Capitalizing on the extreme popularity of Skylanders variants, Gamestop is now offering bundle packs of different characters, enticing people with gold Skylanders to go with them. Not a bad thing to do, for it allows people to snag variants without worrying about employees snatching them up for a profit beforehand; However, these bundles can be pretty expensive themselves. Also, collectors are forced to buy figures they most-likely already have. If you haven’t jumped on the Skylanders bandwagon yet, these bundles may not be a bad alternative to getting pretty much every character in one fell swoop.
Look for these bundle packs on Gamestop.com:
Gold Chop Chop and Drill Sargent w/ Wham Shell, Warnado, Tower, and Others – 119.91 (Not a terrible deal, all things considered.)
All in all, that’s still more money than I’m willing to spend. Other than rarity, the variants aren’t any different from regular Skylanders in-game. I enjoy the game, and am only missing one character… but, I think 37 plus the upcoming 16 is more than enough for me. For those with more disposable income than me… more power to you! Now, if I could only get my WHAM-SHELL.
