Palutena & Dark Pit amiibo Become Retailer Exclusives

Who’s ready for another retailer exclusive amiibo? Who? You are! Of course you are! Who doesn’t love THOSE?

All right, so… everyone. Everyone doesn’t love those (we assume), but it’s happening again regardless. Not that you expected anything less.

Here’s the scoop on these two upcoming retailer exclusive amiibo. The first is Dark Pit, which will be available at Best Buy. Remember that Best Buy has the habit of putting pre-order pages up whenever they bloody well feel like it, leaving collectors in a perpetual state of anxiety as they rely on luck to snatch up one of the figures. To put this into perspective, the figure is supposed to be released on July 31st and the pre-orders haven’t opened yet. Yes, that’s right.

The good news, however, is that Palutena will be available on Amazon. The online retailer has made things easier for collectors in that clicking on the “email me” button will allow you to discover immediately when the page goes live for the figure’s release on July 24th.

And you’ll need that, because an Amazon staffer posting over on Reddit has let folks in on how this will go down:

“Okay, cat’s out of the bag, Palutena’s going to be an exclusive to Amazon. She comes out July 24th, and we’re not doing pre-orders, so orders will go live at some point that day. If you want info on when they’ll go live, sign up to be emailed on the product page (Although just like wave 4, I’ll cross-post everything to reddit).

 

A few things to keep in mind, that we learned before wave 4:

1) We want to avoid resellers as much as possible, so she’ll be limited to 1 per customer.
2) We’re going to let everyone know when she’ll go on sale ahead of time.
3) That time will be during “normal business hours” (No 2:30am releases).
4) We learned from wave 4 that the time “windows” aren’t much different from just announcing a time, so I think that’s what we’ll be doing.

 

Also, we have a lot more stock than we’ve had of any other amiibo yet. I know we’ll end up selling out, but I think it’ll be closer to the Splatoon 3-pack or Charizard or something rather than Lucina/Robin in terms of how long they’re available (~15 mins after available). If you show up on time, you should be able to get one.

 

…Our team is looking into the email me button not working. Rest assured that the same info will be available on Twitter and here, I’m going to make sure the details are as easy to find as possible.”

 

So if you’re on the ball, you might actually have a chance with Palutena! You’re on your own for Dark Pit, though.
