The only place that I could find Hot Head was at EB games online. It was sold out at all of our local shops on the day it was released, so I recommend buying if you see it in case you have trouble getting it later.
Also, not all of the series 1 characters were remade into series 2 so some are/going to be really hard to get. Dino-Rang, Camo, Warnado, Boomer, Voodood, Wham-Shell are not being remade into series 2 and are already very hard to find. It is almost impossible to find Boomer Character anywhere, so if you see him you can make a good profit on Ebay. Boomer is the only one that is missing from our collection and I am kicking myself that I didn't buy him when I had the chance. I was waiting for him to be released on series 2.
Legendary Stealth Elf is out at Toys R Us at the moment.

I don't have Wham Shell. I didn't have Hex either, but got her in Giants anyway.
Boomer I got in a 3 pack from ozgameshop. I already had one of the characters in the pack but figured that Boomer was so hard to get that it is kind of worth it, and I can pass the extra character on to a friend anyway. Boomer looks fun!

I got Hot Head this morning from Target for $16
I also got the wii U skylanders pack. It scanned for $89 but if I added one on the single figures, it went down to $79 and the figure was included in this price as well. Happy on both accounts here!!!!

Target have a 3pk light core exclusive to them this week and Big W have Granite Crusher exclusive. Both in their catalogues this week starting Thursday.

I got one of the new Big W catalogues to day and it has "granite crusher" giant limited edition on the cover. Is that different again to the Crusher that was already out??
It is so annoying when they release the same characters with slight differences. Like light core and non etc...

I don't think Granite Crusher does anything except light up a different colour on the portal.

I got the glow in the dark Fright Rider today from Kmart for $12. I am new to the whole Skylanders thing but thought he looked pretty cool so bought him. There was also loads of Hot Heads in Target for $16 so if anyone is looking for him, check your local store.

My local Big W had lots of Hot Head in stock again too.

Thanks for the tip frozie!
I got a glow in the dark Fright Rider yesterday at Kmart for $12 too.
They were at JB for $14.95 IF you bought the starter pack. Kmart Stanhope Gardens had boxes of them behind the counter, and I just happened to spy one sitting on top. They were not out on the shelf yet.
I wonder when the next lot of figures is coming out?

Kmart had Hot Head today - heaps of them. they also had heaps of the glow in the dark fright rider. My son was impressed but of course, I didn't buy that version.
