No these are just add on, you need to buy the starter pack which is around $50

gshortelljr 12-15-2012 03:21 AM

Just started the Skylanders collection for the kid for xmas. Got him both starter packs. With these three he will have 18 to start. I can't believe i don't even have half of these

With the JCP button promo and the clearance sale on skylanders giants, I have picked up all the first wave ones free or almost free. 4/8 lightcores, 4/8 giants, 1 battle pack, 4 triple packs and all the singles. I have even picked up doubles to exchange for the new ones in the next waves. Other than the portal pack for $39 I will have all the figures for almost nothing.

"This listing is currently undergoing maintenance, we apologise for any inconvenience caused."

I think the slickdeals effect is getting them. Item shows that they sold 1,228 of them. Do they actually have that many????

lovefreebies4 12-15-2012 05:41 AM

In for one too, thank you!! Estimated delivery: Between Tuesday, Dec. 18 and Wednesday, Jan. 2

rijones 12-15-2012 05:43 AM

Ugh, picked one up, even though I have the regular Ignitor and Jet Vac already. My son really wants Slam Bam for Christmas. Anyone want to buy a Legendary Ignitor and Jet Vac? :-)

My local TRU had tons of these. I wonder if they weren't selling that well because folks already get Jet Vac (albeit not legendary) with the Giants starer pack.

UrbanEric 12-15-2012 05:50 AM

Great!!

PrncsNYC 12-15-2012 05:51 AM

Thanks. Will return the one I bought for full price minus my $20 groupon.

You need the starter pack, which comes with 3 characters - Tree Rex (life element), Jet Vac (air element), and Cynder (undead element). You need at least one character from each of the 8 "elements" [giantbomb.com] (water, earth, fire, tech, magic, air, undead, and life) to finish the game.

This. The repaints don't really do anything for my son. He is more interested in getting one of each character. At least the legendary figures are different in game, as well. My son was really excited when he found a Crystal Blue Bash in store, only to find out it looked just like normal Bash in the game.

You can beat the game with just the starter pack. To unlock every area and collect every hat/treasure, you one one of each element.

SupahRich 12-15-2012 06:26 AM

Awesome, found a cheap gift that my greedy, inconsiderate nearly 18 y/o twin cousins MAY enjoy for a Christmas gift. If they complain about the gift as they usually do each year... I'll yank it away and find another local child who would be happy to have it :D

At 18? Give them gas cards, fast food gc, or cash. My 3&6 year old play this game.

No, this is basically a "booster" pack with extra figs. You need the base set that comes with the "Portal" to put the Skylanders on.

Neither drive, they actually requested that their mom buy them the Skylanders Giants starter pack for Wii for Christmas so this gift may enhance the game for them. I guess you can say that they're "different", I like to say they're from Generation "B" for Bieber.

At 18 I was worried about where the party was. But thats the new generation for you.

Shredso 12-15-2012 07:32 AM

Went OOS while I went upstairs to see which ones we already got the kids! One would have been a double.

TheLounge 12-15-2012 07:40 AM

I will just wait til spring when these will be like $10 a set.

It's not THAT weird. I'm 40-ish and play the game occasionally (when my kids aren't dominating the xbox360). It's reminiscent of the old Gauntlet game. I guess it takes me back to the days of dropping my weekly allowance in the arcade....and it gives me an excuse for dropping so much money on this game and figures!

Admittedly, there are many older people playing this game that get WAY too into it....they can tell you the different attributes, upgrade paths, etc. I guess sometimes I just like to run around and kill things in a cuter, and less violent way!

Picked up 2 of these packs back when TRU was doing the B1 50% off....but that only brings them down to $18.75 per pack. Wonder if it's worth the $8 to pick up 2 and return back to the store. Really didn't need 2 to begin with, but they didn't have anything else in the $25 price range that my kids didn't already have.

Hey Im not judging. Im 30 now and still play video games. But damn, at 18, those are the years to go have fun and party before adulthood. All I wanted for Christmas when I was that age was money. Playing Spyro was the last thing in my mind when I was younger.

yuckmouth 12-18-2012 12:39 PM

Received today, it's the wrong item. Apparently from the six reps I talked to, this is a big issue for them. three could not find my order. Three could. They had to transfer me all over the place. I spent about 50 minutes on the phone all together and got nowhere.

Because this is fulfilled through ebay (GSI Commerce), they can't reship, cross-ship, price match or do anything other than give me a prepaid return label. What a mess. I asked if I could rebuy it at the same price for $14 and they told me they could give me 10% off the list price. What a bunch of garbage. Their feedback on ebay is not so great.

yuckmouth 12-18-2012 12:44 PM

Oh nice... and I see because they are a "powerseller" you can't leave negative feedback for them until 7 days have passed! Garbage.

It does not seem like it. Toys R Us customer service will tell you that they do not handle calls for ebay purchases then give you the number to contact the people who do (866-909-3505). Once you call them they will act real friendly and are well aware that the wrong item was shipped but still tell you that you can not exchange the Skylanders you received for the Legendary ones you actually ordered. Your options then are to get 10% of the wrong Skylanders you already received, or ship your Skylanders back with a shipping label they will send you and get 10% off your next purchase from Toys R Us. If anyone gets any different result please let me know.

swolgam 12-18-2012 07:24 PM

I got the wrong ones today also. Yea this is just plain horrible. Best thing for that failing company to do is reship the correct ones to everyone and not worry about asking for these back. What a mess.

alundber 12-18-2012 07:41 PM

Yeah. 10% off your next TRU purchase is probably still more than retail. What a joke.

my2k2zx2 12-18-2012 07:55 PM

I guess Toys R Us didn't know to find the 3 pack with their own "Only at Toys R Us" logo. You would think with them being the only place with Legendary figures they would know what to send out.

alundber 12-19-2012 07:53 AM

I don't see any mistake here. This was a bait and switch.

tbodway 12-19-2012 02:56 PM

Got the wrong one also. Going to go to the store and see if they will do an even exchange. Seems like the best bet here.

lefeb1jj 12-19-2012 03:37 PM

I also received the Chill, Zook and Ignitor pack....obviously not an "innocent" error.

UrbanEric 12-19-2012 07:25 PM

I also received the Chill, Zook and Ignitor pack. (Insert Profanity here) FAIL!
How is TRU via eBay NOT Toys R Us?
Scammed.

Does the 10% off have ANY limitations (i.e. video game consoles, expiration date, etc.)? 10% off a big ticket item might be good to have.....

yuckmouth 12-19-2012 08:22 PM

TRU's call center used to be run by GSI commerce. From what I understand, they no longer have the partnership but now GSI has Ebay (they have/had some other big accounts like NFL.com, dicks sporting goods). There is probably some kind of 3rd party admin swag going on where they cut a deal on rate or something like that. Their call center is actually about 15 minutes from my house. They offered me a pretty good gig there four years ago. I passed.

SupahRich 12-20-2012 11:43 AM

Wrong item for me as well... wouldn't have been a big deal if it wasn't a Christmas gift for out of staterelatives! They better take the item back with free return shipping or I'll file a PayPal claim.

akaBen 12-20-2012 02:43 PM

Wrong for me as well... :(

-ben

mceaton 12-20-2012 04:07 PM

Wrong item here too. Ignitor, Chill, Zook received. Clearly not the same item.

geki3 12-20-2012 06:22 PM

All you will get is a reply saying they will ship you a UPS label to mail it back.

SupahRich 12-20-2012 07:20 PM

Can't wait til the 7 business day so I can leave my feedback, damnit!

BigDubbe 12-21-2012 05:55 AM

Emailed them a message on ebay and this is what they sent back.

Thank you for contacting Toys "R" Us on eBay regarding your order, Order #********. We are sorry that you received the wrong item, and we apologize for any disappointment this may have caused you.

Because of the mistake, I have requested a credit for the 3 Pack from your order, Order #********. This credit will be processed within approximately 2-3 business days, at which time you will receive a credit confirmation via email. You may keep or dispose of the 3 Pack as you desire. I hope this resolves all of your concerns.


So free Skylanders are the best.

nolf66 12-21-2012 07:47 AM

I just sent a message also and will see what will happen.

We did go to Toysrus at 6am for wave 3 release today and all they had new was singles. Lighting Rod, Stealth Elf and Cynder. They did restock the Legendary 3 pack so I did a exchange and was charged a dollar extra for tax. Also found LC Shroom Boom yesterday and it sold out in minutes. Toysrus also raised its price on Skylanders today as well. Good thing I got extra almost free from JCP to buy the new ones and return the ones from JCP.

I guess you are lucky, they wont give me that option. Just sending a label for a return/refund with no option of an exchange.

SupahRich 12-21-2012 02:38 PM

I tried to send a message to them via E-Bay and received the same response that many others received... will send a return shipping slip and will take up to 10 business days after receipt to refund the order. They offered the 10% off purchase deal as well.

nolf66 12-21-2012 05:40 PM

My reply was a return and refund plus %10 discount later. Glad I exchanged it today instead.

Tsiawd 12-21-2012 06:40 PM

wow Got my package today and the same thing........ What a crock of $hit! A refund and keeping them is what they should do for everyone. I dont want to drive 30 minutes in X-mas traffic to try and exchange it! ARRRRGGGG

fisch8 12-22-2012 05:54 AM

I got mine yesterday and same thing...returned mine to Wally World and made a $11 profit! Turned around and bought one on Ebay for $29 w/free shipping (there are a few sellers at this price). Granted it will come after Christmas, but at least I got one for a couple dollars more than what Toys r us charged me. Good Luck all and I will never buy from toys r us Ebay again!!!
