We’ve been reporting on where to find Bakugan in stock for a couple of months now starting back before Thanksgiving when Rainbow and Speedy first heard about Bakugan from a friend at school and our attempts to find them at local stores failed miserably. We’ve still see nothing in stock at Toys R Us locally most days. The actual stores look like they’ve had a Bakugan recall, as the Bakugan isles have been picked clean. As far as we can tell, there hasn’t been any recall of Bakugan yet.
First off, click here to find Bakugan Starter Packs at Amazon for only $6.49! That’s three Bakugan Battle Brawler balls and three cards for less than $7. Normal retail price is around $13, and these were selling on eBay before Christmas for $25 and up. Don’t know how long they will last, and at that price they’re a total steal. Buy another item or two to bring your order over $25 and get free shipping to boot.
The large baseball sized Bakugan Deka single figures at Amazon are not in stock from Amazon anymore. There are still a few third party sellers with them for $18-$20 each if these are a must have present for your favorite little Bakugan player.
The Bakugan Battle Packs are still in stock at Amazon for $24.99. Not a bad price for what you get.
The best Bakugan gift value remains the Battle Arena Mega Packs which I’ve only found on eBay ever. It includes 6 Bakugan marbles, 12 cards, and the Battle Arena in one box. Add up the cost of one Battle Pack, one Arena, and a couple of card packs and you’re saving some dough. Plus you have everything you need to play in one box.
Why am I telling you this? Because many disreputable sites that claim to have Bakugan available are charging $30+ for a starter pack and $60+ for an already opened Battle Pack and I don’t think that’s fair at all. And the other because after posting the Bakugan Toys review story, we started getting lots of people coming from the major search engines (Google, Yahoo and the like) through searches for all sorts of things like “Bakugan in stock”, “Buy Bakugan Toys” and “are bakugan recalled”, and “Where to find Bakugan Battle Brawlers”.
And when someone gets here via a random search, we like to provide them what they’re looking for, even if they don’t want to read the whole long post to get to the good stuff.
