I've gone through 4 boxes of 5.1, and I didn't see any variants.

It does make me wonder, though. E3's figure wasn't Gill Grunt, and Gill Grunt doesn't seem to be in wave 5. We know there is a Special Gill Grunt, thanks to someone checking the files from Spyro's Universe.

Wonder if this Special Gill Grunt will ever be released?



Hmph.

Maybe the second part of the wave will have him in it?

Sad to see people taking advantage of store employees by making price matches they know are wrong. smilie



Which price match? Both of the TRU sales will work for Wal-Mart since it lists the first items price and its not a percent sale.

Unless you are referring to people trying to use the SSA sale with Giants.

Went to Walmart in Simi Valley, CA last night and they had 2 boxes out of the 5.1 assortments. There were two S2 drobots (non lightcore) and one S2 Slam Bam among others. They also had multiples all of the SSA adventure packs except there were no Darklight Crypt.

FOUND HIM smilie I used the Buy 1 Get 1 $.99, they could only honor that one as it was the closest price. The box is labeled as Wave 5.1, and has
1x Spyro
1x Wrecking Ball
1x Double Trouble
1x Hex
1x Slam Ban
1x Drobot
1x Hot Dog
1x Lightning Rod
1x Stealth Elf
1x Fright Rider


That's only ten. What are the other two?

The other two are Flameslinger and Shroomboom.

There is a wave 5 box, which has single pack Jet-Vac, but it seems no Walmarts are getting those in, outside of one poster who said he spotted a single pack Zook, when he found his S2 Drobot.

I bet it's a six pack box, like they did with wave 4, where only six figures are in the box. If that's the case, we know two of the characters in that assortment, which is Jet-Vac and Zook.

Since when did Spyro's Universe necessarily correllate to physical figures? I know most of the variants appeared on there before it was shut down, but if there was a variant Gill Grunt of that type, it should have been discovered long ago when the code for Giants was hacked and all of the other figures, variants, etc. exposed. As I never heard or saw anything about such a character in the Giants code, I have a feeling it was more like the special variant characters in the mobile games like the flowery Wrecking Ball, the Valentine's Day Flameslinger, etc.

Ya, the box:

Comes with what Ghost said along with shroom and flame. I picked ou these 6 today from them:

The rest were in the box and I even took the box home smilie Using it to store my sealed ones.
I can see the final box of singles to have zook, ignitor, bash, slam, drobot, jetvac and a few others. Those would be my guess.

Don't know if this is what you're talking about, but a store here that sells (amongst other things) used video games has a clear green Gill Grunt in its display case. Is that it?

No, that clear Green Gill Grunt came with an xBox360 starter pack that was released on Black Friday 2012... it has a green base and is technically a S1 figure despite being released after Giants smilie

Man, thats just wrong intentionally taking advantage of a sale you know doesn't apply to the item. The .99 cent deal, as others have said, is for the SSA core Skylanders. The Giants are, I believe, $2.99.

Walmart in New Smyrna Beach, FL near Daytona Beach had a box in the back everything stated here was in it! Slam Bam and Drobot mine yey!

PS
If you really want one these Skylanders Giants at Walmart dont take the "we have none in the back" line cause they are definitely lying i went to 3 walmart and 2 walmart said that and i told them i still wanted them to check and when they check boom the box was in the back unfortunately it was missing slam bam so i had to go to the next walmart the 3rd walmart refused cometely to go check anyways in the back so i got a manager and stated that i just wanted them to check and boom and unopened box in the back. So show those Walmart employees who the customer really is!

I had a really helpful employee talk to me yesterday about this. If the shelves are full then apparently they will "bin" the boxes, in other words - put the boxes on the upper high shelves to get them off the stockroom floor. Not every employee can access the upper shelves since it is a work hazard to get them down. She said they had to wait until someone that could get them down was going to be there. It isn't always because they are lazy/mean, but yeah it sometimes is because of that.
