It’s time to brace yourself. A Skylanders Giants explosion is coming soon. Yes, I know the game just came out on October 21, 2012, and you’d think that’s when the flurry of excitement surrounding it would peak, but that’s not so. It’s really going to hit sometime around Christmas, once people start getting Skylanders Giants as gifts. That’s when kids and certain adults will want anything Skylander related that is even remotely awesome. I’m sure the Skylanders Giants Megabloks will be on that list.
The Skylanders Giants Megabloks series aren’t immediately available, but will be in a few weeks. It has an October 2012 launch window, after all. Sets will start at $9.99, giving buyers a Skylander figure, a battle portal for him or her and usually a Chompy enemy. However, the bigger and better sets are far more expensive. Take the Crusher’s Pirate Quest set, which is $49.99 and includes two standard Skylanders figures, a Giant figure and a buildable pirate ship and island. The real big-boy in this set though is the Dark Castle Conquest, which is $119.99 and comes with a castle to build, one giant and Skylander figure and figures of Kaos and his minion.
If you want to go cheap, then just grab the $9.99 basic sets or maybe one of the more expensive $20 sets. The blocks work with any Megabloks set. Just remember the Skylanders Giants Megabloks figures are not compatible with the game.
If you’re looking to buy, bookmark the Megabloks page, as it lists stores that will carry Skylanders Giants Megabloks. Also visit Toys R Us’ website, as it is still accepting pre-orders on some of the sets.
