It is that time of year once again. Great food, family, and presents under the tree are great things to get excited about, but what I’m most excited about is getting more Skylanders. Activision and it’s affiliates want to make sure that portal masters around the world get the perfect Skylanders gift this holiday season. In order to make that possible they are release a bunch of merchandise with sales galore. According to the press release I received this morning
Skylands is abuzz with the holiday spirit and ready to supercharge kids’ holiday wish lists with special toys, a newSkylanders® SuperChargers Racing Action Pack, Skylanders merchandise, BlackFriday deals and more.
Activision Publishing is kick starting the season by releasing a special holiday variant Missile Tow Dive Clops.

Also available for the holiday season at Toys”R”Us® stores nationwide and online at www.Toysrus.com is the premium toy line Eon’s Elite, including fan-favorite characters Slam Bam, Zook and Voodood, as well as a new set of heroes — Ghost Roaster, Boomer and Dino-Rang — available first at Toys”R”Us beginning onNovember 29 ($19.99 MSRP).

Skylanders Superchargers is definitely going to be a hot item this season!
Skylanders SuperChargers has been named to the Toys”R”Us 2015 Hot Holiday Toy List, the Amazon Holiday Toy List and Toy Insider’s Hot 20 Holiday Toys List. Fans won’t want to miss out on special BlackFriday deals on Skyanders SuperChargers Starter Packs, offered at $39.99 MSRP at participating retailers.“Every year, the Skylanders franchise has produced innovative products that our customers love, including this year’s newest addition, Skylanders SuperChargers.” said Richard Barry, Executive Vice President, Global Chief Merchandising Officer, Toys”R”Us, Inc. “We are pleased to offer fans the broadest assortment of Skylanders merchandise this holiday season, to ensure they find the perfect present to put under the Christmas tree.”
This may be old news to you all that follow tons of groups like me, but for those of you that haven’t heard the news a new variant has popped up on Ebay. This variant is also a patina so we now have 2 of this particular variant to be on the hunt for. The first being the High Volt variant which not many of us have been lucky enough to find in the wild. The newest variant release is Patina Lava Lance Eruptor.
I am hoping that I will get my hands on one of these guys, but I’ve only seen chase figures in the wild one time and have never since gotten the chance to again (I am hopeful). Are you a chaser? Do you own any chase figures? If you could have any chase figure what would it be?
I wonder who will be the next patina variant? Will it be another Skylander or will it be a vehicle? I kind of would like to see a patina version of the Shark Tank. What vehicle would you like to see get a patina makeover? Well that’s it for now folks be sure to follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and show us some love on Instagram. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

I cannot count the number of times I’ve been let down by the miscellaneous adventure packs. Until now, the ultimate adventure pack was Swap Force’s Tower of Time. Meanwhile Sheep Wreck Island and last year’s Midnight Museum were also highlights. The Sea Racing Action Pack is a new standard on which all Action/Adventure Packs should be judged
Before we get to the additional content the game adds, let’s talk about Deep Dive Gill Grunt and Reef Ripper. This is the fourth iteration of Gill Grunt, and seeing him again, I wasn’t particularly excited. Between the metallic variation and the sidekick Gill Runt, who needs a seventh Gill Grunt?
Well I’m happy to report that Deep Dive Gill Grunt is wildly different from his previous incarnations. Deep Dive Gill Grunt emphasizes trident attacks and his ability to levitate off the grand via a wave. Both of these are viable attacks. The trident attack is one of the fastest attacks in the game.. Meanwhile, his wave levitation not only deals a lot of damage, but it gives Gill Grunt excellent maneuverability. It’s nice to see a Skylander who can close the gap between himself and enemies with both speed and sufficiency.
As for his talent skill trees, Deep Dive Gill Grunt is another huge win. I actually had a hard time making a decision about which path to follow. In one instance, Storm Summoner making his trident more powerful by fusing it with lightning. That said, Torrent Tamer gives his wave more range and damage. Both skill trees are amazing, but no matter which skill tree you choose, the subsequent damage and viability is a massive boon that’s hard to compare. This is the best Gill Grunt has ever been, and he is now one of the top tier water Skylanders in the game.
As for Reef Ripper, it’s a viable water craft with excellent mods. Its singular attack is decent, but nothing to write home about; however, the area of effect damage attack is pretty spectacular. In 360 degree water sections, Reef Ripper is devastating. It fends of enemies with ease, while in racing mode, it shines when enemies cluster around you.
As for his Supercharger Mission, you’ll enjoy this tough mission of trying to catch fish. As players race around the Golden Temple, they have to acquire fish of different values. While it’s easy to score the 1 and 2 star victories, most players will have a tough time getting that elusive third star (100k points). It’s one of the best missions from what players have seen so far.
With all that in mind, I cannot emphasize enough how amazing these two figurines look. Gill Grunt is the first Skylander, in series history, to make his base a part of the figurine. It’s one of the smartest and coolest designs ever conceived. But that’s nothing when compared to Reef Ripper.
Reef Ripper is a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Captain Nemo inspired vehicle. You need to hold his figurine to appreciate its quality. Aesthetically, it’s gorgeous. But the swivel in the tale, the colors and the drill embellishments all stand out. This is Skylanders crowning achievement in design. Both Gill Grunt and Reef Ripper are a benchmark on which all subsequent Skylander figurines shall be judged. It’s an extraordinary achievement.
The Additional Content
Unlike previous Skylander Adventure Packs which added in more content with levels, this time the Sea Racing Action Pack adds additional racing levels. The two additional levels are Tropic Plunder and The Golden Temple.
Tropic Plunder has players flying over volcanoes and diving under pirate ships, while the Golden Tower has players getting significant air time with frequent jumps and boosts. I love the additional levels, and while they’re not worth the price alone, they’re another excellent reason why the Sea Racing Action Pack is a worthy addition.
If you own Superchargers, buy the Sea Racing Action Pack. It might be the best additional content released to date. From a collector’s standpoint, Skylanders never looked better.

When Activision first announced that vehicles would be the gimmick of the latest installment of Skylanders I just knew RC racers would be coming it just made sense and I was right. The NYKO company who is responsible for making all kinds of third-party accessories for video games has teamed up with Activision and created some really awesome looking Skylanders Superchargers themed RC race cars.
So far only two of the race cars are available to order via GameStop’s online store. The RC cars look like the vehicles we play with in the game. The Skylander that owns the vehicle is seen in the driver’s seat for example Fiesta and Crypt Crusher are used in the game to create a Supercharged vehicle and they are also used to create these sweet looking RC racers. The other character available is Spitfire and Hot Streak. They are $29.99 each which isn’t to bad of a price for an RC, but what I want to know is how they function? Are they hard to control? Can they do tricks like some of the really cool RC racers? Are they durable? Kids will be crashing these things into walls left and right will they crumble after one or two crashes forcing us to have to get a replacement? Or will they stand the test of time?
I’m going to be getting both of these cars not only to review, but to play around with my son we both love toys and cars. Definitely will be having some fun with these. I am hoping that we don’t just get RC Race Cars, but also get a helicopters, planes, bikes and boats. That way we can also get a chance to use the Land, Sea, and Air concept with the RC’s. If you are interested in owning a set of these just click this trusty link right here (Fiesta) and here (Spitfire). Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
I know it has been a while since I have posted a video all kinds of technical difficulties have occurred, but I’m back hopefully without any more hitches. Check out the new unboxing video I posted to YouTube a little while ago I’m a little rusty, but I’ll get back into the swing of things. I’m going to be uploading more videos soon so stay tuned! Until then check out our contests on Facebook and Twitter maybe you will be one of our lucky winners! Catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Hello all how you lot keeping?
So this time round while I’ve been out hunting I came across a few error prints of the new “sky slicer” here’s a pic
As u can see it’s in the correct box it’s just the name that’s wrong!! In past years some collectors have went crazy for these ! Myself I’m undecided not to sure as to open it or keep it sealed. Are they going to be rare or common this time round with skylanders superchargers? I’m gonna say no not that rare as everything has been rushed to get ready for an early release this time round.
Here’s a pic I took while in store! I only bought 1 so there were still 2 left for others to buy.
Anyway it’s been nice to have a chat with you all again and share my new recent info even if it is just what I’ve found in my local store.
Until next time happy hunting and good luck chasing the chase figures if you are.
We now have
Gold Hot Streak
and Patina High Volt. Be sure to enter our Facebook and Twitter contests catch you later. #skylandersassist #skylanderaddicts
