Good for you!

Stick to your guns, though.
If you're truly giving up, then really give up the hunt and let it go.

If you're just looking for pity or attention though .... here's the world's smallest violin playing a sad song for you!

Keep trying second-hand shops that sell used Skylanders. Try often enough and eventually it should pay off.

Check local craigslist very often, especially Saturday mornings when people are starting garage sales. I recently got a pile of Skylanders including the game, the full crypt pack and boomer for $70. I saw another bigger lot like that (had the crypt pack and boomer) at the same time. If you find something like that you can keep/trade/give/sell the rest.

Craiglist in my area is "wise" to Darklight Crypt's worth...I see them posted all the time, but asking close to $100 (often open already)...not thanks!

Maybe by some GRAND miracle, Activision will stumble across some unshipped boxes of Darklight Crypt's and say "Ahhhhh.....HERE they were the whole time!" and send 'em out!

If anyone can find me one pm me. I'll also pay full price plus shipping and send you any skylander giants figure you want I have 3 of each. I know no trading etc on the forum I'm just saying if someone isboffering to pick one up in interested. I went to my walmart today and the guy said one of their employees almost got fired yesterday nc he wqs going in the back opening all the boxes and taking the rare ones out. Behind him was a SSA ignitor in a voodood box huge factory error it looked amazing from a distance when he went to ring it up I noticed the packaging was open around the top so o didn't buy it. He said the employee had that figure in his hamds and the manager ripped it oit of his hands bc he was tired of the employee taking merchandise and pouring it on ebay before customers even had a chance at seeing them. The background was vodood bit had ignitor series1 in box and the name plate said ignitor too. I was so excited for about 1 minute ughhhh. So shooting this happens everywhere so we can't find a darkloght crypt.

So, did you sell your collection? I know from previous conversations we've had that you live in my area, and at that time you already had at least 1 full set of SSA figures as well as a couple of sets of all the Giants characters out at the time. So, what's up with needing another Darklight Crypt? All stores in our area were overloaded with those as well as Boomer until right around the launch of Giants. Are you now trying to collect a sealed set of SSA or something?

I agree with you DrillSarge ....i have NEVER and a say again NEVER!! seen a chase varient in any of the stores around here....for that reason..because every employee knows what there worth to the collectors...and all they see is the dollar signs flashing in there eyes....not realizing they could get fired over it.
Im not a major collector...but there are some i would have liked to have found.

It's not just the employees, though. My area is absolutely overrun with scalpers, flea market merchants as well as opportunistic employees. The store employees are lowest on the list due to the fact that they normally don't get much of the local "rare" merchandise so much as they phone/email/text the various other opportunists so they can come in right at stock time, or (in several cases that I've personally come across) after stock has actually been put out but "Oh, it looks like they missed a box in the back" and suddenly there's a box of whatever with all of the rare/shortpacked/artificially scarcified items from a line, and the guy who "showed up at just the right time" happens to buy the whole box. Most retail employees on here will openly admit that they'd get fired for hiding stock, buying it for themselves (on the clock, anyway), etc., but there's a lot of gray area when it comes to signalling other folks in.

You should see how few Marvel Universe figures there ever are on pegs in my area (save Falcon and Gladiator), but when you go to the flea market... (disgusted sigh)

#18 Posted: 21:24:16 22/08/2013
Yeah I would like to have a sealed set of DLC and a boomer. I have lots 8d be willing to trade or let go of for either one. I'm giving swap force a chance before I abandon skylanders. Infinity has been a great game with lots of hours of gameplay and unlimited potential. If we could take the pros from infinity and pros from skylanders it would make one epic game. I'm just done collecting. Insured of having several sets like I have I just want one of each. I've got a boomer 3 pack but id like to have the single or a DLC. Pm me anyone thats up for testing or discussing this further. Thanks

It's a shame trading etc is not allowed in this forum.

Does anybody have a recommendation of where that sort of activity should be done?
DrillSarge Gold Sparx Gems: 2327
#20 Posted: 22:33:02 22/08/2013
Its hard to policee bc of someone got ripped off who is most likely to get blamed? The mods or creator of this site You can still do it just send PMs instead of paying a topic. I'm willing to trade but instead of making a topic and advertising I just simply tell people to contact me via PM then contribute to the conversation.
Pyrofer Gold Sparx Gems: 2389
#21 Posted: 22:40:47 22/08/2013
It's sad that there is so much fear for the site!
Seriously, you can't blame them for a users actions.

Posting on this forum would be so useful for trades. Especially on items like DLC that are quite rare and have a regularly updated thread.

It would be easy to post here saying you have or want a DLC and would trade for blah/ or cash etc.

Is there another forum or single location for trading? (Sorry for going off topic a bit here!) In fact, don't post back here. PM me if you know where the correct place to trade/sell/buy (not eBay!) is and let this thread get back on topic.
shelly9871 Yellow Sparx Gems: 1246
#22 Posted: 22:50:53 22/08/2013
Agreed pyrofer
Paypal insures you so that is a safety measure...and clearly itd be "at your own risk." Its not logical to hold dark responsible for a transaction gone bad. But this has been discussed too many times. ..so I'll stop...
But agreed Pyrofer

Unless you're looking for an original E3 set of figures, based on the photos you've shared, you don't have anything much left to trade for, so I wouldn't worry too much. ;-D

Here is the picture of the two DLC's I saw in store today at my Walmart as proof that they're still out there. One of them sold within a 5 hour period (from when I found them while I was on my break to when I got off work) and the other is hidden under lock and key for my little sister now.

It is possible. They had to do a new run of Darklight Crypt for the Japan market for the release of SSA, so it would make sense they would run some for other markets given it is highly in demand.

Yeah, they could really rake in the dough if they send them out. Knowing we won't have one in Swap Force means they have a lot of untapped potential in the market...why should scalpers have all the fun?

i got 2last night at local walmart. they had them and dragons peak on shelf. and to top it off they had it hanging on a giants peg so i got them for 14.96 each!

Why would Walmart lower the price of an item because someone put it on the wrong peg?
shelly9871 Yellow Sparx Gems: 1246
#47 Posted: 16:43:49 24/08/2013
That is bizarre---People would do that all the time--"hey, it was on the shelf/peg/whatever that said it was cheaper, I should get that price." Or , "it was on the clearance rack--I should get it for that price." I can't imagine that working--ever.

Actually it does work. I argued with a tru employee once because all the SSA triples were on a rack that was lower then the rest of them and they honored it. Some were 28.99 others were 24.99. My wife also got a Power Ranger legacy morpher for 20.99 when they are worth 59.99 because 4 of them were in a spot with a tag saying 20.99. Does it work every time, prob not. If you find one lone thing somewhere wrong it doesn't, if it's many of them then it will.
