While we had GameStop boasting the Dark Edition Starter Pack, we recently saw Walmart land Enchanted Hoot Loop. We already know Toys'R'Us is getting the Legendaries once more, so that left Target...
The cycle did not disappoint as BOTH SWAP Force Double Packs featuring Nitro Magna Charge will appear at the retailer! It remains to be seen if these will be as limited as Granite Crusher, a bit more lenient like Jade Flashwing, or easy picking like most Walmart specials...My advice, as usual, is get it while you can and avoid being caught an issue where you can't obtain it for retail.
The Nitro Magna Charge Double Pack Retails for $29.99 and comes in two flavors:
Nitro Magna Charge and Rattle Shake
Nitro Magna Charge and Free Ranger
Note the placement of the "Only at Target" designation...This follows suit with what we have seen recently where labels have been printed with the packaging.
The cool thing here is that Nitro Magna Charge remains the same...So, you can simply pick which character you want.
This was obviously set up for those that buy a console starter pack. Why? The console starter packs include Wash Buckler and Magna Charge...That means you can literally add this Double Pack and be in business.
However, if you plan to pick up the 3DS Version, you will likely be disappointed as it features none other than Free Ranger and Rattle Shake.
But, remaining optimistic, those of us getting the console and 3DS versions, can take solstice in this...
Free Ranger has a Legendary form coming at some point, and with Rattle Shake's potential alter ego, or variant form unknown (or simply not happening), we can use this Double Pack to land a 2nd Rattle Shake, as opposed to winding up with 3 Free Rangers...That is my plan anyway.
The price of $29.99 doesn't do a lot given SWAP Force Skylanders will retail for $14.99, but it is hard to complain with a special figure included.
I am left wondering if Amazon will have anything "special" here right off the bat...I guess we will have to wait and see.
