Wow I was pretty close to the prices. So this means target will charge about $15 for Superchargers on sale day.

Bump.

Does anyone know about these?

  • Frightful Fiesta (outside of EB Expo, not rich or close enough to go there)
  • Steel Plated Smash Hit
  • Nitro Stealth Stinger
  • Hurricane Jet-Vac/Jet Stream Double Pack
  • Shark Shooter Terrafin/Shark Tank Double Pack

Really want the Double Packs :/ I'm dying for Jet-Vac and Jet Stream and I probably won't get Shark Tank outside of some bundle like the Double Pack.

Also, can I say how lame it is that we just get Frightful Fiesta at EB Expo when America seems to be getting Golden Hot Streak from one of their giveaways? (I can't remember what it was, something at New York I think? But it mentioned they would give away Hot Streak, likely the Golden version because regular will be ridiculously common)

Targets usually the best option on release day for characters and game . I'm pretty sure last year I got trap team for like $ 69 or something on release day there.

mantez, great! Do you know if it's on release date?

I buy everything from EB Games and just price match there haha. I'm pretty regular at mine. Usually Big W and Target are best to match with and JB are useless. IIRC Target had the best prices last year (for amiibo too!).

I think someone said they would get Legendary Jet-Vac. Wish I had a Big W closer to me, but at least I don't need to go to TRU 40 minutes away. :p

I'm just worried that we won't get them at all because we didn't get Trap Triples last year. (Heard they came out exclusively at TRU, but I've never seen a single one- the TRUs near me stopped selling TTL items altogether.)

I honestly find it kinda dumb that the Double Packs would be exclusive to somewhere, but whatever, I can see why.

TRU in Aus don't do Skylanders (or any gaming stuff) any more. Trap triples were at Kmart.

As for frightful fiesta I have no idea. The EB mod who answered said it will be available in stores.

Nirto Stealth Stinger a Target exclusive.

Nice! Was there any other information about Skylanders in the catalogue? Like day 1 prices or anything?

I am pretty sure they have for the starter $79 on the signs in store. However there is nothing in the catalogue.

Bad news. I spoke to Target representatives on Facebook, who contacted the buying team. Target won't be stocking the air or life minis. You can pick up Gnarly Barkley still, though. Other than that, we just miss out =(

Yeah Kmart sucks usually. Last year the couple of kmarts I visited didn't have the trap team stuff out release day anyway or if they did it wasn't till night time.

That's good targets changed it too coz the catalogue suggests the 24th still with the nitro stealth stinger advertisement . The catalogues weird anyway for advertising stealth stinger but not actually advertising the game lol but I guess target and big w try n keep their pricings secret till the last minute for these types of games these days.

As we are hyped up for the new skylanders release, I am still hunting for the trap master figure - enigma at the moment. Kinda miss him on the shelf, does anyone know where I might be able to find him? I tried few big w, k mart and target and none has him. I am in melbourne, would really appreciate any info on him from fellow skylanders hunter in melbourne.

I'm trying to work out where to go on Wednesday, as all the stores are in different spots.

I think in Australia we have:

- The Dark Edition starter packs at EB Games,
- Legendary variants at Big W (Leg. Jet-Vac only on day 1),
- Nitro variants at Target (Nitro Stealth Stinger),

but I'm not sure about Frightful Fiesta (EB perhaps?) and Steel Plated Smash Hit (what store normally gets the Best Buy exclusives here?). Does anyone here know where they'll be on release day (if they're even here at all?)

I've already preordered the Wii U dark edition and really like Nitro Stealth Stinger, so I guess I'll head to Target first than back to EB for the rest. Only really interested in Legendary Sun Runner, so I'll skip Big W (which is fine by me, there aren't any that close to me). I'm torn about Steel Plated Smash Hit, I prefer his original colours by a mile but as one of my favs I'd love to play him from the start - guess it's not an issue if I can't find him! I'm hoping that the ordinary Nintendo starter packs will have decent stock levels despite containing amiibos, as I've only saved up so much and would rather get the 3DS version later on.

Ordinary starter packs are $79 JB HiFi, $89 at Kmart and $99 at EB Games. I haven't found any pricing info for other stores.

#32 Posted: 16:00:11 19/09/2015
Frightful was confirmed earlier on this page to be coming to EB Games, but it's not confirmed if he'll be out at launch. I think Big W typically got the Walmart exclusives, but I might be wrong on that (pretty sure they got Enchanted Hoot Loop and some other Walmart exclusive, but EB got Enchanted Star Strike, and honestly I can't remember any ingame variants exclusive to Walmart after those).

Frightful fiesta is being sold at the EB games expo in Sydney next month so it probably wont be in store circulation till after that .

I'm not expecting us to get the smash hit variant day 1 , but if we do it'll probly be big w or target anyway.

Anyway, does anyone know where single packs are the cheapest?

mantez, where are you finding those prices? Whenever I price match at my EB Games, they ask for a source, so I'm looking for a catalog or online page showing the price.

Also, Target and Big W's sites suck e_e

My current plan is just to go to my local shopping center, which has EB Games and Target. I can get most of the stuff from my preorders at EB and Nitro Stealth Stinger from Target (plus, if it's not out at EB Games, the Jet Stream Pack). I don't really care about Legendary Jet-Vac and unless someone else gets SSSH or something, there's no reason to go anywhere else.

I can never be bothered with the whole evidence thing so I generally just ignore EB games. But if you need evidence, both stores should release another Small catalogue or advertisement or update their sites just before release or on the day .

Big W is the winner so far! I'll have to hike further afield, but ah well. Worth it if I can make my savings reach little further : )

I'm a little torn, tbh. I ordered the Dark WiiU pack ages ago, as I'll be playing on the 'U, would like the Kaos trophy and didn't have a great first impression of classic DK's yellow jumpsuit. It's grown on me since though, whoops! If money was no object I'd get classic WiiU for Barrel Blaster, classic PS3 for Spitfire and Hot Streak, classic 3DS for Bowser and try my luck at negotiating my Dark WiiU preorder over to the PS4 version for the Kaos Trophy and Dark Sea Shadow. That's way over budget though smilie Though if I can spare the the extra 64 bucks I guess I could go for Dark PS4 and classic WiiU, and pick up the other two later... It'll really depend on what figures are available at launch.

Eh. Honestly I'll probably keep changing my mind about what I want to get until I'm standing in line about to pay. Never actually been around for the launch of the other games, so I'm just having fun smilie

Speaking of never having done this before, how long do figs usually stay on the shelves? I assume the rare stuff will be kicking around for a couple of weeks, but then again half of wave 4 and 5 of TT were gone almost instantly... I'll be buying on the 23rd because it's actually quite a convenient day for me, but it'll be good to know for planning purposes. Should I prioritize figures that are rarer (Nitro SS, Fiesta and Crypt Crusher), or just get who I most want to play as and pick up the rest later?

Alright, thank you! ^_^

@Quid Usually Wave 1 hangs around.
I would say don't wory about Legendary Jet-Vac, since he doesn't seem popular and should be well-stocked.
If you want it, though, I'd get Nitro Stealth Stinger because some people are probably gonna buy it just to Supercharge SSStealth Elf before regular Stealth Stinger is out.

Looking at the case assortments for Wave 1, I recommend buying Fiesta, Crypt Crusher and Sea Shadow, because all seem popular but their case assortment isn't as high as the others. Also notable: Jet-Vac and Terrafin don't seem to be getting restocked with Wave 2, so you may want to buy both Combo Packs.

@Drawdler Thanks for the advice! It's really helpful : )

Just in case people here are avoiding other threads b/c spoilers, there's been yet another Hot Streak variant showing up, I think in some starter packs replacing classic Hot Streak? Maybe this is why the E3 HS was showing up as Golden HS in the demo a while back. It'll be interesting to see if this variant makes it over here as well.

Golden Hot Streak IS available in Aus for anyone wondering. Found two in PS4 Starters at a Target. Good luck!

I also found both Dual Packs at the same Target but none of the GHS or Duals at Big W.

Heading to EB Games, will update on wether I find Frightful Fiesta.

Also, EB Games have Wave 2 listed on their site. Oct 26 :( At least we have a release date this time.

Edit: no Frightful Fiesta. Although... I forgot to ask ^_^'
