So basically, I've seen (and gotten) everything there is from Wave 1. I haven't seen anything from Wave 2 so far, however. A guy at my local TRU said he doesn't expect anything wave 2 until November, which as I recall is about the same that happened last year, even though the US got Wave 2 from Giants almost right after launch... it's kind of annoying. I'm in Montreal (Qc), by the way.

I gotta say, though... I wasn't that big on the giants (except maybe Thumpback) but the swappers are just amazing. They're incredibly fun to play around with. Where as I got all the giants just for the sake of having them, I really want all the swappers and plan to play with all of them for sure. Can't wait to try Fire Kraken and Night Shift!

nice I really can't wait for stink bomb but if I see any wav 2 I will notify I did however pick up a nitro magna charge at target in pickering the other day and suppose to be getting more in stock.

I love this skylanders way more then giants. I didn't like being stuck on a ship in between levels.

Anyways i'll post if and when I find nething new

Good luck Happy hunting

That's a good question. I don't have him myself, so perhaps he never made it here or in very short supply like LC Smoulderdash and LC Star Strike.

Still nothing, huh... well, hopefully by the end of next week.

hey guys/gals =)

I remember from last year that roughly there is a 1.5 to 2 week difference to when we get the waves in comparison to the US. I remember seeing wave 3.5/4 at walmart 9 days after they hit the US.

on another note, DI is spot on with their releases (NA wide) There are actually reports and pictures showing that some ontario Walmart's broke the latest playset street date by 4 days (that's unheard of in CAN) that is what skylanders need to be, that's what I hoped for swap force but its still going to be the same stressful searching, wasted time and empty finds

cheers =)

What figure do you guys find hard to find? In Ottawa, no one seems to have the LC Smolderdash any more.

From what I've seen so far, it's the LCs that are hard to find. I was lucky to know the manager of my GS and had LC Star Strike, Smoulderdash and Grim Creeper aside, as they had only 1 of each. All stores I've been to since then don't have any of them (save for the legendary Grim Creeper which are plentiful at TRU).

I got my Star Strike for free thanks to a SCOP at Future Shop.

Too many lightcores around here. Hard to find the regular figures. I've seen lightcore star strike at four stores. Regular only at one.

Here in Oshawa tru walmart and best buy all have lots of stock of all the wave 1 figures except for nitro magna charge at target I only saw the 1 when I picked up mine a week ago but none in since. I was gonna pick up another incase someone needs 1 or keep him for a present but no luck yet I guess i'm lucky enough to have gotten the 1. Oh and if anyone is looking for giant figures except they have TONS at best buy and future shop in Oshawa if you live around the area but no lc pop fizz yet :-(

Oh well hopefully wave 2 should be here shortly

I'll post as soon as I see anything new in my area

Happy Hunting

Despite the Canadian Target flyer differing from its USA counterpart, I still believe they'll get wave two anyday now. Stores right across the border have had it for days, usually it shows up this side a few days later. I'd be very surprised if Target Canada doesn't have it by next weekend

That wasn't the case with the previous games. It consistently took two or more weeks for waves to hit Canada.

I'm still trying to find a few Giants figures. If anyone in the GTA finds or has a space series 2 Bash, Wrecking Ball, or Slam Bam, let me know. I've personally checked every store within 30km of me.

I live in Quebec City, I found all the figures of Wave 1 on Day One. I checked all the stores last weekend, didn't find any Wave 2. I'm gonna check again this coming weekend, but I'm pretty sure they will be made available early November.

So I just came back from my local EB and to my surprise, they had all 4 new swappers (Night Shift, Grilla Drilla, Fire Kraken and Boom Jet). Funnily enough, nothing new at TRU.

I also had no sight of the new core figures though (no Rip Tide yet! *is a sad monkey*) but I'm sure they'll turn up very soon.

So bottom line, check out your local game stores, Canadian people!

I checked a few walmarts in the markham/richomnd hill area = nothing new. I also checked out a few ebgames on highway7 and hwy48 = nothing new

xxseadragonxx which ebgames did you go to?

I'll disagree with you, as soon as Buffalo or Niagara Falls NY got them we got them in Niagara Falls ON at most 6 days later. From there it was a week later that Toronto and Hamilton got them consistently. I'm guessing because I'm close to the border I got them faster then you did perhaps?

Target had wave two swappers today, I posted that in another thread. People in Oakville aren't seeing them, so it reinforces what I said above!

I went to the one in Anjou (I live in Montreal, Qc). They had a several Night Shift, Grilla Drilla and Boom Jet but there was only 2 Fire Kraken left (now 1!) when I was there an hour or so ago.

I can confirm that EB Games now got all wave2 figures, the staff told me they just got them today. Bought the swappers except waiting on Jade Fire Kraken and Legendary Night Shift.

It's actually not that big of a deal for me. My stuff is staying sealed until Christmas Eve, when I will gift it to my daughter. Last year I couldn't wait until Christmas, so I gave Giants to her for her birthday in November. This year I am waiting.

If they stock these as well as they have wave 1, then there is no worry.

Just come back from a quick hunt

I went to markville/stouffville/bayview/high tech road/copper creek walmarts = nothing
I went to ebgames on hwy48 again today because i called them and they said they had wave 2 then when i come in store and the sales associate told me she was mistaken on that and to call back next week
TRU at high tech/markville told me they dont expect anything else until mid november for the christmas rush!

fun fun fun!

Yes, the one by Costco. I called before I went there and he listed off all the core ones by name so I went straight over. By the time I got there he realized that they had another box that contained 3 of each of the new swappables. There were only 2 of each left so I bought one of each leaving the rest. I only saw one of each of the core ones which I bought except for the new Terrafin since he is in the battle pack.

When you call around, make sure you ask for the figures by name. They get confused between "wave 2" and "series 2". I would try the eb games at Bayview and Major Mac. I've often had luck there.

I wouldn't be surprised if wave 2 shows up everywhere in the next couple of days.

If anyone needs Enchanted Hoot Loop, there are a ton of them at the Walmart at Haggises and Major Mac.

#37 Posted: 12:21:40 25/10/2013
Thanks Brokenleg! Yeah they tend to get confused on who is in which wave yet isn't that information they should know since they work for a video game store?

I tried bayview and major mac yesterday - nothing. I don't want to start travelling around again like I did for giants. I forgot to mention in my post above that EBgames Hwy48 location will be getting another delivery today (they dont know if its swap wave 1 or not)

I am hoping that walmart/TRU gets them this weekend

All the variants are annoying. Instead of useful figures, Walmart has shelves of Enchanted Hoot Loop and TRU has a wall of Legendaries. All the lightcore figures are a waste of space as well.

I'm heading to the mall today. Will stop at TRU and Target to see what they have.
Zing Blue Sparx Gems: 616
#39 Posted: 14:51:16 25/10/2013
TRU had nothing new. The EB in the mall had a full stock of wave 2. I grabbed one of each of the swap force. I'm still not sure if I want to start collecting the new regular skylanders. Although, I goofed, and forgot to get Grilla Drilla. I didn't see him on the shelf, and for some reason I thought there were only three swap figures in this wave. Oops. I'll just get him later.

I'd really like Walmart to get a shipment. I save 16 cents per figure there. Not much, but every bit counts.

We got Wave 2 in today (25th) but only core characters, such as Scorp, Riptide, Non Light core Star Strike, and then a bunch of the series 3 reposes.
No sign of the Swappers though smilie

Voodood, while is not as popular as Ghost roaster or Boomer, is a fun character that got no reposes, so you shoulda picked him up.

Visited multiple stores in Quebec city today: There was 1 of each Wave 2 Core/Reposes single packs (Riptide, regular Star Strike, Scorp, S3 Chop Chop, S3 Gill Grunt, S3 Trigger Happy, S2 Sprocket in one of the EB Games store. There was no Triple Packs though, but I bought them all anyway. I also saw a few new Core/Reposes in one of the Wal-Mart but they didn't had all of them and no Triple Packs. There was no new Swappers everywhere I went.
