So is th jade flashwing like just getting to stores now?


Seems like they just got them in. I went in this morning, typed in the DCPI number into one of their price checkers (207-00-1147). It said still in stockroom, so the guy working in electronics was nice enough to go in the back and grab one for me.

Picked up a Legendary Chill at TRU, and a Jade Flashwing at Target (along with some clearance games I'm planning to profit off of). I saw 2 Ninjinis at Best Buy when I went to get Wreck-It Ralph.


I had no idea there was a Legendary Chill. My son needs Chill, so that would be a good one to get. He's been wanting some Legendary figures. He really wants Legendary Bouncer, but I never see them in the store. They have them on the website, but I hate to pay the shipping. I stopped by yesterday and they had the 3-pack (Jet-Vac, Slam Bam, & Ignitor), but I hated to spend $26 when he already has 2 of those in regular form. Maybe I'll keep an eye out for the Legendary Chill. It would be nice if they would get them in and a Ninjini while they're having the B1G1 40% off deal.

Can someone post the link to the inventory checker for the Jade Flashwing? Each time I try to look it up I'm getting invalid number.

I asked this in the Skylanders thread but I will ask it again here since this is a little more active. Does anybody know off-hand if the adventure packs from the first games got any kind of re-print? I saw some "Sunburn" and "Slam Bam" ones at my local Wal-Mart last night for $19.99 each. I didnt pull the trigger on these since we are done with the first game but I now regretting that I did. Hate the fact that they only come with one character and wasnt sure if the bonus/perk items crossed over to the second game.

The items, levels and characters all still work in giants from the adventure packs. The levels actually show up in your chapter select listing though, but are fully playable. I saw a bunch of them at Best Buy when Series 1 Giants launched, but to be honest I haven't seen them in stores since then.

So the items from the original game work in Giants? I'm not sure I've seen any around, lately, but right after Christmas, my son was looking to spend some of his Christmas money. Since he had just gotten Giants for Christmas, he was new to the Skylanders thing, and I had just heard about Slam Bam. I knew he would like him, and I ended up finding the adventure pack and the single figure at Target. I figured it would be better if he saved his money and just bought the single figure, but I didn't know what the items did or if they would work with Giants. He also keeps seeing things with the pirate ship online. I'm not sure if I could find it, but he wants it, but I wasn't sure if it would work or not. Although, I figure I might find a way to get him the original game sometime down the line, anyway, if I can find it cheap enough. I know I've seen it for $35 on Amazon (the full pack with portal and figures), but just not sure if I'm ready to pull the trigger, yet, financially, especially since I'm picking up so many figures for him for his birthday.

That isn't going to work until 3/17. Target retroactively street dated Jade Flashwing to ensure they have them when the Sales Circular goes out highlighting it. As of this morning their register will not let you buy one.

They will be out on 3/17, in all stores and in good numbers so don't get jumpy and go to eBay. It's a week away, but at least the guessing game has ended. And as I understand they will have a discount deal on the figures that week in the ad too.

I guess I should also mention Legendary Chill is a Lightcore Character.

While you're at it, mention that NY ToysRus are charging $15.00 for this figure. It's insane how bad ToysRus has gotten with this stuff.

Yeah, but let's be clear, TRU is getting all these exclusives and legendary's because they are making a killing selling them. As in, people are actually buying them at that price.

I've held back buying Skylanders at TRU unless there is a deal. I think right now they have the B1G1 40% off - that brings the price down to normal / slightly less than anywhere else.

I stopped by toys r us and picked up the legendary light core chill. I had the cashier scan the 20% off coupon on the website and got it for $10.39...not a horrible price

I got a bouncer 40% off with my ninjini. I'd be happy to let it go for 17.50 shipped(pretty sure that's breakeven for me) if anyone wanted it(cheaper than TRU on ebay or website) w/ ship and don't have tax.

Interesting...It clearly states on that coupon that it should not work for this type of item, but I guess it's YMMV.

Only problem with that is that Bouncers are everywhere, I think your better off just giving it away or exchanging it for one you don't have down the road.

EDIT: I have an extra Jade Flashwing, anybody local to Riverside want it?

He's probably talking about Legendary Bouncer, which isn't so easy to find, at least for now. As for the regular Bouncer, he's starting to become harder to find. Now that the new Giants (Eye Brawl, Thumpback, etc.) are filling the shelves (and probably the cases), it seems Bouncer has become harder to find. However, it's still available on Amazon for $10. Even though my son wants the Legendary Bouncer, I'm thinking about going ahead and ordering the regular version and putting it back for his birthday, and if I get a Legendary version before then, I'm sure I can just take it to Walmart or somewhere and exchange it.

I was wondering if the coupon might work. For one, the coupon states that it excludes video game hardware (which usually means systems) and video games. Nothing about accessories. Plus, according to the TRU website, the figures are listed under "Action Figures", so they may be considered "toys" in the system and not "video games". The really interesting thing would be if the coupon stacks with the B1G1 40% off. I know is says regular priced items, so it would exclude sale items. But since you are buying the first figure at regular price with the 2nd figure at 40% off, the 20% might still apply to the 1st figure. Might make for a really decent deal.

Also, I saw someone post in the regular Skylanders thread that next week they will be B1G1 50% off? Any word on that? I haven't seen anything else about it, so I'm not sure where they are getting that information.
