Skylanders: Swap Force Wave 1 Releases & Triple Packs
Skylanders: Swap Force 8911 3
If you’re wondering what packs will be available during the first wave of Skylanders: Swap Force, this latest info might help shed some light. Gathering together information taken from various sources online, this list should be close to what fans can expect as the first batch of new figures.
Firstly, there’s the Starter Packs where everything begins:
- Swap Force Starter Pack – Wash Buckler, Blast Zone, Ninja Stealth Elf (All platforms, excluding 3DS)
- Swap Force 3DS Starter Pack – Free Ranger, Rattle Shake, Volcanic Lava Barf Eruptor
- Swap Force Starter Pack Dark Edition – Dark Wash Buckler, Dark Blast Zone, Dark Ninja Stealth Elf, Dark Mega Ram Spyro, Dark Slobber Tooth
There’s quite the mix with Starter Packs this time, with something different in each of them. This could be the first time where fans are more likely to purchase multi-platform releases from day one, particularly with the Dark Edition being a limited run and no word yet on whether or not the dark variants will be available at a later date (outside of the Starter Pack).
A Super Bundle Pack exclusive to Wal-Mart in the U.S. will also be available for November 5th, 2013. It quickly sold out online however check in-store for stock availabilty.

Multi-Packs (Triple Packs & Double Packs)
The available Triple Packs will include the following:
- Fiery Forge Battle Pack – Bumble Blast, Fiery Forge, Knockout Terrafin (Series 3)
- Tower of Time Adventure Pack – Pop Thorn, Tower of Time, Battle Hammer & Sky Diamond

- Magic Triple Pack - Mega Ram Spyro (Series 3), Super Gulp Pop-Fizz (Series 2), Star Strike (Available November 1st)
Interesting to note, each triple pack includes a Series 1, Series 2, and Series 3 release character for added variety. For the first time, we’ll also see a double pack release, available in two versions:
- Double Pack 1 – Nitro Magna Charge, Free Ranger (Target U.S., Amazon.DE)
- Double Pack 2 – Nitro Magna Charge, Rattle Shake (Target U.S., Amazon.DE)
These packs are excellent value for those that pick up either the regular Starter Packs or Dark Edition for home consoles, however those getting the portable version will double up on figures as both Free Ranger and Rattle Shake are included in the 3DS Starer Pack.
Don’t forget to also head down to Toys ‘R Us to pick up your Legendary Swap Force Skylanders as they should be available for launch day.
The available Legendary Packs will include the following:
- Single Pack – Legendary Free Ranger
- Single Pack – Legendary Lightcore Grim Creeper
Free Ranger (Legendary)
Lightcore Grim Creeper (Legendary)
Enchanted Hoot Loop will be available from October 18th, exclusive to Wal-Mart in the U.S and GameStop in Norway. He should be available in other regions as well, but details are unavailable at this time.
