I'm sorry if I offend you but I'm going to assume you payed a lot of money for the variants and if that were the case couldn't you buy some proper shelves instead of having the shitty ones you made. Great collection, a little overkill for me but great to see there is a completsionist.


What is wrong with his shelves?

Anyone seen a release date yet for Ninjini?

Also what about legendary chill and molton hot dog?

I did see that molton hot dog will be a walmart exclusive though.

Molten Hot Dog is slowly showing up at Wal-Mart as we speak, already a ton of listings on eBay.

I think I'm going to pass on Skylanders:Aerosmith. The swapping gimmick seems interesting in theory, but they'd really have to work very hard to make sure that X w/ fire feet is significantly different than X w/ water tentacles. I'm not saying that they can't do this, but if they're rushing out the new game so that they can shove the new figures on the shelves long enough to tide people over until they rush out the new new game; I don't see that happening.

Unfortunately that doesn't mean that I won't buy my favorite characters' new figures if I like how they look :cry:

Thanks for the heads up! I wont be able to go in the monring, hopefully I can get one during my lunch break. The release of this one being so low key and sudden might work to my advantage in being able to snag one lol. When is Gamestop getting her in?

Yup, but you tend to save money overall getting the three packs. However, if you are looking for the Lightcore versions of them, aside from one exclusive pack from Target, they are normally only sold separately.

I got the e-mail about Ninjini hitting the TRU store shelves tomorrow so I'll be there.

I'm nowhere near that dedicated. Although I will stop by over lunch and see if any of them are still sitting there. Even then, I'm not sure that I'll buy one if it's available. :D

Yeah you pretty much had to be there an hour before opening to get it, I'm sure. Thats what I did.

I didn't realize that they were still doing the buy 1 get 1 40% off deal. That made me even more disappointed about watching a TRU employee (on the clock) walk behind the tablet kiosk, grab the last two Ninjini's in the store, and walk over to the checkout counter to buy them. :roll: It reminded me once again why I stopped collecting action figures. More often than not, the variants/rare/valuable figures never make it to the shelves in the first place.

Anyway, they had hordes of Thumpbacks and Eye-brawls so I gladly picked them up on sale. They had Hot Head too, but I'll wait for a bxgx deal once Ninjini is commonly available. That just leaves Lightcore Shroomboom, Lightcore Hex, Legendary (Lightcore?) Chill, and possibly Molten Hot Dog for me.

Not yet. To my knowledge, Spyro, Wrecking Ball, Drobot, Zap, lightcore Hex, lightcore Chill, lightcore Pop Fizz, and non bundled versions of Hot Dog, Jet-Vac, and Shroomboom have yet to come out.

I bought two Ninjini and took advantage of the b1g1 40% off. I was first in line but I waited almost an hour. A lot of pissed off people, there was four of us in total that bought 2 a piece in the 10 total that they received.

Ah I see. I was able to get a ninjini off amazon about 20 minutes ago. She keeps going in and out of stock. Glad I was able to since I couldn't make it down to tru this morning.

And it was but that's pretty low to get 2 when you obviously knew the policy. I would have been pissed too.

If only I could have been lucky to get one on Amazon instead, as soon as I showed a video to my daughter she had to have it. She still picked school over going to TRU though so I had it waiting for her when I picked it up.

Sounds like somebody that couldn't get one.... sigh.... I was there waiting for an hour, not my fault if people decide to get there 10 minutes before the store opens. I could have taken all of them if I wanted, the manager on duty said no limit.

There's no way I would have bothered going to TRU but I wish I knew there was a chance Amazon would have them. Right now the cheapest on Amazon is $65! Amazon usually doesn't seem to get them at all until much later than other stores - seems odd for them to get in on this "preview" shipment. In other news, my extra Swarm came in from Amazon today. Even though we already had one, I couldn't pass up $2.99.

A week ago I was lucky enough to stumble into a Fred Meyer when they had B2G1 on Skylanders and picked up Thumpback, Eye Brawl, and Lightcore Shroomboom for $30 total. That's the first time in a long time that I've gotten new release figures on any sort of sale.

I stood in line just like you and I did get one. For myself. And now you made yourself look like a huge jerk.

Picked up Molten Hot Dog today from Walmart. My son was so excited...played through several levels with the pup this evening. However, my boy has a slight case of "gotta catch them all" and is now wanting the original Hot Dog. Does anyone know if there is going to be an individual release of Hot Dog or is he staying in the three pack? I need to know how much to tell him to save up.


Btw...I think this was the first skylander that I paid full price for and I must say he is quite cool. I really like the figure design and he is a blast to play with in game. Now I just need to find a good price on Eye-Brawl and Thumpback (the JCP clearance this winter spoiled me ;) )

I had no luck yesterday trying to find either a Molten Hot Dog or a Legendary Chill. I realize that Legendary Chill just started showing up yesterday, but I want to get it as soon as it hits the shelves. The only Legendary character that's still on shelves around here is Legendary Trigger Happy. Legendary Everything Else has vanished and has yet to return.
