IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SKYLANDER FIGURES!!
(For the uninitiated)
We used to have this stated in our listing's item description under "Other Info"
but it was taking up too much space and as most buyers know all of this stuff anyway
we've moved it to here with a link from the item description.
THINGS YOU DO NEED TO KNOW!
Skylander figures work on all consoles in all countries, there is no compatibility issues.
2. RESETTING/OWNERSHIP/ELEMENTAL POWER
Skylander figures have an electronic chip in their base which can be read from and written to, via the portal.
This chip contains information about the character's "Stats" which is updated as you play with it.
It also contains information about Ownership.
You don't have to, but to get the best out of the first 3 games (in Trap Team it doesn't matter!), before you play with any figure, NEW or USED, you need to make sure you first have that character registered to you.
Go to the character "Stats" page and add the character to your collection by confirming you wish to take ownership of it.
When you do this you get a boost in Elemental Power and in the Spyro's Adventures and Giants games you also unlock new Challenge Levels.
In the Swap Force game, BRAND NEW figures are added to your collection automatically, so will USED figures that have been reset.
Other USED figures you will have to claim ownership yourself by going to the "Skylander" page then going to "Manage".
There you will see "Ownership" if the figure was not added automatically.
Press "Yes" to confirm you want to take ownership of the figure, it will then be added to your collection and you get a boost in Elemental Power.
In the Trap Team Game all figures are added to your collection automatically when placed on the portal.
USED figures may have Upgrades, Hats, Money or a "Nickname".
You can RESET the character back to it's original state if you prefer but most people don't.
It's your choice, we won't do it.
You can RESET the figure from the Skylander or Stats pages in the game.
Skylander characters can also be played with "On-Line" in various internet based games and also in "App" games for iPad/iPhone.
NEW figures are supplied with a Webcode on a card or sticker, USED figures are sometimes advertised as being supplied with a code.
The actual individual code is linked to each figure, to see the code for the figure you just place the figure on the portal and go to the "stats" area and you'll see it listed under "Webcode"
You don't need the actual sticker or the card to see/use the code unless you DO NOT have the console game or a portal and are playing the games without using the actual figures!!!, You may find sellers on ebay listing Skylander characters as WEB CODE ONLY.
And... PLEASE NOTE!! You don't need the Webcode to play with the character on any of the console games, it's just for "On-Line" and "App" games.
Codes can usually be used more than once!
If you buy a USED figure and the previous owner has already registered that character you can sometimes register it again.
Not always! So if you do want to use the character "On-Line/In-App" the only safe thing to do is buy a NEW figure, not a USED one!
As the webcode cards/stickers aren't really needed by the vast majority of buyers we no longer supply them with any of our USED figures
with the exception of Series2/Giants/Series3/SwapForce figures that are stated as being supplied with a sticker, if that sticker has the webcode attached then we will supply it.
We cannot guarantee the code will work
There is no way to check if it's been used already or if it can still be used.
