Skylanders portal use with giants issue
Has anyone ever seen a problem with upswing the portal from skylanders giants where the little figures work fine but the giants only work if you hold them about an inch above the portal? All the giants figures act this way, but the series 2 and light ore figures all work fine.

Haven't tried a second portal yet but that's going to be attempted. Just curious if anyone has seen this. I just placed a tv remote control on top of the portal and placed the giants figure on top of it when I wanted to use one. Worked fine that way, just seemed very odd.

My orginal Skylanders portal did not work well with the Giants so i am very glad i got the Giants starter pack

Have you tried positioning them on a "corner" ?
I have a similar issue where the portal wouldnt recognize giants if i positioned them on the center but would work if i moved it closed to the edge.
Try it.
Good luck!

Just started playing today, I have this issue with Tree Rex and my original xbox portal. If you turn the portal upside down it works perfectly. Not good quality control, I am going to pursue this further.

Well I contacted Activision on their UK phone number and got a very helpful chap who is going to send me another Tree Rex. All I have to do is send them a piccie of my current Tree Rex next to a bit of paper with my Activision Support Case number on it. He also specifically said there is no need to send back the old one.

Really very good customer support.
