Wave 4 amiibo of the Super Smash Bros collection include Charizard, Pac-Man, Wario, Greninja, Robin, Lucina, Ness, and Jigglypuff. Jigglypuff is a Target exclusive, Ness; GameStop and Greninja; Toys R Us. Yesterday Jigglypuff, Ness and Greninja all went on sale yesterday. Jigglypuff went up for preorders at around noon EST yesterday, Ness at 3pm, and Greninja actually around 3am.
Jigglypuff must have been sold out in less than 5 minutes. I was not able to get a single one.
Ness at Gamestop was a tricky one because the store announced on their Twitter feed that they will begin taking preorders at 2pm CT, or 3pm EST here.

The awfully funny thing is that while folks started waiting in store at 2pm, the website actually went down at 3pm.
UPDATE (6:48pm): At this time, all Wave 4 amiibo pre-orders are sold out.
Due to very strong demand for the newest wave of Nintendo’s amiibo figures, GameStop is experiencing some technical issues with our website.
At this time, we are accepting pre-orders of amiibo in stores only while we resolve these issues.
We are working aggressively to resolve the technical issues as quickly as possible and expect it to be back online shortly.
Greninja preorders went live at around 3am and sold out in about an hour. There hasn’t been word on whether or not Toys R Us will be taking in store preorders.
With preorders for these store exclusive amiibo sold out, the only other viable option is to buy it on May 29, when it releases at Target, GameStop and Toys R Us retailers.
The next wave for Super Smash Bros amiibo include Dark Pit and Palutena in July, and Zero Suit Samus, Ganondorf, Olimar, Dr. Mario and Bowser Jr. in September. Outside of the Super Smash Bros amiibo line, a trio of Slpatoon figures are expected to release on May 29. Yoshi’s Woolly World are expected to have yarn Yoshis in different colors. Finally Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer are expected to have amiibo cards, which might help address the amiibo shortage.
