Trading cards today, CAN WE GET A STICKY? [CLOSED]

Found the trading cards at Target this morning. I grabbed ten packs for my boys to split. They thought the cards were really cool and I was glad to see they liked them. They actually got no doubles out of 60 cards. I think at $2 a pack they are more than they should be. I think $1.25 a pack would be more suitable. But they are neat and the boys had a fun time going through their latest Skylanders swag.

can you post the DPCI from your receipt? It could a go long way in helping those of us in the US who are looking for them.

Hey what's a jumbo pack? I didn't see that. Just the 6 card packs. Is a jumbo pack more cards together. That would prob be more economical.

I'll be right back and provide the DPCI for everyone to use, so people can have an easier time finding them, instead of guessing if their local Target has them.

The jumbo pack has 18 cards for $4.99, plus you get to see the first two cards.

Here were the top two cards from the four I saw:
1) Spyro, Sonic Boom
2) Camo, Wham-Shell
3) Prism Break, Cyclops
4) Hidden Dragon Treasure, Chompie

I'm not sure whats hard about finding them. Drive to Target, go to baseball card section, look for Skylanders box, pick up random amount of packs, go pay, go home give them to children, watch them smile and say thanks dad! I don't need a code for that.

Not all Targets are good about stocking, though. They generally suck.

Here are the DPCI's -

6 packs 1.99: 055-06-1153
Jumbo Packs 4.99: 055-06-5751

A good example of all Targets not stocking when they should, is that I found Jumbo packs still in a box behind a register, while they had regular packs out in force. Infact, they had no spot for jumbo packs. This is why it's better to get the DPCI's and call Target to find out what they have. Had I not looked behind me, I wouldn't have seen a box behind the register, with jumbo packs in it.

Bought 1 jumbo pack to keep sealed, and quite a few regular packs for the kids and I.

But where would you find them at TRU? I can't think of a spot that would have trading cards at their store.

EDIT: Forgot that Tigster doesn't live in the US. TRU's in other countries might be different.

Auuuuuugh... I agree. IMO everything should have at least some kind of worth with the media. Like how a couple of the books come with unlock codes for Universe. I would buy these cards then. I think I remember hearing the packs are $4 here though which is too much... TBH I would probably go for it if it were still $2...

I checked with both Walmart and Target a while back to when these would come in. I found out that they get shipped in through Walmart or Target but a Merchandiser in most cases take care of the card section. I checked with my Walmart and the merchandiser won't be in till next Tuesday and may Target said they never know when the merchandiser will come in. Sometimes you will see a cart by the cards filled with future stock.... A merchandiser is a company the store pays for to stock that particular section. I'm not sure if all stores do this but mine do.

I bought the TRU exclusive binder ($9.99) and 5 of the jumbo packs($5.99 each) to check this product out. I like them and I'll probably collect all of them. The quality is of the card itself is really good.

The TRU Collector's Binder will contain:
*Binder with a Skylander Giants game artwork as an insert sheet for the front and back. Both sheets carry 1 page of the card checklist.
*2 Regular Packs (6 cards each) with random cards.
*TRU Exclusive cards containing Legendary Jet-Vac, L-Spyro, L-Ignitor and L-Stealth Elf. The Legendary Foil cards have a gold character names
*The Exclusive pack will also contain a special trigger happy, stump smash and spyro card that has an embossed outline. Pretty cool.

The Jumbo packs are 2 packs connected together consisting of 9 cards each (total of 18).
Random cards but I got 2 foils in one of the pack so that was pretty cool

The Regular packs which contain 6 random cards.
Both the packs contained 1 foil card.


Card info
All cards are of high quality print with a black border.
Foil cards have a silver foil border and a foil character picture

Card Checklist Summary
Regular (1-123)
Enemy, Item and Skylander character cards

Foil Cards (124-155)
All Skylander characters cards

Lightcore Cards also Foil (156-163)
All Lightcore Skylander characters cards

Giants Cards also foil cards (164-171)

Puzzle Cards (A1 to B9)

Coloring Cards - Cards that have a BW printed outline of a character (C1 to C7)

Yeah, I grabbed the binder from TRU as well. It doesn't include the poster like the European version does, and it doesn't have the Master Eon card, but it does contain 2 boosters and the Legendary + GITD cards (4 Legendaries + 3 GITD).

Interesting thing, is the Legendary cards start at L5 and go to L8, meaning that somehow, there are cards labled L1-4. I can see how this can be, because one of the Legendary cards, is Legendary Spyro, so Legendary Bash, Bouncer, Chop Chop, Chill, and Trigg are missing.

Also, the GITD cards are labled G4, G5, and G6. Meaning they probably have other ones in the works.

I am missing 47 cards to have the complete set. smilie

My wife found them near the check lanes near the card 4 way on another 4 way.

Pros - 7 unique cards per set, plus 2 packs of cards (( Need to buy 2 of these to get the 8 Legendary and 6 GitD ))
Cons - Binder is only 4 panels per page compared to the Europeon one with 9 and I believe the same or less pages. Only 14 pages in the TRU version.

$10 for these compared to about $8 for the European version.

Check this out, guys. So, I was Toys R Us, after someone here mentioned two binders having 2 different sets of cards, and I found the second binder that contained Legendary Bouncer, Trigg, Slam Bam, and Chop Chop, plus Stealth Elf, Eruptor, and Gill Grunt GITD cards. However, I found something even cooler.

I found a binder, that had the Legendary Bouncer pack of cards inside, but get this, Legendary Bouncer's card had an empty spot where his name should be. Needless to say, I bought it with the swiftness and keeping it sealed.

LOL An error card! Good find! I will have to go back to TRU!

FYI the Jumbo Packs are $4.99 at target. I found them at the back where they have a card game section close to the toys and not at the front where they have a big cards section. As usual TRU is a little bit more expensive.

ehhh i honestly cant see me collecting these. I know others think they are cool, but to me i see no point. I might be more interested if the cards had more artwork on them rather than ingame shots for certain characters like Flynn and enemies. I think the individual skylander cards are decent but still it's nothing we haven't seen before. for some reason i even managed to get a completely black card....don't see the point in that

Yeah, at my stores they are on little islands by the registers. If yours doesn't have them, it could be because they just haven't been brought in yet, by the guy who stocks cards.

Does it seem like more TRUs have them than not? I cannot find them on the TRU website, none on eBay. Am I really surrounded by a bunch of incompetent morons who have no clue what they're talking about (saying they don't exist) Or do most TRUs just not have them yet? I'm not driving an hour to go to a TRU if I'm not positive they have them. *grr*

My TRU had 4 of each pack Friday, nothing Thursday..so might be something trickling in. I'd call then and have them physically walk the 4 way/islands in front of the check lanes for them to know if they have them or not.
