Tigger happy is the most annoying character.

Btw, what are people's favorite characters? I finally got Cynder and it's ok. I think I need to level up the alternate attack more. It's pretty weak at this point.

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.

Trigger Happy.


Hope to have a Legendary Trigger Happy join him soon, but I'm not too worried if I can't find him right away.


I found a Drobot at the last Target I stopped by today. The TRUs in my area are all outta packs, so it's not likely I'll be able to get in on the starter pack deal they have going...which is kind of a bummer.

Instead of trying to collect them all, I'm just trying to get all the dragon-type characters, so out of the ones that are currently available, I think I'm really only missing Bash at this point from what I know.


I wiped my file and 3 starter characters and I'm working on my 2nd playthrough of Skylanders now. It's still fun. :)

Yeah, not to fond of him either. I leveled up his "pot" and he's decent, but I think the other route would have been better. Fortunately the Legendary figs are a way around that without wiping them and starting over(or resorting to buying a complete duplicate).

Btw, what are people's favorite characters?


Stealth Elf & Voodood are complete beasts leveled up. I've done every challenge available (released characters) for Stealth Elf and nearly all of them for Voodood. Steal Elf has a 98/100 speed. :lol:

I wiped my file and 3 starter characters and I'm working on my 2nd playthrough of Skylanders now. It's still fun. :)


Why not just start a new save game? Without all the figs released, there's no way you have gotten 100% in-game completion(not achievements).

Talked the wife into hitting TRU this morning. She said they had about 20 Legendary Trigger Happy figures. Had her grab two.

That was easy enough thanks to WhatsYoFlava's heads up. Hopefully we'll get word on Dragon's Peak sometime soon since it's a March exclusive to TRU.

My favorite is Ghost Roaster, followed by Drobot.

My least favorite is Wrecking Ball, followed by Eruptor.

The legendary characters I could care less about. I just want all of the characters, not their alternate colored counterparts too (even though I do have both Spyro and Dark Spyro...).

I think they look cooler in game, but they should have done different molds for them not just a paint job.

Legendary Trigger Happy at least has "exclusive powers," whatever that means. Guess I'll find out later. :)

Well, I decided I'd reset my characters and try out their alternate skills. When I reset them, I noticed that their stats go back to as if they were brand new, but none of the treasure chests or legendary treasures had come back.

So, I figured I'd just start the whole game over and that way I'd get more money as I go through the entire game instead of grinding the same level over and over for money and exp. At least this way, I'd get to watch the cut scenes again and I'd be able to look for some of the assorted secrets which I missed the first time around.

I've already leveled up my 3 starter Skylanders and have been having a much easier time than the first time I played through the game, but have been having fun just the same.

Also, I change my mind about Trigger Happy being my favorite character, Gill Grunt's secondary path is much better and easier with the added benefit of having an infinite water supply.

Im kinda getting tired of the "only at this store" stuff. I just finally got the 3 pack from toy r us the other day and that because I only got lucky when they had them online 2 weeks ago for 5 mins. Guess it will take me another 4 months to get there trigger happy........

Nic... But $5 shipping!? Ack. It's bad enough they are $10. That makes it $15... I think I'll just take my chances on finding it in store tomorrow when I pass by there...

@io: $10 is pretty standard for TRU, that's $1 more than other retailers that actually get stock...and yea, the $5 shipping does suck, but I've easily spent well over $5 in gas taking random shots in the dark at various TRU stores looking for Skylanders.

I had just found out that it was posted online, so I figured I'd post the link here. Hopefully those looking for them here at least have the choice to get in on this too!

As for me, $5 shipping...screw it, I'm sleeping in today! :D

Try and find out when you get the TRU truck coming to the store, the TRU in my area are between Thursday and Friday. I went to a store yesterday and picked one up, they had 5-6 when I got there but I'm not really sure how many they started out with.

Decided to order a couple Legendary Trigger Happy. $25 including shipping. Just didn't know when I might get to our local TRUs and a must have for our collection.
Found some Cynders at Fred Meyer a couple weeks ago, and picked up 2 for my daughter's friends. We already have 2. Seems this is more of a chase figure as it appears only one is packed per box. Hence found 3 at Fred Meyer, but a load of other figures.
Still trying to get the Empire of Ice Adventure Pack. The only Skylander we don't have.

Kind of wish I had bought it now. I went to TRU today and they had about 10 total single packs (Wrecking Ball, Zap, etc) and the "helpful" employee there told me Legendary Trigger Happy usually just comes with the Starter Pack and she had never seen it in a single pack :roll:. So, yeah, so much for even finding out if they had gotten them at all.

I signed up for an email alert and I guess if they come back in stock I'll just buy one this time. But based on how they didn't tell me when the Legendary 3-pack came back in stock I'm assuming that won't work again either.

I'm still new to all of this, but do Skylanders figures get discontinued? Recently, I haven't seen much variety in single or 3 packs (on the rare occasions I have seen Skylanders available in stores).

Does anyone know if they still make some of the older 3 packs like Eruptor/Chop Chop/Bash or are they only available as singles now (I've only seen Eruptor recently)?

I absolutely refuse to deal with the reseller market. Thanks!

Well see more of these in shelves in the next couple of months. Just have to be patient. eBay prices are going down for them which means more of them are entering the market but alot of people are still hunting them everyday so you won't see much of them just yet.

They certainly do make them - got lucky and picked this one up last week from GoHastings for MSRP - I also refuse to pay more than retail on them, and I won't do the retail markups, either.

Every other figure set I've gotten has been from Amazon, which came as a result of checking some bookmarks I made.

Just take a look every now and again and they'll show up, either as 3-packs or singles. They're out there.

For those who missed out last time, Legendary Trigger Happy is now available for in-store pickup, be sure to click "select a store" on the right and just punch in your Zip Code to see if there are any near you. Good luck!


Thanks! Just ordered one in a store by me. Going to ask my Mom to pick it up for me lmao (I'm 23 -_-)

Haha, yes. I will never grow up!

What's funny is I showed my Mom the gun I got for the Move last week and she goes "Don't you have enough toys already?". Can't wait to see what she says when I send her to TRU and she gets this!

I usually pay her to do stuff for me though. I work 10 hours a day and just don't have the time.


EDIT:

Just won Whirlwind on EBay for $10+shipping. Bid $10 just to see what happened, no one else bid. Don't know if this is a good deal or not, but NO stores EVER have Skylanders in stock around me. Went to TRU ONCE because I took off from work and they had EVERYTHING. But that was when I wasn't into it and I picked up nothing :(

Thanks for the heads-up. The same store where we got the Legendary pack a couple weeks ago lists Legendary TH as in stock. Ordered it and will pick it up tomorrow, after my Mass Effect 3 run.

If there are some additional Legendary TH in stock and anyone would like me to grab one, PM me.

For the record, I'm nearing 40 and and play with these things. Never gonna grow up, no way. Damned fun and the only game my wife enjoys playing, which is reason enough. Then again, it's kinda business-oriented, too...kinda.

I'm not a usual TRU shopper. If the site has no option to pick up for that store (out of inventory), does that mean there's definitely no stock at that store? Or should I go take a chance and run to the store.

I'm not a usual TRU peep, either - but a couple weeks ago, there were plenty of things in stock that were not listed as 'not available for pickup'. So it's not definitely out of stock, no. Just no comfort that it's actually in stock.

That said, their inventory management is pretty near the bottom of the list - Best Buy's is miles better, if that's any reference.
