This Summer I ate a ton of hot dogs but now that it is cold I’m looking for an entirely different Hot Dog. Hot Dog is part of the Scorpion Striker Battle Pack that is exclusive to GameStop for the month of January and will be available more widespread after the month is up. I went to GameStop a ton of times to try and find this set but it was nowhere to be found. So I turned to the internet again and went to the GameStop site. The set had not been available for a little while but when I last tried it was available and I even found a code for free shipping so I ended up getting it delivered to the house today for free. But I haven’t gotten to play with these guys yet. Soon enough, soon enough.
One of the most hotly anticipated video game sequels was released on October 21. Skylanders Giants is the follow up to last year’s Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. I played Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure last year and all throughout the year. I loved it and collected each and every Skylanders figure that I could get my hands on. There were 32 regular figures from Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure which works out to four figures from each of the eight elements (Life, Water, Undead, Fire, Air, Tech, Earth and Magic). I bought them all plus four legendary figures and a few other special ones. Now with Skylanders Giants there are 48 figures plus variants so by the time I’m done collecting this time around I’ll probably have close to 100 figures. But that is okay because I LOVE this series of games and I’m playing everything that has to do with Skylanders and Skylanders Giants. I even wrote a handy guide for people interested in the Skylanders Giants game.
Here’s how the characters break down for Skylanders Giants:
- Eight brand new regular size characters, one from each element.
- Eight brand new Giants figures, one from each element.
- Eight Lightcore regular size characters, one from each element.
- Twenty-Four regular size Series 2 Skylanders figures (characters from Skylanders: Spyro’s adventure in new poses)
- 4-6+ Legendary Figures
- 4-6+ Variant Figures
On the day of the release I bought every single figure that was released and on the next day Toys R US had a wave two preview and I bought all but two of the figures from that wave, I still cannot find Lightcore Jet Vac. A friend online actually found and bought Hot Head (Fire Element Giant) for me and tweeted to me that he got it for me, so excited for that one.
