Good deal. This didn't work on the Target exclusive "Nitro" cars.

This would be great if they actually stocked Skylanders. Both stores near me have had the same few hanging on the pegs since around Christmas. They haven't gotten any new stock, yet they keep having these cartwheel deals. Luckily, this game didn't need that much to 100% it, so we only picked up a few. Though there are some others my son would probably like to have if they were cheap enough. This might have made them the price point I'd be willing to pick up any extras, but I can't buy any if they don't have them.

This makes the figures a reasonable $3 and change each, but the fact that stores are dropping out of stocking figures is a sign of the times for the Toys to Life franchises. I've had the same issue of Target having the same few Skylanders figures in stock. The general public has moved onto other stuff in gaming and it doesn't warrant having all the big name stores like Best Buy, Toys R Us, GameStop, Walmart, and Target stocking figures yearly from here on out. If Skylanders can't move figures in the $3-4 price change for the current game, they must be nuts for thinking people will pay the retail price tag of $10-15 for stuff upon release of the next game. I think Activision has soured even the most loyal of their customers by not releasing the yawn traps from Trap Team in the US and releasing Thrillipede from Superchargers in a very limited way online at Toys R Us with very scarce sightings of him trickling into a handful of Toys R Us stores in select areas before disappearing completely from the US marketplace. New Amiibo releases aren't selling either. Disney has dropped their infinity line. Lego Dimensions sets are hitting clearance sales. The whole Toys to Life fad will most likely be dead by this time next year as all the manufacturers will realize the time has passed for profitability.

I don't doubt that the toys-to-life fad will eventually die out, but I doubt it will be as quickly as you think. As for Skylanders, their ability to stock after last year's port strike debacle (which wasn't their fault, but it seems to be when it started, for some reason) has really hurt them. I really think that the port strike somehow clogged up inventory, which never made it to the stores to sell, so stores didn't order any more. When the new one came along, most stores just seemed disinterested in stocking them. They decided to push Disney Infinity, instead. As for DI, it was actually doing really well. The only reason it was canceled was because Disney Interactive, as a whole, wasn't doing well, and Infinity wasn't enough of a reason to keep it going. Disney decided to drop the Interactive division altogether, despite Infinity making them lots of money. I can't speak for Amiibos, though, but I really never saw much use for them. As for Lego Dimensions, I have never seen them on clearance. There were some good sales, for a little while, but that's typical of anything after a given time. Stores like Five Below are starting to get a few of the older packs, but that's about it. But all-in-all, they really haven't been on sale much (and definitely not on clearance). Usually, by this point in the cycle, there have been a lot more (and better) sales on Skylanders and DI, especially as the new cycle approaches. Lego Dimensions as actually grown in popularity, and being that they don't have to buy a new starter pack, this year (or next), is going to get people to buy more toys. They have a lot of fun properties coming up that have gotten people excited. As for Skylanders, Imaginators may be their make or break game. My son wasn't that interested in Superchargers (despite being a huge Skylanders fan). Some of that was because of Lego Dimensions coming out, but he still didn't seem to care as much. But he's super excited about Imaginators. Being able to make your own Skylanders and being able to buy the villains as figures really excites him (as I'm sure it does a lot of kids). The game, itself, needs to be really good, and they need to convince stores to stock better. But with their inability to set release dates and such, I wouldn't doubt that has soured things a bit. But now that stores can't push Infinity, they have more room to stock the other games. So hopefully, that problem gets solved. If things don't go well with Imaginators, it may be the end for them. Although, they also have a new cartoon that may bring interest back. Lego Dimensions, though, will still be around next year, as they had a 3-year plan. At that point, they'll probably have to decide whether or not making a new game will be worth it. But with DI out, if they can get Disney properties for the second game, it would be a shoe-in for making money.
