Update: This rumor was, in fact, incorrect.
According to a rumor spreading across the amiibo subreddit, the entire wave 4 of amiibo figurines will be up for pre-order at 3pm Eastern Time. This, of course, exempts the retailer exclusive amiibo: Jigglypuff, Ness, and Greninja.
Last week, pre-orders for wave 4 went up at both Bestbuy and Gamestop. At Gamestop, the pre-order rush took the entire Gamestop website and checkout system down. At Bestbuy, all the pre-orders sold out within minutes. The retailer exclusive amiibo, Greninja and Jigglypuff, both sold out within minutes at Toys R’ Us and Target, respectively.
We will let you know if this rumor actually comes into fruition.
