Not sure if I should get the Starter or Portal owner kit.
Will really depend on what characters are included in the Starter kit and whether we already own them...

Does anyone know which ones will be included?
Would love to pre-order for my kids just to get this out of the way...

ToysRUs has a picture up of the actual packaging. The Starter Kit will have "Tree Rex" a new Life Skylander Giant, "Jet-Vac" a new Air Skylander, And "Cynder" a reposed old Undead Skylander. Portal Owners Pack Will Just Have "Tree Rex". Here's the links with pictures.

We have the wii Skylanders version and figures of the original game but now we also have an xbox 360. I want to preorder Giants but I can't decide if I should get the Wii Giants or the Xbox starter kit with portal. I think he'd have to "re-train" all his skylanders if we go the xbox route. Can anyone offer anyguidance on this? Thanks.

Should not have to retrain. Skylanders retain their abilities on the toy itself, not on the Xbox or Wii.

Does anyone know if two players can play at the same time on the Xbox 360 version?

Can Skylanders characters be used in the Giants portal? Can Giants characters be used in the original Skylanders portals?

The old characters can be used on Skylanders Giants but the new characters are not compatible with the original Skylanders game. The portal you put the characters on, can be used with either game.

Yes 2 player is an option.

Thanks Angsto. I bought the new Gamestop exclusive battlepack but only the chop chop character could be used on the old portal. Does that mean that the other two will only work on the new portal?
