I might check there. Are they expensive though? I thought Book and Music would be because they are on everything else. I went to Book Broker but they didn't have any.

All figures at Book and Music were 7.95 and the sidekicks little boost were 5.95.

I'll probably go check tomorrow.

The link for the Frito lay site says it begins 6/30, but doesn't seem to have anything open.  What gives?

The "Coming Soon" page does not redirect to the main page, just remove that from the URL.

A little Giants to regulars question.  I've got Skylanders and I want to get one of every element to play it.  The only one I don't have is undead.  If I get the Giants starter with Cynder, can I use that one in regular Skylanders?

 

SI

Gnarly Tree Rex Singles.

Strange. I had heard that the release date was today. Some people have already seen them in stores (and it was a TRU). Of course, that doesn't mean that a store couldn't have broken street date. But holding onto them for over 2 weeks seems a bit odd. That could be the norm, though. Keep us up to date on the "Skylander event", though.

There have been some sightings of Gnarley Tree Rex at K-Marts.

Looks like Gnarly Tree Rex is pictured in the 8/4 TRU ad. They should be released then, not the 18th.

Edit: Giants figures will be on sale 2 for $22. Stores may limit one Gnarly per customer as they see fit.

Not only is there a Gnarly Tree Rex being released now it seems there will also be a Pumpkin Eyebrawl and maybe a Wicked Thumpback being released around Halloween.

I didn't initially have a plan to buy either of those Giants figs, but I will happily shell out for Halloween variants.

Serious rumor! Wicked Thumpback was rumored a long time ago, and became a running joke. Pumpkin Eyebrawl has popped up on a couple of websites for pre-order (including Sears/K-mart), but there's no official word on it. There's nothing in the code of the game for them, so if they are variants, they aren't in-game variants and may only pop up as "special" (i.e. the glow-in-the-dark figs).

Barkley was delivered yesterday.  Had a USPS sticker on it that it was unsealed at some point.  Hopefully they were shipping these out with just 1 figure in the box.

The ones I have received so far which has been four have been one to a box.

This Sunday's Best Buy ad mentions the Gnarly Tree Rex.  Is that the release date, or has any found them already?

I picked up a Gnarly Tree Rex at my local GameStop yesterday. They had 5 and said they'd had them since Sunday. Took a look at my surrounding GS locations last night and they also had plenty of him.

I saw Gnarly Tree Rex when I was shopping for blurays 3 days ago. There was only a couple of them though in a sea of skylanders figures.

Toys R Us had a crap ton of Gnarly Tree Rex when I went Sunday. I went because I finally decided to pick up a second Camo from the three pack they sell. I'll probably wait until someone has a good sale to get him. I've seen him a few places since.

 

I've received all three sets of my Giant minis that I ordered including one that I did three weeks ago.

Thanks for the info everyone.  I was able to track down Gnarly Tree Rex at Gamestop, and they had four more of them.  I was also able to find a Spyro's Adventure for $20 at Sears so my niece can have Dark Spyro.

If any of you have dropped hundreds on this series like I have, then this may interest you. The GameStop exclusive Dark Edition was announced today and I will certainly be getting this one. It may be limited, so if you are at all interested, get them preorders in. It will be available on Wii U, Wii, PS3, and 360, it is unknown yet whether or not the next gen systems will see a release for this version.

Yeah, I was thinking of holding off on Swap Force, but this edition is awesome. They have a write-up on the PS Blog too.

Think I'll end up getting the new game once it gets a good deal as honestly I'm finished with Skylanders at the moment and will probably end up selling my entire collection after completion of the new game. Wasn't going to get it but I guess you can use all your old Skylanders with it and aren't limited to the new Swaps so that's what I'll end up doing.

Just a heads up...for those who are looking for Ghost Roaster, he has been popping up, again. I found a couple at Walmart a couple of days ago and several others have been reporting seeing them at Walmart, too.

Same here.  Neither I nor my younger son even played through all of Giants (despite getting all the figures).  My older son did finish the game in the first few days but never touched it after that.

 

So this time I'll wait until I can get the sort of deal I keep seeing with Giants (from the $38 BF sale last year to the $9.xx Target clearance PS3 portal owner packs).  I'm certainly not spending $75-$100 on it up front.  That GS pack looks nice but $99.99 is a tough sell for me.
