I posted a special a few days ago
Chocolate addict has a better deal but is not sharing.

Try www.ozgameshop.com for the games. Much cheaper! And I think the best prices I've seen for the figures are at Kmart.

Thaanks coffeegirl, our onlu local TRU was sold out on lunch time Friday, and with $11 post on line it ended up more than Ozgame shop, wouldhave bought 2 to make it worthwhitle but I doubt it would have arrived in time for a birthday this weekend

ppfft to the not sharing! I have posted the link every time I post in a skylander thread.
As PPer said - ozgameshop is the way to go. Though some of their figures can be a bit expensive, the actual starter packs are much cheaper than most places and they do free post.

Toys R Us have giants charactes at $16.80 which is the cheapest I have seen them. Does anyone know when Wave 2 is coming out? DS is driving me mad! TRU also have get a $10 voucher if you spend $75 or more until Sunday.

For those that are getting the Wii U:
Big W have the Skylanders Giants Starter Pack for the Wii U for $48 instead of $88. Big saving!
I saw it online yesterday, but they didn't have anyone online stock it was only instore. Had to ring around and find one, and then dragged the 3 kids out in 40C heat to secure one - plus it is for them so I had to conceal it!
And wouldn't you know it......this morning they have stock for online orders...with free delivery!
Posted 01 December 2012 - 07:33 PM
Ok thats a great price. Can anyone tell me if Wii U skylanders giants is compatible with normal Wii??
Posted 01 December 2012 - 07:55 PM
I am pretty sure that Wii U games cannot be played on a Wii.

Target have Skylanders in their catalogue at the moment. IIRC the single characters are $12 and the giants are $16....plus they are also having a promo spend over 50 and get 10 off. For anyone looking in Sydney, Carlingford as a lot of both series 1 and 2.

I know I got my hopes up but I went there and they don't have them
I don't put much faith in their system, so many times it says a store has it but when you go there they say they don't
