Well, I finally got my GITD Swarm Mech Invasion. I gave in and got it from Amazon, but it seems to be in good shape! smilie (And I save a few bucks)

I was holding out for a normal Swarm as well but caved and picked up the GITD right before they announced the Flynn Ship. Now I guess I'm glad I got it as it is the only one I'll be able to get.

With all the newlanders for SSF, the chances of getting some of my faves from SSA are shrinking. But looking at all the characters I already have, I can't complain, I just hope that the sales for the line are good enough for it to continue for a while.

Zylek, I agree, I hope the sales hold up! I'd hate to see these discontinue...

I don't think so. For me, it's the series 2 ones that are hard to find! (well, I guess Trigger Happy and Terrifin are slightly hard to find, as they're not always in stock. Chop Chop and Ignitor are the ones that are always around, at least here in PA.)

@JetVac96, are you new to collecting the mega blocks?

Aw, man, Eruptor's the only one I need yet! My local target seems to be clearing out their stock. But I'll check again tomorrow since I'm gonna go in to check for Pumpkin Eye-Brawl, anyway. Haven't been there in a few weeks, so maybe I'll get a nice surprise. smilie

@joeiscool, that's a bummer! smilie

I think that Target is selling out their current stock to make room for the new SSF rebranded packaging. It would make a lot of sense for Mega to switch over to the new packaging right when SSF comes out to take advantage of all the hype.

I picked up the single pack Trigger Happy to just get the machine gun yesterday since it was on sale. I think most of the Skylanders mega bloks were marked down. I wonder if Target will have another exclusive when they switch to the new packaging. Walmart's Molten Hot Dog is shown in the Giants packaging on the Mega website, and series 2 for that matter.

^I'd suggest Five Below for the Hero packs. They're the cheapest. And Walmart for the battle portals. They sometimes run specials. Though right now at Target, like Zylek said, all their mega blocks are marked down. If you want my opinion, I'd get the exclusive sets first, just in case they disappear. I had to get my Walmart exclusive Swarm Mech Invasion online from Amazon as it seems to have suddenly disappeared from the shelves. smilie Now the only exclusive I'm missing is the Toys R Us Legendary set.

I will definitely try to get the Walmart enemy packs first because I saw them and I know how hard it was for some of you guys to find them. I also think my Walmarts have taken the GITD set of the shelves too.

Good call! I saw the enemy packs once and was glad I grabbed them. I haven't seen them since....
As for the GITD set, I don't know if they've gotten rid of them for the new packaging, or if they're gone for good... That's why I quick grabbed one on Amazon while they were cheap. smilie

Off-topic slightly but seems like this Skylanders license has led to MB getting the Call of Duty license as well. Some of the sets have been put up on TRU, but MB don't seem too happy about this. They've been trying to delete all evidence of the line today.

Wow, the new sets look awesome. I like the new gameplay of the new arcade set. I think if they are going to get more of the characters out there, they are going to need to offer "new" characters in the single packs instead of the odd color variations, I know they would sell better if that was the case.

BTW, Legendary Trigger Happy is now on TRU.com:

Chompy Bot Attack (Thumpack's set) is still coming out as normal this fall. The only announced sets that aren't in this line up anymore are Hex & Prism Break's Battle Portals, I'm not sure what's happened to them but I really hope they work their way out to retail as they were essentially the figures I was most looking forward to.

Chop Chop probably just comes with two swords,Gill Grunt with an anchor to attach to gun and Pop Fizz with a giant potion bottle, kinda lame but better than trans Bash or metallic Cynder if you ask me.

Depending on personal choice, the following news from Mega might not be good news...

The stands you see attached to the Swap Force figs are molded onto the figures and are not removable.

All of these sets (except Sprocket's Heroic Turret) have been added to Tesco's website in the UK, so they should be here soon too. Can't wait for someone to review them!

It would be cool if the Pop Fizz that is in the hero pack wave 3 was Punch Pop Fizz.

As for the 4 pack featuring Granite Crusher, it would make sense for it to be a Target Exclusive since to date, the retailers have gotten their Mega Bloks equivalents of their Game counterpart. Like Walmart is getting the Molten Hot Dog portal pack and TRU has gotten the two Legendaries packs.
