Something fishy is going on Portal Masters and I’m trying to get to the bottom of it. So I posted earlier today about the single pack easter edition figures being a rumor. Well this evening futureshop.ca (Canadian version of Best Buy), Best Buy, and Amazon have listed the same single packs that were thought to be fakes.
It is not certain what is going on, but Eggscellent Weeruptor’s name is spelled wrong in all the images. Although the image I posted was fan made it seems to be of a genuine product unless the images were snatched from the same online source and it all is incorrect. I highly doubt that is the case so here are my assumptions on what is going on…
We know that Target and Toys R Us will have their own Skylanders Easter Edition figures with Toys R Us also releasing an exclusive Russle Sprout trap, but they are supposed to be packed together not in single package form. With other major retailers listing single packs with a late March release it leads me to believe that every other retailer maybe receiving single pack easter figures and Target and TRU will have separate easter sets at their locations.
I’m sure we will have exact release dates for everything after Toy Fair, speaking of Toy Fair a lot of us were not sure if Activision would be attending this years event. Today we got conformation that Activision would indeed be at Toy Fair but at a smaller booth than usual.
I’m stoked to get some more Skylanders news I don’t think we will hear anything about the new game but I do think we will see the easter figures, some other variants, and possibly get a new Toy Fair Exclusive Skylander. Toy Fair kicks off tomorrow so hopefully we will get some good news and images then.
So what are your thoughts on this whole thing? What do you thing is going on with the easter release? Leave a comment and let me know. I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on what I find as usual. Until next time I will catch you on the “SKYSIDE!”
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.
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.
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!
