I've actually seen a fairly steady of supply of Light and Dark sets at Targets and Wal-Marts around Northwest Indiana.

 

I actually got really lucky and picked mine up for $25 each when Gamestop had them on sale by using in-store pick-up.

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.

Hadn't seen that it was for single figures.  That's a bummer.

It sold out online, but I was able to pick up those Skylanders: Giant Owner Packs for $0.79 at a bestbuy store yesterday.

It also looks like Legendary Bushwhack came out today at Toys R Us in addition to Nitro Headrush at Target.

 

I also managed to snag a Dark Edition Trap Team Starter Pack for Xbox 360 at my local Walmart today. It was at 99.96 MSRP, and I'm not sure I will keep it. I figured I'd pick it up just in case because they are hard to come by. They're also going for $150+ on Ebay. I love how the Swap Force Dark-Edition was plentyful at Gamestop (even thought it was exclusive), but the Trap Team one available everywhere is actually fairly limited.

Target exclusive Nitro Headrush comes out tomorrow...


I saw one in store at a Target last weekend. Maybe they accidentally broke the street date early?

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


There's a placard in my local BB advertising this deal, so I'd be surprise if they couldn't find some way to make it work out for you in store.

Worth a shot, I guess.

I hope the light/dark expansions become easier to find.  I want them, but I'm not willing to track them down or pay MSRP.  Only deals I'm looking for now are Trap Team 3DS deals and a few more trap master elements.

 

Was really lucky, found a bunch of trap 3 packs mis labeled at MS Store during the trade in deal.  They had 3 packs for $5.99, so I bought 6 packs for 3 copies of old sports titles that cost $1 each.  I have every trap element and doubles, which I will likely trade off doubles.

 

I bought Gusto before realizing he came with the 3ds version.  I'll be looking for a Trap Team game cart and Barkley.  I have a portal from Swap Force/Spyro's Adventure so I don't need another one for 3DS

Is there a place to put the traps in the Swap Force portal?

Nope. http://kotaku.com/wh...-3ds-1641191381

 

No Traps

How odd, considering the console game's strong focus. Do not worry about those little trap crystals for the 3DS version of Trap Team — they are useless here. When one of the game's 14 unique villains is captured, it appears on the 3DS' lower screen. Players can poke it, pet it, blow on it, or summon it to appearing alongside your chosen Skylander, performing a screen-wide attack before waiting out a timer for another go.

That doesn't sound as good as being able to use the traps, where there are supposedly over 40 villains you can play as.

TRU has a lot of Spyro's Adventure era stuff on clearance. Triple and Adventure packs are $9.99 each, single characters are $5.00 each and eligible for B1G1 40% off.

GS has the Swap Force stsrter pack for 19.99 NEW. It comes with Swappables Free Ranger and Rattle Shake, and Lavs Barf Eruptor. Even if you don't own a 3DS, the characters alone are worth it, and if you do have one, its not a console port, but an entirely new game.

The game is actually really fun; it's more of a platformer than the console game is. That's a steal at $20.

It wouldn't let me ship, but is available for in store pickup. Unfortunately, there aren't any stores within 100 miles with it in stock.

(And still showing as available.)

I guess it's all about pure luck. I've been trying ti out it in my cart for almost an hour and FAIL every time.

On the good side, Jade dragon Swap Force is $6.60.

There are supposedly 4 new triple trap packs releasing with wave 4, 2 of which contain a Kaos trap. Hopefully that helps out some peeps who haven't been able to get their hands on one.

What's the scoop on the Blastermind trap master? I don't remember seeing him (or any magic element) trap masters at launch. Is he still so new that stock is low everywhere?
