Edition: Dragonfire Cannon - Chop Chop - Shroomboom
This is a fun add-on to Skylanders Giants, and includes a cool magic item and two enjoyable but not dominant characters, which I'll describe separately. First, though, a slight word of warning. While these three toys are compatible with the Skylanders Giants game, it does not include any actual "Giant" figures, just the three figures listed below. Also, unlike the Adventure Packs in the last game, this battle pack does not unlock a new playable level, just a new battle mode area for PVP fights.

1) Silver Cannon: This is a "magic item" that you can use in the game for approximately for approximately 45 seconds each time you play a level. (You will see a circle on screen winding down the time, and can remove and re-add the cannon until your time is up.) If you add it to the portal, a cannon will appear in game, follow your Skylanders around, and shoot blasts of flame at your enemies. It's helpful in the boss battles and is also just fun. Adding the cannon also unlocks a new PVP battle area. Note - another store has the exclusive right to sell the limited edition version of this pack, which comes with a gold cannon instead of silver. I'm not sure what the difference is, if any.

2) Shroomboom: This is a new life skylander. He's not the most powerful, but he's very cute, so we've been playing him a lot. He shoots explosive mushrooms with his slingshot, and can raise a defensive ring of mushrooms to slow down enemies. As you power him up, he gets more mushroom abilities, like a different explosive mushroom and the ability to launch himself at enemies. As I said, he doesn't dominate, but he's cute. After upgrading, Shroomboom can hold down his z-button to continually spam the screen with "paratrooper" explosive mushrooms, which is different and actually sort of effective, assuming you can still see him well enough to avoid the enemies while you wait for them to blow up.

Note: Shroomboom is not currently for sale as an individual figure, but he is on the list to be released in a "lightcore" version later, so if you're planning to collect the lightcore figures, you might want to wait.

3) Series 2 Chop Chop: This is the updated version of one of the undead figures from the original game. As in the original game, he's a sword and shield wielding beast. He does reasonable damage and his shield can protects him from most threats. He's basically the same as Series 1, except that he has access to a "Wow Pow" - in his case, an upgraded shield bash.

Lastly, although you can use Chop Chop in both Giants and Spiro's Adventure, the other two figures are only compatible with Giants. Enjoy!

I buy these Skylanders characters for my 6 year old daughter. She absolutely loves being able to play with them like action figures AND put them on screen to play in the game. If you have the portal pack then this is a good addition to the series. The only thing that is a draw back is that many new characters are coming in these three packs and include a new character and an old character. So if you are like me and have already bought all of the original series then it's kind of frustrating to spend the extra on a character you already have. The upside is that the new character does come with some upgrades of sorts and I have a second older daughter that also loves the game so having two saves an argument sometimes.

Received this before my delivery date. Wohoo! My son has been wanting these three for awhile now. He will be so excited when he gets them this Christmas. I know what he will be doing after all the presents are opened. Not to mention that there will be a couple more people wanting to play with them too. We have not had any issues with buying Skylanders products. They are really easy to use and priced very well. Great deal for three Skylanders Giants.

Not sure why but the box was open when we received it and an arm was broke off one of the characters. My son said it still worked but I am not so pleased with the condition.

Originally, we purchased this battle pack, simply for Chop-Chop, but since opening and playing with it, we have enjoyed all three pieces.

Shroom boom is pretty cool, with his "walls" to stand behind as he attacks.

The battle cannon is useful in long battles, or with bigger, more powerful characters that could take you out quickly, otherwise.

Chop-Chop is my fav though. I played with my niece's first, and then started looking for one of my own, and Amazon had this pack on sale, so we bought it! I enjoy using his attacks, and he looks fabulous in the Showtime Hat. ;)

One of the three Skylanders didn't work. When my son entered the code, it said that the code had already been used. Assuming it was a returned/repacked item, sold as new. Very disappointing!

My son at 15 still loves these collectables. His 5 year old sister and him play with them with equal enjoyment. They also arrived faster than expected. Ordered them Late Saturday and they arrived Monday. Thanks Amazon

When I saw the price for this at $14.99 I knew I just had to get it. My son had none of these figures and for this price it was a steal. These normally are $25 at walmart, target and toys r us. If you like me are trying to get every skylander for your son or daughter dont think twice about ordering from here on this item. Of course these guys aren't the strongest compared to the Giants but my son loved them when he opened the box.

Just a note- if like me you don't have a lot of experience with Skylanders and perhaps are looking for a character to help your kid unlock the "GIANT" chests in Skylanders Swapforce, note this: these guys won't do it! You need an actual /giant/ character (like, say "Thumpback" to do that.

However, the battlepack addition of the cannon (which can be used in arenas) is nice and was very welcome by my young gamer.

The younger kids love this game and cannot get enough of swapping the players to make the game more interesting. Each character has a different skill/power and all of the them are helpful to get through the game.
