For me, I found this morning Jingle Bell Chompy mage at TRU. This afternoon, I found Buckshoot, pit Boss, Bad Juju, chain Reaction and flare wolf at TRU and Best Buy. I live at Montreal.

Yeah, awesome news. Going to keep my eyes peeled now! Shouldn't be long to have them here in Quebec if you got them in Montreal.

Thanks for the heads up!

GOOD NEWS! The W3 senseis are showing up in stores on bestbuy.ca and seem to be available to order again. I'll update when they confirm either my in-store reservation AND/OR my online order.

Got my confirmation email that Flarewolf and Chain Reaction are being held at local BestBuy. Also supposedly the other three will be delivered by Wednesday. It does seem like many are sold out online already, and after reserving the other two they are gone in store too.

Logged in quickly to tell you all what Siva just did. Shame they're all sold out in store in my city, but at least they FINALLY shipped the preorder I made a week and a half ago. Chain Reaction is looking to be the hard to get Sensei for this wave... Which is fine by me since he looks very slow gameplay-wise, despite looking pretty badass in terms of character design. Hope you guys all get your sought-after figures. Good luck. As soon as I spot Mystical Bad Juju and/or Ro-Bow I'll come by to let you know; they're the last two figures I want.

I went today to pick up my in-store reservation of Chain Reaction and Flare Wolf, suddenly Pit Boss started flickering available at local store so I asked. They located him, 1 x Bad Juju, and 1 x Buck Shot. The guy at Best Buy was SUPER helpful, he went and looked for them. He claims the reason things flicker on the site is that they are in-stock but "not counted" towards stock level. Unfortunately he claimed other than Flare Wolf he got only 1 of every other character. Seems they are being packed in with the first waves randomly.

Looks like it's another week of waiting for me. I went to TRU and BB and still nothing this morning, got told they should have them by the end of the week, probably Wednesday or Thursday.

I'd order from the BB site as well but Chain Reaction's already sold out and considering last two online orders I did...

One was Purolator and I wasn't here and they sent it to the shipping warehouse that's like 40 minutes drive from here. smilie

The other time was through normal mail and they left the box in front of my door since I was at work. Now, that wouldn't be a problem... if only I didn't live in an unlocked apartment building where anyone can enter through the main door. If I didn't have a decent elderly neighbor, someone could have taken it and gone away with it unseen.

So yeah, online ordering is not exactly the way I want to go about it until their sort their **** out.
Living Joker Green Sparx Gems: 196
#1159 Posted: 07:56:20 11/12/2016
I hear you seadragon. Purolator is probably my least favorite courier option, even less than DHL right now. They never leave me a delivery notice and are the furthest away from me, both at home and work. It's always awful when CP leaves the package at your door; happened a few times to me and I just got lucky my neighbours didn't try to steal it, since I have the misfortune of some unscrupulous people always living in the apartment next to mine.

To be honest I DON'T want to find out Chain Reaction is really good. Spent too much money on this year's game already.

Hi all. Found a few Santa Chompy Mages and only one other wave 3 figure at the TRUS in Hamilton. Got a Buckshot. Apparently some jerk went in and bought out all the other wave 3 figures and luckily missed the one I got. The guy did say they had another box of Mages in the back. Tried the Stoney Creek TRUS and no Wave 3 figures. Sad. Wanted to take advantage of the BOGO 1/2 Off Sale this weekend.

#1161 Posted: 12:33:30 12/12/2016
Thanks for the update chicoz. Since the day I took off Black Friday to try to do a little bit of shopping myself, and being told at each store I went to that someone went in and bought all the harder to find figures, I'm kind of done wasting time going to stores and would rather deal with awkward shipping options to guarantee myself a figure if I go for it. Maybe other people in other cities have more luck, but it's starting to look like stores don't give a **** about scalpers buying everything.

#1162 Posted: 02:44:17 13/12/2016
I was able to find Flame Wolf, Pit Boss and Buckshot at TRU this weekend. I had to do a store reservation at Best Buy to score Chain Reaction and Bad Juju.

Good luck getting them, they came in very limited quantities...

For now everyone but Chain Reaction is available at bestbuy.ca and... Nowhere else online. Amazing. If I wasn't used to this by now I'd call this grounds to believe the cancellation rumor. Still super curious about the plans for Mystical Bad Juju in Canada. If by the end of this weekend she's not out anywhere, I'll either have to grab the regular one (bleh) or import her (too expensive). Decisions decisions.

That's a pretty good deal newkill. Looked for figures at my local walmart twice; once they had next to nothing, the other time it was mostly all a few of the same figures.

Thanks to all for the BestBuy.ca tip - made a trip out to the best buy at Coquitlam last night and grabbed 4/5 Wave 3 characters, made another reserve at the richmond location to pick up Chain Reaction today. JB Chompy Mage is...sporadic. The Crash Bandicoot and Enchanted Forest packs are plentiful across the board.

I assume we'll see more Wave 3 eventually - this should typically not be the hard wave to find. That said if the rumblings are true and EB's relationship to Skylanders has soured, this will be a new challenge this year. First time in the franchise's history I've turned to Best Buy for a post-launch wave of figures.

That and since I've moved out west, I've had to relearn which stores are the friendly/reliable ones that get stock in on time...so far it's no one.

Hm. Maybe I should stop off at my local shop just in case. Which city was this in j0nathan?

Edit: Walmart's $10 sale is in effect online too. Almost all the figures are gone but maybe some of you can grab a fig or two you're missing before they're all gone.

Edit2: I wasn't interested at all in Chain Reaction, but a half price sensei that is somewhat uncommon to find anyway? Ordered.

Mystical Bad Juju is at all the EB locations around us, it was already out on the shelf (with no street date). Also, Walmart.ca has all W3 in stock on the website at $9.97 each!! I ordered 2 of each (for myself and daughter), but am holding onto my Bestbuy.ca order until the Walmart.ca ships....JUST IN CASE. Technically Bestbuy would match Walmart right?

Got my Mystical Bad Juju too, going to test it tonight to make sure she works. Thanks for the heads up j0nathan, I might have skipped the stop if you hadn't said something.

Siva, I have a very bad history of Best Buy deciding NOT to price match based on lame rules they put in place like, limited time, and limited quantity prices. You could give it a shot but I wouldn't believe it. I'm doing the same thing you are though, holding on to my figures until walmart confirms the shipment, which I hope they do by Monday at some point.

I was lucky enough to find a regular Bad Juju at the Ancaster BB when I went to pickup my Chain Reaction and Flarewolf. Saw the Mystical ones at EB but my son and I agreed the regular version looks better in our opinion. W3 has been a bit of a joke.

I find it VERY hard to believe Walmart.ca didn't sell out yesterday, but they still show in stock for every single W3 sensei. I'm going to BestBuy today, getting the receipt adjusted on the 6 I bought for now (hopefully). Then when/if Walmart.ca confirms my order I'll just return 'em for the rest. On 6 figures that's $70 bucks or so adjusted to match Walmart.ca that I can use to buy extra gifts

I did the same thing before, but then what happened was they refunded the entire price of the purchase, then charged the sale price, so when I went to return the sale price item the clerk was clueless for about half an hour while they failed to understand what was happening, and waited for someone who knew what they were doing to look into things better.

To save myself the aggravation, the time, and needing to spend time in the overly congested streets especially at this time of the year, I'm going to play it as safe as possible and not try to do what you're doing Siva, even though I agree without the idiocy of some of the staff I'd have to deal with it is definitely the best option.

Mystical Bad Juju found at my local Calgary EB Games location. Looks like a small supply, maybe six figures there? We had stopped at some other EB locations first and they didn't have any, and didn't even know EB was getting an exclusive...yikes. Also saw a very spotty selection of wave 3 at Walmart--all they had was a Juju and a Pit Boss, nothing else (and that was at only 1 location-the other 3 we checked had no wave 3).

Considering they are all still IN STOCK on website, wondering if all the stock is being sold there? I've yet to see an IN STOCK at any stores within 100 miles of me (just type in several postal codes)

All of the Walmart we visited today had W3 figures, but in very limited quantities. The price was always $19.96, but upon scanning they become $9.96. Chain Reaction is the rarest one, but Toys R Us has quite a few of him with the others so rarity depends on retailer. I returned all my Best Buy bought ones except Chain Reaction, who now shows out of stock on Walmart.ca.

Same here, finally! But the glass-half-empty in me is worried something will happen to the figures in transit, haha. My plan was to get all the figures I needed for next week to actually play the game with my partner, but I'm so worried about something going wrong I psyche myself out. It'll probably be fine so think I'll make my returns tomorrow too, and maybe take advantage of the buy two crystals for $20 deal bestbuy.ca has going on right now, with a store pickup and using my $5 certificate.

FYI Best Buy's boxing day flyer is up. Starter is $50 as normal, but "figures" are starting at 6.99, and they show 2 crystals and 2 senseis. I'm going to guess that the crystals will be $7 and the senseis will finally match Walmart's fantastic sale price of $10, which will continue next week according to Walmart's own flyer.
Sivadreamer Gold Sparx Gems: 2821
#1188 Posted: 18:44:13 21/12/2016
My figures were delivered today! A very strange thing I noticed was the box they used was a W3 box (I ordered 7 figures and the box holds 12). The sticker on it said DO NOT SELL BEFORE OCT.16, which might explain why one Walmart around me was putting out tags for all W3 figures on Imaginators release day.

The other more amazing fact is....they sent me the ORANGE CHASE CHAIN REACTION! I got two (one for myself and one for daughter) and one of them was the variant, never had that happen with a shipped figured. I've found plenty in store over the years, so my jaw dropped!

#1190 Posted: 18:24:13 24/12/2016
INTERESTING POINT: Orange Chain Reaction boosted the peak level the same way a variant like Mystical Bad Juju did. Also has anyone released by putting multiple iterations of the same character gives you a boosted piece to build with? We put 4 Chain Reaction on and his piece kept being booster, wonder if there is a limit to that??

People have stated that putting multiple of the same version of a sensei doesn't boost the maximum imaginator level for them... But you've said otherwise for Chain Reaction specifically. Maybe this is just another of those bugs that exist for some characters/versions of the game? Like nearly everything about this whole series good luck trying to find any true information.

Or maybe just another bonus to anyone rich enough to get a bunch of the chase variants?

In any case, most of the sales I mentioned earlier are on, except strangely Best Buy didn't match the Walmart sensei sale, and even more strangely they're all sold out online, and most strangely they have the better sale on creation crystals which they have in stock in spades.

Walmart's sale is fine. The crystals are a dollar more expensive but they seem to have stock of nearly everything, so have at it guys.

Toys R Us isn't even worth talking about, everything is more expensive there and their online store is currently a joke.

So I phoned four local EB stores, and only one location had 1 figure. Either this is an initial trickle of releases, or they are playing it very safely to avoid overstock like Superchargers. All EB locations only had a handful of Imaginators period, I feel fortunate to have found Mystical Tae Kwon Crow.

EB at Metrotown in Burnaby also had 6. Given the lack of shelf space dedicated, 6 is enough to fill out the pegs (along with Flare Wolf and a few other wave 3 figs).

Still eagerly awaiting the wild storm adventure pack.
