woot! more skylander figures I don't need! Anyone know when the new figures will be available?


Three new ones (Dino-rang, Wrecking Ball, and Hex) were released on Friday. If you check Wal-Mart's website, they list all of the rest of them as releasing on December 4th, NO IDEA if that's reliable though.

I'm right there with you about the figures though. I've been waiting on a good deal for them, I'd rather wait for BF but with the way these things keep selling out around here I'm scared they'll be all out. :/

Once upon a monster for 25 sounds good. Won't have to wait for black friday.

I saw all three new ones at my Target today, so they're definitely out around me. I'm thinking I'm going to jump on the 2 for $10 deal Sunday -- if for no other reason than not having to wait in the TRU line next Friday ...

Oh and I'm also considering getting the Skylanders 3DS starter pack. I have the 360 version, but I've read that the 3DS version is an entirely different game. Any thoughts?

Nice and thanks OP. My boy wanted once upon a monster. I needed a reason to skip BB on BF... :)

Might have to take advantage of the deal on the single Skylander figures though I still want to get the Pirates pack on BF as part of the B1G1. I'm hoping I can just order that online. But there's no way I'm waiting in line at TRU to get Skylanders figures.

The BF B1G1 on the Skylanders figures would come out to 2 for $8, which is pretty close, minus the crowds and potentially bare shelves. Also, since my two adventure packs still don't properly count toward the $100 TRU free figure promo, I won't mind some spend padding to get there, plus I just got a $5 reward certificate in the mail anyway.

Also, nice deal on Sesame Street - I think the TRU version is also the only one that comes with that free bean bag thingy.

Zelda w/ strategy guide gets $25 GC? How expensive must that guide be? I haven't purchased one since Echo the Dolphin on Dreamcast.

Yes. It's advertised, but has also been available for preorder at TRU for a bit over a month.

Tempted to get the Skyward Sword+Guide deal. I have a $17 TRU gift card I've had for almost 2 years after I traded in some games there.

Last year around here it was ridiculous. Forget Black Friday...still on Saturday, there was a line that went from the front door all the way around the entire store just to enter the Rzone. I don't think I would ever need anything that badly.

Haven't contributed too much to the Skylanders raping of people's wallet, but the local store seems to be doing quite well. The last time I visited(2 days ago), aside from the starter packs, there were only a few $20 packs, and nothing but 'Voo doo' (think that's how you spell it) single packs left. That action figure is getting no love (the design must be quite unappealing to people in general)

My Darklight Crypt originally wasn't counting, but I checked recently and now it has the 'S' icon, so they might have fixed it.

I'm definitely going to grab 2 for $10 later this week, hoping they have the new guys. The thought of going to TRU on Black Friday absolutely terrifies me.

So if I already preordered Zelda to ship to me, will they automatically add the gift card?

Once Upon a Monster is $24.99 at BestBuy.com today as part of their DotD. Free shipping as well. I ordered one for my 4yr old. Would rather give Best Buy my $$ since our Toys R Us unfriendly.

Think I might take the Wii deal since I'm buying Zelda anyway. My launch Wii still works, but now I can mod that one to play imports. Plus I always wanted a black Wii to match the other consoles.

Yes - this appears to be fixed now. After speaking with a rep about two weeks ago, we discovered what appeared to be the problem with the adventure packs, but she was unable to help beyond that - so I sent a registered letter to the address she suggested, detailing the exact issue - I received confirmation yesterday that the letter had been signed for/delivered and when I logged into my account last night - they were both showing with the "S" - so I think the issue was fixed.

Long story short, the list of "eligible" items included the UPCs for the six-pack shipping case of the Adventure Packs - not the UPC of the individual item.

However, the strategy guide is still showing as "AMER FUN HOME VIDEO DVD GAME" and doesn't have the "S" by it. :(

Anyone have the nyko zoom and care to weigh in.

Preliminary reviews were good and space is limited in my house. Well it's not limited but a PITA to move everything out of the way.


My suggestion is to keep your money. I bought this thing and it didn't work. I tried all combinations and placement for my Kinect and it failed. I was able to get it to do one player, but it had some recognition issues and missed some of my moves, tested on Child of Eden and Kinect Adventures. Two player was horrible, it had a hard time recognizing the second player and when it did, the on screen character was twisted up like a pretzel. I worked on it for 3 days and gave up and sent it back to Amazon.

I'm trying to decide between all the hassle but cheaper price and free goodies at best buy for wwe 12, or just use my $15 Kmart coupon and get another $20 coupon. Decisions decisions

All the black friday ads are out ex for Amazon and none of the big retailers have a deal for it (Amazon probibly wont either). You are better off with the price match

How does this $10 for Zelda work? I have the game preordered so essentially do they give you $10 in a BBY GC to use right away?

I just want to make sure I have my plan for Sunday because I want the guide for the game and I plan on using my $10 on it if possible. What I was doing is picking up Zelda, then since that's at a separate counter, getting a guide and going to the normal check outs. Just want to make sure that's how it works because I know BB employees are not the brightest of fellows. :lol:

I was also going to ask about this. Do BBY GCs have a minimum wait time for activation?
My plan was to checkout, swing back around and grab one of those $10 PSP games...

In the past they have been just regular BB gift cards and are activated and ready to be used once they have been rung up at the register. So you should be able to turn right around and use it right away.

I've bought the Wii twice before and sold it both times. But every time Zelda or a new Nintendo exclusive game comes out I get nostalgic and regret my decision. I'll be in stores Sunday to buy this and play some Skyward swords!
