Granite Crusher at Target Update!


I previously posted about Granite Crusher being at Target. Well,  there is a slight problem. They seem to be getting them in store, but they won’t be releasing them until 3/17 with Jade FlashWing.  I have called a few stores and have been told a few different things. Some employees didn’t know what I was talking about or said they couldn’t see it in there system because the street date isn’t close enough for it to be added, but should be added this week. My local Target said possibly Mon or Weds if the rumor is correct. I did a bit more investigating and when I originally had checked the link for what stores in my area had them the list was not the same today more stores where saying in stock or limited stock so I think the rumor maybe really true. Guess, we will have to see what happens come March 17th let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Jade FlashWing Online Now @TARGET


I had been having a hard time tracking down jade FlashWing, but I finally got her today! After calling around to every store again only to be told no they are not here or out of stock. After almost giving up for the day I happened to find three stores in Ohio that had them in stock so if any one lives in the Beaver Creek, Springfield, or Trotwood Area they are there. Now if you don’t want to waste gas and don’t have to have her in your hand today, right now, at this moment, like myself, then this is right up your alley! Here is a link to the Target website where Jade FlashWing is now available online for only $10.00! plus shipping of course mine came out to be $15.49 I think…. but it was under $16 I do remember that much. So hurry while supplies last cause they are going fast!

Are you Addicted? How I became a Skylanders Superfan!


I definitely think I am a Skylanders Superfan! As I like to say, “If it’s about Skylanders it’s about me!” I only started my collection this past Christmas.

Image

I had seen the game in store when it was first released at Gamestop. I even was reading reviews about it in Game Informer and IGN, but I still wasn’t sold on getting the game. I thought that it was a game for kids and was going to be too childish or easy for me (Boy was I wrong). What sold me on the game was the figures and my 3 yr old daughter (she was 2 at the time). The first figure I saw in person was Spyro from the original Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure starter pack. I have always loved dragons especially Spyro so I thought it was cool to see him in a new game and with a figure. I loved the color and craftsmanship of the toy. I have a been into collecting action figures since I was a kid and always loved the artistry and talent needed to give the toys life.

Now here is where my daughter came into the picture. We were at Best Buy shopping I was looking at the new games that were coming out and had decided to grab Mortal Kombat the Collector’s Edition with the Sub-Zero & Scorpion books ends and Disney Universe. While I was debating on if I even wanted Disney Uni, I her my daughter squeal like a very excited little piggy, the sound she makes when she really is happy about something, cute and weird all at the same time. So of course I’m curious to know what has made her so happy. So I look up to see her play the Skylanders game with the biggest smile on her face she says to her mother, “Mommy, look I’m playing the game! I like this game!” At that point I knew I had to have it not just for me, but for her as well I wanted to see that same joy and happiness I saw again and again. Well to make a long story short, since then I have collected at least a hundred figures. I have all of the Giants Figures to date including Ninjini which I traveled from Ohio to NYC the day before the the event with my wife and kids.

We drove over night to be there standing in line in the cold waiting to get her and get her we did. I have all of the SSA figures except Lighting Rod, but I am actually waiting on him to come in the mail.

I have a lot of variants too the Flocked Stump Smash, all the mini Side-kicks from SSA, Gold Chop Chop, Crystal Cynder, Blue Bash, Green Gill Grunt, GITD Cynder, Sonic Boom, and Fright Rider, Red Drill Sergeant, Granite Crusher, Dark Spyro, Molten Hot Dog, Royal Double Trouble, Gnarly Tree Rex, and all of the Legendary figures. I got it so bad that I got all of the Mega Bloks construction sets to date, the stretchy Skylanders figures including the Legendary ones, just about every poster, hat and T-shirt you can find, Fleece Blankets, 2 out of the 3 Topps Trading card binders the UK and US versions, The Collector’s Tin, about half of the Topps Skylanders Giants Dog Tags, the blue Wii, a skin for my XBox, Skylanders joysticks for all of my systems, the Mega Puzzles (Still working on getting all of these), all the Toss ‘Em figures, 2 Castle Cases,  and the books. Only thing i need is the Fleece sacks, the stylists, the key chains and the 4 Plush toys with the portals. If they made PJ’s in my size i probably would have then too lol! I am a big kid at heart and I like to have fun.This by all means is fun, heck it a blast!

Since playing and trying to find characters I joined a few groups and decided to start my own as well as a website dedicated to the wonderful world of Skylands. Some of you may be saying, “Wow! He is really a NERD!” In my opinion I’m not a nerd I just enjoy a broad spectrum of things. Some of them just happen to be what some consider geeky or weird. I know it’s really funny coming from a rapper/singer/producer that does some of the other things I do in my spare time, but you only live once as the saying goes so I’m enjoying my vybe (Please don’t kill it).

Am I a superfan? To say the least. Am I addicted? I think that’s an understatement. Now the real question is do I plan on stopping anytime soon? My answer to that is you heard the story of Peter Pan right?
