Wave 4 Shipment Update [CLOSED]
BP Blue Sparx Gems: 631
#1 Posted: 11:45:39 19/03/2015 | Topic Creator
I finally got confirmation on what I am getting in my first new shipment from Activision (arriving Friday):

Wave 4 Cores
Wave 4.5 Trap Masters
Easter Skylanders

No Traps, no element packs, and no trap triple packs (although I was told I might get those next week).

I have no idea what is in the Wave 4.5 figure mix, but for me, it appears they skipped Waves 3 and 4, and I never saw a single box of them for Trap Masters. Maybe they are stuck on a carrier ship and we will see those later in the month.

I wish! In hundreds of cases of Skylanders, I have never received a single clear chase figure (swap force or trap team). I did recieve a factory defect spotlight that is missing the outline around one of his eyes if anyone is into that kind of thing.

If you're receiving shipments from Activision, don't expect to see a Clear chase figure anytime soon. You'll usually get upcoming Wave Skylanders.

Dont dash my blissful ignorance Aura! Every time I get a shipment, I quickly scan through all the boxes thinking "maybe I'll get lucky and find a clear one this time." Of course I never do and probably never will. But things like that are half the fun.

I'm not bashing, since I've been getting the same exact shipments as you're starting to get.

Echo is a surprisingly cool character. And she seemed like she was going to be a boring Zap look alike. Blackout and Spotlight are both awesome though.

I only missed light/dark traps, because I was initially concentrating on the cores & Trap Masters, which I got them all. However, the traps came in shortly after I left, so I missed out. Went the next day & got the other 7 traps. Other people were going crazy getting them, though I don't know why. Compared to the dark spider trap & the light hawk trap, they aren't all that really important. I'll get them, but the traps in the expansion packs are going to be a hell of a lot harder to get because they're unique molds compared to the other four, which the other elements have similar ones

Yeah I don't get the fascination over the light/dark...other than continue this "restricted" supply to justify 2x buying prices. The only reason to nab them is to see that in the trap collection screen you've got them all, and/or to represent each of your dark villains in a trap. I've already captured/upgraded all of them in the one trap with the expansion pack...so it seems a bit too little too late to me. They should've released them concurrently with the expansion release.

To me is fine, because I want two traps for each Element (Kaos excluded, since I don't want two identical traps, and his evolved form isn't a drastic change... But I got tempted when I saw 4, Saturday smilie); one to store evolved villains, and the other for their basic forms.

Absolutely couldn't care less for the collection screen.
I buy what I want, and since they don't even give you any bonus (like some collectibles did, in SWAP Force) it isn't really a problem, for me.

anyone interested currently amazon.com is selling Echo.
I already ordered her and it sounds like with her 1 in a box situation you might as well grab her now if you want her.

I honestly lost interest in buying all the traps after I started playing and realized you only really need one of each element. I currently have a life trap, a water trap, a light trap, and a kaos trap, and I'm content.

Just an update:

I just heard that my Wave 4 trap shipment is enroute and should be to me in the next 2 days. If you haven't seen any yet, Wave 4 traps should be hitting the shelves momentarily. I don't yet know whether these are Wave "4" or "4.5," but I will post after I find out.

Also, my shipment is just the boxes of 24 single traps. I have seen some of the trap triple packs in limited quantities in other stores, but I do not believe that Activision has shipped the triple packs I ordered yet.

#24 Posted: 01:36:33 27/03/2015 | Topic Creator
The traps shipping right now are Wave 4 (not 4.5 yet). The box breakdown is:

1 Water Axe (Why?)
1 Earth Headstand
2 Tech Headstands
2 Dark Headstands
2 Dark Swords
2 Life Swords
2 Air Swords
2 Fire Captain's Hats
2 Undead Captain's Hats
2 Light Rockets
2 Magic Rockets
4!!! Kaos Traps

One other note: I finally got a new order of minis...Wave 1, so we are backtracking on those.

They should not ship another water trap....EVER. Maybe in wave 5 and literally randomize the form across the six.

I just want some of the traps from Wave 3. I never got a single shipment of them. At least they could have included the Water Helmet to make it a little easier to find instead of the Water Axe...
GhostRoaster Yellow Sparx Gems: 1803
#27 Posted: 13:14:50 27/03/2015
I think I've seen wave 3 traps in the wild maybe twice or three times. I'm solidly convinced my diligence back in December is the only reason why I got all of them.

I made the same comment when I broke the news on this on the podcast that a friend and I have been doing for the past couple of months. With special sales being designed to finally get rid of all of the overstock, I can't fathom why this was added and the new Earth trap was shortpacked.

Something else I heard today from Activision. They are going to start releasing some waves as "X.6" (i.e."2.6") with NO water traps and more Kaos traps.

That sounds interesting and honestly anything is better than getting anymore water traps. The problem was that there were too many water traps available at day 1 and too many ways to get the water traps. Also doesn't help that water was one of the traps included within the game so everyone already had one from the beginning.

Here is my question: how does the person in charge of merchandising for Activision still have a job? It wouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the light and dark traps would be in highest demand, since collectors would want one and so would people trying to get one trap for each element.

Or coming out with 3 molds when there were 4 villains.

Yes the 3 molds for 4 villains is annoying especially when I tried to order two of the dark dagger/sword traps from Amazon and they would only let me buy one. Still Haven't found the Dark Handstand on any websites, except for scalpers on eBay and Amazon.

Something else interesting: I just got a mixed shipment of Wave 3 and 4 traps. I don't know what this means for the trap masters and cores yet, but it may be that Activision is starting to work back through the backstock of Wave 3 stuff that was supposedly tied up in the dock strikes.

I also finally got my shipment of light and dark packs. That isn't novel because many stores have been getting them, but I thought I would mention it.

I get that from a business perspective, but from a PR standpoint? They definitely should have known better, especially since they apparently heard fans loud and clear that nobody wanted any more water traps showing up at retail. I'm guessing they may have only started listening about the time that all of their stock got tied up in the dock issue which would have made it too late to fix things in this case.

I went to GameStop yesterday (wednesday).. I was LUCKY, Wednesday is their price change day, and they just got a new shipment of stuff... But while their system updated, their labels did not by the time they relabeled them, so I was able to pick up 2 Eon's Elite (you all may think its a ripoff, but most of them are among either me/my bro's all-time faves, which I'd do ANYTHING to make viable [the ones that are MY faves are Stealth Elf, Spyro, Trigger Happy, and Gil Grunt {can't beat the classics! shame they didn't use Cynder tho}, and my bro's faves include: Chop Chop, Stealth Elf, and Terrafin {he prefers melee, mostly heavy hitters, I like ranged attackers and thief-type fast paced melee}]) for the sale price of 20$ when the price was supposed to be 25$... (because the labels still said 19.99)
Also, they were so backed up from that, that they didn't have time to finish shelving their new shipment, meaning I was able to nab a KAOS TRAP beFore any of the employees "shelved" them... I don't have a camera or cellphone so I can't prove it...
but there was AT LEAST four of them...

They have the following: 9 Thunderbolt (0 clear), 5 Short Cut (0 clear), 8 Blastermind, 4 Tuff Luck, 6 Knight Mare, 2 undead minis, 2 earth minis, 1 tech minis, 0 traps
Hard to believe that they had anything W4 at all
