It officially Christmas time and the Skylanders have given us yet another holiday tune. Check out the video below and Happy Holidays!
This is exciting news for me and I am sure most of you portal masters and addicts out there that love this franchise as much as I do. For years now we have wanted to see an animated movie or series of the Skylanders. There had been rumors that Activision was planning to release something, but the rumor was quickly nipped in the bud. Sadly we thought it would never happen as they said they were not interested in anything other than making the game. Then we got Skylanders comic books which in my opinion are freaking BOOMTASTIC! Naturally one could assume there would be a TV series or something coming. Well today our prayers have been answered by the Sky Gods!
There is not much information about the series except that it will be called Skylanders Academy. It will be the first project released by the new Activision Blizzard Studios Film & TV Company. They did give us a list of voice actors that will be voicing the Skylanders.
“Skylanders™ Academy” will feature the voices of Justin Long (“Alvin and the Chipmunks,” “Ask Me Anything”) as Spyro, Ashley Tisdale (“Phineas and Ferb,” “High School Musical”) as Stealth Elf, Jonathan Banks (“Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul”) as Eruptor and Norm Macdonald (“Saturday Night Live”) as Glumshanks. Additional voice talent includes Harland Williams and Richard Horvitz.
The series is now in production so I hope that we will get to see the new show by summer of 2016 (fingers crossed).
Take a look at the official pre release on the Activision website to get a bit more details on what we can expect from Activision Blizzard Studios. I will keep you all updated with more info on this topic as I get it. Do you think that the Skylanders cartoon will be good? Are you excited? Take the poll and leave a comment let us know what your thoughts are. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Skylanders isn’t the only thing coming! Duty Calls! LJ Out!

Just wanted to give you a quick update on what has been the talk of Skylands the Light & Dark elements. Activision has confirmed that we will be seeing the expansion packs this Sunday December 21st at Toys R Us. Unfortunately it looks like we will not be seeing Wave 3 until after Christmas. There is a rumor that they will be released the day after Christmas or that weekend but nothing has been officially announced. Check out the press release I got this morning to get all the juicy details.

Element Expansion Packs This Holiday Season
Never-Before-Seen Elemental Zones and Villains Now can be Accessed and Captured in
Skylanders Trap Team
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Dec. 17, 2014 – For the first time since the launch of theSkylanders® franchise, two entirely new elements – Light and Dark – will be unleashed in the world of Skylands, announced Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI). Two new Trap Masters, Knight Mare and Knight Light, will hit store shelves nationwide this holiday season via special Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs, ushering in new adventures in the lore of Skylanders® Trap Team. Each Element Expansion Pack contains a Trap Master, a special Trap capable of capturing either Light or Dark villains, as well as a location piece that unlocks a special level in the game. The Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs will be available at all major retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99. Lucky Skylanders fans will be able to get their hands on copies of the Light Element Expansion Pack, which will be available first at Toys”R”Us® stores nationwide starting Sunday, December 21.
Portal Masters will have the opportunity to explore new levels within theSkylanders Trap Team universe, where they will find never-before-seen villains to capture and environments to explore. Amongst these villains are Luminous and Nightshade, who belong to the Doom Raiders – the elite members of Kaos’ army of Skylands’ most notorious bad guys.
“It’s amazing to see how deeply engrossed and fascinated our fans have been with the lore of the Skylanders franchise,” said John Coyne, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Activision Publishing, Inc. “By unveiling new Light and Dark elements and heroes to the Skylanders universe, our fans around the world will have new ways of exploring all the magic, excitement and fun of Skylands.”
The introduction of Light and Dark elements reveals additional back story of the Skylanders universe for fans to explore. Long ago, Knight Light and Knight Mare were both protectors of Skylands until being sealed off in other realms. Now that they have joined the Trap Masters, Knight Light wields his Traptanium Blade and Knight Mare unleashes her deadly Traptanium Lance to bring down evil everywhere!
There are images popping up on the Internet of the Wave 3 Trap Masters at Walmart stores on the West Coast as well as the expansion packs. Blackout and Spotlight look amazing! Who are you excited to play with the most? Team Light or Team Dark? Take our poll and let us know what side you are on. To get a closer look at these beautiful figures check out the video and the images in the gallery below. Until next time I will catch you on the SKYSIDE! BOOM!
This weekend is going to be legen… wait for it… dary! According to my sources Toys R Us stores have received shipments of Wave 3 cases. I also have been told that this wave is set to be released this Sunday 12/21/14. Can we expect to see Trap Masters Blastermind, Ka-Boom, and Tuff Luck in this weekends release? One of my sources says yes another source says TRU will not be receiving the Trap Masters or Core Skylanders before the holidays only the Light Element Packs.
I sure hope the latter isn’t the case there would be a lot of sad Portal Masters out there this holiday season. Be on the lookout for the TRU Hot Toy Alert coming to an email near you. I’m super excited to get my hands on Knightlight he looks so epic! Well that is all the info I have at the moment check out the images in the gallery of the Trap Masters & Core figures as well as the video review of the figures. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
A few weeks ago I was privileged to receive an email from a PR person at IDW asking if I would like to review the new Mini Comics. Of course my answer was a big fat “YES!” So, about a week after that I got a package in the mail came nicely bubble wrapped with care, great job IDW with packing the box by the way. Proper packing is key in this game called collecting it can make and break you. There are still a few companies that don’t get the concept yet.
Anywho, check out the video below to get a closer look at the comics. If you don’t already own them I suggest getting to your local Toys R Us, GameStop, and Comic Book Shop immediately! Midtown Comics is a great place to shop for your comic book needs If you haven’t heard of this place you are missing out on one heck of an experience IMO. Not only do they have a huge store in NYC, but they have an online store as well with great prices, subscription and back stock options.
I have gotten pretty much all of my comics from this company and I am rather pleased with the orders I made through them. They came perfectly mint inside of a brown bag then that bag was placed inside of a special cardboard box that kept everything in place. They are definitely one of my favorite collectible retailers when you order or visit their store tell them LJ The Toy Addict sent cha! Take a look at the gallery to see the cover art for the latest Skylanders Comic Book. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
