Walmart seems to always start in California then move east. It must have something to do with their shipping methods. It usually takes a week or two to sweep across the country, depending on if they drop ship or send it on their trucks.

Good news, although this presents a dilemma for me (at least for Fryno) - given we open all of ours. Wait for the cool Easter packaging, or pick it up sooner and have it out of the way. It is going to be an Easter gift regardless. First World Problems ...

Either sold out before this person found it or the Easter "wave" is more of a Wave 4.5 that will overlap contents. Punk might be in smaller quantities in the cases than the other new ones. I'd lean more towards Wave 4.5, given I think Punk Shock is probably less desirable than Scratch. The female figures don't seem to generate as much excitement in the target audience.

AW, we didn't get Fryno first smilie. Well there's always Punk Shock tomorrow.

So when will these be in the UK? When will UK get any wave first?

Grap the regular if you see it, hold it. If you find the easter buy it and return the regular. This way at least you have your gifts for Easter, thou by april 20th this stuff maybe common smilie

Didn't they mention they were going to stagger releases over the restof the year? I'd say that our last wave will probably have multiple parts.

They have kind of done a core only and then a swap only release for wave three. Might see the same for wave 4. What surprises me is Walmart releasing these before releasing the Enchanted Star Strike in the States. Would think they would get less purchases now. If you give a choice which to buy they might not sell as many. If there is only one then most likely you can talk your parents into it. Now that there is another 4 or 5 available you have to try and get your parent to allow more of them. probably gonna get a you can have 3 or 4 and get the rest later deal.

Im on the east coast, PA to be exact. Traditionally it seems that Toys r Us usually gets them first albiet not many, but it seems like they've always had first? Do you all think itll be like that again or will they just put them out everywhere?

Can confirm these guys are in parts of the East Bay Area in CA. Picked up all but Hot Dog at the location in San Leandro, and saw them in Union City as well. Was gonna post a pic in-store, but it'd look exactly like the one Donatron posted.

This is great news, but it still begs an explanation for one thing, Where is smilie? This is still surprising to see that even Scratch has some impressive aesthetics going on with her like her semi translucent wings and those translucent claws and eyes that almost looks like she could have had light piping.

No, Wave 4 is not Walmart exclusive ... or even a "we get it first thing". They would advertise that if it were.

Unless a deal is made with a retailer, Walmart will frequently get first sightings all things being equal. Activision is in California, Walmart has a warehouse out of California, so they tend to arrive at those locations first. Gamestop distributes out of Texas/Oklahoma (I forget which). Target comes from the southeast. Toys R Us is up north as I recall.

Unless they are drop shipped for something special directly to the store, the cases go to the warehouses, then get shipped to the stores. It's just a matter of logistics.

Going from California -> California -> west coast states will obviously be quickest. They will show up at Walmarts moving west to east over the next two weeks. Gamestop will probably start to get them next, early next week (next closest main distribution site to California). Target last. TRU, if I were to bet, will do a HTA and do all stores at the same time late next week, if not they will show up randomly there over the next couple weeks, maybe even drop shipped with no fanfare.

In a standard Skylanders Wave, where no store has a deal set up (this wave is pretty small, after all - not to mention they have some other special things coming up soon) you can almost always count on west coast Walmarts getting them first. I have a feeling the retailers are more worried about deals on exclusives and Easter figures to mess around buying special favors on a regular wave assortment of singles this late in the game.

That's why I like it when TRU gets them first, at least they are predictable. My Walmart probably won't even put them out for a couple weeks after they arrive.

For anyone interested, you'll find 2 of each of these 4 available at the Walmart in Huntington Beach, CA. The cross-streets are Beach & Talbert. Check the Customers Service station or the Electronics section...

This is exciting, but it'll probably be a while before I see them in Canada. Shelves are not just getting stink bomb, spy rise and rubble rouser. and i only ever saw one shipment of phantom cynder, prism break etc, and i missed out on whirlwind. Ive never had to resort to ebay, but im getting worried that i may have to soon.
