The big news this week is obviously the release of Doom Stone.

Doom Stone can now be found at Toys R Us locations across the US as well as many Walmart locations. If you're still having trouble locating Doom Stone, he has been in and out of stock frequently at Amazon over the past two days.

We also know that Kickoff Countdown will be coming out on Sunday (May 18th) at Toys R Us.

This week we also got our first glimpse of the elusive Jade Fire Kraken. Still no details of the release, but I think this is a figure worth waiting for.

Oftentimes if you have a question about something, you're probably not the only one.

Here at SCL I get dozens of emails each week with questions from readers like you. Even though only a few dozen take the time to write in, I am guessing that many more of you have the same questions.

So here in the SCL Q&A I hope to answer some of these questions in a more public forum so that all of you may benefit. I hope to make this a weekly post, but that all depends on you. Please keep sending me any Skylanders questions you may have. I will still reply to all of your emails, but I will also post some of the answers here.

SCL Q&A

Is Thorn Horn Camo exclusive to the Arkeyan Crossbow Battle Pack?

No. Thorn Horn Camo has also been released in Triple Pack #7 which includes:

I originally expected to see Thorn Horn Camo in a Single Pack, but I think this Triple Pack is probably the last we'll see of him. I could be wrong, but that's all we know for now.

Will the US ever see Triple Packs #5-8?

Yes, although I expect the quantities to be limited.
