This week, Toys R Us is offering a deal if you are still looking to collect more SuperChargers and Vehicles. From 10/11 through 10/17 if you purchase any SuperChargers Vehicle (16.99) you will get 50% off any one SuperChargers Character ($13.99 regular price). This will save you roughly $7.00 and make the pair about $24. This is about a $1 cheaper than you can get the dual packs at Best Buy ($24.99) but you are not limited to just those figures in the dual packs. If you are a Gamer’s Club member, then Best Buy is still the better deal for the dual packs as you will get them for $19.99. But you can mix and match at Toys R Us, so it’s not too bad of a deal if you are looking for characters that are not in the current dual packs. This means that if you buy the Shark Tank, you don’t have to get Shark Shooter Terrafin as your 50% character, you can get any character for 50% off.Share this article!
After checking out several of the retail websites this morning, it became obvious that most of the SuperChargers Wave 1 characters are available for Pre-Order at several popular retailers. It also showed a couple of new exclusives and alternate versions which are also available for Pre-Order. Best Buy also showed a couple of Dual Packs available for pre-order, but these have a release date of 10/2. This possibly could be the date for Wave 2, so stay tuned. In the past Wave 2 follows almost immediately after Wave 1, so it’s possible. It also doesn’t say what is in the dual packs, so it could be combos of Skylanders released with Wave 1. For example, the dual pack could include maybe Stormblade and the Sky Slicer, or it could be a brand new Skylander and vehicle combo. My bet would be on Skylanders that have already come out in single packs, so you may want to wait. You would only about $3 on a pair though, so it might be worth getting them separately. We probably will know soon, as Best Buy will probably update their website any day. For now lets’ check out what is available for Wave 1.
UPDATE: Well, this morning I got an e-mail from GameStop, and sure enough they advertised that Frightful Fiesta will be “first” at GameStop. I guess even Skylanders now have timed exclusives. Also, Target is showing a Nitro Stealth Stinger, but only if you search for Skylanders and not SuperChargers.
It looks like King Cobra Cadabra will be a GameStop Exclusive. In fact he should be available this Saturday, June 27th during GameStop’s next Skylanders Day. If you have been waiting for a sale, now is the time. GameStop will be offering a Buy One Get One Free on all Trap Masters, core Skylanders, and even Eon’s Elite. You can also get a free Water Trap with purchase of any other trap. They will also have a Steampunk Shrednaught Tech Trap exclusive to GameStop. You can get that trap free when you pre-order Skylanders SuperChargers. Trap Team Starter packs will be half off at $29.99, and with purchase you will get a free Giants Triple Pack, and a Punch Pop Fizz character.

On Saturday 12/6/2014 GameStop will be having another Skylanders Day from open to close. They will be having a number of sales and they’ll be featuring the release of the new special variant Winterfest Lob-Star. This new Skylander will not be exclusive to GameStop, however, there is no word on when it will show up to other retailers. Best Buy has the character listed but it still says “Coming Soon”, and you could get it now off Amazon.com as some people have gotten their hands on it, but you will be paying quite the premium right now.
Here is a list of all of the Skylander specials you will find at GameStop on 12/6/2014.
Get any Trap Team starter pack for $49.99.
Get the new Eon’s Elite Whilwind character for $24.99.

Trap Team has only been out a week now but that hasn’t stopped the sales especially at Toys R Us. So here is a look at the Trap Team Deals for 10/12/2014. This week, Toys R Us holds the only sale that I can find. If you buy any Trap Team Starter Pack, you can get any Skylanders figure for free. They show Trap Shadow so it is assumed you can get figures from any game and from any price range. ie you could get a Giant, Trap Master or a core figure. Mini’s probably don’t count because the sale does state a “Single” figure and minis come in two packs. Also at Toys R Us, if you buy any Skylanders Trap Team figure, you can get a single trap for just .99. That seems like a pretty good deal to me.
That looks to be all of the deals this week. If you know of another Skylanders deals this week, let us know in the comments.Share this article!

However, their starter packs are on sale for $59.99. And at Gamestop, they have the starter packs for $39.99. Something to consider if you have a lot of built up credit.Share this article!
