I have been out-of-town for the past few weeks so I haven’t been able to post any info, but I am stoked for E3 like most of you are. It will be announced at 12:00 pm tomorrow and I bet there will be a lot of stuff to be seen. Nothing to share as of yet besides Nintendo is now teaming up with Activision to support Amiibos, which I think will be an awesome venture for both companies. Check out the image below.
I’m over the moon to see Bowser and DK join the Skylanders in this adventure. They will be availble in Wii, Wii U, and 3DS starters from what I can see, but my question is will these be the only Amiibos? I’m sure there will be more I mean how can you have Bowser without Mario?
There is a new E3 exclusive this year and it isn’t a Skylander per say. This year we will be getting an exclusive variant of Hot Streak and I must say the color scheme is pretty awesome!
According to press releases there will be new and returning licenses coming out with the release of the new game as well.Man there is a lot of stuff coming with this new release licenses galore glad to see that things will be a bit different from it was last year. I didn’t notice as many licenses in 2014. I know there will be so much more info so I’ll be posting as I get it when I can as I’m still on the road. I’ve got one more image that you may not have seen check this out!
This Skylanders name is Fiesta I guess it is safe to assume he was inspired by the Mexican Day of The Dead holiday and art. He looks BOOMTASTIC! I’m so full from all this Skylanders info I feel like I am going to burst! Yet I still keep screaming FEED ME MORE! LOL! How do you all feel about the new look of the characters and vehicles? Will you be adding the new Skylanders Amiibos to your collection? I know I will and if you are as addicted to Skylanders as I am you will too. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Looks like we have some new things to add to the collection coming real soon. Crayola and General Mills has announced that they have joined Activision’s License Program. We can expect to see some really cool stuff coming this spring and summer.
According to Business Wire Activision and Crayola will be releasing unique Skylanders-branded color and activity formats. The specialty line will include Crayola’s signature formats including Color Wonder, Giant Coloring Pages and Xtreme Coloring, among other new platforms and will be available this holiday at top retail channels worldwide.
Also, starting in June, a new promotion with General Mills will release Skylanders-shaped Fruit Flavored Snacks to fans all over North America. This relationship marks Activision’s first entry into the category and will bring six character favorites, including Chompy, Gill Grunt, Jet Vac, Kaos, Stealth Elf and Eruptor to grocery stores, supermarkets, drug stores and mass market retailers.
We can also expect to see more from previous licensee companies such as POWER A (Carrying Cases & Game Accessories), Mad Dog Concepts (Sleepwear), ABG Accessories (Headwear & Cold Weather), Thermos (Lunch Kits & FUNtainers™), FAB (Backpacks & School Supplies), PTI (Easter), American Greetings (Party Goods & Supplies) and Rubie’s Costumes (Halloween) in 2014.
