    Both game and gamestation had plenty when I looked, Tesco also do them (cheaper I might add), as do Argos and Toys R Us. I bought a load for my Nephew for christmas so he had at least one of each element so we could explore all the areas.

    Dont forget that all the characters have not yet been released. Only about half of them are out so far.

    There were loads in our local Game (Hounslow) the other day, going down to have a look in a while to get another one. But my cousin can't fnd them anywhere around the Sutton area so it seems very locale specific as to whether there are stock or not.

    I'm just looking into this game and the characters and I've noticed certain ones are totally sold out and now going for silly money in places. Will they make some more or is it a limited release for certain characters?

    For example Chop Chop and Stealth Elf.

    ....Think my sons ( 7 & 5 years old ) have about 8 characters, but they've finished the games main storyline really quickly. There's some really buggy levels that don't like co-op too. I've checked for game updates but there don't seem to be any patches or extra content. I wonder how they are going to balance the game content with the extra characters, as the game gets really easy to complete if you've got a few characters to burn through.

    How is everyone else finding the actual game - does it have longevity ?

    Looks like the shortage is being addressed along with new characters. Glad I've not paid silly money on eBay for anything. As Stealth Elf, Eruptor and Chop Chop are wanted bug time now in this house.

    Most of them are all coming back into stock at the end of the month beginning of Feb. Plus some new characters coming out and adventure packs.

    Play and Amazon had pre-orders up a few days ago of some of the rare ones. We managed to get them all ordered before the allocation was up and they went out of stock again. You really do need to keep checking for them.

    It would appear Whirlwind, Drill Sergeant (Asda exclusive), Dark Spyro and Ignitor (both only obtained with 3DS starter pack) are the urber rare ones. Plus the Toys r us Legendary triple pack, which was exclusive to them only.

    Hmm - I've got those characters, but the game is just about worn out now - there's not much content, even for my youngsters who'll normally re-play anything. They've gone back to Castle Crashers now - that never gets old apparently.....

    If it keeps the kids happy its worth every penny, so no its not costing a lot really compared to 3 kids happiness.

    Got Eruptor, Chop Chop and Bash triple pack from a friend at work who doubled up at Xmas. Just paid some store price as he did.

    Whirlwind and Drill Sergeant coming out in a triple pack next month. Glad I never got tempted with eBay prices on those.

    You will be able to get them in the following combinations:

    A Triple Pack containing Whirlwind, Drill Sergeant and Double Trouble.
    Single Packs of Cynder, Double Trouble, Whirlwind, Drill Sergeant.
    And the Adventure Pack "Empire of Ice" with Slam Bam.

    They were on Amazon.de but it was put on HUKD and it looks like all the allocated stock has gone already. No news on UK dates yet. Unfortunately people are buying this in multiples to sell on eBay :mad: I've ordered the 3DS pack for £35 from The Hut to get Dark Spyro and Ignitor. Will then just sell the 3DS game/Portal on.

    there is a rumour that they will come out later in a future wave, but this seems a cheap way to get them at the moment. Not the £30+ per character on eBay :nono:

    Does the 3DS version use the Portal? Where does it plug in to? can you use the Xbox one on it? (having bought the actual game of course)

    From what I can see the Empire of Ice adventure pack should be released very soon, hopefully next week. This should give you another chapter - so thats another 10 minutes of game play for your characters ;)

    Walmart are selling Empire of Ice in the USA on Jan 24th, however some have managed to get it early. I managed to get the new triple pack (Drill Sergeant, Whirlwind and Double Trouble) + Cynder before it went out of stock pre-ordered @ Amazon.com.

    Hopefully my mate will be getting the 3 adventure packs from Walmart for me @ $20 each.

    Strange how no UK site has the new Wave of characters for pre-order yet.

    How does that work - is it DLC, or more stuff to cram on the portal ?
