We’re back! It’s been only six days since we unboxed our first haul of our Wave 1 characters and game for Skylanders SuperChargers. Wave 2 is a little smaller but that is to be expected with less characters and vehicles to collect this year. So today we unbox the Wave 2 individual character packs (Smash Hit, High Volt, Burn-Cycle, Shark Tank, Stealth Stinger, and Jet Stream) which hit Toys R Us and Amazon today. They should hit other retailers soon, as will the first Triple Pack and a couple of dual packs if you are waiting for deals.
Yesterday I looked back at the Trap Team articles that I wrote about the launch of Wave 2 and was surprised to see, that I got the Wave 2 characters for Trap Team just 2 days after launch. So I made a trip this morning to my local Toys R Us. At first I saw nothing new on the shelves, but after talking to the employee I learned that Wave 2 SuperChargers had just come out today. They had the boxes behind the counter and not even on the shelves yet. So I was able to pick up each of new single pack characters for Wave 2. I checked other retailer’s websites, and it does not appear that Wave 2 is out anywhere else except Amazon.com. Typically Toys R Us gets the jump by a week or two on other retailers, so if you are sticking to GameStop or Best Buy, you may have to wait a while. Best Buy also still has a couple of Character Dual Packs on the website with a release date of 10/2. I would guess this is when they would have the rest of Wave 2 as well.
