blah, i just saw that EOI was avail online, and got there too late. saw them earlier while i was at work, but couldnt order from my phone as i didnt have a credit card on me. i am DYING to get EOI set. saw TRU.com had the legendary 3 pack also avail online, and a limit of 1 per customer, which i thought was awesome to prevent scalpers. I really think they should limit them in stores to 1 of each character, and like 5 single figures or 3 3-packs per person

I went to my local Toys R Us today, literally ten minutes before closing, and to my surprise they ACTUALLY had Skylanders left on the shelf! If I remember correctly they had; 3 Chop Chop, 3 Double Trouble, 3 Drill Sergeant, 2 Flameslinger, and 1 Whirlwind. I picked up a Drill Sergeant and a Double Trouble. I had the rest, but I would have gotten Chop Chop too, but I decided to save my money for Legendary Trigger Happy or Cynder, because I already have Legendary Chop Chop. It was definitely a good day. smilie

I had bought Whirlwind off of the Mighty Ape last week, and she arrived today, which is pretty good considering they shipped her yesterday :3 So for all you NZ'ers who are having trouble finding Skylanders, try the Mighty Ape. They're based in Auckland, and they have Cynder too ;)

I went to TRU today and they had every peg full of wave 2 singles.
Picked up Whirlwind :3

The employee was very friendly, and answered a few questions:

-The delivery was completely unexpected, not part of their normal trucks
-This was the first time they got wave 3
-He hasn't heard of the newest exclusives (L. Trigger Happy, Dragon's Peak, etc) but said they're going to get the legendary 3-packs in their next planned shipment
-He said he heard Walmart and Target have purchasing limits, I'm not sure how true that is

After dropping my youngest daughter off at her 4K class today, I decided to call the nearest game stop. They had received 6 single figures this morning. Someone had just bought four of them, and there was a Double Trouble and a Whirlwind left. Luckily, they held Whirlwind for me til I got there!

Now I just need a Life element Skylander. After we have one of each element, my craze for finding these things should wind down until there is a steady supply.

Just got the 3 pack i ordered online last week from TRU.com in

Drobot/Flameslinger/Stump Smash

Flameslinger is a double, so that kinda sucks, but i'll probably just give it to my gf along with one of my spyros so she can have her own

I got a phone call this afternoon from my husband to say he popped round to our local TRU during his lunch to see if they had any Skylanders (he was going to suprise me) and they told him that they had had a shipment in but they hadn't unloaded it yet but on the delivery note it said there was a crate of Skylanders so if I could get there in a couple of hours they would be out and ready to sell. So about 2 hours later I got there only to be told they'd still not unloaded it and it would be "anywhere from 5 minutes to half an hour" 3 hours later a shopping trolley with a fairly pitiful selection of Skylanders in it arrived and I managed to grab myself a Stealth Elf and a Sonic Boom (and a Bash and a Chop Chop for my neighbour's son). I was pretty dissapointed they didn't have any of the adventure packs (so was the neighbour boy) but I really wanted Stealth Elf and Sonic Boom so all in all I'm pretty happy.

Just managed to get Cynder and Whirlwind put on hold at Gamestop for my little sister and I. I doubted they would have any left when I came home from school about an hour ago because yesterday they told me to call at 11 today and I thought they would have sold out long before I got home to call them.

I called today inbetween classes, and the walmart a town over had just gotten a shipment. The employee, however, refused to tell me what they got, or hold any of them for me. I was pretty upset.

I ended up driving there anyway after my last class, and they had pegs full of Whirldwind, Chop Chop, Drill Sgt, Double Trouble, Flameslinger and Cynder. I decided to get Chop Chop, because I already have Eruptor, so the three pack wasn't an option, and Cynder, because she's pretty rare. Hoping to find a threepack of Whirlwind, Drill and Double Trouble soon (The walmart new price of 8.99 is too steep for me to buy outside of a threepack)

What an awful employee though, I used some choice words after that phonecall.

I just got Drill Sergeant and Double Trouble and Legendary pack at my local TRU.. I got the last Legendary pack which they just got in this week, because it was not there on Sunday.... They only had about 3-4 Drill S left... and only two DT. They had a ton of adventure packs, but no EoI. (I got EoI from them last week, one of only three they got in...)

When I checked out (the last Lengendary pack) the clerk said they had a mad rush and they went in a few hours and she had been getting calls all day long about what they had....

The only other one they had was flameslinger and Prism Break...

The other TRU across town had nothing but starter packs and two flameslingers... that was it... BB had nothing,

Not so much bought, but rather a sighting.

Spotted singles of Drill Sarge and Flameslinger at Walmart. Most of the NE Ohio TRU/Best Buy/Walmart/Target/Gamestop STILL don't have much of anything in. So good luck if you're hunting for anything.

I got Double Trouble at Gamestop, and then we went to Wal-Mart to buy pet food and decided to see if they had any, which I thought for sure they wouldn't. They had two Cynders, I didn't count how many Drill Segeants and Chop Chops, two Flameslingers, and two Whirlwinds. So I finally got Whirlwind.

After being absolutely sick to death of how poor the availability is in the UK, I hit eBay. No wave 3, some say early March, some say late March. Legendary skylanders aren't out till late March, the UK really is pathetic with Skylanders.

So, last week I spent £51 on the Double Trouble triple pack. Tonight I paid £23 for Cynder and last night I paid £83 for a Legendary triple pack, L-Trigg and postage from Canada. Already for L-Spyro so will be putting that back on ebay.

Feel a bit dirty but it's sickening to see minor territories getting wave 3 before us. Yes, I'm feeding scalpers, I'm also taking control from the awful distribution in UK.
