Lost Imaginite Mines

We are finally starting to see some movement from the Lost Imaginite Mines Level Pack.

eBay

I have seen one legitimate listing with the product in-hand from Germany. So it appears that some European locations are starting to get it in stock.

Mighty Ape

An Australian site called Mighty Ape has another legitimate listing.

Lost Imaginite Mines on Mighty Ape (Australia)

They have a release date listed for this Friday (May 26th), but I have heard that some orders started shipping already.

I'm not sure if they ship to the US, but I'm sure it would be very expensive if they did and probably not worth the extra cash.

YouTube

If you want to see what this level looks like and you don't care about spoilers, I know there are already some gameplay video of the Lost Imaginite Mines on YouTube.

However, if you prefer to wait and be surprised like I do, happy hunting!


  • Gremlin

    Could you fix the links in the emails that you send out. They are usually broken.
    Otherwise this is great news!

    • I don’t have direct control over that email. It is created and sent out automatically by YouTube. If you click on the links from the video description on YouTube they all work just fine.

  • Zero_IYAD

    Any info on Blaster Tron & Tidepool release dates outside of Target stores?

    • Nothing official. Best guess is that we’ll see them about the same time that we see Lost Imaginite Mines in stores.

      • Zero_IYAD

        Thanks for replying Matt.
        Starting to get worried here since I can only order from Amazon or TRU ((international Visa card issues >__< )).

        • D77

          I saw Blaster Tron & Tidepool at my local Walmart today. I found it quite odd because this is only the third stocking of Imaginators I have ever seen there. Most figures have never touched their shelves.

  • Zym

    Took a break from Skylanders while waiting for LIM and have been playing BOTW on the Switch. Tried to play Skylanders this weekend and it was soooo difficult. The buttons between BOTW and Skylanders are completely different. I keep trying to use triangle to jump now. Anyways, thanks for the update Matt. Just as a side note, if Matt’s hunch is correct and they officially release Blaster Tron and Tidepool the same time as LIM everywhere, make sure you dig through the crystals to find any new ones.

    • MrMinderbinder

      Argghhh… I’m going to be so bummed if they fail to release the last five crystals. I tracked down all of the others (including the Magic Claw, Dark Rune, and Life Rune), and at this point I’d probably pay through the nose to finish the collection.

      I even paid the premium price to get ahold of a copy of Regular Chompy Mage. I didn’t order the five-villain pack, and buying just ol’ Chompster was, like, $45. Not the first time I’ve overpaid for a hard-to-find Skylander, and probably not the last. I’m still trying to stay out of the Chase Variant kerfuffle, but knowing me, I’ll probably be after them this time next year.

      • Zym

        I’m doing good this round, the only overpriced item I got was the magic claw for 20 (okay, I’ll count the dark crystal three pack and pain-yatta double pack as over-payed as well since I paid for crystals I didn’t need but the kiddo used)

        • Imani Richards

          Where did you find the magic claw?

          • Zym

            Someone broke apart an eight pack to sell the dark crystal a long time ago 6+ months. The dark was going for $55 and they were selling the other 7 for $15 each. So I got lucky since they didn’t know the magic claw was rare….now more rare than the dark. Just checked eBay every day until it appeared.

          • Imani Richards

            Nice!

  • dgl14

    Will the stores might bring in Lost imaginite Mines on friday, because today I tried to look if they got to Ohio early, and continue until friday

    • Imani Richards

      Is this a question you’re asking or just a statement?

    • Jim

      I would not bet on the stores having this. The 3 Wal-Marts in my area have not gotten anything new in almost two months, and the other retailers have a very small stock. Target, Toys R Us, and Gamestop got parts of wave four. I think the best option would be on-line only retailers like Amazon as they don’t order excessive amounts like the brick and mortor retailers.

    • Zym

      I don’t think Matt has posted a US release date yet. But it doesn’t hurt to start checking on Friday and Sunday at TRU. Personally, while I want it, I’m just going to wait. I can still pick up CTT at a few stores here so I’m just going to wait to see LIM in the stores. Not paying $$$$ for this online.

  • Mark Patterson

    This is available in the U.K. now, will pick one up after work and send in some box shots @matt

  • Josh Rosenkranz

    I’ve ordered mine off eBay from the UK. I’m from the US.

  • Froyop 12

    🇬🇧 has it online now
    eBay

  • Keri Marie Hartmann

    eBay is showing that someone in TX has some in hand if you want to pay $40 🤑 more than retail. 😵😷💀 Delivery date 1 Jun.

    • Yeah. I wouldn’t pay those prices.

  • Commander BB Shockwave

    Odd, Activision on Amazon Germany doesn’t have it yet… so why would a random ebayer have it? Hope this one makes it out to Hungary too. We missed out on ALL of Wave 3 and they just moved on to Wave 4 like nothing happened. Why don’t these **** distributors think of the collectors?

    • They are currently being sold in stores in Germany (and a few other countries). It’s not a big surprise that eBayers over there have them.

  • Commander BB Shockwave

    Also, odd that you did not post any news article on the whole Lightcore Barbella “leak”. The photo seems rather genuine. Guess we will know for sure whether it is true on E3, whenever that is.

    • Erich

      Does it seem genuine? It’s blurry as anything. Seems a little sketchy. If I need to make my fake figure look more legit, I’d take a blurry photo.

  • Imani Richards

    Did anyone out there find the Lost Imaginate Mines adventure pack yet?

    • bryan wildman

      I am also curious in Canada. Could there not be more transparency in when (date) and where (stores and country) this pack will arrive on shelves? We have never collected while a series was being released. Got into Superchargers late and backward collected to s1 from there. Thanks for any help.

  • Imani Richards

    Does anyone know if I were to get my Swashbuckler Imaginator 3D printed what kind of legs or bottom would it have? Since swashbucklers have no legs I was just wondering what it would look like. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d1241223b405addd27dcc9a022aefe01e555e7746b88acf2d731f6b078a3645c.png

    • VideoGamer1212

      I don’t know for sure, but I would imagine it would be something like Ghost Roaster.

      • Imani Richards

        Oh ok thanks! That’s a though.

  • dgl14

    This is not fair, why is robow not in the states, it feels like someone put a curse on me

    • Imani Richards

      That’s probably why they call it Lost Imaginate Mines because it’s a Lost item in the United States and only an Imagination in our Minds. Lol!!!

      • dgl14

        Hahaha very funny so funny I forgot to laugh

    • Erich

      Don’t worry. It’s a download level. They spent money making it. They will ship here. It just goes in a funny order sometimes. It’s only fair that other Skylanders loving countries get some stuff first! Be patient.

      • dgl14

        It is not the level it is robow I want to complete my collection

        • Erich

          I understand that. I’m saying because they went to the trouble of adding a level, the odds of the figure coming to the states is much higher.

    • Imani Richards

      Awww maybe it was the Cursed Tiki Temple that did it. Lol!!!

  • Courtney Maria Kauling

    Don’t know if this has been posted yet but Blaster-Tron and Tidepool are now at Toys R Us in Canada! 🙂 No sign of the adventure pack yet though

    • Sammysam

      I don’t know from which region in Canada you are Courtney – but it’s the same status in Quebec.
      Toys R Us have plenty of both BlasterTron & Tidepool in store (well, in the 3 stores I usually go to for skylanders), but it’s not listed on their website. Haven’t seen any at Walmart though.
      And no sign of the Ro-bow adventure pack yet.

      • Courtney Maria Kauling

        The Toronto area 🙂
        That’s good, so these guys are at least hitting in two provinces!!

        • bryan wildman

          I am in London Ontario. So if any of you guys in Canada spot Ro bow in stores pleeeeeaaase post where. Just waiting for this to be over lol. My son’s collection. I think they are pretty cool too but collecting them all can wear on you. Thanks everyone!

    • JimyMahr

      Wal-Mart in FL just got them in as well. I have a pic for proof, but, well, laziness is winning out. I’ll post it if no one believes me. 😐

  • Tyler Vanek

    Has anyone else noticed that every skylander has no more than 4 fingers/toes/claws/whatever you call them on each limb? Please tell me if you find one with more.

    • Imani Richards

      Yes! That’s the way Skylanders have always been.

    • Froyop 12

      I never noticed that.😂

    • Zym

      I’m not going to go check, but this is a design choice. When you want to give more detail to fingers on 3D figures, you need to make them thicker. Skylanders design seems to have the larger hands and feet so 5 large fingers would make for a wide hand, plus they are not human so they don’t have a finger restriction. So the only “human” character that is required to have 5 fingers is Donkey Kong. DK comes from Earth so 5 fingers for him. That being said, I have no clue on the history of Dr. Neo Cortex so I don’t know if he always had 4 fingers in all the Crash games or not.

      • MrMinderbinder

        Curses! I just went through them all to check, and Zym had already come to the right conclusion. Yes, the only one is Donkey Kong. Fist Bump is a toss up, as each hand has over a dozen mini-extremities. However, the concept of cartoon characters having four fingers rather than five is really quite old. It’s there with Disney (Mickey, Donald, Goofy, etc.), The Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, South Park, The Flintstones, just about everything on Adult Swim or the Cartoon Network… for some reason, it’s just the common convention with cartoon characters.

        • Tyler Vanek

          I know, but it seems quite weird when a human figure, like Kaos, has four fingers.

          • Zym

            Just keep reminding yourself that Kaos isn’t human…don’t be fooled by the human flesh tones. For some reason I’m reminded of the Avatar movie. All the blue people had four fingers except the ones that were human, they had five.

          • MrMinderbinder

            So you’re saying that the characters in Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, South Park, The Flintstones, etc. are not human? Whether man or beast, almost all cartoon characters with fingers have four per hand.

            Frankly, I’m not quite sure why they decided to give Donkey Kong five. Sure, he’s connected to humans, but there’s absolutely nothing that says human or even humanoid characters have to have the standard human number of fingers or toes. Cartoons pretty much never follow rules of human biology. Look at their ridiculously big eyes, big heads, impossibly proportioned bodies – there’s no reason to think the artists are going for accuracy.

          • Zym

            Of course they are all human, but a Simpson style character would look odd with 5 fingers, that would make for either a wide hand or skinny fingers that don’t match the overall art. DK has 5 fingers because in all the DK games, he had 5 fingers so they were not going to break suit. That’s why I’m not sure about Cortex. I was just saying if the 4 finger human-like characters are messing with visuals, thinking of them as Skylanders instead of humans should help. More of a joke, but oh well, keeps the thread alive.

  • Zym

    So…anyone send off for new 3D printed Imaginators? Maybe if everyone posted their 3D prints, Matt could make a page for them. Unfortunately, no 3D prints for me.

    • Imani Richards

      Yes I plan to send off for my 3D prints soon. When I do I’ll definately post them here. That’s a great idea you suggested about Matt making a page for 3D printed figures.

      • Jacob Lawrence
        • Stayforeverskylanders

          That is one awesome Skylander Jacob.

          • Jacob Lawrence

            Thank you. I won it in the Undead Creator Contest

          • Zym

            That’s awesome….hey Activision I wouldn’t mind seeing a Creator Contest 2017. I still want to print mine, but I’m not sure how well it will look printed being all over-sized and having wings and stuff. Plus it will cost twice as much since if I print mine, my kid will want to print their’s…maybe if I pull the father’s day excuse….

          • Imani Richards

            It might look like a Skylanders Giant!

          • Imani Richards

            Cool! What did you win? A Free 3D printed charaster?

          • Jacob Lawrence

            Yes I won my design being printed which is Bonesaw

          • Imani Richards

            Cool!

        • MrMinderbinder

          When they had finished printing the character, did they send you a message to pick it up, telling you that “BOOOONESAAAAAW… IS READY!” ?

          • Jacob Lawrence

            No but they did send me a letter from Eon congratulating Bonesaw on graduating from Skylanders academy

          • Erich

            It’s safe to say that very few people will get this reference.

        • Imani Richards

          Nice!!!! I love it!!!!! How long did it take for you to receive it after you placed your order?

          • Jacob Lawrence

            2 months

          • Imani Richards

            OMG! 😲 That’s a long time.

  • Jackson Cohn

    WHEN WILL RO BOW COME OUT!!!!

    • Jacky

      Yes!!!! When?????

      • Jackson Cohn

        Maybe late June early July

    • Imani Richards

      I know right? We have all been waiting so quietly and patiently. I have a feeling that we won’t see the Ro-Bow Adventure Pack until July when the Skylanders franchise usually releases a new game according to their yearly game release schedule.

      • MrMinderbinder

        When did Skylanders ever release a game in July? They usually release mid-October…

        • Erich

          I think she is saying that the next game is announced in July each year. Then comes out in October.

          • Imani Richards

            Yes! Exactly.

        • Imani Richards

          Oh is it October? I may be mistaken and meant instead the franchises yearly new game announcement schedule when they have a conference or trade show.

    • Pepper

      I got Ro-Bow last week. It’s so cool! Ordered it online at MFgCollectibles

  • Dee

    Tidepool and Blaster-Tron confirmed available at Intertoys in Netherlands 🙂 Got mine today. No sight of Ro-Bow sadly.

  • Dan

    Blaster Tron , Tidepool and lost Imaginite Mines are all available in Australia .

    Got mine today from UK seller that only charged $34.91. Now I’m not recommending buying from this seller but if you can’t wait like me the option is there. They seem to add one as they sell one. Ordered on 28 May received today and everything is working. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/530417486bcadf4580d89c9d2fc88ae56bab42b56429a793a733a683a43bef4c.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/260a21f08bd01c6f3b79558c15d52860c535d4ae27e75920dd7b1fe2098f096f.jpg

    • Dan

      Not bad I’ve noticed that there is only one store stocking Lost Imaginite Mines in Australia and that’s BigW and they have only been getting 3 at each store 6 at bigger stores and out of the 9 packs I’ve seen on shelves only 3 are left and Blaster Tron and Tidepool are selling out at most stores as well although they are in greater numbers than the Robow packs and there is still way too many Grave Clobers and Painyattas clogging up shelves!?!?

  • Steph

    Has anyone in Canada been able to find this yet?
