12-23 that seem dumb don't they know the end of the world is 12-21. That's just bad marketing.

I thought the characters (minus lightcores and giants) all have the same UPC. Why couldn't you get them sooner?

Also I heard from another user that Ninjini, Eyebrawl, S2 Drobot, Prism Break, and Stealth Elf are also in this wave. So if you add Lightning Rod (and maybe Zap and Hotdog) to this wave, then we might have a decent amount left for wave 4. Hopefully they just all come out already.

According to what I've seen, Wave 3 has the following new characters:

Singles:
S2 Lightning Rod
S2 Eruptor
S2 Cynder
S2 Stealth Elf
S2 Prism Break

Lightcore:
LC Shroomboom

Giants
Eye Brawl
Thumpback
Ninjini

Other
Hot Dog (Scorpion Striker Battle Pack)
S2 Zap (Scorpion Striker Battle Pack)
Scorpion Striker (Scorpion Striker Battle Pack)

Apparently a TRU employee leaked some information on Darkspyro. Either Way, character packs for these guys have started showing up on GameStop and other foreign retailers for preorder... except for the Giants. It seems like we would get another Lightcore as well... but I haven't seen any confirmation of which one (and I've been looking). Probably something dumb like LC Chill. No word on the next four sidekicks or the other official variants that are still coming (Molten Hot Dog, Jade Flashwing, Scarlet Ninjini, Legendary Chill). It looks like those will be in Wave 4, along with the remaining S2 characters and Lightcores.

UPDATE: Box pictures are up in some threads on Dark Spryo for all the S2 and Lightcore listed above. According to more employee information, all three giants WILL be out by Christmas. Good luck people...

Because Dark Spryo is being re-released, does that mean the rest of the Skylanders will be too? Some of the older Figures are expensive, like Boomer and Wham Shell.

What are you talking about? Dark Spyro got a limited single release outside of the US, but I haven't heard anything about Dark Spyro being re-released. As for the other 8, they've been releasing a lot more of of the Camo/Warnado/Ignitor triple packs and LOTS of Wham Shells. I'm sure the others will see some additional distribution at some point in the new year.

I have Camo, so that's fine and Warndo is quite cheep, but Wham Shell goes for 27. I wish they'd make more of the Voodood, Boomer and Prism Break pack, as it's going for almost 40 here. I don't have any of those figures.
