Updated Release Date For Cursed Tiki Temple

Yesterday the official Skylanders Twitter account posted a new trailer for the long-awaited Cursed Tiki Temple Level Pack.

As you can imagine, the fans here in North America did not take too kindly to this post as it has not yet been released here even though it was originally scheduled for a March 12th release.

Why The Delay?

We don't have an official explanation for the delay and will probably never get one.

There is one popular theory though:

Activision's US Distribution Operations are located in Fresno, California which has seen a lot of flooding over the past few months.

While I have no proof, it does seem like this is something that could have affected the original release date.

New Release Date

In any case, the good news is that we seem to have an updated release date.

The fact that the official Skylanders Twitter account replied to everyone that inquired about a release date seems to indicate that they know something.

April 7th is now the target date.

Hopefully we'll start to see the Cursed Tiki Temple pack in stores soon.

As always, if you spot something in stores take some pics and send them in with a location so we can all follow this release together.

Happy Hunting!

    I replied to them to ask about street dating/register lock. Hoping they answer in case my store here gets them before the 7th. Hopefully they will answer.

  • Joshua G.

    Thanks for the news! And it comes out during my Spring break! This is so AWESOME!!!!!

  • Dennis

    Any new news about the Dark Creation Crystals? I have still yet to see any here in Utah!

    • Dark Crystals are still being found semi-regularly at Target and Walmart. All I can say is keep checking.

    • MrMinderbinder

      I’m in Utah (in Salt Lake City), and the Wal-marts and Targets both have them here. I bought two of each type (one for my, one for my brother’s family) at a Target, and there were at least 10 more on the racks.

      Of course, this was about two weeks ago. I haven’t looked recently.

      • Dennis

        Which Target?

        Sent from my T-Mobile 4G LTE Device

        ——– Original message ——–

        • MrMinderbinder

          Just off of Fort Union Blvd, between 13th E and Highland Dr.

          Also try the Wal-Mart on 9th E and about 4700 S. (cost only $7.44)

  • Jeremy Cline

    I found mine in walmart .

    • ToyZebra

      I found one at one Target and one at another Target. Beyond that I haven’t seen them anywhere else.

      • Imani Richards

        What city and state?

        • Zym

          From the posts, at least Utah, Arizona, California, and Texas. People have been finding them for weeks now so just keep checking. It took me about 4 Targets before finding them and of course it was the furthest Target. They seem to be showing up at different times so good luck.

          • Imani Richards

            Thanks Zym!

    • Imani Richards

      What City and state?

      • Jeremy Cline

        wichita ,ks

  • Steve Sweitzer

    I wonder if they will combine Blaster Tron, Tide Pool and Ro-Bow. They are being released on 4/14 in some areas of Europe.

    • Tiger XTRA

      Most likely releasing then. No point in shipping twice. It’ll be in the same shipment

  • Jackson Cohn

    It will release before my birthday perfect timing activision!?

  • Zym

    Thanks for the info Matt. Haha, this is the day my friend from Germany arrives back to the states, hopefully I find the pack before he gets here.

  • Erich

    Everyone now join me in releasing a collective sigh of relief.

    • Zym

      Taking all the CTTs off my eBay watch list…..

      • mindee

        Same here. There’s a person about an hour away from me here in TX who ended up with a case of them. Dying to know where and how they got them. No stickers on them like the other UK pictures we’ve seen, either. I was about to take a road trip to pick it up for $60. Glad I waited… If they actually show up in stores as promised, that is!

        • JimyMahr

          I’ve actually been curious about purchasing boxes from Activision myself. This would solve the problem of missing product they don’t feel like releasing. Back in the day, I know Hasbro used to sell boxes of Star Wars figures to the general public. They were quite expensive due to shipping, but after that, the price per figure was still comparable to what was in stores.

          • mindee

            I actually have a business license in my state, so I could potentially get them to sell directly to me by the case at wholesale prices. I was hoping they would be at Toy Fair in NYC so I could get insider info, but they haven’t been there the last 2 years, which of course are the years I have attended. Would love to do that and help out the group with the new stuff at less than retail prices.

    • MrMinderbinder

      Well, news is news, but I’d hold that collective sigh of relief until they are actually in stores.

      • Erich

        Hey. Now. Keep that negativity to yourself. We need some hope! Fingers crossed at the very least.

        • MrMinderbinder

          Fair enough. Fingers crossed. I’m holding on to the same hope for the last six crystals and the last three senseis.

    • Froyop 12

      Ahhhhh

    • Joshua G.

      Phew…

    • Imani Richards

      WHOOOOOSAHHHH…

    • Jacky

      AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  • Zym

    @SCL_Matt:disqus Don’t forget to add the platinum chest to your imaginators checklist (optional – move Dr. Neo to the villains).

    • Yeah. I suppose I could add it to the PDF now. I’ll add it to the main site when I have it in hand and can get a decent pic.

      While I know Cortex is a villain in the Crash games, they treat him differently here. They advertised 20 “Skylanders” and 11 Villains. That’s how they split them up. In the Skylands, Cortex is considered an honorary Skylander just like Crash.

      • Zym

        Going to agree with @mrminderbinder:disqus probably not platinum since platinum is supposed to give 20 parts. I’m leaning towards sapphire since it will keep it separate from the metal chests. Plus, maybe the next pack will have a different color so precious stones works for me.

    • MrMinderbinder

      Just wondering… are we officially calling it a platinum chest (as opposed to blue or sapphire)? Makes sense, but from using it last night, I didn’t see any indication of it having that name.

      I’m kind of wondering if there will be a chest with the Lost Imaginite Mines pack, and if it will share the same blue color. If so, this will be confusing (as you’ll have two identical toys containing different exclusive content).

      Here’s an interesting problem – I bought a few mystery chest packs because I decided that I did want one of each for my physical toy collection. To date, I’ve bought four of them. Now, I know that they’re random, so I was expecting to need to buy a few to get one of each. Still, having bought four, I’ve found two gold and two silver. How messed up is it that I can’t seem to find the supposedly common bronze chest?

  • MrMinderbinder

    Zym – just a confirmation on a question you asked last week. Maybe this was already answered, but I didn’t find it anywhere, so here goes:

    I just got my CTT pack last night, and as per your request, I put the Blue/Plat Imaginite Chest on before using Wildstorm. I can confirm that the chest DOES NOT unlock Cursed Tiki Temple. Only Wildstorm will unlock the level. I can also tell you that, while the adventure pack offers access to 80 new pieces of Imaginator gear, you only get instant access to 11 items – one piece of armor exclusive to Wildstorm (acquiring his sword requires you to get him to the Knight shrine), and 10 weapons contained in the chest (one for each Imaginator type). In fact, these 10 weapons are the only reason to have the chest (aside from wanting to collect the physical toy).

    One other comment about Wildstorm… many of us were a little disappointed in the toy for Ember – her sword was made of soft, malleable plastic that tends to droop, making the physical toy look a little ridiculous. Unfortunately, Wildstorm suffers from the same (but less extreme) problem. His sword is made of the same soft plastic, and the tip tends to bend and droop a bit. Not as noticable as Ember, but still a little disappointing.

    • Zym

      Would have been cool if would have worked, but good to know. Now when the answer is on Jeopardy, I can yell at the TV with the question.

  • MadRabbi666

    actually there are some Imaginator sets in the level: Flower Power, Chameleon, train and plane. there are new sets also unlocked when you put Wild Storm on the portal. those parts that are still unrevealed will be in the other pack, Lost Imaginite Mines (w/ Ro-Bow)

    • MrMinderbinder

      I know there are sets in the level – I said they weren’t unlocked automatically. And putting Wildstorm on the portal only unlocks a single piece of armor. The rest have to actually be discovered in Imaginite chests within levels.

      Maybe we’re using the word “unlocked” differently. Using Wildstorm “unlocks” many items, but doesn’t grant them to the player for use. It simply makes them discoverable. So, depending on what you mean by unlocked, I suppose we’re both correct.

    Went into GameStop tonight inquiring about dark crystals, but got some good news. I asked about the cursed tiki temple and it shows in the GameStop system for 05Apr release date. This was in Bellevue, NE. Happy hunting in 13-15 days.

    • Joshua G.

      Sounds cool. I should check GameStop that day.

  • Commander BB Shockwave
  • Apicklz

    Awesome! Now help point me in the right direction for the dark crystal single pack everyone.. Any ideas? Thank you so much

    • Louis

      Target and Wal-mart have them. I found the dark pyramid at Target.

      • Imani Richards

        What city and state?

        • Louis

          Bellevue, NE

  • Imani Richards

    It’s strange that some people are finding the Dark Crystals in Walmart and Target stores but they’re not online yet.

  • Kaos Theory

    Please forgive me if this is old news… I was amazingly lucky to find a Nintendo Switch this weekend (!!!). Immediately bought the Skylanders starter pack and proceeded as usual. However, while I am able to scan my Skylanders into the digital library, it seems I have to re-scan them to unlock and actually play them. Perhaps I’m doing something wrong. If not it seems as though you cannot have your complete collection on the go, as I (we all) had intended. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    • Louis

      You have to scan them two times in a row and then you will have them saved into the game. Once you scan them twice in a row they show up normally, if you only scan it once they show up shaded. The only exception to this is for the chase variants. If you have a chase variant and want to play it you will have to rescan it every time you start the game. It recognizes them as characters and special variants in the collection vault, but it treats them differently for game play. Hope this helps.

      • Kaos Theory

        Sweet!! Thank you SO much!!! 🙂
