Wave 4 Plus New Variants


Hey Addicts!

Skylanders fans around the world are going crazy with the news of new figures and vehicles being released. With wave 4 Activision seems to have some surprises for us let’s take a look.

Wave 4 Vehicles

Thanks to Dark Spyro, MySkylanders.de, SCL, and Skylanders Inquirer we have images of what the vehicles will look like. There are 5 vehicles included in this wave one being the Easter in – game variant Spring Ahead Dive Bomber. The other vehicles are…

  • Soda Skimmer
  • Sun Runner
  • Tomb Buggy
  • Hot Streak

Hot Streak is making it’s first appearance outside of the starter pack. This is a great opportunity to add this vehicle to your collection without buying a starter. For those of you that just want Astro Blast and Sun Runner you have your chance to do so as well. I think it would be better to get the racing pack personally so that you can get the trophy, but any way to save cash and still enjoy the game is the goal.

Wave 4 Figures

Looks like there are only 3 figures in this wave (4 if you count Happy/Eggcited Thrillipede).

  • Astroblast
  • Bone Bash Roller Brawl
  • Spitfire

This is a very weird release I say that because the only new figure is Bone Bash Roller Brawl. The other figures have already been released in the Regular Starter Pack and the Sky Racing Pack. Bone Bash will also be included in a Dual Pack with Tomb Buggy and a Triple Pack with Tomb Buggy and Splatter Splasher. Also making a Dual Pack appearance is Big Bubble Pop Fizz and the Soda Skimmer.

Once again we get more variants in this wave. This time around they are bronze/copper in color. Bone Bash and Tomb Buggy both get the shiny metallic makeover. So far a few of them have been sited. The image of BB Roller Brawl was posted by a store employee on the Skylanders Game page and Instagram user @smoldersmith posted the image of the Tomb Buggy variant.

Hungry? Eat A Skylander!


KC-19607_10062507-CF

Hey Addicts!

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.

 Activision Publishing, Inc. and ConAgra Foods’ Kid Cuisine have teamed up to bring even more fun to frozen-food grocery aisles. Available now through April 15, kids everywhere in North America can enjoy a variety of Kid Cuisine meals inspired bySkylanders®, the pioneers of the toys-to-life category, giving fans all the more reason to play with their food. The promotional meals will be available at all participating major grocery stores and supermarkets across the country, as well as Walmart and Target.
KC-19624_10062548-CFThe Skylanders-inspired Kid Cuisine meals will infuse the magic that the blockbuster franchise is known for with this novel partnership. Fans will enjoy meals featuring their favorite characters such as Stealth Elf and Kaos shaped chicken nuggets with gem-shaped cookies, and Spyro and Dream Catcher-shaped macaroni with pudding that changes color while you eat! Fans will be able to get their hands (and mouths) on nine different Skylanders-themed Kid Cuisine meals:
  • Cheese Pizza
  • Beef Patty
  • Mac & Cheese

What’s more, fans will get an extra treat inside each Skylanders Kid Cuisine meal box; a free Stealth Elf Skylanders Battlecast card. Skylanders Battlecast brings cards to life in a new free-to-play mobile adventure, set within the Skylanders universe. The game offers everything from collectability to strategic card combat, online PvP and an exciting single-player campaign, appealing to both Skylanders fans and classic card battle enthusiasts. Skylanders Battlecast lets players create a team of their favorite heroes and build the ultimate deck for battle.  Portal Masters won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to continue to build their ultimate deck of cards on their quest to become a legendary Battlecaster in anticipation of the game’s official launch in 2016.
Skylanders_Battlecast_Cards_to_Life
I am a little bummed that the only card we will get is  stealth elf card. Would have been nice to get a different card in each package. Still nice to be able to bit into a Kaos head lol! Will these little meals be included in your next shopping trip? I know once my little ones see them they will be on mine. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

 

Let’s Talk Battlecast!


tumblr_nuygljcwlM1sbfuf4o1_1280

Hey Addicts!

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.

battlecast

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.

battlecast2

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’.

trading-sheild

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.

card-in-shield

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.

  • Hex
  • Smash Hit

Skylanders_Battlecast_Cards_to_Life

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!!!

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
