I honestly didn't care and wasn't going to pay eBay prices for the vault but when i saw the BB ad i figured why not, anyway just got out and after nearly 30 min of searching they can't find the vaults so good luck to those of you going for them i am on call for when they finally find them. Stupid Skylanders addiction.

They probably didn't have them in yet, mine didn't. They had 9 coming in, but weren't in stock yet, the salesperson looked it up for me. She also did a little bit of checking for me as well. Unfortunately, we already have all of them except Wham-Shell, so there isn't anything to get for $25, and the strategy guide doesn't count (my son loves those things and it has stickers too, I figured that plus a single would cover it but nope) because she tried to ring it up. The Volcanic Vault comes up as $49.99 (so does the T-Shirt) unless you ring $25 worth of qualifying Skylanders merchandise on the same ticket, then it zeroes out (she did it by looking up the SKU, just to check).

The BB guy called me about 1 hour later and found the vaults, I don't know if mine are doing if wrong or what, but they didn't have any sort of box or SKU for the vaults. In fact he showed me their corporate email stating that they could NOT be sold separately. I actually did buy the Strategy Guide and one figure and not only did I get 15% off the guide since the system registered the figure as the game, but he just handed me the vault from there as the total came to 25.98. I am guessing this was obviously not the correct procedure, but I'm happy. Good luck to everyone else.

I know ebay is ebay, but I just don't get this. It's so insane. If they waot maybe a month or two they'll get this for $10 just like all the other ones.

Wow. From the sounds of it, my Best Buy guy might have done a real bad thing.

He just handed me a free Volcanic Vault. I asked about buying it by itself, he said no, we talked a little more (he was looking up something else for me), then he tossed me one and thanked me for coming in.

Pretty awesome trip. :D

Yeah, and people don't realize (or maybe they do) that Wham Shell is pretty regularly available in Australia. It's not like some super rare figure, you just have to have an Australian connection until they release him here in a couple weeks. I guess the urge to finally have a complete collection is worth that much to someone...

I found an Ignitor, Zook, and Lightning Rod at the Movie Trading Co. at Belt Line and Preston in Dallas. These were all in the locked display case that usually houses the vintage console displays. I was surprised to see all three together like that since I'd given up on trying to track them down for now. They still had a couple each of Zook and LR as of Sunday.

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.

Fucking A - just when I stopped checking regularly. I did check really early this morning though. I'm just down to like every other day now though ;).

It shows Ignitor as $8.99 on the search page but is sold out when you click on the link. So I guess I just missed that. Same with Lightning Rod now by the way - you must have just barely gotten in on that Confoosius.

Dark Spyro is only sold in the 3DS Starter Kit. Anyone who says its not available in the states is full of crap.

I suppose I should wait for the next 3-pack to try to find Camo & Warnado, seeing as how it's been a futile effort so far. But then I'd have 1 too many Ignitors. Bah.

TRU's exclusivity on Dragon's Peak has ended, I just picked one up at the Best Buy in Frisco, TX. Keep an eye out over the coming days as I was just at a couple of Best Buy's yesterday and didn't see these. I also found a Zook at a Frisco Target and a Voodood at a different Frisco Target yesterday.

My Best Buy also had no clue about the Volcanic Vault. On sunday, took them 20 minutes of looking before they realized they never got them. Called again today and only two stores way far away had any

The DS game uses a different structure for checking characters in and out. Put the character back on the base and check them back into the game. The figure will receive the updated level information (from the 3DS), and then it should appear in the PS3 going forward.

Are the Volcanic Vaults going to remain BB exclusive? The guy at my local store gave me the last two they had and I didn't know what a reasonable trade request would be for the extra. I don't want to sell it but I have everything except Camo and Warnado (and Wham Shell of course). I haven't bothered with any legendary variants (or Blue Bash) yet either but some of you guys seem to have more inside information and that's why I was wondering what kind of offers I should expect if I put it on the block.

Thanks goes to this post in the TRU Legendary 3-pack thread:

I preordered all 3. That just leaves Ignitor and I'm done till Giants comes out.

Got 1 of each for pre-order. Same with me still just need Ignitor. As soon as the 3-packs hit with Camo/Warnado/Ignitor there will be even more loose Ignitors going around, just like Cynder with this last 3-pack.

Do you still have that extra triple pack available? :)


@nbballard, I'm either misunderstanding what you're saying, or I'm doing it wrong :lol: either way, it isn't too big of a deal. Just adds more to my console experience.
