Shulk Amiibo (GameStop Exclusive)
ITEM #265067
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/pics/figure/265067.jpg

Pre-orders Sold Out
As usual, this Amiibo exclusive (here in the US) sold out of pre-orders almost immediately at GameStop--a few more opened up on occasion, but was virtually unattainable if you were late to the party.

The release date was scheduled for today, 2/13/2015, though they actually arrived in stores 2/11/2015--confusingly GameStop's website showed these as being in stock all over, but really these were pre-order reservations. Sparsely, a few figures that were not picked up by pre-order customers as of late yesterday were available for purchase.

So you're telling me there's a chance...
Yesterday afternoon/evening, to much surprise (unlike any other Amiibo exclusive), GameStop issued a restock to be released 5/1/2015. The online pre-orders quickly sold out, and for a time after were still available via their mobile site. As of earlier today this was no longer available either.

However, there is still a chance for those slow-pokes (like me) to get your hands on Shulk. You can currently go to GameStop stores and pay up front for a pre-order reservation in-person for the May 1st release--w/ free shipping option to be delivered to your residence (ships directly from their Texas warehouse).

I literally did this at my local store w/in the last hour. According to the GameStop staff, this can be done at any store in the US until the supply is exhausted--the staff are not privy to how many reservations remain, but they don't expect it to be available for much longer based on the history of Amiibo demand. They don't advertise this anywhere that I know of, they only told me after I called to inquire about their inventory. So if you want Shulk...stop reading this and call/visit your local GameStop to reserve him ASAP.

gumonshoe5 år siden#2698028this is just for Shulk. i wouldn't rely on a backorder of any Amiibo not officially known to have a restock. let the backorder sit, just in case, but meantime i would try to arrive early on Ike's release date (2/20) to a local shop such as Best Buy--call ahead to inquire if they will be available. I read that Target will not be carrying him in stores.

Thank you very much^^ I will try what I can. I didn't PO him immediately after he went up on GS for this to happen, yet it did and I am screwed :( I will do as you suggested and try other stores as well including online ones. It's unfortunate Nintendo isn't doing anything about this to secure more stock for everyone.

Sekhmet5 år siden#2694242Does anyone know if this will work for Ike or if there is any news on him? GS has my order of him on back-order. Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your article that will be helpful to others, I'm just seriously bummed about my Ike amiibo.

i'm not sure what they see on their end--if they are on an intranet, but there were 2 pages like you say on the 2/13 release date on their public website. but by the end of the day there was only one page (for the 5/1).

mnthunder5 år siden#2695859In case any one gets a gamestop employee tell them the the pre sale for Shulk that is supposed to be released on 5/1 is already sold out. Ask them if they are using the right page for the order. There are two different pages for Shulk. The one that just released and the pre sale page for the 5/1 release.
I had the employee from gamestop tell me that they were sold out when I tried to order mine. Which really sucked since the guy ahead of me just bought 2 for himself. So I hustled over to the next nearest gamestop to see if somehow I could bet the system. The employee at this store had the same problem, but he then figured out that he was using the wrong page. With a huge sigh of relief I got my Shulk ordered.
So if any of you run into this problem just ask if they are using the right page.

I want the Shulk amiibo (and Lucina and Robin) but not enough to stalk for pre-orders and deal with scalpers.

I only want them for their content they bring to games anyways since the quality of the figures isn't anything to write home about...and I'm not going to give them the excuse that they're inexpensive because prize figures around the same price usually look better. Maybe I should just hold out until Nintendo releases the card versions of amiibos.

I can confirm that this works!

My parents pre-ordered Shulk for my brother with my Rewards card and he'll be shipped around May! My order confirmation says that the estimated delivery will be between Monday May 11th through Monday May 18th. :3

The re-stock may be because of the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D in April, so I guess this will happen outside US as well.
