Ugh... with the different designs, I might just have to stick with the d20 design they've been showing off the Fire crystal with.

Not only that, the crystal inside is also different. Life in the Dark Starter has Dark's containment AND Undead's crystal shape.

What do we even call those aside from the D20 and pyramid designs?

Though it could still a mistake. The designs are all made in theme of the element(Air has wings, Undead has claws,etc.) Why Life would have Dark's rock rune thingies when it's supposed to look like an acorn?

I just hope one of the designs is beta, so there will be not more than one.

But, if it has, at least someone will be happy here... Activision's banks.

Those crystals are pretty reminiscent to Bejeweled, given that they each are different colors and shapes.

Some could be a mistake. They might still be working on a design for tech or something.

I still think the life one in the Dark Starter is a placeholder. They sound like they've learned from Trap Team; plus, you can tell it takes assets of other crystals, dark and undead, and recolors them. If they made different combos with the tubes AND the crystals being different, there could even be hundreds of combos, which not even the traps decided to tackle.

I'll be struggling to get even one crystal per element. That's £100, after all. If there are multiple designs, I'll just pick my favourites! smilie

#19 Posted: 17:51:43 03/06/2016
Hmm, to be fair, the Fire and Tech crystals have the same shells in that picture, as do the Earth and Water ones. Not to mention the Dark crystal seems to have a very earthy texture to its shell.

Said this on the discussion but I'll say it again.

I think multiple designs are good, if you have 2 crystals of the same element you'd be able to determine the Imaginators
Gentleman Brawl Yellow Sparx Gems: 1050
#21 Posted: 17:57:59 03/06/2016
Makes sense I guess since if you want to buy another one to make a new character with the same element, you can tell them apart easier.

Still not big on the price though...

The design aesthetics of each element in the 1st image (minus tech and water) suggests that there wouldn't be different combinations. Look at the setting for tech, it doesn't match the body design. Look at the setting for fire, it goes really well with the body design.
Drek95 Emerald Sparx Gems: 4741
#23 Posted: 19:49:46 03/06/2016
Just saw it on the italian Facebook page.

I hope some of these designs aren't final, but even if they do decide to create multiple tubes I'm still convinced the crystals are unique for each Element.

I really like how they look, though!
Air, Fire, Life, Magic and Undead seem perfect, while Light should probably be swapped with Dark.
Tech is most likely a placeholder and so is either Water or Earth.
The crystals themselves are sweet.

Luckily, were only supposed to get 1 per element, so it looks like the one in the Dark Starter Pack was a prototype mold or something idk...

Or Swap-Force 2.0 without dual-elements, with everything being customizable and not tied to figures.

Oh, and don't forget that Trap Team is Giants 2.0 with crystal weapons and Giants is just an expansion pack to Spyro's Adventure...

I see where you're coming from, but really, we could compare any of the games and it ultimately doesn't matter, because they're all different in their own way.

I don't think any are placeholders. Looks like we're getting multiple designs fir each element like traps, which isn't bad thing really.

Let's just hope they learned from trap team and produce enough for everyone. Or at least make combo packs with a crystal and a sensei too so it makes them a little more available.

#30 Posted: 23:33:45 04/06/2016
I have no problem with multiple designs. I resisted getting different types of traps just fine. But I feel for collectors if there are a lot of different ones.

Sorry for being slow I've only yesterday learned that the new game has been revealed. I am assuming that the character that you make is contained only in these crystals and that if you want to make a new Skylander you have to overwrite the first one? With traps the villians were keep in the prison in the academy so you could swap them in and out (when it wasn't glitching) using the same trap, you only needed one trap per element. But I assume here that there is nowhere to store your created Skylander other than in the crystal so if you want 2 different life characters you MUST have 2 different crystals is that right?
B-BOB358 Yellow Sparx Gems: 1029
#31 Posted: 23:40:08 04/06/2016
Yeah it's possible, we haven't seen the existence of a character Bank yet. I'm really hoping for it but I'm not completely optimistic as its a major selling point to really push crystal sales.

If so , having two of each crystal might be the way to go, so you can keep 1 of each element as your favourite new creation and leave the other one to experiment with new characters.

You need the crystal to enter the character editor to begin with,but keep in mind the game is in an earlier form than it looks, the logo wasn't even added to the menu yet. We still could get some cloud or ingame vault functionality to save creations.

An Imaginator storage system doesn't seem likely. Since the crystals are priced at $9.99, and are certainly cheaper to produce than actual Skylander figures, they'll want to push the sales of them to the best of their ability. A storage system would drastically reduce sales, and based on reports of SuperChargers underwhelming, they don't want a repeat of last year - rather, Imaginators looks like a means to make up for any losses from last year.
Drek95 Emerald Sparx Gems: 4741
#34 Posted: 01:41:15 05/06/2016
Let's stop and think for a second, though.
This would absolutely not be similar to traps in terms of actual utility.

I know they want to make lots of money but I seriously doubt they would force us to buy multiple very similar figures simply to create more characters without having to overwrite them on older ones.
I think I will personally end up creating more or less 10 Imaginators per Element, and that's just me.

I hardly doubt anyone would want to pay that much simply to create more characters.
I sure wouldn't, and would only end up being enormously disappointed.

If they do have multiple designs I hope it will be only to allow us to choose or favorite ones.
Would be crazy price-wise even as a whole: we already have 30 Gimmicklanders which will most likely sell a lot, and while 10€/$ are more than fine for, don't know, 10 or 20 Imaginators, 20€/$ for just two would be madness.

You can make thousands of characters with only the starter pack. You just can't have them all at once.

Yeah, I only wrote "at once" the first time because I didn't want to sound too repetitive.

What I mean is that I fully understand needing more crystals to experiment with different Elements and allowing us to bring one Imaginator with us; what I wouldn't understand is the absence of some storage for our characters.

But I'm frankly not worried: the Imaginite Vault and the fact they always specify "crystals function as both editors and a way to bring our characters with us" make me hopeful.

There is probably a limit to how many characters can be saved in the game. Perhaps the best way to save your character is by leaving them on the crystal, but if you only have 1 crystal you should be able to experiment without loosing your design.

You mean like how normal figures "also function as a way to bring our characters with us"?
That doesn't mean we're getting a way to store our customs.
At the very least, we have to consider the possibility that the vault is where the custom PARTS are stored and nothing more

I agree with Drek. I think there will be a vault where you can save multiple creations BUT you'll only be able to play as the one stored in your crystal. Similar to how villains worked in TT.

Yeah, from what I have understood Creation Crystals allow you to create and edit Imaginator and also as a way to physically take our creations to a friend's house (a cross between a trap and a regular figure, if you will).
Helps differentiating Imaginators from "official" Skylanders and seems like a logical solution to avoid creating blank generic characters molds which in my opinion would have reduced their uniqueness a lot.

What I'm expecting is an in-game storage of some kinda from which you can choose which Imaginator transfer in which Creation Crystal.
Again, traps mixed with normal Skylanders.
