Now by no means do I really think it is a good idea to eat a Skylander. I don’t think that it would taste that great or feel good coming out if you know what I mean, but have you ever been having lunch and thought it would be cool to have Skylanders food. Well thanks to the folks over at Kid Cuisine we have a new way to enjoy defeating Kaos with our stomachs! From now until April we will be able to enjoy 9 different Skylanders themed meals. Check out the press release below.
- Cheese Pizza
- Beef Patty
- Mac & Cheese
- Fish Sticks
- Mini Corn Dogs
- Fun Nuggets
- Popcorn Chicken
- Stuffed Crust Pepperoni Pizza
As some of you may already know Battlecast is coming real soon! Thanks to Skylanders Inquirer, Dark Spyro, and a few other Skylanders blogs we have a little more info about what we can expect to receive once we purchase our first batch of cards. Here is a break down of the game thus far.
First thing to note is that there will be over 270 cards to collect. That is just to much power for one portal master to handle LOL! There are 4 card categories:
- Character Cards-Used to summon Skylanders to cast spells or attack.
- Spell Cards-Used to cast spells (of course).
- Gear Cards-Used to upgrade your Skylander.
- Relic Cards- Used to change the gameplay.
In the tradition of card games there is a rarity scale, a 4 level rarity scale to be exact.
Common, Rare, Epic, and Ultimate are the levels the cards will be broken down into.
The cards will be packaged for purchase in two ways. You can buy the Booster Packs which include 8 cards not sure if there is a guaranteed rare card included as of yet, but I’m sure there will be. Or you can buy the Battle Packs that includes 22 cards, and a ‘Trading Shield’.
What the Heck is a Trading Shield? I asked myself the same question. Well according to Skylanders Inquirer a ‘Trading Shield’ is used to trade cards, post pictures of your cards, etc. because once the cards are scanned into the game via the code on the edge of the card. The card becomes non-transferable the shield also protects your code from being used when you do share.
The price of each pack has not been stated for us here in the US, but going by the price Skylanders Inquirer stated they were $7.99 NZD (approx. $5.45 USD) for the Booster Packs and $16.99 (approx. $11.64 USD) for the Battle Packs.
I am guessing the price will be between $5.99 to $6.99 USD for the Boosters and $11.99 to $12.99 USD for the Battle Packs. We will have to wait a bit longer for a definitive answer.
Here is a list of the some of the cards thus far…
- Smash Hit
- Snap Shot
- Stealth Elf
- Trigger Happy
- Food Fight
- Hot Head
- Pop Fizz
- Roller Brawl
- Krypt King
- Tree Rex
- Wash Buckler
I can’t wait to start playing this! I already play Hearthstone and Battlecast is just a kid friendly version of that game, so I think I’ll enjoy it just as much. If you are a Hearthstone player you know what I mean. With Activision buying the MLG organization will we see a worldwide Battlecast Tournament? That would be BOOMTASTIC!!!
Want some cards? Head on over to Skylanders.Com and click the links next to the images to get Spitfire and Stealth Elf.
Special thanks to Jason over at Skylanders Inquirer for scoop and posting the images. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
I mentioned earlier that there is a new variant of Pop Fizz being made. Pop Fizz seems to be a character that has a pretty nice amount of variants since his release (that is another post in itself).
The latest variant of the character is Birthday Big Bubble Pop Fizz. No details as to when this figure will be released as of yet, but we do have an image of the toy as well as artwork image thanks to myskylanders.de

The new release not only allows players be able to take the game on the go, but now we will also be able to play online against other Apple users.

For the first time, Portal Masters can compete in four-person online multiplayer racing or two-person co-op adventure between devices through Apple’s Game Center. Players on Apple TV can also engage with others online who are on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
“Last year, fans loved how they could play the same incredible game on iPad as on other platforms.
