skylander-addicts-reviews-light-dark-expansion-packs

 

Hey Addicts!

Got another fun-filled episode of Skylander Addicts TV loaded up on YouTube. This time I’m reviewing the much-anticipated Light & Dark Expansion Packs. I decided to do this episode using Black Lights to celebrate the release of the Light and Dark Expansion Packs take a minute to look at how that turned out.

Well guys my Loot Crate just came in so I’m going to bust it open and see what I got. This months subscription has an exclusive Funko Pop! Vinyl in it can you say happier than a kid trapped in a candy store? 🙂 Hope you all enjoy the video… Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

 

Wave 3 Spotted At Target Stores On The West Coast


Hey Addicts

It seems that we may be getting Wave 3 Trap Masters & Core Skylanders along with the Light & Dark Expansion packs. Target stores on the West Coast have been said to have them stocked and ready to go at a few different locations. Toys R Us will be the only store with the Light & Dark expansion packs in the US as they have exclusivity for a few weeks. Quantities will be limited but don’t worry stores will begin getting more stock in after the holidays. If you just gotta have them though then I would be stalking the stores lol! I predict these are going to go very fast. Some Australian Portal Masters already have gotten their hands on Wave 3 figures as they are available now at Big W, EB, and Target. Tomorrow UK Portal Masters will be able to get their hands on Wave 3 but they will have to wait until January 16th to get the Light & Dark Expansion packs. Take a look at the pics in the gallery thanks to dark spyro reader blackmass and fellow addict from down under Caine Talbot for posting the original photos. I wish you all the best of luck in the battlefield and my you all get home victorious. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Element Expansion Packs This Holiday Season

Never-Before-Seen Elemental Zones and Villains Now can be Accessed and Captured in

Skylanders Trap Team

 

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Dec. 17, 2014 – For the first time since the launch of theSkylanders® franchise, two entirely new elements – Light and Dark – will be unleashed in the world of Skylands, announced Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI). Two new Trap Masters, Knight Mare and Knight Light, will hit store shelves nationwide this holiday season via special Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs, ushering in new adventures in the lore of Skylanders® Trap Team. Each Element Expansion Pack contains a Trap Master, a special Trap capable of capturing either Light or Dark villains, as well as a location piece that unlocks a special level in the game. The Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs will be available at all major retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99. Lucky Skylanders fans will be able to get their hands on copies of the Light Element Expansion Pack, which will be available first at Toys”R”Us® stores nationwide starting Sunday, December 21.

Portal Masters will have the opportunity to explore new levels within theSkylanders Trap Team universe, where they will find never-before-seen villains to capture and environments to explore. Amongst these villains are Luminous and Nightshade, who belong to the Doom Raiders – the elite members of Kaos’ army of Skylands’ most notorious bad guys.

“It’s amazing to see how deeply engrossed and fascinated our fans have been with the lore of the Skylanders franchise,” said John Coyne, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Activision Publishing, Inc. “By unveiling new Light and Dark elements and heroes to the Skylanders universe, our fans around the world will have new ways of exploring all the magic, excitement and fun of Skylands.”

The introduction of Light and Dark elements reveals additional back story of the Skylanders universe for fans to explore. Long ago, Knight Light and Knight Mare were both protectors of Skylands until being sealed off in other realms. Now that they have joined the Trap Masters, Knight Light wields his Traptanium Blade and Knight Mare unleashes her deadly Traptanium Lance to bring down evil everywhere!

There are images popping up on the Internet of the Wave 3 Trap Masters at Walmart stores on the West Coast as well as the expansion packs. Blackout and Spotlight look amazing! Who are you excited to play with the most? Team Light or Team Dark? Take our poll and let us know what side you are on. To get a closer look at these beautiful figures check out the video and the images in the gallery below. Until next time I will catch you on the SKYSIDE! BOOM!

Wave-3-Review

Hey Addicts!

This weekend is going to be legen… wait for it… dary! According to my sources Toys R Us stores have received shipments of Wave 3 cases. I also have been told that this wave is set to be released this Sunday 12/21/14. Can we expect to see Trap Masters Blastermind, Ka-Boom, and Tuff Luck in this weekends release? One of my sources says yes another source says TRU will not be receiving the Trap Masters or Core Skylanders before the holidays only the Light Element Packs.

I sure hope the latter isn’t the case there would be a lot of sad Portal Masters out there this holiday season. Be on the lookout for the TRU Hot Toy Alert coming to an email near you. I’m super excited to get my hands on Knightlight he looks so epic! Well that is all the info I have at the moment check out the images in the gallery of the Trap Masters & Core figures as well as the video review of the figures. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

New Characters From Light & Dark Elements Revealed


Hey Addicts,

I recently posted about the Nintendo 3DS release of Skylanders Trap Team. There were some images within that post that let us know there were two new elements Light and Dark or Darkness and Brightness. What we didn’t know is what new Skylanders would be apart of these new elements. Well recently Matteomax from darkspyro.net posted a link to a French website that ran an article about the new elements and the names of the new characters. According to the article the new elements are “mini elements” due to them having only two characters in each element and the names of the new characters are Blackout and Spotlight.

Blackout is the Dark character and from what I can understand he is a core character that is a quadruped or four-legged creature that uses multi-directional shade or shadows and vortexes.

Spotlight is the Light character that is also a quadruped but it uses rings and lasers that work much like Prism Breaks beams.

There are also two other characters but we don’t know their names. The Dark elemental is a Centaur that wields a big sword and the Light elemental is a Guardian Angel/Warrior character. Both are believed to be Trap Masters but we don’t have anything official stating that yet. If you follow the Skylander Dad he did a video that showed a concept of an angel character that possibly is the Light character that is talked about in the article.

The article is written in French so my only understanding is what Google translator shows me. We do not know what these creatures will be but some have speculated that they will be spider-creatures others are hoping for hybrid dragons among other things. Whatever they are I know they will be cool and I can’t wait to see them in action. We still do not know what Villains or Doom Raiders will be in the Dark and Light elements but I’m sure we will find out soon.

For those of you that can understand French and want to see the article for yourself here is a link. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

UPDATE:

Thanks to darkspyro admin dark52 we now have basic conformation on the names of the Light and Dark Skylanders. According to the Walmart website Blackout and Spotlight are core characters priced at $9.99 and Knight-Light and Knight-mare are Trap Masters priced at $14.99. Knight-Light is the Angel Warrior and Knight-Mare is the Centaur creature. Thanks to dark52 for finding out this info.
