As it was first announced a few weeks ago, we have another Skylanders Day or rather Skylanders Weekend coming up at GameStop.

It is this coming weekend December 17th – December 18th.

Mystical Bad Juju

The big draw for a lot of fans is going to be the official release of the GameStop Exclusive Mystical Bad Juju.

Mystical Bad Juju - Skylanders Imaginators

It is featured prominently in their Skylanders Weekend ad, so I’m definitely hoping that stores have it in stock on time.

The figure is at some stores already, but it is register locked for December 17th. This is a good sign.

Skylanders Imaginators Deals

If you’ve experienced a Skylanders Day before you know that there are some pretty good deals to be had.

Starter Packs

This weekend the Standard Starter Packs are being marked down to $39.99 which is a good price.

However, the star of the show is the Dark Edition Starter Pack.

Once again the Dark Edition was a GameStop Exclusive this year. Up to this point it has been excluded from all of their sales.

This weekend you’ll be able to pick up the Dark Edition for just $64.99.

Seeing as this is the first sale we’ve had on the pack I imagine a lot of people will be interested so I wouldn’t wait too long if this is something you would like to pick up.

Single Pack Deals

In addition to the Starter Pack sales all the other Skylanders Imaginators Single Packs will be marked down.

Chain Reaction is pictured in the ad so hopefully they have some Wave 3 figures on hand.

The only major item that doesn’t seem to be on sale is the Adventure Packs.

You can view the full ad below:

Skylanders Weekend - December 17, 2016


  • Steve Sweitzer

    Target has the Crash Starter pack for $39.99 on their website too.

    • It’s all major retailers this week. Pretty sure that markdown came from Activision as the Skylanders social media accounts were advertising it as well.

    • JimyMahr

      Seeing as all Dark Editions buyers need (or want) regular Golden Queen and King Pen, I see the Crash Edition as the only way to go. 10 bucks a figure, a free crystal and a free game, which you could trade back in for money towards another figure (or in my case as leverage for my wife to let me buy a PS4 😏).

  • sterry0

    just bought the treehouse adventure pack on-line at game stop with tax + $5 shipping for $37. Was going to wait for this weekend but they had no stores closer than 75 miles that had it in stock. oh well the buy puts me in for another 14.99 off coupon.
    did pre order mystical bad juju to pick up at my local one on sat.
    my grand children are excited for sat .pa (me) the nanny for the weekend , skylanders day and santa making an appearance at their fathers bakery. oldest grand daughter every store we go in say I hope pink barbella will be here?
    little princess. and no we haven’t found any of the chasers yet.

  • JimyMahr

    Nuts. Was hoping for B1G1 free for Skylander day. Still, I need to stock up on about 12 figures, so with that and a free one every fourth figure I should be quite set for wave 4 😆

  • JimyMahr

    Just for laughs, one Skylander Day during SuperChargers they advertised the Land Racing Pack with the rest of the Racing Packs for half off. I went to my regular Gamestop and asked the manager if they had gotten any Land Racing Action Packs in for Skylanders and he said “The what?!”, understandable, it is quite a mouthful. So I showed him the Skylander Day flyer with the picture on it and all he said was ” Why would we have that?”

    Hopefully looking for wave 3 for Imaginators isn’t as dreadful, which it shouldn’t be since I now go to a different Gamestop, with a much more helpful staff, for my shopping. (Especially since I passed all of Wave 3 up at Toys R Us already)

    • Stayforeverskylanders

      I had the same experience with Jingle Bell Chompy Mage. Had to repeat it three or four times to everyone. It was humorous after a while. Now I have him so I do not need to do that again.

    • Enigma

      I had a similar experience, but the manager was cool and reserved the Land Racing Pack for me when they finally did get it. Plus, he carried over the sale! I guess it helps that I was friendly with him in previous visits…

      • JimyMahr

        That’s what made it worse. I always did my Gamestop shopping in that store and had always been friendly, even with his sourpuss self. 😭

        It turned out fine in the end though since now I peruse two other Gamestops where the Managers are a pleasure to deal with and actually offered to the same as yours did. (I ended up getting it at TRU on sale before my Gamestops ever saw it come in)

        • Melissa Altaica Bailey

          I do my best to stay friendly with my favorite gamestop learning the employees names and greeting them when I come in. It has paid off on one occasion, I have a smash hit that they found for me mint in the package that is partially decapitated. I’m hanging on to that manufacturing mess up, the top half of his head is almost off which makes his tongue very prominent.

          • JimyMahr

            Lol that’s great! 😂 I’ve only seen a small handful of small manufacturing defects. One, is my Bumbleblast who is mostly black instead of brown, the other was Swap Force Pop Fizz who, sadly, never had enough glue to keep his potion bottle in one piece, even when safely in his packaging.

          • Imani Richards

            Show us pictures.

    • Erich

      Wait!

      Why did you pass up all of wave 3 at TRU? They have them bogo half price which is better then 2/$20.

      • JimyMahr

        First, this was 12/5. They weren’t having the same sale then.
        Second, the report of Skylander day had me hoping for the days of old of B1G1 Free (15 bucks for 2).
        Third, every four I buy at Gamestop, I get the free coupon. If it had been buy one get one free, then It would have been 30 bucks for 5. As it stands now, its 40 bucks for five, or 8 dollars a piece.
        Fourth, I was on vacation when I found them. Due to my limited luggage options (I already had two carry ons) I would have had to buy another bag for checking as well. (And, no, I wasn’t going to unpack them and cram them in until they fit. I take pride in my collection, I’m not going to be the guy with super glued arms and legs and in Ember’s case, heads 😜)

        Trust me. It was a VERY hard call, but as you can see, it wasn’t just a lazy decision. 🤔

        • Imani Richards

          Don’t forget to calculate in the cost of the GameStop Pro Rewards Membership which is $15. You must be a member to get one free for every 4 you buy. It’s the cost of a Sensei character. So its like you bougght it anyway.

      • DeeBee

        No it’s not. BOGO half off is $22.98 for 2 (15.99 + 7.99) , not $20 for 2. Gamestop is cheaper. Actually, the previous sale of $22 for 2 was better they were just running.

        • Erich

          What’s sad is that I’m REALLY good at math and applying percentages and how not better the deal is.

          Good catch. My bad.

          • Imani Richards

            Lol!!!

        • Imani Richards

          You’re right.

      • Imani Richards

        You must recalculate.

  • Froyop 12

    Treehouse now online at GameStop same thumpin wumpa islands

  • Po’Boy Joe

    I got my mystical bad juju today without hearing anything about a register lock…

  • ChompyToon
    • Froyop 12

      Where did you get him

      • ChompyToon

        Hey there, I got him from a toystore in Sweden named BR.

  • Chris Justice

    Mystical Bad Juju was register locked at my Gamestop but is on site. The store let me “pre-order” so I know my copy is reserved for Saturday pick-up.

  • Patrick

    I just happened to scroll through all the “old” Skylanders on Toys R Us website because they have the buy 1 get 2 free deal going on and they had Buzz Wing in stock. Finally got him and a couple holiday variants of guys I already had!

    • JimyMahr

      My TRU got about 20 Buzz Wings in, a huge amount of Wave 2 SuperChargers and copious amounts of Riptide/Scorp/Chop Chop wave single packs from Swap Force. It makes me wonder, why weren’t these constantly funneled out during their games and two, why still no Thrillipede?

      • Imani Richards

        I know right? Maybe stores weren’t ordering them.

    • Imani Richards

      What about original Thrillipede?

      • Patrick

        No luck with him

  • Froyop 12

    Guys jbcm is online at tru

    • Imani Richards

      Yup! We got him in store already.

  • Froyop 12

    Also the crystal packs 3&4 are back in stock on amazon

    • Imani Richards

      How about 1 & 2?

  • Imaginators geek

    Matt, quick question. How do you get the “Candy Fantastic set” it said something about finding it in the tech realm. But I still didn’t get it.

    • Dan Moyer

      You have to fill the tubes with toys, or get certain combinations.Some of them seemed to come at random, which makes me think it might be a certain combination, but I didn’t get the last part until all 3 tubes were fill with toys.

    • Imani Richards

      I got mine in the Imaginators App. Lol!

    • Erich

      On the MAP, you must find the tech sensei realm that can only be unlocked by a tech sensei. Then you will find them….I think…

    • If you’ve played the Tech Realm you will have built a toy doll. It had three parts: a Head, a Body, and a pair of Legs.

      For each of these parts you had three different options to choose from. With a little math this give you the possibility of making 27 different dolls.

      You have to make each of these 27 unique dolls to collect the complete Candy Fantastic set.

      • Imaginators geek

        Thanks I got it, but it took a LOT of work

  • Jacky

    Today I saw at a TRU store, Buy 1 Skylanders Sensei, 50% off on the second. I should have waited for this type of sale…

    • Froyop 12

      Yeah bought chain reaction and buckshot

    • Imani Richards

      The sale was better two weeks ago when they were 2 for $22 @ TRU.

  • Rockburth

    If anyone is still looking for traps, our TRU in north Central Mass. has traps from the original eight elements back in stock. Still no light and dark, but maybe eventually? They’ve definitely not had anything but the water traps for months now and at B1G2 it’s a good deal if you’re looking for more to round out your collection.

    • VideoGamer1212

      Do they have yawn traps, though? That’s the real question.

      • Rockburth

        No yawn traps, but maybe if they get enough complaints Activision will finally release them in the US (or at least we can hope).

        • Froyop 12

          I hope so I am still missing a few

    • Imani Richards

      Let us know if you see any Yawn Traps.

  • JimyMahr

    Hey, SCL readers (in the US) as of 530pm, December 16th, they are again taking orders for custom figures through the creator app.
    Here’s mine: Shadow Siren

    • Imani Richards

      Looks nice.

  • Imani Richards

    I went to GameStop’s Skylanders Day today. I got Mystical Bad Juju and wanted Chain Reaction according to the store ad but they didn’t have him instore or online, so I got chopscotch instead to get the 2 for $20 deal. I also got a standard Xbox360 starter pack for $10 since I had $30 worth of GameStop reward certificates. Even though I already have the WiiU Dark Edition starter pack, I wanted to be sure to get the standard Starter Pack on Xbox360 in case Golden Queen and King Pen don’t come out as single packs. Check out my photo. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2e44a49f4b5f3d10ca39f99760b92c75b2c470b4b7d1eab98db49f02a7eac3ee.jpg

    • JimyMahr

      I hit about 5 Gamestops today and none of them had the basic Wave 3 figures 😭. Fortunately they did have Tri Tip and Mystical Bad JuJu and a handful of crystals I still needed so I wasn’t too bad of a haul. Since none were my regular stomping grounds I didn’t press the issue too much about shipments, but there is still one more day left for them to get them in 🤔

    • Jacky

      Nice, you saved a lot of money.

      • Imani Richards

        Thanks Jack!

  • Jacky

    I managed to buy Mystical Bad Juju online today, but still waiting for Pain Yatta.

  • Imani Richards

    @SCL_Matt or anyone who can answer my question. I have a question about the Myserious Antient Place (M.A.P). I saw in your gameplay video that if you chase the mice around you can drop underground revealing some underground treasure. How did you find out about this in game functionality without a Strategy Guide?

    • Erich

      I figured it out by accident. Honestly. Then once it happened, I tried all over the map.

      • Imani Richards

        Thank you Erich!

    • Yeah, same as Erich really. The first time I just fell down a hole they dug and I didn’t even realize what had happened. (I think this experience and my reaction might even be in a video somewhere.)

      Shortly afterwards though I actually saw a rat digging a hole and started putting the pieces together.

      • Imani Richards

        Got it, thanks! I just wonder how many other hidden items and places that us game players are missing when it isn’t obvious without a Strategy Guide showing us the extra hidden content.

  • sterry0

    how’s that for false advertising.chain reaction front and center on the flier? no ct of the 5 gamestop nearest to me had any wave 3 in except the mystical pre order. so only got juju and the 9 super chargers in store that grand children didn’t have yet.

    disappointing for sure. class action anyone ?

    • Unfortunately that’s something that we see all the time.

      Typically I think the people putting together the ad have little to no knowledge of the product and what has been released or is going to be released. They’re just handed a bunch of images to use for the ad over the course of the year.

    • Imani Richards

      At times GameStop will use images in the ad just to get people in the store. It’s a marketing tactic they do all the time like for instance the yawn traps.
