Product Description

Product Description

Skylanders Giants

Thousands of years ago, the Giants fought epic battles in Skylands but were banished to Earth. With a new threat looming, it's time to bring them back to join forces with the Skylanders to defeat Kaos once again. Only you can put them on the Portal of Power to unleash their strength in the ultimate battle to save Skylands.

Skylanders Giants - Lightcore Hex

Species: Elf

Element: Undead

Once a powerful elven sorceress, Hex travelled deep into the underworld to take on Melefor, the Undead Dragon King. She battled and wounded him, but at a cost - she had joined the ranks of the Undead. Though some fear she will use her powers for evil, Eon trusts her as a valuable Skylander and protector of magic-users everywhere.

Skylanders Giants Characters work on all platforms: 3DS, Wii, Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Please Note: Skylanders Giants Characters are compatible with Skylanders Giants and Skylanders Swap Force only.


Box Contains

  • Skylanders Giants - Hex

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 21 Oct. 2013
By Saz2212

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This Hex was advertised as a limited edition Swap Force figure. What you are actually getting is a Skylanders Giants Lightcore figure. It was a free gift with the pre-order of Swap Force, but nonetheless is very disappointing. Very misleading promotion by Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pre-order Reward-er 19 Oct. 2013
By Peter Piper TOP 500 REVIEWER

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is buying advice, not an appraisal of the merits of Hex. Anyway, Skylanders is one of those games that can become a bit of an obsession if you get into it, so I'll split this review into two parts.

-- For Mums, Dads and people buying this for kids --
What you need to know: Skylanders have colour-coded bases. Green are series 1 (Spyro's Adventure) and work on all Skylanders games. Orange are series 2 and work with Skylanders Giants onwards. Blue are the new Swap Force figures and only work with Swap Force (and presumably later games). Simple when you know, eh?

As you can see from her orange base, this Hex is really a regular Skylanders Series 2, (i.e Skylanders Giants) Lightcore character. She's not one of the "Giant's", she's just a regular-sized Skylander, albeit a Lightcore model that lights up, has a mild flash attack implemented when introduced to the game, and has a slightly different skill set to the standard Hex. She's also in a different pose, which is nice if you're into that sort of thing. Personally,I think the standard series 2 Hex is pretty cool Skylanders Giants - Character Pack - Hex (Wii/PS3/Xbox 360/3DS/Wii U), and is a lot cheaper, so why splash out on this one, especially as it was given away free if you pre-ordered Skylanders Swap Force? If you're going to buy it for your kid, leave it until they start to come onto the second hand market, there will be loads being part-exchanged in a month or so, especially just after Christmas 2013, I'd expect. She'll work just fine with Giants and Swap Force, but she won't work with Spyro's adventure. Don't pay any more than you would for a standard Lightcore character.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read the description! 9 Nov. 2013

This is the same as any limited edition Skylander. It is an original hex character, but a lightcore version. No, you wouldn't pay £50 for it. If you can read you will realise that this doesn't come with the game.

The figure came in a very cool swap force box with a poster and card. For a free extra when pre-ordering, I don't see how this could possibly get a poor review, unless you were daft enough to buy this by itself.

My son is very happy with this, and it cost NOTHING!

1.0 out of 5 stars A little exploitative 18 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Although my kids really enjoy the Skylanders games, I only purchased "Skylanders Swap Force: Limited Edition - Hex Character Pack" because it came free with Skylanders SwapForce if you pre-ordered. Otherwise, for the original selling price of £49.99 this character pack would not have been bought. The Hex figure may well be compatible with Swap Force but is actually a Skylanders Giants character with no swappable parts. All in all, a rather misleading piece of marketing.

I don't know if the pricing was set by Amazon or by Activision, but given how popular the game is with children - this price is probably beyond the pocket money of most, so it does feel rather exploitative. On top of that, these figures get snapped up and resold at rather inflated prices. It's not illegal to do that of course, but it does leave a bad taste in the mouth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Advertised Product - Misleading 19 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
You think you are buying Swapforce Starter pack but only receive a Skylander Hex which is actually a free gift! I thought I would get the free gift in addition on the Swapforce Starter pack. This has been sent straight back and the actual product I want has been ordered. Cannot believe anybody would keep this when they realise what they have actually ordered.
Would not buy from them again, ever.

1.0 out of 5 stars Vastly overpriced 18 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase
The 1star rating is for the price. This came free when buying skylanders swap force and is one non swappable figure. Sad to see someone trying to charge almost £40 for it on the day that swap force is released

Beware this product is nothing special & certainly not worth more than £8. It was advertised as a 'rare' free gift for those who purchased the Swap Force game on pre-order at the same time. It promised Hex Swap Force character as a gift for doing so- you came here & added it free. But what arrived was just regular Skylanders Giants LightCore Hex. Apparently no Swap Force Hex even exists- so why didn't amazon spot this obvious con! It also seems that people have had a lot of problems with their Wii Swap Force game freezing too. Probably very annoying for those only enticed to buy the game in the first place due to the promise of a 'rare' free Hex! I got this free with my pre-order of the Swap Force wii game. To be a Christmas gift for my child, but I'll now have to check it thoroughly! It seems it will be faulty & I'll have to send it + this disappointing gift back. Thank goodness I hadn't already given it to my child, she it very young- gets very attached & adopts all her skylanders! I'm disgusted that amazon are happy to let such deceit occur.
