I went to collect the mail and noticed I had a surprise package from Activision I didn’t know what it was, but boy was I stoked to see what it was when I opened the package. Check out what was inside…
Yes! Love Potion Pop Fizz the official Valentine’s Day Skylanders Toy for Skylanders Trap Team. So have you been wondering how Pop Fizz turned into Love Potion Pop Fizz? Well I happen to have to scoop…
It is said that when his latest attempt to concoct the ultimate raspberry soda totally backfired, Pop Fizz was caught in a blast that turned him pink and gave him an alluring aroma. At least that’s how he tells it. But with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the Skylanders are wondering if Pop Fizz is telling the truth… or if there is a special someone who he is trying to impress.
I wonder who Pop Fizz could be trying to get some affection from? Guess we will have to wait and see. Currently Target is the only retailer with it shelved, but Best Buy will release him on 02/01 and Toys R Us on 02/07. For all our UK readers he can also be pre-ordered at your local GAME store. Good Luck Hunting! Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Yesterday was the huge release of Skylanders Trap Team here in the US. Australian Portal Masters were the first to get their hands on the new game. Pictures and videos galore have popped up and the consensus is Portal Masters are in love with this game! I got this press release yesterday would have posted it sooner, but I was out hunting; I had a blast! by the way. Check out where everything is and what is exclusive to what store officially from the horse’s mouth.
If you haven’t gotten out and grabbed the game get out to your local retailer, take advantage of these promotions and get a copy today! I promise you won’t regret it. For those of you that went out like me and couldn’t find the Kaos single pack trap it won’t be officially released until tomorrow Oct 7th at Toys R Us. A little frustrated because now I’m broke and will have to wait for wave 2 😦 Oh well will make hunting more fun when I can get them 😉 Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Today was a good day for us Portal Masters and Addicts with Nitro Freeze Blade being released today at Target. Unfortunately, there were no Nitro Magna Charge figures in site. Wonder what is happing with that? Hopefully we will see him turn up soon. He looks so cool! We will be releasing a new video soon with our buddy Bryan over at Bryan’s Toy Haven. So stay tuned to get a look at Nitro Freeze Blade during his hunting video.
For those of you still looking for the Easter Edition Skylanders Walmart stores have been getting shipments of them in all across the US. They have been selling out pretty fast as some of you have seen, but don’t worry if you haven’t gotten them yet. Toys R Us will be releasing them on Tuesday 3/25/14 so here is another chance at grabbing them. Remember Best Buy hasn’t had any in store as of yet, so you will still have another shot if you miss them at TRU. Good Luck and Happy Hunting! Hope to see more pics of what you guys scored. Post a picture of your score on our Facebook page ( link is below ) we love pictures! 🙂 Catch you on the SKYSIDE!

It’s your friendly neighborhood Skylander Addict here with some more rumors about wave 4. Could they be true? Well, that is the point of rumors isn’t? Putting us on edge hoping and praying that what is said is totally true??? As much as some people hate rumors they are what fuel social media outlets everywhere. Some of us can’t wait to hear the next hot piece of juicy gossip. So much that we will start our own rumors and state them as true hence why we have so many tabloids and urban legends.
Well to celebrate the spirit of good old rumors here are a few that may tickle your fancy…
Some Portal Masters have seen some really cool displays show up in Walmart stores with the Easter Skylanders on them. We haven’t physically seen any of them stocked in the displays, but we have seen some wave 4 core figures like Fire Bone Hot Dog and Scratch as well LightCore Enchanted Star Strike appear in these displays at locations here in the US. SpringTime Trigger Happy has been sighted on the West Coast. So keep your eyes peeled as it looks we just may get an Easter surprise early.
Jade Fire Kraken is coming soon!
There where a few rumors and speculations Jade Fire Kraken being released on St. Patrick’s Day at Target like Jade FlashWing was with last years Giants release. So much for that theory because as we all know there was no release at all for Jade Fire Kraken. Now that is not to say that he isn’t going to turn up soon we just don’t know when as of yet. But we do know that Jade Fire Kraken will not I REPEAT WILL NOT! be a Target exclusive
Doom Stone was suppose to be released with this latest wave.
When I called one of my local Toys R Us stores to ask about wave 4 swappers and core figures the sales associated informed me they had just gotten there shipment of swappers but no new core figures or Doom Stone. He said that they where suppose to be getting Doom Stone in this wave but never got him. Don’t know if he was removed from this wave and saved for a later release or if this is complete utter BS and the TRU employee just didn’t know what he was talking about. I have since checked with some of my other sources and they have heard nothing, so I’m going with BS.
Nitro Freeze Blade and Nitro Magna Charge are coming to Target tomorrow.
EHHHHHHHH! Wrong! We may see some stores putting them up on the shelf, but the register has them locked so they can’t be sold until Sunday 3/23/14. Which isn’t to bad at least we will be able to get them this weekend so we can get a little excited… Ok a lot of excited lol!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!
Last but certainly not least our final rumor and biggest one of them all!
Skylander Addicts is shut down!
I was asked by a few people if the Skylander Addicts store page is closed. Well it is but just for now it will be back eventually just right now I am working towards giving you nothing but entertaining and up to the minute info about your favorite Skylanders and other HOT Toys! We still will continue to help our readers try to finish up there collections the shop just won’t be open for the time being. I would like to say to everyone that has shown me and Skylander Addicts their support from the bottom of my heart thank you very much. I have a lot of stuff planned for the future, so get comfy, find a spot to SKYLAX on this crazy airship I call a blog, and enjoy the ride! 🙂
By the way, if you still are looking for Wave 4 Core Skylanders you may want to call your local Toys R Us. I heard from fellow addict GrowUpKids that they had Scratch, Fire Bone Hot Dog, Turbo Jet Vac, and Fryno at his local store. Good Luck!

Oh yeah! If you are like me you have been standing on pins and needles anticipating when the next wave would be released and who would be in it. Well the wait is over! According to Irate Gamer and a few other blog sites Best Buy has put wave 4 up for pre-order online.
You can get Fryno, Punk Shock, and Springtime Trigger Happy for only $9.99. Not only are we getting a new wave, we also are getting new packaging with this wave. With Easter coming the packaging is shaped like eggs and the color matches the element, which the Skylander is associated with. I can’t wait until these guys are on my portal Trigger Happy looks so freaking BOOMtastic! Check out the pictures and get your pre-order in today! Catch you on the SKYside!
So I pre-ordered the Swap-Force Best Buy Exclusive Heavy Duty Sprocket when I saw that she was available. I was very pleased with the transaction not only did I get a variant at a good price, but the pre-order came early as well. If you ordered this awesome figure then you may have gotten the same email I received when you chose the in store pick up option. The delivery date was scheduled for 1/12/14, but it arrived at the store 2 days early on 1/10/14. I picked her up yesterday and there was a little trouble finding my order but it was found with huge nametag stickers on the back. Man was it an eye sour but I was able to peel the stickers off without a problem so I wasn’t to upset. I didn’t see any of the figures out on the shelf not sure why, but it seems like that store only got online orders or something (weird).
Ok so lets talk about the goods! First of all the packaging comes with the curved design we have seen with the other figures that have been released in this series.There is nothing special about the packaging it is the same as the one used to package the normal Series 2 Heavy Duty Sprocket figures. The card and sticker is the same as normal Series 2 Sprocket as well. The figure is very lite in weight, but it is well put together and had a solid paint job. The top half of the figure, which is Sprocket’s top half is painted in a bright silver metallic paint. The tank she rides in is painted a metallic green color almost the same color as the paint used for the Giants Series 2 Gill Grunt variant. The base is painted the same color silver as the top half and the bottom of the base is the signature ice blue color of this version of the series.
Unfortunately this variant doesn’t have the out of game appearance in game like the Halloween Edition Pumpkin Eye Brawl appearing as normal Eye-Brawl in game during play. It would have been nice to see it look the same as it does out of game in game, but it is still a really cool figure never the less. Heavy Duty Sprocket has pretty average stats; Attack: 80/200, Defense: 140/200, Speed: 50/200, and Luck: 50/200. Once she is upgraded I’m sure she will be one of you favorites to play with I know she is one of mine. Heavy Duty Sprocket is available at most Best Buy stores exclusively for $9.99* (local sales tax applicable), so call your local store before you go out and see if they have any in stock or you can cruise over to the ever so convenient bestbuy.com and do a free in-store pick-up or have her shipped right to your door.
To get a better look at Best Buy Heavy Duty Sprocket Variant check out the photos in the gallery. Well I hope you enjoyed the review catch you on the SKYSIDE! Good Luck hunting Addicts & Portal Masters.
I am in no way affiliated with Best Buy nor was I paid for this blog post.
I’m just a crazy collector that likes to write about what I like… and don’t like.
Oh Boy Oh Boy! I have some great news! Like most of you probably have been wondering when is Best Buy going to have a variant as they were apart of the game during previous releases. Swap-Force has been released and Best Buy has been pretty much silent except for the projector wrist bands they where giving away during the release of the game. Well, wait no more because as of 1/12/13 (projected release date) There will be a variant of series 2 Sprocket! Now I’m not sure if this will be an in game variant or just a painted one, but still cool never the less. She is up for pre-order right now on there website so I would go and get yours RIGHT NOW! Check out the pic below she is a beauty. I just put in my order hope to see a lot of Portal Masters and Addicts get there hands on her as well. Good luck everyone hope you don’t have to much trouble trying to score one of these bad boys! I’m getting ready for Skylanders Day at Game Stop more info on that in another post. Catch you guys on SKYSIDE!
The other day my friend Stacy and I were having a conversation about Polar Whirlwind and the release of wave 4. We were talking about the McDonalds rumor and how funny it would be to get Polar Whirlwind in a happy meal. Then we started thinking wouldn’t it be cool if McDonalds did a Skylanders Happy Meal Toy? They would be little collectors figures that don’t work on the portal, but still would be cool non-the less.
We then wondered where we would be seeing Polar Whirlwind once it is released. Since Toys R Us has Legendary LightCore Chill, Wal-mart has Molten Hot Dog, Target has Jade FlashWing, and GameStop has the single pack regular S2 Hot Dog as well as S2 Spyro and S2 Wrecking Ball, who is left? Best Buy that’s who!
They were a big part of the series being sold, have had exclusive variants before, and haven’t made much noise as of yet. So, we are thinking that is where Polar WhirlWind will be or Scarlett Ninjini since she isn’t released yet either or maybe she will be an amazon.com exclusive was our other thought.
Discussing this topic also brought up two other questions.
Question 1: When are the S2 Sidekicks being released?
Question 2: Where the heck is S2 Drobot?
Well we figure Frito Lay will do another promotion this spring sometime seeing as the first promo went so well. As for S2 Drobot his picture is up on the GameStop website, so we figure he will be there as well with S2 Spyro and S2 Wrecking Ball he just hasn’t become available yet.
This past week has been an amazing week and it looks like this is going to be an even better easter holiday with the siting of Skylanders Easter Eggs at Wal-Mart and the full release of Wave 4. And we can’t forget about the new Mega Bloks Sets and Mega Bloks Skylanders Weapons coming out that have been popping up on the west coast at Fred Meyers.
I myself already have the new Chrome Spyro and Blue Bash Sets. There also is a new commercial up on the Mega Bloks Youtube channel showing the new battle figures and the Eye Brawl Zepplin! If you haven’t seen it check it out!
What are your thoughts on where we willing be seeing the new releases?
