Wave 5 Single Packs

The only news we have this week is about Blaster-Tron and Tidepool.

We mentioned that they were going to be in this week's Target ad, but they actually hit shelves early than expected.

Target is getting an early release. It looks like most stores are receiving 4 Blaster-Tron figures and 4 Tidepool figures.

NOTE: If you need some help finding these figures at your local store, check out the video I published last week about this early release.

Once these are sold out I would imagine we'll have to wait for the full release in order to get a restock of these figures. But at that time the figures should be available from other retailers as well.


  • Erich

    Got mine a couple days ago! Now to wait for the traps left…I mean crystals. Fingers crossed they actually arrive this time…

    • Jacky

      Seriously….I am still waiting for some traps too…and crystals 🙂

  • RLahey

    Well I guess I got lucky with Blaster-Tron, I was able to order it online this past Sat. night. from Target here in Illinois. Will be delivered this Thursday. Master Tidepool is listed as being Out of Stock.

    • Jacky

      Tidepool is now available online at target.com

  • dgl14

    What about the lost imaginite mine with ro-bow if a SCL member can respond to this message

    • JimyMahr

      I think the comments in the last post said that it was being listed in Europe for later in May?

      Basically think Painyatta single pack. EU release, then a release in the US a few weeks down the line. Or, like Thrillipede, EU release, then a single pack release a year later in the US or like yawn traps with a stateside release never. 😈

      • Jacky

        Lol

      • Jacky

        I was checking if any new info was available, and I read your message again (2 days ago I reply with lol) but today…you gave me the goosebumps…I went to target.com and ordered them today. 🙂

        • JimyMahr

          Yeah, Mr. SCL_Matt made a good point at the end of SuperChargers not to play around with availability in the last wave. Wham Shell, Scratch, Yawn Traps, Thrillipede. All last waves and unless you were really paying attention you might have missed them.

          I already missed Chompy Mage, since I didn’t have money for him during first shipment, then second, they opened custom figure orders, which I wanted more, figuring, “hey, Amazon, they’ll have more.” I don’t regret the decision, but wasn’t messing around this time. 😡

          • Jacky

            My son got me into Skylanders with Superchargers, so I had a little trouble finding traps when he got into Trap Team. I found most Trap Masters online through ebay and some used on gamestop.com Still looking for Bushwhack, Enigma, Gearshift, Head Rush, Wildfire, Krypt King but at least he has one of each element so he finished the whole game.
            From Swap Force we still missing Boom Jet and Grilla Drilla. The only 2 traps missing are light and dark ( I don’t pay more than retail price, so I gues I will never get this two), all the others I got them.
            Before Imaginators, I did not used to get variants or duplicate, but since the path can not be change we have everything…even 2 Pain Yatta. I have spent a lot of $$$$$ but this is something I really enjoy doing with my son that has nothing to do with school and studying. This is a mom/son thing that not even my husband understands. 🙂
            We are crazy about Skylanders.

          • VideoGamer1212

            I would definitely check TRU for Enigma.

    • If I knew anything it would be in the article up above.

      • dgl14

        Well Ro-bow is the last one I need before Imaginators 2.0, where new skylander senseis and former villains might reveal themselves. For my thoughts for the villains, well, Id thought for gulper for water, dreamcatcher for air, chef pepper jack for fire, Luminous for light and Nightshade for dark, with bombshell for magic, and swapping Brawl & Chain from water to tech, plus for life sheep creep, tussel sprout for earth, and for undead, Mesmerelda, you think that would be good former villain senseis for 2.0 Matt

        • Froyop 12

          I want to see pepper jack that is my hope

    • Zym

      Yup, amazon.de has it listed for May 26th. I think that is what Matt posted earlier. No picture yet, just the $30 price. Nothing in the states yet, so just waiting for Matt to have the info trickle in.

  • JimyMahr

    I took no chances with this one. Buzz Wing was an “early release” for TRU then never showed up anywhere else and barely at TRU even. When it came to these two, I saw, I grabbed, I left… oh wait, yeah, I paid too. I’m such a nice guy.

    • Jacky

      I am so sad.. I don’t have any Targets around. Have to wait until TRU has them.

      • Sammysam

        You’re not alone… we had Targets in Canada a few years back,,, but they retreated back to the US … and now I have to wait for the (hopefully) actual release date for these. The kid is so looking forward to Blaster-Tron… I just hope I don’t have to pick it up on eBay 🙂

        • Jacky

          I just went to target.com and purchased Blaster Tron and Tide Pool. They only charged me $5.99 for shipping, expected delivery date May 22. I did not wanted to risk it and they are in stock, a few days ago they were out of stock for international buyers. I live in PR and sometimes shipping is awful because for some stuff we are part of the US and for other stuff we are international, politics on shipping policies…lol 🙂

          • Sammysam

            Thanks for the heads up – I looked and the price is right for each one (even in CDN$)… but it’s the 25$ shipping charges that made me hesitate 🙂 I don’t know if I should take the chance of waiting a couple of days and see if they make it here.

          • Sammysam

            I didn’t have to wait that long 🙂
            I noticed today that Blaster Tron & Tidepool are listed on the Bestbuy.ca website for pre-orders – will be shipped May 14 (on my doorstep May 17 – well that’s what the website says :)). Free shipping 🙂

          • Jacky

            Great !!! You will get it before I get mines. 🙁 lol

          • bryan wildman

            I’ve got a release date of may 26th on my order from best buy? You’ve got a confirmation of may 17th? Weird. But thanks for the heads up!

          • Sammysam

            Bryan – When I placed the order, the release date was listed as May 14 (and confirmed shipping for May17)… but I went back and checked and now it does say Release Date May 26th. I don’t understand exactly. If I check my order is still says confirmed shipping on May 17th… but I didn’t get any shipping notifications or anything… so I’m guessing it’ll ship based on the new date. No biggie, would have loved them this week, but I don’t mind the waiting… as long as I get it at retail price, I’m happy 🙂

          • bryan wildman

            Me too! Again thanks for the heads up. Got to finish the set. Minus regular chompy mage 🙁

  • Rock bd

    Hey Matt,

    I don’t have twitter and I didn’t know if there was another was to contact you, so I’m just going to comment here.

    Have you seen this?

    http://forum.darkspyro.net/spyro/viewposts.php?topic=136571&page=1

  • Froyop 12

    I already got mine at target didn’t want to risk it

  • Froyop 12

    I have a question so on amazon CCT is 19.99 but it says it takes 1-2 months to ship. Can anyone confirm this

    • VideoGamer1212

      What is CCT? Do you mean CTT (Cursed Tiki Temple)?

      • Froyop 12

        Lol sorry yes that’s what I meant

    • This happens from time to time. Typically (not always, but typically) this means that Amazon knows they have a shipment on the way, but they don’t have a specific arrival date yet. This happened a few times with the Pain-Yatta Combo Pack. When I placed my order it stated something like 1-2 months, but within a week they had given me an updated shipping date of 3 days.

      It wouldn’t hurt to put an order in to lock in the price. When purchasing products directly from Amazon, you’ll never be charged until the product actually ships.

      • Froyop 12

        Thanks

  • SkyNerd

    I went to my target and they had 4 of each. They Also had a Solar Flare Aurora, Who was the last one i needed to currently complete my collection. She was in front of BlasterTron, so i’m not sure if they restocked her, Or just found an extra one in the back, but i’m SURE she wasn’t there before, since i check every week.

  • Froyop 12

    Tidepool and blaster torn starting to pop up at amazon as well

    • Froyop 12

      Tron sorry😂

  • the dark one

    I got myself a Blaster-Tron from target yesterday and they had no Tidepools, since Blaster-Tron is a character my brother owns I picked him up and struck a deal saying he buy me Tidepool when we see her. Since there was no Tidepools when will they get a non exclusive release? I hear a week but I’d rather have an exact date.

  • Jason Tucker

    I was able to get a Blaster-Tron and Tidepool this week at Target with no problem. Thanks for helping me out with the heads up guys!

  • Froyop 12
    • Froyop 12

      Guess it comes with magic creation crystal

      • Zym

        Did you get CTT? This is on the back of the CTT box. So, Ro-Bow awesome, crystal bummer, chest … does it unlock 80 more pieces and can we distinguish between CTT and LIM chests? Finally, don’t buy it unless you see the front of the box. All these pics mean pre-sale. I’m just going to wait ’til they hit TRU or Target.

        • Froyop 12

          No don’t worry I didn’t buy it I was just pointing it put

          • Froyop 12

            Out sorry

  • Tage S. Rasmussen

    Does anyone know if there will be a single release of Chompy Mage ?

    The 8 pack where it was has never been available in Europe 🙁

  • dgl14

    Oh come on Matt we need some news it has been a week we need news

    • VideoGamer1212

      You can be sure to know that when there is news to share, Matt will report on it.

  • Imani Richards

    @sclmatt @SCL_Matt or anybody that can answer; In the Creator App, how come I can’t create legs for a Swashbucker character? There is no legs button. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d1241223b405addd27dcc9a022aefe01e555e7746b88acf2d731f6b078a3645c.png

    • MrMinderbinder

      Swashbuckler characters never have any legs. Instead, they float on a sort of ghost tail. No way around it.

      Similar deal with Ninja characters – they will have head, legs, arms, and no real body. I’m not a fan of this design, but again, no way around it.

      • Imani Richards

        Thanks MrMinderbinder. It’s so strange that I have never really noticed this sooner. Such a bumber. If I wanted to receate Washbuckler from the Swap Force game, now I know that I won’t be able to do it. I was wondwring why thwre were no octopus legs or mermaid fins.
