We finally get around to opening some of the Wave 3 characters we have found. And who does Conner choose first? Dune Bug! Enjoy the Dune Bug Unboxing.
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.
Enjoy all of the cutscenes and other important story parts put together into one video that we are calling Skylanders Swap Force – The Movie. Well, almost all of the scenes. Apparently Activision had a problem with the Mesmeralda scene so I had to leave that one out. Even though you can find many other videos of that level on YouTube, our video was blocked worldwide. So I’ve removed that scene and the song during the credits. I purposefully left the credits in the movie because all of the great people who were apart of making this game should be recognized. If you like this video presentation visit our sister site at GameNutts.com or our GameNutts YouTube channel to see more Cutscene Theater videos for other games.
My kids LOVE watching this movie. Let us know what you think!
The big dog now has Wave 3 Skylanders. That’s right Amazon.com sent out a press release today announcing that all wave 3 Skylanders are now in stock (in the US). However, there list of available Skylanders is either wrong, wishful thinking, or already sold out of some of them. None of the swapable characters seem to be available (yet? or anymore?), nor any of the lightcores, nor any of the new Triple Packs. The five core characters are available though as well as the battle pack and adventure pack.
What was available (at the writing of this article):
It’s hard to say if the rest of them will just appear in the next couple days, or if we’ll have another long wait to find them on Amazon. Either way if you’ve been waiting on Amazon to get them in, you can now grab some of them. Keep tabs on Amazon’s page of Wave 3 characters here:Share this article!
A new Silver Heavy Duty Sprocket will be available at Best Buy starting on 1/12/2014 (This Sunday). It is rumored to be a Best Buy exclusive, but nothing on the Best Buy web page shows this. In the past these special colored variants have been vary limited. Also note that colored variants do not look different in game. It is only a rare paint job for the figure. The figure is listed at $9.99 but remember if you are a Gamers Club Unlocked member you will save %20 and get the character for $7.99. If you are a collector who is interested in these rare Skylanders you can jump on this deal now by pre-ordering this character through Best Buy here:Share this article!
It’s been long rumored what characters for Wave 3 Swap Force might contain for the US, but based on some stores getting in a very few characters before Christmas, it looks like a widespread Wave 3 release is right around the corner. Here is a list of what is rumored to be in Wave 3 and those characters that have already appeared on store shelves for a very brief period of time. I have personally seen all of the core Skylanders as they were released to Toys R Us first. I have heard rumors that Target had the three Swapable Skylanders, but I have not seen them, and I have heard nothing of the lightcores or other packs actually being in the wild yet.
Update: It appears that once again Toys R Us has priority. As of Tuesday 1/7/14, I have seen all of the Wave 3 Skylanders at my local Toys R Us as they just got a new shipment. A quick look online does not show any Wave 3 characters at any other retailers yet including Amazon.

There is no mention of having any new Wave 3 Skylanders, but hopefully this sale will also see the release of a few new characters. I think they did this same thing last year right after some new characters were released. For more information checkout GameStop’s webpage here:Share this article!
