Apologies if this has already been done elsewhere but I dd a quick search and couldn't find it, which surprised me due to the hype and demand for the game and figures.

I'll start the ball rolling, does anyone know what the treasure does in the pirate seas box?

The treasure chest is excellent we have used it so many times and got loads of coins from it to help the Skylanders to Upgrade

just pop it on the portal and then find it , open it (approx 250 coins inside)
then talk to a character and go back to it and you can open it again, then repeat as often as you like

easiest and quickest way of getting the funds to upgrade

We have played all the characters now including Warnado, Slam Bam, Clam Shell etc and Cynder (who i am most dissapointed with i was looking forward to Cynder but though it was very weak) and our favs so far are Drill sergeant and Camo

We have completed the game and have 87% so we have a way to go while we wait for the new adventure packs to be released

looks as if one may be out Mid Jan along with some of the Wave 3 Figs

Hi BethRwar, and welcome to the forums.
I found for my children (well ok, for me and the missus playing sometimes in the evening aswell) that tesco was the best bet. This is over Telford way in Shropshire.
My suggestion would be that if you are looking for some in particular to put a wanted ad on the forums and maybe someone may see it in the local shops and be able to send for cost+postage?

I personally am not interested in any personal gains from it and so may respond if I saw such a thing.

Other suggestions are smyths if you have one, or the smaller shops like PC world? Surprisingly enough PC world seems to get forgotten about for console games, but it does stock them. Curries and comet are also an option.

Either way, Good luck and hope you have some joy soon.


To continue the thread as it's meant
"what does the health thing do in the other multipack?" I think you put it on portal and then char's gain health, but i'm not sure?

Here is a very good guide of the Skylanders taken from
Code:
http://www.gamepeople.co.uk/collecting_wii_spyro-skylanders.htm
Each of the toy figures belongs to a particular grouping: Earth, Fire, Air, Life, Undead, Magic, Water and Tech. Owning all the characters in one of these groups gives you an extra bonus when you play. Also, the groupings define how the characters perform against each other in the versus mode and in the main campaign. Each group has special areas that only they can access.

Earth Characters: Terrafin Prsim Break Bash Legendary Bash Dino-rang Silver Dino-rang

Fire Characters: Ignitor Eruptor Silver Eruptor Flame Slinger Sunburn

Air Characters: Sonic Boom Lighten Rod Whirlwind Warnado

Water Characters: Gill Grunt Zap Slam Bam Wham Shell

Magic Characters: Spyro Dark Spyro Legendary Spyro Voodood Double Trouble Wrecking Ball

Tech Characters: Trigger Happy Legendary Trigger Happy Boomer Silver Boomer Drobot Drill Sergeant

Life Characters: Stealth Elf Stump Smash Zook Camo

Undead Characters: Chop Chop Legendary Chop Chop Ghost Roaster Hex Cynder

When choosing which toys to collect you need to balance the benefits from owning all of one sat against the being able to pick and choose from the different sets and access more of the special areas. Also, if you are going to be fighting against friends you may want a range of different character groups to select from to match up against their toys. For instance, fighting Fire with Water is more effective than fighting it with Tech.

As well as these groupings. the toys each have a set of starting characteristics that defines how they perform initially and how you can power them up and upgrade them in the videogame.

Firstly, they have a primary and secondary attack that defines both the style, range and effectiveness against different enemies. The primary and secondary attacks can sometimes be used in combination to increase the power or reach of a weapons. For example Prism Break can fire his primary Beam attack into the crystals he summons with his secondary Shard Summon attack to reflect it in more directions and increase its range.

Secondly, each toy has a particular set of upgrades. Again these provide additional attacks that can increase the range and power of their starting weapons. These will either offer a new ability or power up an existing one.

Finally each toy has a set of characteristic stats that define how they perform. These are upgraded as you work through the different levels but still determine how powerful they can become.

The in-game stats detail Max Health (Hit points), Speed (Movement), Armour (How Hard to hit), Critical Hit (Chance of doing extra damage), Elemental Power (Increase effect of elemental zone), Heroics (Challenges completed), Hero Level (Website progress).

The cards/web game stats are slightly different. These detail Attack (the strength of their weapons), Agility (how high they can jump and how fast they can move), Defense (how much damage their armour and body will absorb from an enemy attack), Luck (how quickly they recover from stun attacks), and is used in other non-skill based aspects of the game.

First Wave Skylanders (October 2011)

With the Skylanders figures not being released all together there are some that we still need to track down. A second wave of figures provides the following three characters:
 360/PS3/Wii Starter Pack Spyro, Gill Grunt and Trigger Happy
 3DS Starter Pack Stealth Elf, Dark Spyro and Ignitor
 Chop Chop
 Boomer
 Drobot
 Stump Smash
 Stealth Elf
 Sonic Boom
 Bash
 Zap
 Eruptor
 Flameslinger
 Voodood
 Prism Break
 Whirlwind (exclusive)
 Drill Sergeant (exclusive)
 Triple Pack A Drobot, Flameslinger Stump Smash
 Triple Pack B Prism Break, Boomer Voodood
 Triple Pack C Eruptor Chop Chop Bash
 Pirate Seas Pack Terrafin
 Darklight Crypt Pack Ghost Roaster

This still leaves a number of figures unreleased, and it looks like they will hit shelves in a third and fourth wave. With one of these in each Element it means that until they are more widely released it is very hard to get a full set -- which grants that all important extra stat boost.

Second Wave Skylanders (December 2011)

With the Skylanders figures not being released all together there are some that we still need to track down. A second wave of figures provides the following three characters:

 Dino-rang
 Hex
 Wrecking Ball
 Triple Pack D Stealth Elf Sonic Boom Wrecking Ball
 Triple Pack E Zap Hex Dino-Rang

This still leaves a number of figures unreleased, and it looks like they will hit shelves in a third and fourth wave. With one of these in each Element it means that until they are more widely released it is very hard to get a full set -- which grants that all important extra stat boost.

Third Wave Skylanders (January 2012)

The third wave of Skylander characters expands on both Single and Triple packs. The following figures have just appeared on Amazon and seem to be a good indication of which will be included in the third wave of figure releases. Although it has not been announced which of the remaining Skylanders will be included in the third wave, or indeed how many this wave will provide. It is likely that it will be another set of three, and be picked from the remaining unreleased characters:

 Double Trouble
 Cynder
 Triple Pack F: Whirl Wind Double Trouble Drill Sergeant
 Empire of Ice Pack Slam Bam

Fourth Wave Skylanders (Easter 2012)

The fourth wave of Skylander figures are rumoured to be as follows:

 Lightning Rod
 Zook
 Ignitor
 Dragon's Peak Pack Sun Burn
 Triple Pack G Cynder Lightning Rod Zook

Fifth Wave Skylanders (June 2012)

The fifth wave of Skylander figures are rumoured to be as follows:

 Warnado
 Camo
 Triple Pack H Ignitor Warnadi Camo

Sixth Wave Skylanders (Summer 2012)

The sixth wave of Skylander figures are rumoured to be as follows:

 Wham Shell

Legendary Skylanders

Legendary figures offer a different painting variation and increase stats. As well as being different colours to the standard Skylanders figures, they look and perform differently in the game itself. Along with the second wave figures these are also hard to find and can generate high prices second hand. Bash, Spyro and Chop-chop Legendary figures can be purchased via the Toys R' Us Triple Pack. Legendary Trigger Happy is the hardest to find and it has been said that he is to be given out through a special Toys 'R Us coupon when you spend $100 or more at Toys-R-Us. Legendary Skylander figures are currently:

 Legendary Bash
 Legendary Spyro
 Legendary Chop Chop
 Legendary Trigger Happy

Silver Skylanders Distributed in Secret

Silver figures are the most rare of all Skylanders toys. They are unlike the Legendary figures in that they have the same stats as their non-silver counterparts. They also look the same as standard figures when used in the game. The novelty, especially for collectors, is in their different physical appearance and packaging. Silver Skylanders are more sought after because of their rarity -- only being sent out randomly to retailers in limited numbers and found on shelves alongside standard Skylander figures. Because of this Silver Skylanders are the most expensive to buy second hand and have already generated five or six times their retail price.

 Silver Dino-rang
 Silver Boomer
 Silver Eruptor

Gold Skylanders Spotted in Stores

Gold figures join the Silver figures as very rare collectible version of the Skylanders toys. Again like the Silver figures the only difference with these characters is that they are painted a different colour. Unlike the Legendary figures (that coincidentally have gold trim) they have exactly the same stats as their nonmetallic counterparts.

 Gold Chop-Chop

Skylanders Adventure Packs DLC

Some Skylanders packs include special adventure packs. These provide not only exclusive figures but also completely new adventures to take your Skylanders on:

 Pirates Seas and Terrafin
 Darklight Crypt and Ghost Roaster
 Empire of Ice - Coming Soon
 Dragon's Peak - Coming Soon
