I'd never actually heard of these before, so I'll have to go with 'no idea'. I am however, baffled at the amount of toy scarcity that goes on, even though it's a common practice that has been going on for years.

Yep, they are selling like crazy in the Phoenix metro area.

I'm a little embarrassed to say that I don't even know what one is. I thought I was pretty hip to the latest fads but haven't even heard about them.

I haven't been inside a store that would sell them since the holidays, but they were all over the place at the time.

Skylanders is a video game that comes with character toys. You place the toy of the character you want to play as onto the magic portal thing and ta-da, that character is running around the screen. It's based off of the game series "Spyro's Adventure" (I think it was adventure... don't remember) Which was a game that first came out on the Playstation in the mid-to-late 90s. Purple Dragon guy.

From what I hear it's quite popular nowadays.

Never heard of them. If I were a bit younger, I think I'd be all over them. Neat concept of taking a physical item and tethering it to a virtual world.

Ingenious way to get people to continue paying money to play a game other than a monthly subscription.

Honestly, I've passed by the display about three times in the past week, and never looked to see if there was any actual stock. I was just in Target today, and even glance at it and thought about trying out one of the thingies on the doodad, but I guess I didn't see in my peripheral vision, so I kept on moving. They could have been sold out.

Hard to find here in Indiana! Searched Targets all around Indianapolis/Terre Haute for Whirlwind in January and they were all sold out of every single Skylander!! Apparently people are coming in on shipment days and buying all of them to sell on ebay or other places for profit :( Slowly building our collection...
