I honestly don't really see this as too big of a concern. Though I think activision was wise to squash this as quickly as they did, I think the target audience of this game is such that they're either too young to understand this, or they'd rather actually own the figures anyway. People who don't want to have to buy the figures aren't likely to buy this game in the first place. At worst I suppose it could hurt the secondary market as if there are any rare figures that are hard to come by people are probably more likely to use a hack to play as that character then pay ridiculously bloated prices on ebay or what have you to get the actual figure.
i honestly dont blame those who decided to hack the char you are using to change them into another at will without buying the actual toy i mean as if buying the game at its price wasnt good enough.. no, they expect us to spend more money on toys too..? the game does look fun dont get me wrong but having to spend additional cash on toys to be able to use em in the game isnt worth my money especially if this game isnt wifi compatible

The only way I would support someone doing something like this, is if Activision is shady enough to not provide us with the remaining 12 characters. Without the last 12, every version of this game is incomplete, especially the home console games which unlock Heroic Challenges for each new Skylander that's placed on the portal.

Yeah I will keep buying. The reason I bought the game was the collecting aspect of buying the toys. I collect Pokemon toys and Pokemon cards and Dinosaur king cards already. This was another thing I thought it'd be fun to collect.
Personally I would never use a hack because it defeats the purpose I bought the game for in the first place.=/
I can understand why people would do it though with me and what I enjoy I actually enjoy the collecting aspect of the toys far more than the game itself. Being able to use the game with the toys is a bonus for me really.

Theres a knife wielding sociopath living in my basement. But it's okay, he helps out with the chores.
I can see Activision doing this as well. It not only screws the company, but it screws the MMO aspect of the game as well. Being able to hack the characters would have reprecussions online as well thus ruining it for the online community
