June 22nd is Sklyanders Day at Gamestop [CLOSED]

June 22nd gamestop will be having a huge savings and deals for skylanders. The day Is also the day PW comes out. The starter pack will be 39.99 and the first 25 people will get a swap force poster. Also, a free skylander/sidekick will be given with purchase of the starter pack (I think) and all who make a skylanders purchase will be entered in a raffle to win a starter pack, characters and/order accessories. This all ends at 2pm on that day so good luck to all.

If battle packs really are 9.99 might have to try and grab a golden cannon if they have one. I bought the original at TRU on release day and didn't really care about the color, for that price though, I would be happy to own a couple duplicates and the gold cannon.

Basically the promotion is like this as you can see it on any gamestop monitor if you walk in, saw it today:

First 25 people in gamestops get a free swap force poster
All starter packs are 39.99
Polar whirlwind is released "officially" (some stores have put her out prior so some stores may do just that)
Sidekicks are given out free as well - I don't think it even takes a starter pack purchase to get one.
All battle packs are 9.99
Raffle for free starter packs
Lasts until 2pm

I see the deals as clearing out stock as in many gamestops like the ones I frequent have an influx of stuff they can't get rid of due to the high prices. They're hoping to be cleaned out of stuff for now and polar is a good way to get others in. I'm just hoping I can actually get polar for someone due to the fact of not knowing how many they'll have. I'm hoping they get them in early and I can get one or two before the 22nd.

3. I saw an ad at GameStop on their Advertising TVs.

Just like the supposed box art to swap force with the green icons for the elements and the title of the game on it

Unless your eb games/gamestop has the monitors that play and talk of the event, and the employees don't know anything about it you can check but i would say no because of that

Wow, meant crowd. I swear I type like I'm dyslexic or something.

But yes, scalper crows descending from the sky and stealing away the skylanders sounds about right.

Possible but that all depends on how many gamestops you have in an area, there tends to be more than one, just keep yourself up to date on which do what for the week and you should be fine, though getting there early is also a safe bet.

No you have to be in store to get it. It's also all the GIANTS starter packs since someone asked on that

Now you see why posting about the amazon.it version was a really good idea for most people as in a much, much easier way if slightly more expensive to have her in hand and not jumping through hoops. Unless the gamestops have more than six each of her for U.S. release in each store I would say it's going to be a problem for most if they need more than one or one at all. I have a feeling like the canadian ebgames that she won't be even put on the website to order too, unless you pay for an expensive bundle. So yeah I would even expect this type of hurdle for a special figure again when swap force comes around.
