Skylanders is an awesome game. The figures are as fun to play with for my kids as the actual game!

But please do not pay more than retail for these figures. They will be in the stores again mid January 2012. I pre-ordered mine on Amazon and will get it between Jan 28 - Feb 2.

I love playing the game with my son. It's great for us to spend time together and I can't wait to get our Whirlwind!

You might have trouble finding them but perservere and you will be much better off. This is a great three pack but it can be found at Target for $19.99 you just have to keep at it. Same for the other figures, I can't see who would be stupid enough to buy these figures for what they are showing on here.

Don't buy preorders from high price scammers/re-sellers. This pack will be widely available in mid January. Otherwise, game has been fun. Just be sure to buy quickly when you can

These 3 skylanders are a great addition to any collection.

Whirlwind offers a cool figure, and has a powerful storm cloud attack in which enemies run into and get damaged by.

Double Trouble's voice can get on somebody's nerves, and his singing sounds absolutely horrible! But his attacks are strong. One attack throws a magic ball at enemies, and the other sets a mini tiki that is much like Whirlwind's cloud.

Drill Sergeant has an awesome figure and a cool technical in-game voice. His attacks center around his drills mainly.

A must have for any Skylanders fan! Whirlwind is one of my favorite characters! Double Trouble and Drill Bot are great too and are also must-have characters. These characters will play in any of the 3 Skylanders games (Spyro's Adventure, Giants, or Swapforce). When using the characters in different games they will keep all of their powers and gem values. This triple pack was originally $24.99 at stores and the individual characters are $9.99. Since this is a pack from the original game (Series 1) it should be clearanced out a bit.

You will need some characters to play skylanders spyro adventures. Might as well save some money and get a three pack of figures. Nothing special in this set but will allow you to play the game.

Great rpg games for my deserving 6 year young love! Our Skylander family, too, has grown along with our Ninjago family as amazon.com provides great sources for these 2 hot products. It truly is the convenience of avaialabilty which makes it worth the dime to buy these online. Thank you!

My rating is based on the game itself. The game is directed to kids, and my kids would give it 5 stars. They love this game. It's challenging for them, but not too hard. If I were rating this game for an adult, I'd probably give it between 3 or 4 stars. It's not a game I'd play on my own. But as I said, this game is geared for kids so I'm rating the game from that perspective; and for kids, this game is great.

I am surprised at how expensive the figures are becoming online. The cheapest way to get them is still to buy them at the store. The problem is that as soon as new figures are stocked, they are gone. I was talking to a Gamestop employee the other day and he said that they get a new shipment of figures every week, but they are usually gone the first day. I would suggest finding out when the new shipment is coming, assuming they know and are willing to tell you, and show up that day. You can also get lucky on eBay sometimes. You can also check the online sites for retail stores like ToysRUS. If they have figures in-stock, you'll be able purchase them for the retail price instead of the inflated price you see online.

Also, there is an online game that goes along with the Console game. Each figure comes with a code that you can enter online, which allows you to play with that figure in the online game. But parents should be aware that the online game is a multiplayer game. The first time I tried the online game just to see how it would be, I had some other player trying to "friend" me and talk to me. My likely it's just another kid, but you never know. I don't let my kids (ages 7 and 6) do the online game unless my wife or I are right there with them.

WHIRLWIND is of the Air element and funny looking initially; she runs like a horse and yet has these huge wings that she can't use till an upgrade later on. She shoots a rainbow out of her horn at her targets and slaps her wings to produce an electrified cloud to damage her foes. I have found her soul gem upgrade to be invaluable when playing with two people. There is usually food at a battle scene, but not always enough for two players. My son and I make sure that whoever has Whirlwind eats first because she can heal the other player by shooting her rainbows at them. She is also unique in that she can shoot at targets on higher ground than her or over a fence (her rainbows arch up and then come down) which is helpful in eliminating targets before they can get you in many situations.

DOUBLE TROUBLE is an odd sort of floating totem pole that says "OOOOOOOAHH" along with some other grunts and groans throughout the game. He belongs to the Magic elemental group along with Spyro etc. He spins his kooky green eyes as his energy beam (emitted from the top of his staff at a downward angle) continuously shoots (hold X on PS3) and locks onto his targets. I honestly was a little disappointed when I first started playing with him. Then eventually he got upgraded to having three cloned images that float around with him and explode which is sort of like Stealth Elf. I thought OK..sort of cool, but I'm not very impressed... then I got the magic bomb upgrade and it's a lot like a ground pound effect that wipes out all the nearby targets all the way around him. This upgrade makes him much more powerful in the boss battles. With his soul gem he can eventually float over water. I have played with him quite a bit...HIS POWER IS AWESOME.. eventually. IF you Press and Hold his beam (spinning in a circle is really cool) you will be amazed at how MUCH you can WIPE OUT!!

DRILL SEARGEANT is from the TECH element. He is an Arkeyan tank that has two arms that shoot torpedoes and has a bulldoze charge that can speed up his approach and attack on enemies. He is very slow at first unless he is in bulldoze mode (which is short lived) and extremely wide to maneuver. My 6yr old son really liked him immediately but I wasn't as thrilled. We now have ours upgraded to the point where he can shoot a beam from the top of his head. The next level appears as though he can become quite impressive when you finally get him upgraded to the point of the "choose your path" upgrades. The choices are to strengthen his drill rocket arms or to become the Ultimate bulldozer with a stronger beam and faster charge through mode. We will be choosing the latter. The soul gem fortifies his armor with Arkeyan tech which I imagine will make him quite a formidable foe.

SUMMARY:
Upgraded these are an interesting group that will give you one more element than what came with the original game pack; air, an ability to heal your partner, one figure that can shoot over things, and two figures that lock onto their enemies while shooting at them. We(my 6 yr old son and I)own all the figuers that have been released to date (March 20th, 2012) and this is a pretty powerful group to have and like all of them.

SKYLANDERS GIANTS IS SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE OCTOBER 21ST, 2012!
IF YOU COMMONLY HAVE TWO PLAYERS AT ONCE.. WHIRLWIND COULD BECOME INVALUABLE WITH HER ABILITY TO HEAL IN THE GIANTS GAME!
THE ORIGINAL SKYLANDER FIGURES WILL WORK IN THE GIANTS GAME THAT'S COMING SOON BUT THEY WON'T HAVE THE "WOW POW" EXTRA POWER THAT THE SERIES 2 FIGURES WILL HAVE. THE ORIGINAL FIGURES ALSO WON'T BE ABLE TO BE QUITE AS POWERFUL IN TOTAL LEVEL UP, UPGRADES AS THE SERIES 2 RE-POSES WILL BE EITHER.

I just purchased this at my local store for the $19.99 suggested retail. These are filtering in pretty regularly now 1-25-12, so don't pay anymore than list price. They had a whole shelf full of various skylanders. The game is great. My 7 year old son loves it, and we can both play together and enjoy it. I beat the levels 100% and he just plows through, but we do play 2 player a lot.
