Get $126 worth of Skylanders in LG’s Smart TV Bundle

Christmas might be over but the spending never stops! Those looking to buy a new television couldn’t go wrong with LG’s Lunar offer; plus points if you have kids.

From now until 2 February, 2014, every purchase of an LG Smart TV (2013 model)* is bundled with a Skylanders Battlegrounds starter pack worth SG$126. That’s in addition to the regular mix-and-match gift options, making this limited offer pretty appealing.

It sounds like an odd collaboration but the mobile game has actually been adapted for LG’s televisions. On top of that we get motion sensors, a scroll wheel and directional keys via the Magic Remote to make the controls a little more interesting.

“We’re committed to providing exceptional family friendly entertainment options on our Smart TV platform,” said Mr. Scott Jung, Managing Director of LG Electronics Singapore. “[The] LG Cinema 3D Smart TV and Skylanders Battlegrounds bundle is a surefire winner during the Lunar New Year festive family gathering.”

The Skylanders franchise by Activision has been taking toy departments by storm, raking in over US$1.5 billion worldwide. The action RPG’s core appeal lies with the figures, coming in a variety of types and elements which can then “enter” the game world using the Portal of Power. There are far too many points to cover here but reception has been very positive – adults enjoy it just as much as the children do.

In LG’s case, the starter pack comes with the Portal of Power and three unspecified Skylanders figures. As for the game, it’s compatible with any other figure in the lineup so feel free to expand your collection anytime. Try not to get carried away.

*Note that LG’s UHD and OLED TVs do not fall under this promotion!
