Skylanders: Swap Force Wave 3 Out January 20th in Australia?

Post by on Skylanders: Swap Force 2069 29

Swap Force Wave 3 could be out this month in Australia according to multiple sources.

[UPDATE]: EB Games Australia confirm the release date is correct via Twitter. :D

Big W online has listed a couple of items from Wave 3 with an expected release date for January 20th. If you don’t want to head in-store to try your luck, you can hit the link below to place a pre-order.

Hyper Beam Prism Break Horn Blast Whirlwind Rip Tide Triple Pack

Unfortunately not all the figures are available to buy, only a Series 3 Phantom Cynder ($12 AUD) or a triple pack containing Horn Blast Whirlwind, Rip Tide and Hyper Beam Prism Break ($28 AUD).

Phantom Cynder Single Pack

EB Games Australia has reportedly also started to display posters in-store advertising a Wave 3 release for January 20th, further adding fuel to the release date rumour. EB Games is yet to update their online store so you’ll have to ask your local store for more details if they are accepting pre-orders at this stage.

Whether or not the wait is over for Australian, we’ll find out in a one week time. If you need a reminder of what Wave 3 comprises of, check out our detailed list via the link here.

International Portal Masters can find more information on availability in their area here.

Thanks to Ree for the Big W tip and Kayne_ for the update this morning! :)

    Well the Swappers are listed as Feb 14 on MightyApe, so I wouldn’t hold my breath to see those on the 20th(though maybe, hopefully, someone gets them early). I hope they come out on the 20th with the rest of the Cores- it would be cruel having waited since mid-Dec and having the only truly new Skylander from the next release being Dune Bug. :(
    I’m not holding my breath though and I expect that they will break them into two different releases (having the new SF come out later than the Cores) like they did everywhere else.

    It’s good to finally have some kind of confirmation on something new though.

  • Hawksey

    Sounds great! Looking at the Big W listings, I’ve discovered no further listings on Big W. Perhaps EB Games has something now.
    Just checked: Still only listings of Sheep Wreck Islands and Arkeyan Crossbow. I already have them, and found them in-store many times.
    No listings of the rest of Wave 3 yet.

  • Hawksey

    BIG NEWS! EB GAMES HAS LISTED ALL SWAPPERS AND LIGHTCORE AS IN STORE! GO GO GO AUSSIE FANS!

    • Nibelilt

      “Go Go Aussie Fans” reminds me of POWER RANGERS! Haha! XD

      • Hawksey

        Ha ha same! I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. Those Sneak Zones always seem to get to me, and seeing the US get them, I knew I had to get them sooner or later xD

  • Hawksey

    I am not lying, this is true! EB Games has listed all swappers and lightcore as in-stock. We better jump on that :)

  • Hawksey

    Getting Stink Bomb on EB Games. You have to look at the Featured part for SWAP Force and find it.

  • Hawksey

    I thought that listings on Big W had been updated, but unfortunately, they only added Hoot Loop. Not Enchanted Hoot Loop, which is surprising.
    I’ll go to my local Big W down near the South End of Victoria and check it out. Then I’ll go watch some Cricket :D

  • eddiej27

    I found wave 3 swappers & light cores at jb hi fi parramatta in nsw so I picked up stink bomb & rubble rouser

  • Nibelilt

    Got LightCore Wham-Shell, LightCore Countdown, Stink Bomb, Rubble Rouser and Spy Rise today! From EB Games. Went into Target and they said they put out some new stock but nothing besides SWI/AC from W3(just some W2 restocks), though they also said there could have been more at the back(but more likely, that they were simply getting this new stuff a bit later).

    • Hawksey

      Wait, they are out?

      • Hawksey

        I haven’t seen them. However, I have ordered Stink Bomb online so hopefully that will get here soon. Said the 22nd the but I’m not sure.
        Check Big W for the cores too.

        • Nibelilt

          I don’t know which state you live in, but I’m in Melbourne, which might have something to do with it. My EB Games tends to get pretty good stock though and tend to get it a bit early as well. They also said they were restocking these five figures next week.
          I’m hoping that they get this W3 restock on the 20th (which is Monday next week, of course) with the rest of the wave coming out on that same day. It seems most people can’t get the W3 Swappers so I really hope they restock a whole bunch of them.

          • Hawksey

            I actually am in Victoria too. I live in Ballarat, they can get things early or late. I’ll check Big W for Cores on Tuesday.

  • Hawksey

    Big W Update! Lightcores listed and Swappers! Both have pictures!

  • Hawksey

    Went to JB-Hi Fi in Westfield (at Geelong) and picked up Spy Rise, Countdown and Wham-Shell (Both Lightcore)
    I also found the Darklight Crypt item preowned at EB Games. I already found Ghost Roaster preowned and got it, so my pack is almost complete there :p
    Looked around everywhere! Nothing! Saw some kids holding RUBBLE ROUSER! I asked where they got it and they looked at my bag and said “Where you got that from.” So they beat me! Lol ahh!
    Went to Target, of all places. They have ALL Wave 3 Swappers and Lightcores! What are the chances?
    They had Stink Bomb, sadly. But I know I am getting that.
    Countdown has a very, very nice figure. Wham-Shell lights up in a great place, Rubble Rouser’s top half feels really big, for some reason. Spy Rise… AMAZING! Go to your local Target for your best chance at getting Wave 3 Swappers and Lightcores. Found Sheep Wreck Islands and Arkeyan Crossbow there too. Already got them, but you know.

  • Hawksey

    Big W listings. False. No Phantom Cynder or the triple pack. Only Swappers and Lightcore.

    • Nibelilt

      Yep, I checked all of my stores on the 20th and didn’t find anything new. Just restocks of the other stuff from this wave.

      • Hawksey

        Yep. Disappointing.

  • Star Strike

    Can anyone tell me whether Dune Bug has been released in AUS yet?

    • Hawksey

      Sorry dude. No news on it yet :( We hope to get it really soon :)

  • Kaye

    Still no cores anywhere

    • Hawksey

      Really hoping for a release soon. We should probably check EB Games and Target first. They are very up-to-date with their Skylanders.

    • Nibelilt

      I haven’t found any either, and we still have no word on Legendary Night Shift after months of waiting. I’m getting pretty annoyed from this release schedule now. :|

      • Hawksey

        Legendary Night Shift isn’t a huge one we need, but considering he came a week after Legendary Zoo Lou, this is frustrating.
        Maybe Activision is so focused on creating Skylanders 4 now they forgot about everything…

  • Hawksey

    Nothing still :(

  • Kaye

    Found all 5 cores in EB games Fri/Sat….took visiting 4 different stores as my local only had 4 of the 5 and all stores told me they only got delivered between 1-4 of each character without warning on friday

    • Hawksey

      Ahh, ok. So probably still check?

  • Hawksey

    Well I finally got my Hyper Beam Prism Break…
