SWAP Force Water Element Skylanders

Well, as fate would have it I was able to locate all 3 of the Spring Edition Skylanders at my local GameStop!  I haven't heard of anyone else nabbing them from GameStop just yet, so I suppose that is a worthwhile notation.  If I had to guess I would say there were 6-10 of each figure on the pegs...The pegs were full, so there could have been more in the back.  I believe the employee said they had just put them out either yesterday or today, so they probably hit the distribution center late last week and shipped out Monday.

I don't think it'll be too terribly hard to land these Spring Editions, but the hot commodity will likely be Punk Shock.  I say that because she is the last of the Newlanders if you will (not counting swapper Doom Stone) and she currently lacks a standard packed counterpart (still kind of weird she doesn't mirror what we see with Fryno, or Fryno mirror her).

Outside of the "eggcellent" packaging, there is no difference between what you'll find inside.  Given how well stocked Pumpkin Eye Brawl and Jolly Bumble Blast were I would think we should see similar attempts with these Spring Edition Skylanders.

If you can get a TRU that has them out, or will sell them, their 3 for $20 is a great way to land Spring Edition Fryno, Spring Edition Punk Shock, and Springtime Trigger Happy for a great price.

There were no signs of any Spring Edition Skylanders at my local Wal-Marts or Target.

Good luck and "hoppy" hunting!
