In this Skylanders Swap Force 3DS unboxing video, Conner has a mighty struggle with the packaging. Watch how he discovers a new strategy to removing these extremely pesky characters out of their plastic storage containers.
Conner next video is a Fire Kraken unboxing for Skylanders Swap Force. Why do we do these videos? Maybe it’s just to watch the struggles of a five year old try to open toys set in challenging plastic? I have the feeling that one of these days he will break a Skylander he is unboxing. Will it be today?
Yesterday 1/22/14 Target restocked their shelves and on them were some Wave 3 Skylanders. At the stores I went to I saw all three Swappable characters, both Lightcore Characters and a Triple Pack. I did not see Sheep Wreck Island, or the Arkeyan Crossbow Battle Pack. For the Core Skylanders, I saw Smolderdash, Hyperbeam Prism Break, and Horn Blast Whirlwind. I did not see Dune Bug or Phantom Cynder, but they are both listed on Target’s Website with a release date of 1/31. I’m not sure if my Targets broke some kind of street date, or if they just got their shipments in earlier than they thought, but all three stores I visited in my area had some of the Wave 3 characters on the shelves. So now is the time Portal Master! Go get your Wave 3 Skylanders at Target and use your RedCard to save 5%. Also, you may want to call ahead and ask if they have Spy Rise or Rubble Rouser. Those were two I saw the most of by far.Share this article!
The Skylanders Giants Lunch Tin is on Sale at Best Buy for just $0.99. It sounds like a clearance to me, but either way don’t let the picture fool you. This is too small and the metal is too thin to put a real lunch in it for a school child. It may be fun though as a “pretend” lunch box for a pre-schooler. Just be prepared for it to get dents. Also it can be used to hold a few characters, albeit noisily. Or buy many of them for when they get damaged, I mean they’re just $0.99. It also makes a good item to add if you need to round up your Best Buy order to $25 for free shipping.

It looks like Best Buy is the next retailer to start having Wave 3 Swap Force characters available. Most single characters are in stock. It looks like the Triple Packs and Adventure Packs may either be out of stock already or not quite in stock yet for the first time.

Conner digs in to opening Stink Bomb our first Swap Force Sneak Skylander. Believe it or not, he is excited. He doesn’t really sound like it in this video. The ups and downs of a five year old I guess. I think he wanted to play with it more than open it. Anyway, enjoy a very subdued Conner in this Stink Bomb unboxing video.
Not much is going on for sales this week in the land of Skylands. The best and only deal comes from Best Buy. First the Starter Packs for Swap Force are all on sale for $59.99. Second, Best Buy is giving away a free Skylanders character with any Skylanders purchase of $59.99 or greater. This means if you buy the game, you can get another free character with it. Or if you just need a bunch of new Skylanders once you spend $60 you will get a free one as well. Don’t forget, Heavy Duty Sprocket – Silver is still available at Best Buy, so you might want to choose that to be your free character.

Toys R Us is having a 4 day sale from 1/16 to 1/20 which includes a nice deal on old Spyro’s Adventure Triple Packs and Adventure Packs. (If you can find them.) Normally priced at $24.99 these old packs will be on sale for just $10. There is a limit of two per person, but it’s not a bad deal if missed some of the older characters. I’m not sure what Toys R Us has in stock anymore for Spyro’s Adventure figures, but they always have something making them one of the best places to search for those older harder to find characters.
Here is a list of Triple Packs and Adventure Packs they might have.
