    Well shiver me timbers it's time for another instalment of the billion dollar franchise ...

    Many of you know I love these games.




    Available October 5th USA & 9/10th Europe on PS4, Wii U, Xbox One, 360 & PS3

    3DS version is a different game.


    Some next ten screenshots.

    This explains the huge pricedrop/closeouts on Giants and now Swapforce... ;)

    This will look exceptional on all the newest consoles (Wii U, PS4, XBox1).

    Yep picked up a few characters I skipped simply because they had dropped to half price myself. :)

    Can't wait for the new one. Not bothered about Disney Infinity 2.0 however..

    I just returned from GAME with my Skylanders haul: Dark Edition starter pack, regular starter pack, all eight currently available Trap Masters and a couple of the new standard guys.

    I won't get back until late with the kids, so they'll get to open it all in t morning. Apart from the Dark Edition and any Legendaries; they always get saved for Xmas.

    And then tomorrow afternoon I'll take them into town for 'round two' and get the rest of the standard characters, minis and traps.

    Yeah I only missed one of the trap masters, so I'll go to a different store to buy him, and I'm still contemplating picking up standard edition on the xbox one for regular characters. I probably won't buy 'old' characters remodelled. I'd rather just get the new ones and use my existing old ones in the new game, I've only got 4 traps so far, so must pick up the remaining element ones I am missing too.

    And they wonder why this franchise has made billions ///// its lunatics like us :D

    Well, that was certainly an expensive trip to Toys R Us....

    We now have all of the wave 1 & 2 regular characters, Trap Masters, adventure packs and minis, aside from Nitro Krypt King which might be exclusive to Tesco.

    We have 17 traps in total so I just need to work out which ones of those we're missing.

    LOL... I know I feel like I'm being 'challenged' :confused::eek::D;)

    It's just a great game, whether young or old - once it hooks you - you remain hooked. It has something many games fail to have in the modern age - charm / wit and vibrancy. Lots of depth behind the shiny vibrant exterior - its the total antithetical game of most modern day games. It's old school but in the best possible way :D

    The last thing I need is another cash spending hobby so I will take your word on it. It definitely looks interesting but I am keeping it at arms length. :)

    ...that, in addition, requires me to collect a large number of objects. I already have so much in my office, it is spilling over into the rest of the house, and I'm afraid somebody may call one of those hoarding TV shows :eek:

    Yeah to be honest playing sky landers is like a ritual because I have to get all the ones I want to play with, sorted into generations, sorted into elements and it can take me a good 30 mins to get myself all set up and then same for putting them away... T'insanely OCD addictive.
