I don't see a Skylanders thread, so I figured I'd start one. Post your deals and discussions on all things Skylanders here.

Use the search and you will find not only an official skylanders thread, but also a thread about this deal.

Dunno, I did a search & the only "Official Skylanders" thread that came up hasn't been updated since 2012.  

 

Yes, there are multiple threads on specific deals, but nothing aggregating them.  Let me know if I'm completely missing it, otherwise if the OP wants to keep this thread rocking, then I'm on board.

The only current Skylanders deal I am interested in is for the Skylanders Trap Team: Sunscraper Spire Light Element Expansion Pack. But it seems to be much rarer/impossible to get at MSRP now since its sold out, and there are no news on if it will ever be restocked.  Not gonna pay more than what I paid for the game itself, but I need a light Skylander.

 

Last week Best Buy had a glitch for buy one skylander, get 50% off the second skylander, but the most expensive skylander came up as the 50% off one, so I got a Trapmaster and a preorder for Blackout for $17.49.  This B2G1 doesn't seems as good as that one from BB last week. Just FYI.

Skylanders of the money element are strong in this topic.

I saw several of the light and dark packs when I was at Target a couple weeks ago. I was holding out to get them at Best Buy with GCU, but maybe I should have bought them.

I would drive over an hour for one at MSRP. I haven't checked local stores much, but I cannot find it anywhere. Don't know how rare it is, but I think it's actually quite hard to come by. Get one if you are interested in it I'd say.

I've never seen an official Skylanders thread ... if it exists it's either A. not in the deals section or B. Poorly maintained and never on the front page. So this is a welcome addition as far as I can tell.

I have a "adult used" Light and a Dark set sitting idle here that I was going to toss onto Craigslist for $20. I had no idea they were rare. I guess I won't have a hard time selling the sets for $20 each?

Too bad Headrush is kind of crappy, and the horns on the figure snap off easily.

Won't the light and dark sets see a wider release at places like Best Buy eventually? That seems to be the way all the past expansion packs have worked.

I wasn't aware if this. Mine has been fine. I'll leave Nitro in the package for collector's purposes but I think the color scheme looks better.

This is what I'm hoping for. The Ninjini Giant was so hard find at first and now there are tons. I'm being patient and waiting to buy the light and dark sets at the right price.

I'm also going to wait as well. It seems like with all Skylanders items if you are willing to wait, you can get the item for MSRP or less (except the rare variants).

The Best Buy deal is still going on.  It's not a glitch, since it says right on the deal page that the discount applies to the higher-priced item.  Unfortunately, it doesn't look like you can checkout with more than two at a time, as I tried adding four and the discount didn't work.  I just added some preorders to two separate orders in order to get the free shipping for $35+ (you can mix shipped/in-store pickup items).  I picked up Hijinx/Eye Small, Head Rush, Tread Head, and Hog Wild Fryno for about $25 plus tax (after GCU).

 

As for the Light and Dark packs, Amazon gets them in at MSRP quite often, but they sell out very quickly.  Just keep checking back and you'll eventually get lucky.  I even happened upon the Kaos trap at Amazon for $5.99, but it sold out before I could add it to my cart.

Which city did you find them in? I didn't know Walgreens sold them. I don't need a Kaos trap I'm just curious.

I also find it dumb that they picked Headrush out of all the characters to make a Nitro version.

Also anyone else NEVER see Gearshift in store? ( yes I know it's on amazon)

They also made a Nitro Krypt King on release day of the game. Gear shift was also available everywhere on release day. Not easy to find now though.

My SoCal Target (as of yesterday) had about two dozen Gearshifts on clearance for 30% off.

Target Cartwheel has a 20% off offer for Love Potion Pop Fizz.  Not sure if (or how) it stacks with the B2G1 Free Offer.

Stores have limited space, so they only stock the absolute top sellers. Online does not have that issue, so they can afford to stock less popular stuff.

I bought a dark set at a BB a few weeks ago, but it's rare that I ever see the expansion packs there, even though my local BB has a placard advertising it.

It's more common to find these at Target. It seems like most at Tuesdays I go there, a couple of light and/or dark packs are still around.

In regards to the Light and Dark expansions.  Target has the same DCPI (207-00-3011) listed for both expansions.  Brickseek is showing them in stock in 13% of stores.  

 

Closest store to me is 35 minutes away, so I'll pass on driving that far on the chance that they are both light.  With the B2G1 that they are running this week, I wouldn't mind picking up both along with another expansion.  Hopefully they'll both be at a store closer to me this week.

It says it's for single character packs. Generally, that means expansions don't apply. They didn't at TRU, but if that's not the case here, let us know.

The deal is still advertised, but doesn't work anymore, it seems.
