o.O

And I thought he's a fan of them until I read the whole thing.

But never mind that, like GayAsianBoy said. Is he going to destroy them as well?
Either way, Nintendo will be getting loads of cash from this guy though.

So he's like a real life grinch?

How mean-spirited! I'd probably be a lot angrier if I didn't find it so ridiculously humorous. It's just so ironic.

Edit: This is actually really easy to fix: Target needs to not be so careless with its pre-ordering policies from now on. One per customer, as I explain below, would do the trick.

Sounds like a tsundere to me.

So this man can't find anything better to do with his time and money? That's quite sad, honestly.

As I think about it he's actually very easy to take down. His entire business model could be crushed simply by limiting the number of pre-ordered units per customer. Target could still rake in pre-orders, Nintendo would still see its Amiibo figures selling in an environment of rabid demand, and consumers would be thrilled to see that the market won't be distorted so strongly by scalpers buying up thousands of dollars of figures (assuming he's actually done so, Destructoid has gotten things wrong before and this guy seems to love the idea of upsetting Nintendo fans).

Opening pre-orders again with a limit of one per customer would cause him to have to either find up to 306 partners in order to do what he has done again (at $12.99 per figure $4,000 would buy 307 figures before tax) or give up. He couldn't buy up all the stock he allegedly did before if he wanted to, that's just too many co-conspirators to reasonably manage.

He must hate his money more than he hates those characters.

That must be some commitment, but man that is awful.

One must wonder about his complaints with Rosalina and others.
