Avoid the Skylanders - ripoff.
on December 20, 2015
My son begged for Skylanders for Christmas. Got him both Swap Force and Trap Team. At the time, Trap Team cost $79.99 for the "starter kit". Quickly learned you had to keep buying new characters just to play the game.
Between Trap Team & Swap Force - plus all the additional characters, including Enchanted Hoot Loop, invested roughly $250+ on Skylander merchandise. It didn't take long for my son to tire of the game.
Worse, my 9-year-old son decided he didn't want the Skylanders anymore, so we took all the stuff to Game Stop (which buys used games and gaming equipment.
Received $0.25 store credit for Swap Force. 25 CENTS! Received $1.50 for Trap team!. Game Stop only wanted the game discs. Didn't want the portals, the trap pieces, nor any of the characters that came with the kits.
The various characters such as Enchanted Hoot Loop, Jade Fire Kraken, Wash Buckler, etc., fetched 50 cents to $2.00. In total, he ended up with about $15 in store credit. Skylanders - a HUGE ripoff!!
As for Kickoff Countdown - one did like this character.
