Your Imaginators Buying Plans?

I have not seen a topic about this yet, so I thought I would crate one.

What are your buying plans for Skylanders: Imaginators? It's never too early to start planning. I have two plans, based on gameplay details:

1. If you are allowed to have multiple Imaginators in one crystal/store your Imaginators in-game:
  • Normal Wii U Starter Pack
  • All 20 Senseis
  • One Creation Crystal of each element

Estimated Price: $500.18 (Including Taxes)

2. If you are not allowed to have multiple Imaginators in one crystal/store your Imaginators in-game:
  • Normal Wii U Starter Pack
  • One new Sensei of each element
  • Two Creation Crystals of each element

Estimated Price: $447.53 (Including Taxes)

I do not plan on getting any villains (except for Luminous, if he is the light element villain) to save money.
Both alternatives are expensive, but option two is less, and I am liking the concept of creating characters, so I will most likely choose option two. I still have to wait to find out about certain details about the game before I make my final decision.

That is pretty much it for my buying plans. What are yours? Leave them in the comments below.

So far, my plans are:

  • Dark Starter
  • At least one crystal of each element, depending on how many ideas I have as time passes
  • At least one Sensei from each battle type and element (may make exception if I really like one)

Probably regular Xbox 360 starter pack.

The senseis/villains that I like.

And hopefully a few creation crystals.

I plan on getting everything this year, even variants and all molds of Creation Crystals. The only things I won't get are chase variants (unless I find them myself).

On day 1, I'm getting everything I can. Creation Crystals will be the priority here. I've learned my lesson with traps. I'll get the regular Wii U starter on Black Friday. If there's an awesome deal on it, I might get the XBox 360 Dark starter on Black Friday as well if I can find it. Otherwise, I'll wait till Christmas for that. I'll get the rest of the waves as they come.

1. If you are allowed to have multiple Imaginators in one Crystal/store your Imaginators in-game:

  • Regular PS4 Starter Pack
  • All 30 characters + Villains.
  • One Creation Crystal per Element. (The molds I like the most)

Estimated Price: 2108.6 (Including Taxes) I feel a bit humiliated... either that or I did the math wrong... haha...

2. If you are not allowed to have multiple Imaginators in one crystal/store your Imaginators in-game:

  • Regular PS4 Starter Pack
  • All 30 Characters + Villains
  • One Creation Crystal of Each Element, then doubles of Light, Dark, Magic, Water, Air, and Undead, the ones I like and want to make extra's of.

Estimated Price: 2168.54 (Including Taxes) EVEN WORSE...

@Luminous: You may have done the math wrong, unless you have some insane taxes.

All in USD (rounded up to whole dollars): 75? for the Starter + 15*(30-2) + 10*(10-1) = 75+15*28+10*9 = 75+420+90 = 585 (+60 if you go for the 6 doubles)

I hope to get at least most of the villains and a few Senseis.

I'll be thinking of characters beforehand and buying Crystals as I think of new stuff.

This year is gonna be kind to me. My girlfriend is buying the starter pack and I'm not buying any crystals. Just 1 sensei for each element/battle class. So $150 before sales or taxes.

XB1 starter, one of each crystal element and some of the Skylanders/Villains that I like such as Wolfgang. I might get more crystals if needed.

1 Starter
8 Senseis/Villains (assuming that gets me one of each element/class)
9 Crystals (one of each element)
Qcumber Yellow Sparx Gems: 1054
#17 Posted: 19:26:01 03/06/2016
IDK how much this'll cost, so if someone knows please tell me (I don't know much about the prices).

Normal Starter or Dark Starter - depends which costs less when combined with everything else

10 Senseis (including Starter Pack Senseis)

10 Crystals (including Star Pack Crystal/Crystals)

This way, I can unlock almost everything in the game Imaginators-wise (like attacks), although I might be more limited in some areas (like not being able to have as many Imaginators at the same time) than I would if I got everything.

I'd probably do something similar to how I handled Trap Team:

Get favorite Senseis/Villains at $10 or less (Core price) if they reach that price via sale. If the game requires one of each battle style/element, focus more on getting different battle styles/elements rather than full-on favorites.

If different battle styles/elements do something significant, keep an eye on prices of Senseis/Villains I dislike to see if anything goes below $5 that I need.

Get a random assortment of Creation Crystals on sale for $6 or less each (Trap Price). Try to get Light, Life and Magic crystals for actually having a Light character, and to create Classic Spyro characters. If the different elements actually unlock stuff other than customization options/abilities, then keep an eye on prices to try to get one of each.

Dark Starter X360
Regular PS4
All 30 Senseis
Creation Crystal for each element (if I like creating maybe more....but one per element should be good for me).

Total with taxes 723.78
(Although - Hopefully- the total will be less because of TRU and their Wave 1 sales)

#23 Posted: 20:16:12 03/06/2016
I'll wait for the full roster to be revealed and then I'll decide if I'm going to get all of them or not. There are already some Skylanders I could skip and villains that are possible which I really don't want in my shelf (Gulper, Chompy Mage)

For now I'm planning on buying two senseis (that includes villains) so leaving one out and I'll try to balance out the battle classes so that there aren't more of one then another. Also one Imagination crystal of each element and of course the PS3 starter.

I'll get the starter pack and as much creation crystals as I can. I'll use senseis for moves, etc. to apply to my creations. Maybe I'll try attaining ten senseis, one for each element AND each ability (There are ten right?), or maybe go out of my way to get all of the senseis.

All Senseis and Villains. Now, with Creation Crystals, here's what I'm thinking - If there is one per element, (pls God) I'll buy each one. Now, if they have a thing like the Villain Vault in the game where you can change what creation is in your crystal, then I'm sorted. If there is not, then I will try to get as many crystals as I can. However, if my worst nightmare comes true and Trap Team repeats itself, then I guess I just try to collect them all while my wallet dies an agonizing death.

I'll go for my standard plan of getting all the characters and expansion packs (actively avoiding reposes and recolors, to which I've made very few exceptions). Also one Crystal per element. I don't really care if that results in any limitations, I'm going for a balance of practicality and what I want (and having both collectionist and purist tendencies, I generally want all the things, but only in their standard iteration).

Like with Trap Team, I wanted as many trap designs as possible (but no more than 1 of each design for minimum cost and maximum uniqueness), distributed in a practical way over the elements (a 1:2 ratio of traps/villains, rounded up in the case of Kaos and Magic). Only ended up ditching my least favorite design, which was the creepy upside-down trap.

We'll get most of Wave 1, probably. From there... I imagine we'll get at least one creation crystal of each element and won't be too bothered by collecting many, if any, variant crystals. Then the Wave 2 on Senseis and Villains will likely be bought at retail during sales.
GamerZack7 Yellow Sparx Gems: 1709

Mainly

1. Dark Wii U Starter Pack
2. A Sensei/Villain for each Battle Class (my favorite for each class)
3. One Crystal per element and maybe some extras if I come up with more ideas I really like

After I have everything I need I'll slowly get the rest like every other game (like really slow I still haven't gotten everything for any game but I'm close for SSA and SG.

So, my plan is to buy what I can afford. Already pre-ordered the Dark Edition.
Now, given my plan, there has to be a priority, right?

1. Light Imaginite
2. Magic Imaginite
3. Luminous
4. Nightshade
5. Pain-Yatta
6. Light Sensei #1
7. Dark Sensei #1
8. Light Sensei #2
9. Dark Sensei #2
10. Chompy Mage
11. Chef Pepper Jack
12. Dr. Krankcase
13. The Gulper
14. Dreamcatcher
15. Villain #11
16-34. Any other Sensei
35. Undead Imaginite
36. Tech Imaginite
37. Water Imaginite
38. Earth Imaginite
39. Air Imaginite

If I decide to get anything extra, it'll probably be one of the following options:

OPTION 1
•An Earth Sensei and an Undead Sensei, filling in the missing classes
•The other two Villains (either Air and Magic or Light and Dark)
•Four more Crystals (Light, Earth, Undead and Dark)

OPTION 2
•Eight more Crystals (two each of Light and Dark, plus one each of Earth, Air, Undead and Magic)
