Supercharged Villains Images Old & New Faces


Hey Addicts!

As we know the villains are back in the new game with a twist. Check out the article I posted with all the info straight from Activision here. Thanks to my Aussie mate Justin for sharing these images with me so that I could share them with you. There are many familiar faces coming back like Chef Pepper Jack and Wolfgang but there are some villains we haven’t seen before like Spellslamzer, which has me excited to play this game even more! You can see the images in the gallery below hope you enjoy them. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Home Is Where The Skylanders Are: How We Became A Skylanders Family!


skylanderaddictsblog.com

My name is Jessica, and I am a Skylander aficionado.  I have the pleasure of spending my days with not one, not two, not even three Skylander Addicts.  My husband and our three sons are all clearly Addicts.  If you are keeping count, that’s four.  So, what sets my husband and sons apart and makes them, like you, Addicts?  Well, for us it is a multitude of different things.  The first thing I can think of, I can actually get these guys excited to go shopping.  If I mention wanting to go shopping it is amazing how quickly they will echo one another in their pleas to join me.  Of course they want to join me; just about every store I like to shop at is in a shopping center that includes their favorite Skylander retailers.  I have also been sold on the idea of driving a few towns over to go looking for new releases by being baited with promises of being able to visit stores that aren’t in our usual shopping destination.  What can I say, they know my weakness.

skylanderaddictsblog.com

skylanderaddictsblog.com

Another thing that makes my family Addicts, and all of you too I am sure, is that you could play Skylanders 24/7 and never tire of it.  My family would play this game all day, every day if you let them.  I am not even sure that they would stop to eat.  That’s probably my favorite thing about the game though.  I love that it is something that they actually want to do together.  It’s amazing—my boys can actually occupy the same air space for more than five minutes without aggravating one another if they are playing.  It’s a pneumonia that can’t be explained.  For, while they are engaged in the goings on of Skylands, they can get along.  I also like that this is something even I, my non-gamer self, can play with the kids.  Of course, I am probably not as fun as playing with dad because I require constant help, but I can play.  Skylanders brings us together and for that, I am forever grateful.

skylanderaddictsblog.com

As I am sure you know, being a Skylander Addict is so much more than liking a game.  It’s a lifestyle.  We have posters.  We have clothes.  We have buttons.  I could go on and on.  We have had themed parties and read books. Pretty much, if it has been branded with Skylanders, it can probably be located in my house.  I have probably spent a small fortune feeding the addiction, but you know what?  I don’t mind.  There is something about the game, the characters—I just can’t say no.

Game Changer: Skylanders Goes Online!


Hey Addicts!

SDCC 2015 kicked off in high gear this year and the fans loved it! Many companies such as Hasbro, Mattel, Disney, Lego, IDW, Funko and of course Activision once again showcased our favorite franchise and announced that we will be getting more Eon Elite figures and another Dark Edition starter pack with the release of the new game.

skylanderaddictsblog.com

skylanderaddictsblog.com

You can learn more about the dark edition and the Elite’s here. I added some images on the Facebook page thanks to my buddy @ziotec999 showing us some new vehicles and Skylanders. For the first time we finally get to see what Astroblast who is a Light Elemnt Skylander looks like as well as his vehicle and I must say it looks pretty sweet!

skylanderaddictsblog.com

We also got a chance to see what Lava Lance Eruptor’s vehicle would like it is called the Burn-Cycle and it is BA!

skylanderaddictsblog.com

Also first time images of Big Bubble Pop Fizz and his vehicle the Soda Skimmer as well as newcomer Thrillipede and his vehicle Buzz Wing.

skylanderaddictsblog.com

A new combo pack is being introduced it is called a Racing Action Pack. It will include 1 – Skylander, 1 – Vehicle, and 1 – Trophy, which will give Portal Masters the ability to race with villains. As you can see from the image below the Golden Queen Trophy is included in this R.A.P.

skylanderaddictsblog.com

One major thing that stuck out like a sore thumb from the images was that we will now be able to race head to head with other players and finally be able to do co-op missions with our friends now that Online Multi-Player Mode has been added.

skylanderaddictsblog.com

This is BOOMTASTIC! I have prayed for an online mode as most of you have. Now that we have it I hope that they will bring back PVP mode. It would be awesome to battle other portal masters around the world see who has the best Skylanders. Only time will tell, but I’ll tell you what this has me even more excited to play this game and see what else will happen with this franchise now that we can play online.

Are you excited about the addition of an online gaming experience? Sound off in the comments or on the Facebook page. Until next time I’ll 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.

For those of you that are attending SDCC 2015 this year you can stop by booth #121 to get your chance to play the Dark Edition first hand before other Portal Masters and get some bragging rights LOL! Here is a list and schedule of where you can find Activision and the Skylanders at the event.

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!

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.

You can get the play sets online at toysrus.co.uk, but the Tablet deals are in store only so call around to see if there are anymore in stock in your area. Be quick because once they are gone they are gone! Good Luck and Happy Hunting! Hope you can get out there and grab yourself a bargain.
