The main question is; Where?

It could EASILY be fake. In fact, it looks fake since the glue looks off.


Yep, going with fake. I can see obvious rips in the bottom.

Honestly the plastic bubble in which the trap is embedded looks wrong too...

Isn't it the Snake one...?
Doesn't look like it should contain the Tiki mold.

I can say that Best Buy looks like they got some sort of Wave 3 refresh of sorts (Trailblazer and Cobra there for those hollering last week they couldn't find them) but mine didn't have anything worth saying here.

Holy crap.

Someone post something.
Someone else calls it fake. They yell for "pics or it's fake!"
Someone posts pics.
Someone still claims it is fake.

I mean, seriously, some random dude posts a pic of stuff he got at Bust Buy and the internet detective force comes out to prove him wrong.

Try searching "Tech Tiki Trap Single Pack" on the Internet and tell me if you can find some image, because I couldn't find any.
This doesn't happen with other molds.

I said it looked fake, I'm not sure if it is.
But you have to admit it would be strange, since we never got infos about a Tech Tiki Single Pack, and yet we know every pack that has been released so far. smilie

Just like my Life Toucan trap with Riot Shield Shredder in it. The internet detective force swore it was fake and NOT real but i have it and there hasnt been another like it so far.... Hmmmm... Oops forgot the hack issue, but if so.. There hasnt been another so called Fake and or Hack trap like it.. Acoording to internet detectives, UncleBob speaks of... Its NOT REAL.... I must say its Rare... I'll eventually post and be rid of it on Evil Bay.

It's still kinda hard to even understand what you meant. You're still judging people over the internet about the photo being of a legit thing even if it's hard to tell.How can you even hack a Tech Tiki into a package?

I think it is healthy to have a dose of skepticism on new things, even with images. Images make a better case than words, but it is still not definitive at times. There are things there that raise questions:

- The the trap really isn't a match for the plastic molding. They tend to be a lot closer in shape.
- The edges/glue do look a little suspect.
- Best Buy tends to not be the "first place" for anything to show up.
- This would be something outside of the current circulating wave assortments.

Now, it could be the beginning of Wave 5, and that store could just be one of the first to have gotten it. But, I wouldn't go running out to every Best Buy in town looking for them just yet. In fact, that is exactly the reason we need to be skeptical of things like this. People will run from store to store, wasting gas and time all over someone's bad idea of a joke if it isn't real. It isn't harmless. If you want to be upset at people being skeptical, be mad at everyone that thought it was funny to post fake info - because they chose to degrade the reliability of the forum on purpose. Unchecked this place would turn into a mound of unquestioned Wicked Thumpback-like "sightings".

And if it is real, it will be revealed soon enough and they will be redeemed. Besides, no one is attacking - they are posting honest opinions - if that insults someone then the Internet probably isn't a good place for them to be. If that is a problem, then don't share - it will be found by others eventually as well.

If you are going to post something no one has ever seen, it is appreciated if it is real - and that will be proven so eventually.

Does it even matter??? Most of us have one and there are insanely few in-package completionists who must have every Skylanders item released in each unique packaging released. Face it...99.9% of people who wanted all traps got this in the 8 pack chasing after Steamed Broccoli Guy.

#16 Posted: 15:01:21 13/04/2015
No it doesn't matter. If the guy did it himself, and said that we would be like "hey, that's cool!". It's a clever way for fix the problem if you are into collecting packaged and want a complete collection that they may never "complete" otherwise. But it is being passed off as real with some things that don't look right.

I point to UncleBob as an example, as I recall he did a custom do-it-yourself glowie Cynder in package and swapped her into the single package for Cynder. It was a cool idea and looked really good given he collects packaged figures. And he never claimed it was "real". Nothing wrong with that.

I'm in the 'whatever' camp...I don't see the point in collecting traps, having a different mold doesn't affect gameplay. If you want one of each for a villain so all villains are accessible - fine, but I would have just bought them all at launch when they were essentially half off.

I agree with you, they don't provide any change to the gameplay.

But since I decided to have two traps per Element (excluding the Kaos one) I also decided to look for my favorite molds.
That's why there are different sculpts: simple choice. smilie

I bet what happened was, it fell out of the 8 pack, some employee was a ninkonpoop, they put it in a tech trap package, and glued it together.

Interesting theory skygrin...except the holder molds hold the Traps very well...no chance of them falling out.

Anyways ...skylandsfan i hate to be a buzz kill...but after looking at that pic you posted...he didn't buy that from Best Buy....its faked...sorry.
I can understand everyone wanting a single pack of the Tiki Tech Trap...can't tell you how many times i over heard kids an parents when the 8 - Pack was in Target an Toys R Us...if it wasn't...*you can't get that, you only have 10 dollars to spend.* or *thats over $40!!! your not getting that...pick something else.* ...they go on and on....and some where very unkind to there kids...i won't type those.

His first mistake was putting the Trap that came out of that mold holder in the photo....that mold holder is to the Torch Trap's. Here is how he did it...also i have not glued any of them closed. And yes i still have all my packages. smilie

I guess the Tech Totem Traps will never have their own real single packs. Ah, well. So much for that.

Sorry for the double post but I really don't see how it is rude to not let your kid buy what ever he wants you to buy. I work for my money and can't go to the store with $100 and expect to get a PS4

I can understand your point ninja9351 ...those where just 2 samples of what i heard. Yes spending only what you have is fine...going to the store with $100 and expect getting a PS4 is out of the question...i would say you only have X amount spend that also. But what i heard these kids saying, they knew Skylanders....and so did the parents knowing how Activision works with there crapy distribution techniques...(sending 100 to one store and 20 to another ...or less) They have been doing this long enough they know the marketing plan of each region. Getting the item that is a bit more then what they have to spend requires working out a deal with the kid...but thats just how i would do it. smilie
Also telling he/she only has 10 bucks(heard that one a lot) when they know how much skylanders cost....is just wrong to me...not to mechin' saying it loud enough for most of the people in the area hear her...is just wrong in my book...but thats just me. smilie

Yeah, but to be fair, you're not going to question your parents if you want to negotiate. 'We don't have enough money' is the oldest copout in the book and you'll get called a selfish greedy kid if you try to do the math and say it isn't true. It's better to just negotiate switching chores to afford things or if the kid is old enough start borrowing in exchange for helping them more around the house.
