GRAPEVINE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 12, 2013--
GameStop (NYSE: GME), the world’s largest multichannel retailer of video
games, announced today that pre-orders for the exclusive Skylanders

While on a special mission, a team of Skylanders discovered a secret
lair where Kaos was experimenting with a new discovery – Petrified
Darkness – which he intended to use to take over all of Skylands! In the
fight to stop Kaos, the lair exploded, releasing a cloud of pure
Darkness. The Skylanders knew they could not let it escape, so they
absorbed the dark energy, transforming them into dark versions of
themselves. Fortunately, Spyro had learned to tame the darkness within
him long ago. So with his help, these Skylanders now have also learned
to control it – combining its power with their own to fight Kaos and the
forces of evil.
The five exclusive Dark Edition Skylanders Figures featured in the Dark
Edition Starter Pack are Dark Washbuckler, Dark Blast Zone, Dark Stealth
Elf, Dark Spyro and Dark Lockjaw. Customers that pre-order a Skylanders
SWAP Force ™ Starter Pack (Dark Edition or Regular Edition) will
receive a free new LightCore™ Hex Skylanders Figure while supplies last.
Customers can pre-order Skylanders SWAP Force at GameStop stores
