One of the problems that plagued the 2011 holiday season was the lack of Skylanders available for many disappointed parents and children. Activision has thankfully rectified this with Skylanders Giants and now, we’re even seeing packs release early, as is the case with the new Scorpion Striker Battle Pack available at GameStop. The pack includes Series 2 Zap, Hot Dog, and an in-game catapult for $25. Additionally, if you spend $29.99 or more on Skylanders between January 16th and January 31st, you can get a free character.
It’s unfortunate that the pack contains none of the new giants, as many are waiting or the likes of Thumpback and Eye Brawl to make their way to retail. We’ll probably see them sometime next month once this pack becomes available across all retailers.
