Beginner’s Guide To Collecting Skylanders Holiday And Seasonal Variants


Hey Addicts!

A little while back Activision announced the release of more holiday variants Frightful Fiesta just in time for the Halloween season and Happy (Easter Bunny) Thrillipede.

 

 

skylanderaddictsblog

skylanderaddictsblog

Which got me to thinking about all the holiday variants that have been released thus far. Some were not well accepted and had become shelf warmers, while others are in the rare and hard to find category.

I decided to put together a quick reference guide for all of you that are just jumping into the Skylanders universe and or just maybe wondering how many holiday variants have been released thus far.

So without further ado I present to you Skylander Addicts Beginner’s Guide To Collecting Skylanders Holiday And Seasonal Variants.

 

Variant

So what is a variant? A variant is a version or form of something that differs in some way from other forms of the same thing.

Comic books, magazines, toys and even food products have been known to have different flavors or packaging of the same product.

For example for those of you that have been reading the Skylanders comic book series you have noticed that there are always two different covers with every issue. One is the regular cover and the other is the variant cover.

 

skylanderaddictsblog

Regular Cover

skylanderaddictsblog

Variant Cover

skylanderaddictsblog

Con Exclusive Variant Cover

Normally there is no difference content wise between the books. They are just done in different color schemes, are drawn by different artists, or have some sort of theme/gimmick attached to them.

 

Holiday Variant

A holiday variant is a variant that has a holiday theme attached to it. For example Halloween Oreo’s they are just regular Oreo’s with orange cream and Halloween packaging making it a variant or holiday edition of Oreos.

Seasonal Variant

A seasonal variant is very similar to a holiday variant sometimes a holiday variant is also considered a seasonal variant. A seasonal variant has a seasonal theme attached to it. For example Football, Baseball, winter, spring, etc. you get the point.

Skylanders Holiday and Seasonal variants began with the Giants series and have been apart of the franchise since. Below is a list of all the holiday variants that have been released thus far.

 

Pumpkin Eye Brawl

skylanderaddictsblog

Pumpkin Eye-Brawl was released late after the Giants game was released. It is labeled as a Halloween Edition figure, but it was released in early September right before Swap-Force was released.

It was the first holiday variant introduced to the Skylanders series. This figure was available in most stores and was said to have a limited quantity, but for some reason it lingered around for a while after its release.

Personally I think it was because it is not an in-game variant meaning the variant figure does not show up as a variant in the Skylanders game. Instead it looks like regular Eye-Brawl but is listed as a special figure when placed into play.

Easter Edition Legendary Lightcore Chill

easter-edition-legendary-lightcore-chill

 

This was the first Easter Edition figure released only overseas in the UK. The only difference between this version and the regular version is the packaging. The figure is exactly the same as the one released at Toys R Us stores.

This figure is very hard to find. The only way to add this figure to your collection is by trading with another collector or finding it online by chance.

Halloween/Pumpkin Fright Rider

skylanderaddictsblog

 

Halloween or Pumpkin Fright Rider was apart of the Skylanders Frito-Lay promotion. To take part in the promotion you had to acquire a game code by way of purchasing a specially marked bag of Frito Lays chips or requesting a game code by way of self-addressed stamped envelope.

It was pretty much impossible to not win a figure when the promotion started. After a bunch of people leaked code info and the codes became available to pretty much anybody winning became a lot harder.

If you didn’t get your hands on one of these during the promotion the only way to get one now is from a third-party seller and some of them are asking for crazy prices so shop at your discretion as always.

 

Jolly Bumble Blast

skylanderaddictsblog

Jolly Bumble Blast was the Swap Force holiday variant released during Christmas of 2013. It was available at all retailers, but there was a very limited quantity.

When it was originally released it was easy to add him to your collection. Now that it has sold out in stores you will have to go the second-hand route.

 

Springtime Trigger Happy

skylanderaddictsblog

Springtime Trigger Happy was included in the first seasonal/holiday set of variants released in the Swap Force series. This figure hit stores Easter of 2014 along with Fryno and Punk Shock.

It was not a store exclusive so it was readily available on shelves of different retailers.

 

Flocked Springtime Trigger Happy

skylanderaddictsblog

Now this is a gem in the Skylanders world. This is one special variant for a few reasons. It was first brought to our attention as a Target promotion in Australia.

They gave away 25 of them. It later was a Toys R Us promotion in the US with only one figure per store. Some stores didn’t even receive it! If you were lucky enough to get it in store you were one happy camper that day.

The coolest thing about this figure besides it being fuzzy is that it’s the first variant of a variant. No other figure like it has been released since. A boxed version of this figure has also been spotted.

 

Easter/Spring Edition Fryno

skylanderaddictsblog

There is nothing special about this figure except the packaging. He looks exactly like the figure that was released in the regular Swap Force packaging. You can still find these hanging around in some Walgreens and 5 Below stores.

 

Easter/Spring Edition Punk Shock

 

skylanderaddictsblog

Released along side Springtime Trigger Happy and Fryno this figure only appeared in store in its Easter package for a long time. It later was released in a regular single pack. If you are a completest you probably own them both (I know I do). She recently has been found in her regular packaging at 5 Below stores.

 

Kickoff Countdown

 

skylanderaddictsblog

Kickoff Countdown was a variant that came out during the 2014 World Cup.

This is not a holiday variant, but instead it is a seasonal variant not really much of a difference though as they both celebrate something.

When this variant was first released they were everywhere heck here in Ohio you may still find a straggler lying around, but for the most part they can only be found in the second-hand market.

 

Winterfest Lobstar

skylanderaddictsblog

Winterfest Lobstar was the first holiday/seasonal figure released with Trap Team. He is the Christmas variant as most of you can guess from the name. Surprisingly he was a shelf warmer for a little while not sure why as it a really cool variant.

Maybe it was because he isn’t a very popular character. He is the only Trap Master to receive a Holiday make over in the series.

 

Love Potion Pop Fizz

skylanderaddictsblog

This figure was released to celebrate Valentines Day of 2015. This is one of my favorite variants I love the color scheme and it just fit the character perfectly.

You can still find this figure in store at Toys R Us and other retailers like Walmart, but not heavily in stock so get it while you can.

 

Eggscellent Weeruptor

skylanderaddictsblog

 

This is my favorite of all the variants for a few reasons one I love the fire element and two Weeruptor is freaking awesome! The colors used on this variant and the name was an instant win in my book.

This figure was released in a set including Power Punch Pet Vac (another mini) and a trap to celebrate spring and the 2015 Easter Holiday, so this is both a seasonal and holiday variant.

Not only are the figures and trap different they also come in a special Easter themed packaging. These were not exclusive to any store when they were released. You may get super lucky and find a stray hanging around somewhere, but your best bet in finding this is on EBay or Amazon.

 

Power Punch Pet Vac

skylanderaddictsblog

 

As I stated above this is the other mini released in the spring/Easter set. He was thought be released in a red and gold color scheme from the promotional image that was posted online.

We got a surprise when it officially released as it was not red and gold, but red and black. Many of us wondered why they chose to change the colors it is still a mystery to this day. Power Punch and Eggscellent are the only minis to receive a variant makeover.

 

Earth/Bunny Trap

skylanderaddictsblog

 

This is the only trap to receive a holiday/seasonal variant makeover in the Trap Team series. Colored to look like a bunny this was the coolest trap to be released next to the legendary traps. I would say that this is a hard to find item now but when it was released they were everywhere.

Well folks we have come to the end of the road. I hope this helps you out in some way, shape or form. I’ll be adding this info to a reference page in the future so that you can use it at anytime and not have to scroll through posts or look through the archives.

Dark Edition Wii Starters And Dark Bowser Exclusive To Toys R Us


skylanderaddictsblog.com

Hey Addicts!

A few weeks ago the Dark Edition starter packs were announced at SDCC all the starter packs went up for sale that week except the Wii Starters. It had some of us thinking it would be region locked or that a Wii version was not being made. I kept trying to reassure some of you that there would indeed be a starter pack for the Wii console’s I just hadn’t figured out why they were not available yet until now.

skylanderaddicts

Recently Toys R Us announced that the Dark Edition Wii Starters and Dark Bowser would be exclusive to Toys R Us stores. See good things come to those who wait 🙂

If you are a completest like myself or you have a crazy Amiibo addiction like most of us Amiibo collectors then you will want to get your hands on this one before they are gone.

Until Next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Bowser And DK Get A Dark Make-Over Skylanders Style! Plus New Eon’s Elite Figures!


skylanderaddictsHey Addicts!

As you may have read from my earlier post that we were expecting some sort of announcement today about the release of a Dark Starter Pack for Skylanders Superchargers. What we didn’t expect was this!

skylanderaddicts skylanderaddicts

Yes! we will be getting  Dark Versions of Donkey Kong & Bowser with Dark versions of their vehicles as well as what is referred to as a Kaos Trophy, which will be the only way to unlock special Kaos gameplay content . Here is what the official press release had to say about this momentous occasion:

skylanderaddictsSKYLANDERS® SUPERCHARGERS SHIFTS INTO HIGH GEAR

AT COMIC-CON® INTERNATIONAL: SAN DIEGO 2015

Attendees among First in the World to Play 

Skylanders SuperChargers Dark Edition,

Including Dark Versions of Donkey Kong™ & Bowser™,

and Check out Collectible Toy Line Eon’s Elite

 

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – July 7, 2015 – Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), is supercharging Comic-Con International: San Diego 2015 with Skylanders, the world’s leading Toys-to-Life and now Vehicles-to-Life videogame franchise.  Activision will reveal the new Skylanders® SuperChargers Dark Edition at the convention where attendees will be among the first consumers in the world to play the game with dark versions of the Starter Pack characters, including Dark Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and his Dark Barrel Blaster land vehicle; Dark Hammer Slam Bowser and his Dark Clown Cruiser sky vehicle; and Skylanders fan-favorite Stealth Elf in a new Dark version.  As an extra bonus, fans can pre-order the Skylanders SuperChargersDark Edition Starter Pack at the Skylanders booth #121 and Xbox Lounge in the Manchester Grand Hyatt.  North American fans who can’t make it to the convention can pre-order online beginning today at major retailers while supplies last.  Skylanders Comic-Con offerings also include a first-look at the highly collectible figures from the all-new Eon’s Elite lineup, as well as the popular franchise-inspired comic book series, Mad Libs and costumes.

The Skylanders SuperChargers Dark Edition includes unique toys that true Portal Masters will want in their collections.  All Dark Edition Starter Packs will be available for a suggested retail price of $99.99 and include Dark Spitfire, Dark Hot Streak, a two-sided ultimate collector poster and the highly sought-after Kaos Trophy, which is the only way to unlock special Kaos gameplay content.

Dark Super Shot Stealth Elf and Dark Sea Shadow will be available exclusively in the Dark Edition Starter Packs for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4. The Wii U™ Dark Edition Starter Pack will include Dark Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and Dark Barrel Blaster, exclusively. A different, unique adventure including Dark Hammer Slam Bowser and Dark Clown Cruiser will be made available on Nintendo’s Wii™ system.

Yes you read that right we will also be seeing some new Eon Elite Characters! There are six new Eon’s Elite Characters being released, but there has been a change in what retailer will be carrying them. Toy R Us will be stocking shelves this time with the 1st Wave will consist of 3 characters (Voodood, Zook, and Slam Bam) beginning in November. The 2nd Wave will include the remaining 3 characters ( Ghost Roaster, Boomer, and Dino-Rang) and will be released in December. Notice that there are only six of the forgotten 8 included in the Series 2 run of Elite’s.

skylanderaddicts

Does that mean we may see the last two at special events or with a Frito Lay competition or two? I’m praying they release the other two as well (On knees crying out to the Skylanders Gods!). They will be priced at $19.99 each which is cheaper than the $24.99 price tag GameStop has with the first series. Guess that means we will see a price drop in the first run of figures at GameStop that is good news for us that still need them. Here is more from the press release:

“This year Skylanders, the original toys-to-life franchise, gets a boost of high-octane gameplay and innovation by bringing toy vehicles to life for kids with SkylandersSuperChargers,” said John Coyne, senior vice president of consumer marketing, Activision Publishing, Inc.  “We look forward to fans checking out our Dark Edition and Eon’s Elite offerings for the first time at San Diego Comic-Con.”

Eon’s Elite is a premium toy line offering fans the ultimate versions of some of the most iconic heroes from the game that started it all, Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure®. Each hero is powered up to three times the normal level and updated with premium decorations, new poses and unique sculpts that represent how they appear in their fully upgraded form. The figures are presented in premium packaging featuring a display case with a 3-D lenticular background, making them truly collectible items.  This year’s fan-favorite roster includes Voodood, Zook, Slam Bam, Ghost Roaster, Boomer and Dino-Rang and will be available for a suggested retail price of $19.99. The first wave of Eon’s Elite characters — Slam Bam, Zook and Voodood — are Toys”R”Us exclusives and will be available starting November. The second wave of heroes, Ghost Roaster, Boomer and Dino-Rang, will be available in December.

Skylanders Game Teases Fans With Dark News


Hey Addicts!

Some of you may have missed this yesterday so I thought that I would post about it here. The Skylanders Game released a few images on their social media sites the first image (see below) was posted on the Skylanders Italy fan page with the caption:

Attenti Padroni dei Portali, qualcosa di molto oscuro si sta avvicinando…

skylanderaddicts

When translated the caption pretty much reads: “Beware Portal Masters! Something really dark is coming…”

Later the same day the UK Skylanders game page posted this image (see below) with this caption:

skylanderaddicts

We’ve got a dark, dark secret to unveil tomorrow. What could this mean, Portal Masters?
You know us, we can’t keep a secret quiet for long – Drop back tomorrow afternoon for an exclusive look…

SDCC is this week and if you remember at last year’s event Activision announced the release of the Trap Team Dark Starter packs. I assume that the same thing will happen again this year with Superchargers.

What will we see in the starter packs?

Well from the looks of things we will be getting 2 Dark vehicles (see images below) and some sort of Kaos item not sure what it is, but my guess is that it will be a dark version of the Kaos Doomstation.

 

 

skylanderaddicts

 

 

skylanderaddicts

 

Will we also get Dark Skylanders figures?

I am sure we will but they have just not been unveiled yet, but from the images we can assume that there will be dark versions of Spitfire and Nightfall since we are getting there vehicles. I will do an update post once I get more information.

I hope you enjoy all the images, take a min to share us with your friends, tell me what you think about this any questions or concerns, and until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

MAILLLLLLL! Surprise Package


Hey Addicts!

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!

 

Super Boomtastic Sale at Toys R Us UK


Evening Skylander Addicts! Got a bit of info for our UK readers.

11722_10205216688404251_9146391617335927407_n

The first thing I noticed at my local store was that there was a nice amount of light and dark element packs in stock. If you still need one contact your local store you may get lucky. They also have a ton of traps in stock as you can see in the image.

1454725_10205216688764260_830607195429016676_n

I then saw that the Skylanders Swap Force Island Fun-Play Hide-Away Play-sets are on clearance at £17.99 that is a steal! The Swap Force Flynn’s Airship Play-set is £14.99 another great bargain if you’re looking for one!!

10953242_10205216688524254_3683968239641654017_n

The best deal of the day for me was being able to take advantage of the 7 inch Android Swap Force Tablet sale. They are on clearance for ONLY £19.99!!! Such a great deal I had to grab one for me self and the wife.

10957358_10205216689004266_7636603218142421858_n

Skylanders Trap Team Easter Edition Figures Coming Soon…


Eggscellent Weeruptor

Eggscellent Weeruptor

Hey Addicts!

As I mentioned in the last post this years easter edition figures have been revealed. According to myskylanders.de and darkspyro.net user Chaotic Lunacy we can expect another villain variant trap this easter. Red Hot Tussle Sprout is said to be a TRU exclusive with a release date of March 2, 2015. Also there will be an “Easter Edition” figure pack including Power Punch Pet-Vac, Eggscellent Weeruptor, and an exclusive Earth Easter Trap.

power-punch-pet-vac

Power Punch Pet-Vac

 

Chaotic Lunacy states that Red Hot Tussle Sprout will be the included trap in the easter edition pack, but myskylanders.de states that Red Hot will be its own trap and an exclusive Easter Edition earth trap will be included in the figure pack. The easter edition rings up at 10.99, but  I am thinking that the $10.99 price is for the Exclusive Variant Trap with RHTS and not the easter edition figure packs. I think that the earth trap will be a separate trap much like the Legendary Traps (no trapped villain just an easter colored trap) included with Power Punch and Weeruptor.

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 5.58.11 PM

The release date is also March 2, 2015 at TRU for Power Punch Pet-Vac and Eggscellent Weeruptor so get ready folks cause it’s about to be on!I project that these will go fast just like the other easter edition figures that have been released in the past. Are you as excited about this as I am? I sure hope so! Keep an eye out for the easter edition figure packs as they may get an early release by another store trying to beat TRU to the punch. Enjoy the rest of the images in the gallery and until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Skylanders Trap Team Wave 4 Revealed


Hey Addicts!

Got some awesome news from the folks over at myskylanders.de. Today they released a complete list of what we can expect to see hit stores when wave 4 comes and I’m pretty amped about a few things that are coming. Since their site is in German I took the liberty of translating it for you guys as best I could so here it goes.

We are looking at a projected date of wave 4 being released sometime in March. I’m not sure if that is the US release or if that is the projected date for overseas Portal Masters, but either way that’s good news to me. Looks like there will be six core Skylanders coming in wave 4 included are:

Core Skylanders

  • Echo-Water Element
  • Rocky Roll-Earth Element
  • Spotlight- Light Element
  • Blackout-Dark Element
  • High Five-Life Element
  • Batspin-Undead Element

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Glad to see we will finally see High Five and Batspin hit US stores I’m super pumped to get my hands on Spotlight and Blackout they look awesome and I bet they play just as well as they look if not better. Two of the most anticipated Skylanders Trap Masters will finally be making appearance in this wave along with Single pack versions of the Light and Dark Trap Masters.

Trap Masters

  • Short Cut
  • Thunderbolt
  • Knightmare
  • Knightlight

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I just realized about a week ago that Short Cut was a Trap Master. I was already excited to add him to my collection when I first saw him, but after finding out he was a Trap Master I wanted him even more. Thunderbolt looks so BOSS he is definitely a must have for me I want to see how well he plays his attacks look sick! We will be seeing another wave of traps as well included are:

Traps

  • Rocket Light Trap
  • Rocket Magic Trap
  • Sword Shadow Trap
  • Sword Air Trap
  • Sword Life Trap
  • Upside Down Guy Shadow Trap
  • Upside Down Guy Earth Trap
  • Spear Fire Trap
  • Spear UndeadTrap
  • Axe Water Trap
  • Kaos Trap

Also listed are 2 Triple Pack Trap Packs do not know what will included in the packs, but I’m sure it will be the same as it has been released in earlier waves as a way to save a little cash and get more traps. Those of you that do not have a Kaos trap (I need another one) will have another chance at getting this hard to get trap before it becomes unavailable again. I’m sure there will be more Kaos traps in the wave but you still will want to get to your local stores early when they go on sale.

There are two new mini packs coming as well included in these packs are:

Mini Skylanders

  • Pet Vac (Jet-Vac)-Air Element
  • Breeze (Whirlwind)-Air Element
  • Barkley (Tree Rex)-Life Element
  • Whisper Elf (Stealth Elf)-Life Element

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We will also see more of Mini Pack 5 (Gill Runt & Thumpling) and Mini Pack 6 (Small Fry & Weeruptor). There are some things expected to be released as well but not in wave 4 they will have their own separate releases or come in a mini wave. We already know about Nitro Head Rush, Legendary Bush Whack, and Love Potion Pop Fizz, but who else is coming? Here is a list of things we should see from now until at least April.

  • Enigma
  • Gearshift
  • Flip Wreck
  • Fling Kong
  • Triple Pack (Deja Vu / Rocky Roll / echo)
  • Triple Pack (Blackout / Fling Kong / Pop Fizz)
  • King Cobra Cadabra
  • Gnarly Barkley
  • Yawn Trap
  • Praise Goblin (Trap Variant)
  • Steampunk Shrednought (Trap Variant)
  • Eon’s Elite: Eruptor & Gill Grunt

I’m glad to see Gear Shift will be getting another run she is still around in some stores, but it will make her more available for those of us that haven’t gotten her yet (I need another one of her too lol). I so hope Enigma comes out in a mini wave-like a 4.5 or something I have to have him on my portal asap! Also mentioned in the article are the Easter Edition Trap Team figures, but I’m going to do a separate post about these as I feel they deserve to have a post just about them. I do not have an exact release date on any of this stuff just projected dates or a figure and trap case break down or anything like that, but when I get the info trust and believe I’ll be letting you know. Take a minute to show us some love on our social sites I love to see what new things you all are adding to your collections, game tips, or just shoot the breeze (Pun intended). Thanks to MySkylanders.De for giving us this awesome info. Happy Hunting All! Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

GameStop Releases Kaos Trap Bundle Pack


 

kaos-trap-package

Hey Addicts!

If you didn’t already know this happened… GameStop has released 3 different Kaos Trap Bundle packs. Each bundle comes with a Kaos Trap, Water Trap and depending on what bundle you choose a Magic, Earth, or Life Trap. Each bundle is priced at $17.97 and is available online only.

Unfortunately the bundles have sold out, so for those of you that are still looking for a Kaos Trap bookmark the link and check it periodically to see if it is available again. Here are the links to all 3 bundles:
