Based on the release of it already in other places, January seems likely to me. There's only going to be two more major "pushes" or waves now, the rest are onesy twosey type things. Two waves of ~6 characters, rest are holiday or store variants.

If we're lucky, hopefully only one wave but I doubt it
If I haven't mentioned already, here's what's left-
Trap Masters: Enigma, Thunderbolt, Short Cut & Gear Shift (general release)
Cores: Echo, Flip Wreck, Rocky Roll, Fling Kong, Blackout & Spotlight
Minis: Pet Vac/ Breeze & Barkley/Whisper Elf

You essentially have two more triple packs just with the cores, as well as the last of the TMs and Minis
This should be Wave 4
Wave 5 should be store & holiday variants

Wave 3 for most countries. In the US they're being held back due to a deal with Frito Lay. We'll probably see them sometime in January though, maybe early February at the latest.

I had posted earlier in the Trap Team section and now realize there is a thread in the toys section too. I was at Target earlier today and they had Nitro Head Rush on the shelf. She was register locked until 2/15 so unfortunately they wouldn't sell her to me.

Anyone know the DPCI for this one. I've found you can get it on Sundays of release week easier with that or wait for Tuesday when it seems all the new items come out in electronics (books, music, movies, etc).

The DPCI for Target for NHR is 207-00-3012.

Off-topic: "Easter Special Edition Weeruptor and Earth Trap for Skylanders Trap Team - TGT Exclusive" is 207-00-3014.

Target in Newington CT had 4-5 on the hooks when I went in looking for LPPF, NHR came up with no pricing info, the nice helpful (not dimwitted) clerk just punched it in manually for me, after having gone in the back and getting the case of LPPF's so I could purchase one.

Just out of curiosity, I checked EBay and people are selling this for $30 shipped. Has the scalper world become so desperate as to grab these up to make $5-7 after figuring in that they paid sales tax, EBay fees, and shipping costs (not to mention time getting a box, packing it up, & mailing it out)?
PurpleSnurple Yellow Sparx Gems: 1264
#23 Posted: 18:12:04 05/02/2015
You're assuming that the seller paid retail and has high fees. Top rated sellers get massive discounts from eBay both in shipping and fees. Plus, a lot of people bought up the Target gift cards back when they were on super sale and have tons of money to use at Target, combined with the 5% redcard, and coupons... they can get these figures dirt cheap and thus their margins are much higher.

By dirt cheap, you mean maybe they paid like $12-13 if lucky...I am aware of 5% red card and discount gift cards, but that doesn't exactly add up to more than 15-20% total savings. If you use a gift card, you can't use the red card discount unless you calculate exactly as to have a balance after the use of the gift card. Anyway, it sounds like a lot of legwork for a figure which won't exactly be all that popular once released. I have a feeling the Nitro series has lost it's flair as has the Legendary series of figures...supply has far exceeded demand in the US.

It hardly seems worth the effort. Maybe the scalpers are getting them for free or really reduced prices (< $5) making the return better.

#26 Posted: 05:30:17 06/02/2015
I just so happened to stop by another Target tonight and the shelf was full of them..again. I made another attempt at buying her but no luck. It's okay though, I did pick up Bowser and Toon Link Amiibos so it wasn't a total loss. I took some pics for anyone interested.

She looks much cooler than the regular version. I don't care for the checkered design on these figures, but I guess it's to make it "nitro" by having some racing design. But the gold definitely looks better than her original colors. I never cared for her at all (as it seems others think, too, since there are so many hanging on the pegs), but I actually like this one. Maybe because her original design is so dark and seems dull and dreary to me, and this just pops.

If you give a worker the DPCI, they can find it for you. I am guessing the vast majority of stores did not have her out today. The workers seem to all have the same uninformed response, "We did not get any new shipments in. Plus, video game things come out on Tuesdays. Check back then." Just show them the DPCI and they will be able to see if they have any in stock or if any nearby stores do. Happy hunting. Picked up Nitro Head Rush and Legendary Bushwhack today. Really looking forward to wave 4 coming out, especially because it is such a large wave for many of us in the states. I still need Bat Spin and High Five.

Show them the sale paper. It's in there, that gets them moving. They tried the "Tuesday is new electronics day", but gave that up when presented with it being in the sale paper and did not say it was a Tuesday release. Give them an opportunity to do the right thing, then speak to a manager - this is an advertised sale item, and with a DCPI number they can easily check (and you can on those red machines as well).

I mean I'm usually pretty understanding about how crappy retail work is, but if they have an advertised item in stock, it better darn well be available for purchase.

I showed them the paper...got told "the trucks didn't come" and one even brought the manager who said "sorry, limited quantities no rain-checks" to which I asked "did you get any in, it's 10am the day they are supposed to be here" to which I got a "I don't care shrug". It was clear they were feeding me bull.

That is when you pull up the DPCI on one of their red machines and if it says quantity greater than 0 you ask the manager if he would like to retrieve it for you or if he would like you to discuss not stocking items in their advertisement with corporate. Sites like Brick Seek show stock that is on the way but hasn't necessarily arrived, but those little machines will say if it is in the store in the stockroom.

They pay quite a bit for these ads and for exclusives, store managers too lazy to ensure their store is stocked right doesn't go over well with corporate. Back in college I had a manager at an EB I worked at that decided unpacking new stock during the holidays was too much effort, when the DM showed up for an inspection and found boxes stacked in the back he didn't last very long.

#45 Posted: 08:51:13 16/02/2015
I agree with defpally go look it up on their red machines...if they are in the store and your getting the snub off you need to inform corporate and they will pay them a visit...and im sure you would love to be a fly on the wall in that training room when he/she calls the manager an supervisors in. Where is this store anyways GhostRoaster?

I went into Target looking for a Love Potion Pop Fizz (since one of the DCPI sites listed it as having one) and finally found it. It had fallen from the peg and was sitting behind the starter packs underneath (you could tell it had just fallen, as someone who was hiding it would have done a better job). Since they were supposed to be B2G1 (even though there was no sign), I asked about Nitro Head Rush. The guy went to look on his device they use to look items up, but before he did, he opened up a drawer and pulled out one. I'm wondering if they had put it on hold for someone (sorry about that, if you missed out on it in my area).

Since we've had all this wonderful winter weather, I just decided to order one online a few days ago. We received it today in the mail, but my excitement dwindled quickly after seeing that her back leg was glued to the base instead of inside of it. Also, the paint isn't horrible, but it isn't great either. This is easily the worst paint on a figure we have to date. This bums me out because I actually like the Nitro look more than her normal one (even with the Smurfy blue skin!).

Since the launch of Trap Team, I've seen way to many damaged parts and/or sloppy paint jobs. My kids don't care about the details, but I'm not too happy with the overall quality of this figure. I always prefer to inspect figures in person first before purchasing, but our nearest Target stores usually have had the Nitro figures for a week or less before selling out. So, ordering online was our best option to get her. Better than nothing (or inflated secondary market prices), but still a bit disappointing for me. The kids are happy just to have her though, and that's what matters most to me.

With Target's demise in Canada, it seems Activision made it a Walmart exclusive up here. I just found her this morning, and she looks way better than the regular Head Rush.
