Toys are Us now has buy one get THREE free!!! Excluding Imaginators.



Their website really got hammered. I was able to get four Eon's Elites for only $24 shipped with tax ($6 each) which is worth it. I'll probably check the store tomorrow, although they really didn't have much I wanted in older Skylanders recently I may still find something like the rest of the Elites. Aside from what I bought today, I only had Stealth Elf, so it's worth getting the rest as they are some of the few older Skylanders that can actually hold their own in Imaginators.

-edit-
I saw that they closed at 9 today, so I went over for a peek. Amazingly their selection was almost identical to the website selection. I was hoping to pick up lots of SuperChargers on the SuperCheap, but I really didn't need a few dozen Stormblades. And they had less Eon Elites to pick from than on their website. Oh well!

Got my 4 Elites in record time! Arrived in only TWO days with their free shipping. Sent from Ohio to NY. They were a bit loosely packed in the box, but no damage occurred. Very happy! Just wish they had this sale when there was more of a SC selection. I didn't buy most of those because I was waiting for a great sale like this one. LOL Oh well!

IDK if this counts as a sale, TRU changed all their pre-Imaginator single characters and vehicles to 9.99, excluding lightcore Hex.
The bad news is that the SSA and Giants went way up, the good news is even trap masters and eon's elites are now 10.

Combined with the buy one get two sale, it's a little over 3 bucks each.

So, funny story. I went to TRU today to look and I found Egg Bomber Air Strike. I asked, before trying to buy it, if they had Grave Clobber and/or Pain Yatta in the back. She said they were street dated, but that Air Strike wasnt. But then she tried to sell it and it was indeed street dated after all. But then on my way out I spot a few Grave Clobbers out, and bring one to the front to get it. Turns out it wasn't street dated like the woman said.

Tl;dr: Bull**** street date lies and I got Grave Clobber.

And he is a powerhouse, he is so much fun to use.

I suspect that some of the wrong boxes had the street date stickers on them to confuse employees. I had a similar experience, but it could just be people looking at the boxes and getting mixed up which ones are which. Either way, not all stores get the same things in first so there's probably more opportunities to find them.

The half off on Crash deal is only with purchase of Imaginators starter pack (which I presume will also include the Switch version when it's out)

I was there hunting for dark crystals. No luck. But I noticed they only had 2 HB Flare Wolf and 1 Pain Yatta left. None of wave 4 are at Target or Gamestop. ...pretty scarce, get 'em while you can.

All older Skylanders were $5 at TRU. It was Saturday, sorry I didn't post earlier. It's probably going on through this coming Saturday. If I remember correctly, it included everything before Imaginators.

Note: It's been surprising to see a lot of Trap Team figures and traps there.

(BTW, thanks for not yelling about double posts. I do know how to edit, but I start new post when there's a new sale.)

I'm honestly getting annoyed at the method Toys R Us is using to clear out their warehouse inventory. I skipped Trap Team originally, and have recently purchased it, and started collecting figures. At times, the deals Toys R Us has been offering on have been really good, BUT...

Toys R Us apparently has a bunch of trap masters (and by the look of it, SF and SC stuff) hanging out at a bunch of their warehouses, and they're releasing blocks of them at a time to their website. It seems like their tactic is to bring all old skylanders up to "full" price of $10 - they won't go any higher than that for older figures anymore), then release some of their inventory. Then, after a few days, they'll drop the price to $5, then back up to $10, but on a B1G2 deal, then finally just stick the price at $3 (like the one that just ended yesterday). But, they have inventory of a bunch of rare-ish ones, so even $5 is a more than decent deal, except if there's only one you're missing in that particular inventory release, because you're paying more for shipping than for the figure since it's all online, and there's almost no inventory at stores.


I had four trap masters left to purchase, and in the past couple of weeks they'd all come into and out of stock online at least once, so I put all of them in my cart at higher prices and just waited. Monday's $3 deal came around, and three of the four were still in stock online. Greaaat. So I broke down and bought those three, not knowing if TRU had any more of the last one (Krypt King), or when they'd release them if they did.

Sure enough, I check the site today, and whaddayaknow, the price is back up to $10, aaaaaand they released a big block of inventory, including Krypt King. Greeeaaaaat. Now, the cheapest I can find it for on ebay is something like $17, so it's about the same price as I'd currently get from TRU after shipping, but the game I'm now playing is whether it goes back out of stock again before the price drops. Apparently it's rare enough that buying new in box is costly (Nitro is cheaper than standard - weird. What's that about?), so I'm betting online sellers are buying a bunch of them up from TRU, even at the higher price. Will I miss out again?

Grr.

But, the good news is, if you're filling out your older collections, just check back in with TRU every couple days or so. If the last two weeks have been any indication, prices will be back down to $3 soon.

Didn't have long to wait.

Toys R Us is having a $10 B1G3 sale for all non-Imaginators, online and in-store (though, creation crystals are currently priced a $7, down from $10, all other Inaginators gear normal price). Apparently the sale is Friday and Saturday.

Online shows that the B1G3 figures aren't available for in-store pickup, and I just assumed that meant they didn't have any stock in stores, which doesn't make much difference to me, since I'm about an hour out of town, and rarely get in to the store. Except that online LIES to us! I was in town for some errands, so I stopped by, and they had ALL of the Trap Masters I'd already bought online the past couple weeks. Grr. The shipping alone has almost doubled what I could have paid. Oh well.

Didn't have Krypt King, though, so I'm still looking for an inexpensive option for him.

I found a lot with 8 senseis - Tri-Tip, Golden Queen, Krankcase, King Pen, Tae Kwon Crow, Aurora, and Buckshot - as well as a fire crystal, for $65. I can get the Imaginators disc for $10 at gamestop. Is that a good start, and worth $75?

Honestly, looking through past "favorites" imaginator threads, it doesn't seem like any of the ones listed are forum favorites. Better to wait a few months for some starter deals and bogos?

#375 Posted: 22:51:20 28/05/2017
Toys R Us is doing a Buy one get FOUR free for any non-Imaginator figures.

It looks like they're mostly out of stock online, but in-store (ymmv obv) there are still quite a few. If you want to round out your Trap Masters collection, that's what they've got the most of. I wish the one nearest me had more TT cores. Only had one or two.

I'm kicking myself for buying all my Trap Masters online within the last month when they were 5 bucks. At this pricepoint, I could probably recoup 20 bucks just by returning and repurchasing.
zookinator Emerald Sparx Gems: 3261
#376 Posted: 00:34:04 29/05/2017
@pjc613
I'd say the lot is worth your money, considering that a full-blown Starter Pack costs as much as you could buy it for. I certainly wouldn't have minded such a deal, if I had a need for those figures. To put it into perspective, getting all those at full price would put you at $150. Double the current price. Sound nice?
Also, all of those characters are good and effective in their own right, its just that their designs are a bit...boring, I guess? The point is, just because they aren't on peoples' favorites lists, doesn't mean they aren't good. I quite like Krankcase with his Hat-Bots, even if I haven't used them as much. I can agree that there are some cooler characters, but just take your time in getting them; sales will come soon enough, and despite me coming several months late, I've had little issue in getting most of the characters (Kaos, Chain Reaction and the Dark Senseis may be a different case, but they'll turn up again I'm sure.)


On to my own purchases. Last week I bought good ole Grave Clobber, Pain-Yatta, and Chopscotch, and they'll finally be arriving Wednesday. I've heard good things about all of them, as I did for the other Senseis. We don't seem to have any weaklings this year, do we?

Hey zookinator, thanks for the response. Yeah, totally pulled the trigger on it. The funny part was that I get the feeling the guy was selling it for a friend or something, because he included a couple of disney infinity marvel characters in the original listing. I contacted him and asked him if he was willing to sell just the 8 skylander characters for $50, and he didn't really know what I was talking about. I explained to him which ones were which, and he said sure, and that he'd repost the lot. In his original listing he also listed the game and portal as well, but for xbox, so neither would work for me. I told him he'd probably get a decent amount for the game and portal if he listed them separately. Nice dude. Reposted just the Skylanders for $45!

5 bucks each for any senseis is definitely worth it!
Okaps Emerald Sparx Gems: 4608
#378 Posted: 07:51:12 29/05/2017
If Lightcore Hex qualifies for the promo (not sure if her low price is an exclusion), that would make it possible to get 5 for approximately $.10 each.

I got in on this last night and ordered myself a Short Cut and Thunderbolt plus a few other oddballs. They go out of stock fast and then they magically find more a couple weeks later, which is annoying. I still need an Enigma which keeps popping in and out of stock.

WOW! Thank you Obidawsn! I ordered all the ones I needed online, which was 12 Sensei, 2 Crystals (just trying to get one of each element, don't care which mold they send me) and a blind bag chest for kicks.

I'm assuming they are this price in store too but it's just easier to pay the $5.99 shipping to get every single one I needed at once instead of going all over the place to get the 12 Sensei I needed.

Now I only need Ro-bo and a Chompy Mage to fill out my collection! And that whatever Hood Sickle variant from Best Buy but that's very low priority as variants are give or take with me.

You know, with Imaginators at blow out prices, I'm wondering if I should get Ro-bo from the UK...

Last minute, but I noticed that there is a Trap Team full Light/Dark set with a couple hours left on ebay, with all four characters, both levels, and 4 different traps.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Skylan...ot/292274716710

Full disclosure, this is NOT my sale, and I don't know the lady personally, but I have bought from her in the past, and she's very honest and gracious. So if you're looking for a Light/Dark set for a good price, now's as good an opportunity as any you'll get.

My Target has a nice, new display for the gaming aisle. They kept a good bit of real estate for Imaginators. And I see a Tidepool and 3 dark crystals.
Crystals are now $7.49 and all starter packs except for the Switch one are $49.99.

At TRU: all old figures are$9.99, and Senseis are 25 percent off. 3 LIM's left.
