Skylanders Legendary Characters Have Clear Advantage

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure figure statistics and availability are perfectly poised to create the collectors dream: the “must have” and “hard to find” status that creates the thrill of the hunt.

In an effort to get the jump on the holiday rush, I have (along with help from readers like Nathan Beitler) been working through the different Skylander Characters to construct a definitive Skylanders Stats comparison list.

Here is a table that totals up each available character’s statistics. As you can see there is a quite a discrepancy between the top characters (at around 280) and the bottom characters (at around 220). In the game you also need to consider the effectiveness of their weapons, but this is a good guide to begin with.

As you can see the Legendary characters have received a substantial stats boost over their non-legendary counterparts. Add to this the fact that these characters come together in a Toys R Us exclusive and you have the makings of a Christmas must-have and sell-out toy.

My advice however is not to be overly swayed by this panic buying of Skylander toys. Spend some time looking through the Skylander Characters and decide which ones best suite your play style. Along with this you should ensure a good spread of Elements to gain access to the majority of the game – and those all important Hats and Soul Gems. Finally, have a look at the craft of the real figures — my personal favorite is still Stealth Elf, as much for the way she looks as how she performs in the game or how much she is worth second hand.
