My son is 5 and loves Skylanders. For Christmas, he got the new game and, I course, money. He wants Hot Dog so badly he doesn't know what to do. Unfortunately, scalpers are selling the darn character for EIGHTY DOLLARS on amazon and this mean mommy won't let him spend every dime of his money to get it.
Anyone else think its ridiculous what they to for?

Thanks. I found out he hasn't been released yet. I have no idea why he's so much on amazon because I can preorder the battle pack from GameStop for $25. :-)

This is the reason we did not get Skylanders.  Too expensive and not worth in imo

It's all he asked for for Christmas and the game is pretty fun. He only gets retail priced characters. We will never pay above retail for one. I wasn't going to break his heart because of gimmicky marketing, lol.
He's pretty much in love so it's all good. :-D

I agree it is ridiculous..and if it helps at all my son collects skylanders also and he told me that there are many skylanders, and that they are sold in a handful so people can have a good start.Just give it some time, and they'll start selling more characters at the right price. You see it on amazon for so much more money because people per-order.
