Skylanders Giants fans who happen to be in New York City this coming Tuesday would do well to stop by Toys’R'Us in Times Square, where Activision will be holding a special promotional event for the second Skylanders game.
The primary draws of the promotion include Skylanders Giants starter packs for one third their normal selling price, along with buy two, get one free deals on other Giants figures, and the chance to win a figure of Ninjini before her official release. Word has it there will be a “meet-and-greet” for kids attending as well, which conjures up images of people in ridiculously oversized costumes of the game’s characters.
Activision was shrewd enough to slate the event for 4:00 PM Eastern, after the bulk of their target audience should be done with school for the day, so older Skylanders Giants fans can expect a fair amount of the wee ones taking command of the place. If you’re still devoted enough to brave a sea of children, or have a child of your own who won’t likely let you live down missing this event, the Toys’R'Us in question is located at 1514 Broadway (at 44th Street), New York, NY.
