You’ll still have to cough up $30+ for Cynder (or maybe not…see below*), Whirlwind, and Double Trouble but you’ve finally got a chance to add to your Skylanders collection at reasonable prices. But act fast because I’m sure that these Skylandrs, like those NO LONGER hanging on pegs at your local Toys-r-Us and Target, will be gone in a flash!

*I’ve got a 2012 NYC Toy Fair exclusive, super rare Skylanders Cynder figure and I’m going to give it away to one lucky reader (and piss my kids off in the process)!
This shiny purple metallic figure is super duper rare and it can be yours to show off to your friends (hopefully not try to flip on eBay, ’cause that would suck). Want a chance to win the exclusive Cynder? Here’s what you’ve gotta do:
Leave a comment on this post telling me who your favorite Skylanders character is and why. Simple enough, right?

This is important: You must leave separate comments for each of those extra entries in order for them to count as extra entries (for example, leave a separate comment that says “I follow you on Twitter”, then another that says “I tweeted about the giveaway”, and so on. Got it? Good.
All entries must be received by 11:55pm ET on Wednesday 2/22/2012. I’ll randomly pick a winner the next day. Good luck!
There is good news and there is bad news. The bad is that I will not be selecting a winner today. The main reason for this is that I want to validate the entries to make sure no one is up to no good, because I already caught someone trying to, essentially, stuff the ballot box. I anticipate this will take several days for me to accomplish. You can thank your fellow Skylanders fans for the delay.
The good news is that there will be two winners. I received an extra Toy Fair exclusive Cynder while at Toy Fair last week and have decided to give them both away. So sit tight knowing your odds just got better.
