I'm pretty much getting the 3DS version if I have a 3DS by then (probably will). I much rather trust Vicarious Visions over Toys For Bob. Plus, Dark Spyro makes it all worth it.

So dark Spyro is the ONLY exclusive guy, right? The rest can be bought individually? Please say yes...

Whoa! Dark Spyro!
I think the individual collecting of the figures is stupid and they're probably gonna cost and arm and a leg to collect all of them....curse them.

It's much cheaper to buy the figures in packs of 3 than it is individually so I don't see why anyone would bother. Unless some figures aren't included in any of the packs of 3 and can only be bought on their own then there's no other reason to buy them. There's no point in me buying, for example, Flameslinger on his own when I could get Flamslinger, Stump Smash and Drobot for cheaper than buying each individually.

Activision, you defy logic.

Activision always defied logic.

That's how multipacks work. They make more per character from the individuals but sell more overall with the larger packs.

From the consumer point of view you spend less if you just want one specific character or you save money if you want all three. It's a perfectly normal marketing strategy.

I know, I understand that. But we're talking about Activision here. Activision who will penny and dime the **** out of people if they can. Any other business and I'd understand.

Maybe they're finally learning something?

Just like how at E3 they didn't make it all about MW3. They also gave equal showing of Skylanders and Prototype 2.

Yes, I know, I think it's weird how you can think that the Skylanders dark Spyro looks like Cynder just by a shading of colour, lol. It's like me saying "Oh I'll paint myself purple, and from doing that I'll look like Spyro, I'll look just like him" smilie

Didn't we go over this already?

This is a spinoff game. In spinoff games, it's common for only the main character to be in the game.

It could also be considered a reboot, which also often leaves only the main character in the game.

No not really, but I'm just asking, why would you want to rename the normal Spyro as Dark Spyro, doesn't make much sense when one already has that name.
