Skylanders Giants: Unboxing Granite Crusher (Target Exclusive)
What Is It? Granite Crusher (Target Exclusive)
Where Did You Get It? Target-Exclusive to Target in the US
How Did You Get It? In store. Currently no online ordering options outside of ebay sellers.
What Did It Cost? $14.99 plus tax
Does It Cost Extra? No, despite being an exclusive and more rare, this costs the same as a regular Crusher from any other retailer.
What Is Included? Granite Crusher, Stat Card, Sticker, and Web Code.
What Was the Stock Like? I got the last one. It looked like there were several pegs for Granite Crusher though. That said, it seemed to be the hot seller on Day 1. My reports across the net either indicate that stores didn't have him, had a ton of them (ie I would have walked in and seen 20 still out), or had a small number, but not a lot of buyers.
For what it is worth, I had an appointment and ran by Target on Day 2 and there were no Granite Crushers and everything was very picked over.
Will This Be Rare? I wouldn't put this on line with a Gold or Silver from last time around, or even the new variants. That said, the Target exclusive Whirlwind ran out around Christmas and then she was everywhere. I don't really see Granite Crusher going to all retailers just as I don't see the Golden Dragonfire Cannon or GITD Starer Pack migrating. That said, will this stay in production, be cut of after a set date, or simply produced to a certain quantity is beyond me.
Out of all the Giants, I liked Crusher the most aesthetically (Eye Brawl is right up there). The Granite Crusher look is very cool and it was on my short list of things to try and pick-up.
Right now, I don't think you'll have too much trouble trying to get a Granite Crusher. If your store didn't have them, they likely will be getting them in soon. If not, try another Target. If you want it, I would advise picking him up BEFORE Black Friday just to be safe. For those not wanting everything, adding Granite Crusher over Crusher is a nice fit, gives you something a little extra, and is all done for the same price.
