Polar Whirlwind out now in Canada [CLOSED]
IWHBYD Yellow Sparx Gems: 1274
#1 Posted: 06:15:07 31/05/2013 | Topic Creator
Just wanted to let you guys know that EB Games in Canada will be getting Polar Whirlwind within a week, the manager of my local EB told me that they received an email about it today and it said to expect them as early as Saturday. I know I will be asked for proof / pics or it never happened. I do not have any of that but I would encourage you to call your local EB Games and inquire about it. If I get mine before there are a million pictures from other people who got it I will post pics. I assume it will arrive in the US soon seeing as we are almost always behind in Canada.


Edit, As people have posted Polar Whirlwind is now out in Canada. I expect that a US release is very close.

Frankly, at this point, it would surprise me more to find out this were false. I'm going to give this one the benefit of the doubt, simply because the product in question is so overdue on this side of the Atlantic. In any case, here's hoping.

Yeah it is way overdue, it's been a decent stretch here in Canada recently though. We finally got the SSA sideicks at EB Games a short while ago along with Scarlet Ninjini, today (atleast in my area) we got Lightcore Pop Fizz and Chill and very soon Polar Whirlwind. Hopefully Lightcore Hex and S2 Drobot will show up soon. I find the releases to be way to spread out with Skylanders, honestly I'm done with Giants, I'm sure I'll play through again one day but I would like to have had all of the characters before I was finished with it.

@Bolded, I just hate it when people do that >.<
But don't worry, believe you. Of course I'm not exactly going to call up my local EB to
see if they really are there, but I'll keep my eyes peeled incase they're in stock smilie

I'm disappointed at our lack of Molten/Jade, and it really drags my hunting excitement down. smilie I'm now worried about wether we're going to get Polar because she's the only non-game variant I want(besides Gnarly, who is just way too much of a hassle)...

I don't get why it's expected to come to North America.

Did Glow in the Dark Fright Rider ever make it here? True everything else did, so does that mean Activision listened to our complaints?

What do you mean Polar is the only non-game variant? When you play her she looks the same in-game btw

I always considered glow in the dark stuff like the flocked items just a tad easier to find (minus the ones from ssa). The actual variants that change in game like gnarly, molten, scarlet etc i think will get everywhere one way or another.

I'll go ahead and say this, as someone is bound to eventually... There is a BIG difference between Polar and Glow Blow. Polar actually appears the way the figure does in-game. Glow Blow is just marked as "Special". Polar may be a different palatte form of Whirlwind, but it is still as good as a different character as far as the game is concerened. Not much special about Glow Blow other than the figure glowing in the dark.

In-Game variants are much more likely to appear everywhere than non-game ones. There's a reason they use non-game variants for the convention exlucsives and things like that, because they are only special to the collectors who would want them in the first place. Glow Blow makes a bad example of why Polar wouldn't appear everyhwere. Dark Spyro single is a better example, and even then not by that much as he was still released everywhere through the SSA 3DS starter.

Random side note: I would kinda like to get a GiTD Fright Rider and name him "Glow Blow" in the game. smilie

Speaking of in-game variants being released everywhere, was there any news on Royal being released outside the US? (I live in the US so it doesn't effect me, I'm just waiting to upgrade my phone first. I just think its fair that everyone gets every figure. Especially if my over seas friends start playing.) Maybe a Royal single pack like SSA got for Dark? I'm sure to check GameStop several times in the next 3 weeks for Polar. I'll try to report anything I find. (I don't know how pics or etc. work here so you'll have to take my word, sorry.)

Obviously, she should show up looking like a S1 Whirlwind, but she should work. That means 50 Heroics....
