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.

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.

Well done getting the Hothead! I can't find him anywhere! EBgames told me they just got enough in for preorders.
Was in Kmart today and they had the lightcores for $15 - so got a Jetvac light core.

I just checked the BigW website. Not sure how far you are actually from Maitland, but the Raymond Terrace store is showing as instock for the bladecycle. Singleton has the Storm Fighter.
Posted 10 December 2012 - 09:26 PM
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
