Hi all, as the title states, are there still avid collectors of skylanders out there? My wife and I started day one and basically have almost every character besides the chase/metalics/flocked/etc.
Slowly but surely we are still collecting and enjoying the game. We recently just completed all the employee created skylanders!! I think we have a total of around 370 figures. If anyone cares to see I would be happy to post a few pics of the hard to finds! Also, if you have some rare ones and looking to get rid of them let me know smilie
Hope to hear that there are still people out there as excited as us about collecting!
Thanks!

That's awesome, tytra! I knew I never had a chance at employee versions or most of the chase figures (although I got a couple of chase figures that popped up on Gamestop.com from time to time). But I have every standard release toy including things like volcanic vault, UFO hat and yawn traps. Beyond that I have two E3 exclusive figures (Riot Shield Shredder trap and event exclusive Hot Streak) since those show up in-game.

I do have all the figures from the various Frito-Lay promotions stashed away.

My collecting is pretty boring at this point. I got one of each playable character (either the original or a lightcore/variant). I just wanted my kids and me to have access to each character in the game, as well as all bonus levels etc. So now that the craze is over, if I find a variant for really cheap, I'll go ahead and snag it. Haven't found any chase variants yet, but that was never the intention of my collecting. The kinds of things I have gotten lately are a regular Ninjini, because I'd gotten the Scarlet version way back when, and the ssa and lighthouse Hex, because all three were on the TRU 50 cent sale. I could've bought the Solar Aurora at the target half off sale, but honestly, $7 is still too expensive when we've already got the regular.

I keep my eye out at second hand stores though. I saw a Dark Blast Zone at one, and would've gotten it but they had priced it at $5, and I wasn't even interested in paying that much. I have gotten some goodies there though. Arkeyan crossbow was only a buck. Wouldn't have otherwise gotten bonus arenas, but that one was fun.

I just need 2 of each of the following:

Creation Crystals = Air Acorn, Earth Rune, Fire Angel, Tech Pyramid, Light Angel

Skylander = Heartbreaker Buckshot

As usual, no BS...

ever since Activision hasn't been releasing new Skylanders, I haven't been collecting anything new, except for some Amiibos. but hopefully they'll give us some more to collect someday. (heck, I wouldn't mind if they ether re-release the older games for the new consoles or update the older games to let the new Skylanders become playable)

Picked up Imaginators Starter Pack for Xbox One at Five Below for $5 this past weekend.

Thought about picking up a Superchargers Xbox One portal so I could eventually scan in traps, thinking it would only be a few dollars on eBay. Turns out Xbox One portals are hard to find I guess. Cheapest I saw was $12, not worth it. I'm fine with just scanning in Imaginators collection.

I'm still buying rares and the odd variant. I miss the hunt for new Skylanders. But it's hard to justify spending big $ on characters when you know in all likelihood there won't be another console game with physical characters ever again.

I've noticed the prices really starting to drop. I'm getting the odd good deal. Making offers and waiting until they are keen to sell. Not rushing out to buy everything I don't have because one day there will be nothing left to buy. Mind you by that time the chips will probably have started failing.

I am currently recollecting many things in the TTL genre. This includes a good chunk of skylanders stuff. Variants, Reposes, Traps/Extra Traps. Extra Creation Crystals... Though right now I'm focusing on recollecting Disney Infinity, and debating if I want to pick up StarLink. I probably will, because Star Fox on the Switch Version...
Dahvoo Emerald Sparx Gems: 3914
#18 Posted: 19:59:42 22/06/2018
Definitely looking forward to Starlink on Switch. Happy to see it’s not just in-space dog fights like I originally thought.

As long as its consumer friendly (every item can be pre-ordered, release days somewhat up front, etc), I’ll collect em all.

I’m missing a whopping 4 items to have a complete set of Skylander figures.

3 Yawn Traps
Golden Hot Streak (the gold one in the starter sets)

Outside of those and chase variants which I may not even care for at this point, that’s the extent of my collecting needs.

If I happen to find a Skylander I don't have at the junk shop , I will probably pick it up .

Found an s1 Eruptor and sonic boom a few weeks back . Had a rotten day and that really helped . Been playing imaginators and finally got round to reset an imaginators Crystal that belonged to someone else .
Probably the reason I came back to play on this forum a bit .

I still regularly play, currently achieving 100% on Giants (got all the trophies long time ago), and still buying some Senseis and Crystals for Imaginators.

Last year I started Trap Team with my lady, so we got a few more "legacy" Skylanders. She's totally focused on her Swap Force for the Wii.

This Christmas I got a long time desired one... Echo! And I was at Edinburgh for a placement these past months and got another few at CeX: Eye-Brawl, Blades, Dark Spitfire, Smolderdash...

It's sad that the Skylander phenomenon is almost dead, I'm still an active collector/player.

not that i know of, but i haven't looked into it for a very long time. i'd suspect it's not too hard to make a spreadsheet for it, though

i used to keep track of mine with good ol pen and paper. wonder where that list went

hello! i started from the very first game of skylanders to supercharger and took a break due to my period of depression and the arrival of amiibo. and there I woke up and I decided to do it again, I miss it a lot, I think. I've already completed my amiibo collection (except I'm only missing 3 of monster hunter stories 2)

The only figures I would say I need to complete my collection are Pit Boss and the Land Trophy for SuperChargers, but it's impossibe to buy Skylanders at a reasonable price anymore these days. Despite of this, if I find a cheap figure that catches my eye... I'd probably but it!

I still try to complete my collection (Yawn Light Trap, Enchanted Elven Forest Adventure pack, Pain-Yatta crystal and Chain Reaction crystal variants) but the prices are really too high.

My first goal is to find the adventure pack Enchanted Elven Forest at a no too much highjacked prices. I really want to play this part. Unfortunately this pack was impossible to find at my local stores when it was supposed to be available and I have waited too much time before tried to buy it online.

I've ended up starting re collecting again. So far in the past few months I've gotten around 30 Skylanders I never had as a kid.

I'm working towards getting them all eventually (all the non chase ones at least)
