Kaos popped back up with a in stock date of the 20th for me, got one ordered for my nephew so fingers crossed it actually ships.

I've already been charged for mine, it's preparing for shipment. Hopefully that's a good sign for everyone else.

Managed to get one. Thanks to SD for posting it so soon. Happy others are able to get it. Hopefully it does actually ship on the 20th.

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?

If memory serves correctly, I think he was released in mid-December with Kaboom and ...  Tuff Luck?  He's the only magic trap master released thus far, so I imagine that has been a factor in availability (in addition to stores needing to sell what is still on the pegs and the seasonal release).

I just don't understand why these aren't pumped out. So many kids are looking for them

I went to my closest Best Buy last week, and they had rows of empty pegs (typical for this store). The only 2 trap masters they had were Gusto & Head Rush. Went to the next closest Best Buy, and they were fully stocked! They had everyone except Wallop. Strange how stores that are only a few miles apart have such different inventory.

Enigma is releasing with wave 4, so they'll be another shot at getting a magic trap master soon.

Enigma is the only remaining Skylander I want. He has a great design, and I need a magic trap master. Is there a release date for wave 4?

No concrete date that I can find. Should be next month sometime.

I'm gonna try to snag Thunderbolt when wave 4 drops.

Correct. I managed to snag him and the other two all together at Best Buy in mid-January. I had seen them when they came out at TRU shortly before Christmas and they sold out quickly. Seemed like it took forever for Best Buy to finally get them. Blastermind does seem like he hard to find and likely for the reasons others have stated.

 

I'm just keeping my eye out for the Light and Dark packs to show up at Best Buy now so I can get the GCU discount on them.

While I think Enigma is the much cooler design of the two - one of Blastermind's skills (the Soul Gem?) allows you to bypass lock puzzles which can come in handy.

Kaos trap is so dead it's not funny now. I will keep an eye on it though; it might come back in.

 

One I've discovered is impossible to find is Magna Charge Swap Force. Never seen him in stores, not even available online except for a huge markup. Such a shame, because I could be 8 for 8 with the skill/elementals with him, but maybe that's why he's so hard to find.

You're missing speed skill? Freeze blade isn't too hard to find. I grabbed a NIB (packaging was a little damaged) Nitro Freeze Blade on eBay just about a week ago for $10.XX shipped. Pretty good deal. There were lots of regular ones for around that price and a couple more Nitro versions.

They had one at Target the other day. With B2G1 Free, it'd average to around $10. If he's still there the next time I go, I'll get him, along with 2 others.

Nah, it's more that it was the one that was EVERYWHERE when the game launched. Then they sold out, but since they made other guys that basically duplicate his function they figured there's no reason to make more of him. 
But that means that if you want him now- sealed especially- you're going pay the collector markup because all the existing ones are either in players or collectors hands.

Anyone have interest in Gearshift?  They had a small stack of them at my local Target on clearance.

She's looks like the best Trap Master. Awesome figure, and three attack styles. Damn, she's going out of print?

Head Rush must really suck. There are tons of her everywhere I go.

Only in 6% of stores for Target according to Brickseek.  Looks like it is still at Walmart and Amazon though.

I think it's more of a product of how cool Wallop is. I bought Headrush during the Best Buy sale bc for $7.50 why not.

She is definitely my least favorite trap master and I have them all except Gearshift.

I've seen a couple of them here and there at a couple of Best Buys around here but they were gone quickly and are pretty hard to find overall.

Wait, Blastermind is hard to find? I see 1-2 every time I go to Best Buy or Target. I have an extra if someone needs it, that I was going to look for the receipt for.

I actually found my Magna Charge at Walgreen's!
