It’s a bit later than anticipated, but it looks like the Wave 3 Sensei figures have finally made their way to Amazon.

We have already seen a number of other packs being released alongside Wave 3 on Amazon. These include:

Pain-Yatta Combo Pack

But now we finally have the core figures many of you have been trying to hunt down.

These have been spotted in some capacity at most major retailers, but I know some of you were still searching so I hope this helps.

In Wave 3 you can also find:

Chain Reaction - Skylanders Imaginators

While you won’t be able to get these in time for Christmas day, I’m sure late presents will be well received.

Merry Christmas!


  • Erich

    But why now do we get a combo pack in America? The pattern (or lack thereof) has me a bit bothered. There is indeed an unbalance in the force.

    • JimyMahr

      Patterns? Activision don’t need no stinkin’ patterns.

      • Street (Street50)

        I’m not sore about the combo Skylander packs, best buy had them but I already got the characters from amazon’s villains and heroes packs.

        However i’m still very sore we hadn’t seen the 8 crystal pack. I was going to order lots of them.

  • Street (Street50)

    Made my order for Pain-yatta since he’s the only one from this wave that i’m still missing. But I think I should ask now if we know if imaginators max out at 50 or do they go higher? I think we need to find someone who’s been current up to this point or probably ordered Pain-Yatta from another country. So someone should have the answer if if their level went to 51 or not. But considering there are 5 more characters to come out and 3 more variants I doubt they’d leave it at 58. I assume it’s either 50 or 55 when Imaginators max out.

    • It seems that there is no limit. I know people who have made it past 50 already.

      • Street (Street50)

        I mean I think there are only 51 currently out now right? So would that mean that if they put on doubles of the exact sensei they still get a level increase?

        • No.

          Each Sensei will give you one level. Each Variant Sensei (both in-game AND chase) will give you one level.

          So Starcast will give you one level, Clear Starcast will give you a second level, but putting a duplicate Starcast will not give you a third level.

    • Imani Richards

      If Activision or Prima released a strategy guide, we would have all the information that is new with the Imaginators game.

  • Alex Perala

    Hey Matt, I went shopping the past couple days and I thought some stuff I found was rather interesting. I saw 4 orange chain reactions at target, all combo packs (Wolfgang, mysticat, and painyatta) at best buy, and there was three thrillepede figures at the same target. This was all found in Montana and I was especially surprised since there are rarely any figures around here, chain reaction was the first chase variant I’ve seen while shopping. It’s good to know though that everything is starting to ship into the U.S. maybe we might even see a widespread release of thrillepede here in the U.S.

    • Erich

      Wait. 4 of the clear variant chain reaction? Did you buy all 4? I’d like to have one

      • Alex Perala

        I didn’t buy any of them, I could care less for chase variants but I just thought mentioning them on this website would be interesting news.

        • Imaginators geek

          Really, I go crazy for them!!! You could have gotten them and sold them for twice the price. I could tell you right now that I would be happy to buy one.

          • Alex Perala

            I know other people really like them but it was a waste of money to buy them for me and I figured other locals would appreciate the chance to get the variants for themselves.

    • Geode1010

      Oh! I would like one if you could spare one… PM me if so

    • Roguebeastx8

      Orange Chain Reaction please!!!

    • Wow. This has certainly been an odd week for rare/hard-to-find figures.

    • Imani Richards

      Did you get pictures?

      • Alex Perala

        I only took a picture of the chase variants but my phone was dead so I used my grandmother’s flip phone and sent it to my friends who are also collectors. I personally don’t have the picture and I am sure my grandmother has deleted the master copy

        • Imani Richards

          Awww too bad.

  • Geode1010

    Merry Christmas to everyone reading this

  • JimyMahr

    So… Since Mr. SCL_Matt sort of started this mentioning Chain Reaction, who is everyone’s favorite so far in Imaginators? I can’t say I’ve played everyone yet, but Wolfgang barely beats out Kaos followed by (Giant) Golden Queen in third. (Ninja Edit, removed Cortex and place Wolfgang #1. Oops 🤗)

    • Imani Richards

      I’m actually still playing Swap Force.

      • JimyMahr

        Actually, before Imaginators came out I was playing Swap Force too. Too be honest, I didn’t care for it much when it came out (the wii u portal master level bug didn’t help) but there is a ton to do for 100% that I went back to try to finally finish it. I’ve come close, but honestly, hiding 60 stars behind multiplayer arena is just weak sauce…

    • Stayforeverskylanders

      1. Pain-Yatta 2.Jingle Bell Chompy Mage 3. Valentine and Easter variants (like the colorful and pastel Skylanders and, yes, I am going by looks only)

    • Enigma

      I’m really liking Chain Reaction, Buckshot, and Tae Kwon Crow.

  • Imani Richards

    Have winners been announced for the creator contests? I didn’t hear anything about who won each contest.

    • The winners have been contacted.

  • Imani Richards

    How many waves total are there supposed to be for this game?

    • Froyop 12

      5 waves

      • Imani Richards

        Thanks Froyop 12!

  • sterry0

    seeing this is the newest thread figured i share it here

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3e8c08af361699837a4d316341714d8bce12bafa5499024569ef7b453b304b3b.jpg . took this today while nannying the 4 grand children
    417 total so far, 55 spyro,47 giants,60 swap force,154 trap team,37 super chargers and 64 imaginators.
    only 8 of the chasers found so far.newest the unopened clear short cut

    • JimyMahr

      LoL looks about right. Volcanic vault in there? Not counting chasers, that’s one of only two pieces I’m missing (other is Gold Flameslinger).

      • Froyop 12

        I have both of them

        • sterry0

          now that you mention it volcanic vault wasn’t in the pic.i know we have it but so tiny must have left it in the carrying case. Had all 4 children 8 thru 2 years old going hey pa help me with these toys as i was setting it all up.
          Still adding to the stack,just got giants golden flame slinger cheap , heavy metal sprocket and metallic shroomboom.
          with the two coupons from GS, they want the land and sea racing superchargers packs.we get 6 figures instead of just bad juju and pit boss. as we have other variants of them.
          we have the spyro adventure stat card set complete.we need 3 stat cards for trap team.have many doubles to trade if any one has the legendary bushwhack,bat spin and trail blazer cards.
          still need around 30 cards from each of giants and swap force sets.

          • JimyMahr

            You know what drove me crazy? My Pirate Seas Adventure pack came with two Ghost Sword cards and no Pirate Seas card. I suppose I could have called Activision and asked for the card, but at this time I was still a little concerned about their customer service, but then, lo and behold by Swap Force, Toys R Us was basically giving old SSA adventure packs away and I just bought a whole new set. It had the right cards in it.

            Long story short, aside from them, I have no doubles to trade out. Sorry ☹️

    • Erich

      Here’s my latest shot of the group. I didn’t count them. Prized possessions are clear short cut, all three clear hot dogs, chase variant roller brawl and her dune buggy, flocked stump smash, and Easter flocked trigger happy. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2f7f50ee7e693cf40df94f499ca7a604c6de597b063ee722bc961e3337b7b878.jpg

      • JimyMahr

        I love how Spring Dive Bomber just sticks out like a sore thumb in the mix of blue and green on the Water shelf.

  • CHRiS

    @SCL_Matt:disqus , Any more info on this “Blue” Pain Yatta variant? I have the others and wondering if this is real or FAKE because no other images or info has been given like others. Thanks in advance. Merry LATE Xmas & Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR !

    • Froyop 12

      Yeah you go on the internet there is no pictures

    • Enigma

      Check listings on eBay.

      • CHRiS

        Link? I haven’t seen any pain yatta variants anywhere..

        • Enigma

          I don’t have a link right now, however I have seen them in the past. Unfortunately, at the time of my comment, there weren’t any listings on eBay with the variant. But they do pop up occasionally.

    • It’s real.

      http://skylanderscharacterlist.com/rock-candy-pain-yatta/

      I’m calling it Rock Candy Painyatta.

      While it’s rare, there have been multiple sightings.

      • CHRiS

        Waiting for it to appear to add to the others. Employee Exclusive Dec-Ember will be here by Friday.. 😉

      • CHRiS

        SCL_Matt: heres a better pic for ya !

      Since people are showing their collections, which look great, I figured I would show part of mine (I have smaller display out of camera range).

      • Stayforeverskylanders
        • JimyMahr

          You either don’t have pets or the most well behaved animals ever. I literally have to lock my closet cause I know my cats/dogs do nothing but look for opportunities to eat my collection.

          • Stayforeverskylanders

            I have a well behaved cat. The only figure she has tried to chew on is Kaos, who deserves it for all the bad he has done, but she never leaves a mark.

        • Geode1010

          Yay perplexus!!

  • Enigma

    I’m not sure when the next article is coming, so I figured now might be a good time to share my final Waves 4 and 5 prediction. This time, there is evidence and reasoning behind them.

    I’ve been thinking about this ever since I saw Wave 3 boxes. If you look on the back of the box, you will notice 4 figure advertisements: Bad Juju, Flarewolf, Grave Clobber, and Buckshot. Wait. Grave Clobber? Yes. Grave Clobber! This is strange, since Grave Clobber isn’t out yet. But it also STRONGLY suggests he will be in Wave 4. How? If you look back to SuperChargers, Splat and the Splatter Splasher were Wave 3 releases, yet their boxes advertised Bone Bash Roller Brawl and the Tomb Buggy, both Wave 4 releases. That’s enough to convince me.

    Pain-Yatta should be in Wave 4 as well. This time, the evidence is his combo pack. Back in Wave 1, Mysticat was SUPPOSED to have a day 1 combo pack. That didn’t happen (the combo pack was released later, around the time a typical Wave 2 release would take place), and although the single pack was released day 1, it is considered a Wave 2 figure. In other words, Mysticat combo=Wave 1, Mysticat single=Wave 2. Combo pack was released before the single (theoretically). Same principle with Pain-Yatta. The combo was SUPPOSED to release with Wave 3 in America, making it a Wave 3 release. Theoretically, the combo pack should be released before the single pack, and that is true in some parts of the world. Thus, it can only be said that both the combo pack and the single pack will be released in Wave 4.

    The final two figures that I will predict to be in Wave 4 are Ro-Bow and Wildstorm. The evidence? Just recently, within a day of this post even, an Activision employee release a picture of Wildstorm and Ro-bow figures in-hand. While this person does work at Activision and does get things early, this confirms that the figures have been in development, only further implying they will be released in Wave 4. I don’t have the pic, but a simple Google search of ‘Skylanders Imaginators ro-bow and wildstorm’ should lead you to it one way or another.

    Naturally, this leaves Tidepool and Blaster-Tron for Wave 5, which was my very, very first guess back when the entire roster was revealed. Please note, these are only PREDICTIONS, even if there is sufficient evidence. We don’t know exactly what Activision will do, but we can guess.

    Also, Happy New Year to all!

    • JimyMahr

      Your thinking is very sound, but I can only hope you are wrong. Grave Clobber is really the only figure that truly underwhelms me, so I am hoping, that if there is a Thrillipede/Yawn Trap for Imaginators it is him. Also, don’t forget a single pack Chompy Mage still has possibilities, so let’s hope to see him Wave 4 as well. The less figures waiting to release in Wave 5, the better.

      Of course, they could still release all the characters with no problem and just stop shipping out new Creation Crystals at the end of cycle.

      • Erich

        I’m telling you jimy, chompy isn’t coming out alone. Matt and I have been warning you all year! We think the only way to get him is the 5 pack from amazon. Our main reasoning is the fact that in the description of the item it says it’s the only way to get that character.

        • Froyop 12

          I agree with Erich, I don’t think he is coming out alone

        • JimyMahr

          Oh, don’t get me wrong. I see Chompy Mage coming out in wide release as much as I see Activision not releasing a Call of Duty next year. It’s why I still don’t don’t have Tae Kwon Crow, Krankcase or Hood Sickle. (I got Wolfgang, since I can give the extra to my friend’s kid).

          Remember that Gear Shift was originally PreOrder bonus only and ended up with a release. If we get to Wave 5 and no one wants anymore Exclusive villain packs from Amazon, Activision could send Chompy Mage out into the wild…. At least in Australia 😜

          • Erich

            Hahahah. That’s true. Maybe we should stock up on chompy mages. Could put a kid or two through college.

      • Enigma

        Chompy Mage definitely is the wild card this year. I guess it was a good thing I decided to order the villain 5-pack back in October.

        But I do feel like some of the creation crystals will not be released. It’s the same situation as the Traps.

  • Imani Richards

    This may be off topic but a have a question about Swap Force as I am still playing it in 2017 but almost finished with it at 98% complete. How come my orange bottom Platinum Treasure Chest from Giants registers as Hidden Treasure Chest instead. I might be a little late to discussions regarding the Platinum Treasure Chest but I want to achieve the accolade of having all 33 of the “Other Toys” collection but some of my figures won’t register like TrapTeam Whisper Elf which works in Swap Force, but I guess I need to get the Frito-Lays Whisper Elf. Does anyone have any tips? Thanks.

    • VideoGamer1212

      I have a few Platinum Treasure Chests. None of them have ever registered as “Platinum Treasure Chest” in any game. Just the normal Hidden Treasure Chest. Also, not all of my chase variants register as a chase variant. Just as the normal standard version of that figure.

      • Imani Richards

        Whoa! Thanks for the info. Now I know not to waste my time buying another one.

    • JimyMahr

      That drove me crazy. Do you realize how many times I had to try to register Platinum Treasure Chest? “Hidden Treasure Chest!” “No, I put the Platinum one on there. Or did I? Better try it again to make sure.” “Hidden Treasure Chest” “No, I know for certain I put the Platinum one on there….” It took five more attempts, plus I had to smash the regular one with a hammer to make sure I didn’t use it on accident before I realized it just didn’t work.

      On the plus side you shouldn’t need everything to complete all the collection achievements. My collection achievements are maxed and I don’t own the Volcanic Vault nor could I get the Platinum Treasure Chest to work either. And trust me, all joking aside this time, I had to register everything twice because the that horrible Wii U Gamepad bug that locked Collection Achievements.

      • Imani Richards

        Thank you @JimyMahr. I wasn’t aware that the WiiU had a bug that locked Collection Achievements.

        • JimyMahr

          I’m not sure of the specifics of the bug, but it is along the lines that if you put new figures on the portal while playing in Game Pad mode, it locks your collection achievement. I scanned about 40 of my figures, then later on down the line scanned the rest while the while the wife watched TV. AFTER I scanned them all in, I checked the my achievements and saw things like “3 Water Skylanders collected”. Uh, no, try like 15,… So anyways, then I went online and found out about the bug. You have delete your entire save off the Wii U and I was already about 80% complete, just needed the Nightmare and Collection achievements 😡😭😡😭

          • Imani Richards

            Oh darn! Im glad that didnt happen to me. I always use the pro controller for WiiU.

    • Erich

      It’ll never happen. Both treasures register as hidden. I’m not sure if some work. You could always go to Walmart and buy another which will be super cheap on clearance. Good luck.

      • Imani Richards

        Thank you Erich!

  • Brandon Dixon

    just waiting on Blastertron.
