Sorry if this has already been mentioned elsewhere.  I done a search but no results came up for Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures.  

 

While getting my Skylanders Swap Force 3DS at Target today I found $1 figures for the upcoming Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 3DS game.  Seems one can buy the figures without reserving the game.  

 

Judging by ebay, there are 6 of them to get and I guess they are just the normal figures (which I never knew about) with Target stuff wrapped around them offering discounts if you get the game.  Mine only had three, so I got the Cylindra for my friend as he really likes her.  I personally cannot stand the show but $1 each is pretty good when I'm spending $10 to $15 a pop on the new Skylanders figures.  Just a cheap heads up if you're a Pac-Man fan.

If anyone actually wants these, be sure to check the reserve section for both Wii and 3DS, they each have a section of these $1 reservation cards/figs.

 

I have no idea why this cute little kid has so many of these figures, but here's a video of all of them:

You should mention these also unlock characters in the mobile game, so it's a decent value, but the figures are absurdly cheap. Not surprising given they're free with $1 dollar preorder, but figured I would make sure that was known.

they are actually free with a 5 dollar preorder, but for sale w/o for a buck.

had no idea they unlocked anything though, guess thats a bonus

edit-disregard my first comment. you actually get a 5 dollar gift card for reserving the game it looks like

UGH!

All this time, I've been able to dodge that Skylanders and lol @ the other clone. Not sure if I'll be able to ignore this! However, the gameplay looks a bit slow. Hmm..

Didn't know this game exists. I see it's coming to Wii U, too.

I'll go check out my Target tomorrow in the morning.

 

Where are they around? The 3DS isle or?

I picked up a full set when they first shelved these.  Not bad for $6.

I picked up all 6 today. Surprisingly, it also triggered the coupon for the 30% off purchase of two video games coupon.

Ditto, got one after the first figure scanned.  Bought two clearance games earlier and no coupon.

I bought these today but wasn't able to find Cylindria!

 

Would anyone on here be willing to pick me one up for cost+shipping or something?

 

PM me if interested in helping out.

Is it simple to buy these? Do you have to look foolish for buying a lot of reserves or is it a simple transaction?

You can ring them up at the front registers and nobody has said anything to me despite the fact that I have bought multiples at three local stores.  The front register employees don't seem to know what they are and frankly don't care.  Also, if you really just want the figures and don't mind spending more, Toys R Us sells them in three packs for $10 each.  Obviously, just going the Target preorder route is much cheaper.

There are 6 different ones?  I've only seen Pac, Ice Pac and Metal Pac at my Targets.  I guess there are 2 different Pac ones.  Well, hopefully, I can pick up the Cylindria and Spiral, too.  $1 each is a pretty good deal.

There are actually more in the series including some figures that come with vehicles, but Target only has six total figures as part of their preorder promotion.

Yeah there are like 2 other Pac-Man variants that are only at TRU in the 3-packs I believe and I only know of the pineapple vehicle from TRU.

 

As part of the Target pre-order promotion there are:

Pac, Ice Pac, Metal Pac, Cylindria, Pac's Pal Spiral, and The Pac.

 

And as for looking foolish when I was checking out today the lady couldn't figure which UPC code to scan (it's the smaller one) and then asked me if I watched the show and said her kids enjoy it and so does she.  She was cool about it.

 

If you're actually gonna pick the game up notice there are pre-order figures for both Wii U and 3DS that I've seen.

I got the regular pac-man one at my target bought at the, front register with no issue, no intention picking up the game.

Okay I need THE PAC.  I was able to find Cylindria.

 

I thought I had bought The Pac yesterday but apparently I purchased two of Pac instead.  I swear I thought I'd seen The Pac at Target but when I went back today it was nowhere to be found.

 

If someone can help out I'm willing to do like $5 via PayPal.
