If this really is the case... this is quite literally the stupidest thing activision's marketing board has done



Well think about it - the Light and Dark packs might cost a lot for them to produce. They might not have all the materials at the moment to make them. Plus, another reason they're being discontinued possibly is because they could be getting a lot of $ from Amazon and eBay sales.

EDIT: Also, people are buying them so fast that they can't keep up with it, so they might be waiting a couple of weeks for them to produce many more, then they will send stocks of them out again.

They are not canceled...and no there is no additional hidden cost preventing them from producing them. Much of it I think has to do with inventory season.

I just have one question (I was gonna make a topic but this seems easier)

So Wave 4 will have Knight Mare & Knight Light figure singles.

I have dark, but not light pack.

1. Will the light hawk trap be available?
2. Will the Sunscraper Spire level itself be available?

Thanks in advance!

the stuff that they sell in the adventure packs dont get sold separately, only thing sold separately will be the figurine if it get a legendary variant. so if you want the adventure packs buy them when you see them, because later it can be very difficult to get.

I believe that they are, check your local stores that sell Skylanders and ask them about their stocks on the Light & Dark Expansion Packs.

Both Knight Light and Knight Mare will be available in singles, as a part of Wave 4, according to myskylanders.de.

Wrong. Wind-Up and Pop Thorn were released as single figures in the US (granted, months after the APs released). While they're the only characters that's happened with, they also happen to be most recent, besides those from TT (and even then, Blades is in a triple pack, which could possibly imply that they plan to release him in a single at some point).

Both packs have been on sale quite a bit on Amazon this past week and for hours at a time. I really don't have any pity for those who complain they don't have these in a few weeks if the supply does happen to dry up. FYI - many retail stores still have supply of these regardless of what info has been thrown out there by employees on these possibly being discontinued.

yes i meant the magic items, adventure pieces.. i referred to Legendary Déjà Vu as a possibility figures could be released. but usually the figures have a limited run and may not show up a place near you. so sitting around and waiting is not a smart thing to do if you want it.

What if you dont want to spend $100 on it online

What if the weather is bad and you cant get out of the house

What if youre busy with a job or other responsibility

Amazon has always sold it for $29.99 when available. You're looking at 3rd party sellers if it's $50. I can't believe there are still people commenting in this thread that they don't have these adventure packs. If you're actively looking for them, they have been available more times than I can count for $30 at Amazon this past week. Don't whine and complain if you can't find them in a few weeks just because you didn't put in any effort in scanning Amazon a few times a day this past week. Retail stores are hit or miss...some areas are completely cleared out of these and some have plenty out to the point where they're taking up too much space.

Every last released Trap Team item other than wave 3 traps has been available on Amazon.com, Target.com, or GameStop.com in the past week. Light packs, dark packs, Kaos trap bundles, wave 1 figures, wave 2 figures, wave 3 figures...you name it and it's been on sale online without a markup. Maybe you need to expand your reaches online of you're sick of "everything" being out of stock recently. I'll admit that it's been MUCH harder to take advantage of retail store sales with Trap Team than it was with Swap Force due to lack of in-store Trap Team selection, but it's not like figures are unattainable.

A few of the items are much more miss than hit. I can see people being frustrated especially if they only can shop locally for whatever reason. My local spots are tragedies. This lull here in January seems much more pronounced than last year I definitely agree.

Supply and demand economics at work my friend. I think $7 is too much for a trap, yet people were paying $50 each for Kaos traps around the holidays....they've just now come down to $40 or so since supply has been increased and lots of stores are getting them in. Kaos traps should be down to $20 or less on EBay in a month or so.

I don't know if this is true or not, but I do doubt it. For some reason, people at these stores often don't know what they're talking about. The electronics guy at my Walmart commented to me that Skylanders is not popular anymore and Infinity was the only thing anyone wanted. I'm sure Infinity is popular but this is the same baloney people said to me years ago: Skylanders is dying, etc. Well, somehow their shelves are always full of different Skylanders products, so either the Skylanders are literally disappearing or someone's still buying them.

I find it amusing as well. The Skylanders stock is rotating and changing well other than the obvious shelf warmers while it seems the Disney Infinity selection is pretty much the same every time I go in since the supply exceeds the demand. Don't people get bored of seeing the same old Disney Infinity figures all in plentiful supply right next to the shelf overloaded with Mario, Peach, and Link Amiibo figures???

I know it is anecdotal, but in the shops near me, Skylanders either has the same or larger display area than DI (Target, BestBuy, Walmart, etc). In ToysRUs, they Skylanders display is usually 2x or 3x bigger, and it rivals the amount of space they have for games for each of the consoles (but still no Kaos traps though). I don't think it is going away any time soon.

It would not surprise me though if certain stores make changes to accommodate the customers in their local area.

Talking to a manager at toys r us I was told activision sent out one shipment on dec 21 and a small shipment of dark and light packs 2 each closer to new years eve after that nothing came back in stock and he told me other managers he talked to have told him the same thing no restock. He also stated that online you can order them but no option for store pick up he thinks that activision is trying to hype the new elements so make them hard to find at first and then flood the market later a possible tactic with the elusive kaos trap.

I thought the stores in my area did't have any at all, but the Target I went to had the two packs in the back of the gaming section to my suprise (with Kaboom, Tuff Luck, and Blastermind).

It's weird though. They have wave 1 of trap team in the front mixed in with the last wave of Swap Force.

I was going to post about that myself and I just caught this thread. I'm in Canada but in my area, EB has said it seems they can't get dark or light packs anymore, so they may be discontinued or in shortage. Microplay has said the same, only got a handful right on boxing day and they were sold within an hour and then nothing.

All Target stores are closing here within a couple of weeks so they don't seem to be getting new stock anymore obviously and I've been to 2 TRU and 3 Walmart and not a single dark or light pack to be found, sadly. This is terrible. smilie

All the Skylanders merchandise I see on Amazon.com is not available to ship to my location. I was lucky enough to find the dark pack, but not the Sunscraper Spire...
