Prim, are you in the U.S.? Can you tell us your location? If not, no sweat, but the country would at least be nice. :)

Yes. Somewhere out west.

Edit: wave 4 core figures just arrived to my store just now. No hold date on these either.

Edit: looks like TRU added a hold date of 4/6 for the spring assortment sometime yesterday.

Looks like TRU is getting a box in to be held for the 18th. Inside is a case of spring figures and this guy(he's fuzzy), but stores are receiving only one. Don't know what the deal is yet.

I saw that at BBY yesterday. Unless there's a non-fuzzy version there.

The regular one which is probably what you saw is non-fuzzy.

Good deal at TRU for Swap Force starter sets. They're $32.49 and McDonalds has a $10 off coupon with their Skylanders Happy Meals. $22.49 sounds like a good deal to me finally to get Swap Force.

Strange. I saw on darkspyro that they were being offered as a limited giveaway in Australia Targets. You had to spend $30 and enter for a chance to win one of 25 total. Apparently, it seems, there are more of them. Since they are one per store, will it be a crazy chase variant (that no one will see because the employees will buy them...not that I blame them), or is it a contest, or what?

 

BTW, was the fuzzy Trigger Happy inside the case as part of the assortment or was it just a box that included a separate case inside and the fuzzy Trigger Happy?

The case for the spring assortment was open in the box along with the figure.  So at first glance it looks like it's just part of the assortment.  The box was barely bigger than a standard case to hold the 13 figures. This fuzzy Trigger Happy does have a unique Skn.

I did pick up "Swap Force" for $22.49 plus tax with the McDonalds $10 off coupon at TRU. Great deal.

Thanks Prim my wife was able to score on this morning at the TRU by her moms house. It's a older smaller store and she was the only one there looking for it.

Aye, thanks prim4444! I, too, was able to get one. I, too, was the only one there looking, although it was a larger store.

Glad you were able to get it.  No one came looking at my store either.  It was still sitting on the peg when

one of my co workers ended up buying him when she took her lunch break at 12.

Stopped into a local ToysRUs around noon and didn't see it so I asked.  They let me know they had already sold it earlier in the morning.  This thing's gonna end up being really rare it would seem.

My wife actually got 2 at 2 different stores, had to ask for them to check the back though. Thanks for the heads up, my son was very excited to find him, especially after I kept telling him to not get your hopes up

just saw on Twitter that Amazon has Adventure packs and Battle Packs at $16/$15. Probably time for me to pick up Sheep Wreck and Arkeyan Crossbow.

Now for the consumer in me. 60?? 60 new characters? You've got to be kidding me. I think I'll end up buying only figures when they are on sale.

I think they are counting the reposes in that 60 (I thought it was only 50...only, yeesh).

Yeah, according to the FAQ on the website, it's 16 Trap Masters, 18 New Characters "and more"... I'm inclined to think the "60" number includes the reposes (lightcore?) as well.

Glad some of you are still enjoying this. Phew looks like I made the right call backing off after Giants. Not dissing it at all, fun series but I regret the time and money I put into those figures. I still have to beat Giants on Hard and beat the first game all the way through. Can't say I'm a little envious though as some of the new figures look great, especially compared to the roster for the first two games.
