Don't count on it. All we've gotten since day one is the Facebook updates telling us stupid crap like "Did you know Eruptor is a Fire type?"

The promotion is going to run from June 18-July 13.
I would assume it's pretty much anywhere that sells Frito Lay Chips.

It's most likely a send-in program (collect so many UPCs plus shipping & handling).
Cause you can imagine the sheer Kaos (pun intended) that a figure inside a bag would cause.
There would be people just ripping open the bags and taking the figures.
This happens often with certain magazines when they gave away CCG cards.

Apparently there is also a rumor that on June 27th the new figures for Giants might start hitting the stores. Or perhaps one last wave of regular Skylanders?

So two days away and still no info. How do we even know the 18 is the release? I have a bad feeling this is going to be a big cluster.... And an even bigger fiasco than the wham shell incident.

I just got most the info from the Internet.

One site is this: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Activision-Prepares-Skylanders-Sidekick-and-Frito-Lay-Promotion-266352.shtml

The other is this: http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/rumor/29949

Back a couple of months ago they had a display of Frito Lay chips right near the electronics section of the local Walmart promoting the online Skylanders game (had free codes to do stuff on that).

So I would guess they would do something similar to that with the Sidekick promotion.

I went to the store earlier, but did not look at the chip area.
Who knows maybe the packages are out already?

Google "skylanders sidekicks chip bags found" w/o the quotes. On the 1st page of results the last result should be a powerpoint file. Open it and look at slides 5-7.

The dates given are in four two week waves beginning July 9th with the last wave starting August 20th.

Continue to keep an eye on the boards just in case someone does find the bags before these dates. To my knowledge no one has found any yet.
