WOST APPEARING LIGHTCORE FIGURE AVAILABLE! WAIT FOR SERIES 2 VERSION,
This review is from: Skylanders Giants: Lightcore Drobot Character (Accessory)
Drobot is a great character to play with. He flys eventually, and can shoot lasers from his eyes. His attack has more of a wide ranged span that can wipe out alot of enemies. If have purchased Skylander's Spyro's Adventure and played it with Drobot in the past there isn't a whole lot different from this one. But if you are buying the GIANTS version of the reposes for the ability to switch upgrade paths back and forth.. DON'T BUY THIS ONE!! Only the reposes, or Series 2 figures of the original game characters have that ability. LIGHTCORES CAN'T SWITCH UPGRADE PATHS! ONCE YOU MAKE A CHOICE YOU HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT OR RESET THE FIGURE AND LOOSE ALL THE GAME PLAYING EXPERIENCE ON IT.
Each element has one Lightcore figure available and Drobot is from the TECH element. All lightcore figures "Light up" somewhere.. Prisim Break is the best I've seen yet and his crystals glow green when put on the portal. I now have Jet Vac and Shroomboom in Lightcore also. Jet Vac looks pretty cool too. He lights up with a blue dot on his chest plate and his air gun lights up blue in a tunneling effect. Shroomboom's eye lights up a little bit, but his green transparent mushroom at his side lights up brighter in green than his eye does. Drobot is the biggest DISAPPOINTMENT when it comes to a Lightcore figure! He has a small gold round circle on his back that lights up...That's it..No Glowing Eyes..Nothing! You can't even see his "special light up ability" from a distance while playing. Lightcore figures have a special ability that the Series 2 versions don't have..they wipe out close surrounding targets, for about 1 second, when initially put on the portal. That is what you will have with this figure which retails for $2.00 more than the Series 2 version that will be coming soon. There will be a Series 2 Drobot released during another wave that will have a slightly different pose and not be Lightcore. This repose will have the ability to switch between upgrade paths (Master Blaster or Clockwork Dragon) at any time throughout the game. This figure will also have the "Wow Pow" upgrade called "Supreme Bladegear" (it combines bladegears into one controllable super bladegear) available that this Lightcore version doesn't have.
If you are on a budget, save your $2.00 difference for the Series 2 Drobot or buy the Spyro's version on sale! Otherwise..Here is a speck of light to add to your collection that can only be seen when looking directly down on it.
