The Springtime Trigger Happy looks nice. I probably won't get it though, not that much into collecting right now to be buying different versions of figures.

Quote: melvimbe
So my question is, are there going to be regular edition fryno and punk shock? Just wondering if the box itself is going to be a collectors item. I was guess that's the case.

Next question, is this going to be a best buy exclusive? Maybe other stores get regular boxed fryno and punk shock?



I would think that would be the case. I mean, their packaging says "Spring Edition", and it's obviously not referring to the characters since they look normal, so it's probably referring to the packaging itself being a spring edition. I'd think eventually they'll start putting them in regular boxes, because y'know, it can't be spring forever smilie The packaging being Best Buy-exclusive is also likely, though there's been no mention of that yet, so.

I have a feeling with all three missing that any orders that were pre orders will be refunded or not fulfilled at this time. Best buy especially back from black friday sales is notorious for it. So those that did pre order should look into that. There will probably be many getting emails of cancellations very soon

Maybe this was a test from Best Buy to see how many figures will be bought when they come out. I can't wait to get all of them. I am glad I ordered them last night at 1:00am when it was available. If it gets canceled then it does. WE will see what happens.

I was still hoping to reserve some spring time trigger happys so I guess I'm hoping that they postpone the whole pre orders which I have a feeling they might or end up opening up more later close to the date. I think on whoever said it was a mistake on their end to put them up so soon.

Most large retailer inventory have some kind of MRP ( minimum reorder point ) system set up.... if a certain value exceeds it...the system puts in an order to restock. In this case, what i would assume would logically take place would be a MRP set to a certain number then go to 0. Meaning all preorder stock gone, not neccessarily a "bail out " for refunding.

i agree. theyve gone the extra distance to package it cool...and not being exclusives as far as i know....why not keep these and grab standards when released.

Completely different situation. When that happened they put up stock and sold more than they would have available to ship prior to Christmas. That's a big deal because those are holiday sales intended for Christmas presents that result in people having to re-shop or not have things for their loved ones. They also waited until the very last minute to cancel those orders, leaving people unable to find some of the items at the last minute elsewhere.

Worst case, this is an item listing that popped up early. They most likely got a lot of orders so they shut it down until they can confirm and get closer to the date. They take the item out of view so that you don't have people pulling it up and cannot pre-order it. They won't cancel orders they will most likely be able to fulfill. The only problem that arises is if they sell more than they will get, which is probably why they shut it down until they get final numbers. I also have a feeling they were hit with a ton of multiple orders, pre-orders with those images are already popping up on EBay - scalpers go nuts over these kinda of things, despite being a clear violation of their 30 day delivery pre-order rules.

Agreed. Don't panic or get anxious about these characters at this time. They're clearly intended to be marketed as Easter basket gifts, and Easter is many weeks away still. There will be plenty more opportunity to acquire these Skylanders as Easter gets closer.

Is anyone else like me and only leaves the non in-game variants in the package. If so, do you plan to get two of each?

The easter wave has literally nothing to do with non in game variants.

Expect to see Springtime Trigger Happy hit virtually all retailers at the same time, similar to
Jolly Bumble Blast. For sure by April 6th, but possibly March 30th.

They still haven't cancelled my order as of this moment. Here's hoping they don't.

However, I am hoping they release these characters in their normal packaging, so these Skylanders won't look out of place with the other newlanders on my wall.

Fryno and Punk Shock should definitely have their own blisters. I think it'd be super weird to have them in the egg ones in like, July.
Triggs I feel may just be only in this blister. Although it begs the question of if other countries will also get them in egg shaped blisters too.

Agreed. Aside from Enchanted Star Strike releasing unannounced, this is a really long dry spell for the franchise.

I think they are trying to let the shelves clear of the mass of 3rd and 4th reposes of characters no one wants. That's what I see when I go to the stores, lots of untouched three packs and reposes. Swappers and Newlanders appear to be moving just fine.

Maybe Activision is thinking that players will want the reposed characters the same amount that they want the new characters. Personally, I skip ALL reposed figures.

My local targets singles are tons of scorp and riptide. They are both at flashwing levels. Between them i see a few reposes of wave 1 and 2. Swappers are wave 3.

It is to appease new players and give them a chance to get some of the older characters. I started at swap force and I love the triple packs they give me some of the older non variant characters.
