it received only 4 stars because sadly like all technology something better came along the series 2 figures are a dramatic upgrade, how ever if youre like me and dont yet have Giants OR once again like me want a complete collection then these are well worth the money, the other reason it received 4 stars is 2 of the 3 are out classed by the 3 legendary pack, so the stats them selves are not as high, just because its a differance of 12 of a stat here or there doesnt mean it wont play a roll later on

If you are just starting out, triple packs are the way to go, best value in obtaining characters at a more reasonable price. These 3 were requested for Christmas and arrived in perfect condition! All of these ( Eruptor, Chop Chop, and Bash) are series 1 characters and play in Spyro's Adventure game as well as in the newer Giant's game. All are interchangable for any console you might own.

I purchased this three pack at my local Wal-Mart for $19.99. Overall, I like this set very much. I am only reviewing the figurines, not the seller here.
Bash- Bash is definitely one of my favorite Skylanders. I am 17, and my brother, who is 21, also loves his tough- guy look. Even though he is as slow as molasses trekking through the levels, he makes it well worth it with his strength. I love watching him defeat enemies with his spiked tail! Also, using his roll attack to actually roll through the level instead of walking makes him a lot faster. I love his design, and his figurine is very sturdy. I just can't say enough good things about him, because he is so awesome.
Eruptor- I find Eruptor to be disappointing. He is my fire type Skylander, and while he is extremely cool looking and his lava pool attack is very good, I find his performance sub-par. His main attack, which involves him throwing balls of lava, is difficult to aim. This may be operator error, but I just find him difficult to use. Since his good attack, the lava pool, requires him to be right up on the target and also takes a few seconds to go into effect, he tends to not last long in combat. As I said, I may just be bad at using him, but I only use him when I have to. Aesthetically though, he looks very appealing. His figurine is also sturdy, and will stand up to wear and tear if you or your kids play with the figurines themselves.
Chop Chop- He is just wonderful! I love that he has a shield, which deflects frontal attacks, and his sword does great amounts of damage. A great Skylander for close combat. My only problems with him come from the design of the figurine itself. Like Stealth Elf, Chop Chop is made of less plastic than other Skylanders. He is thin and kind of flimsy. His pose also makes him more fragile, because half of him is not attached to the pedestal. I am always extremely careful with him for fear of breakage. His design is very neat looking, and as I have noticed when I was picking my Skylanders out at the store, he is very popular with young boys. I babysit, and know young boys can be rough on their toys. So if you don't want him to get broken, make sure your children know to be especially careful with him and his hanging parts.
This was a great three pack! I actually only own one of each element, and bought this pack because I didn't have these elements. It is a great set overall. I highly recommend it for boys.
