Finally some good news! Although still no word on Doom Stone's release... and we still have yet to hear ANYTHING about Jade Fire Kraken...

Either way, thanks for posting this chadomac!

In the category of Springtime and Jolly for me. Not into the silly alts. Please do more like Polar Whirlwind and Jade Prism Break. Those are fantastic alts.

I was wondering this as well. Is this an advanced flyer or a current one? Has anyone checked TRU to see if they are out?

I feel like I need more info before I get excited.

Cheapassgamer has the scan, where this is from. The original poster said it was 5/18, so.

Pretty cool though to actually get confirmation of a release. Only a few more and then I'll be all done and I can start saving up for Trap Team lol

Currently the sale is not bogo 50% off so its not this week. It prob is an ad the stores get early or something. I could however see these poping up in some stores prior to the 18th seeing how toysrus lately has been handing items they hold for ads.

that's a bit upsetting on the fact that only toys r us has it first right now if it might even see another place to release it. the fact there's also a sale with it is going to make it a pain to obtain when tru isn't around here.

Taking that last ride through the sunset on skylanders. Hopefully a return of more classic spyro gameplay in the horizon.

Im sure walmart, target etc will get it, just TRU is getting it slightly ahead of the others.

I understand the pain when you don't have a local TRU. But, I prefer it when they get it first despite the higher price (off sale). They are the most consistent and reliable of all the stores when it comes to new Skylanders - and I'd rather not have to keep checking stores. And (at least at mine), the employees are at least aware of what is new and coming out. I'm fortunate enough to have a nearby TRU though.

- Walmart is a crap shoot, you have to go by there over and over, and then have to deal with employees not putting them out (or putting them out in strange places). And very few of the employees have any idea what is current with Skylanders either.
- Target is a little better, but you still have to deal with employee confusion on stock.
- Best Buy is decent, but their stocking is very inconsistent, either feast or famine. Sometimes they do pre-orders though, so maybe they will have one for this.
- Gamestop is decent as well, but I hate shopping there. Their employees sometimes know whats up, but you have to deal with all the cross sell stuff. They also (due to space) don't get in as much quantity.

The others, I'm not sure, we don't really have anywhere else around here that can be depended on for Skylanders.

With the exception of the Enchanted figs, I'm pretty sure 100% of my Skylander Swap Force collection was purchased at TRU.

local preference where there's actually a tru or (insert name store here) everyone's going to have a different opinion but i have to agree that the online offerings of tru for swap force was considerably better than the local offerings at local chains. I did most of my skylander shopping as such with their deals. It's no surprise that for trap team all the stores are finally allowing pre orders of figures so a thing of the past might be in finding exclusive variants because everyone will have them out. Gamestop made it easy to get polar with their pre order of her as well as target tried to get it right with their recent exclusive. In fact, all the local chains one way or another aside from tru haven't been terrible on the fact of having figures on release. Though their older waves tend to sit stagnant on shelves now. I still see wave 1 and 2 figures of swap force and not much else these days at walmart and target

But, I'm with you. We are fortunate enough to have a good TRU with a couple really good employees.

As I obtained Doom Stone today, I optimistically & personally spoke to a TRU employee. Being very knowledgeable of his Skylanders products in his electronics section, he personally confirms the release of Kickoff Countdown on Sunday the 18th...

Yes. I tried to get the TRU drones to sell me one yesterday and they said that KC was register locked for Sunday the 18th. They confirmed that they had at least two boxes in the back (~24 figures) at the store I was at (Scottsdale, AZ). We should be a GO for this Sunday.

Just got a press release for KICK OFF COUNTDOWN, here it is:

SKYLANDERS® CELEBRATES SOCCER FEVER WITH KICKOFF COUNTDOWN

The heroes of Skylanders SWAP Force have enlisted yet another team member in the battle against Kaos, this time with a soccer-themed flair. For the first time in Skylanders® history, Kickoff Countdown will make his way exclusively to Toys"R"Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com on Sunday, May 18, and will be available at retailers worldwide the following week. This newly designed Kickoff Countdown is the only Skylander with the head of a soccer ball that appears both on the toy and in-game, which is sure to help him battle his way through Skylands' most notorious Chompies and Trolls.

Originally, Kickoff Countdown was discovered by a group of Yetis who were snowboarding one particularly chilly morning when they came across a big bomb encased in ice. After bringing it back to their cabin, they were shocked when it actually came to life. No one, not even Countdown himself, has any memory of where he came from or how he ended up frozen in the mountains. Since becoming a Skylander, Master Eon has been graciously trying to help piece together fragments of his past. But this has proven difficult, as Countdown loses some of his memory every time he explodes - which happens a lot!


We know you've already seen this, but here they are again from the press release:

Oh good hah I was wondering if anyone would comment on their hunt today. Got mine today an plopped a dollar down for Trap Team too. Took advantage of the bogo sale and grabbed Doom Stone as well.

All in all not bad. Glad they had a lot of the figures in.
