This last part in red would confuse 99% of people. As a fellow night owl, it is all too clear :lol:

Other items of interest include the following details:

1: Stock and Availability
-Some have reported to me they have picked up BOTH from their TRU with a retail price of $31.99 :o
-Others have emailed and told me they found them at TRU, but they were register locked for Sunday (12/21/2014)
-The overwhelming consensus of the limited feedback is that there are far more LIGHT EPs than DARK EPs
-They ship 6 to a box, with a likely 3/3 split coming at some point, but an apparent righteous overload of LIGHTS at TRU

2: Bonus Contents
-They also include stickers for the poster and trap tray etc.

3: About that Price
-The sticker shock is up there, but makes me wonder if TRU has attached a "greater than usual" markup to the items (ie will it be -$1 at other retailers, or $-2, or $24.99, or what?).
-We are basically getting a unique figure ($14.99/$15.99 TRU), Trap ($5.99/$6.99 TRU), and a Location Piece/Magic Item, which doing the math would be roughly $9.01

4: Sunday, December 21st, 2014 Release Date
-Assuming this is true, does anyone else see the significance here?
--12-21 is the Winter Solstice. It not only marks the 1st Day of Winter, but also the shortest day of the year. And thus, marks the transition towards the Summer Solstice as each day gets a bit longer.
---And yeah, I realize that this is probably just a coincidence with the date/day, BUT if I don't over analyze things, who will? :geek:

Ive been awaiting a centaur for ages! But that price *shivers* with the usual $5 shipping increase and ...nearly $40 for 1 character, trap and level, which should cost $16 + $6.50 + approx. $9.50 =$32. Hmm. That seems somewhat unfair especially considering there should be only 1 $5 add on. However im accounting for sales. Without, the rrp should be...nearly $40. But still, I would expect a saving considering the shipping of 1 pack vs 3 individual packs should be cheaper. And these packs should offer an enticing deal through bundlimg rather than exact costs, when compared to triple packs or adventure packs. Hopefully I can get a sale for this one.

MSRP is $29.99 just fyi...Looks like TRU went big on this one, lol. That said, IF they have both Light and Dark you can cash in on the BOGO40%.

Ive avoided a big pain here, theyve been officially released for pre order on eb games website for $35 each. With january sales I should be able to get them cheaper, and the pre orders save the worry of locating them. Oh I forgot the best thing, they release on 26th december, so it will be a late Christmas present to myself! :lol:

Lol! You right!! NightOwl reference! (BTW: NightOwl -an awesome name for a Dark Skylander)
I always say to people,"Your 'Today 'is still my 'Yesterday'!"

I am pleased with that Bonus Content you listed above. That goes a long way on the satisfaction meter. I have been working on our own Trap Box and made labels from the tray that came with our a Dark Edition. The new stickers will keep the look consistent. Now I'm just a bit annoyed at the Strategy Guide being incomplete! I believe that is why they offer the electronic version online for free in the back of the guide: hopefully they will update the contents as they release figures, levels and traps!!

The price point of $30 ,or $32 at TRU, is pretty steep!!
I read in your press release post that the a Dark Edition packs are not officially releasing on the 21st. Now I'm hoping there will be a few at least on hand on the 21st. My ongoing guideline, as you are likely to already know, is "Don't Pay Full Price For Anything in Trap Team". I'm also partial to "Discount or Die!! Either way BOGO40% or something equivalent is pretty much a preset condition for me or we have to just plain o'le wait for it!

Now if there is a deal I think I will, as you put it, Pull the Trigger, on both Expansion Packs. If they only have the Light Pack, I think I can purchase it with ....believe it or not....the Arkeyan Crossbow Battle Pack to maximize the discount!

Crunching the numbers...both Expansion Packs together puts the cost per unit at @$25.60.
Strangely enough...if you buy 1 Expansion Pack and 1 Standard Adventure or Battle Pack for the TRU $26...then the cost per item with the BOGO40% is @$23.80!

Knight Owl is a good name, lol.

When you view it as only $5 more than a typical AP it isn't too bad, lol.

The cool thing really is the Light AND Dark stickers in each one.

I'me hearing reports they will have Darks on hand...as well as Wave 3 figures!

I has both the Light and the Dark in hand at my local TRU. They looked Very nice!!
But...alas...No Discounts...No Dice. I can wait.
A separate TRU in our area had most all of Wave 3 available in excellent quantities!
