Conclusion

Slam Bam is one of my favorite Skylanders and my Nephew's favorite by a long shot.  He is very cool, literally.  Slam Bam is fairly unique in his ability to inflict massive damage up close, but also being quick enough to escape and easily counter attack, or take an advantage with his Ice Prisons.

I know of a few people that still don't have Empire of Ice...either they're parents won't purchase it, or they can simply never find it when they have the money.  I think EoI is worth getting since you add a new level to both SSA and SG, but if you just want to play as Slam Bam, this S2 offering is the way to go as you can use him in both SSA and SG.

I have seen a few stores that didn't have him on the shelf, but I honestly think they would have had more in the back, or someone just stashed him...It has never been a "long" shortage...likely just a case of an employee not getting stock out.

Slam Bam is a great character and his unique powers and abilities definitely make him worth picking up!  I like him so much I ordered him on release day just in case he was tough to come by...He and Terrafin are the only S1 reposed Skylanders that I will spring for without knowing the contents of a Triple Pack.
