March is turning out to be a fantastic month for Skylanders.
Last week we let you know about the first sighting of the Wave 4 Core Skylanders. Then shortly after we discovered the Wave 4 Swappers. (Although you may have missed this if you don't follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our mailing list.)
So I thought this would be a good place to bring together all the current and upcoming release information that we have.
Wave 4 Swappers
These figures were first spotted at an EB Games (GameStop's international partner) in Ontario, Canada. To date there have not been any sightings in the US.
Wave 4 Core Skylanders
These figures were first sighted at a Walmart in California. Since the fist sighting last week they have also been found in Washington, Oregon, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and most recently Texas.
I expect we should see these figures across most of the US by the end of the week.
EDIT: In the US Wave 4 Skylanders have only been found at Walmart (so far).
While that wraps up what I would call Wave 4, there are still a few more releases to be looking for.
Enchanted LightCore Star Strike
Enchanted Star Strike is widely available (at Walmarts) across Canada. We are still waiting for the US release, but it should be coming soon.
Nitro Freeze Blade
The specially packaged Spring Edition Skylanders that were up for pre-order at Best Buy a few weeks ago, had a release date of April 6, 2014. (I know this isn't March, but it's close enough.) These figures included:
So not only will we be getting a new in-game variant, but we can also get our first look at Punk Shock (who was surprisingly NOT in the standard Wave 4 release).
Jade Fire Kraken
Now this is still just speculation, but I'm really hoping to see Jade Fire Kraken come out this month. My prediction has alway been for St. Patrick's Day, but I have yet to get any sort of confirmation to back up my prediction.
Regardless of whether or not we get Jade Fire Kraken this month though, I think you can agree that it's going to be an exciting month full of Skylanders releases.
