While I was shopping at King Soopers for some brats (the food, not the kids), I got hit in the face with an end sidecap full of "fuck me"

Skylanders Giants single figures: $4.99
Skylanders Giants Lightcore: $5.99
Skylanders Giants Giant Giants: $7.49
Skylanders Giants Triple Packs: $12.49

Offer good until 12/16/2012 aka: enough time to break anyone's will.

This happens, of course, the very day after I buy a Wham Shell at TRU for $5 (b1g1free, bought two for profit) thus completing my "one of every element" minimum requirement that I wanted for the game.

I only bought Crusher and Slam Bam 2.0...I really hope they sell out soon.

Here is hoping Fred Meyer follows in their corporate masters footsteps and offers this too.

Frys Supermarket doesn't count as a Kroger does it?

I was just there today and Skylanders Giants figures were on sale for $7.99 instead of $9.99, but if there's a chance they might be half-off I'll have to go back.

Just looked in my local ad and sure enough they have them listed but they say $9.99 with card. Will be sure to check it out this week sometime.

Op, what is your zip code? I'm wondering if they have it in their weekly ad. If so, maybe I can BS my local bb to pm :D

Quick off topic Skylanders question. I bought my son the x-box bundle at walmart that comes with the original game and on of the guys the starter set comes with is Trigger Happy. Now I was able to pick up a Legendary Trigger happy at TRU during there B1G1 free sale. Is it worth keeping the Legendary version of Trigger happy if I already have the normal one?

YMMV. Just checked mine out, no go. No signs, and scanned full price.

Where the heck are these even in the Kroger store?

Kroger never sold "video games" as far as I know, much less Skylanders...must be looking at the wrong aisle or something.

Did you scan your Kroger Plus card beforehand?

In my opinion, no. My son ended up getting him after he got all the others but didn't play with him as much as I thought he would. So I guess my advice is if you're able to exchange it for a different one, he would probably enjoy that more than a slightly modified version of one he already had.

On topic, I have three Kroger stores within a few miles of me and will definitely be checking this out!

May be regional. Nothing at the kroger I checked in middle TN as in no Skylanders and no faint glimmer of recognition from the employees. I remember a crazy DVD or bluray deal from a few years ago that was regional and TN missed out on it.

yes, I found them at 3 different king soopers here in Colorado Springs. That may be the thing (king soopers only) since that's where the op found them also.

What is a king sooper? Is that the mega Kroger with furniture and stuff?

Friend of mine is an assistant manager at a Starbucks in a Kroger in IL. He just got Skylanders Giants from Wal-Mart on BF and has had Skylanders for a few months now. This sale is great for him due to his employee discount stacking.

Thanks OP.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

No, King Soopers is just a name of one of their chains of grocery stores.

I was literally just thinking the same thing. My wife is a Kindergarten teacher and says that her classroom boys are obssessed with these little things.

Kind of like their Pokemon?

What are all these little guys exactly?

Guys this is very YMV, I live in the OH WV area and they are only marked to 9.99. I was able to talk the manager into giving me the price after showing him the OP pics. Good luck to all.
