Hey Addicts!

I’m so excited to bring you all this awesome news! Activision and IDW are teaming up to give us a deeper look into the Skylanders Universe. It has been long over due for a comic series, cartoon series, or a movie so I am super stoked to see the first issue. For those of you that don’t know IDW is an award-winning publisher of comic books, graphic novels and trade paperbacks, based in San Diego, California.

Renowned for its diverse catalog of licensed and independent titles, IDW publishes some of the most successful and popular titles in the industry, including: Hasbro’s The TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE and MY LITTLE PONY; Paramount’s Star Trek; Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; 2000 AD’s Judge Dredd; The Rocketeer; Toho’s Godzilla; Wizards of the Coast’s Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons; and the Eisner-Award winning Locke & Key series, created by best-selling author Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez. IDW is also home to the Library of American Comics imprint, which publishes classic comic reprints, Yoe! Books, a partnership with Yoe! Studio, and the multiple award-winning Artist’s Edition imprint.

IDW’s critically- and fan-acclaimed series are continually moving into new mediums. Currently, Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Disney are creating a feature film based on World War Robot; Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Warner Brothers are producing a film based on Ashley Wood’s Lore; Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and Sony are bringing Zombies vs. Robots to film, Kurtzman/Orci are producing a movie based on Locke & Key at Universal. Check out all the details below.

THE WORLD OF SKYLANDERS® COMES TO COMICS

ACTIVISION AND IDW ANNOUNCE FIRST-EVER SKYLANDERS COMIC BOOK

San Diego, Calif. (May 15, 2014) – In conjunction with Activision, IDW Publishing is proud to announce the first-ever Skylanders comic-book series, penned by renowned comic-book writer Ron Marz, and  Mike Bowden and David Baldeon as lead artists. In the world of video games, Skylanders is a global phenomenon and the best-selling kids’ game franchise since its launch in 2011.1 Now fans will have the opportunity to follow the adventures of all their favorite characters from Skylands through the magic of comic books. The first issue, a prequel to the Skylanders Trap Team™ storyline, actually provides fans an inside look at where some of their favorite Skylanders came from, and even gives them a first look at a few all-new characters from the upcoming game.

IDW Publishing has been known for the quality and care given to some of the most beloved all-ages properties, and Skylanders is no different. The videogame sensation is making the leap to the pages of comics this July, debuting at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014. Skylanders #0 features an introductory 16-page story as well as character guides and added back-up information. The issue will be launched in both print and digital during SDCC weekend.

“We are thrilled to be combining Skylanders, the pioneer of the toys to life video game genre, with IDW, one of the industry’s leading comic-book publishers in the U.S.,” said Ashley Maidy, vice president of global licensing and partnerships at Activision. “The comic-book series will offer fans a glimpse into the backstories of their favorite Skylanders characters, expanding on the universe that they’ve embraced so enthusiastically in the franchise’s short history. To explore the world of Skylands beyond the game is an opportunity we know our fans have long been awaiting, and we couldn’t be more excited to see this manifested through a comic series.”

Skylanders will also join IDW’s successful Micro Comic Fun Packs line-up this fall and will be available in comic-book stores as well as mass-market retailers this October. Distribution is expected in the following territories: United States, Canada, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand.

“The idea behind creating a Skylanders comic book series resonates strongly with us on so many levels – the storyline and audience appeals to the comic book world and feels like a seamless relationship,” says David Hedgecock, IDW’s Managing Editor and Editor of the Skylanders series. “We’re honored to be the publisher of choice to introduce the world of Skylanders into the comic-book landscape.”

The world of Skylanders continues at IDW and whether you like your comics large, small or digital, we have you all covered!

I have always been into comic books but I haven’t collected in years looks like I will have to get back into it again. I can’t wait to see what the cover is going to look like I can only imagine. I hope that some of the writers and artists that do the artwork for the game work hand in hand to make this series as magical as the game. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!    

Kickoff Countdown Comes To Toys R Us


Hey Addicts!

As most of you may already know Kickoff Countdown is about to be released in the next few days. I woke up this morning to this email from Activision giving us more details. Also included is his awesome back story and some really sweet images you can see them in the gallery. I’m really excited to get my hands on this BOOMTASTIC Skylander! He is going to look real nice in my collection with the others.

Are you excited to add him to your collection? When you do post your pictures on the Skylander Addicts Facebook page we love to see how you guys display your landers. Well this is the end of the line until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

SKYLANDERS® CELEBRATES SOCCER FEVER WITH KICKOFF COUNTDOWN

 

The heroes of Skylanders SWAP Force have enlisted yet another team member in the battle against Kaos, this time with a soccer-themed flair. For the first time in Skylanders® history, Kickoff Countdown will make his way exclusively to Toys”R”Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com on Sunday, May 18, and will be available at retailers worldwide the following week.

This newly designed Kickoff Countdown is the only Skylander with the head of a soccer ball that appears both on the toy and in-game, which is sure to help him battle his way through Skylands’ most notorious Chompies and Trolls.

Originally, Kickoff Countdown was discovered by a group of Yetis who were snowboarding one particularly chilly morning when they came across a big bomb encased in ice.  After bringing it back to their cabin, they were shocked when it actually came to life.

No one, not even Countdown himself, has any memory of where he came from or how he ended up frozen in the mountains.  Since becoming a Skylander, Master Eon has been graciously trying to help piece together fragments of his past.  But this has proven difficult, as Countdown loses some of his memory every time he explodes – which happens a lot!

I apologize for the lack of updates.  Work related training threw my schedule out of whack and it’s been a bear trying to get it straightened out.

In the meantime, Nintendo recently had a press conference with their investors giving them a bit of a sneak peak of what to expect coming up soon at E3.  Amoung the stats and shifting focus, they spoke of a new idea, NFP.  NFP would feature Nintendo figures that could be used with the Wii U’s built in RF scanner to play not just a game with them,  but multiple games.  Much like Skylanders or Disney Infinity, players could use these figures to save and load data to the game. Unlike those, they suggested it would work differently for multiple titles, and possibly multiple platforms.  In conjunction with this, the 3DS will be getting an accessory that would work as an RF scanner as…

Doom Stone and Kick Off Countdown Come to Toys R Us


Hey Addicts!

Yeah I know it’s been a while since I posted anything I’m sorry guys but life sucks sometimes and you have to re-group before you can continue on. Ok life lesson over lol! Let’s talk Skylanders shall we?

Ok if you don’t already know Doom Stone is coming to Toys R Us 5/13/14 that is 2 days away!

Can you say stoked!!! I couldn’t make it out to the Time Square event in NYC so I missed out on grabbing him early. I have looked forward to have him added to my collection. There have been some Portal Masters that already have snagged Doom Stone at Wal-Mart stores on the West Coast according to darkspyro.net.

If you want to play the “Everyday I’m Hunting” game then by all means go for it, but I’m waiting until Tuesday personally.

In other Skylanders News looks like Kick Off Count Down will also make an appearance at TRU as well but it won’t be until 5/18/14. He has been a figure most of you and I included have been anticipating on being released. I like soccer so it is a must have for my collection.

Heads up all UK Portal Masters that don’t know Doom Stone has already been released you can find him at your local Smyths Toys for only £14.99! If you still need to add him to your collection get to your local Smyths or go to their website and order him today.

 

Well that’s it for now guys if I find out any more info I will be sure to let you know as always. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
