@newkill No it isn't. There's been a number of things that have reached Canada first. I'm trying to recall the exact figures though. I thought Polar Whirlwind did.

Ok yeah, I started collecting a few months after Giants was released, so I probably never witnessed a earlier Canada release.

Polar Whirlwind did release in Canada first before the U.S.

I know that legendary light core chill was released here (in canada) first as well.

and as for the assassins creed figures, yeah its kind of weird. They used to be locked up in the game cases. Maybe theyre trying to get rid of them. But these star strikes were placed off to the side of the rest of the skylanders display. They had way more than whats in my picture

Um, she isn't available in the US at all yet. No stores even have her in the back. We all know that she's at Walmart.

My Walmart (alberta, canada) also had well over 50 on the shelf. Good thing too as our puppy destroyed the one I boughtAnd the title is not misleading, she is out. Just not in the US. There are other markets out there...

What do you mean leaked her? She is available in all Canada, she has been released there first. When US gets earlier releases (almost all the time), we consider the concerned figures as being released even if they take 3-4 weeks before hitting our shelves. So yeah, Enchanted Star Strike is out now.

the title is not misleading because canada and the canadian portal masters which do count as people who play have her. Just as it has been said, polar was released a few weeks prior last year may-june a few weeks before the us had her. I would expect to see star strike earliest by sunday (next week) and latest by the time nitro freeze blade emerges.

Taking that last ride through the sunset on skylanders. Hopefully a return of more classic spyro gameplay in the horizon.

hahah, i know you do say that canadians count as people, but i do find it very funny that you felt the need to say it... canada is the neighbouring country to the US. Personally im surprised us canadians dont get more privileges. and every time we get a skylander released first, some (not all) people get upset. Well at least US gets figures released there, that canada never will. Such as ALL of the frito lay promotions. So dont boo hoo when we get some thing a few weeks first. I dont even want to mention how long it took to get wave 3 after US. I know some of you wont agree with my opinion, and i have had some strong ones lately. But I had to pay some one in the US over $200 for the frito lay quick draw, and halloween fright rider, that they got from a bag of chips. and if canada got them too, then people in the US who have a bunch of them, would not be getting those prices for them. So you have to kind of thank us for some things.

But yes, Canadians count as people, even if they speak French.

In all seriousness, I don't mind Canada getting things first, as long as I eventually get them too.

Btw, congrats on gold Canada. Well fought.

I'd wager we'll see her sometime in the next week or so here in the US. Perhaps they'll be putting them out with the Wave 4 things?

For Canada it was, my walmart literally know has 50+ enchanted star strikes on the legs and a so glue tower of time. No other skylanders at all.

I'm planning on getting her when I can, but I'm in no rush. I saw dozens and dozens of Enchanted Hoot Loops warming shelves at all of my local Walmarts when I was hunting for Wave 4, so I'm sure this one won't be any different.

I checked Walmarts in Princeton, NJ, North Brunswick, NJ and East Windsor, NJ and not one had Enchanted Star Strike. The Princeton, NJ one did happen to have one Scratch left, so it wasn't a total waste for me, lol.

#133 Posted: 18:19:58 13/03/2014
Nothing in the walmart on the loop in midland, TX. They did have one of the Turbo Jet Vacs so they did get some of the new wave 4 there. Haven't check the Rankin Hwy location yet so might check tonight for it, but I have a feeling its gonna be a couple more days till they start showing up down here in Texas

#134 Posted: 19:39:11 13/03/2014
I checked out the Walmart in Parma, OH (Parmatown one). They had about 8 Star Strikes. All of them were in a separate display box in the main aisle across from the electronics.

there was also some easter guys on the side of it!

I tried a few of them, one of them is still on the Disney Infinity portal lol

Yup. Don't have to wait behind anyone, don't have to worry about cashiers tossing a figure into the bag and bumping it. I for one, welcome our new robot overlords lol
(actually at this time all the lines were full with people and only a few were over at the new self checkout thing they fixed up so now there's like 8 self checkout terminals.

I always preferred the self checkout lane as well. Unfortunately all of the WalMarts near me got rid of them. They seemed to break all the time. Not sure if they got rid of them due to the IQ of the average WalMart patron being too low to use them or the IQ of the average WalMart employee being too low to maintain them. I assume its a healthy combination of the two.

Oddly enough, the WalMart website doesn't seem to have a listing available for Enchanted Star Strike.
I remember they did pre-orders and/or ship-to-store orders last year for Molten Hot Dog, right around this time of year in 2013.

It was a little before that, in early February 2013. I remember the post about the pre-order, and all the people that got their orders cancelled for ordering more than one. I distinctly remember that scalper goldbashmaster boasting about ordering 24 to "cover his pre-orders on EBay", then suddenly going silent as they blanked out his order.

They started showing up in store in mid-late February, I got mine the day TRU got in Ninjini.

When did you go to the Walmart in Princeton and find Scratch? I was there on Wednesday night and they didn't have any of wave 4 (which is a good thing since it reinforces my commitment to wait for a sale before I buy wave 4...can't believe everybody is running out and paying regular prices for wave 4...I haven't touched my Skylanders game in several weeks).

I went there yesterday, 3/13, around 9:30 A.M. I was searching the racks for ESS and there was one Scratch behind two Skylanders. I didn't see any of the other Wave 4 ones there.
