Regarding the Light & Dark Expansion Packs [CLOSED]

There seems to have been a lot of confusion in the community recently about the availability of the Light and Dark Expansion packs. Many people have been reporting that employees have stated the packs have discontinued however most people have accepted these as false claims from clueless employees.
BUT....

I have noticed that several website have been removing the Light & Dark Expansion packs from the search results altogether. I asked Smyths customer support and they told me that they were unsure whether or not they would be receiving the packs again. Argos added the Wave 4 Trap Masters to their own website recently and removed the Light & Dark Expansion Packs.
Now, I've been checking this site regularly for months now and I can safety say that Argos NEVER remove products from their website. They still have every single amiibo listed up there.
I think the fact that Knight Light, Knight Mare and the Dark trap included with the pack have been released in singles says that they have been indeed discontinued. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think I am.

That doesn't seem right.. Activision isn't getting any money through that.. and I really want those levels, they can't just .. discontinue them, can they?

When you think about it, they have spent time and money making those levels and what's the point in buying the light and dark traps separately if you can't trap anyone without the expansion. Also the soul gems are inaccessible for the single packs of the trap masters. I highly doubt they are discontinued, probably just supply shortage like the kaos traps, they are new elements so they've got to have been very popular. Simply put, either they are short in supply, don't want to make more for whatever reason or there are manufacturing errors or mistakes. Who Knows.

If you're in the US, give bestbuy.com a shot. I just checked, and while there aren't any in stock for shipping, both are in stock for in-store pickup at my closest store.

They must be starting to show up at stores again. Last week on ebay they were $200 a pair, now they are $100 with many more auctions showing up each day. If you still need one, I would check your local Walmart and get one quickly in case this is the last production.

I checked target.com and it showed my local store having the dark expansion. I called and they had both and held them for me. My two sons are very happy, plus got a crystal thunderbolt at toys r us earlier in the day.

I don't think they are getting rid of them. Knight Light and Knight Mare's Soul Gems are in them!

Nope. I saw ALL the boxes at two different TRUs, nothing...

And no Crystal Short Cut (sad Unreall is sad)

Once again, they are not discontinued. I have a game store and hear stocking information from Activision. They told me the light and dark packs are currently out of stock in Activision's warehouses, but Activision says they will have them in stock and will be shipping them again before the end of the month.

It has been proven over and over that they haven't been discontinued. Not only has BP proved it by actually getting information from Activision, but people have reported seeing them (even posting pics) in stores. I just did a quick search on Best Buy's and Target's site. Neither had stock in my area, but Target did show them in stock at stores in my state. So they're not discontinued, they've just been delayed in shipping like everything else.

BTW, the traps that come in them haven't been released in a single pack. They're different molds.

@obidawsn The light trap yes, but the dark trap is the same as the one that comes in the pack.

Neither trap in the element packs have been released as a single. The only light trap that has been released as a single is the rocket ship, and the only dark traps as a single are the sword and handstand. Neither the light owl nor the dark spider traps have been released as a single.

GameStops around the States should all be receiving new shipment of the Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs, hopefully in time for this weekend's Spring Savings event. My store alone will be receiving six of each, which is more than we even had when they first released! Plus a ton of Kaos Traps, too!!

@obidawsn Oops... my mistake. The store I usually go to for Skylanders had the single dark trap listed on the website as the one that came in the pack. I just assumed without really thinking about it. Sorry, my bad.

I remember being told back in January at my local toys r us that the light and dark expansions are discontinued according to the information he was able to pull up and when I went to toys r us yesterday they had the packs a ton of kaos traps an single packs of the light and dark trap masters, talking to him about it again he said it was a supply shortage and eventually all stores will get everything. It makes sense to me for example the regular kaos trap never came in until december and some charecters were unavailable like kaboom only a handful in toys r us and to this day none available but drive down the road to GameStop he is there but they don't have blaster mind some stores get very little of a specific charecter and you have to contend with employees snagging for there kids or them self and hope they don't scalp on eBay like thy did with the ligh trap with rebel lob goblin trap and kaos traps being scarcely available at GameStop.

Doesn't the BOGO 50% only apply to figures priced $7.99 - $14.99?

Anyone with the original dark set buy a new Knightmare? In store it looked like her paint job was more 'green' than the original, but I you know...don't travel with my 'Landers - so I had no way to compare.

They're easier to find than the Light Rocket & Dark Sword/Handstand traps.
