I was able to get a order in for eye brawl, every time I added thump back to my cart I was told its not available anymore. I hope the eye brawl goes through. Thanks a bunch, my son is going to be super stoked!

I was able to order both but did so in separate orders since when i first seen it only thumpback was in stock.After i checked out and everything i went back and then eye brawl showed up in stock so i placed another order for him.

No biggie its only an extra $3.49 shipping so its not worth the hassle of trying to get it combined to one shipment ext..

You know i am pretty curious about skylanders. I heard that you can beat the game with the starter figures.

I just don't get all the buzz about the figures. Are they a big deal? Are people reselling them? Will they make me the very best? You have to buy them all?

Victory is not about winning battles, its about how long it takes for the person beating you to give up.

Guess I'll have to keep looking. Hopefully like all the others they'll be easier to find at some point.

Which do you have doubles of? And how much would you want to sell them for? Trigger happy is one we're looking for.

No, you can beat it just fine with just the starter, and get most achieves. Some are better than others, but it depends on your playstyle what works best for you. If your goal is just to beat the game and move on, stick with the starters and see how that goes.

The draw is the collection aspect, think action figure collecting. There is a good amount of replay value, and they work across many games - online, console, portable and mobile. Every figure stores data, and unlocks the ability to play them in game. It's fun, particularly if you have kids.

The DS Starter for the first game has Stealth Elf, Ignitor & Dark Spyro. Trigger Happy is in the console Starter or you can get him as a figure for the second game (it works in both), or the Legendary version from ToysRUs.

Just makes it easier to finish the game and especially on nightmare. Have over 20 and my son uses the ones that does melee and I use the ones with range attacks. I would only get the ones that fit your playing style or if you can get them cheap. Still have 2 light core still in the box from the BB sale.

If you want to unlock all the areas in the game, you will need one character for each element.

Yeah I'm glad we have 32 of the little bastards. I've been running nightmare at night solo while he's sleeping, it would be a pain to do with only 3 figures.

Stealth Elf, Ignitor are the 2 i have (well 6 i have since i have 3 sets)

bad thing they are a major pain in the ass to ship though cause you have to put them in a freaking 2/3 day box what kills is the shipping price.
WOOOO I STINK

I picked both of these up at Target on Monday. I live in the suburbs of Atlanta. The detail on both figures is awesome, but Thumpback is particularly impressive.

Hot Dog is currently only available in the Scorpion Striker pack, which is exclusive to GameStop in the month of January. I just picked it up and a series 2 Zook (still don't have series 1) yesterday. No luck on Eyebrawl or Thumpback for me.

Picked up the Scorpion Striker Pack, Thumpback, and Eyebrawl at Gamestop in-store the other day. Still need to find a Camo and Legendary Stealth Elf. Argh.

Get you a Camo... He's fun as hell, probably one of my favorites.

Ditto that

Camo is the best when me and my son play we always use a Camo/ Drobot or Prism Break combo and we tear the game up.

I just picked up one of those for my son last week. Luckily we still needed all 3 of those characters.

Refuse to spend 25 for Hot Dog when I already have Zap and don't need the item. Already got suckered into purchasing the Crypt and Pirate ship.

Best bet is to goto TRU and pick them up. Saw a ton of triple pack with Camo, Incinerator, and Warnado and Legendary Stealth Elf. Would pick these up for you but I think S&H + Tax would make this little on the expensive side.

I picked up Thumpback at Target a few days ago. Along with a single pack Shroomboom (finally). So Target has at least thumpback in store.

found thumpback and eye brawl at my local (Durham, NC) best buy this morning, along with the rest of the wave 3 guys, so they're finally showing up there.

Just found both of these at Best Buy. Snatched every single one of course. They had lightcore Shroom Boom as well.


Obvious troll is obvious. But, I'll play along. Hang on to your receipt, there are currently over 600 for each them up on Ebay right now and the price is fast approaching retail. They have been out at Gamestop and Walmart for two weeks, and TRU gets in a mass shipment for Friday morning.

Activision learned their lesson from last year. New waves for Giants hit in massive quantities, the scalping market has dwindled down to people that get them before release and people that think a figure that has different color lips is rare and valuable. It has been hilarious watching the hoarders clear the shelf of figures only to show up the next day and they are filled again.
