Yeah, I was talking (read: grilling) my local gamestop about dem sidekicks and he said that they were street dated for wednesday.

Hopefully I can just buy them straight up.

YEP! My Gamestop connection called and asked if I had them. Didn't expect new figures until Feb.

That sucks, seems every store in my area got two of each.

PS: Thumpback is way better than I had hoped. My favorite now!

Bah, non of my wal-marts, toys r us's, or gamestops got any thumpbacks or eye brawls. I'm in Cali so it must be an east coast thing.

I talked with my local gamestop guy again and confirmed that the sidekicks will be a promo for a $30 skylanders purchase starting wednesday.

Unfortunately the promo does not say they can be sold individually, so unless your gamestop breaks the rules (which mine wont) you gotta cash out to get them.

Oh man I just picked up thump and eye at gamestop today just now! plus got my free sidekick with buying them!

The guy had literally just taken them out of the shipping box when I arrived and they had only gotten 2 of each character. I was very lucky, but so was my friend who I picked up the other set of them as well as the sidekick for her as well =)

So they are in Nebraska at random gamestops not all of them apparently and they only got a shipment of 2 each of the giants.

Just saw the Gamestop closest to where I work had a Thumpback and two Eye Brawls behind the counter. We definitely didn't have them where I work, so something must be weird. Some Gamestops and Wal-Marts have them?

You put the regular character on the portal first, then put the sidekick on the portal with it. It will appear in game and follow your player character around while you play/level but it doesn't do anything extra. Follows and looks cute.

Yeah. I was hoping they would attack, but alas, nope. They are Non-combat pets. So not really worth $30, but I was spending thirty bones anyway so its a nice bonus.

Red face No Thumpback or Eyebrawl here yet ...

No Thumpback or Eyebrawl here in Southwestern Ontario Canada yet ... I checked Ebgames, Wal-mart & Toysrus. Lots of wave 3 floating around. I'm not too worried though. Don't really need them until closer to Easter anyway for my son. I'll be able to get them in a month or so when they have lots left in stock. Either that or I'll reserve them @ Ebgames.

Only a few areas in Florida have gotten them in. My location has not. It's driving me crazy stopping by every store every day on my way to and from work checking to see if they have come in yet. STILL NOTHING!!!!

Finally found them at a GameStop in the next town over from me. I walked in right when they pulled them out of the box and the guy didn't want to sell me more then one and then after I starting shaking he said whatever I'll just sell them all to you. So I bought two of each and a lightning rod so I could get two Sidekicks in with it as well.

Our Gamestop finally got them The manager even called to tell me they got them, which we never asked them to do I thought that was sweet. We are exclusive to Gamestop as much as possible so they know us too well haha! We did get a sidekick...a little whisper elf

Would like to say that GameStop does have the Golden Scorpion Stalker Battle Pack in stock now (assuming it hasn't sold out at your local store).
We've also started to receive Thumpback and Eye-Brawl figures in our shipments. So try and snag yourself one of those free Sidekick figures before those are all out too.
I still haven't seen a Lightcore Shroomboom though.

GameStops in the NC Triad area have tons of Scorpion Stalker Battle Packs. Found one Thumpback but no EyeBrawl. I also was able to get a Trigger Snappy.
