Looks like I'm not getting it today. Might even not get it until next week. It happened again for the 2nd year in a row...



Why has it been delayed, thats not like amazon. They are usually good. However you saying this I remember when I was a lurker and saw your posts about a delay for tt. Whats the hold up from there end, do you know?
Game were good to me today, as was my travels around Bristol. Got everything I was looking for, good luck in your hunting.

The golden hot streak was in an xbox one starter set btw, although it is appearing across all sets.

Another edit to say that the steel plated smash hit were on the shelves in tesco extra yate Bristol this afternoon, they had at least 50 on the shelves.


Mental note, Must update my signature, it is so out of date.

Last year when it was delayed that was because of Smyths. My Amazon is prime but it was sent with Royal Mail yesterday so it won't arrive until tomorrow or next week.

Weird they used royal mail for prime, for me they usually deliver themselves. A few figures I got from them arrived today and were delivered by amazon (not meaning to rub it in), I live in a tiny village as well.

For the first time, I've gone pretty light on a Skylander release date. Only Dark Wii U, Sea Racing pack and Steel Plated Smash hit to get me going. I'll admit, I've been skeptical about SuperChargers, but aside from the vehicle segments controlling a little clumsily, it's pretty good.

Was also hoping to get a Nitro Stealth Stinger and a Legendary Hurricane Jet-Vac, but neither of my local stores had any, which is peculiar.
Game had the Wave 2 Vehicles in stock though.

The vehicle controls have been discussed quite a lot on here, you can go into the settings and change them and apparently vehicles control MUCH better after.

Pleased yours arived today finally Bob, I've still yet to unbox and play a game, haha.

After a busy day yesterday, waiting around for deliveries and driving around for the exclusives, I have finally put almost all of them together in one picture. I am still awaiting the dark starters for wii and wii u, I got them at less than retail however have to wait for international delivery on those. So here we go, a picture of the first wave united. I'm still not sure about whether to take them out of the boxes or not.

How weird, but oh well.

25 is a lot though if you don't intend on getting all of them. Especially with the limited choice that this game has given you.

Called in at my local Game this afternoon. They were SOLD OUT of all individual character packs!! Though there were plenty of vehicles.

Anyone else found this?

And what does it mean? That Skylanders are still very popular, but vehicles not so much?

Look at it this way. Each skylander is unique and will carry into the next game, whereas you only need to buy 2 vehicles (one if you got the dark starter) and they are not really all that different from each other besides visuals.

To me figures selling and vehicles not kinda makes sense. At least to me.

I mean we got the vehicles, but there has been total silence beyond that as far as I was aware.

Also I am guessing we wont be getting Frightful Fiesta "normally" here at this stage.

I was at the massive Game store at the Metro Centre. Same thing - no single figures but loads of vehicles. Never mind hey?

Just a quick heads up: Gameseek are doing skylanders really cheap.

http://www.gameseek.co.uk/sear...s+superchargers

Dive Clops, Fiesta and Terrfin are £9.71.
Stormblade is £11.71
Vehicles are £11.69 to £12.75
Gill Grunt racing pack is £28.99.

I believe thats the cheapest in the UK atm.

You also get points on all purchases and get 3% cashback at Topcashback too!

Sometimes you may need to ask an employee, I had to ask when I went to the release, they only had the trap team figures out and when I asked, they went to the store room and brought out a few boxes full of figures.

It was quite funny when I asked though because she asked "what one do you want?" and I just replied "all of them". smilie

I managed to find my golden hot streak by asking tesco staff if they had one out back.
However I have also had tesco staff say they had no more of other products only to find them on the shelf later on, I think like a lot in life it depends on the person you speak to
TTD Hunter Gems: 3984
#2087 Posted: 18:20:22 05/10/2015
I guess that I'm just lucky, well either that or my local Tesco is one of their main stores and the one that they normally use for adverts and promotional photos ect. But yeah, they don't know what they're talking about when it comes to skylanders, Superchargers and trap team are the same game as far as they're concerned. You can always do click and collect and you can pick your item up the next day from customer services regardless whether they have it in stock in store or not (they'll just order it in).

Any signs of Frightful Fiesta yet?
Somewhere should have it by now. I have a suspicion of ASDA having the exclusive, which ain't good as they've stopped selling online for skylanders. If any one gets the chance, check around asda skylanders displays and report back. If not, I should be able to make a trip up, though my nearest asda is dreadfully far away.

If Asda doesn't have it, then maybe GAME will get it nearer to Halloween or Argos.

I check my ASDA every time I am nearby (most recent was a couple of days ago) and can confirm that Frightful Fiesta is not there.
