Wave 3 Skylanders now in stock at Amazon.com

Wave 3 Skylanders - Prism BreakThe 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:

Wave 3 Swap Force Release List

Wave 3 Swap Force Stink BombIt’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.
