Skylanders Light & Dark Pack Discontinued? (CONFIRMED FALSE) [CLOSED]

#1 Posted: 22:29:25 16/01/2015 | Topic Creator
I went to Gamestop and asked the guy if they had any Light & Dark Adventure Packs. He said that they're being discontinued. Wtf does that mean they're stopping production?! I'm panicking about this. I don't have them yet. Did I just misinterpret it or are the stocks of them being stopped for good?


UPDATE

Hey guys, if you don't already have the light and dark expansion packs, I would get them now from amazon.com, because I have heard news from Wal-Mart, Target, and Gamestop that they have been discontinued. Order fast!

Nope it's just another idiot who doesn't know what he is talking about. Just go to TRU, they will almost certainly have them there.

It's just another employee trying to spread rumors. Why would they discontinue two packs that are almost essential to beat the game with?

It could be possible they're discontinuing the packs and gonig to release singles of the trap masters and traps.

I DOUBT IT.

But might be the case.


ALOT of people thought the marth + other amiibos were being discontinued but during the nintendo direct they announced they'll be put in other waves closer to their franchises other releases so this could be the case too...

Orrrrr he's tired of getting asked and wants you to stop calling.

True, but if they decided to discontinue this then I suspect the series is cancelled. Why discontinue something that's at least something like 5-10% of the game and is selling well. This is another clueless Gamestop employee mishap.

Same with major retail stores like Target, Walmart or even TRU.
I've helped at the TRU & GameStop in Fullerton with customers wondering about Infinity & Skylanders, and I know more than the employees that work there. And I don't even work at either of these places.
As for the packs, I saw 3 of each at a WalMart on the multi-level shelves, under some older Skylanders items on clearance, not on the racks with the other figures & packs

It's dumb threads like this which make scalpers go about after these more aggressively. I take what employees say to me with a grain of salt. Most people on this fan forum who regularly keep up to date with threads are more knowledgeable than store employees. We have toy store owners posting here giving us the heads up when things like the 8 pack of traps are discontinued for ordering...they're a more reliable resource.

Maybe in a bizarro world or alternate backwards universe, you'll hear at a Activision meeting "we just introduced 2 new elements in packs at a jacked up price of $30 and they're flying off the shelves...stores can't even keep them in stock...so let's discontinue them!" Makes no sense.

I wouldn't worry about them being discontinued . They are probably one of the best selling skylanders toys and there's no way they would pass up that easy profit. main reason some people are struggling to find them is because they are INCREDIBLY popular. I've literally seen giant shelves of them disappear in a few days .

These are NOT discontinued, and they will not be discontinued for a long time.


In fact, I just came back from my local Target. They had 5 Light Packs and one Dark Pack.

That guy at gamestop could have told you that as he doesn't want you or customers to buy any. Some gamestop employees are scalpers so if they have stock of a rare item, they'll buy it and sell it later on ebay for a highly inflated price.
kaosmumishot Emerald Sparx Gems: 3271
#23 Posted: 01:05:37 19/01/2015
At the local EB Games (Australian version of Gamestop) they often order limited stock of some items with no intention of getting more in. Once they are sold they are sold and you need to look elsewhere. Not sure if this is true for all EB Games stores but it is for my local one.

Often items that you can't buy in store are still available to order from their website for a period of time, but it's possible that EB Games stores would run out of some stock and never restock it. And it's possible that this will happen here with the light and dark packs. But there's a big difference between not stocking it and discontinued.

I called Target today and they too said both packs are discontinued. However, they do still have them in stock at regular price.

I have found them all day at targets and walmarts so I don't think they are discontinued. Maybe just be a Target thing because they never carry stock long on the shelf its marked down and then gone. They are out there people.

There is still a great demand for these, so Activision will be upsetting fans with this nonsense if this is true. I can imagine them releasing individual packs with Light and Dark Trapmasters and also single light and dark traps, but people will bail on the franchise if they don't make the actual midnight museum and sunscraper spire pieces available to fans in order to unlock both expansion levels. Can somebody who owns or manages a toy/gaming store confirm or deny these rumors? Seeing as both are in stock at Amazon and have been in stock for a majority of the day, they must have gotten hundreds if not thousands of these in recently.

#31 Posted: 00:21:40 22/01/2015
I have both, but I hope everyone gets one. I still don't get why, though.

Too strange to be true.

Amazon has Dark Packs (and also Light ones... But they cost almost 60€...), so, I'm still not convinced.

So it looks like I should go and buy a couple of extra given that they 'might' become rare. Although personally I would prefer to see them not to be discontinued.

I can't imagine that this is true. I know I ordered some light and dark packs from Activision a couple of days ago and they didn't say anything about discontinuing them then. Worst case scenerio, I could see them "discontinue" the current version of the expansion pack and release a different version that is cheaper with the expansion piece, Spotlight/Blackout, and a different light/dark trap. They have been changing up the trap multi-packs every wave and discontinuing the former wave's SKU each time they change, so if they are changing anything that is probably it.

There HAS to be some way for them to sell the Sunscraper Spire and Midnight Museum packs, and I can't see them doing that as individual pieces.
OnionCakes Yellow Sparx Gems: 1810
#37 Posted: 16:51:19 22/01/2015
Well the Spire and Museum are side quests/dlc. They may not rerelease them at all and just release singles of the trap and figures.

That's so true, some employees have little or no knowledge of the toys-to-life franchise so they could be getting confused with the marth amiibo or something like that, and to be honest some (no all) are quite lazy and won't bother to double check.

Also, it's what the Target Employees PDA said so it's not their knowledge at all, it's the Target company. (Not sure if the PDA has store specific info however)
Their PDA said the same thing it did with Granite Crusher and Jade Flashwing and they never came back so maybe it's a glitch, maybe not, but it wasn't an employees word at all, it was their PDA device.

Yeah, I never really checked Wal-Mart, but I assume they're discontinued there too because they don't show up on the website anymore.

I was told by Toys r Us, Walmart and 2 different Targets that they are discontinued. Target had actually pulled them off the shelf and put them in the back room which is how I FINALLY got my hands on them. My guess is that this particular pack is discontinued so they can bring out individually packaged pieces. I just can't believe they are doing it so soon!!! Or maybe production is is far behind that they are temporarily discontinuing them.

Every gamestop i have been to has said the packs have been discontinued.

Yeah, exactly. Just because stores still have them doesn't mean they are still being manufactured.

Although like most, I'd say it's pretty weird if they stopped making them already.

i talked to 10 gamestops and they all said it have been discontinued. i was just lucky to get the only two they had left in one of the shops, the rest didnt have them. so if you want the dark and light adventure packs i suggest getting them from amazon or whatever you prefer to buy from fast, before they go empty. the scalpers are gonna ebay these at idiot prices, when they find out the dark and light adventure packs have been discontinued.
