I agree with you on the paint quality but isn't just the state of all "toys" now? I don't care what nonsense they were telling us on all these convention presentations and these Youtube reviewers who get free stuff on how these were the best toys they ever produced. The Giants, Swap Force and even Trap Team figures were much more detailed, larger and better quality in my opinion. And weren't they cheaper? Some of the vehicles are fairly nice but I was disappointed with the quality, size and price of the Skylander Amiibo's/vehichles and I bought a 3ds and Dark Wii Starter Pack.

Hey guys. I went for some early morning hunting in Toronto at Walmart and they still only have wave 1. Checked everywhere but nothing and no racing pack or duel pack. Likely I didn't get no vehicles or characters on release day and now I got the one thing I wanted from wave one Dive Bomber! If you still need wave 1 stuff and your in the GTA reply to me and I'll give you the walmarts adress! Have a great Sunday all!

I got the legendary pack on Friday at the Dartmouth Crossing TRU and today I was able to get High Volt and Smash Hit there as well. They were the only store I went to that had anything from wave 2, and sadly they didn't have any of the vehicles.

#957 Posted: 23:37:44 06/10/2015
TRU in Brampton, ON had the Legendary Sky Racing Pack as well as the four new vehicle singles: Stealth Stinger (normal, not Nitro), Jet Stream, Shark Tank, and Burn Cycle (my favourite design of the bunch).

So it looks like TRU has all of wave 2 but dual packs, now. Probably next week on the 12th.

I got the Sky racing pack two days ago and earlier they had all the new vehicles (I got Burn Cycle, Jet Stream, Shark Tank and Stealth Stinger) as well as Smash Hit and High Volt!

No sign of Nightfall of course, though. smilie

As for EB, nothing new, sadly. And I won't even bother mentioning Walmart who have absolutely nothing Superchargers or even LEGO Dimensions around here. Only a truck load of DI 3.0. smilie

#959 Posted: 01:51:30 08/10/2015
Saw the two dual-packs at EB Games at Shoppers World, Brampton ON. $34.99 each. Meaning you save a grand total of 99 cents from buying figure + vehicle individually. Yay. It's still the only way to get regular Hurricane Jet-Vac right now.

Wow, I have to share this. I just had the crappiest experience ever. I thought this only happened to others.

So I head to EB in hopes to get a Jet Stream for a friend of mine since TRU are alreadyout of all wave 2 stock except the sky racing pack for now (only 2 days later!). And they had a dual pack! But only a single Terrafin/Shark Tank dual left and no Jet-Vac/Jet Stream. They only got 2 of each, it would seem. But they got them and had them out!

So I head to Microplay (another EB-style game store around here) in hopes to score and I get this a-hole attitude from this girl (she's younger than me, probably 25 and I'm 35, for the record) when I ask her if she heard anything about getting anything wave 2. Turns out, she has everything but she won't put them out until 10/12/2015. I saw them. They were right behind the counter in clear view! So I tell her TRU got everything wave 2 out and she calls me a liar. I tell her EB got the dual packs out and she says that can't be right.

It seems she's the type who spites TTL type of games and will do everything to cause grief to those like me who enjoy them. But it didn't end there! Just to spite me, she actually called the EB on the other side of the street to tell them to pull the stuff back, that it shouldn't be out! That *****! She called the competitor to tell them to pull it off the shelves! How low is that? Then she proceeds to tell me her DM (district manager) told her to make sure no one got it out and sells it before them on the 12th.

Needless to say, I'm extremely annoyed at the moment (and needless to say, I will never set foot in that Microplay store ever again).

#961 Posted: 08:33:39 09/10/2015
Hey, if doing business means turning away customers....her district manager will take a look at her business and realize it's time to replace her. Although register locks should be honored....there's really no reason for her to call you a "liar" if that's in fact what she said. You can calmly tell her that TRU has exclusives, and that today is in fact the release date. Interestingly, I don't see much on Wave 2 online yet...so maybe there was a week delay.

Poor store, maybe they're trying to make the 2-3 cases last thru Thanksgiving. smilie
xxseadragonxx Green Sparx Gems: 276
#962 Posted: 09:50:15 09/10/2015
Eh, to be quite honest, that store is well known to be trouble around here. They have very poor Skylanders and Dimensions stock and cater to the DI crowd, much like every Walmart seems to around here. Yet they have truckloads of stock, so I doubt it actually sells all that much.

Not to mention having two people working there who are self-proclaimed toys-to-life haters. I wouldn't be surprised if their DM is like that too. They'd rather fill their shelves with idiotic pop culture merch, I suppose. Either way, it's true that TRU has exclusives (the early sky racing pack, for example) but EB and Best Buy here got their dual packs out already (but they're already almost gone smilie ).

Funny that you'd say today is the release date, considering so far from the stores I visited, I haven't heard the 9th but I heard the 12th, the 13th and even the 18th! smilie

It feels as thought this year is much more of a cluster**** than the previous two.

Anyhoo, my buddy Alex is headed to Plattsburg this weekend, so he'll probably get all his wave 2 stuff over in the US.

Myself, I'm glad I got all my wave 2 stuff. Well, besides Nightfall of course. I wouldn't be surprised if she's only re-released with wave 3, honestly.

It's confirmed as of yesterday's TRU ad. That ridiculous. Even accounting for the lowest the Canadian dollar has been, that's still a huge mark up for no good reason. These should be floating around the $24.99 range, comparatively speaking.

I don't know if its TRU doing the mark up though - they're holding steady for Disney Infinity at 13.99, when other retailers have started to buckle and mark up the characters to $16.99.

This is disapointing, I won't buy them until there's a price drop... I mean it's understandable that a $34,99 pack is sold 44,99$ in Canada, but there's no reason for a $21,99 US product to be 34,99$... It should have stayed at 29,99$.

I'm seeing the 3-packs at EB Games in Milton, ON. Jet Stream, Shark Tank and Terrfain will set you back...$39.99 + tax. That's not bad, actually, considering the prices this year. For the cost of just over two vehicles, you get the Skylander for free. This is of course, assuming you had the patience to wait for the 3-pack and that they will be continually stocked moving forward.

Saw them all at EB today....tons of Nightfall.
I wanted to get Splat & Nightfall, but I cannot warrant the full retail price. Unless I knew they would be really hard to find, not currently worth $16.99 each to me.

And $34+ for an Elite is outrageous. The collector figure lines out there you could get for the same price in comparison makes this laughable. Wait a number of months, these will be clearanced. Superchargers merch does not seem to be selling as well as previous games. At least from what it appears around here.

An eventful skylander day in Calgary--found Elite Boomer at TRU, and Walmart had the non-legendary Astroblast Sky Racing pack, as well as the new vehicles Thump Truck, Splatter Splasher and Shield Striker. I arrived around 4pm so they might have had Splat, BB Pop Fizz, and LL Eruptor there earlier, but the actual characters weren't there by the time I arrived. Missed out on those I guess, but I am sure TRU and EB will get wave 3 soon enough.

A heads up that tomorrow (Sat Dec 5) is Skylander Day at EB games, and they have BOGO on vehicles and riders, $20 off racing packs and starter packs for $39.99! (I actually hate them a bit for doing this so soon after the Black Friday sale, which wasn't nearly as good).

The best part is I saw Wave 3 at EB today as well. If you read this tonight or tomorrow, worth making a run to see if you can take advantage of the sale. I haven't opened the figures I bought at Wal-Mart and plan to return them and take advantage of the better deal.

No Nightfalls in Winnipeg. All the EBs have Missle-Toe and wave three singles, but no Nightfalls. The BOGO deal can be used to mix and match drivers with vehicles. If they tell you otherwise, the email came in this morning while I was in the store.

Toys r Us will have at least elite Boomer and elite Dinorang dated for the 11th. They will be in the flyer. My TRU already had those two in the back room so I have seen them. No Ghost Roasters on hand. I don't know if that means it won't be available for that date or if my store just didn't get him yet.

TRU also has Missle-Toe in the back room dated for the 9th.

No luck with anything new at Walmarts thus far.

No signs of the two packs or racing pack anywhere.

#984 Posted: 16:36:48 05/12/2015
I'm finding it odd that some EB got NightFall while others didn't...especially as its featured in the flyer for EB's Skylander day. I've called a lot across Ontario, and best I can tell there is no way to use the website tracker to locate it. Walmart here in Southern Ontario all had Wave Three (minus NightFall) for days. The EB locations all seemed to pull Wave Three out today, which was handy with the sale!

I love collecting Skylanders....some things show up at some stores, while other stores get something totally different. You'd think they'd send out the same stuff to all stores (not counting exclusives)? When a batch of LEGO Dimensions or Disney Infinity figures come out, they get to every store almost the same day. This is the joy of Skylanders hunting. I'm speaking on how some EB got NightFall for the big Skylanders day while most didn't, and now some Sky Racing sets are at some Walmart.

Does anyone know of a good place in Winnipeg to find used Skylanders? Last time I went to EB Games at Kenaston Blvd, they didn't seem to sell used ones.

I'm looking for used ones because I want to find some older figures(i.e. Ones from Swap Force and earlier games), and it's becoming hard to find those ones now.

Oh good, another Winnipegger! We may be the only ones.

I haven't seen much used unfortunately. The EBs here just don't seem to do them. Message me a list of who you are looking for and I will keep an eye out for them and message if I find any of them.

On a side note, ONE of the eight EBs in town did actually get Nightfall. The one in Garden City has three of them as of less than two hours ago.

Friday's TRU flyer had a sale on Eon's Elite for $19.99 each. Sure there may be an even better sale down the line, but that's at least comparable to the regular Superchargers line. The flyer only advertises Boomer and Dino-Rang as the new additions but my TRU had Ghost Roaster as well, so all 6 should be out.

Also there was the light racing pack and the jet vac + vehicle pack. No Christmas variant dive clops yet, I think I'll have to go some time soon to ebgames to get some more new stuff.

I haven't checked WalMart in awhile - would make sense Bowser is selling out, most people probably got a next gen starter and skipped the Wii/3DS versions.
