GameStop Offering Long Awaited Exclusives On Skylanders Day!


Hey Addicts!

I covered this info a while back in a post but it now has officially been confirmed that King Cobra Cadabra and Steampunk Shrednaught will be exclusive to GameStop stores.

 

skylanderaddictsI got an email like I’m sure most of you have stating there would be another Skylanders Day June 27, 2015 at GameStop. We all know how I feel about Skylanders Day at GS, but things look promising this go around. Here is a look at the deals going on all week.

skylanderaddicts As you can see there will be various sales going on throughout the week starting tomorrow June 24th, but there will be a set of sales that will only be valid on Skylanders Day the 27th. Here is what you can expect to see on sale during the day of the event.

The deals that stand out the most to me are the Buy 1 Get 1 Free Deal the day of the event I’ll be taking advantage of that deal to get King Cobra Cadabra. I will also be preordering the game and getting my Shreadnaught trap as well as I am a member of the Skyalnders Adventure Club have been since the beginning. If you haven’t joined the club you should it’s free and you get free figures! Of course there are stipulations, but it pans out.

If you still need a starter pack I would get one now as this is an awesome deal with a nice amount of Skylanders extras. The best deal out of all the sales would have to be the Eon Elites being Buy 1 Get 1 Free. I’ll be taking advantage of this sale as well to get the last two Elites I need (Eruptor & Gill Grunt).

Will you be attending Skylanders Day? What will you be getting? Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Hey Addicts!

This shouldn’t be new news, but for those of you that don’t know tomorrow January 10, 2015 is Skylanders Day at GameStop stores in the US. Are you still looking for the Light and Dark Packs? Well you can save $10 if you buy both packs at the event tomorrow. You can also save $5 on the Eon’s Elite Figures, so if you’re still in need of adding Terrafin and Stealth Elf to your Elite collection now would be a good time to get them and any of the other Elite figures you may be missing. There are some other great sales going on as well like save $30 on Starter Packs and Skylanders Trap Team Traps for 99 cents with the purchase of a Trap Master. The first 20 customers will receive a new Skylanders Mini Comic Pack with a 2 sided poster included. The GameStop exclusive Lob Goblin Rocket Light Trap will also be available, but stock is limited so make sure to get there early to get what you need.

Now I know that GameStop has had a sale going on all week on Skylanders merchandise, but tomorrows sale is for one day only. Unfortunately, all the advertised sales are “in-store” only. (sorry online shoppers) The images you see are from the email you should have received for the event if you are apart of the GameStop Skylanders Club. I have waited to get my Light Traps and Elite figures just so I could take advantage of this sale. I’ll be there bright and early so I can get in and get out, then have some breakfast with the family. Happy Hunting and Good Luck! Until next time catch you on the “SKYSIDE!”

Skylanders Day Mess!


So today was the official Skylanders Day at Game Stop today. There where some good deals today but I was really disappointed. I went out to my favorite store and I was expecting to see some wave 3 swappers and some others like Arkeyan Crossbow and Sheep Wreck Island. I was so not expecting to see what I saw and that was nothing! Not because they sold out, but because none even came to the store I was floored! To top it off for the 3rd time they say it will be a special collector’s poster but it seems more like a flyer rather than a poster.

I think there should be a little bit more given to us Adventure Club members personally. I mean it is Skylanders Day for crying out loud couldn’t we at least get some better posters like the glow in the dark Infinity Jack poster? Some of you may say I’m being a little whiny, but don’t you think we deserve more after all the money we pump into keeping up collections and keeping our kids happy.

I was able to talk to a few friends and they expressed their irritation from going to the event some didn’t even get the mini’s at there store! (Say WHAT!) I will say that even though there were none of the figures in store they let you order them to be shipped to your house for free which was pretty cool I thought. I was able to grab the collector’s guide and a swap force carrying case at a good price and got a free Sidekick Mini Barkley as well. (Picture Below) Let’s hope that futures Game Stop Skylander Events don’t leave us feeling empty handed, irritated, and under appreciated.
