Shit, got it free at the Times Square event a few weeks ago. I had no idea they were going for so much on eBay - I would've sold that sucka in a heartbeat.

Yeah you really missed out on that cash grab. I would have done the same thing.

I can't believe I paid $7.5 for it... TRU in Time Square is selling them, limit to ONE per customer, which is fine by me. TRU is charging a whoopee $18.99 for one! Can you believe this?! So with B1G1 40%, you're essentially bumping to normal $14.99 (but you have to buy two). STUPID! I have a $10 off reward coupon for Skylander, so knocked down a bit, then those stupid remaining reward money over the holiday. Anyhow, not going to buy from TRU if I can avoid it.

I dont think I'll tell the boy I got it. I think I'll put it on his nightstand after I get it and let him wake up to her sitiing there.


Grab a USB wall charger and a portal, plug the portal in and place it on his nightstand with Ninjini on it after he goes to sleep, then wake him in the middle of the night and enjoy the transition from horror to excitement in less than 30 seconds.

lol, that's a great idea! He's 4 1/2 years old so that should be a huge surprise for him. He seriously asks me about her everyday, even though I've told him 100 times not until all the snow is gone (spring).

I should record the whole thing and post it here. :D

Thanks! I refreshed for about 10 minutes and it popped up for me. Its backordered until march 1st, thats fines with me though. I dont think I'll tell the boy I got it. I think I'll put it on his nightstand after I get it and let him wake up to her sitiing there. Thanks again!!:bouncy:


Glad some folks were able to take advantage of it. I had no clue Amazon was going to carry it so soon since the TRU email made it seem like it was a timed exclusive to TRU. Happened to have a link saved to Ninjini, guess it was good to have it lol. Mine just switched to shipping soon so maybe yours will as well.

Decided to stop by TRU before work today. No Ninjini at 10:03 when I got there, just three employees bitching to themselves how that "stupid email was going to result in people asking all day if we have one specific Skylander we didn't even get any shipment of."

lol... Where was this at? I think it's funny about the phone calls, I remember when Giants first came out, I couldn't get any damn service because the damn phone was ringing too damn much.

I picked up two of them today at TRU, I don't know what I should do with the second one.

This guy never says how much he paid for his ripoff Ninjini, but I'm sure it well into the hundnerds:



How come his portal glows all around? Mine only glows on the top and bottom (mine is from Giants 360)


I think it's just the lighting. Or he bought his portal from china and it uses cheap transparent plastic. China on ebay will screw you everytime. I do like how he was going to contact activision about something not released yet.

I already have the regular Hot Dog, but he's kinda cute, so it's tempting...

If anyone wants to hook me up with a Ninjini, let me know!

I gave Ninjini to my 5-year-old as a reward for being good at school and let him play yesterday afternoon before dinner. He was playing for less than an hour when I saw he already had the character leveled up to 7, lol.

mine shows shipping soon as well with a delivery estimate of march 6th. I have prime so that puts it shipping Monday if that estimated date is correct. I've had back ordered skylanders ship before the "in stock" date in the past do it could ship today or tomorrow possibly.

The first round of giants starter packs from Wal-Mart (the sets with the glow in the dark Cynder) also came with "glow in the dark" portals made with a translucent housing like that.

Im prime also and have the same estimated delivery date. From my experience with prime, if something ships out by noon on thursday, it gets upgraded to one day and I always get it on Friday. Hopefully thats the case here. I cant wait to surprise the boy with her (more excited he'll stop asking me everyday when he'll be getting her :lol:)

That sounds like my kids. They ask me daily if I found her yet because they know I look online. My son heard about swap force the other day at school and told me about. I told him I haven't heard of it and he hasn't asked about it again. If I told him the truth then I would be hearing about swap force everyday until it came out.

The day they announced swapforce I told my wife there goes another $300 at least.

My kids have no interest (at the moment at least) in Disney Infinity, though.

Thanks for reminding me, turns out I had a $20 gift card, so I picked up two. Also, noticed a few of the Giants figures are down to $6-7 on Amazon, more common figures, but cheaper than retail.

On topic, I wonder what the chances are finding Ninjini tomorrow? No ToysRUs within 50 miles of here. Any other stores confirmed for getting these? Just Amazon and TRU?

TRU should be empty of Ninjini. Mine sold out by noon, luckily I went at 10am.

Wal-Mart has its new Molten Hot Dog, so that may mean its slowly getting in the new wave. I called a few GameStops and they know they're out, but they haven't seen any yet.

Check all over if you want, but don't hold your breath... wait a week or two and it'll be in stock in a few places.

Edit: my Walmart had piles of Molten Hot Dogs... And that was about it. :/

Congrats to all you who managed to get a Ninjini. I have a friend who has been itching for one. I can't believe this artificial drought Activision has created. What a shame. This whole thing is very reminiscent of the Beanie Baby craze!!!

DONE. :D

Picked up a Ninjini, also picked up another single with the B1G1 40% off. Ninjini + single + ships + tax = ~$30... in my mind worth the extra $5 to not have to call every Gamestop for the next month.

Too bad I can't use Shoprunner on anything useful at TRU.com.
