Rumour: GameStop Having Amiibo Event On August 8th And Will Sell 3 Pack

If you are an amiibo hunter then you may want to pay your local GameStop store a visit on August 8th. Reddit amiibo moderator FlapSnapple is reporting that the popular retailer will be holding a special amiibo event and they will be stocking a special 3-Pack. The 3-Pack will be a exclusive retro themed pack which includes R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Mr. Game & Watch. Each of the stores will have 30 of these available for pre-order. You can read the full details, below.

  • GameStop’s 8/8 event will be amiibo related.
  • GameStop will indeed be getting a 3-Pack!
  • The 3-Pack will be a GameStop exclusive. (Not the individuals)
  • The 3-Pack will be a Retro Pack featuring R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Mr. Game & Watch.
  • Each store will have approximately 30 available for preorder.
  • Preorders will be the traditional “head in store and put $5 down” style and NOT utilize Web In Store.
  • If a location allows more than their allocated preorders, the customer will simply not receive their pre-order. No exceptions.
  • As of now, the 3-pack is the only pre-order officially announced internally for the 8/8 event.
  • As a side effect, GameStop most likely not be reeciving individuals of R.O.B., Duck Hunt, or Mr. Game & Watch.
  • There is a rumor that Pro members will be allowed in to stores an hour early. I am unable to confirm this at this time.

  1. Holy crow, for Mr. Game & Watch you best believe il be there today to ask about the 3 pack and put my monies down son. After that im good on the Amiibo craze.

    1. Mr.Game & Watch doesn’t want your gay hating hands touching him you dipshit. If only you had a proper working brain maybe the THC would actually hit you cannabinoid receptors and make you realize hating gays cause you THINK god wants you too cause you BELIEVE he made the bible when it was actually written by men who stole it from other religions is just plain stupid. Let me guess you listen to kotton mouth kings and other stupid wanna be stoner music.

      1. And not just any men but power hungry men. Let’s be honest. The fact the Romans of ancient times wrote the bible should give most a pause for concern. Sure I believe in God & I believe in the Bible but even I question some of the stuff that’s in it. Like the stuff that says it’s okay to treat your daughter as property if a guy lays with her. :/ I don’t want anything for my daughter, if I had one, if a guy sleeps with her. All I want is that he treats her right & takes care of her. I won’t get any further into this discussion, though, as I believe in a time & a place for certain subjects.

        1. Emblazoned in liquid gold armour, I defend God. Apparently, I’ve angered someone over my personal beliefs. This has been happening for a while now, I know who it is. : )

        2. @ Anonymous- Hahaha! Wow dude! You must love me bro, and hey you known what that’s ok! You just can’t touch me ok? No homo, srry broskie ♥. But seriously its God* dummy. :).

        3. I wouldn’t even hesitate for that 3-pack if it’s happening considering they’re my most wanted right now.

        4. Dammit Nintendo you guys never learn, I’m interested in this so maybe I’ll keep an eye on it, it sucks where i live, for being a small city with 4 game stops and a large amount of people living here, everything goes by real quick.

          1. Game and Watch and Duck Hunt is GameStop exclusive!?


          2. :/ this won’t end well. These things never do. If true, I expect to see countless cancellations as there won’t actually be 30 per every single Gamestop store. Nintendo hasn’t gotten THAT good with the amiibo stock issues! It’d be nice if I’m proven wrong, though.

          3. Why only 30 per store? That’s RETARDED! They’re gonna sell out before most people even knows about it. Like always.

            1. They say 30 per store but what they really mean is 30 per every 10 or 20 stores. Nintendo hasn’t gotten the stock issues with rare amiibo fixed that good yet.

              1. So it’s either go for all three with one stone (Game$top), or possibly suffer through store exclusives again…
                What makes this worse: I was planning on going to see Resurrection f this same morning…drat. I gotta sleep early as if I was going in for work, lol.

              2. Well I talked to one of the guys at one of the two I go to, he didn’t seem to know anything about it. He’s an amiibo hunter like me, so if he didn’t know about it, maybe there isn’t much truth behind this after all.
