I found Grave Clobber, Pain-Yatta, Hard Boiled Flare Wolf, Egg Bomber Air Strike and the 2 new Dark crystals in store at my local Toys R US in Quebec City, Canada. They were not available at EB Games, Walmart, Best Buy, etc. I was able to apply the Walmart sale on Senseis (-5$) with Grave Clobber and Pain-Yatta.

TRU Calgary had Grave Clobber, the 2 Easter Variants, and Pain-yatta in today, plus the 2 new dark crystals. Was super surprised to find the Crystal Pain-yatta variant as well!!! A nice looking variant smilie
Besides that and the Switch and Zelda game (plus amiibos), it feels like Xmas in March!!!

I found the Easter Air Strike (only one) and dark crystal at TRU, Easter Flare-Wolf at EB, and the GraveClobber/Painyatta at another EB. Had to go to several stores to put it all together, and each store that did have them only had a handful. Getting the distinct feeling stores have given up on Skylanders, or maybe they just aren't sending out large quantities.

There was at least 6 of each character and crystal at my TRU.

I'm guessing when the Switch was released Friday, people noticed there were new Skylanders and they got cleared out fast. Or this was just an initial trickle of figures? Every single other character was thoroughly replenished as shelves have been bare since Christmas around here.

Nope... :/ I waited Friday on purpose to check but no store received it. Bought the 2 Easter figures to compensate despite no discount. I wanted to wait for sales but there was only one of each left at my closest TRU and I am worried they won't receive more and other stores might never get them.

Alright, I'm back and kicking with skylanders again, enough to talk about Dollarama skylanders, if you like.

I continued my analysis by taking a peek at my local Dollarama to see what skylanders they offer. Again, my rate going to EB Games went down by 25% since they stopped taking in the preowned, and now Dollarama is one of the few places I rely on for my collection needs. Every pack seems to be $4.

Here's what pack types I've seen so far:

- Few Spyro's Adventure single packs
- Giant packs. This was the most common
- Swap Force single packs
- Trap Master packs, including the light/dark ones
- Mini 2-packs, which I found recently. I don't remember which ones, but I did remember seeing magic and a few other elements.

Also I'm surprised they didn't put up any trap packs! Those only went for a single-digit price, so I should be very likely they would sell them one day. Anyone else find anything interesting at Dollarama or other common dollar stores?

#1210 Posted: 23:22:22 28/03/2017
Has anybody checked their EB Games recently? I was there yesterday and saw the most minimal of skylanders stock out on the floor. Like 4-5 different figures. Apparently they keep the older stock in the back and the store guy said they are going for a few dollars at the least. Have you guys seen this? He also showed me a supercharger going at $5. I suppose I'll do some shopping next month to build my supercharger collection given that I've beaten SuperChargers a few weeks ago.

I wonder if other stores are working the same? I'll check Walmart and TRU further off when I go out.

TRU and EB Games in Canada have Cursed Tiki Temple. TRU does not sell it before April 7th, but EB Games does.

Also, Buy 1 Get 1 Free at TRU on Senseis and Crystals April 7th to 16th.

Got my order in at walmart.ca, I've had good luck with them for packaging and delivery times. Doesn't hurt that neither bestbuy.ca nor toysrus.ca show stock for the pack.

Picked up my CTT at EB Games here in Calgary. It appears that stores only received 2 packs, as the other EB I visited also had two sitting on the rack. Looks like really limited quantities for this pack, so get it while you can I guess! Also checked TRU and Walmart but didn't find anything at either store.

Seems like a very limited release. If I hadn't bought my copy online I don't think I'd have gotten it so soon, or at all if more shipments don't come.

Tidepool and Blaster-Tron are available for pre order at bestbuy.ca. No sightings in store or online anywhere else, and no signs of the Lost Imaginite Mine adventure pack anywhere.

LIM does not come out until May 26 or 28 in the UK. So who knows when its coming out here?

When you posted that, the release date indicated May 14th, now it's May 26th which makes more sense. I pre-ordered just to be safe, thanks!

Bestbuy.ca just sent me an email that Blaster-tron has shipped....but it was ordered with Tidepool on the same date and they have the same release date? W-E-I-R-D! Anyone else get one or both shipped?

Surprisingly, we found Blastertron and Tidepool today at Walmart in Calgary. They had 3 of each figure, so it looks like another small wave release. Get em while you can I guess-may be like the Thrillipede situation last year...

Found them at Walmart too, and at 15$ each instead of 20$, which is nice.

The Walmart releases make sense, since they stopped selling senseis online. Bestbuy.ca shows tidepool out of stock so maybe her shipment to their warehouse was smaller than Blaster-Tron. It'd be hard for me to believe that she's so much more significantly popular than Blaster-Tron that she simply sold out faster.

On a slightly unrelated note, anyone seen any of the other dark crystals anywhere? I have the cube already and am considering a second one, but don't really want a same crystal.

Both of mine shipped yesterday, arrived today. Did your Tidepool ship?

I've only ever seen the third dark crystal once, it arrived on its own at my closest EB Games...even the guy who put it out said it came in a box with a lot of other non-Skylanders merch. I think the first dark crystal thus far has only been available in the dark starter.

No Canadian news and apologies in advance for the blogpost. Just like with the 8 crystal pack we never got in NA, I became paranoid enough to think that the lost imaginite mines pack isn't going to make it over here, and if it does I expect it to be as rare as the dark and light packs were for Trap Team. My reasoning for this is mostly obvious by the way Activision has been treating word and news about Skylanders this year, but also motivated by dwindling supply of local figures and even of this particular pack overseas.

I hope you all can get your hands on it. I personally really like Ro-Bow.
Flame58 Blue Sparx Gems: 528
#1229 Posted: 18:17:43 14/08/2017
Yeah I'm pretty much done with Skylanders, my interest went down a lot after getting Wave 4. Even if Ro-Bow ends up being released in Canada, I might not even buy it.

Anybody living around Toronto?

There is a new Game Hoard store that opened up in Applewood Village Plaza which I came to for its grand opening. They have quite a stash of skylanders there including nearly a whole set of Spyro's Adventure ones. That's where I got Wham-Shell, the missing part of my Spyro's Adventure set smilie. Today, they are $3 each, but after the grand opening celebration this weekend, they will be $4, which is still okay. If anybody lives further west from Toronto. There is also a Game Hoard in Georgetown and Brampton, if you know where those cities are. Perhaps other related used game stores may carry the same figures.

Also, this was going on for a few months now so you may have noticed, most Dollarama stores have both Trap Team level packs. There's still plenty of them so there is no big rush going after them if you have never found Mirror of Mystery, like me, back in the day.

Not even in Ontario, and I imagine if I was I probably wouldn't have had much of a problem getting all the figures I wanted for the prices I wanted by now. But that's good information. Maybe I'll stop by a local Dollarama at some point to see if they have any Skylanders at all.

Just popped by myself to say that the toysrus.ca website seems to have restocked a fair amount of Imaginators products recently, while Best Buy and Walmart's online selection has stagnated, and has had no price-reduction sales aside from on starter packs.

Paid 40 bones for this today. JOKES! Waited so long and haven't even opened it. Most likely will scan the level and return it. Activision ditched us so ì have no problem returning it after spending thousands on this franchise.

#1235 Posted: 04:03:37 26/10/2017
Thanks for the heads up! I picked up mine here in Calgary a few days ago. They have at least a dozen on hand, along with various crystals from earlier waves.
