Hey guys. Thinking about getting this for my son for Christmas, but I ws thinking of getting the Spyro's adventure starter pack. If I get that game, do they sell just the new disk for this one? I don't want to buy both starter packs and have two portals.
there's a "booster pack", with only the Game and the earth Giant creature for the people that already have the "portal" and some "small" creatures, but the price is just 10$ less than the starter for Giants (could be some lower prices in some shops) ; I was in the same position and watched on ebay as some people sell the elements split and got my PS3 game for about 40 instead of 60 for the game + portal + 1 giant + 2 "small"
Your best option depends on whether you are buying for PS3, Wii, or Xbox 360.
Once you get Spyro's Adventure you DO have a portal, *but* if you're buying for Wii or PS3 it is a battery operated one which means you will end up spending additional money.
The second game (Skylanders Giants) is $60 for the game + a copy of TreeRex, or it is $75 for Game + Portal + TreeRex + Jet-Vac + Cynder.
The characters are $10 a piece, so if you are getting the PS3 or Wii version and only have the battery operated portal, you're saving $5 off an additional character and lord knows how much on batteries.
If you're on 360 it's a tougher call and totally up to you. Gopd luck!
