I'm going to try something a little bit different today. Instead of answering the questions, today I'm going to ask the questions.

I want to hear what you have to say.

Below you will find three questions. You can simply choose to answer one or you can answer all three. It's up to you!

I look forward to reading your responses.

What is your favorite part of SCL?

If you had full control of SCL, what is one thing that you would add, remove, or change?


Other collectible series have price guides. Would you find a Skylanders Price Guide useful? Would you pay to get access to this price guide?

    Your updates are my favorite part. In the beginning I used your website to look up characters that my boys were missing from their collection. Later I used it mostly to search out variants and limited edition figures. I don’t think I would change a thing, it’s a great site. The price guide could be useful but the amount of time to maintain it would be crazy. Not to mention that the market can change drastically in an area or short time frame if a shipment is received at a retailer or whatever else. I would pay or donate if my sons continue with future games in the series.

    Well the giveaways are the most fun, of course. 😉 But I do like news about new figures or anything else like that. Updates on Skylanders 4 will be really great whenever there is anything to report. I also like the occasional posts that explain some confusing aspect of the collection, like the Double Trouble post.

    The only thing I can think of changing might be the variants list. I would personally probably split them into in-game or alt-deco variants and “special” variants (those that are called chase, or are given to employees or event attendees, etc). But that’s really minor. Otherwise job well done!

    I don’t think a price guide would be that useful, but I’m not a super hardcore collector. But between Amazon, eBay, and similar sites, you can get a pretty accurate idea of what a figure is worth already.

    The checklist and thew news is all I use here sometimes and this is rarely I look at what the skylander looks like.

    And I also would change the list configurations on the website and on the printable lists, just make it easier to update and for people to know if they want that variant or not.

    A price guide is in my opinion a waste of time a resources because of the required time it would take to make sure the price is up to date. unless you are going to add a probable price range.

  • Michael Black

    My favorite part of SCL is the available reference resources, being able to find standard Skylanders but also Variants and Special editions thus helping me to find the more rare Skylanders for my daughter.
    I wouldn’t change anything on the site.
    I don’t think a price guide would work out considering people are only going to pay what they think is a fair price. However you could take into account the availability and quantity made of each Skylander new in the box and check the prices of each one on the various websites that deal in Skylanders and figure out the average price. This however would change almost daily.

    I can’t begin to list the things I love about this page! lol! The constant news updates, the ability to comment with your own opinions, the detailed information on all the characters… the list is endless! 🙂
    I wouldn’t change anything- keep up the fantastic work!
    Being that I’m from Australia, most of the price guides are in American dollars. It is kinda pointless for myself. As it is, I think price guides are really wasted unless you have a range of stores with their prices which would be extremely time consuming to collect. If people want to know a price they can usually find out on the stores website or catalogues to see the weekly specials.

      I agree, if you wanted to link any value I would link eBay and Amazon searches for the figures. This would allow you to not have to update pricing all the time.
