Got them in State College, PA yesterday. 2 HD, 2 JV and 4 of each of the other 2 were hanging on the pegs, big as you please, when I walked up to the display.

Scratch is the best Skylander ever. Better than Camp, better than Pop Fizz. It does NOT hurt that I really enjoy cats.



I'm confused at how Camo and Pop Fizz are in the same sentence....for me, Pop Fizz is not bad, but just mediocre.

Found Scratch & Fryno at the Massapequa NY Walmart. They only had one Fryno left and no other new figures. I asked an associate if they had more and was told only what was on display....I think he just didn't want to check.

Oh, before I went to Massapequa I stopped in at the Valley Stream Walmart and found nothing. The associates there were also not much help.

I went by my regular Walmart last night and nothing, of course. "Everything we have is out". Sigh. Typical for that Walmart. They have a pathetic display that is intermingled with Infinity and all the figures (swappers, Giants, singles, etc.) are put up haphazardly.

However, I went by a much better one after dropping my son off at preschool and found them on the pegs. So they are in NC now, too.

@nocturnalnathan: Only Walmart for now.


Which explains how come I haven't seen them. I'll never step into a Walmart.....

Now I wonder how Walmart managed to finagle an exclusive on a wave, since TRU's usually the oe to do so. Do you think TRU might be splitting their revenue for Infinity and Skylanders exclusives, and so can't do as much for it? And just when will these figures hit other stores?

Hot Dog/Jet-Vac/Fryno/Scratch found locally at Wal-Mart in Charlotte, NC, today. Not exactly breaking news at this point, but figured I'd let anyone reading that's local know they are on the shelves, in small quantities.

I'd imagine that was mostly hype. They might've been hoping people would go crazy waiting for them, and then buy them all up once they come out.

After checking 4 different Walmarts every day for the past four days, I finally found them! They hadn't been shelved, but luckily I saw the box labelled W4 sitting next to the register, hidden under a W3 box. I grabbed one of each and left the box open, so at least anyone else walking by can get one.
If anyone's curious, I'm in the Boynton Beach area, so they should be available to everyone in the South Florida area! If you're as far south as Miami though, you might have to wait another day or two.

Thank you and good luck with your search. I've noticed that the associates at both locations are pretty useless. If you don't see what your looking for then your just s.o.l because no one's gonna help you. I'm just happy I found 2. Would have loved Hot Dog too since we don't have him at all but I'm sure he will turn up eventually.

I decided to give it another shot after work today and I went to one of the Wal Marts again. Yesterday they had nothing that showed they even got anything from Wave 4. Today I found a lot of Fryno, about 3 of Scratch and one Jet Vac. Only one I'm missing now is Hot Dog.

I understand everyone hates walmart for looking for these, but you gotta ask the clerks. I have seen numerous posts on here that stated the same thing that happened to me. They had none on the shelves but had boxes either in the back or by the counter in electronics. I know in my store the pegs where all full which is why they didn't put any out. Of course when the clerks have no clue of who is who in skylanders then they aren't gonna know they are any different then what is already out on the shelves or pegs. So for those that still haven't found any then either they have them in the back or by the counter or they have put them out already. I'm pretty sure all the stores have received them by now if they were going to. Could be that whichever store your going to has someone that knows who they are and is buying them up for ebay. You honestly never know. With the way they have be slow to come out in other store or the fact that they have been exclusives at only one store it makes them targets for scalpers and employees that understand the value of some rare ones. I'm aware these don't seem to be rare this case but you never know till you see how the rest of the stores do.

Asking is pointless at some stores. Sometimes you get the standard "all we got is out". Sometimes they will go "check" which translates to "go take a short break in the back while you wait". Other times they dumped them in overstock because the shelves were full(ish) and can't get to them. Other times they do actually check and they cannot be found. And still other times, stores got short changed or didn't get them in yet.

I've found the best plan if you have a "bad" Walmart is to simply go to another one rather than to hound the employees. Some stores have more room or department managers that keep stock up to date. Others just try to limit bumps and are more interested in moving TVs than figures and video games. The closest Walmart to me is terrible, but one near my son's pre-school is pretty decent - so I just swing by there after dropping my son off rather than work against the grain at the one near work.

No, I agree with you it. Was mean more for the ones that don't ask or just check the shelves and pegs for them. Its also good to try different clerks when your there. You might find one that has a clue and is willing to help. I have a few that I know not to ask and a few that actually seem to care and go the extra mile to help. But like you said each store is different.

My experience when asking Wal-Mart staff about Skylanders has never been positive. The usual response is "Did you look in the Skylander section?" and then the person will walk over there to look. I look in the electronics and toy sections, since I've noticed them in that section in both Wal-Marts and Targets. I'll just go to another Wal-Mart vs asking the staff.

Today a lady in the Games section actually went into the back to look. Did she really look or went to get coffee, I'll never know but she said nothing was there. Most time they say whatever is there, is what they got. It all depends. I, for example, have no compaints with Gamestop yet most people here despises them. It all depends on the person you happen to talk with that day.

it really does depend on who you get. I asked one lady at the walmart I don't normally go to and she said she wasn't sure. I showed her a picture of what she looked like and she said she would go check. She came back out and said she was really sorry but they didn't have any. she seemed like she was about ready to cry since she didn't have any. So either she was really playing me or she actually was trying to help. Not sure but at least she checked. Seeing as the only confirms are more up north I don't think they have made there way down here yet, but it was worth a try to ask.

Wal-mart in Willow Grove, PA had nothing new...but they did have 2 Series 1 Zooks. The TRU a block away had both Freeze Blade and Trap Shadow.


Anyone else notice how hard it is to find Series 3 characters? Trying to find a Dune Bug, Hyper Beam Prizm Break, or Horned Whirlwind is tough...I see Cynder and Smolderdash every now and then though.

I'm in Boynton Beach, Florida. I haven't had any sightings yet either. So far most of the sightings have been in the North East part of the country. I'd give it another day or two before she makes it down here.

I've seen posts of sightings in Virginia. I live in the middle of 5 Walmarts, 3 of which are supercenters, but I still can't find fire bone hot dog. Only 1 of the 5 Walmarts got ONE box of Wave 4 a few day ago and it was a smaller store. I've been checking daily. It seems odd. Do you think TRU will really have these on Sunday? The store manager mentioned that he had a memo about new figures on Sunday, but he had no idea which ones, or if they were actually the new swappers instead.
