In an unexpected turn of events Toys R Us released a small stock of Batspin and High Five Core Skylanders as well as the expected Red Hot Trap, Easter Edition Figures, and Wave 4 Traps, Trap Masters, and Cores. Some lucky Portal Masters have found Crystal Clear Variants in-store which is Boomtastic! Congrats to you that have. The shelves seemed pretty well stocked from the pictures I have seen. I couldn’t get out to take advantage of any of these awesome releases that have happened in the past few days. I hope to be able to get out this weekend and get some leftovers. I unfortunately think I will be SOL! 😦
I was really surprised to see Batspin & High-Five but was very happy to know that they have been released. I think they will be rare figures from this set like Hot Dog was for Swap-Force hopefully not. Looks like there are tons of Kaos Traps now so it won’t be so rare anymore. (Ha Take That Scalpers!) How many of you were finally able to add Kaos and the new figures to your collection? Show me what cha got! (I’m living vicariously through you all lol!)
Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Aura24 over at darkspyro.net posted gameplay footage of the new frito-lay skylanders as well as their catch phrases and back stories. The gameplay looks great! Flip-Wreck was a surprise for me he looks a lot cooler than I thought he would be. His wheel shield attack is freaking boss! Batspin and High Five also look amazing I love Batspins bat transformation attack and High Five’s dash attack looks really wicked. Check out the videos & images below I also included the back stories and catch phrases that were included in the post. Thanks to Aura24 for sharing this info and once again to Matteomax for the images. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Name: Bat Spin
Catch Phrase: No Rest For The Wicked! (one of Cynder’s battle cries)
Bat Spin hailed from the underworld, where as a child she was separated from her people. After spending months searching for them, she eventually was welcomed by a colony of magical bats who raised her as one of their own. After many peaceful years living with the bats, the colony was invaded by an army of undead trolls, who were set on stealing their magic to build an ultimate sonar weapon. Bat Spin quickly took action and used powerful abilities that she had learned growing up with the bats and essentially becoming one of them. She heroically defeated the trolls and saved the colony. This caught the attention of Master Eon, who saw at once she would make a worthy Skylander!
Name: Flip Wreck
Catch Phrase: Making Waves!
Most of the dolphins of Bottlenose Bay spent their days playing in the waves. However, Flip Wreck was different. Always the adventurous one, he took it upon himself to be a self-appointed protector of his undersea world. One day, while exploring an underwater graveyard of shipwrecks, he came across a massive Ice Viking ship that was still intact. Suddenly, a huge crew of Ice Vikings burst out from inside and began leading an attack on the unarmed dolphin residents. Flip Wreck took off at once and quickly fastened together armor, shield, and sword using pieces from the nearby wrecks. He then single-handedly defeated the Ice Vikings, who retreated never to be seen again. For his heroic actions, Flip Wreck was made a Skylander and now turns the tide against evil in Skylands!
Name: High Five
Catch Phrase: Buzz Off!
Growing up, High Five was one of the most skilled sky racers of all the dragonflies. But as the fifth son of the Royal High Flying Dragonflies, he was not allowed to enter any of the racing tournaments that took place each year because of his age. Instead he was forced to watch from the sidelines as his four older brothers competed for the coveted Trophy of Sparx, which legend has said holds magical properties. One year, during the biggest racing event of the season, High Five learned that the Troll Racing Team had stolen the valuable trophy and were going to use the race to cover their escape. He quickly took action, jumping into the race and using his amazing flying skills to weave and dodge his way to the front of the pack, where he caught up to the trolls and brought them down. For his actions, High Five was given the Trophy of Sparx. Even more importantly, he was made a Skylander, where he now helps protect Skylands from any evildoers!
