In other Wave 3 news, today saw the introduction of the five new Wave 3 characters in Skylanders Lost Islands, you can now get Rubble Rouser, Stink Bomb, Spy Rise, Dune Bug and Wind-Up in the game, which means that at long last it is possible to match the Earth element Sugarbats. Last Friday saw a specially squeezed in Christmas update for the game as well:

[User Posted Image]

  • Jolly Bumble Blast makes his festive debut. It'll be 250 Gems if you don't have the toy.
  • A new SWAP Force House has been added, buy them for 350 Gems to put your SWAP Force characters in for the chance to earn Gold, Gems, Energy or Kingdom XP.
  • Another new companion, Fiznik, he'll double the Kingdom XP you get for the rather pricey sum of 3000 Gems.

And earlier last week they posted the regular Monday update.

[User Posted Image]

  • New companion Diggs who you can use to trade in large amounts of Gold and Energy for Gems once a day. He'll cost you 2000 Gems but is said to be only available until January 1st.
  • The Legendary Skylanders are here, all four of the new Legendaries from SWAP Force have been added. That's Legendary Night Shift, Legendary Free Ranger, Legendary Grim Creeper and Legendary Zoo Lou.
  • A new system has been added so that Kingdom XP is still moderately useful after reaching the maximum kingdom level of 40. Your bar will again start to fill up as you gather it and will eventually give you some bonus gems and wish stones as a reward.

The Skylanders Collection Vault also recently saw an update which allows you to now add characters to your collection even if you don't have their webcode.

I hope someone will give us some new updates about Wave 3. All of us are dying to wait to play Stink Bomb and enter the Sneak Zones. Also, Sheep Wreck Islands, 8 new Arena Battles and 1 more Bonus Mission will be even sweeter and more challenging than the previous ones.

Just one question, are the figures outside of the US and from different countries like Germany region-free?

No, the only difference is the packaging, which has a different hook, and some of the messages are in different languages.

@Matteomax: So what you're saying is that figures from foreign countries are not compatible with the US game whatsoever? It's kinda like how an American DVD player is unable to play DVDs from other countries.

Many of us think either Wave 4 or 5. But that's just a Fairy's tail currently...

I feel really bad for the other retail stores like GameStop, Walmart and Best Buy. TRU gets the Skylanders before them.

The swappables are exclusive to Target in the US at least for the time being. I got mine 2 Weiss who at my Target store, but we haven't seen a shipment since the initial shipment of 3 of each swappable figure. I'm so waiting to hear about the packs though. I really want to play with Camo since he was one of my favorites from the first Skylanders game.

They arrive at my local TRU and Best Buy a day or two after I posted. The 3 swappable Skylanders were an exclusive to Target for about 2 weeks prior to my post according to the Target ad.

I AGREE! It is very irritating that they held back some of the obviously cooler characters until the end. We would them whether they staggered the release or not.

Activision likes to do this to keep the customers hooked on it, if they let them all out at once, the skylander fans would loose interest in the game.
