Considering those "chapters" are already on disc, it's not fair to compare it to DLC. They are very weak, so it's best to just view the pack as a figure purchase not for the level.


Agreed. I have all three of the Adventure Packs, and all of the levels are underwhelming. Unfortunate that the only way you can get those characters are by buying the pack.

I found Voodood, Prism Break, and Boomer as singles today so I decided Fuck it and buy them. I'm tired of searching for the 3 pack. If anybody in Houston is looking, the Wal-Mart and Target in Humble near 59 have lots of singles and 3 packs in stock.

just played the ice expansion with my daughter, I like the character and the my daughter really likes interacting with the portal as much as possible, so the power ups are nice, but the level would be very weak as a standalone dlc for the price.


I actually enjoyed the Pirate Sea level quite a bit. Darklight Crypt and Empires of Ice were both pretty boring though.

Anyone know if the Slam bam pack is one per case? Been having a hard time tracking it down. My targets have the other adv packs just not that one. Also I have a cynder (nib) that I'm willing to trade for Chop chop.

2 Empire of Ice
2 Pirate Seas
2 Darklight Crypts

Just opened my starter pack today and played with my 4-year-old. I enjoyed helping him play quite a bit, it seems he'll have a good time with this. Maybe at some point I'll play it myself, maybe not. It's simple but fun gameplay...I'm not entirely sure I want to back off my statement about the game being boring, I guess it entirely depends on how you play it.

That said, me being an addictive figure collector is still going to benefit my kids for the foreseeable future.

I've been able to find pretty much everything at Gamestop, and it's worked well since I've been paying all with credit. The only ones that are out there right now that I'd still like to pick up are Eurptor and Igniter...and probably one or two more I'm not thinking of at the moment.

I would never play it by myself, I think it's pretty boring and generally too easy for an adult with some surprisingly and unnecessarily difficult puzzles occasionally(like the locks in the crypt level). My daughter, on the other hand, cannot get enough of it(which means I have played a lot).

I called a Target this afternoon and asked If they had the 3 pack containing Dinorang, Hex, and Zap, the only ones my daughter was missing. The Employee said he had one. I asked If he could hold It for me till I got there, I was about ten minutes away. He said sure . I arrive at the store and tell him I'm there for the 3 pack. He says okay I got It here in the back so I follow him to the Skylander Rack. When we arrive I see a parent and her 2 kids with the pack. He says Oh she must've found it, I hid it behind all the other 3 packs. ARRRRRRGGGGGGGG !!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone know if Target uses the same SKU for every skylander? I want to return one but I can't figure out which receipt it is.

(Obviously I've been buying too many skylanders.)

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

They use three different DPCIs: one for singles, one for the 3-packs, and one for the adventure packs. There is probably a good chance you could return a single figure using any receipt that has a single on it, which you can tell by price, $7.99, or the specific DPCI, 207-00-0041.

Thanks. The DPCI of the 3 packs must be 207-000-0047 then.

I've heard from a few others that Target employees arent actually allowed to told items for customers behind the counter. Not sure where I heard it....any Target employees willing to confirm?

Nothing to see here, move along!

Ignitor isn't 'technically' out yet. Sure it's in the 3DS set, but he'll be flying solo around March.

Walmart got pretty good stuff today. Finally found 2 3-packs I was missing. I got eruptor,chopchop,bash and zap,hex,dinorang! They also had wrecking ball,stealth elf,sonic boom. Yesterday they had Drobot,flames linger,stumpsmash. They also had the dark light crypt and pirates sea packs today! Seems like supply is starting to pick up. Yay! Hopefully I can get my hands on the last 3pack I'm missing which is prism break, boomer, voodood. Then I'll be all current with all available characters in the market! Come on Walmart! Get it in by next week. Hehe!

Finally had a chance to sort through what i have.
Looks like aside from ignitor, i just need zap, hex and eruptor at the moment.

Edit: And a quick trip to Target this morning remedied that :) Picked up the Hex/Zap/Dino 3-pack and the Eruptor/Chop Chop/Bash 3-pack. Apparently, I still needed Bash, too. This was actually the only money outside of gamestop credit I've had to spend on these things. Also glad I've kept all but the starter pack sealed for now since i can go return the Chop Chop and Dino-Rang doubles I have to Gamestop.

It depends on the store's STL (Store Team Leader), which is the head manager of the store. Most of them (including ours) will not allow holds on anything that is in high demand. Our store will not hold them but as soon as they stop flying off of the shelves like crazy, it'll be okay to hold them.

Every Target is different, but I do know the majority of them (especially in my district) will not hold anything in high demand. It is company-wide policy that we cannot hold anything featured in the sale ads or on clearance too, so since Skylanders are featured in the ad this week, there is a good chance they won't hold them due to that alone.

Richmond West End TRU has a new shipment in. I was in today, Saturday, and saw the following:
Whirlwind
Double Trouble
Drill Sergeant
Chop Chop
Flameslinger
3 pack with Hex, Zap, and somebody else.

Current ebay prices for Whirlwind are $15ish, pretty low IMHO.

Yeah, I got in an order last week online, promptly got a backorder notice saying the order would ride until 2/25 and then get auto-cancelled if it wasn't fulfilled by then. I got a cancellation email today. :( They must not be getting anymore.
