Includes: Skylanders SWAP Force Triple Character Pack (Hyper Beam Prism Break, Horn Blast Whirlwind, Rip Tide), Trading Card, and Sticker Sheet
These Skylanders SWAP Force character's require the Portal of Power (included in the SWAP Force Starter Pack) to be used in-game.
Skylanders Swap Force Triple Pack Hyper Beam Prism Break, Horn Blast Whirlwind & Rip Tide is an extension to swap Skylanders Force, the pack also includes 3 figures and 3 trading cards. Each Skylander has their own unique powers and abilities to enhance the gaming experience and save Skylands. Rip Tide was known far and wide as one of the best fighters in the Aqua Skylands. He mastered a variety of water technologies and astonished tournament visitors with its ability to adapt to the fighting style of each opponent.
These characters are all great. Buying in the triple pack saves several bucks too. Spyro is his series 3 incarnation, Chill is her Series 2 (She wasn't in the first game) and Zoo Lou is an all new Series 1 character. You can get a black and gold legendary Zoo Lou at Toys R Us, but he has one of the most unique color palettes in a Skylanders character so I highly recommend the White, brown and green normal edition.
Note: These are not Swap characters. There seems to be a lot of confusion on the part of parents buying for their kids. The Swap characters are sold either single or now in double packs. They are 15.99 each single and 29$ in the two pack. Those are the characters that you can mix and match tops and bottoms with. All characters from all games work in the Swap-Force game, but not all characters are Swap-characters. There is an icon on the packaging to denote whether the character is a Series 1, 2 or 3, whether it's lightcore or swappable. And just because...
All those looking to purchase these kits, understand that Swap Force is the third generation of this franchise. Just like Giants before, the Swap Force figures are the special figures while the original skylanders are reimagined with new appearances, a higher level cap, and different abilities. No, these particular figures do not swap, but if you do the research before you buy you will find that Activision has released multiple swap force characters that will make your children very happy and keep them entertained. Just look for the " swap" logo on the front of the box, it is similar to the lightcore image and is usually found in the center of the package just below the window to view the character. Swap force is not " deceptive marketing," it is Activision hoping that the public will research and understand their purchases before making them.
Skylanders, while expensive, are great for use as bribes-- and the three-pack is a more affordable way of buying them than buying one at a time. My kids think the names are hilarious-- especially Lava Barf Eruptor-- and now our toddler has a new nickname-- so the toys have been fun for the whole family. They of course are fun for the older two when they put them on the "portal of power" and magically see the figure appear in the Skylanders video game-- but the figures have also been a huge hit even when the TV is turned off. My two older kids like to line them up and stage pretend fights. They figures are pretty sturdy and so far, after more than 6 months of hard play, no pieces have broken off and they all still look like new (and work great with the game, too).
