The other day my friend Stacy and I were having a conversation about Polar Whirlwind and the release of wave 4. We were talking about the McDonalds rumor and how funny it would be to get Polar Whirlwind in a happy meal. Then we started thinking wouldn’t it be cool if McDonalds did a Skylanders Happy Meal Toy? They would be little collectors figures that don’t work on the portal, but still would be cool non-the less.
We then wondered where we would be seeing Polar Whirlwind once it is released. Since Toys R Us has Legendary LightCore Chill, Wal-mart has Molten Hot Dog, Target has Jade FlashWing, and GameStop has the single pack regular S2 Hot Dog as well as S2 Spyro and S2 Wrecking Ball, who is left? Best Buy that’s who!
They were a big part of the series being sold, have had exclusive variants before, and haven’t made much noise as of yet. So, we are thinking that is where Polar WhirlWind will be or Scarlett Ninjini since she isn’t released yet either or maybe she will be an amazon.com exclusive was our other thought.
Discussing this topic also brought up two other questions.
Question 1: When are the S2 Sidekicks being released?
Question 2: Where the heck is S2 Drobot?
Well we figure Frito Lay will do another promotion this spring sometime seeing as the first promo went so well. As for S2 Drobot his picture is up on the GameStop website, so we figure he will be there as well with S2 Spyro and S2 Wrecking Ball he just hasn’t become available yet.
This past week has been an amazing week and it looks like this is going to be an even better easter holiday with the siting of Skylanders Easter Eggs at Wal-Mart and the full release of Wave 4. And we can’t forget about the new Mega Bloks Sets and Mega Bloks Skylanders Weapons coming out that have been popping up on the west coast at Fred Meyers.
I myself already have the new Chrome Spyro and Blue Bash Sets. There also is a new commercial up on the Mega Bloks Youtube channel showing the new battle figures and the Eye Brawl Zepplin! If you haven’t seen it check it out!
What are your thoughts on where we willing be seeing the new releases?
