Yep Walmart is generally terrible about getting their stuff stocked on time. I always bug someone and have them check the back.

But it's a game. They go out on Tuesdays not Sundays... I'm sure that's the reasoning

It depends on the Walmart I'm sure but it doesn't matter. I'll go for a release of a game or product at midnight (even on Tuesday) and 90% of the time it isn't there. I ask them to check the back. They inevitably "can't find it" or "haven't gotten their shipment" so they take my name and number to call me later. So I then go to a second farther Walmart which also does not have the stuff stocked, but when I ask them to check the back they find the stuff. Happens this way for me most of the time I go to Walmart for release products.

Quick question I bought 2 of the Lone Ranger adventure packs so I could play co-op with my kid ( we have 2 starter sets pre-ordered, 2 separate Xboxes in the house). Does the crystal just unlock the level on the disc like Skylanders did ? if so I could return one because I would still have 2 figures to play on the level, The Lone Ranger and Tonto. Would this work ?


By the way it's described you have to keep them on the portal just like the characters. At least that's what one of their PR folks said in a video on YouTube.

Not sure why you need two copies of the playset. I think it comes with two characters and can do co-op out the box unless you guys want to both be the Lone Ranger, one set should do.

The playsets have to be on the portal the whole time you play it.  If you take it off, it boots you out.  We are keeping our figures in the boxes, so you can sit the playset figure in the middle on the power up disc area, and angle it to where either the lone ranger or tonto is on the player one slot.

lol exact same thing here most likely. I'm going to go check a Walmart out first to be sure, but otherwise same story.

 

How did you PM at TrU? Do you need an ad? Would an online printout of the Walmart price work?

I picked these sets up this morning at the sale price also. I bought the starter pack too, and was surprised to find that they gave me a $15 gc with it. I saw that deal online but I figured it was preorder only. So I made it out for just over $100 and a $15 card in the deal - pretty happy with that.

Tried to hit this deal at Wal Mart this morning. Had to head out that way anyway. Ended up walking out empty handed.

 

I'll have my girlfriend PM this at Best Buy later today.

Power discs are blind buys.  The TRU ones have an exclusive disc in them right now, 1 out of 10.  It's all the same one right now though.  I bought 5 today at gamestop and ended up with 3 of mickeys car, and 2 of the fish from nemo out of the batch, all others were unique.  But they do add a lot to the game, either weapons, power boosts, vehicles, or world themes.

I ordered the two 3 packs of characters and the two playsets.  Got an email that all but one character pack was ready for pickup.  The last thing they will ship and I can pickup on August 26th.

 

I'm still not even sure I want this game.  I ordered them more for the deal and then I'd think about whether I want it.  I know it is probably more a kids game, but I did play the first Skylanders.  Are there reviews up for Infinity yet?

Colma, CA target has the sidekicks 3 pack for 9.49. Don't know if it applies to all targets (1 left as of 9:15pst). Only thing left besides that we're single characters.

Thanks!. Kinda suck & waste money when you don't know what it's inside  Each Pack & keep buying it!  Well talking here is $5 plus taxes here.  How many we have to buy ??  Still i will pick up 2 packs (TRU Exclusive) later this week.  Possible i will ask the employee i able to buy more Packs & swap them later when new pack arrive!!!!

We went to our Walmart last night at midnight. I'm in Pearland Tx, the section was empty. Noone was even working electronics. We called a manager to help. He looks confused. He went to the back to find them. Brought out a starter pack and said that's all he had. So me and my friend went to the toys department, and just found the Lone Ranger set sitting there. So odds are your figures are all in the toys department, FYI.

And...just got my ready-for-pickup email from the same store whose employee said they'd not yet received their shipment. I had since then been able to go to Best Buy to PM the deal so I could also get RZ points. Now to cancel the Walmart order or let the pickup window expire.

I spent way too much blind buying on the discs but I got some interesting stuff to try out.  It's better to feel the packs though.  I was looking for circles and easily completed that set.

$30 MSRP is insane.

 

Tempted by the sale prices, but there is no way I'd pay full price for any of the sets.

the modular setting usually dont go into their computers until Saturday or Sunday so unless a manager or a decent associate is ontop of stuff(which usually they are not) it wont be set until the dept. manager comes in.

funny my local store was getting shipments daily starting this past Monday . so i believe the we havent got any shipments excuse is bull..its more like "well Walter didn't put the gaming stuff away right and we dont know where they are so you're S O L til he comes back"

so just keep trying.

Work at a WI Walmart (going back from lunch in a minute). Smaller store; we didn't get any 3-packs or adventure packs in, but I got everything ready for overnights to put out at Midnight before I left at 5pm yesterday, came in at 11am and found everything I had thrown on the cart to go out was literally exactly where I left it, untouched, from the night before.

I'd be tempted if the adventure packs added trophies, but it looks like they're copying Skylanders and making sure none of the trophies require additional figures . . . good to a point, but if I'm spending twice as much on extra figures I want some extra acknowledgement. So looks like I'm passing for now.

I had a similar experience -- one Walmart had nothing but the starter sets out, a bigger Walmart had the starter sets and single packs only, while a small run down Walmart had everything stocked properly. Go figure.

 

Anyway, I was able to pick up one of the 3-figure packs for the sale price. Thanks OP!

 

As a side note, I was also there day 1 for the Skylander launch. It was almost exactly the same sort of situation. My Best Buy didn't even know what I was talking about. Fast forward to Christmas, you couldn't find the things. Expect the same with Infinity since it's getting really good reviews. I've only seen one negative one so far.

Anyone else run into cheap 3 packs? The villains 3 pack was normal price at my store.

ykcq.jpgApparently my Walmart Supercenter (Casselberry/Winter Park?, FL, on Semoran) received *nothing.* The section's empty, waiting to be stocked, but they're still waiting for their shipment.

EDIT: FWIW, I had someone scan the shelf tag, and she was the one who told me they hadn't received their shipment. Then after returning home from having breakfast at McD's, I was able to place an in-store pickup at the same store, supposedly able to be picked up today. We'll see how that turns out.

I'll let you in on a little secret:

 

Walmart employees tend to wait until noonish before they put out new release stuff.

 

If the guy scanned it with the scannermabobber, it more than likely had a count but no bin location, which means he didn't want to be arsed to find where they are. So he told you a lie by saying that they haven't received them yet.

it looks like my order got cancelled, i guess they didn't have it in stock or it got sold out. It looks like i would have to hit up a couple of walmarts on my to work tonite hoping they still have it.

My local Target ad had both the cars and lone ranger sets for $ 17.46 each. Was able to get walmart to price match both. I also ran into the not stocked issue and had to have a manager go pull them from the back.
