As much as I enjoy the actual game, this is what I hate about Skylanders.  I already own 3 different Spyro Figurines and 3 different Stealth Elfs.  I'd be much more interested in this if they took out ONE of those duplicates and added another unique figurine.

Lord knows if my wife heard about this, we'd be rushing to Gamestop asking to switch our preorder from the standard edition to this.

You should have at least four Spyro figures by now.  You're doing it wrong. :D

Actually, you're right.  Three from Spyro's adventure (Regular, Dark, Legendary), and one from Giants (Regular).

That's depressing.

Okay - so long as you're on board. :D

Pre-ordered mine yesterday.  Hate GameStop and Hate Pre-Ordering, but whacha gonna do?  Got me by the balls on this one, they do. :D

My wife found out from an email Gamestop sent out this week, so now i'm on the lamb for the Dark Edition.


Happy wife, happy life, I guess.

lol.  Well, at least she found out about it *now*, instead of after it was released and sold out. ;)

LOL, no kidding.  She was completely miserable when she found out Gamestop was selling a limited version Polar Whirlwind and we missed out on it. 


I really like playing the game more than anything.  While she likes it too, what she REALLY loves is completing her collection.

I think I have an extra one of those...

Nope, it's a Jade Flashwing...

Yeah, we have Jade Flashwing.  My wife's favorite color is green  ;D .


No worries, I wasn't looking to find one.  Just commenting how coveted these things get!
