Skylanders Swap Force Launch Day Tips

Boom Zone

Skylanders Swap Force hits store shelves in just a few days, so here are some tips on obtaining the Skylanders Figures you want on day one.

While Skylanders Swap Force releases Sunday, October 13th, its important to note that some stores will start their release at Midnight the 12th.  Different retailers will open at different times Sunday morning, so its best to plan your trip to hit each store as early as possible.

Wal-Mart will start its Skylanders Swap Force distribution Saturday at midnight, so it’s best to start there. Wal-Mart has an exclusive Hoot Loop variant named Enchanted Hoot Loop, an interesting variant that changes color in light! If you want to pre-order this figure or learn more, check out my last article here. Wal-Mart also has an exclusive Magic Triple Pack which contains Mega Ram Spyro, Super Gulp Pop Fizz, and Star Strike. Lastly, Wal-Mart has several major bundle packs, which is a big money and time saver, if you are looking to collect all the characters.


Okay that’s a start, now it’s time for Sunday morning, where things will really get crazy. I’m going to discuss several retailers and their variants available at launch.

Target has two options for a double pack, both options contain Nitro Magna Charge, and either Rattle Shake or Free Ranger. Be sure to contact your local Target and see exactly when they open, so you don’t miss out on this crazy cool variant of Magna Charge.

Lastly, there is a Dark Edition Starter Pack available for pre order at your local GameStop, EB Games, or Game, so be sure to bag that Sunday as well!


There is going to undoubtedly be several unannounced variants bouncing around store shelves on Launch Day, so always keep your eyes peeled when your looking for Skylanders! Good luck snagging all of the available variants on launch day, share this guide with a friend, and for everything Skylanders Swap Force, keep it here at ToyChaser!

Disney Infinity: The Verdict


Disney Infinity ignites the imagination of gamers of all ages, brings a vibrant glisten of nostalgia for the adult audience, and is a jam packed experienced built on the concept of limitless fantasy, unbounded creation, and true unity across the franchises of Disney. Get The Verdict below.

Presentation: The game looks gorgeous and the animated graphic style works great for Disney Infinity. There are minimal cutscenes but as much is expected for such a broad horizon title. The toy like mechanics to all of the characters add a well defined aspect of adorability to the characters, and wraps up the presentation smoothly altogether.

Gameplay: The Gameplay in Infinity was much different than I anticipated, but left me coming back hour after hour, until I cleaned up every challenge and mission in the starter pack. Between collectibles, currency accumulation, graded challenges, and a exciting yet minimalist story, Disney Infinity racks up hours of play value, but leaves little replay value outside of the toy box.

Story: While each playset has it’s own gimmicky storyline full of corny lines and goofy adventures, the real story behind Disney Infinity is that you make your own story, with limitless materials from around the Disney Universe.

The Verdict: 8 Pizza Planet Trucks out of 10

Announcement: Skylanders SwapForce hits shelves in just over a week, so be sure to keep it locked at Toy Chaser for the best collector’s coverage, reviews, multiplayer madness, and contests!
