As promised, as soon as I have something I'll let you know about it.

First Appearance

The first sightings of the Cursed Tiki Temple Level Pack are actually coming from the UK.

The best news is that it looks stores have it in hand and it could be ready to sell as early as today.

Cursed Tiki Temple - Skylanders Imaginators

Thanks to Danny for sharing the image above.

Contents

We already knew the basics of what to expect in this pack, but now thanks to the images of the actual product we have some more info.

Figure

No big surprises here. We're getting Wild Storm in this pack.

He still looks as good as ever. Looking forward to picking up this pack.

Creation Crystal

This was a bit more of a question mark.

We knew that we were getting a Life Creation Crystal, but we had no idea which one.

It turns out that we will be getting the Life Claw Creation Crystal.

Chest

The really interesting piece of this pack though comes in the smallest item.

The Chest included with this pack is BLUE.

Up to this point we've only had Bronze, Silver, and Gold Chests. So this leaves us with a few questions.

Does this Blue Chest unlock the new parts?

Is this Blue Chest supposed to be a physical representation of the Platinum Chest that you could buy in-game?

Platinum Chest - Skylanders Imaginators

I don't really have answers to these questions just yet, but we should be able to answer them soon.

Internet Connection

I've had a few questions about this already and I'm sure I'll get a few more with the sticker on the box.

If you look closely at the images above, you'll see a sticker in the upper left that states:

Online Connection Required To Download Game Content

I know there are many of you who do not like to play online or you don't want your kids going online. I completely understand that.

However, in order to play these new packs, you will need to go online once, just once.

These new levels were not originally planned for the game so the content was not included on the original game disc. This means that if you want to play these levels you will have to go online once to download the patch that will add this content to the game.

Once you have the new content downloaded you can go back to playing offline.

I hope that clears things up a bit for you.

Stay tuned. We'll continue to track the release of this new pack and answer the questions we have about its contents.

    Super excited to see this! I’ll be breathing down TRU’s neck on Sunday for sure. I’m assuming it is register locked, which always makes it impossible to get my store to let go of anything early since they say they “get fined” if they sell it early. Not sure if I believe them, but I play along. Wish the crystal was the rocket one instead since I’m trying not to get a lot of duplicates. Hoping the chest will just grant all the new level pack pieces since I have everything available already except for the wasteland warrior set. Thanks for the pics, Matt!!

    • For the record your store isn’t blowing smoke. They will absolutely receive fines and/or other “punishments” if they break the street date by selling things that have a register lock on them.

      Don’t be upset with the employees. They are literally just doing their job.

      • Josh

        I bought this and the Dark Reactor crystal from my local GAME today and, thankfully, neither were register locked. In the UK new games are usually released on Fridays so this is probably why it has shown up here before the U.S.

      • mindee

        I never get mad at them or yell at them, I’ve worked retail before and know what it’s like to have a customer act like a jerk for no reason. If they’re willing to do it on their own, awesome, but if not I don’t push the matter. I usually ask them to check if something is register locked if I find something that I don’t think should be out yet before I go to the register so I don’t run into the issue. If they say it is, I just ask them to make sure to hold one for me. They usually don’t even bother to put the items out until after I come back on the release day to pick mine up. They’re a little slow at putting stock out for some reason, so it all works out in the end.

        • Zym

          …and not the life rocket, there is seller on ebay selling the “life rocket creation crystal” for $14 if more don’t appear in the stores.

          • mindee

            Just my luck! >.< Heading back to target, tru, and walmart to see if I have any luck today before I bother with ebay. Thanks for the heads up, tho! 🙂

          • mindee

            I found the rocket at worst buy err best buy. With my gamers club discount and a $5 rewards certificate, I only paid $3.24 after tax. Huzzah!

  • Josh

    I bought mine today, for some reason there was a Life sticker sheet in the box, I assume this is a mistake as we’ve seen with previous items?

  • Kevin Sparkes

    Got mine at the game in the UK today and the blue chest unlocks 80 more imaginator parts

    • So just putting the Chest on the Portal instantly unlocks 80 parts?

      • Froyop 12

        WHAT 80 PARTS

      • Kevin Sparkes

        Sorry for the delay in responding , I’ve read it on the box and that’s as much as i know at the moment , but I’m guessing from all the comments you have your answer

    • Zym

      Wait, what does unlock mean? Do you have to sit there and crack open 80 imaginite parts or does it just add 80 more parts to our current list we still have to find?

  • Shane Layne

    Does gamestop get these?

    • They should, but not yet. These have only been found in the a few GAME stores in the UK. Still waiting on a worldwide release.

      • Shane Layne

        Ok thanks.

        • Joshua G.

          Wow, I just asked this, and now I know that they should be there by March 12, just like I predicted. YES!!!

  • Zym

    Haha, I was hoping for a fourth type and there it is, something different. Of course I think I posted either wanting Platinum or even a purple mystery chest, but I’ll take a brand new one. Also got the dark reactor, Target had about 6 so I grabbed one (only need/want one so I’m leaving the rest for others).

    • Zym

      Too bad it’s not the Life Rune. Just curious, what do people do with all the doubles? I definitely had the urge to buy 3 or more dark crystals in that “I can’t believe I found them” moment, but then I just don’t know what I’d do with extras (barely have room with the current stock). Maybe multiple family members or one to leave unboxed? Or maybe buy 10 Dark Crystals to have a dark army of each battle class.

      • Jeff

        I got the last 2 dark crystals at my local Target. I used one to make a dark bowslinger and the other I put away for my nephew’s Easter Basket (they were also running the buy 2 get one free special on them, so I picked him up a water rocket as well).

        • Zym

          Perfect size for an Easter basket, that’s a good idea.

      • JimyMahr

        My first thought is to rebox the duplicate into an old box and return it back to store. When I bought the Crash starter pack, I thought of taking the extra Fire Reactor, take Tech Reactor sleeve, pop it into the Fire Acorn box and send it on back to TRU. The SKU’s are all the same and how many CS employees are really going to be able to say “That crystal isn’t in a single pack!”

        I didn’t. Don’t judge. I just hate the fact we can’t trust Activision to keep up with demand and we have to do things like buy Painyatta double packs on Amazon because if you don’t that is the one figure they will never release as a single pack. To answer the question truthfully, the duplicate just sits and rots in “maxed out” Imaginators storage box. As of now I only have two (Fire Reactor, Magic Pyramid). I might use them eventually, but it is hard enough to keep up with one of each Crystal AND all the Senseis.

        • mindee

          I hear ya. I’ve thought about doing the same, but for ones you can get at the store in a single pack. And no, I haven’t done it. I don’t mind having one duplicate since my husband also plays and it lets him create another character of his own. I just don’t want to end up with 3+ of the same crystal with the way they’re putting ones that are already out as a single pack in with the level packs. Wish they had a better system for how they decide which crystal to include. They could make a bunch of money by making a crystal only available as part of a level pack, then people would pay for the pack vs a single crystal by forcing our hand if we’re a completionist.

          • JimyMahr

            That’s been my complaint with the yawn traps…. Made three different yawn triple packs, bundle each one with two horrible terrible water traps, charge 30 bucks a piece and watch the money come rolling in AND get rid of those stupid water traps.

          • Jacky

            I hate those traps, especially light and dark. 🙂

        • Zym

          I did buy a few double traps for STT just so I had one trap per villain since their traps per villains were very unbalanced. Of course we have a few double creation crystals. Hopefully my kid doesn’t read this, but I made two of the same creation with the Fire Reactor, one is maxed out at 55 and one is 5 levels behind the kid’s strongest. (definitely in trouble if the kiddo reads this)

          • JimyMahr

            I do not blame you. I don’t have kids, but when I’m at my friend’s house, I play some Skylanders with his kids. Between the constant need to swap between enemies (chompy 1 down, time to switch to Ka-Boom. chompy 2 down, time to switch to Tuff Luck) and the face he made when I opened a treasure chest (oh, and put the game on Nightmare difficulty 😈)…… Let’s say he’s a pretty good kid normally, playing Skylanders with him though……. Better to have the parents stash of characters to have actual fun with. 😉

          • Stayforeverskylanders

            Skylanders on hard difficulty 🤔 that is as mischievous 👻 as hiding the remote (or cell phone nowadays 📱). Your inner child must be proud. 😃

          • Zym

            Nightmare feels less nightmare more like bad dream mode. I thought you would lose health by falling into water or off a ledge in nightmare mode. SI nightmare mode is a little easier than I expected.

          • Stayforeverskylanders

            I was thinking that you were saying you change the difficulty when the kid is not looking but maybe I read it wrong. I may or may not have done that myself.

        • MrMinderbinder

          Actually, the Fire Reactor does come in a single pack. They were created for the Portal Owners packs at Walmart. However, when I tried to order a Fire Single Crystal from Amazon, they sent me a Fire Reactor (rather than the Fire Acorn in the picture). Had to sent it back.

      • Stayforeverskylanders

        With that ominous dark army 👹 are you planning an invasion, Zym?

        • Zym

          This army is sounding good…maybe I’ll go back to Target and get the other 6. I did try to make an InvaderZim, but not a good head match. Plus I’m not a fan of how they manage the waist as the character gets smaller.

      • Jacky

        My son said that too..let’s buy 10 crystals and make 1 of each class. But I have to face reality and explained to him that is was too much money. 🙂
        But it must be fun

    • mindee

      Did you get the pyramid, too? I was all over town today and couldn’t find the reactor anywhere. Still have a sealed pyramid if you’d be willing to trade a reactor for it. Found the life rocket I needed super cheap at worst (best) buy.

      • Zym

        Already had the Pyramid with the Triple Pack. After two Walmarts and at the 4th Target, I found the Reactor and they had 6. TRU hasn’t got it yet, so you may see it soon.

        • mindee

          Finally found a reactor after going to a target about 30-45 minutes away and luckily they had one left. Sheesh. I think I hit about 10 different stores between yesterday and today.

  • Sammie09

    I just purchased the Dark Crystals at Walmart both the Pyramid & Reactor

  • VideoGamer1212

    I am expecting this to be a Platinum Imaginite Mystery Chest. If this turns out to be true, I also think we may have a chance of seeing a Copper chest. (maybe in Lost Imaginite Mines pack?)

    • Froyop 12

      I agree I like the blue ones. They give you at least 8 ultimates I think?

  • Tiger XTRA
  • Joshua G.

    Will this be at GameStop by March 12th?

    • Josh Rosenkranz

      My GameStop doesn’t have it in their system, they tell me. At least Toys R Us is aware.

      • Joshua G.

        Apparently, my TRU wasn’t aware. It wasn’t in their system AT ALL. What a bust.

  • Joshua G.

    Exactly how do I get this patch by going online? I’ve never done this before.

    • mindee

      Connect your console to the Internet and then tell the console to check for updates. I don’t know which system you have, but for the PS4 you can hit the options button when you have the game highlighted and then click on check for updates. I assume it’s pretty similar on other consoles.

  • Jackson Cohn

    The cursed tiki temple countdown:tomorrow and tomorrow is my grandma’s dad b day so I have to wait to get the cursed tiki temple level pack and wild storm is so cool

    • Zym

      Don’t worry, sounds like you can spend all day with your grandma and not miss anything.

  • Commander BB Shockwave

    So, how do I go online with an XBOX? I need the XBOX Live for that? Or I can just connect via a router?

    • Jacky

      On your xbox, go to settings and set up your wireless connection. If you have a password for your internet, you have to set up the access and then access the game…it will prompt for the update.

    • Erich

      You don’t need to buy Xbox gold. Don’t pay for anything! Just connect to the internet and that’s it. Gold is only for playing with others and getting free games.

  • Commander BB Shockwave

    Also, can’t believe that the UK has stuff cost more than here in Hungary… that’s a first! Creation crystals are much cheaper here.

  • Jeff

    So, went to Target today for CTT, and it was a complete bust. They didn’t even have it in their system when I asked. They didn’t even have the Nintendo Switch in their system (which was kind of a surprise because you’d think they’d want a big ticket item at all their stores on release day). Next stop- TRU, and if they don’t have it there, then Gamestop. Anyone else in the USA having any luck finding CTT on release day? If so, where?

    • MrMinderbinder

      I can confirm that TRU does not have it today, and probably will not have it this week. It’s not in their system, and there are no notes in their system about its pending arrival.

      • Jeff

        Yeah, talking to the employees at TRU, they said it was suppose to be in today and then it never showed up (they never received their shipment of Nintendo Switches or games either). I then went to Gamestop, when I talked to the manager, she said that they haven’t received notice that it was coming and one of the employees said he heard the new adventure packs were going to be regennal exclusives (like Thrillipede) with CTT being European exclusive and LIM being a North American Exclusive (doubt it though because they have never done that with adventure packs before). They actually had the Nintendo Switch there, but no games for it. I didn’t even bother asking at Best Buy because they never know anything anyway. It was a complete bust today except for finally grabbing Grave Clobber while I was out.

  • Josh Rosenkranz

    No one has it. My heart is broken.

    • MrMinderbinder

      Have you confirmed this? Or are you just not finding it online? TRU has several items in stock that are not listed online (like the Easter variants). Have you checked with TRU, Gamestop, Target, & Walmart, and confirmed that none of them have it in their system? Even if it’s not on shelves yet, that could be because it’s still early in the day.

      • Josh Rosenkranz

        I’ve called everywhere, and no one has it. I’m gonna call Activision tomorrow and wait throughout the week.

  • Zym

    No luck here either….tear tear……..tear tear tear.

  • Joshua G.

    Went to TRU, not there. Could’ve gone to Gamestop as well but it wasn’t open yet.

    • Joshua G.

      UPDATE: GameStop has zilch.

      • Joshua G.

        UPDATE: Target’s out, too.

        • Joshua G.

          UPDATE: According to another Toys R Us that I contacted, it showed up at some retailers. The mystery is – which ones?

  • MrMinderbinder

    Well, no luck today. So it goes.

    Something else occurred to me today – the blue chest in the CTT Adventure Pack comes with several exclusive items. However, if this chest is like the Gold, Silver & Bronze chests, once it’s opened, the content is gone and it can’t be re-used. So… say that several profiles on the same machine want to access these items – do they each have to buy their own copy of CTT? Or maybe your save-game file gets deleted, and you start over – same problem.

    So I’m wondering… is the blue chest from CTT re-usable? Or is this a whole new level of Activision getting us to re-buy the same content over and over again?

    • Zym

      If it works like the other chests, then it’s a per user use, not a one time use only. So my kid can use it with their account and unlock the 80 on all four save files (since all four save files share the pieces and levels) and then I can use it on my account to do the same thing. You can even take it to a friends house and they can use it on their account. The big question is, what if you have two of these?

    • Keri Marie Hartmann

      Well I’m sure some people would like the idea and others not, but a fix to that problem if the chest is not reusable would be to have the same chest in the Ro bow pack since there’s been no information regarding that chest and what it unlocks, but I hope HOPE that regardless, you can still unlock the parts through just game play.

  • Tony Hendrix

    Imaginators wave 4 street date is a complete bust here in Spokane, WA: TRU, Gamestop, Target. Best Buy, Walmart: no stock in hand, and none seen on their computers…

  • Zym

    While looking for the magic claw, I saw someone trying to sell the clear axe water trap for 30+. Is the clear water axe trap rare? My TRU has about 4 of them and I just ignore since it’s just another water trap just without color?

    • Louis

      Zym, it isn’t a chance variant. It is definitely not worth thirty dollars. As to wave four no sign in Omaha, NE or Council Bluffs, IA.

    • JimyMahr

      Only as rare as every other water trap with no color. Really makes me wonder if someone actually fell asleep at the production line because there were A LOT of clear water traps. Just some one trying to make a buck…. Like the guy on amazon selling the villain five pack for 150 bucks and in the description it says “Chompy Mage is red and white, not green and white like in the picture” 😡

      • Imani Richards

        Lol!!!! That’s funny.

      • Imani Richards

        No it’s not a rare trap. It’s totally a defect.

    • Erich

      Everyone is right. It’s a factory defect. I grabbed one because I thought it looked cool. See if you can talk him down to $10 or so. If you want one, that is. I read they came at the end of the production when they were running out of blue. Since they still worked, the traps were sent out anyway. I’ve seen quite a few.

      • Zym

        Thank, but nah, TRU still has them for under 5. Just a factory defect so going to pass. Sounds like they spike the price just because it’s a defect.

    • Harry Pike

      its not rare but will be in years to come
      it will be

  • Joshua G.

    After all this mystery on where the heck the Adventure Pack is, I came to this logical and highly likely conclusion: the shipments probably didn’t arrive on time. That explains why many stores didn’t have the pack in their system. But I’m sure the shipments will arrive sometime this week, or the upcoming Sunday.

  • Kratosx

    the one they sell on amazon has bronze chest on pic insted of blue is that odd to anyone or is it just the pic they show and the actual chest is blue or what?

  • Tejon V Paglialonga

    when is this coming out saw last sunday and was nowhere????

    • Joshua G.

      I assume the shipments of the pack didn’t arrive on time.

  • Joshua G.

    I am starting to lose my patience.

    Why must this happen to us???

  • Jackson Cohn

    I am so MAD!!!

  • John Stirling

    i just got the pack and on it it says 80 creation parts in the chest all i got was 1 ultimate weapon for every class still good i suppose
