Got Lucky and found a Hot Head at Gamestop a few weeks back.. Grabbed it at the time..
Like the posts in previous pages all charachters and game are set aside for the 6yr old for Xmas..
This is bad but I can say "Hey if your not good , Santa is not getting Skylanders for you" and usuallly works! :)

Hoping that Thumpback, Hot-Dog, Eyewbrawl and some newer ones (aka Wave 3) come out soon..

Any news from Activision? Or anybody else?

I found a Stealth Elf v2, Drobot v2, and Prism Break v2 (awesome sculpt!) at TRU yesterday. Only once of each on the shelf so I don't know what the case breakdown is and I didn't see any other "new" character figures

But I guess this means they are shipping again so hopefully soon well be seeing more show up on the pegs of other stores

So Wave 3 was a bust, just series 2 versions of pre-existing characters.
Gamestop is taking pre-orders for the next battle pack, Zap & Hotdog with the Scorpion Striker (catapult). They are scheduled to release January 9th.
Target's Sunday sales paper had Skylanders Giants on sale for $12.99 and showed a pic of Thumpback. I have been to three Targets and no one has that figure.
Anyone have any luck with new figures?

HotDog pack from Gamestop ad shows 1/11/13 actually if you look here below picture says "In Store" -> http://www.gamestop.com/gs/weeklyad/cur ... l_10000768

Seems Thumpback and EyeBrawl are coming soon as Amazon has the listings up with carded pics so I'm sure they are hitting soon ..
Thumpback -> http://www.amazon.com/Activision-Skylan ... B008SBZF5S
Eyebrawl -> http://www.amazon.com/Activision-Skylan ... B008SBZF5S

As for me and my son we can't wait for NEW figures to come out.. I'm still on the hunt for those damn white or glitter variants!!..

The ad shows 1/11/13, but the website and the store state 01/09/13. So be prepared to get yours tomorrow.

Website was changed to 1/10/13 here -> http://www.gamestop.com/toys/skylanders ... ack/107129

Also being reported that Gamestops don't exactly know when getting in.. Could be tomorrow thru friday.. I guess it gets here when it gets here.. I'm in No Rush, once the crazy dies down I'll get it. After Jan it will be available at other stores.

I tried to pick up my pre-order of the Giants Battle pack yesterday, but I was told it was not in yet. I later got a text telling me that it would be in on Friday. Oh well, just one more day.

Now they have a Skylanders Battlegrounds set-- for the handhelds---starter pack includes 3 different (albeit already released) figures.

If you buy the Battlegrounds set at Gamestop, then you get "Royal Double Trouble" included. This is the only way to purchase this in-game variant.

Got Hotdog today. The little man is so happy.

My local Gamestops haven't gotten the set in yet. Told me they aren't expecting them until late next week. :(

Oh we'll, when I get the call, I'll have a Hot Dog figure set added to the collection

Check your stores this week it seems Eyebrawl & Thumpback are being spotted in Wal-mart stores and Gamestop stores on the west coast already!!.. Should be anytime for us 'east coasters'.. Good Luck Hunting!!
I couldn't find Hot Dog on Friday morning , so I ordered the 3 pack online and should be arriving this week..

P.s. - Couldn't resist bought Gnarly Tree Rex loose on Amazon (not buying the Wii Bundle).. Also bought the 3ds starter pack (just for punch pop fizz ) for $39.99 last month.. I'm Keeping punchy but selling the rest on craigslist. Cool that some of these are different in game..

Its just a skin difference in game though. The alt deco doesn't seem to have any effect on their stats or power upgrades...
