wow, if Best Buy is miles better, I would drive to TRU with Legendary Happy Trigger and expect it to be closed down.

My understanding is that not all TRU participate in the store pick-up program so it will show as out of stock.

Hey, just a quick question and I apologize if it has already been covered, but with the Best Buy exclusive item, does it not come in the Mega Pack bundle? I received the bundle as a gift and it was purchased from Best Buy but it did not come with the exclusive item. It just seems kind of weird to me that they wouldn't include with with the more expensive bundle and I have only seen it at Best Buy so far, so I wasn't sure if I was supposed to get it or not.

I'm still working my way through the game, I'm on chapter 8 right now, going to play chapter 9 tonight, but I take a lot of time in each level, so I'm not rushing through it... it is already getting challenging, so I need to work on leveling my characters up some... but I'm loving the game!

I am still trying to find the Empire of Ice adventure pack, I was lucky enough to get a backorder for the last element I needed, air, from Amazon. It took over a month to actually get it, but at least I have all of the elements now. So hopefully I can find the Empire of Ice adventure pack and since I will be prepared this time the Dragon's Peak as well.

I believe the Volcanic Vault was exclusive to the starter packs only at Best Buy. There is a sticker in the box indicating the exclusive item was inside. I think you the Mega Packs didnt have them.

Thanks, that is kind of what I figured... kinda stinks they wouldn't include it with the Mega Pack when you buy it from Best Buy... no biggy, probably would have never used it anyway, but still would have been cool to have.

Thanks again

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 - why couldn't they have done this originally though :bomb:.

Well, there does appear to be one store with it but it is the furthest one away from me and I don't think I can get up there within 5 days. I guess I can order it and just not get it if it shows up somewhere else in the next few days. I assume they just cancel and refund if you don't pick up.

Sick as a dog and doped up on Nyquil at the moment...barely coherent really, not sure if I'm just imagining this...it could be a cruel dream...or if this is real life...

Blue Bash for preorder!

In for one! Even though shipping is $5, it's good to secure one just incase it sells out instore.

I wish I could say it was the Nyquil, but that's legit.

Damned if "Verified by Visa" and "MasterCard SecureCode" aren't absolute pains in the ass. Kept wanting me to confirm a password for something I never set up and wouldn't let me order...not until I pulled out Mr. Paypal Business Card. No problems there.

#-o... Why Bash though? So now I'll have 3 different versions of a somewhat crappy character ;).

I put in an order just in case - may cancel it later though...

Joystiq says the new wave is out now. I don't think that is right, but maybe they are coming out sooner then April. Several other lesser known blogs also say the new wave is out, but none of them have many details.

No, I believe Warnado (also Camo, Ignitor sold outside of 3DS starter, as well as a triple pack with all 3) are Wave 5 due in May. That leaves only Wham Shell remaining.

Anyone seen the new ones in stores today? I'm anxious about finding them fast, since once the Ebayers get the scent it'll be ages before I can track down the figures.

Was at Best Buy and Target today and all I saw were empty shelves :(

Scoured four different stores today, Best Buy, Target, Walmart and TRU. All empty shelves. I'm in the Willow Grove, PA area. Haven't seen many skylanders since January.

I'll keep my eyes peeled. Going to TRU everyday this week during my lunch break..I'm either gonna look like a devoted dad or creepy uncle. Either way, I'll keep checking the area. Gonna add K-Mart to my list of stores to check regularly.

My experience today when going to a far-away TRU to pick up a Legendary Trigger Happy I reserved for store pickup:

Best Buy - empty
TRU - empty except for about 12 Legendary Trigger Happy
Gamestop - empty
Target - empty
Walmart - empty

I'm on the hook to find more Skylanders because apparently I'm responsible for my nephew becoming addicted to them. My wife's parents bought an extra starter set from me and gave it to my nephew. Tonight as I was heading out I got the following message on Facebook from my sister-in-law:

Since you have successfully addicted my kid to Skylanders and there are no characters available in this whole darn city!! Do you happen to have 1 or 2 we could buy from you?


:lol:. I feel bad now so while I was out to pick up the Trigger Happy I was also looking for some for her (as I don't have any extras just sitting around). Fred Meyer had Whirlwind, Double Trouble, and even Cynder a few days ago but I passed on them having already got those for my kids. Had I known... Didn't some CAGs post just a few days ago saying that they were everywhere and thus the shortage was officially over? I guess not so much ;).

In particular, I haven't seen an Empire of Ice pack in ages - since like the first couple of weeks it was out.

Looks like I just missed the Flameslinger/Stump Smash/Drobot pack being in stock at Amazon. It still shows the $19.99 price but says not available when I add to cart - must have been in stock just recently.

TRU will be holding any new figures until 3/21. They will distribute tickets prior to store opening and will limit 1 figure per customer until all tickets are redeemed. You will not be able to choose your figure until you make your purchase. If any figures remain, they can be sold to whoever in any quantity.

Also, all remaining singles and 3 packs will be 25% off next week. All starter packs will be $34.99

Sadly, your probably seeing them right before some re-seller swoops in and nabs 'em all. Checked today, Willow Grove TRU empty and K-mart empty. Didn't have time for other stores. Will post if I find any in the area.

Been wondering whether I should even mention this at all since it's not exactly good/flattering news, but I'd been keeping an eye on goHastings.com as per another user's suggestion for getting some Skylanders figures.

Only thing is, when they do get some stock in, they mark up the price of their stock by as much as 125% ...in particular the Eruptor/Chop Chop/Bash 3 pack for $48.99 (from around $22...which was already overpriced) and that's not even factoring in shipping!

Pretty ridiculous I think, but I guess that's one way to keep your items in stock.

Yep, saw GoHastings doing the last week. Why they price it so all over the place is anyone's guess.

That said, I did snag the Eruptor/ChopChop/Bash tri-pack from them a couple weeks ago for $19.99, then added some filler games and accessories to hit $40 during their free shipping sale.

So...just keep an eye out. Something may still pop in at MSRP from time-to-time.

Ever since GoHastings started selling on Amazon, a lot of their prices have been set according to the market rate among third-party sellers there. They have done this exact same thing with many out of print books over the last year.

Gamestop.com has some 3-packs for sale online currently:

http://www.gamestop....ger-stump/98979

Came out to $25 and some change after shipping - which is actually cheaper than I would've paid at TRU after tax.

@TheShepherdSauce: Awesome! Thanks! I just got in on that deal!

It was a good thing I checked before heading out. I had called around earlier and found another store near me had the Whirlwind/Double Trouble/Drill Sergeant 3-pack and had them put it on hold for me, so I was just about to head out the door to pick one up, but really, I'm in no condition to drive yet... stupid illness..., but besides the $3.50 spent on shipping, I would've definitely used more in a round trip in gasoline. :P
