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!

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!

New Variant Coming to Australia


Flocked Springtime Trigger Happy

Hey Addicts!

I have gotten word that there is an exclusive Flocked Springtime Trigger Happy variant being given away at Target to Australian Portal Masters. Unfortunately, there is a catch to this giveaway you have to spend $30 to get a chance to get one of 25 figures being given away.

I’m excited for this variant as there has not been a flocked figure in a while and he is so cool looking. I hate that it so far away, but we have gotten all kinds of variants here in the US so it’s only right. Makes me wish I lived in Aussie 🙂 For more info go to target.com.au/skylanders/win (the page isn’t live yet). Special thanks go to reader Marty Jordan for sharing the picture with me and Dark Spyro reader mantez for originally posting sharing this great info.

Until next time Happy Hunting and I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

First Look At Skylanders Swap Force Wave 3 Release


Hey Addicts!

First I want to say Happy Holidays to all of you and I hope that you are enjoying all the hunting. There have been so many rumors going around about the release of the new wave that I have been waiting to post anything. Now that I have some solid info I decided it was time to let you all know what I know. So it is looking like Toys R Us is going to release Wave 3 in small quantity on 12/22. Target is also slated to release Wave 3 on 12/29. Here is a look at the triple and single pack figures coming out in this new wave.

This new wave looks so cool! I have got to get my hands on Dune Bug, Stink Bomb and Phantom Cynder I want them the most out of this way. I have been waiting for a Mask/Sneak Type Skylander so that I can finish the challenges and RANK UP! I also want Camo he is one of my Favorites from Spyro’s Adventure I can’t wait to see how well he play’s this time around. If you didn’t know Toys R Us will be open for 4 days straight starting tomorrow 12/21 the store will open until 12/24. The new wave is supposed to be released at 12:01, but I have been told that some may do a 6 am release. So make sure to call your local Toys R Us to see when they will be stocked so you don’t miss out cause these are going to fly off the shelves! Then you will have to wait until Target releases them on the 29th or you could wait until they are released everywhere and get them at Game Stop. That way you could use the Adventure Club card and get some free figures… I mean who doesn’t like free? What characters are you excited to play from the new wave? Leave a comment below. Happy Holidays and Happy Hunting Addicts! Catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Exclusive Toys “R” Us Dino Rang May Not Be That Cool After All


Hey Addicts!

So I was SKY-surfing the web and came across this post in one of the groups I’m in. The post said that the Dino Rang figure that is coming to TRU may just be a repackaged version of the original Dino Rang.

Dino Rang

Meaning it will be the same figure no paint job or anything just new base and repackaging. If this is true I am going to be rather irritated. Most of us Portal Masters already have him I we don’t want two of the same figure with nothing new added to him, besides a new level cap. I hope this is not the case if so it would seem they are trying to milk this game one last time. Could this be the last Skylanders Game Portal Masters? Check out the link below for more details on the cool things going on the next few days.
