3.0 out of 5 stars Important note on Lightcore reissues, December 3, 2012
By 
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Skylanders Giants: Lightcore Prism Break Character (Accessory)
When choosing which characters to purchase things are bit more complicated this time around. Many of the original characters are being reissued as part of the new Skylanders Giants universe; Prism Break being one of them. The NON-lightcore re-issued characters have a couple of nice features (1) the ability to switch upgrade paths and (2) Wowpow - a new ability not present in the first Skylanders game. The lightcore re-issued characters like LC Prism Break, LC Eruptor, and LC Drobot inexplicably do not get either of these new features. Instead they get a "smart bomb" effect which triggers upon entering the game. They do look cool (Prism Break looking the best), glowing on the portal, but are imo inferior to other reissued characters. From a glow effect perspective, Prism Break looks great with both of his raised crystals aglow. Whereas the glow effect of LC Eruptor and LC Drobot is rather underwhelming.

Note: The new characters (i.e. not reissued like Jet Vac or Pop Fizz) do not have Wowpows or switchable upgrade paths, so the lightcore versions of the new characters are not lacking any features of their non-lightcore counterparts and also enjoy the benefit of the "smart bomb" effect.

I Agree with you. I did not buy my son any lightcores because they lack those 2 abilities. While we have seen prism break light up in stores he just doesn't want to waste his money or my money on them.
