[QUOTE]Why Mega Bloks instead of LEGO?
Because Activision.

Where will the sets be available?
They will be available at Amazon, Toys "R" Us, Walmart, and Target mid-November.

How much will these building sets cost?
Your savings account
There is no wallet
Clicking on the set pictures links directly to their corresponding Mega Bloks page. You can find information from this thread and more, such as prices and where they are sold.

Are these figures compatible with either Skylanders game? There doesn't seem to be any benefit to buying them. Besides, it's Mega Bloks.
No, but they are incredible. See for yourself. Mega Bloks has really upped their quality for these new Skylanders Giants sets.

There are so many pretty pictures! How can I tell how much money I need to throw at the screen?
The main sets are ordered by price (including the exclusives and battle packs). In short, it's Skylanders--surrender your wallet now.

Spoiler


Are these toys suitable for younger fingers? I'd much rather play with them myself, but you know how kids are...THAT'S MY TREE REX, TREVOR!
All Mega Bloks Skylanders sets are for ages 5+, but I have a feeling more scalpers adult collectors will be hoarding buying a complete set than children.

Will I look like a fool buying these at retail?
If you're uncomfortable with buying toys because you're "cool", you can always order online at Amazon. (Hint: Your likes surpass the opinions of strangers.)
However, if you've already spent over $200 on Skylanders figures, you may as well bathe in these building sets!

Spoiler


What are "Battle Portal Packs"?
The LEGO Ninjago of Mega Bloks Skylanders Giants. Each $10 pack comes with a Skylander, a sheep/Chompy, and a portal that lights up and can slide into another portal.

Plus it's a cheap way to get a single Skylander you like!

...Again, like Ninjago.[/QUOTE]Posted Image

Really? Didn't realize the TRU big book was out yet. There was a B1G1 50% off all Mega Bloks sale online last week, but the only sets in stock were the Battle Packs, Crusher's Pirate Quest, and Dark Castle Conquest.

Thank goodness Amazon put the four main sets up for preorder. At least you can preorder now as a backup plan!
