Hi original.gif

Try www.ozgameshop.com for the games. Much cheaper! And I think the best prices I've seen for the figures are at Kmart.

As PPer said - ozgameshop is the way to go. original.gif Though some of their figures can be a bit expensive, the actual starter packs are much cheaper than most places and they do free post. original.gif

For those that are getting the Wii U:

Big W have the Skylanders Giants Starter Pack for the Wii U for $48 instead of $88.  Big saving!

I saw it online yesterday, but they didn't have anyone online stock it was only instore.  Had to ring around and find one, and then dragged the 3 kids out in 40C heat to secure one - plus it is for them so I had to conceal it!

And wouldn't you know it......this morning they have stock for online orders...with free delivery!

Ok thats a great price. Can anyone tell me if Wii U skylanders giants is compatible with normal Wii??

#14 nellista

I am pretty sure that Wii U games cannot be played on a Wii.

Target have Skylanders in their catalogue at the moment.  IIRC the single characters are $12 and the giants are $16....plus they are also having a promo spend over 50 and get 10 off.  For anyone looking in Sydney, Carlingford as a lot of both series 1 and 2.

Wave 2 is out now though I haven been Able to get the new giant hothead.  Ebgames said they only have enoughs for their preorders at the moment.
