The Giants starter pack is still £12.50 (Xbox360) or £15 (PS3) on Amazon, also some Tescos have them on all formats for between £12-£15 if you can find them (several in the clearance section at Tesco Leicester Hamilton yesterday).

Amazon also have a number of Giants characters starting at £2.50 and triple packs from £7.92 (need to spend £10 in total to get free postage)

Great thread, thanks op.

Argos had 3 for 2 for most of the Swap Force regular figures, works out £6 per one.

CEX has most of used Spyros figures for £3.

I expect most of them will go on sale, now that the new 2014 game Skylanders Trap Team has been announced for release in October.

I know the three for two deal had finished at game. Not sure about the other retailers though

Great!

Very good thread thanks

Great thread thanks. Just bought my boys Swap Force after constant nagging - they loved Giants. Am putting my fingers in my ears about a new game!

If anyone spots a deal for Swap Force Adventure Pack : Sheep Wreck Island, please post it here. It's well overpriced at the moment.

whats the deal with the characters flagged as "Lightcore" ?

whats the deal with the characters flagged as "Lightcore" ?



from the wiki page:

LightCore Skylanders are playable characters introduced in Skylanders: Giants. The Skylanders are protectors of the Core of Light, and in times of peril, they can call upon its power to ignite their own light from within and radiate with magic, becoming known as LightCore Skylanders.

These characters light up without batteries when placed near the Portal of Power. They have the ability to defeat all surrounding enemies when placed in the game. LightCore Skylanders also have different poses from their regular model. Despite some LightCores being Series 2 (Hex, Drobot, Eruptor, Prism Break, Warnado, Flashwing, and Wham-Shell), they do not have Wow Pow powers nor can they switch upgrade paths without resetting.

ahh right, thanks

On Wii portal they stay with lights all the time, but on 3DS portal, they only light up shortly during the transfer. I found it disappointing.

cheapest i ever saw Swap Force Adventure Pack : Sheep Wreck Island was £17.95 but its about £22 now

Crap! I meant to vote hot and it ended up giving a cole vote, sorry!

It's worth noting the Lightcore Hex comes in a Swap Force Pre-order box with a Swap Force Poster and a card to place on the Portal to unlock something or other. Mine arrived from Amazon today.

Thanks for the link, decided to get it from Tesco (same price) along with Scratch and Trap Shadow and use the Tdx-fcwl code to get £5 off

If you're after as many Skylanders as possible the £7.99 triple packs at Smyths might be your best bet if you're buying enough to net free delivery.

Yes, some of the included figures are £2.50 on their own at Amazon but others are harder to find alone and would cost more in the long run. No Triple Pack B (Chill, Zook, Ignitor) at Smyths though, odd.
Also there's a fair selection of Giants, er, giants at Smyths for £4.99 as mentioned in the OP. Swarm is £2.50 at Amazon so get him from there instead, but the rest of them seem to be the cheapest available.

Regarding the Giants Lightcore figures, here's something you may not know. During gameplay when a Lightcore figure is placed on the portal they will emit a damaging burst to enemies in the surrounding area as they spawn.

HOWEVER, Giants-era Lightcore Series 2 figures (characters introduced in Spyro's Adventure) do NOT come with their special "Wow Pow" abilities their normal variants come with. Their labels say Series 2 but they play like Series 1. Furthermore, Lightcore figures are not compatible with Spyro's Adventure while Series 2 figures are. So you might want to get regular Hex instead of Lightcore Hex.

On the other hand, Lightcore versions of characters introduced in Giants (such as Jet-Vac) never had Wow Pows until Swap Force anyway so their Lightcore figures are technically better (although Jet-Vac still sucks).
