Quick Character Info
Slogan: "He Shoots, He Spores!"
LightCore Shroomboom has basically done a vanishing act since his release at Toys'R'Us. I have NEVER seen him in person at any store. If you do not want the Dragonfire Cannon Battle Pack this is a way for you to pick up Shroomboom and add him to your stable. Do not pay more than retail!!
As for the light-up effect on this one, I think they did a nice job. Rather than yet another disappointment, I think the work done on Shroomboom suffices and casts a nice glow...the green mushroom really sets it off and pushes him over the edge.
I have seen online that the battle pack characters (Hot Dog, Shroomboom, Zap, and Chop Chop) will all get single pack releases, but I would not expect them until the end...That said, if you don't care for the Battle Packs or Light Core, you can still land Shroomboom, it will just be a ways off....
Overall, if you are a Shroomboom fan this is a no brainer. If you are a fan of LightCore characters this one is nicely done.
