The guys charging $190 for the new three pack can go to hell. I hope each of them gets hit by a bus.

theres so much demand for these stupid little things that I don't blame him. if people are stupid enough to pay it then why not? you guys are paying 8-10 on characters in a game...

What version is best to play this on? Wii or PS3?

EDIT: Or is the 3DS version a better route to go?

someone wrote a long long explanation in the skylanders thread. basically whatever console you prefer. Then the 3ds as a supplementary platformer experience.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

3DS "version" is a separate game, with a heavy emphasis on platforming. The console versions are all the same, and have a heavy emphasis on combat and adventure.

If you haven't already gotten into it, beware... When I first got it, I thought to myself "I'll just get one of each element (8 total) so I can see all the things this game has to offer." But then I had to have them all. If you have a collecting personality, get ready to spend a lot of money tracking down the old characters. The game is fun and all, but the marketing scheme just kills my wallet.

Me too... I have everything currently available except Zook and Lightning Rod (I was even lucky enough to grab Dragon's Peak at TRU today with a manager override). Hopefully I can pick up those 2 ASAP!

My store had tons of stuff, but the only one I didn't already have was Hex. I'm not sure if they got in any Dragon's Peak...if they did, it clearly didn't last very long. But on the bright side, my wife finished up her Lalaloopsy collection.


Sunday for Dragons Peak, it's street dated so they couldn't sell it if they wanted to.

Lalaloopsy?!?! I bought one for my daughter for Christmas, I don't get it. You can't even make the doll sit up right, the dolls fat head is just going to make it tip over. I bought her a few outfits but I won't support it anymore than that, I see this toy in the bargain bin in the near future.

They CAN sell it, it just requires a manager override, and that manager has to not care about breaking rules lol

You made the right choice. The three pack is going to fly off the shelves. I think they will be hard to come by.

Oh, I thought the Dragon's Peak is what people were trying to get today. This is my first time taking interest in the figures since getting Whirlwind and Drill Sergeant, so I'm trying to get caught up to speed.

As for Lalaloopsy...I actually think some of them are kinda neat-looking. I think I would probably want these for myself if I was a girl. My wife's dolls don't have a problem sitting on their own; maybe your daughter's doll's head is too wobbly. Or not wobbly enough. *shrug* I personally would like to see these in bargain bins, but I don't think it's happening anytime soon. These suckers are flying off the shelves all over the country and they're an assload of money if you have to buy them secondhand. eBay/Amazon prices are pretty comparable to Skylanders right now and they keep getting more popular. There's bedsheets, clothes, costumes, a video game, a movie, playsets, a kid-sized playhouse, and an obscene amount of dolls.

They are at risk of flooding the market with too much stuff, but they're starting to pull back a little bit now. These are by the same company that makes Bratz and Moxie Girls, both of which are still doing relatively well, so they seem to have a handle on things. One major thing going for them is that they actually make what the fans want (and they have super helpful customer service). Over the last few months, they've incorporated a lot of things into the dolls that people have been asking for on Facebook. And wow, I know way too much about this stuff. I bought a ton of these things for my wife for Christmas (which involved a lot of research/hunting), so I think I probably know more about them than she does. I hope my son never sees this when he's older.

I've copied pasted this from my post in the forums, so I apologize in advance, but I get the feeling a lot of people don't read in the forum, and it's more relevant here anyway:
I ordered Whirlwind Sunday night and every morning this week - starting Monday - it said "Shipping Soon". I emailed Amazon Thursday morning and got a real quick - in like 5 minutes - reply saying Whirlwind was back-ordered but she upgraded me to 2 day shipping and we would have it Monday. Only it is back-ordered and they don't know when they are getting them in. It said "Not yet Shipped" for about and hour and then went back to "shipping soon". So either we're getting it Monday, or we aren't. Stupid Amazon, don't sell me stuff that's back-ordered and tell me it's "Shipping soon" for 3 days.
BTW - does anybody here know what "shipping soon" means on Amazon time wise? I think Amazon should poll people, I'm guessing 24 hours is "soon", anything more than that isn't "soon", it's "shipping in the next few days". Or in my case "not" shipping.

I ordered Cynder on Monday....it said "Shipping Soon" since then and shipped at 1AM last night.

I ordered a bunch of singles that came in stock yesterday they also shipped at 1AM.

Ordered a 3-pack yesterday, still says shipping soon.

Don't really know what's going on with Amazon shipping, but they've been doing this as well with my orders.
On top of it, I've been getting snail mail rates, when I paid for Prime shipping.

I also ordered Cynder on Monday, but it is still in Shipping Soon as well. I ordered it also with a couple things and since then they have regrouped the items twice, authenticated the card twice in two different amounts (not charged though). I really don't know what they are up to on it.

Most of these said restocking on 3/22-3/24 when they were going OOS yesterday. At least amazon offers the backordered purchase to guarantee you one. TRU will let you get all the way to place the order and dump you to a generic screen and wont tell you what happened. This is probably the most customer friendly way to handle the day late/dollar short scenarios.

I got in for the crypt and pirate packs today. Got some of the older figures from a B&M store yesterday since my son is just getting into it. In the last week I've spent $150 getting the starter, two adventure packs, 2 singles, and two 3 packs.

Grabbed the starter pack and then 3 more figures from Amazon; still need a Skylander for Earth and for Life in order to have one from each class/element.

Once I have a figure to represent each element, I refuse to buy any more of them. So far my total "investment" is still under $60.

Stump Smash is easy enough to find and that dude has some POWER.

Thanks for the heads up in this thread about the adventure packs, I almost spent $25ish for a Darklight Crypt but was able to find it on Amazon for $20.
