$3.67 sounds like a bargain. They're $4.99 where I live!


Wow that's crazy how prices vary across the country. I am always thinking how expensive everything is where I live but someone always has it worse..

The happy meal used to be 1.99 here, even during one of the skylanders promo's it was 1.99 for some time.

I've never bought a lightcore Skylander before. Do they just have that light attack when you put them on the portal, or do they also have exclusive wowpow attacks?

I'm not aware of any exclusive Lightcore Wowpow attacks, though many are series 2 or later, earning them those attacks.

Toys R Us is having a crazy Skylanders sale in this week's ad. 50% off all Spyro's Adventure and Giants single core figures. All Spyro's Adventure and Giants three packs and Adventure packs are $5. (An even better deal than the 50% off of the single figures, in my opinion) And, 50% off all Lightcore Giants and Swap Force single core figures.

Damn.  Really wanted to pick up the Adventure packs from the first game, but I'm guessing all the local stores will be cleaned out (and the website won't let you do in store pickup on either.)

Has anyone picked up the McDonald's happy meal toys? I was wondering if the coupons were added to the meal like a flyer or if they were printed on the happy meal box or something

They're in the toy bag with the toy. Like the little sheet that shows you all the other toys to get

Hello.  Most may know this already, but Best Buy is offering a free Volcanic Eruptor with any Skylanders purchase this week.  Some Best Buy stores with a Samsung electronics section are also offering a free Volcanic Eruptor today along with a slap braclet for trying the game on a Samsung pad (from 1:00 to 4:00, Sunday only).

Best Buy also has buy one get one 50% off Trap Masters. Toys R Us has buy three Skylanders for $33. Which is only a good deal if you buy Trap Masters, since it saves you $6 a figure.

Three things that might be useful...Toys R Us will allow you to use three of your cereal or Happy Meals $1.00 off coupons on the 3 for $33 Trap Masters deal which makes them only $10.00 each.  Also, the free Volcanic Eruptor at Best Buy this week (for any Skylander purchase) is kept in the back of the customer service area (not the video game section or at checkout) and is a bagged character/card/sticker marked not for re-sale.  Try to find a motivated/helpful employee!   Finally, If you have a Tuesday Morning discount store near you, they have Skylanders Giants single figure packs for $3.97 each.  My local had Hex, Drobot, and Double Trouble.  An employee told me that they also have Giants three packs and adventure packs coming in in the next few weeks for $8.97 each.

Check your emails from Toys R us, got one saying buy any trap figure get another figure for $1.00 coupon, probably YMMV, but doesnt hurt to check the spam email they send,.

 

Anybody care to recommend a good, strong, versatile trap figure/master to get? Haven't gotten that to traps yet, so not sure whats good.

Bat Spin is awesome once you get her powered up (she's terrible at low levels). The projectiles she spits are bats, which damage what she aims at, then stick around and damage other enemies. She can also transform, and spit three bats at once (if you choose the transformation upgrade, which you should). Deja Vu is also great, and unique, when you get some decent power ups going. Wallop is the ultimate close-range specialist, and is awesome even at level 1. Kaboom is great at long range, though not as powerful per hit as Snap Shot, his rate of fire and bullet speed is much greater, and he can be powered up with ricocheting projectiles, making him nearly unstoppable. These two helped me pass many challenges that are otherwise neigh impossible, such as the sheep defender arena battles. If you're on a budget, get these two and you won't need anyone else. Gearshift is also a great, versatile fighter, with three different selectable fighting modes for one of her specials, and she looks really cool.

Wish I'd known that the last time they had this promotion (when Enigma first came out), as that's when I bought my figures.

There are a couple of nice unadvertised (as far as I can tell) clearance deals going on at certain Best Buys.  A fairly large selection of Swap Force core and Light Core figures are marked down to $3.99 or $4.99 (all came up at the register with no fuss).  I saw Slobber Tooth, Smolderdash, Super Gulp Pop Fizz, Lava Barf Eruptor, Punk Shock (Easter), Blizzard Chill, and Kick-Off Countdown (all $3.99).  Lightcore Flashwing, Lightcore Star Stike, Lightcore Countdown and Lightcore Wham-Shell were all 4.99.  The clearance section was on a wall away from the current Skylanders shelving space.  Interestingly, the Giants figures in the same clearance section were all full price.

I have no idea, but do you have a tablet? Do you wanna try it and see? I'll give you the code for free if you post back here and let us know if it worked for you.

 

Also, Im sure everybody got this email already from TRU, but I was a little shocked at the price drops on the figures for the sale/promo on 6/06, looks like now is the time to stock up on any missing figures:
