Dark Starter Pack Announced

#1 Posted: 07:52:30 13/08/2013 | Topic Creator
A special $100 edition of the Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack has been announced, the Dark Edition Starter Pack will be exclusive to GameStop and feature five Dark versions of some Skylanders.

[User Posted Image]

The main attraction is the five dark Skylanders: Dark Wash Buckler, Dark Blast Zone, Dark Ninja Stealth Elf, Dark Mega Ram Spyro, and Dark Slobber Tooth. And along with all the usual stickers and cards you'll get a special poster featuring all of the characters from all three games.

Lost Islands this week sees the introduction of the first two Sidekicks, Trigger Snappy and Whisper Elf. They behave just like the other Skylanders but they can tackle the new Chompy Pods when they're fresh, other Skylanders must wait for it to empty. The other six Sidekicks are likely to be rolled out slowly like they've been doing with the variants. Super Tuesday this week has a double gold bonus.

It most likely will be in UK as it was first spotted available for preorder on a UK website and the price was £69.95, check out the Swap force forum

I'll probably be getting this for the Wii U shortly after I get the normal starter pack for the Wii U if I actually like the game enough.

I preordered the Wii version today at my local EB Games. I couldn't pass up five Dark Skylanders and a free smilie!

By the way, the article in the link seems to imply that there will be more Dark Skylanders than just the five included in the Dark Edition Starter Pack. I smell a sub-series akin to the Legendary Skylanders in the air... smilie

@Sesshomaru75 Unfortunately, SWAP Force Dark Edition is only available on PS3, 360 and Wii.

Probably. I'd rather save the $25 for the Nitro or Legendary double packs, but I have a sibling who wants it badly, hopefully he'll pay the difference.

I wouldn't really mind having more than one copy of the game to be honest. I'm not a huge Skylanders fan (I actually don't consider myself a fan at all at the moment), but I was really disappointed from what I saw in Giants. Swap Force, on the other hand, seems like it may be better and more worth my money. If I like the game, then I will probably buy the Dark Edition later on just for the figures and probably just give the extra copy of the game to my brother or something.

I also prefer the original characters over the Dark ones, but I still think they look cool.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. There isn't a Wii U version in EB Games Australia's systems so I assumed there wasn't a Wii U version at all. I guess you can get one after all. smilie

Probably won't be that expensive - depends who's got it. All the clues are pointing to GAME, and whilst they're currently the most expensive (at £65 for the PS3, 360 and Wii U versions and £53 for the Wii version) I could see them putting an extra £20 on the price, maybe £15 if we're lucky.

So either £80-85.

I don't have the iOS Bluetooth portal. If I want to add the sidekicks from last year, and can't find the codes, is their another way to get them?

If I use the Wii Portal on a PC and go to the website, will it give me the code for a sidekick like it does for a regular character?

This is getting bit overboard. They haven't released the game and yet they're already producing milion of variants. Great policy :/

I've collected nearly all Giants and all SSA figures, but it seems I will limit myself to the standard ones from Swap Force and maybe very few variants. Especially, since except of color and name, they are exactly the same as normal colors.

I guess fans have spoiled Activision too much. Since they've earned so much cash from Skyladners, they've completly lost a common sense and don't even pretends to hide the fact, that they want to suck us from all the money we have.

Hi ShadowSerpent! I watch your YT channel! It's epic!

Probably not gonna get the Dark one, as I've already ordered the regular. Maybe Dark Ninja, Dark Slob and Dark Mega Ram will be re-released, as well as the Dark Swap Forcers. I hope so, at least.

Dark Slobbertooth's the worst in my opinion, but he looks better than his normal form.

Yep. And the runes from the old portal are also on it (they're on the normal new portal as well, but a lot harder to notice).

Ikr? Credit to ZapNorris for finding an image of the starter big enough to make a decent cropping of the portal.
