Ninjini

Just found this forum. Great information from everyone. Thank you for sharing.

Thought I would let everyone know that I was able to pick up Ninjini at Best Buy a few days ago. I think I got lucky and showed up just after they stocked the shelves cause there were over 10 and from the way it sounds she's not easy to find. So if you're near a Best Buy you might want to stop in and see if you can get lucky too. Good luck.

Well I work at a GameStop and I can say that we received a grand total of 4 Ninjini, 1 Series 2 Spyro, and 1 Series 2 Wrecking Ball since they were released. Also saw an individual Hot Dog and Shroomboom too. Still haven't seen us get any more light core ones since the first shipment when the game first came out, which is rather sad. I lucked out and found my Light Core Shroomboom at Walmart (where they surprising had a ton of them) and my Light Core Jet-Vac at a Target. I'm in Michigan by the way.
All I need now are Series 2 Drobot, and then Light Cores Hex, Chill, and Popfizz. Plus a Molten Hot Dog, Polar Whirlwind, Scarlet Ninjini variants, whenever they decide to release those that is.

Molten hot dog hit. It was a walmart exclusive. I never saw one at my walmarts but I saw advertisments for them and some people here got one.

They are, especially when she's advertised on the back of every game box.

Can't find Ninjini anywhere! Hopefully I can get one before Easter. I'm also looking for Bash and Slam Bam if anybody has any tips or even better online links to order them. I'm not paying 25$ + shipping for current figures.

Local Gamestop just got a decent shipment of wave 1 stuff in this week. Several of each of Slam Bam, Chill, Zook and Ignitor.

I've seen numerous Ninjini's at WalMart this week and picked up an extra tonight. I'm even willing to trade it straight up for a Series 2 Giants Bash.

Any news of the Wave 5 release date? I'm pining badly for a Lightcore Pop Fizz and Series 2 Drobot

Hot Dog too (which I see out every once in a while), but mainly Pop Fizz and Drobot.

Awesome thread guys, nice having a central location to get info on new releases.
Here is a shelf I built for my kids as the skylanders case was getting way too full. What does everyone else use to organize them?

Apparently McDonalds is about to start having skylanders toys in happy meals. I don't think they will work in the game but who knows? ]

Saw the shelf you made and thought that was awesome. Where can I get one like that. Would be awesome to house all skylanders in from both the first game, Giants, and the new swap-force. Awesome worksmanship.

Thanks! I appreciate that. My intention was for it to house the characters from all 3 games but add you can see the element specific shelves are getting kinda full already lol. Naturally just a 4x4 piece of ply wood, some 1x4s and some wood glue and finishing nails. Took about3 to plan and build. Kids love it

I actually have all my skylanders around my tv all stylized. I have them separated to characters I have maxed out and characters that I still have to level.

I figure what is the point of spending all this money if I can't display them.

Red face No luck here with Ninjini yet ...

I've had no luck here in Southwestern Ontario, Canada with Ninjini yet. Lots of Thumpbacks, Eyebrawls, & Hot Heads floating around though.

I guess I'll have to wait another 2-3 weeks or more to get her. Not a big problem as I don't really need her until August as a birthday gift for my son. Perserverance and patience will eventually pay off one day.

Anybody here still running into Darklight Crypt? I really want one but not for $50!

Found it new for 35$ on Craigslist! Not bad compared to eBay and amazon.

The Sidekicks are back at Gamestop.

51 - 5/31

Its still the series 1 wave of sidekicks: Terrbyte, Wisper Elf, Trigger Snappy, and Gill Runt.

Its only a $20 buy in this time. Ima check out my local gamestop later to see if they got in Spyro or Wrecking Ball.

I'm so mad!!!

Went into Target this morning and found a Scarlet Ninjini on the shelf. I go to pay for it and they said they couldn't sell it to me because the sell date is not up yet. I argued with them about it being on the shelf and they should sell it to me. But no, So I filed an email complaint to there corporate office. See if that does any good.

That sucks!

Good job on arguing. They should have sold it to you, though granted if they did they can get in big trouble with activision if activision decided to care about street dates.

The problem is that the system will simply refuse to ring it up, even with a manager override.

Also, while the company wouldn't get in trouble with Activision over a single figure, the store would get massive flak from corporate, and would be bumped down a few spots on the stock priority list. That would mean that corporate would no longer consider that store trustworthy with dated or exclusive products and thus for future exclusives, give the store less stock and having it shipped much closer to the release date with a large probability of the store receiving the product late.

This is what they told me:

We've taken these comments very seriously, so thanks for taking the time to let us know about your experience at the Lakeland Target Store.

I am sorry that this happen to you.

The Manufacture determines the release date of the merchandise and Target must abide by the determined date.
We are not allowed to sell the merchandise before that date.
I will pass on this information to the Store leadership to review with the Team Members at that Lakeland Store.

Thanks for writing. Your feedback helps us improve our service commitment to you.

We look forward to showing you what's new at Target.

Skylanders Giants ( Scarlet Ninjini )

Hey I just got word that Scarlet Ninjini will be released in Target on the 19th. That's this coming up Sunday. I went back to the store to gripe about them not selling me the figure and the girl went ahead and told me what date the computer had said they can sell it. So I'm guessing they will be on the shelf on Sunday.

Thumbs up Scarlett Ninjini coming to Canada ... maybe

I know Ninjini & Scarlett Ninjini is already available in the U.S however ...

I spoke tonight to a EBgames cashier in Canada & he/she told me that Scarlett Ninjini is coming to stores in Canada this weekend. He/she also told me that they are not supposed to tell customers that. There was so much demand for regular Ninjini that Activision had to do something. Well we shall see what happens at stores real soon. I just hope he/she is right because I'm getting a little tired of waiting for the last giant. Neway good luck to all those who don't have her yet.

Thanks Pawnzeer. I went to my local Gamestop and they had 3 Scarlet Ninjini's on the shelf. I scooped one up, along with a series 2 whirlwind and snagged me a Whisper Elf to complete my sidekicks. Good times.

Just picked up scarlet ninjini at gamestop....I called the store before I went up there and asked if there were any available. The employee seemed a lil put out about the question. I guess the employees maybe upset because all the gamestops maybe closing stores because of the changing market with the new consoles hitting this year.

I believe the bulk of their sales are based upon used games.......any way who knows.
