Skylanders On A Budget – Everything in Spyro’s, Giants, Swap Force for £115 ($186)

With Skylanders Trap Team launching in October, accompanied by a whole new range of figures to support the game, we ask, “is it possible to play Skylanders on a budget?”. What it would cost for a Wii owner to buy Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, Giants and Swap Force, plus the required portals and a selection of figures that would allow them to play through all the areas in the games.

Thankfully access to retail stores online and a whole host of large supply of new, preowned/used figures gives us a wide selection of choices, with prices ranging from as little as £0.96 for a Hex figure from Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure up to £7.49 for Skylanders Swap Force swappable characters.
