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:
- Echo-Water Element
- Rocky Roll-Earth Element
- Spotlight- Light Element
- Blackout-Dark Element
- High Five-Life Element
- Batspin-Undead Element
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.
- Short Cut
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:
- 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:
- Pet Vac (Jet-Vac)-Air Element
- Breeze (Whirlwind)-Air Element
- Barkley (Tree Rex)-Life Element
- Whisper Elf (Stealth Elf)-Life Element
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.
- 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!
Looks like one of our favorite fire Skylanders is making an appearance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I have been wondering when we would see a Skylander in the Thanksgiving parade. Seeing as this has been a very popular game that appeals to children and adults you would think it would have happened sooner, but better now than never I suppose. Are you going to be attending the parade? Who do you think should have been the first Skylander to be in the parade? Check out the email I got this morning and the gallery for a few pictures. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
SKYLANDERS MAKES DEBUT IN MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE!
Skylanders Character, Eruptor, will Join the One-of-a-Kind Balloon
Fanfare in New York City on November 27
Skylanders, the popular kids video game that brings physical toys to life, is taking flight in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for the first time! Fan-favorite Skylanders character Eruptor will join the prestigious collection of balloons at the parade, marking a significant pop culture milestone for the franchise.
Fan-favorite character Eruptor, who will be flying high above the New York City skyline, hails from deep in the underground of a floating volcanic island that launched his entire civilization to the surface after a massive eruption. He’s a complete hot head – steaming, fuming, and quite literally erupting over almost anything.
In fact, to re-create Eruptor’s smoldering physique, artists used more than 40 gallons of florescent paint and five barrels of glitter! The live broadcast of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will begin at 9 a.m. all time zones on NBC. A sneak peak of the Eruptor balloon can be viewed via the attached graphical render.
The award-winning, $2 billion Skylanders video game franchise debuted in 2011 with Skylanders® Spyro’s Adventure, which featured the Toys-to-Life interactive figures, portal, and accessories and firmly established the play pattern that seamlessly bridges the physical and virtual worlds across multiple platforms.
The newest game, Skylanders Trap Team, is now available at retail nationwide on Xbox 360™and Xbox One™; PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4; Wii™ and Wii U™; and a unique adventure is also available on 3DS™. Skylanders Trap Team also ushers in the complete console gaming experience on Tablet¹, introducing a Starter Pack that supports iPad®, Kindle Fire and Android tablets.
Hope you all have had a great day thus far it sure has been an exciting one with all this juicy info we have been getting today. I saw this concept art and thought you guys would love to see it if you haven’t already. There are some amazingly talented artists and writers that help bring all the characters in the Skylanders Universe we know and love to life. I just want to say from all of us here at Skylander Addicts to everyone at Activision & Toys For Bob thank you for creating such and awesome and unique gaming experience time after time. I know I for one can’t wait to see what’s next after Trap Team with the introduction of Trap Keys I am interested in seeing how they will be used in future games. Well, that’s it for now enjoy the artwork in the gallery and I’ll catch you all on the SKYSIDE!
Hey Skylander Addicts and Collectors!
I have some good news! Most of us have been seeing Light Core Pop Fizz and Chill online on sites like Amazon.com and Ebay.com. Toys R Us has had them up for pre-order for months now! (well at least Pop fizz LC Chill here as of late) Well today while hunting I found LC Pop Fizz and LC Chill at my local Toys R Us they were $12.99 each.
There where only a few hidden amongst other figures (almost didn’t see them). I also found a few other interesting things at TRU and Target as well check them out below.
Skylanders Sketch Book $7.99 at Toys R Us
Skylanders Pencil Topper 3 pk $2.99 at Toys R Us Collect all six characters include Trigger Happy, Eruptor, Terrafin, Gill Grunt, Spyro (Not Pictured), and Chop Chop.
Skylanders Clicker Pen $4.99 at Toys R Us choose from Trigger Happy, Eruptor, Gill Grunt, and Spyro (Not Pictured)
Skylanders 3D Jumbo Eraser and Mystery Pencil Topper $3.99 at Target same as the other puzzle erasers you get from Wal-Mart and TRU, but the package is different and comes with the mystery topper. Choose from Swarm, Crusher, And Tree Rex not sure if all the toppers are available in the mystery packs or just 3 of them. Let you know when I find out.
Last but not least we have the Skylanders 3D Puzzle blind bag $2.99 at Target as well. Now this would be cool if it wasn’t the same three most of us already have! Maybe they will surprise with some new ones in the future my kids have a ball playing with them. The greatest part is if they break apart no worries just put it back together and keep playing!
Well that’s all I have today for you guys catch you on the SKYSIDE!
