Since the launch of Skylanders, some of the most exciting, sought-after figures for Skylanders collectors have been Special Edition characters. These rare figures are sure to be the crown jewel in any Skylanders collection.
With the release of Skylanders Imaginators, two new Special Edition sets will be available: the Skylanders Imaginators Dark Edition and the Skylanders Imaginators Crash Edition. This FAQ will tell you all you need to know about getting your hands on them.

A Special Edition is a Skylanders toy that is differently-colored, produced in limited numbers, or created for a special event. They’re highly prized by Skylanders collectors and can often be found in Special Edition Skylanders Starter Packs or other specially-marked character packs.
Two Special Edition Starter Packs will be available with the launch of Skylanders Imaginators: the Dark Edition and the Crash Edition. The Dark Edition Skylanders Imaginators Starter Pack comes with three silver-and-black Skylanders Senseis while the Crash Edition Skylanders Imaginators Starter Pack for PlayStation 3 and PlayStaion 4 comes with everybody’s favorite sneaker-wearing marsupial Crash Bandicoot and his arch-enemy, the wily Dr. Neo Cortex.
