I guess they're pushing them out sooner so they can all be pawned off on unknowing holiday shoppers. As of right now, they're overpriced shelf warmers. There isn't much of a market for Eon's Elite at the $20+ price point.

  2. So all three are coming out together? Not like how they had with the first three? That's cool if so.

Like I said in my post about them coming out on Dec. 31st, that's what the employee told me, but then figured it was a placeholder date.

I can confirm the 11/29 release date is real at TRU. I was at my local TRU yesterday to get EE Slam Bam, and they had EE Ghost Roaster, EE Boomer and EE Dino-Rang out on the shelf. Tried to buy them but register locked until 11/29.

Exactly. The only confirmed release we have on these three is 11/29 at TRU, even if they may release elsewhere.

I'm sure they will hit other stores soon after, but the stocking might be spotty. It seems some of the retailers are already leery of overstocking Skylanders with the other TTL games sharing space, carrying a large number of "collector" items probably isn't going to happen.
mastermc54 Emerald Sparx Gems: 3291
#23 Posted: 19:18:10 17/11/2015
Eon's Elite should remain exclusive to TRU. Stores are already cluttered up as it is with Skylanders and there are just too many price points between a Supercharger, a vehicle, dual packs, triple packs, racing packs, starter packs, and dark starter packs. Even retailers are struggling to make sense of it all. Why clutter up shelves at all retailers with Eon's Elite when they have already proven not be moving well and are collecting dust at GameStop stores? It really is unnecessary for other stores to get them as there's a very small market collecting them. The general public and target audience (kids) don't want to pay $20 or more for a Skylanders on steroids with a fresh coat of paint and a fancy box. Look at Disney Infinity 1.0's crystal series...every Joe who wants one has one, so TRU is selling them for $1 today. Deep discount is where these are going to end up eventually!

The first TRU I was at had all three of them out on the shelves, but they were register locked. I went to a second TRU later, and they had EE Boomers out on the shelves. I figured I'd at least see if I could buy one here, and they actually let me!


Though I think there was a scalper there to, because they had an armful of boomers they tried to check out as I left.

Thanks for the post! I bought the three new ones plus EE Slam Bam to make the most out of the B1G1 40% off deal, and will return the second EE Slam Bam in store with the receipt from the first one that I paid full price!

This. I think Skylanders is suffering from so many different price points across the figures. Obviously, things like Racing packs would be more than a single, but I think it got to a point where people just didn't care about the extra bells and whistles on certain figures. It was why Lightcores died out, why Traps didn't really take off, and why Eon's Elite will continue to shelfwarm and collect dust until they drop down in price.

Personally speaking, I miss the old SSA prices. $7.99 for a single figure, $19.99 for a triple

How can you attract new customers to the franchise with the new price points? Children are the target audience...a kid can use his allowance to buy a toy at $7.99 or $9.99. The greed on the part of Activision raising the price of the cheapest figure above $10 is going to be the downfall of Skylanders. Parents/kids putting down their foot on the yearly cash pit, existing fan base outgrowing Skylanders, fans getting fed up with rising prices, merely average gimmicks, Toys to Life novelty wearing off, not enough new kids jumping on the Skylanders bandwagon, and increased Toys to Life competition...all trends leading towards the inevitable demise of Skylanders unfortunately. Activision can spin sales numbers however they want, but the outlook is bleak unless they really change things up and rethink their entire sales/marketing plan. Another average release with overpriced gimmick just for the sake of putting out a game because of an annual release timeline will definitely not work out well for franchise longevity.

The above is the ranting of a frustrated fan. Let's hope things change for the better.

#36 Posted: 02:12:50 24/11/2015
Last three are still register locked at retail locations. So, unless you pay 20-30 extra to get them before street date, people are best waiting until store launch, unless they want them between December 3rd and the 8th.

They are all street dated, but someone over rode the street date when I bought EE Boomer, because according to them, it's store policy that you have to let people buy it if it's out on the shelves, wether it's supposed to be out or not.

Other stores are getting them too. I saw some elites on the Target Wish List app while scrolling through Skylanders the other day...they'll probably be $2 less than what they are at TRU as well. Why support the TRU markup if you don't have to?

None are in stock for store or shipping as of this post.
My thoughts for why these 3 are elsewhere is the fact maybe that they have a better chance of selling these as they are returning figures that mostly haven't been seen in any other form since the early days of giants as left over SSA stock (minus tru getting dino back for abit a few yrs ago) Thou Voodood could somewhat fit in that logic too thou I know alot of Walmarts got him back with zook as part of there returning SSA figures for abit.

I went in to TRU on Sunday 11/22 to get Splat, LL Eruptor, and BB Pop Fizz. To my surprise they had all 6 EE figures out. I bought Boomer, GR, and DR as well as the wave 3 figures no problem. As a TRU rewards member, I also got them at BOGO 40%off. So I paid around $85 dollars for the 6 figures smilie . I posted a pic over at GR.com

Don't know if you can, Lemons. According to TRU stores, they're still register locked for this Sunday. Notice how no one has come here stating they bought theirs from a retail store, despite them going up on their website? Think it'll be this Sunday, this out of range for any potential BF sale.

I figured that there might not be a Skylanders sale tomorrow, so I ordered on Monday when they went up to get the B1G1 40 off on them. They just arrived today in good shape, so I don't need to run up to the store tomorrow.

If you want to ensure a sale price, I'd go ahead on order them online from the site (it appears Ghost Roaster is OOS right now, though). But you can get two of them and save on one.

I must've not noticed until Tuesday, cause I could not order mine and get the BOGO offer. I would've totally done that too (I guess they weren't dumb enough to ship these in mailers eh?). I might just as well wait for Target or someone else if they are not on sale tomorrow and save a few bucks.

It's TRU's marketing. They are more expensive on base prices, and have frequent sales. The idea is to attract people with sales, then they buy a few more things at full price while they are there. It isn't dishonest, it's just marketing. And as a "specialty" shop they do tend to make up for it with their stocking and availability.

Now what is dishonest along those lines is what JCPenney used to do for jewelry which was have a percent off sale then mark prices up that week so the sale price was about the regular price. They got slapped hard on that one several years back for deceptive advertising.

As far as a price match, you could ask but they probably wouldn't go for it. It isn't as bad as some of the crazy stuff people try to pull over on SlickDeals and CAG. They had a guy that went into Best Buy with the BF ad, his Elite card and found an employee that matched all the BF prices on last Monday during the online Elite Online only early sale. Half the items he bought weren't even part of the Elite event.
