EB games now has Kaos up as a preorder bonus smilie

I had to have it shipped though coz pickup wasn't available at many stores for some reason.



All EB stores should have it. You just won't get it until actual release day. I'm not too sure what you mean by 'pickup wasn't available at many stores'.


Well yeah obviously .
Meaning when I tried to select a pickup location, only 2 stores were available in Victoria to select from



Oh you ordered online. Yeah that's a bit buggy when you choose pick up. Either go in store to pre-order or pre-order online and get it sent to you xD

Dammit, I thought you meant there were six more added since they put wave one up. I'm not expecting regular Chompy Mage until next year (but we get most variants around the same time as other places, so... Noel Chompy Mage in November, probably).

We got legendaries, steel plated smash hit, Christmas dive clops, all the Easter things and the nitro vehicles for superchargers.

I just called my local EB about the PS3 Dark Edition, they rang head office and said the PS3 and 360 DEs might be cancelled... I doubt the 360 version is since it's still up on the site, but there's so little news, I guess this is something to share.

... Seriously, what the heck with the lack of information this year? I know he's day one in America, but do we even know for absolute sure that we get Legendary Tri-Tip on day one? What of Steel Plated Hood Sickle? I assume Candy Coated Chopscotch isn't out until the next wave either, but... More immediately, does anyone know where the best prices are and what Crystals, Chests and double packs will cost, or if Gryphon Park Observatory is any cheaper than Thumpin' Wumpa Islands?

Anyways. I'm just gonna go preorder everything. Bye ~

I don't know...

Might be a real thing. We'll see I guess.

Maybe not all released on day one I think though , but maybe the wave 1 and wave 2 gap is really short this year, like within the first month.

wave 1 does seem a little small, even with the crystals.
Not including the senseis in the starter packs , there's only like 8 senseis to actually buy in wave 1 . So maybe they decided to move up the wave 2 release.

It might also explain why stores worldwide seem to have this wave 1 and 2 day one confusion.


Also are those Australian prices ? Coz if so the crystals are actually a pretty good price for us considering the US price is $10 .

Yep, I got the list from my EB Games (asked about SPHS and was surprised when regular Hood Sickle was listed). If we don't get W2 at launch I think there's a chance it could come out on the same day as TWI, but that's being optimistic.

Yeah I agree.

Also yay . If crystals are 11$ at EB games they might just be $10 at big w and Kmart etc.

Sure our senseis and adventure packs are pricey , but it's nice they tried to keep the crystal cost down.

Awesome smilie

Realising we're now exactly within a week of the release, I'm becoming even more confident in getting wave 2 figures on or near launch day.

From my experiences with ebgames at least, they usually arnt know to share release dates unless they're pretty certain of them, especially with us being this close to the date.

But I'm trying not to get my hopes up lol

Thankfully I'm going to Big W before anywhere else anyway, as I do every year now, so I hope they have good prices to match.

Yeah I noticed the 12th embargo thing too lol,it's super annoying.

I've found Big w and target to be pretty competitive on day one, so they probably didn't want to release their prices yet.
It'll be interesting to see what wave 1+2 ( or whatever it is now lol ) actually consists of exactly. I'm expecting something random to appear as an exclusive somewhere.

I'm actually half expecting the 8-crystal pack at jb hifi or something lol.


Ooo also my preorder of the dark starter pack from ebgames now says it's been "shipped" smilie

I do have to say it's weird no other places seem to be getting W2 at launch, and I apologise in advance if there was a misunderstanding over that, though if nothing else it's a good sign W2 is already in EB's system.

No probs. with regards to wave 2, I believe in our ebgames lol,they don't usually jump the gun with skylanders release dates.

These catalogue prints don't look like they were made by each store, they are literally almost identical to the Argos catalogue leaked in America 3 months ago aswell. So they might not exactly represent the whole stock.

It looks like these catalogue images were decided on by the franchise months ago.

Just a pic of the target one so we don't need the links anymore.

And all I kept doing was checking the websites... I feel so stupid. I really should have checked darkspyro for forums about this sort of thing.

Kmart are phasing out their games department, they've had a huge clearance on Toys to Life in particular. Any exclusives they would have gotten will presumably be snapped up by Target now


I noticed the Kmart thing too. .Maybe jb hifi will pick up their exclusives . I might be wrong, but I think jb high was the only place to have the 8-pack of traps back in TT days . So maybe they'll get the 8-CC pack this year.


Yeah, the 8-pack was at JB. Honestly, my current plans are assuming we won't get it (I wasn't expecting to earlier and I think it's better for me to wait and hopefully be surprised), but I hope you're right.

I think the 8 pack of crystals from a TT was $45 ( from memory) . It was definately under 50 .
If we get the 8 CC pack I think it might be about $60 at the cheapest on release.
