Amazon might be the place to go for all of your Imaginators Launch character needs this year. Typically, Skylanders characters are released in waves. In the past there have been about 5 waves of characters that you can count on through out the year. But lately those "waves" have been falling apart. There are often special characters released in between waves, unexpected waves like for the powder blue Skylanders from last year, and of course Thrillipede and Buzz Wing were the only two characters in Wave 5 last year and most in the US have never seen Thrillipede in stores. This year we are starting to blur the lines even more. Wave 1 characters come out on launch day at all retailers while Wave 2 typically comes out a week or two later but always at Toys R Us before the rest of the retailers. This year Amazon is getting in on the mixing of waves by offering Imaginators character Packs which contain seemingly all of the characters coming in Wave 1 and Wave 2 and more. They are all available for pre-order and if you are an Amazon Prime member you will also get launch day delivery and 20% off their already discounted bundle price. Amazon makes no mention of this, but I would assume that quantities must be limited since they are selling Wave 2 characters in the bundles early and for launch. There is also no way to know how long these bundles will be available, it's possible that they may only be available for pre-order. Amazon is not yet offering single character pre-orders, so if you want the most characters you can get early, then pre-order from Amazon now!
So lets take a close look at these bundles!
The first is a pack of 8 Skylanders Imaginators Senseis.
