I was just on Targets website and noticed they had Nitro Freeze Blade and Nitro Magna Charge(single) on the website for pre-order with a release date set as 3/23/14. You can only pre-order 1 of each.

Freeze Blade

http://www.target.com/p/skylan...ders+swap+force
Magna Charge

EDIT:
The pre-order option is no longer available but they are still on Target's website with an expected release date of 3/23/14

Really? I was just on the website and they had the option to pre-order. I actually ordered both. They can't be gone that quick, that's crazy!!

There's no Add to cart button, so no pre-ordering.

Just went back on their site and your 100% right. No more pre-order option. I wonder why? That's such a tease. Well at least everyone will know when they're expected in the stores. Maybe I can edit the thread name so no one gets their hopes up.

Thanks for the update. Interesting date. That's about 2 weeks before the Easter release, and probably 2 to 3 weeks after the jade fire kraken release. Would it make sense for then for there to be a release in about a week to keep with a 2 week release schedule?

Maybe because his Nitro variant is coming out... does that mean regular Freeze Blade will release at the same time?

Or will it be like Stealth Elf where her legendary variant got released before her regular series 2 toy.

Awesome news.

Love the look of the Freeze Blade figure -- also, my son will be excited to be able to pick up Nitro Magna Charge w/o having to get a duplicate of another swapper.

Your welcome. And I've read that the Easter release was April 6th but I never saw a date for Jade Fire Kraken. I've heard it being speculated as St. Patricks Day but nothing definite. Did you hear another date or have any other info?

Anyone have a pic of just the figure alone without the packaging? Be cool to compare the regular and nitro versions side-by-side now that it has been revealed.

I'm kind of glad and kind of bummed. We normally only get the variant version of a character, if we can. I was going to hold off on getting Nitro Charge to get Nitro Magna Charge, but when my son decided he wanted him, I was already over getting Nitro because I didn't want to buy the 2 packs. Now I have to decide if we want to get Nitro or not. With us deciding not to spend as much on Skylanders, this time, we probably won't. But I'm glad it's available as a single for everyone else who wants him.

Nice way to maximize purchases...make people think you can only get Nitro Magna in a double and then switchero.

RIP GhostRoaster. He's reanimated as TakeYourLemons but occasionally is resurrected from the beyond when needed.

No Confirmation on Jade Fire Kraken. I would assume just more random speculation.

Totally unimpressed at the single Nitro Charge. I don't know who thought packaging it with figures readily available in the 3DS pack was a brilliant idea. Guess the stock wasn't flying off too fast after all.

Anyways, I'm definitely getting Nitro Freeze Blade the day of release.

They were still hard to find, but probably mostly because Target sucks at restocking. I think they had this planned all along.

Glad target.com released the info.
The date is correct.
He also is being touted as the fastest character in the game.

No idea when regular Freeze Blade is released, but I would be surprised if Activision doesn't release the regular version with toys r us around the same time. If not, it would give Target a huge advantage in having a varient of a character that isn't available yet.
Pretty sure that's never been done before (varient before the standard character).

Well with the exception of lightcores, they did have Legendary Stealth Elf just barely before the regular S2 Stealth Elf and then there was Legendary lightcore Chill before the regular Lightcore Chill. Overall I'd have to say that the Nitro Skylanders may truly be the biggest bad taste variants in the line thus far for the missing regular version of Freeze Blade and the more annoying Nitro Magna Charge 2 pack people bought.

Wow, singles for both of them? That's pretty cool, although a bit upsetting for me since I already got Nitro Magna/Free Ranger and only planned to get Free Ranger (and Rattle Shake) from the 3DS version lawl.

Ah well, still I'm glad that they're only singles. I didn't want to have to have another character in the box and not be able to use it.

I am speculating on the JFK release date, hence the word 'probably'.

Oh I know this very well, I jumped at a chance when I saw the two pack was available but others were like "meh, I see them all the time".

Whatever, bitterness aside, Nitro Blade looks wonderful.

With this confirmation, we still have Jade Fire Kraken, Enchanted Star Strike, Kick-off Countdown, and I'm not sure if Springtime Trigger Happy had an exact date? Were there any others I missed on the varients? And yes, Target will likely have these up first before they bring in the regular version. Even if you don't like that strategy, you have to admit it makes sense. It would be pretty silly to get both in at the same time if you chance making one a shelf warmer. Just the other day I met someone buying Skylanders for Swap Force, and they needed an undead type and a giant. They hadn't bought them all, just what they needed/wanted. Most parents just aren't going to shell out the money to get both versions at the same time, even if they're noticeably different. So if they've got an exclusive varient, they're gonna prioritize that one! Oh well, I know I'm getting both when they come out. I'm a sucker for in-game varients....

[User Posted Image] Hopefully the image worked and you can see Freeze Blade. Another member posted a close up of Nitro Freeze Blade so you can compare. The Nitro version looks more silverish wearing a gold outfit vs gray wearing black.

He looks wonderful. I must say all of the variants have looked better than their normal counterparts for me.
