Only get this if you don't have regular eye brawl,
= Fun:As other reviewers have mentioned this character does not show up in the game as a pumpkin head eye brawl, it just shows up as regular eye brawl. This is because they decided to come out with the figure after the game was made and the game would need special data in order to make it show up as a pumpkin head eye brawl. Hopefully he shows up in Swap Force as Pumpkin eye brawl, but I do not know if that will happen. I would be skeptical of any other special edition skylanders for further releases, they might just show up in the game as their regular characters. Therefore I wouldn't get this figure unless you don't have regular eye brawl. I do not have him so I didn't mind paying for the pumpkin version. Also the packaging is not special it is just regular eye brawl packaging. The game doesn't come with a special code or card either, its all just regular eye brawl, except for the figure. The figure does look great though. I think if the packaging is regular and the figure is special, the figure won't show up as its special version in the game.

You are correct in regards to the packaging. The character will appear in-game as it does on the package. If the figure differs from the picture on the package, it is generally referred to as a "chase variant". Chase variants, such as the alternate colored figures distributed at conventions, are sought after for their limited availability.

Agree with this review. I didn't have a regular Eye Brawl, and wasn't planning on getting one until the purple variant and then this came out. I bought the pumpkin version and am totally happy.

If he's different in Swap Force I'll post it. I got this simply as a collectors item... maybe they'll fix the in-game appearance issue with a future patch.
