This may be the beginning of the end.

Ro-Bow found in the US

Ro-Bow Receipt Proof

Thursday evening, Jim Moore posted to a Skylanders Facebook group that he had found Ro-Bow at a Toys R Us in Virginia.

Naturally, there were a lot of questions, but all would be answered in time.

As you can see from the pictures above, Jim does in fact have Ro-Bow in hand. He has also reported that the store only got four Lost Imaginite Mines Adventure Packs.

Pack Info:

UPC – 047875880696
“R”Web# – 279146 (reported US number, see comments below)
“R”Web# – 177202 (per the UK listing)

So it looks like Ro-Bow is on his way to the United States in the typical Skylanders trickle fashion. Follow us on Twitter and we'll be sure to track any further sightings that are reported.

Now who was it that said the Q4 Adventure Pack might be the Lost Imaginite Mines…?


  • Wayne Chevrier

    That’s good news. Hopefully we see some in Canada as well

    • Glen Birt

      Or we will get the Christmas Chompy Mage/Dark crystal treatment and get nothing.

      • Courtney Maria Kauling

        Don’t know whereabouts in Canada you are, but I’m near Toronto and found my CCM at EB Games 🙂 Dark crystals I only ever saw at TRU

  • Joshua G.

    You said it! The long wait for Ro-Bow is coming to an end, FINALLY!!!

  • mindee

    HUZZAH! Gonna try my store here in San Antonio in a bit. Will report back if they have it.

  • mindee

    Interesting… So, I just called one of the 2 stores here. The UK rweb number didn’t come up in the system, so I had the guy search by UPC. He said it is in x-status, meaning they aren’t going to get it. He said the rweb number is 279146.

    Gonna be so sad if he’s right. I told him someone found it in VA and posted a picture of the receipt. Ugh!

  • dgl14

    I found ro-bow, caught me by surprise here in ohio

    • Was it still street-dated? Where you able to buy it?

      • dgl14

        yeah they over rided the register lock

      • dgl14

        I forget and yes

  • mindee

    Update: I called the 3rd TRU here in town (the one in Selma, TX just outside of San Antonio) and was told that it’s listed as a discontinued item (and probably showing that because it hasn’t been released yet), BUT that the distribution center showed 1,000 units (for my area) and the internet distribution center showed 2,000 units. She said the system has been wonky for the past few days, not showing inventory correctly and stuff. So, maybe there’s hope after all.

    I don’t understand why, IF the street date is December, they would send the units this early. It’s not a big ticket item like the NES Classic or a Nintendo Switch, for example. They usually get stock 2-3 weeks early. I’m assuming the December date is a place holder that was never updated.

    • Erich

      At toys r us, December 31 is the default date when there isn’t a set date. It’s means nothing. I was a TRU assistant manager up until about 9 months ago.

      • mindee

        Good to know! So now the question is, if it shows the default date will they get in trouble for selling it? It still requires an override, but it’s not the actual “street date.”

        • Erich

          Possibly but in this situation it’s very unlikely. The only company that could really fine toys R us for selling it is activision. And I really don’t think they’re paying that much attention to the street date. Also the status of X means nothing. It basically means once these come out, there will be no more. And as far as the guy who told someone they were online only, that also is not accurate. If it shows supply in the distribution warehouse, they will go to stores. There is a separate section that says online inventory in the TRU system.

          • mindee

            Thanks for the info! I was told by a 2nd store yesterday that it was online only.

            So, I went to my local store since I was in the plaza where it is and talked to the guy who knows me as the skylanders lady. Lol. He said he can do the override and will do it for me if he gets them in. I made him promise to call me and we traded cell numbers. I saw on his handheld that the DC says they got 1200 units as of today. He said our store gets things later than others, so I’ll just wait for the call.

  • Erich

    Let’s all enjoy this moment. It will likely be our last Skylanders hunt ever. We had a good run. Made some friends and had blast with a truly unique franchise.

    Thanks toys for bob.

    • JimyMahr

      Oh, come on. They’ll definitely ship out the last creation crystals as well. When has Activision ever not completed shipping their stock out all over the world?

      • Dan

        Yawn Traps

      • Wishblade

        Yawn traps.

      • Zym

        Ha! I sense no sarcasm in this question.

  • Zeus

    Hey guys… found one at a TRU in Amherst N.Y. today. They only had the one. Good luck with your hunt!

  • Erich

    Just thought I might rub some salt in our wound: analysts expect toys r us to file bankruptcy sometime this month.

    It’s a sad time we live in.

    • Imani Richards

      What? That’s shocking news

      • Erich

        TRU is 8 billion in debt with some huge number due by the end of the year. 400m due by 2018. The loan got extended by a year last year and they’ve made little headway on it.

        Good news, this doesn’t mean they will close. The bankruptcy would allow them to free up funds and restructure in a final attempt to save the company.

        • Imani Richards

          Thanks for the heads up.

        • JimyMahr

          I went through this during my time at TRU. I think TRU got sold to a Japanese company at that time in leiu of bankruptcy. It was sort of a bummer because it nixed all the concept 2000 store models which I was making a killing traveling around helping to implement. Par diems, mileage reimbursement, travel pay, OT?! That was some fat sacks of cash for an 18 y/o. 🤑. Then again, maybe that sort of financial carelessness is what caused the problems in the first place?

    • Imani Richards

      You’re right! I just saw on channel 2 news that due to the bankruptcy, toy manufacturers are refusing to send Toys R Us products until they pay for them.

  • Ryan Evans

    any locations close to Everett Washington?

    • Ryan Evans

      anyone?

      • Elton

        I just bought one in the Portland, OR area last night. And someone else on here found them in Southern CA.

  • Jeremy Cline

    Only pulls up on the uk toysrus site but they dont deliver to United States.Called toysrus customer service could not be pulled up at all .The store around here doesnt have it .So its a waiting game unless I want to pay double the price .I did see on ebay some one in massachusetts is selling them and has 6 of them for 60 bucks each .So scalping is still prevalent .I heard someone saying that texas distribution centers have over a 1,000 of them .I wondering if some of the delay is from the hurricanes in texas .

    • Erich

      For toys r us, In the Georgia region, the warehouse has 2118 on order. My math says that most stores will get 6 or 12 based on size.

      • Jeremy Cline

        How did you find this out as customer service wasn’t able to pull it up ? How long before they start distributing to stores nationwide ?

        • Erich

          It can be seen on the internal system. Not all employees know bow to access it. I was an assistant store manager less than a year ago. I contacted my GM and she was able to give me all the info in the system.

          • Jeremy Cline

            Would a manager be able to pull up this info in the store ? Would it be ok to call the closest distribution center ?

          • Erich

            Anyone can pull it up. It’s a matter of knowing how. I have no idea how to contact a distribution center.

            All they have to do is type the web r # into a handheld device and it gives all this info. Using the computer system gives even more. Like the online quantities.

          • Jeremy Cline

            Thanks for your help .Im going to call a distribution center tommorow .Found the number online .

    I got an email from Menchies yogurt earlier today that has a $5 off coupon for level or adventure packs. The quality of the image in the email was pretty bad, so I called their corporate office and had them send just the image to me as an attachment. Quality still isn’t great, but I thought I would share and save those of you who are lucky enough to find lost imaginite mines pack a few bucks. It is good through 10/15/17. My store still doesn’t have them in stock, so I haven’t tried it and can’t guarantee the coupon will work, but it IS a manufacturer coupon and is only valid in the US. Let me know if you have trouble getting it to print from here and I’ll see what I can do about posting it on Dropbox or something. Save the image to your computer and then try to print it. Happy hunting!

    • Imani Richards

      Thank you so much! You’re so thoughtful. I’ve been calling TRU for days and still no Ro-bow. Hope they get some in before the coupon expires.

      • mindee

        I found him tonight and I used the coupon. It even stacked with the TRU coupon I had. I had to show the cashier the image of the coupon on my phone so she could zoom in to see the expiration date. She had to enter it manually, so take them a printed copy and save the image on your phone. Let me know if you want me to email it to you or something. 🙂

        • Imani Richards

          Thanks, I already saved the image to my phone. By-the-way, what location did you find Lost Imagine Mines?

          • mindee

            Westover Hills/151 area in San Antonio, TX

  • Dan Davis

    Hey there friends, I live here in Lincoln Nebraska and last Friday (Sept. 15th) I went to Game Stop to pick up the Lego Dimensions that was released on Wed. While I was there I saw that they had 2 Ro-Bow Lost Imaginite Mines. I did not check to see if it was register locked because I was one of the dumb ***** that was so impatient that I paid the doubled price on Ebay about a month ago. But from the sounds of the other comments I am sure they are locked. I might stop into TRU and Target to see if they have them but since I already have mine I would only be doing it to report to all of you what I found.

    • Imani Richards

      Thank you for letting us know! I went to GameStop yeasterday and they didn’t have any when I looked on the shelf and when I asked the clerk.

  • Jason Tucker

    There is some glitch at Toys R Us that is saying the Row Bows are locked and not supposed to be sold until December. That is WRONG!!!! I talked to the store manager and she said they are definitely supposed to be sold asap and she made sure I got one by overriding it at the register. That was here in Raleigh, NC. You have to have the newest update (patch) or Row Bow will not play however. Good luck!

    • dgl14

      Robow worked on my portal

    OMG! I just got my hands on this beautiful guy. The Westover Hills TRU in San Antonio, TX has 5 left. They had to do the override, but didn’t give me a problem since they seemed confused about it having a December sell date. I’m sure it helped that I explained it was supposed to have been released a long time ago.

    The coupon I posted down the feed WILL work, but they’ll have to enter it manually. Take them a printed copy to keep and show them the image of the coupon on your phone so they can actually read the fine print and verify the expiration date. Since it was a manufacturer coupon, it stacked with the 15% off a regular priced item TRU coupon I had. I used those plus a $10 TRU reward and a gift card to make him free. Huzzah!

    • Imani Richards

      Nice!

  • Imani Richards

    Does anyone know if Lost Imaginate Mines is a TRU exlusive? I was wondering if I could get one at a GameStop, Target, or Amazon.

    • Jeremy Cline

      I’ve heard of People spotting it at GameStop and target in some areas .Amazon You can find it outside United States in various countries but it’s going to cost you more .

      • Imani Richards

        Thank you Jeremy!

      • Imani Richards

        I was able to get 2 LIM packs at a local TRU. No need for Amazon, Target, and GameStop anymore.

    • Dan

      This won’t help Americans But I saw something very weird in Australia today!!
      1 Lost Imaginite Mines at EBgames (GameStop) all by himself and even stranger than that Superchargers!! Are showing up at BigW stores over here!! This is the most Skylanders action in months over here coincidentally released during school holidays lol it leaves me with hope that we might see the last 5 creation crystals if we’re lucky and super patient 🙂

  • Enigma

    SUCCESS!!! Called my local TRU and gave the rweb code (thank you Mindee) and was told they had two Imaginite Mines on the floor. I arrived half an hour later, and they had already sold one of them, but I was able to snag the last one! Strangely enough, IT WAS NOT REGISTER LOCKED. I kid you not. I was met with no resistence, I was able to walk in and out. Couldn’t be happier to have a complete collection of Senseis. I’m about to dive into the level, can’t wait!

    P.S. I want to personally thank you, Matt, for running this fantastic website and keeping us fans up-to-date. I’ve been using your site since SWAP Force was announced, and you have helped me successfully find and enjoy each figure from that point on. The work you’ve done will not be forgotten.

    • mindee

      Yay! You’re welcome. Hopefully you were able to use the coupon I posted, too, to save a few bucks. The thanks totally goes out to Matt for running the site and keeping us all connected and updated!! Thanks from me, too! 😊

      • Jeremy Cline

        I was lucky my local tru has 6 in stock.They just looked up with R web # over the phone which didn’t work a few days ago as actually have them lok it up on a PDA and their holding one for me .I tried to print off the $5.00 off coupon but it wont print off the writing on the coupon .Have a copy on my phone .Any help would greatly appreciated.

        • mindee

          That’s really odd. Is it not printing anything at all? It’s going to be a little blurry because of the quality of the original image, but that’s the best the corporate office would give me. Try a different printer, maybe? Or try changing to landscape instead of portrait and tell it to fit to page, that’s what I had to do. Hope this helps.

          • Jeremy Cline

            It prints the images but not the actual paragraph that states the disclaimer .Do they need them actual coupon or would a digital version work alone .I have crappy looking prints but that’s it.

          • mindee

            Maybe call your store and ask customer service if they will take the printed copy and tell them you have a better looking version on your phone? The lady at my store put it in manually after she was able to read it clearly off my phone. I think they might have to have a physical copy to turn in with their cash drawer, but I could be wrong. That’s why she put mine in manually and kept the crappy looking print out. I’m sorry you’re having trouble getting it to work, I think the people at the corporate office of Menchie’s yogurt thought I was nuts when I asked for a better version than they sent out to their email list. They say the one I posted was the best copy they had. Wish I could do more to help.

          • Jeremy Cline

            Got it to work thanks for sharing the coupon .

        • chewymurphy

          Wait, what $5.00 off coupon are we talking about?

          • Jeremy Cline

            Mindee was nice enough to share a coupon on this thread .

          • Jeremy Cline

            It’s a $ 5.00 discount on skylanders adventure pack Mindee shared here .

    • Dan

      You the man Matt !!

  • JimyMahr

    If someone in the Tampa Orlando area sees one, please post. I’ve tried three different TRU’ s with no luck, and thanks to Irma hitting last week, I’m terrified that Florida TRU’ s didn’t bother putting in an order.

    • Chad Baker

      i am on the phone now with TRU in Brandon Fl and they are trying hard to find something out will let you know what they say. i am in lakeland

      • Chad Baker

        she is saying that it could be a few weeks before they get it in Brandon and the Wesley Chapel store but not showing the Lakeland store on the list at all. They are saying because of the storm things have gotten pushed out. Hope that helps

      • JimyMahr

        Just got off the phone with them. They said the DC had 1000 in stock and 4k on the web. Better than last I heard, which was nada.

        • Chad Baker

          she told me to keep checking back and use the rweb # that way they can look it up easier

      • JimyMahr

        Brandon had 4 more. Got in there Sunday morning

      • JimyMahr

        Terrible place to put this, but since I dont know if there are PMs on here, I had one held at Brandon for you.

    • Frances Swartz
      • JimyMahr

        Thanks, but they are already put by the time I got this. 😢

        • Frances Swartz

          Did you find any over the weekend?

          • JimyMahr

            Got mine in Brandon. After the dissapointment in WC, I called there and they were oddly specific for a TRU phone call: “On the truck we just got in, unloading this evening, on the shelves in the morning.” Got there, and, oddly enough no one else was lined up waiting to get their mitts on them 🤔.

    • Imani Richards

      Florida got hit by a terrible hurricane. So it may take a little longer for it to get to your store.

  • Tony Hendrix

    Victory! Using the UPC provided above, and had my local TRU (Spokane Valley, WA) search for stock, and Wednesday they told me a truck would arrive Thursday with some. Knowing that stuff almost never gets from the truck to the floor the same day, I waited until this morning (Friday) to visit TRU. After not finding any on the floor, I asked a salesperson if she knew if they had arrived: she thought that the answer was no. I had another salesperson to search the UPC again, and although he had originally thought everything from the truck to have been already stocked, the computer said 6 on hand, so he went in the back and returned with the case. I bought the one we need, but there were 5 left as of 1 hour ago. Interestingly, the above provided “R”Web# did not get any results at my TRU. While I was there, I looked through the creation crystals to see if any of the last 5 had arrived, but they had not. Has anybody sighted any of them?

  • Jeremy Cline

    Make sure you get a sale associate that knows how to actually look it up on a PDA and not just the website use the R web# 279146 .I called monday and they couldn’t locate it with any info .I also called toysrus customer service on the phone and they were unable to locate the inventory.Persistence pays off took 3 phone calls before an actual person answered the phone .Good luck everyone 6 per a store seems like what they are stocking .Thanks for all the help everyone.Thanks Matt for all the help tracking down all skylanders. Now the hunts on for a Snes classic.

  • Kevin Holladay
  • Billy Foreshee

    Can confirm LIM around the St. Louis area. The Sunset Hills Toys ‘R’ Us had six in stock(now four since I picked one up for me and my cousin). Called right before I picked up my son from school and I gave them the ‘R’ web # and they was able to find it in their inventory. So I would recommend using it during calls to help them out. Now just waiting on the last four Crystals and a retail version of normal Chompy Mage! Happy hunting everyone 🙂

    Just yesterday last night on my birthday, September 21st that is, is when I scored these two puppies at a TRU in California. The first TRU that I went to on 9/20 said they had 6 LIM packs in stock when I called beforehand to put them on hold. When I got there they didn’t even have them ready for me on hold behind the customer service desk. There weren’t even any on the floor. So when they went to the back to look for them, they couldn’t find them and left the store empty handed after leaving my name and phone number for a courtesy call when they finally found them.

    In the meanwhile, while I waited for their call, the next day I called a different TRU store who told me they had 5 in stock. I then tripally confirmed with them that they actually had them in stock and were touching and seeing them with their own eyes before I came all the way there to pick them up.

    When I arrived, they not only had mine on hold at the customer service desk, but they also had 3 more on the shelf. I bought 2 sets leaving 3 more left in stock. I was so happy to have found and and purchase these on my birthday.

    When I went to pay for the LIM packs, I used my 20% off coupon on one regular priced item, I also used my $20 TRU reward dollars, in addition to the 10% off every Thursdays for TRU Mastercard holders, and the $5 off Menchies coupon from @mindee. Thanks again mindee! So after all discounts and coupons, I ended up paying a total of $30.11 for 2 LIM packs. Thats like getting one FREE or 2 for the price of one. I cleaned up!!!!

  • Imani Richards

    Can anyone remind me of how many and what the names are of the last set of creation crystals? I know one of them is the magic Claw.

    • ezmax

      The air acorn, the fire wing,Angel,tech pyramid, light wing,Angel earth rune.the magic claw was part of the eight pack and I consider them a release

      • Imani Richards

        Do you mean:
        1. Fire Angel
        2. Tech Pyramid
        3. Light Angel
        4. Earth Rune and
        5. Magic Claw
        ????

        • Erich

          No. He just listed the crystals in the 8-pack. I don’t think he realizes your question. I’m not sure which ones haven’t come out yet.

          • Erich

            I’m an idiot. Misread his reply. Yes. Curate info. He even included the 6th they only came in the rare 8-pack.

          • Imani Richards

            Thanks Erich!

    • There are only 5 unreleased Crystals.

      They are the five Crystals without pictures on this page: http://skylanderscharacterlist.com/imaginators-figures/

    • mindee

      Air acorn
      Earth rune
      Fire angel
      Light angel
      Tech pyramid
      Magic claw (released as part of the 8 pack, which most of us don’t have, so it might as well count as not released yet. Lol)

      Five: Should the Fire Angel, Light Angel, Air Acorn, Earth Rune, and the Tech Pyramid.

    • Zym

      I was lucky and got the magic claw when people were first breaking apart the 8 pack to sell the dark crystal for $$$ and the rest for $10 (+$5 shipping) each. I did find pics of the 5 missing that I carry in small print of in my wallet…I can dream right? Here ya go and I tossed in the magic claw at the end. Okay Activision, one more release for Christmas….let’s call it the Skylanders Care Package and should contain the following: The Three Missing Yawn Traps, The Five Missing Creation Crystals, and if you want to toss in a character…Heartbreaker Buckshot would work for me. I know the only other piece that doesn’t register correctly is the platinum treasure chest, since the special flag wasn’t raised but I’ll let that one go.

        Thanks Zym! I totally agree with you all the way. Lets not forget that volcanic vault and original version of Thrillipede.

        • Zym

          I put them under rare, but released. Volcanic vault was a lucky pickup since I had no clue and just picked the game up at Best Buy. It is only really useful in the first two games. Thrillipede also had that small trickle in the states, but not really consumer worthy. Of course Chompy Mage was Amazon only (Matt warned us that the Amazon exclusive rumor may be true…thanks Matt). I even still have my Target Reservation UFO Hat. That was funny, I turned in the card when I got the game, found out the card worked in the game, so I ran back and they gave me my card back. The only other rare non-chase I can think of is the EB Hot Streak since it’s a variant that loads how it looks but was never available in stores. All other variants could be found in stores. The only other piece we keep in our set is the McDonalds’ Kaos…’cause it’s cool.

          • Imani Richards

            I specifically bought the Target Reservation Card for Swap Force because I read that It had in game content on it. So I just bought the card for $1 not really wanting to reserve the game.

    Millville/Vineland NJ Toys R Us has three left as of this posting.

  • Ed Hopes

    I just got mine at lunch in West Des Moines, iowa. The lady at Toys R Us had them in the back and told me they were on hold til December. I told her that other Toys R Us were selling she checked said yes I was correct. So she brought out a few boxes. 2 boxes had skylanders on them and a street date of 12/15/17 she wouldn’t open them for me…so what’s coming in December?

  • ToyZebra

    No luck so far. They came and went at the TRU I checked. Checking Game Stops has been worthless. They looked at me liked I was asking for a two-headed pink skunk.

  • the dark one

    My brother went to Toys’R’Us and managed to score one, they had four there on shelves available to buy. I just can’t wait for Chompy Mage to get a proper release then I can complete my entire Imaginators collection!
    (With the exceptions of creation crystals of course.)

  • Jeremy Cline

    Just got an email this morning from toysrus saying the product is discontinued and no longer available online or in store .But it’s ironic as I bought one this week and their were 5 left .So if you locate it buy it right away because as soon as the scalper hear about this they will buy them all up .

  • Patrick

    Of course the one time I don’t check this site for a couple weeks I miss the big news. Luckily my TRU in SW Michigan had a couple when I stopped in there today. Thanks Matt and thanks for the coupon Mindee!

    • mindee

      You’re welcome! Glad you finally found it! 😁

    The kids and I were successful finding Ro-Bow at TRU in Tukwila, WA. They had 5 on the shelf so that’s not bad.

  • RLahey

    Lost Imaginite Mines Adventure Pack Ro-Bow – Yaaaaay!! I found Ro-Bow. I have been looking for the past 2 months, saw it on eBay for $65.00 and another Toy store for $65.00 and that is soooo over priced and I’m not paying that. Found it this past Saturday (10/07/17) at Toys-R-Us here in Illinois for the regular price of $29.99. Just so happen to go into the store for something else and my Grandson saw it on the shelf, he was soooo happy! I have been searching the Toys-R-Us website daily and it never came up but they had 6 on the shelf. Go figure???

  • RLahey

    Lost Imaginite Mines Adventure Pack Ro-Bow Yaaay I found Ro-Bow.

  • Commander BB Shockwave

    I bought him like a MONTH ago in Hungary. Why does the USA of all place not have him yet?

    • Zym

      Bad supply and demand projections maybe. I think they make too much at the start then they have too much on the shelves not selling and by the time the tail end products come out, the stores don’t want to buy product that is no longer moving. Just a guess. For me, it doesn’t bother me who get’s it first, just as long as we all get it.

      • JimyMahr

        You summed up Activision’s supply chain plan. 5 million water traps clogging shelves were why we never saw Yawn traps.

        The projections stem along the lines of selling to kids who want the new thing, coupled with Xmas sales. After the start of the new year, they are only aiming to keep their pegs filled. Anything not sold in the first glut of release is the dreck we deal with the rest of the release schedule until the next game releases and we repeat the cycle.

  • Imani Richards

    Does anyone know if Activision is still accepting orders for custom print figures? If so, what is the website again?

    • Zym

      Not a website, I think it’s only through the creation app on your phone. You create a skylander in game and chirp it to your phone. I have no clue if they are still printing though.

    • Erich

      The answer is no. No more shirts, cards, or figures are being made. It truly is the end of days.

  • ToyZebra

    Finally found it, and at a store I already checked two or three times. I thought their supply had come and gone, but there were three on the shelves. So if you haven’t found one, maybe check your TRU again. Could be a few more are moving through the supply chain.

    • ToyZebra

      Wow. That’s a surprising find.

  • LittleAlienmom

    Just got my Lost Imaginite Mines at the TRU in Columbia, SC. They even let me have the $5 off, even though the coupon was expired.

  • J. R. Jones

    TRU in Georgia had several on the shelf finally! Happy hunting everyone.

  • LittleAlienmom

    Just got the TRU big book of toys, they have LIM in the book saying only at TRU
