We've been looking forward to the Giants arrival and my boys, ages 9 and 6, are having a blast with the new game. It helps that their old characters will work with the new game, since the "Collect Them All" nature of the game does get a bit spendy. On the other hand, earning a new character and time on their game is a fun incentive for doing chores and helping me around the house.

  • A. If you already have the portal you do not have to buy the set that has a portal. They are selling a set with a portal and one without.

  • A. Not sure about this one, I know you have to have the new giants game in order to play. It would not let me use the giants figures on the original game

  • A. I have four nephews--two of them have birthdays the first part of November, so I have done a BUNCH of research. Here's what I've found: The old Skylanders Portal and the new Skylanders:Giants Portal are EXACTLY THE SAME SIZE! The old Portal has areas around the sides and in a circle around the bottom--a neon green strip--that light up while it's being used, the new Portal doesn't have these lights. The "Giant" characters/figures are supposed to fit just fine on both Portals. My nephews have their "old" Portals, but I decided to buy the Giants "STARTER" Kit instead of the "PORTAL MASTERS" Kit because the Starter comes with more figures: a Giant figure--Tree-Rex, a NEW regular-sized figure--Jet-Vac, a "Reposed" figure--Cynder, AND a new Portal. Note: The 3DS Version has "Pop Fizz" instead of "Jet-Vac". All the Portal Masters Kits have just the one Giant figure--Tree-Rex. I'm guessing the figures will be hard to find--Again!--and the "suggested retail price" for a regular-sized figure is going up from $8.99 to $9.99! I'm thinking for $15 more, I'll get $20 in figures and a "spare" Portal! So that's why I'm getting the STARTER Kits, but all YOU really NEED to get is the PORTAL MASTERS Kit. Sorry, that was WAY more info than you asked for, but I hope at least some of it helps. Honestly, I think I've spent "a little TOO much time" with the whole Skyland gang, if you know what I mean!:) I'm ready to go live on an island the Skylanders never come to visit!!! Good Luck and Take Care!

  • A. the figures are interchangeable, but you still need the starter kit for your gaming system in order for the pawns to work

  • A. The characters are interchangable. The reason you see wii, xbox and playstation versions is because those are the starter packs. They come with the game itself. Depending on what console you own you will need that set to play it on that system. When you buy the figures seperately, they will not specify any console because they are interchangable. If you own a Wii and use your figure to collect power and stats, then you can use it on your friend's playstation and it will work with all the same stats.

  • A. All the characters and figures are interchangeable across the different systems & portal, however the portal must match the system you are playing on. For example, you may have a PS3 and will need the corresponding portal, but your friend across the street may have a Wii and will need the wii portal at his home, but you may each bring your own characters to each others houses to play. Hope that helps!
