Well, I stopped at Target after work today to pick up my check and I went to the electronics department to see if anything went on clearance or not. So I see the Wham Shell character and remember seeing it here on Amazon for $39.99. I bought 2 for about $17. Now does anyone know if this character is rare or something as it seems retailers never have it in stock and I saw a thread about this character on CAG.

It is fairly rare. As you can see, people are bidding around $30 for Wham Shell on eBay.

I think one of the limited edition versions of wham shell is amongst the most valuable. $500 or something nutty like that on ebay.

I've searched for one locally for months now, and couldn't find it. A couple days ago, I discovered Toysrus is selling a "Skylanders Giants Castle Display Case" with a FREE Wham-Shell inside for $30. You Can order online, or stop by one of their stores. My local one had quite a few in stock. I finally got to complete my Skylanders collection from the first game.

The trouble with overypaying for collectibles is that invariably the shift comes that makes your collection's value nosedive.

Damn that is the only character I don't have from the first set. I have been looking at toysRus and gamestops and walmarts around here for him!

Ha, yeah, I'll tell that to the lady I know whose apartment is full of beanie babies.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 25, 2012 6:38:00 AM PDT
At least Skylanders is a game and has intrinsic value for that, whereas beanie babies are just junk. That being said, anyone who pays more than MSRP for one of these things needs to check themselves.

Wham shell was the last one I was missing and was lucky to find it on Best Buy, last one in store. The guy who saw me with it asked me if there was more. My sis told me I could have sold it to him for 30 or more, but I'm no scalper. And besides, I don't want to rip anyone off on a toy they want and don't have.

anyone know if there will be more Giants available for the new game than the 3 - Crusher, Swarm, & Bouncer ? I thought there would be a couple more ... I think they too could end up being hard to come by the closer Christmas gets ... I went last week & 3 stores were already sold out ... I did get 2 of the Giants, luckily.

There is Hothead and the one that comes with the starter pack Saskamazon. Target has the starter pack for $49 this week.

great deal ... did get the starter pack already, but would love to snag Hothead before Christmas - will have to keep my eyes open. I wasn't sure if Hothead had been released yet - good to know, thanks. :-)

It's not nearly as rare as the William Shattner Skylanders character.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 2:26:38 PM PST
I saw this great deal but unfortunately it isn't hasn't' come to Calgary toys r us yet

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 2:37:59 PM PST
Yes there will be 1 giant figure for each element, we already have 4, the 3 you mentioned plus Treerex who comes with the game. The fire giant hothead is still really hard to find since wave 2 hasn't been released in all stores yet but my understanding is that Nov 29th is when wave 2 is supposed to hit all stores so I would check for him then. After that we will still have 3 more giants coming, Thumpback (water), Eyebrawl (undead), Ninjini (magic).

Of the giants, we have Tree Rex, Gnarly Tree Rex, Swarm, Hot Head, Granite Crusher, Crusher, Bouncer, and Legendary Bouncer so far. Still waiting for Thumpback, Eye-Brawl, and Ninjini, but I believe those may not come out until next year. Then of the new non-giant characters, we've got Flashwing, Chill, Shroom Boom, Sprocket, Fright Rider, Pop Fizz, Punch Pop Fizz, Gold Flameslinger, Legendary Stealth Elf, the latest Legendary 3-Pack, and Lightcore versions of Drobot, Eruptor, Prism Break, and Jet Vac. Still waiting on Hot Dog, the rest of the Lightcore figures, and possibly a few other special editions. I think that's it, unless they wind up releasing more expansion packs that have not yet been announced.
