Awesome product but beware of scalpers,
Great addition to the game. You get a new Skylander for your collection, an extra level and two magic items. Really fun to play with your kids or by yourself.
Please, don't give in to these insane prices. Do not pay more than 19.99 for this or any other adventure pack out there. I went to buy it today at my local Wal Mart and the guy that got to the rack before me grabbed the last four because they are going for more than $50 online. I drove down two miles and bought it at Target for $20. So be patient and let these scalpers sit on their stock. As a parent of three I ask you to help stop the abuse and the greed. :)

I plan on waiting until it is back in stock. If scalpers want to buy one fine, but to buy all of them to sell is just stupid. I don't like spending money like that in hopes of getting it back or more money in return. Update- About a couple days after I wrote this I found the Empire of Ice pack at ToysRUs. I would rather find it at Walmart because it is cheaper but it is better than paying the price on here. My advice would be to call places out of your area, and not close to the city. Where I live they are always sold out unless I drive twenty four miles away.

Retailers are not the ones bumping their prices. They continue to sell at or around $20. The problem is with individuals like the reviewer noted. What a JERK!!!

I work from home, and my 5 year old son likes to jump in my lap and look on the computer for skylanders. I was more tempted to pay $85 for this product, than to say "no" to him. Luckily, my husband ran by a GameStop today during lunch, and found two Empire of Ice Adventure Packs. These will go in my 5 and 12 year old sons Easter Baskets. I hope other children have the opportunity to enjoy their games without being taken advantage of by selfish people who are only looking to make a "buck".
Please don't pay these prices, you can still find this product on shelves.

Car dealers provide a service that we can't get on our own.. All scalpers do is buy the same stuff anyone else can get and sell it back to us.

After many weeks of looking, my BF found Pirate Seas and Empire of Ice at Wal-Mart for $19.97. They weren't on the shelf. They were in a shopping cart full of Skylanders sets that an employee was taking to the shelf. We joked that he should have grabbed the whole cart. Then we could have turned around and sold the whole lot on line... at a reasonable cost... thereby forcing others to lower their prices.

Kudos to you. That's a decent idea, but what people want is for the Skylanders to be available in stores. It isn't so bad now, just with rare ones.

Thanks for making this point. I can easily see my mother buying this for my kids for some astronomical price being none the wiser.
