Just found this on gamestop while looking at the Skylanders figures.

It comes with a Crystal version of Cynder, which is pretty rare. The bundle is $299.99

Hmm, Maybe if it contained every character available...still doesn't seem like the best way to get it all...considering the starter pack can be found quite cheaply if you go the Bestbuy route.

Plenty of people will buy this. They really struck gold with this cash cow.

Well considering each adventure pack is $20 a piece
a Starter Pack is about $60 (you can probably find it cheaper although this mega pack is for wii)
and each figure is about $10 a piece. (you can buy those 3 character packs for cheaper)
That is what $260? + tax of course
You are essentially paying $40 for the Crystal Cynder Character and the Strategy guide...and the convenience of not collecting them individually I guess?

Well if you can sell the Crystal Cynder for $100+, you can sell the rest and make a few bucks. Probably not worth it though.

Also GS10 and 50SHIP do not work with it.

Doesn't look like it right now since they don't have a [Want it in a hurry] option to check in-store stock. Possibly in the near future?

Would definitely love to get my hands on that Cynder, but thats about all that catches my eye with this, as I own most of what is included.

Though it is nice to see a large bundle like this available for those just starting out, I got most of the enjoyment from tracking the figures down on my own when they were scarce. Not so much anymore that they finally caught up with the demand.

I'm okay without a Blue Bash or Crystal Cynder.

Will there be like a Silver Spyro or Golden Ghost Roaster soon?

Its true isn't it... if i didnt have any skylander purchase yet and was to buy an "ultimate bundle", id rather have the complete set of characters all at once. The bundle is missing the dragon's peak adventure pack and the 2 latest 3 packs which are still hard to find at this moment.

This bundle is definitely aimed at collectors (Crystal Cynder's inclusion) and the people who are on the fence about Skylanders, but have already did the research. Anyone else likely would've went into sticker shock.

I think it's a pretty good deal, but I'm already sold on Skylanders, so I'm not exactly unbiased. What I can tell you is what you're still missing from a complete set...if you're into that sort of thing and that at minimum, if you do want everything, you're probably gonna spend around another $160-$200:

Missing to complete full set:

Dragon's Peak Adventure Pack (comes w/Sunburn)

*Ignitor (also available in the 3DS starter pack)
Hex
*Camo
*Regular Cynder (will be no different in game to Crystal Cynder)
*Warnado
Wham-Shell
*Zook
*Lightning Rod

*Legendary Bash (TRU exclusive)
*Legendary Chop Chop (TRU exclusive)
*Legendary Spyro (TRU exclusive)
Legendary Trigger Happy (TRU exclusive)

Dark Spyro (only available in the 3DS starter pack in the US)

*Also comes in a 3 pack with other characters that are missing.

I don't get the Skylanders craze but I enjoy these threads, if only for the roll-call of dumb character names. I'll trade my Kip Jobber for your Crush Rusher!

9x35 or so = 315. Plus a starter pack? + 3x adventure packs worth $75.

Yeah, that's not gonna happen.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I don't get the people who resell stuff like this for insane prices, but I really don't get the idiots who pay for it. At some point don't you feel kinda shitty for taking advantage of someone's OCD? I mean, it's a clear plastic piece of shit, right?

I don't see why people are giving this 1 star and talking it down.

Crystal Cynder has sold for $300 on eBay multiple times in the very recent past, and this item is already out of stock. This was a great catch. If you sell Crystal Cynder, the rest is free.

I agree. This would be much cheaper than buying them at $8-10 each to complete a collection.

And for people confused on why people are paying $300 for a "piece of plastic", look at the value of vintage GIJoes and Star Wars as well as old baseball/FB/BKB cards. As long as the supply is low and the demand can withstand the test of time, this will be valuable.
