Has anyone else caught the fever that is Skylanders? I bought the game Tuesday and 200 dollars later I'm drowning in plastic collectibles. I love this insidious marketing device how does my fellow bombers feel?
I have to ask - what's driving you to buy more of them? I've seen that people enjoy the game itself, and I've also seen that people just are getting into the 'collect them all!' mentality. I'm just curious as to what it is that makes it fun for you - is it the toys themselves, or the way the toys and the game interact?
I just got it for 3ds and I do believe the bug has bitten me. If I'm not mistaken, my summoning portal also works with my 360. THAT is serious trouble. *sigh* yup. I have a feeling I'm gonna be taken for a very expensive ride. . . atleast it's gonna make me smile the whole way. Now if only I could battle these little suckers against other peeps. . .
I find this sad to admit to anyone but myself but If I had the cash to do this, I would have bought them all. There is something about gaming collectibles that draws me near and I cannot wait to back in a financial area to be able to have fun with it again.

As for Skylanders, this just seems like a bizarre fad to me. I understand the marketing genius behind it but I'm so far from the target audience, it's kind've baffling to see grown adults and kids alike buying into Skylanders so hard.
