Happy New Year! There has been a bunch of craziness going on in the world of Skylanders. New Skymiibo Dual packs, Kaos Trophy single pack, possible Dark Edition Dual packs being released, Birthday Big Bubble Pop Fizz, and BATTLECAST! I’ll be posting more info about this stuff later.
Skylanders Inquirer and Myskylanders.de have been running some wonderful Skylanders news articles giving us a bunch of info about what’s coming. Check them out when you can.
I wanted to give you all a heads up about the new Skylanders day at Gamestop. Here is a look at all the deals you can find that day.
These are some sweet deals on Skylanders stuff great time to get things you are missing until the new wave is released. Until next time i’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
I covered this info a while back in a post but it now has officially been confirmed that King Cobra Cadabra and Steampunk Shrednaught will be exclusive to GameStop stores.
I got an email like I’m sure most of you have stating there would be another Skylanders Day June 27, 2015 at GameStop. We all know how I feel about Skylanders Day at GS, but things look promising this go around. Here is a look at the deals going on all week.
As you can see there will be various sales going on throughout the week starting tomorrow June 24th, but there will be a set of sales that will only be valid on Skylanders Day the 27th. Here is what you can expect to see on sale during the day of the event.
The deals that stand out the most to me are the Buy 1 Get 1 Free Deal the day of the event I’ll be taking advantage of that deal to get King Cobra Cadabra. I will also be preordering the game and getting my Shreadnaught trap as well as I am a member of the Skyalnders Adventure Club have been since the beginning. If you haven’t joined the club you should it’s free and you get free figures! Of course there are stipulations, but it pans out.
If you still need a starter pack I would get one now as this is an awesome deal with a nice amount of Skylanders extras. The best deal out of all the sales would have to be the Eon Elites being Buy 1 Get 1 Free. I’ll be taking advantage of this sale as well to get the last two Elites I need (Eruptor & Gill Grunt).
Will you be attending Skylanders Day? What will you be getting? Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Evening Skylander Addicts! Got a bit of info for our UK readers.
After a call from my friend who works at Toys R Us today I flew straight over to grab myself a bargain, get some images, and info to share with you all!
The first thing I noticed at my local store was that there was a nice amount of light and dark element packs in stock. If you still need one contact your local store you may get lucky. They also have a ton of traps in stock as you can see in the image.
I then saw that the Skylanders Swap Force Island Fun-Play Hide-Away Play-sets are on clearance at £17.99 that is a steal! The Swap Force Flynn’s Airship Play-set is £14.99 another great bargain if you’re looking for one!!
The best deal of the day for me was being able to take advantage of the 7 inch Android Swap Force Tablet sale. They are on clearance for ONLY £19.99!!! Such a great deal I had to grab one for me self and the wife.
You can get the play sets online at toysrus.co.uk, but the Tablet deals are in store only so call around to see if there are anymore in stock in your area. Be quick because once they are gone they are gone! Good Luck and Happy Hunting! Hope you can get out there and grab yourself a bargain.

Yesterday was the huge release of Skylanders Trap Team here in the US. Australian Portal Masters were the first to get their hands on the new game. Pictures and videos galore have popped up and the consensus is Portal Masters are in love with this game! I got this press release yesterday would have posted it sooner, but I was out hunting; I had a blast! by the way. Check out where everything is and what is exclusive to what store officially from the horse’s mouth.
If you haven’t gotten out and grabbed the game get out to your local retailer, take advantage of these promotions and get a copy today! I promise you won’t regret it. For those of you that went out like me and couldn’t find the Kaos single pack trap it won’t be officially released until tomorrow Oct 7th at Toys R Us. A little frustrated because now I’m broke and will have to wait for wave 2 😦 Oh well will make hunting more fun when I can get them 😉 Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

I know I just posted an article about pre-ordering Gear Shift…
but as soon as I posted the article I check my email and see this…
SKYLANDERS® FANS CAN NOW PRE-ORDER A TRAP MASTER TOY FOR
SKYLANDERS TRAP TEAM TM
Limited Supply of Gearshift is Available
Fans who Pre-order the Toy will Receive Gearshift When Skylanders Trap TeamTMLaunches October 5 — Months in Advance of Public Release
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – June 5, 2014 – Skylanders Trap TeamTM will get a heavy dose of girl power when Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) brings Gearshift to Portal Masters via a special pre-order program starting today. Gearshift is the latest character to be unveiled in the Skylanders Trap Team lineup and will be offered toSkylanders fans for pre-order at all major North American retailers while supplies last. This marks the first time fans will be able to get their hands on the Tech element character, months in advance of her official arrival at retail in 2015. Only a limited supply of Gearshift will be available for the October 5, 2014 launch ofSkylanders Trap Team in North America, so fans are encouraged to pre-order her today to guarantee they can get this highly collectible character at launch!
Skylanders Trap Team brings a ground-breaking innovation to the Skylandersfranchise by reversing the magic of its signature Toys-To-Life™ play pattern to let kids bring life-to-toys for the first time. In the game, Gearshift was created on the Tech island of Metallana by King Mercurus, who considered the young robot to be his own daughter. But rather than performing royal duties, Gearshift preferred to spend her time in the oily depths of the kingdom among its workers, secretly tending to the huge subterranean machines. When her father discovered this, he was furious – but then a squadron of Undead Stormriders suddenly attacked. Learning that these marauders wanted to capture her father, Gearshift used her knowledge of the labyrinth below to hide him. Seizing the emblem of her people – The Great Gear – she used it to fight the Stormriders, inspiring the workers to rise up. Together, they drove the Stormriders out of Metallana and saved the kingdom. For this, Gearshift was made part of the Trap Team, using her new awesome Traptanium-forged gear to help defend Skylands.
Skylanders Trap Team allows Portal Masters to seek out the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, capture them and pull them out of the game into their living rooms by securing them in a Trap. Fans can then use Traps to play as both heroesand villains who join the forces of good for the first time in an all-new adventure. The game will come with the Traptanium PortalTM, a new device that will enable kids to hear the villain speaking to them from inside the physical Trap.
Kids will be able to place the Trap in a special slot on the Portal, next to their Skylanders figures, to defeat and capture villains, as well as play as villains. Players also have the option to switch between playing as a Skylander and a villain at any time, creating fun and unique “tag team” gameplay. They can even take their Traps and their Skylanders characters to their friends’ houses for fun, co-operative adventures across console game systems. Skylanders Trap Team will be available on Nintendo Wii™, Wii U™, 3DS™, PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4computer entertainment system as well as the Xbox 360™ and Xbox One™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
Additionally, Skylanders fans attending E3 2014 will get an exclusive first glimpse of this new hero at the Activision booth, which is located in South Hall #1647.
I’m so excited for E3 I wish I could be there so much is going to be revealed and I would love to experience first hand. Gear Shift looks amazing. I wonder if there will be more female characters this go around we already have seen two thus far and they look amazing! Looking forward to see more female characters come out as the series continues to get larger.
Well that’s it for now guys so until next time “Catch You On The SKYSIDE!”
