Frozen in our world. Alive in theirs.
Thousands of years ago, the Skylanders Giants fought epic battles in Skylands, but were banished to Earth. Now Kaos is back and with a new threat looming, it’s time to bring them back to join forces with the Skylanders. Only you can put them into the Portal of Power® to unleash their strength in the ultimate battle to save Skylands.
Are you ready to face Kaos?
- Starter Pack includes: Video Game, Portal of Power, 3- Skylanders Figures, Character Collection Poster, 3-Sticker Sheets with Secret Codes and 3-Trading Cards
- Bring the Skylanders Giants back from banishment to join the Skylanders once again in this Starter Pack
- Unleash the power of the Skylanders Giants with the Portal of Power®
Wii vs. Wii U:The Wii and WiiU use the same portal. They are completely compatible in every way except for the software. The Wii software will work on the WiiU (though the game won't be in HD if they play with Wii software), but the Wii U software will not work on the Wii. Toys will work on both platforms.

But he would see the Skylanders commercials and try to tell me about it but to tell you the truth, the "collect them all" aspect, kind of scared the heck out of me because they are not exactly cheap.
But through a lot of cajoling, it was time for my son to give "Skylanders Giants Starter Kit" a try and he absolutely loves it!
Let's take a look on what the Starter Kit is all about!
I. INSIDE THE BOX
- Video Game
- Jet-Vac (Air)
- Cynder (Undead Series 2)
- Tree Rex (Life)
- Cards for each character and stickers with codes
II. WHAT IS SKYLANDERS?
Sylanders are legendary heroes and the champions in the world of Skylands. Their mission is to protect the Skylands and its magical Core of Light.
Each Skylander has a unique elemental ability...Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Life, Undead, Magic and Tech. And each has their positives and weaknesses. So, Fire is weak against Water, Earth is weak against Air, etc. So, it's good to alternate which Skylander to use in battle.Read more ›
The initial offering of the game has been released in two versions:
(1) Skylanders Giants Starter Kit: This includes the game, a portal of power (not necessary to re-purchase, your portal from the original Skylanders works here as well), one new Giant figure Tree Rex (a life element), one regular size new figure Jet Vac (an air element), and one reposed figure Cynder (a death element). There is also the new character poster, the trading cards for the new figures, and some stickers.Read more ›
We bought the starter kit because the sales reps at 2 different Gamestops told us the old wireless portal had compatibility issues with the new game and figures. One guy said the Lightcore figures would not illuminate and the other guy affirmed it and added that you cannot play a legacy Skylander figure and a new giant on the old portal. I did some basic research without finding confirmation of this and figured for the small price difference and extra characters, I'd try the new Starter Kit. We currently own around 8 or 9 legacy figures and the old portal.
The Gamestop reps were wrong. I have tried both the new, wired portal, and the old, wireless portal. THERE ARE NO NEGATIVE DIFFERENCES IN NEW GAMEPLAY PERFORMANCE WITH THE OLD PORTAL AND THE NEW GAME. The Gamestop guys were wrong! The new portal, however, is hard-wired to the game system and uses no batteries vs the original which is wirelessly connected and requires 3 AAA batteries. Also the new portal stays illuminated always, even with the Wii turned off as well as the Lightcore character. The old portal seems to have more solid build quality and better detail too. Finally we had many problems switching characters during game play with the new, wired portal and we would get an alert to contact Activision for support. The old portal is not doing this.
Bottom line: If you have the legacy game, characters and portal buy the Portal Owners game, regardless of what the game store rep tells you, unless you want the added characters Jet-Vac and Cynder. Jet-Vac is pretty cool though! (2 extra characters= $15, neither is a Lightcore.) Please post questions below and I will do my best to answer> :)

This game is so much fun for my five year old. It's easy enough for him to play without help and he loves the different characters.Published 1 month ago by Joey
My son was happy to add this to his Skylanders collection. Playing with the wii, however, is harder than on the xbox360, which is what all our other skylanders games are for.Published 1 month ago by Devyn
