Did you pre-order the Rosalina amiibo from Target’s online website this morning? If not, it’s OK. We also missed the opportunity to reserve the Super Mario Galaxy alum.
We did, however, find a Luigi amiibo in Toys R Us. Even better, the store had physical pre-order cards for the TRU exclusive Lucario amiibo and all of Wave 3.
For the record, Wave 3 consists of Bowser, Toon Link, Sheik, King Dedede, Ike, Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. The cards say these figures come out February 1, 2015, but considering Wave 2 was split into two shipments (we keep refreshing r/amiibo – yes, we lurk – for new information), it wouldn’t surprise us to see Wave 3 succumb to a similar fate.
We can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to pre-order Lucario and Wave 3 in a Toys R Us store (a second TRU we visited had no cards), but this is your best chance right now, since reserves are virtually non-existant online. Just head to the video game section and look for the pre-order cards near the register, and make sure to ask if there are none on the counter.
Good luck, and let us know how it goes! That King Dedede looks great.
