Good value for the 3-packs
on November 14, 2011
Since it seems like Amazon just puts all the reviews for all of the 3-packs together, I'll say that, in general, any of the 3-packs are worth the price since you're really only paying about $6.67 for each figure (as opposed to shelling out $7.99 for each separately).
Each character in the game has their own element, which are needed for unlocking restricted bonus areas (which usually contains additional coins and hats), but aren't required to complete the game. In total, there are eight different elements: magic, earth, life, undead, fire, air, water, and tech. If you only own ANY of the starter pack (which includes the game and the "Portal of Power"), then you already have three of the elements covered: Spyro (magic), Trigger Happy (tech), and Gill Grunt (water).
Now, at the time of this writing, only 3 packs are available (I can only assume more will come in the future). The three packs are:
Drobot (tech), Flameslinger (fire), and Stump Smash (life)
Eruptor (fire), Chop Chop (undead), and Bash (earth)
Prism Break (earth), Boomer (tech), and Voodood (magic)
So if you're looking to cover each one of the elements (or want to buy the bare minimum to keep your kid happy and not tear your wallet a new one), the best choice is to go with the Eruptor, Chop Chop, and Bash pack. Then you can purchase the last two elements (life and air) separately.
