amiibo presell order cancellation and to provide you with information on how to repurchase.
As you may already know, amiibo product is in high demand. To make sure that we give you the first opportunity to purchase these items prior to our returning them to our general online inventory for others to buy, we are providing you with links to each item’s product page. For technical reasons, these product pages will show the retail price of the item as being $999.99, but we will provide you with an online only, one-time use code that, when entered, will adjust the price back to the regular retail price. In addition, while we initially offered the amiibo items at $13.99, we’re happy to extend to you a discounted price of $10.99 because of the inconvenience

These items are still considered presell items and will not ship until the manufacturer’s street date.
Toys R Us have thankfully confirmed to Joystiq that the Lucario cancellation emails were part of a technical error that plagued the company’s system. So there you have it. If you pre-ordered Lucario with Toys R Us your pre-order should be absolutely fine.
“We apologize for any inconvenience that may have been caused pertaining to customers’ amiibo pre-orders. Please know that we are working on an email communication to all customers effected, which will provide instructions on how we plan to fulfill their order.”
Thanks to those who sent this in.
A number of you contacted me to say that Toys R Us were cancelling your Amiibo pre-orders and purchases. It was initially presumed that this was due to a technical error that had cancelled a number of Wave 2, 3. and Lucario Amiibo pre-orders. Now it’s being reported that those who managed to contact Toys R Us customer service were actually being told that the company had received notice by Nintendo of a product delay and that Amiibo were being cancelled as a result until they had a clear indication of how much stock they were going to get in. There’s now speculation that Wave 3 may be held back until beyond February to ensure that there’s enough Amiibo figures to go round.
Well, it looks as though the Lucario Amiibo is once again up for pre-order on Toys R Us. The figure has shown up before but it generally gets snapped up rather quickly by eager Nintendo fans. It sounds as though Toys R Us will be getting them in in drips and drabs, but if you want it be sure to pre-order now.
