Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure: Sonic Boom
Thus far in my explorations Sonic Boom is only available as a single character (ie no Triple Pack to save cash). He is one of the few "Air" characters out yet, and the only one currently out that isn't exclusive (Whirlwind at Target). That said, I thought he looked like an awesome character and picked him up. You can get a good look here, remember single packs run about $7.99:
Now that you've seen what Sonic Boom looks like, let's take a look at the stats:
Sonic Boom (Air)
Thats good, but I have been finding out that some store employees are setting air characters and new ones aside and then buying them and turning around and selling them on ebay, thus removing our ability to buy them for normal retail. So air characters and even new releases are next to impossible unless you know a stores delivery schedule.Reply Delete
You know, I would not be surpised by that one bit...I've seen it happen with everything from die-cast to "hot" holiday gifts.Reply Delete
The sad thing is there is really no way to stop that with the lax policy most retail outlets have and adding insult to injury to us is the fact the employees are even snagging a discount.
I was literally checking stock every delivery time for Silvers and never found one...I did get one thanks to a friend, but still...the time and research I put in should have netted greater dividends. Hopefully you can catch a stock point or find a new store. Good luck!
