Called and got my codes. Won on the fourth try.


Just sent away for 10 free codes. Figured I give that way a shot.

I sent out 26 letters requesting codes about a week and a half ago. With the contest ending the 16th of this month I was worried I wasn't going to get them on time. Don't wait too long to call if you don't get them.

Ok thanks I am more worried about the Rattleshake promo than the Fright Rider one.

Hmm, must be a problem where you live, but around here stores are full of them, and nobody is buying.  It simply is f__ugly, and a lazy paint job.

I like the paint job. The problem is that in game he is just regular Eye Brawl. But yea, real easy to find.

No dates yet and the list is pulled from European retailers which have been fairly accurate so far with the exception of the multipacks.

I have been hearing rumbles on a few of the Skylander Facebook pages that the Wave 3 release date at TRU is going to be on the 15th of November this Friday. Can anyone confirm or deny this? That would suck since that would the same day as the PS4 releases.

Unlikely.  It Is possible, but many of the "confirmations" if you look into the sources are just speculation that gets passed around by various people until they consider it "confirmed".  Wave 2 isn't all that common yet, nor are the Wave 2 three packs out yet.  And shelves are still loaded with Wave 1.

 

I won't believe it until prim posts a confirmation or we get a Hot Toy Alert (if one is coming it will be on the 14th in the afternoon).  Or some of them start showing up on EBay from people with connections/luck in getting stores to sell it early.  I personally have the feeling it will be mid to late December if not mid January.  It will depend on how sales do after Black Friday.  Putting more figures on the shelf when there is plenty to buy is just bloat, and pushes sales away from the ones already out - very few (percentage wise) buy everything and find themselves sitting around with nothing else to get waiting for the next Wave.

I've actually heard from 2 different people that TRU has cases of Skylanders marked for 11/15. I'm starting to think there might be more to this but I can't confirm it.

I am happy if that's true but don't like the fact that it would also be PS4 launch day. My TRU has not really been on the ball the last two Sunday Skylander/Infinity releases.

Edit:

I would like it more if it was next week that way I could get all three of the new swappable guys 3 for $35.00.

Waiting on word from prim.  Assuming you haven't seen pictures, I might think that was mistaken from the cases for Legendary Night Shift since he was street dated.

That was exactly what I thought until I heard it from a second person. I'm not holding my breath or anything but I wouldn't be surprised if Activision releases a wave on the PS4 launch day. At Gamescom Sony was the only company showing off a next gen version of SWAP Force and all the next gen b-roll that Activision has released has been from the PS4 version.

The only release TRU has planned for this coming week is Dino Rang on 11/17. My store got some wave 1 lightcore figures with a hold date of 12/1 for some reason. I'll have to look into what's going on that week.  Nothing to report as far as wave 3 goes.

Has anyone ever had a Skylander not even be recognized on the portal? This weekend I tried to use Eye Brawl, but the portal didn't even see the character. There was no response.

 

And I found out that Best Buy only has a 15 day return period, so I can't even exchange it.

What version are you playing? And is your portal stacked on or close by another portal?

Giants. Nope, portal was by itself on top of a wooden tv stand. I even switched portals to see if that was the issue.

Sounds like you'll need to contact Activision support. Unless Best Buy accepts returns on open Skylanders and it turned out the second one that you bought today was actually defective?

I really need to beat Giants on Nightmare already so I can box my entire collection up to sell. It was good fun but for me it was just a quick fad that I stupidly paid into far too much.

Prim, any word on shipments to TRU of SSA figures? I read somewhere that stores were getting a lot of them, and there have been reports of earlier waves that might possibly have Boomer. Do you know how many cases and what waves (or case breakdown if possible) of single, 3-pack, and adventure packs?

So where is everyone getting their figs on Thursday/Friday? TRU? I'm assuming it'll be available online, so I'm going to try that. I thought I read somewhere that Amazon would have a b2g1 on the figs, but I can't seem to find that again. Can anyone verify?

You can use the Portal of Power that comes with the Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack to play either Skylanders Spyro's Adventure or Skylanders Giants. All you need to do is sync the Portal of Power to your console. However, you cannot use the Portal of Power from previous games with Skylanders SWAP Force.

Since you can only get Swap Force bundled with a new portal, seems like it shouldn't be an issue.
