Hey Addicts!

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.

 

skylanderaddictsI 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.

skylanderaddicts 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!

Franchise that Pioneered the Toys-to-Life™ Category Leads Holiday Hot Gift Lists for Fourth Consecutive Year

 

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Oct. 5, 2014 – Behold, Portal Masters! Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc.

“The Skylanders® franchise was built on a foundation of creativity and innovation,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “And with Skylanders Trap Team, we’re taking that tradition of innovation to new heights. For the last three years we’ve allowed kids to bring their toys to life in a video game, and this year, we’re letting them reach into the game, and pull characters out into the physical world by letting players trap and play as the villains. Skylanders Trap Team is also the first console game to simultaneously bring the entire AAA experience to tablet devices. Overall, we think Skylanders Trap Team represents our most magical innovation yet. But most importantly, it’s just a great game.”

 

The latest installment of the franchise that pioneered the Toys-to-Life genre is already poised to become one of the top family games this holiday season.Toys”R”Us® recently named Skylanders Trap Team as one of the “Fabulous 15” on the company’s 2014 Holiday Hot Toy List, while Target named Skylanders Trap Team to their Top Toys for the Holidays List.  In addition, the game was featured in Toy Insider’s Hot 20 Holiday Toys of 2014, which highlights the most sought-after and anticipated items of the holiday season.

 

Skylanders continues to lead and evolve the toys to life category with Skylanders Trap Team by letting fans seek out and defeat the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, pull them out of the game and into living rooms by capturing them in magical Traps. Once they’ve defeated the villains, players will be able to place a Trap into the new Traptanium Portal™ to capture them. Players can then send villains back into the game where they can play as them to fight for good, reversing the magic. They will also be able to hear the villains inside the Traps, an innovation that truly brings life to toys.

 

“Since it launched four years ago, the Skylanders brand has continued to captivate young fans around the world who eagerly crowd our stores every time a new collectible character is introduced,” said Richard Barry, Executive Vice President, Chief Merchandising Officer, Toys”R”Us, Inc. “In preparation for the debut ofSkylanders Trap Team, which truly reinvents the franchise’s signature gameplay, our teams across the globe have worked year-long to ensure Toys”R”Us is THE destination for Portal Masters ready to experience all the fun the new game – and our exclusive Legendary Skylanders toys – have to offer.”

Pre-Order Gear Shift While Supplies Last


Hey Addicts!

I know I just posted an article about pre-ordering Gear Shift…

STT_Gearshift_KShot_FINAL_HiRes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but as soon as I posted the article I check my email and see this…

 

Skylanders Trap Team

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!”
