The quick-selling toys are available at select locations.

Select GameStop locations are now accepting trade-ins of Skylanders figures, according to Pixelitis.

The site reports that they received an internal GameStop document from a trusted source, which revealed the pricing policy on this new trade-in offer. Figures being traded in are said to be worth anywhere between $2 to $8, depending on their rarity. The figures will then be sold in the store from prices anywhere up to $20.

This GameStop offer is not available at all locations, so you may want to call ahead and see if you are able to trade-in your old or unused Skylanders figures.

I'm very surprised they didn't start doing this after Christmas when the stock of Skylanders dropped like a stone.

Aren't some of the super rare ones worth like hundreds of dollars? Its not right that they would only give a person a maximum of $8, but then again little of what Gamestop does is right.

But then they are gonna charge no more than $20 for them, so it works out great for those who want to buy them.

The only ones that are worth "hundreds of dollars" are that super-rare variants (gold/silver and the Toy Fair variants).  No one is going to trade those in to GameStop.

$8 seems more than fair for figures that retail for $8-$10 or 3/$20-$25.
