Is it me or does Dino-Rang have a longer tail?

Elites looks much better this year, should have gone with this idea with the first generation as well.
Still can't get how there can be so much "elites" around, though.

Yeah i don't get why they didn't at lest put the stickers in there....blasted Activision. But the good thing is i still can make the cards using a little math...from the standard figures once i max them up.

I'm not so upset about the lack of cards/stickers this year, I just think it is an incredibly stupid move on their part. Those things cost like nothing for them to include on top of SuperChargers being more expensive yet not much larger than standard figures.

They are already dealing with tepid reception this year and early price cuts, and are probably really biting their nails to see how the holidays turn out. Not exactly when you want the appearance of cutting corners. They are the premium, older, standby games to life franchise, and Activision has tons of money - you don't want to be the second class citizen in a pretty full market.

Absolutely agree.
I frankly hope the cards' lack is tied to the SuperChargers' line and is not a pathetic way to encourage us buying Battlecast cards.
Both can cohexsist since the formers are simple cards with no augmented reality features.

Activision (and the devs of course) should always try to do their best to compliment long time collectors and instead they cut content and corners everywhere.
Traps have been nerfed, Magic Items are simple decorations, cards are no more (and in case of the Elites stickers are gone as well), reused Skylanders, tons of cheap variants...

SuperChargers is indeed a great game but its toys aspect is downright disappointing, almost insulting.

They missed a fantastic opportunity by not giving you a corresponding Battlecast card with each figure this year. It could have taken the place of previous cards and have the effect of giving people more encouragement towards trying Battlecast. As it is I'm sort of indifferent towards it, but if I had a bunch of cards from buying figures I would be more encouraged to give it a shot - and potentially buy other cards.

Activision just has always had a problem realizing where the line is drawn. They will drive a franchise in the ground rather than ease up in areas to secure long term viability. I blame it on the whole short term profits mentality of investing these days. Executive boards will always go with whatever does better short term, mainly because they are all paid in stock options - and Wall St. wants decisions made on what is best right now, not in a year or two.

Hmmm, the more I look at Dino-Rang, the more I want him. I'm not sure, I would rather have Eon's Elite Scorp, but I don't know if that's even a realistic thought. Should I get him or not?

#17 Posted: 19:59:26 26/10/2015
I think the battlecast card idea was what they were gonna do too . It would've made perfect sense and have been a cool new feature.

They really needed to bring back the idea that skylanders could be played anything anywhere .
Like back in Giants days with the online game and the battlegrounds app etc.

But I guess battlecast wasn't ready in time. Or they decided not too.


Also it would've been great to rig up some method to be able to preview each character in store by the battlecast technology on your phone .

I've chosen to collect smilie, smilie, smilie and smilie from this year's Eon's Elite line-up, but I'm not sure about smilie or smilie yet. If it turns out that there is a pair of Air and Fire Elite ( smilie and smilie, for example), then I'd certainly give some thought towards collecting each of them. Otherwise, I'd be perfectly happy with Series 1 smilie.

Also...has anyone else noticed that the boomerangs Elite smilie is wielding are triple-bladed?! smilie

To me the whole cards/sticker question is important for a reason.
It's not like I use cards that much, I simply organize them inside a book.

It's the whole fact they are making us pay more for less (at least in new character's cases; Elites are something more than regular Skylanders).

Now it regards cards but what if one day they will starts taking away other features, like stickers for all the characters or something even more important...?
If they did it for cards we cannot exclude future corner cuts.

I don't want something more but I pretend the usual content.
They provided it for 4 game straights, what's different this year when they would have had to make only 20 new cards...?

Which means it isn't going to be happening. I'm not sure why people think it will, there is precedent for them not giving all elements equal treatment - we only got 5 elements with reposes last year.

Not agreed. They will play like the S1 characters, that I can switch paths now thanks to Portal Master upgrade in SC. OP? Who cares. I have an army of backups on Nightmare walkthroughs, and there's only the last level that you really need them. I'll use Trap Team's elites...no need to collect them now if they're just going to take away what I've become accustomed in getting.

No cards was really bad...now nothing? They crossed the line that I just drew. I'm disappointed, but gotta vote with my dollars on this one. And since they pulled this, I'll make sure I enforce my variant rule only on characters (I previously was going to get all variants this round).

I agree. Why are people getting so worked up and quiting over CARDS. They were cool but with no use and there being a upcoming SKYLANDERS card game with cards that look better than the normal ones I wouldn't mind if they were gone. Besides a lot of my Preowned Skylanders don't have cards anyways.

Honestly, if it wasn't for the small possibility that I might want to sell some Skylanders in the future, I would have given my cards and stickers away for my Mum's treasure box by now (she's a primary school teacher, so I give her any computer game and cartoon related freebies I don't want to her to hand out as prizes). Unfortunately, there may be a lot of people who feel the same way I do - the vast majority of Skylanders players don't frequent fansites like DS. I do think it's a pity that those that really like the cards now have to wait and buy a separate battlecast game, but in regards to me, owning cards? I don't mind either way.

Though I am much more bothered by the lack of air and fire elites. Not because I want there to be an even spread, but because I really like Sunburn and was looking forward to him being elite-ified : (

(ah well, now I can hope for a SC-style reposing instead - 'polo could do with an improved moveset)

Easy answer for your question (at least from my point of view):
it's not because of the cards themselves.

It's because they took away content in some form.
A content which has been there since the first game.

This year is cards.
But... Next year...?

Cards and stickers. Proud of it. Not everyone feel like you and not everyone feels like me, but as Aretha said-- R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Hey, next year, they'll just send out RFID chips with a pic of the character on the button of the chip. What's the big deal? You can still play as your character. It's not unfathomable that someone would get irritated that they're including less in a package and charging more for it. Not to mention I've gotten a lot of enjoyment with the additional card/sticker content. Now, I might as well light a match to it because I can't use it as a reference to my collection. It's clear they want me to pony up for the Batttlecast cards to play a game I could have done with the cards we got with our collection for the last four entries. I will not.

Yep, I'm saying it: After 4 games of being given cards and stickers, I feel entitled to it. If they were reducing the cost of figures by 10%, I wouldn't even be commenting about it. And I won't be paying any more than $14.95 for any figure....any price increase and I'll simply drop it from my buy list. They've effectively communicated the "top end" of these figures to me, Elites aside. Elites was worth it with the complete package...trying to remove stuff and try and charge last game Elites prices? Not flying with me.
