I only bought the Dark Edition. I really wanted Popthorn, though.

I would never get my kids this game. So expensive.

He is unbelievably cute, and surprisingly viable gameplay-wise. Hopefully they release him as an individual toy for the holidays.

Which is why I'm told to buy all of it myself, though I believe the figures and game are worth the price, no matter how big of a money grab scheme it seems.



I personally loved Rattle Shake. I love his tail strike, though it makes him go still for a moment, I still find him fun to use. While it does become harder to use him if he's not very far up the level ladder around mid-to-late game, he's still a fun character to consider. Him with Blast Zone's bottom half are one of my favorite combinations--Rattle Zone, you'd say.

I was a very big fan of Chill's redesign. Blizzard Chill's redesign looks really cool to me (pun intended), which is why she was one of the first I picked up.

My favorites of the new ones so far though are Roller Brawl, Rattle Shake, and Wash Buckler.

Star Right now, Free Ranger, Star Strike, and Smolderdash are my killing machines.

Funny, all three of which I do not own. xD
I have Dark S3 Spyro, Dark S3 Stealth Elf, Dark Wash Buckler, Dark Blast Zone, Dark Slobber Tooth, S3 Chill, Roller Brawl, and I got LightCore Hex for Giants as a bonus for the Dark Starter Pack, so I've been using most of them as well as my 65-strong collection. xD

Star My Skylanders kingdom. I'm fortunate enough to have paid for only half (or fewer) of those. Not all the toys really cater to my tastes.

P.S. A full review of the game will be coming soon.

Lucky for you. I had to pay for every single one I own myself, including the Dark Starter pack, and everything.

I might have to look for new ways to earn money soon. xD

I never bothered with these games. Is SWAPFORCE a reboot in the sense that all older characters don't work with it? I think the original and Giants were compatible, but the idea I got was that neither were compatible with this one, due to the nature of the game.

Either way, I must compliment the creativity behind the characters. Some aren't that great, but some are pretty interesting looking.

All Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders: Giants figures work in Skylanders: Swap Force. The only ones I've seen not work are the Sidekicks.
