The Portals (both new and old) also power the brand new LightCore features of certain special Skylanders. When brought near the Portal of Power they start glowing! All of the Giant Skylanders contain this LightCore feature but only a select few of the normal sized Skylanders have a LightCore variant. Those that have an additional LightCore edition are Jet-Vac, Pop Fizz, Chill, Shroomboom, Drobot, Hex, Eruptor, and Prism Break. The LightCore versions of these characters cost slightly more than the regular versions (and the ones in the Starter Pack are not the LightCore versions).
The first game supported 32 different toy characters and the second game will expand this with another eight large Giant Skylander figures, eight new normal Skylanders and eight . Additionally, the original game offered limited edition (gold, silver, translucent and glow-in-the-dark) characters that become much sought after.
