I have an extra Gearshift if someone is looking for one.  Unopened.  Picked it up at Target ages ago when it went on clearance. Make an offer (w/shipping) and it's yours.

Finally found a Trap Team starter. I wonder how often they restock. The two I frequent seem to get different stuff every few days.

Everything pre-Imaginators is down to 50 cents now. Finally got a few of the Elites, those were always still 9 bucks but they're 50 cents now too.

Oh wow. That's an amazing deal, if my store has any left. Thanks for the heads up.

They literally keep throwing more Skylanders at stores the second it looks like your TRU is even remotely about to run out of them- the sheer number of these things that keep showing up is astounding and really makes you wonder just how many of these figures were made. Definitely ask if you don't see any at your local store, I can't imagine any store not having more.

I'm shocked this is the fist time stores actually appear to be low on stock for Skylanders with this current sale. Many of the figures I bought last month for 5 for $4 are now gone and removed from the website. In store yesterday I was told many of the figures are discontinued and no longer being shipped to stores. Looks like that's all folks.

Well we are over a year out from the last game (~9 months from last content update), so kind of expected.  Infinity lasted a bit longer post final release, but as I understand their figures were waaaay over-produced.  At this point retailers just want to re-claim that shelf real estate.

I don't know about other stores, but we've received at least 3 giant pallets of Skylanders in the last couple weeks. Filling up our aisle every night, we've been selling through about 80% of everything that's out during the day. We've even got a couple things that I don't think we had in the past, like the pink rollerblader 2 pack from Super Chargers. I picked up both a Wii and Wii U starter for the Amiibos, and a couple extra characters in case I want to actually play it some. I just wish we had some starters for the other systems still, nothing but Nintendo ones have come.

The store I was at last night looked like they were just about all out of them and then someone wheeled a cart of like at least 15 unopen boxes of more of them to re-stock the shelves. I asked and he said they get big shipments of them still every other day.

And people wonder why TRU is going bankrupt. Activision screwed them up good.

Mine claims they don't price match Gamestop....

They've never been competitive, they seem to think because they are a specialty store they can charge 10-20% more than every other store.

It depends when TRU got the stock. Might be Activision just gave away their inventory to TRU, since Infinity figures price haven't hit that low yet which they should.

99c stores wasn't screwed by WB when they got loads of early waves of Lego Dimensions... I wish that would happen again.

Normally TRU doesn't but we're supposed to match anywhere that has stuff in stock as long as it isn't clearance or some third-party on Amazon or Walmart right now, through Christmas. The company has a filter on the the internet though, so you'd have to pull it up on a phone which some stores may not want to do.

 

Personally I think the new Skylanders stock was acquired recently, because we were pretty low on a lot of stuff for a while. They could have finally shifted stuff between districts or something though I guess.

....aaaaand another restock at my local TRU. Dozens of boxes put out this morning, almost 100 Astro racing packs, boatloads of Superchargers vehicles, and about a million Swap Force figures.

They weren’t even loading the shelves. Just dumping them in numerous bins:

New Target Cartwheel deal added just now. 50% Off all Sensei figures, until 12/26. Limit of four per transaction, as is the rule with Cartwheel. But, still a good deal. Basically buy two, get two free. And, save a little more if you have a Target Red Card, thanks to the extra 5% off.

What I mean is I literally pull it up on my phone to show them, and the worker says they do not match Gamestop (though they did last year), then will usually either call up front or call a manager back to them, who will reiterate the same point.

(There is one woman though, who just doesn't give a flying Fuck and will price match without any questions, as long as I have proof.. so I do enjoy when she's on duty)

 

The last time this happened was back in October when they were one of the only stores in the area with Xenoblade Chronicles X in stock.

I think Activision way over estimated the popularity and well.. they are trying to unload as much merch as TRU is.

Now I remember Black Friday 2011 going from store to store trying to fight all the figures I was looking for, and repeating it in 2013...

Not a bad deal at all. I sweeped up all of the imaginators a while back when GameStop had them for $2.50 each. Never saw anything beat that yet.

The legendary crystals are $0.50 at TRU, or were earlier in the week at least.

That's because it was a pricing error.

Imaginator crystals were $.50 at TRU, like the older figures?

You’re referring to the gold ones, correct? I don’t specifically recall seeing those when I was there this week. Though I didn’t look for them either.

These are the gold ones with the comic books. They were in the website a couple days ago but I think they have dropped off now.

Can those gold ones be used in the game? I've never seen those before. I scanned all the regular ones and they all rang up at $9.99 each.

Yep. They can. 
I'd picked them up months ago because they part of an earlier buy 1 get X free promo, making them much cheaper at the time than buying the normal crystals.
