[Updated] GameStop Announces Exclusive Skylanders Swap Force Dark Edition Starter Pack

Skylanders Swap Force Dark Edition Starter Pack
Game Stop Exclusive. The reveal hasn't been officially put on the Facebook page but Game Stop let the cat or Skylanders out of the bag... or Kaos's lair.

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.
Embark on an exciting new adventure with the Skylanders and the SWAP Force. For generations, the SWAP Force protected the volcano that replenishes Skylands' magic. That is until an epic battle caught them in an eruption that blasted them apart, sent them to Earth and gave them the ability swap powers. Only you can mix and match their tops and bottoms, put them on the new Portal of Power and help save Skylands.
Dark Edition Starter Pack includes:
  • 1-Video Game
  • 1-Portal of Power
  • 5- Dark Skylanders Figures
  • 1- Mega Character Poster
  • 5-Sticker Sheets with Secret Codes
  • 5-Trading Cards
The date for release was 12/31/13 but has been updated for some consoles to be 10/13/13. So it sounds like it will be ready for October but at least they won't miss the holiday season when skylanders are going to be the hottest toy/video game of the year.
Dark Edition is $99.99. 

So this brings up more questions... Will the "Darks" be available in single packs? Or will Blast Zone, Wash Buckler and Ninja Stealth Elf be available in single packs? We already have 3 portals and a new one is warranted with the swapping technology but please don't make us by more than one starter pack. Please.

UPDATE: The official Facebook page has posted this with a link to the Wii version on the GameStop site:
