Toys R Us is having one of the best sales on Skylanders figures that I’ve ever seen. Most of the time the best you can do is a Buy one get one 40% off or Buy two get one free, but this week they are offering a straight 50% discount on all SuperChargers Single Packs. This means that characters will cost $6.99 and vehicles will cost $8.49. So if you are missing any in your collection, I would check your local Toys R Us this week. Also, if you haven’t jumped into SuperChargers yet, the starter packs will almost be half off and sell for $39.99. If you are looking for a Wii U and Skylanders, you can buy the Mario Kart 8 version of the Wii U for $299 and get the Wii U SuperChargers Starter Pack for free. That’s not a bad deal if you are looking for a Wii U.Share this article!

Wave 3 Characters at Toys R Us
I was at my local Toys R Us this morning and what did I find but four Wave 3 characters hanging on the wall. Lava Lance Eruptor, Splat, Hurricane Jet-Vac and Big Bubble Pop Fizz were all there. What wasn’t there were any of the Wave 3 vehicles: Shield Striker, Splatter Splasher and Thump Truck. There were also no new dual packs, triple packs or action packs, but these tend to trail the main release anyway. I’m guessing we’ll just see these other items trickle in in the coming weeks as they become available.
Wave 5 Skylanders Out at Toys R Us
A couple weeks ago, a check of the big name retail websites, showed that Enigma was in stock at a couple of the nearby Targets. With no signs of Flip Wreck or Fling Kong anywhere online I decided to wait a bit. Well tonight, on a whim I decided to check out Toys R Us. Mostly I was just looking to grab a few traps that I have missed so far. At first I saw Enigma, which wasn’t too shocking. Upon closer inspection I saw that they had both Flip Wreck and Fling Kong on the shelves. I also found the Air Toucan, though I didn’t notice many of the new traps that have yet to be released. I did however, pick up a couple of the Wave 3 traps that I never really saw in stores. That makes me wonder if the Wave 3 traps ever came out with or if they were pushed back. If you remember, Wave 3 seemed to be most affected by the west coast shipping strike. In any case my trap information is far from official, it’s mostly just what I have observed and have seen through rumors. I also didn’t see any single packages of Snap Shot, Food Fight, or Deja Vu. I have no idea if they will get their own separate releases, but in the past most of those characters did get single character releases and they usually happen in Wave 5. They are also somewhat limited as not many people would already have the packs that they came in. But Blades has already been released as a single character having also come with the Nightmare Express pack. As far as waves go, Wave 5 isn’t very large. Hopefully the rest of the traps and any single version characters will make there way out soon, but for now the main three new Wave 5 Skylanders are out at my local Toys R Us. If they are out at mine, then there is a good chance they might be at yours.
Trap Team Deals for 10/12/2014
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.
Also if you are still looking for Swap Force or Giants figures, K-Mart is having a buy 1 get 1 free on figures from those older games.
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!

Legendary vs. Nitro Skylanders
It’s not much of a shock when I tell you: “Guess What? Toys R Us is going to have special ‘Legendary’ variants of Skylanders for Trap Team!” I mean they’ve been selling exclusive Legendary figures for three games now. So not much is changing for the forth Skylanders game Trap Team. However, we are getting a slight twist on the Legendary figure option. This time, Toys R Us will have at least one Legendary Adventure Pack. The Nightmare Express adventure pack will have a Legendary version which comes with a Legendary Blades Skylander.
Quick Draw Rattle Shake Available Now at TRU
I got a surprise e-mail from Toys R Us this morning. Apparently they have limited quantities of Quick Draw Rattle Shake available now in store only. The character doesn’t even show up online. So you may want to call or stop by your local store. Quick Draw Rattle Shake was previously only available by winning the Frito-Lay Skylander Contest back in November of 2013. That’s how we got ours, but if you are still looking for him and don’t want to pay the outrageous e-bay prices. Now would be the time to pick him up!Share this article!
Doom Stone Out at Toys R Us
It looks like Doom Stone has been released in the US for the time being to Toys R Us. No word on when other stores will get him, but Toys R Us has had him since Tuesday 5/13. Surprisingly, I didn’t hear news of this until I made it to my local store today. He is the last normal swappable character to be released.
Also, don’t forget, Toys R Us is supposed to have the Kickoff Countdown figure available this Sunday 5/18.

Kickoff Countdown and Sale at Toys R Us on 5/18
Thanks to a poster on CheapAssGamer.com it looks like Kickoff Countdown could be out by at least 5/18 at Toys R Us. According to an Ad scan on the website Skylanders will be on sale once again at Toys R Us starting 5/18. Starter packs will be 50% off for $32.49 and there will also be a Buy 1 Get 1 50% off character sale for all Skylanders. In the ad, there is a picture of Kickoff Countdown and it says you can get him at Toys R Us first, but it doesn’t specifically list a date. So it’s possible the character might show up earlier or even a little later if at the time of the printing of the ad, they still were not sure of a release date of the character. Still all signs point to him showing up in the very near future at Toys R Us.Share this article!
