Woot! Got one and used reward points too :) Thanks for the heads up, OP!

The Volcanic vault rung up at $25.00 for some reason when they scanned it, so he checked with some other guy and apparently the promotion is over. I didn't make a fuss over it though, the deal is already awesome

so any others confirm they can just pullup your RZ # and the price will ring up?

also is there any way to tell if the mega pack has the Volcano thing?

Correct. Once they pull up your RZ, there should be a prompt on their screen informing them of the promotion. I didn't print out a coupon or anything. Just brought the Mega Pack to checkout.


Got one for my son and daughter. thanks op

Did you buy two from the same RZ number? I would like to purchase another one and was curious if their systems would allow it.

I almost grabbed the standard Skylanders set for 50% off ($35) at a closing Sears a few weeks ago. This surprisingly AWESOME deal made me so grateful I didn't. $50 coupon plus $10 coupon from a few days back brought this to $44 and change after tax. Incredible.

... until I popped the disc in only to find it's defective. Ah well, the price makes the hassle easier to bear.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

So i went but they had n ps3 or xbox versions and had like 20 of the wii versions

but on the way the way to my girlfriends i just figured since you guys said the starter pack is a sealed retail one, so i can buy the wii megapack, then take the starter pack to walmart and say i grAbbed the wrong console one and trade it for an xbox pack, and still keep the toy packs from the mega pack , right?

Technically that's return fraud, however, if you are going to try then Wal-Mart would be the only store you'd be able to get away with it, their return policy is a joke unless it's an Air Mattress haha! I got the :360: version but I'd much rather have the PC version so I'm going to see if I can't sell it and go pick up a PC version at Fry's or MicroCenter.

Usually im not a douche like that, i work at a store that has a joke return policy (lowes) and that shit annoys me, howrver im not trying to come up on money, and they arguable can sell what i gave them for the same peice so maybe thats why i dont feel bad

justifying it doesn't make you less of a douche.

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 kinda disagree on this just due to the fact that they are basically locking content that's already in the game just to make more profit from kids having there parents shell out more money for the figures. I not saying this games bad its just that I hope not alot more developers follow this trend or we are all going to be broke from having to buy more dlc content that's locked from the disk. Just my opinion

Isn't that already happening with DLC from regular games? I mean they come out with GOTY versions eventually but it's about the same mindset.
At least they are being creative about it and kiddies got these neat figurines to collect.

Yeah but in all honesty this is prob the most expensive out of all of the games that do the dlc thing. I mean i think its like 8 bucks for basically 1 character? Thats alot especially a kid to save up for.

^Also, just wanted to quickly point out that data (levels, gold, skills, etc) is stored to the figures themselves and can be used between other versions of Skylanders as well as being forward compatible with the next Skylanders game that is coming out.

The SKU for starter pack and 3 packs are different than what's inside the mega pack. In case someone is planning to fraud.

Well, what's the DLC average? I've seen it range from $4.99 to $14.99 depending on what type on content.
At least you get a figurine for it, and holds some resell value with it (you can actually trade it in GS while DLC is just stuck on your console).

I don't even play this, I'm just being a devil's advocate. -shrugs-
I'm actually going to youtube gameplay to see what all the hype is about.

@iduncurr: Check out Classic Game Room's Skylanders reviews. It was the main reason I gave Skylanders a shot. I was never previously a fan of the classic Spyro or Legend of Spyro series.

I decided to purchase said Sklyander's heroin addiction starter kit as mentioned before. It was too good of a deal to pass up and I was on the fence about purchasing it for a few months.

I can see everyone's point about the overpriced dlc for just one character, but being a toy collector, I was considering collecting the figures just for the sake of collecting them. As a gamer, I might as well get some gaming use out of them (instead of just pretending that they're fighting Thanos in my mind). :)

So someone provide some clarity for me and offer a cliff notes version of how these work... I picked one up for my son's birthday in about a month, and I want to know how they work. But I'm trying to avoid the temptation to open it and try playing after he's in bed.

So do the figures actually have sort of chip in them? Or is it that you just scan some code and you don't need the figures anymore?

For those who are crying about how Skylanders has ruined Spyro...

http://www.vg247.com...omniacs-future/

And finally, for fun, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventures. Why bother with all this social and mobile nonsense when we’ve already discovered the real future of gaming?

We have it at home. My kids are really into it.

It’s wild, right? I feel like Child Me’s mind would have exploded at the mere thought of it.

I’m really happy for the franchise, because – when we walked away from it years ago – I was disheartened by the follow-ups to the games we had made. And now, to see it back with a fairly innovative concept is really rewarding for those of us who were on the first three Spyros.


tl;dr version - the CEO of Insomniac thinks this is the best Spyro game since the ones they worked on.
"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy, instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it."

Yeah, they have a chip in the base that communicates with the game via RFID. As you upgrade and level up your character, all the EXP is stored permanently on the chip in the base. The figure has to stay on the base the entire time you play. Each figure is essentially a "life" in a level, the more figures you have, the more chances you have to beat the level. If you remove a figure and put another on the portal, you change characters mid-level and become that new character. You use that mechanic to open up new areas within the game.
My son brings his leveled up characters over to his friends' houses and plays on their games, helping them to advance -- even if they play on the Wii and he's on the 360. It's a very cool product actually. Also the figures are really detailed and cool looking for the most part.

The UPC code on the Skylander Starter Pack in the Mega Pack is different then the UPC on the Starter Pack carried at Wal-Mart. The item will not scan in the system and so there they will not return it.

Serves him right for justifying return fraud. Hope the douche gets stuck with it.

I was watching the video reviews and it seems neat. I can see how kids and adults would get sucked into collecting everything. I think this is genius business wise. If my kids were a little older I'd probably buy it for them. Well let's see if I can ask my local bb to get a set shipped to their store and be able to apply the coupon. I'll probably get it anyways since I read that it's forward compatible with the expansion?

Thank you OP I just found a 360 version at my local BB. I will have some fun with this but I am going to have to resist the urge to buy extra characters. I will probably sell the additional packs off to make this an even better deal.
