  1. So far I have 97 of my collection entered and I have encountered 1 bug. Legendary Lightcore Grim Creeper's Code comes up with the error message Toy not supported - The toy you are trying to unlock is not supported by the application. Also The Rank seems to cap out at 10 (Elite). Other that the issue with Legendary Lightcore Grim Creeper Im loving the app.

      11 Toys Failed to accept the toy with the error

      "Toy not supported

      the toy you are trying to unlock is not supported by the application."

      This list of bugged toys is
      Legendary Lightcore Grim Creeper
      Knockout Terrafin
      Lava Barf Erupted
      Blizzard Chill
      Anchors Away Gill Grunt
      Mega Ram Spyro
      Super Gulp Pop Fizz
      Heavy Duty Sprocket
      Big Bang Trigger Happy
      Twin Blade Chop Chop
      Ninja Stealth Elf

      They are all Blue Base Characters. Any idea how to file a bug report with Activision. Their support site doesn't even know this app exists yet.

  2. It doesn't seem to accept the Adventure Packs from Spryo's Adventure or Battle Packs from Giants either, fwiw.

  3. I entered our collection into the app, encountering the same unsupported characters as listed above. They are such basic characters I can't imagine them not correcting this in future app updates. (Personally I thing they were in the middle of production runs on these characters and don't have the full list of serial numbers yet OR the rotation modelling pics/info/etc for each of these did not make the initial release date for the app.
    As for the app itself, its pretty snazzy. And for free, I have no complaints. Future improvements I would hope for: manual rearrangement of your characters in the Vault, Manual entry/Overide for "unlisted" variants you have.
    Sidenote Prediction: I think the contest End Draw Date represents the release date for Wave 3...
