If you made it out to Toys R Us today, some of you may have been met with a very pleasant surprise.
If you take a look at the release schedule from last year (during SWAP Force) you'll see that Wave 2 has a release date just two weeks after Wave 1. A similar release schedule was seen during the first two games as well.
What you don't see is that Toys R Us has a very special relationship with Skylanders. In fact, it is very common that they receive and are even allowed to sell new Skylanders before any other store.
Wave 2 (Early Release)
Here's what happened at some stores today:
Toys R Us received one large shipment containing Wave 1 and their special early release of Wave 2.
If employees were paying attention they would know that Wave 2 was not scheduled to go out until October 7th. This is why only some of you saw more than you expected. The rest of you (in the US) should be able to go back later this week and pick up Wave 2.
THIS IS ONLY AT TOYS R US!
I fully expect this Wave 2 stock to run out quickly. It's basically just a teaser.
You should begin to see Wave 2 regularly at Toys R Us as well as other retailers in 2-4 weeks. If you miss out on it this week R-E-L-A-X, there will be more.
In case you were wondering, Wave 2 will look something like this:
Air Hourglass Trap
Air Screamer Trap
Earth Hourglass Trap
Earth Toucan Trap
Fire Screamer Trap
Life Toucan Trap
Magic Axe Trap
Magic Hourglass Trap
Tech Angel Trap
Tech Hand Trap
Undead Axe Trap
Undead Hand Trap
Water Angel Trap
Water Axe Trap
We're just getting started. Enjoy what you picked up today and let me know what you think of the new game we've all been waiting for.
