Found mine today in Normal, IL.

On a side note though, a lot of the figures had really bad paint jobs. The white had large splotches of black all over the figure.

OK, when is she coming to the website because I can't be a**ed to trek on down for like roughly an hour to "go see" if she's still on the shelves.

My guess is that the kiosk is out in certain stores now. If your Wal Mart has a McDonalds, they are more likely to put out kiosk closer to March 28. Around that time McDonalds Will be handing out mini posters of enchanted star strike to customers that purchase happy meals. There are limited amounts of these posters, 450 per store. (These posters will ONLY be in McDonald's in Wal Mart, regular McDonald's will not have these.)

McDonalds will be doing skylander happy meals March 28-April 24. Some stores may be holding back these toys until that time because of this promotion. There are also coupons in the Happy Meal for $10 off the game. One of the toys is a chompy. That will be a cool addition.

She is around and honestly, isn't moving. I figured the small number my store got would mean they go fast, but no. I don't think they have sold one since I found them on Sunday.

On the other hand, they DID sell out ridiculously fast on the Frozen Bluray+Elsa Infinity Gift Set. Like immediately after getting put out, talked to an employee and it wasn't just one person, people just all bought it this morning. I wanted that since my youngest son loves Infinity, but ended up just getting the movie. Saved some money and he doesn't really play the girl figures anyways. As a matter of fact, he doesn't play much other than Dash and Buzz. I got him the Phineas and Perry set from Gamestop for his birthday and he loved it, we go upstairs so he can play the game and he wanted to play as .... Dash. Sigh.

That's comforting to hear. I've been running around looking for her at every Walmart within driving distance of me for days now, and still no sign of her or the Easter display at any of them yet! If she's not moving, at least that means I've got a pretty good chance of still grabbing her even if I'm a day or two late.

Based on how many piles of Enchanted Hoot Loops I still see at every Walmart, I'm not really that surprised that she isn't moving, especially considering how long the normal Star Strike has been out already, but still, it's nice to hear some confirmation of this theory.

It's not just that, I still also find Enchanted Hoot Loops (they had them), Jolly Bumble Blasts, Metal Sprockets, all four Legendaries and even Nitro Magna Charge all the time. People are just not that into anything other than the new, regular version figures. I hope Activision/TfB is paying attention.

I don't know if it's people not being "into" the variants this time around or there's just an adequate supply finally. When the variants for Giants hit, if you didn't get one the day of release you weren't going to get one at all in my area. I had to eBay a Polar Whirlwind.

I don't mind variants, but I think they shouldn't make multiple variants of the same figure. Spread the love if you're going to do it, IMO.

Most stores aren't getting many, maybe 8 with their Easter display (I'm sure they will probably get more). Gamestop locations each got about a dozen Polar Whirlwinds and sold out that day in almost all locations and online. It's not just supply.

Compare versus ANY variant last year, Scarlet Ninjini disappeared fast, so did Jade Flashwing, the Legendaries and Granite Crusher. I agree they are doing great with supply on the regular figures (especially the recent swappers), but the variants aren't really coming out in greater numbers than last year. Many of the variants have been available since Day 1 and can still be found easily. And reposes are clogging the shelves (they seem to have learned lately, as reposes are a much smaller portion of new waves). People are tired of re-buying the same figures over and over.

#216 Posted: 18:45:08 18/03/2014
I am mostly a fan who buys the variants instead of the original but they I believe they should introduce variants along with the original figure.

Or, heck, have the variant play slightly different (even just one move difference, the soul gem if you will) to the the original figure (like with how Dark Spyro in the 3DS SA played different to regular Spyro).

Finally found mine in Amherst, NY. They had 10 on display. While I really like the look of her, I feel they really missed the boat by only having her hood color change.
defpally Emerald Sparx Gems: 4009
#222 Posted: 14:06:15 19/03/2014
Yes, the paint jobs on her is, in general, very iffy. The white color change paint must be difficult to do very fine edges, the problems mostly lie around the edges of where is covers the figure.

I didn't think the ones I saw were particularly badly painted. I noticed issues with a couple right away, but I was able to find 2 that easily pass my standards.

After a week of searching, I finally found one! And I got lucky too, it was the last one!

Now that I have her in hand, I have to admit, I too am disappointed by the paint. The lines all seem to be fine, but it doesn't make any sense to me as to why the only painted her hood with the color changing paint. It would have made more sense to do her fans instead at least, if not both parts...

The minute you decide to understand that they aren't motivated by the fans, but the money...then all becomes clear.

Good to see there's someone else local to me on here. :-D I basically had to let them know a couple of days ago to put her out. I went in looking for wave 4, asked them to check in back (forgetting about ELCSS) and ended up having the people in electronics bring out one of everything in the back, including ELCSS. Glad they actually went back and put out the rest of the stock!

Yep, the mistake people are making is not looking in the right place. They are all over, and this is just the initial shipment. I've seen them in the Skylanders section, more often in the new Easter display (all stores should have this) and in the toy section. Check all three at your stores. And they aren't selling much at all, they have been in both the stores I've been by all week long, even the ones pegged with the Skylanders (I could understand them being missed in the display or toy section). Do not buy these from EBay unless your Walmart is incredibly far away - and even then it'll probably eventually pop up online.

I found enchanted star strike at more than one Wal-Mart in Tampa, FL. They were not on the regular shelves, but they were in the floor displays between the aisles. It has the Easter logo on the side but I could not find any Easter figures. I found all of the other Wave 4 figures at various Wal-Mart and Best Buy stores in Tampa today. Struck out at Target. Nothing new there. Did not feel like driving 30 minutes to TRU this time!

Picked up ESS at Walmart in Arbutus, MD at 4:00am EST. Funny thing is I looked on the pegs and saw nothing new. Did a 360 and saw a brown cardboard box about 4.5 ft tall. Me being the curious person I am I decided to open the box. Well what do we have here? The spring display!! So I took it upon myself to grab one ESS and walk to the register to check out. Thought to myself after checking out that I should go back and see if any of the other new figures are there too. No such luck, but one employee came by and asked me if I needed help. I said" no I already helped myself". She asked me if I unboxed the display and I said YES!! She proceeds to tell me I can't do that and that the employee that is setting that display up is on another shift(as if it needed anything more than to be removed from the cardboard shipping box to be "set up":-<. I said ok I will remember that for next time and told her that the employees at this Walmart are a bunch of turds then I walked away with my sons new ESS. Lol. For those in this area and still looking for ESS there were plenty left when I got mine since I was first so hurry to get yours!

I didn't have luck at several of the Walmarts around Dallas, TX. I finally found one at Mesquite and there were still a handful left.

I travel around the area a bit for work, so here are a list of the ones that did not have them within the last week: North Dallas near MicroCenter, Forest Lane, Garland off of 635, Forney, Seagoville, Dallas off Skillman@NW Highway, Denton @ University, Denton @ 288, and Hickory Creek.
