Figures, I finally found a "Darklight Crypt" new at a store and the e-bay value has tanked. I see them now going for around $50.00 where a few weeks ago $100+ was the least you could touch a sealed one for.

They really went down in the last week or so. I picked one up last week and checked the values, they had just went down slightly, but within the last week, they've went down to around $50. I wouldn't doubt they go up. With the hope that they may be coming back out, I think people have decided to hold off spending $100 on one. For the most part, everyone that has found one has only found 2 (which is how many would come in a case) and they're gone quickly. It will be curious to see if they come back in stock. Whether this is a re-release or Activision (or Walmart, for that matter, as that's where they seemed to have been found) happened to still have some lying around in the warehouse and sent out a final shipment. It's not out of the question. I saw pegs full of Molten Hot Dog at one Walmart months after they had pretty much disappeared. (which was after the first shipment).

I found mine at a Target and it was the only one it sort of caught me by surprise when I found it on the shelf.

 

I am hoping once Swap Force hits the values will go up at least to $100 range again.

This dude found one in the wild. He's located in Canada, though. I don't think there has been any reports of it being found in US yet, perhaps when it closer to October is when we'll see more of them in stores.

Ugh my local stores are so horrible with this franchise, they have literately 30+ of one figure in stock, and that figure is series 2 cynder which I already have thanks to the giants starter pack. Then they have flashwing, whirlwind and a couple lightcores. Do they just ship large shipments of one figure to the stores? Is anyone else experiencing this, also we don't seem to get new shipments of anything here regarding figures, its just S2 cynder ad nauseum. I hope this pumpkin figure is available from a retailer where I can order online with free shipping due to the fact that my local stores don't seem to be getting any new skylanders in at all.

I have seen reports that they have been found in the US, mostly in the west coast. So they should be popping up, soon.

That's pretty much the experience I have seen, especially at Target. The problem is that the figures that are left are the ones that people didn't want (or already had with the case of Cynder which was overproduced, imo, since it was in the starter pack which could normally be found cheaper than the portal owners pack). Since the stores' inventories only show that they have x number of Skylanders, they don't order as many. It's not just with Skylanders. Years ago, I used to collect Star Wars and other figures and it was the same things. It was hard to find certain figures because the pegs were full of the junk that was overproduced (i.e. Stormtroopers & Battle Droids) and stores wouldn't order any more as they didn't have the space. The Walmart near where I work occasionally gets some SSA stuff (which is where I have found Dino Rang, Wham Shell and now Darklight Crypt recently) but the one near my house hardly gets anything in because they have pegs full of the same junk that's been there for months. The Target near my house (I rarely get to the one on the other side of town) has had the same Flashwings & Cynders for months with no new stock. It's a bit ridiculous. They actually have some peg space for them, but they never get anything new. That's what really bugs me that they brought Flashwing back for Swap Force, as that will mean even more Flashwings filling our pegs.

Ok I called GameStop today about the pumpkin eye brawl and since they already have them all reserved none for me I guess however I am going to another store tonight if they don't have it or they don't let me order then I guess I won't have to spend 14.99 for a single action figure which I am more than wiling to do because I actually like the pumpkin eye brawl and I don't have eye brawl yet. I just found out about this figure 1-2 days ago and I don't feel this is important enough to run out to put reserves on figures that you only have 1-2 days if that to reserve before the only shipment comes in.

That is the situation at my Target, and they have space on the pegs too for new figures they just don't get them in. They also have an end cap in the toy dept filled with cynders. I don't understand why they don't send a more varied mix, I can't see anyone buying a single cynder as he is in the starter pack which 99% of skylanders fans have unless for some reason they didn't get giants and they are buying him to play in Spyro's. Unless people buy up all the good figures the day the shipment comes in but they should send a more even mix to the stores. Then activision would get more sales instead of eBay getting the most sales. Well the only thing our target has is flashwing and cynder and 1-2 lightcores. I find it really pointless to buy the same figure twice regarding what series. They should remake figures like boomer and wham shell instead of remaking what is already in series 2, I would really like a wham shell but I will probably never get one unless I find it at a yard sale...

I went to a Walmart that had Spyro's figures and picked up a double trouble for 7.98 which is the only figure they had outside of the usual starter pack reissues the only place I have seen adventure packs is in Sam's club, no stores seem to have them here. I went and bought the level figures really cheap on eBay and I am satisfied.

TRU will have them on 9/22, or before since some stores just put things out without reading the stickers on the box.

West Coast Wal-Mart stores are starting to see Pumpkin Eye-Brawl with most of the sightings occurring in California. I picked him up last night since Gamestop couldn't give me a straight answer on when they'd get him. They also charge $1 more than other stores and wouldn't accept the $1 Frito-Lay coupon.

Managed to get one at GS, thankfully one store here had some that were not preordered. Doubt I could go with other stores as they will be sold out here.

The "best preorder deal" on SWAP Force is back in-store at TRU until 9/21. Free Lightcore Hex and a free figure (up to $10.99) when you pick the game up. Additional free figure comes via email coupon that you sign up for when you preorder.

Btw, for those that were excited about getting this figure:  He does not show any of this detail 'in game'.  In the game, he shows up as a regular/standard eye-brawl.  Not worth getting, if that's the case (at least for me).

 I knew that as well but the kids like the different figures even if its just a paint job.

 

I don't see why the developers can't put out a patch to make it show up with the same paint job in the game.

Giant figures are 2 for $22 at TRU this week with Pumpkin Eye-Brawl pictured in the ad.

 

Also when I went to TRU Saturday morning I found a metallic Eye-Brawl sitting on the front of a peg. He quickly came home with me.

Picked up a pumpkin eye brawl at the gamestop on ga tech campus while I was at my OSHA class down there.  Had quite a few of them.  By the time I got back home, they only had one left at the local GS.  So if you haven't found one yet, probably should start checking soon.

From everything I have read, the Wii doesn't support patching like Xbox and Playstation, so they base their development on all the games on the Wii. They aren't able to patch the game because of that.

I am trying hard to avoid the Pumpkin Eye-Brawl since it has no game difference than the regular version. We still have about 18-22 guys still unopened. I am really hoping with the release of Swap Force the values of some of the guys and sets jump back up. I have a few of the variants' I would love to get rid of.

 

With Swap Force, which is one of my sons Xmas presents, I am only going to worry about getting one of each swappable guy for each element this time.

Anyone know if Activision is going to be having any female Swap-Force Characters? Some of the new standard females look pretty sweet, but all of the new Swap-Force figures I've seen on the Skylanders site are male.

 

Also I've seen the Pumpkin Eye-Brawls at Toy's R Us in South St Louis County.

I just found a darklight crypt for $17.98 at Sam's club, heads up if your Sam's has gotten a new shipment, they will probably only get one per store but this would be the price nationwide I assume.

I found one today at Kmart and resisted! It looks cool but I could deal without him.
