My 8 year old son has recently got into the skylanders game and was looking for a variety of characters to allow him to complete different parts of the game. Some of these characters can be really expensive - Game like to charge around 10.00 in store brand new for them, but Amazon have a great variety of characters of different elements at reasonable prices. They are great little figures, we use them for Trap Team and they work great for them. Great value buying on amazon - otherwise the games could cost you considerably more (but to be honest I do despise that the game requires continuous purchases to complete - the only saving grace is that there are characters available that are lower in price) If you are investing in the game, I would highly recommend these lower priced amazon skylanders.
My son has great taste. He had been telling me ad Drobot was one going to be a great character. Now that I think about it how can you go wrong with a robotic dragon? His attacks are excellent. His eye beams are one of the fast attacks n the game. To begin with they are not the most damaging attacks but what they lack in one shot damage the more than make up for in volume. His blade attacks are more powerful but harder to aim and you can only throw twice on the screen (4 blades) at once. The way I use these is throw so they randomly bounce around the screen while blasting everyone with eye beams. His upgrades are more upgrading the power of his attacks than new abilities. Like most of the other dragons he can fly, but one of his upgrades s afterburners that leave flames behind to burn enemies. These also make his flight a lot faster. Also he adds wing laser later that double his already high speed attack.
Drobot is definitely my second favourite Skylander. He's cute, funny and pretty powerful with a great back story.
Drobot's skilled can be classed as somewhat limited as he does use range motions and his flight is incredibly slow when he upgrades to it, however, what he loses in speed, he makes up for in power. I personally really enjoy using Drobot, he is a great Skylander and provides hours of fun. His voice and phrases are funny especially seeing as he created his robotic suit himself.
His lightcore makes the button on his back glow when he is on the portal of power and in the game so he literally glows.
Drobot has strong upgrades and is definitely a character that can get you through to the end and that you can rely on to be a big help throughout your game and he is a must have for any collector or fan alike.
My grandson is rather wary of these characters as he has been a little disappointed with the abilities of some of them. He was absolutely thrilled to bits with the fact that this one has laser eyes and can fly.
I was surprised when it arrived as I imagined it to be a giant like Treerex, but it is rather small and I worried that I had chosen the right one.
I am playing Skylanders adventure and giants as a twenty year old girl and I can't get enough, the game is not just for children as some challenges are difficult, timed and even a little confusing. It is a very long game only made more entertaining by my purchase of Drobot.
I didn't realise I had bought the lightcore Drobot as for several weeks I have been desperate to buy him, at a reasonable price I purchased him on Monday and he arrived on Saturday morning. The lightcore when placed on the portal of power lights through the centre of the figure and the Skylander on screen.
Pros of Drobot: Technical element. When levelled up becomes durable. Excellent upgrades Easier mini game areas Adorable Has a hilarious laugh and makes random odd comments. Pretty strong. Puts another sticker on your chart
Cons: This Skylander cannot move as fast as some other's e.g. Cynder and Sonic Boom Not the best for abilities. Can die easily due to hindering speed and power in his eye lazers and razor gears Gears are difficult to aim as they shoot from his wings Will not work on Skylanders adventure and visa versa.
I personally highly recommend Drobot for anyone wanting to add to their Skylanders collection. (DROBOT AND LIGHTCORE DROBOT ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE CHART)
All the Skylanders seem to have a limited attraction for my 7 year old who is very computer literate and games friendly. I think they are much more about the anticipation of having it rather than the reality and indeed they sem to be more of a collection interest and a discussion point at school in terms of who has which and the most. In the end, the game remains the same, only the characters vary.
It's a Skylanders Character from the old "Giants" Title. All the old Skylanders can be played at the new Swap Force and of course in the Next Title "Trap Team". This Character was very cheap in the Amazon Sale for only 2.49 GBP. I like the Detail of this Skylander. 5 Stars Rating.
What can you say skylanders was a small idea when I first went to see activision unveil the title. Worried it was a spyro reboot it called straight out to those that played the demo. Skylanders is a fantastic 1 or 2 player title that makes games fun again and very collectable .
