Can someone explain the purpose of this game to me? My son has been playing it at his dad's house and wants me to buy it for home. I looked into it and all I can see are the dollar signs. The game is $60, with a pedestal and a character. Then you have to BUY the other characters to play them in the game? And their anywhere from $5-$20 from what I've seen - per character. What a load of bull honky. Plus, my son says they're going to come out with new Skylanders soon so he wants to start collecting the old ones now for home.
I told him no. I am now a mean mom, and proud of it. Am I wrong in thinking this is a waste of time and money? (Mind you, my son is 6.)
