Been I while I know had some personal things come up, but never the less I am back with a nice update. So for all of us Portal Masters that have been patiently waiting for the release of the Halloween special edition figure we can say goodbye to the wait and hello to Pumpkin Eye-Brawl. He has been released in stores in canada as of today. I was told he has been spotted at Wal-Mart and EB Games the release is said to be the 11th for the rest of us here in the US. I for one am overly excited for the release of this figure and Swap-Force I can’t wait to get my hands on him I pre-ordered at Game Stop after the Sears and K-Mart fiasco. Well, I hope this helps out my Canadian readers and Monster Collectors like myself catch you on the SKYSIDE!
I’m back with a quick announcement that you are going to love to hear! So I was doing my usual thing after homework checking out what is new in the world of Skylanders. I get a message from my friend Marty and he asks me if I heard anything about Pumpkin Eye- Brawl or Wicked Thumpback? This was my face o_O?? I never felt so out of the loop so I had to check out Dark Spyro and I saw the post all about the Pumpkin Eye-Brawl and the hint of a Wicked Thumpback, but nothing was confirmed still was waiting on an answer from TFB. Thanks to fellow addict Rachael P. I was inform that K-Mart will be having the variant so guys don’t rush to ebay or anything to try and get unless you just have to have it. Just don’t fall victim to the scalping I foresee coming in a major way! No images of the variant as of yet, but some speculate that it may be a Jack Pumpkin, Legend of Sleepy Hollow style figure. I hope so that would be so cool or if he was holding a pumpkin and his green eye instead of blue that glows bright orange! We will just have to wait and see I’m excited I hope to see a wicked Thumpback as well. As a collector I love the variants the thrill of the hunt is the best part for me I love the feeling I get when I find something rare or something I have been hunting for a while. I understand it can be a down right pain in the butt for some of you, but in my opinion you can’t be a true portal master if you don’t enjoy hunting it’s all part of the game. So now it looks like I have 5 new figures to hunt down the 3 Metallics, Pumpkin Eye-Brawl, and thanks to Portal Flip and Dark Spyro Gnarly Tree Rex in Single Pack. Maybe 6 if they decide to release the rumored Wicked Thumpback can you say stoked! Man these late variants are a blessing and a curse great to see them hate to see the faces of kids that can’t get them. I will have to hold a contest for them maybe a Halloween Costume Contest let me know what you guys would think about that idea. Well, once again we come to a close good luck and happy hunting addicts until next time catch you on the Skyside!
