I wanted to give you guys a heads upon the release dates for legendary Bush Whack & Love Potion Pop Fizz. Rumor has it that Legendary Bush Whack will be released at Toys R Us stores on February 15, 2015. Love Potion Pop Fizz is said to be released February 7, 2015 I’m sure he will be released everywhere as he is an in-game variant. I have all the other legendary figures so I’m hyped to complete the set.
LP Pop Fizz is just too cute I plan on customizing one and flocking it. This info was spotted on DarkSpyro.com posted by DS user Chaotic Lunacy said to have come from a reliable source.
Guess we will have to see if he is right when the time comes. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Hey hey US portal masters! Got some great news for you all this evening!
New Minis have ARRIVED!!!
The fire and water mini packs are now out at Toys R Us and Walmart. Get yours today.
Plus…kaos trap got a little easier
Included with the deliveries of the minis is more random trap cases but each case now contains 2 kaos traps no matter what. This means odds have now increased greatly of finding the most elusive trap!
Quick update I previously posted that EE Whirlwind would be released on the 7th according to the email I had received. Looks like GameStop has other plans because during the latest Skylanders Day Event on December the 6th they have EE Whirlwind in the ad. So it looks like we will be able to get our hands on the 4th figure in the series a day early (Gotta love that!). There will also be some other deals going on during the event you can see what they are in the images below.
I can’t wait to see who is next will it be Gill Grunt for the water element and Stealth Elf for the Life element? I would like to see Terrafin as the Mountain Element who do you think will be next? Let me know in the comment section. Until next time I’ll catch you on the “SKYSIDE”
Just wanted to give you guys a heads up if you hadn’t noticed already. One of the most sought after toys of the season the Skylanders 8-Pack Trap Pack is available now for preorder! All you have to do is hit this –> link to get your order in. This is going to sell out fast so make sure you get yours before they are gone. Until next time catch you on the “SKYSIDE!”
Check out Eon’s Elite Trigger Happy! He looks so BOOMTASTIC! Can’t wait to add him to my collection! I’m sure most of you feel the same way. Remember that Trigger Happy is exclusive to GameStop stores and will apart of the sales going on this week. Get him before he is gone! #SKYLANDERS #SKYLANDERADDICTS
Yesterday I announced that Winterfest Lob-Star is coming to retailers soon in the US, but I didn’t know about a UK release. Well that is no longer the case as GAME UK will be stocking the shelves with this in-game variant as early as December 1st. But wait that isn’t all! If you are a GAME Skylanders Club Member you will get early access to this beautiful figure on November the 29th.
Also I know alot of you have asked about the Kaos Trap and the 8-Pack Trap Pack well I have a little info for you on that as well.
Looks like GAME has received a shipment of Kaos Traps in very limited quantity so If you are still looking I would head down to your local GAME store before he sells out again. As for the 8-Pack Trap Pack Argos has had it listed for a long time with no release date, but there is a rumor that it will be hitting shelves the first week of December as well. The 8-Pack is the only way you will get the rare Tiki Tech Trap and the in-game villain variant Steamed Broccoli Guy so be on the look out for these so you don’t miss out. If they are released anything like they are here in the states stock will be very limited so make sure to get yours immediately or be forced to duke it out EBay style. I Hope this bit of data helps you out on your hunt this holiday season. Well I’m going to get some lunch and keep looking for more deals for all you addicts out there. Until next time I’ll catch you on the “SKYSIDE!”
Editors Note: Kaos Trap has unfortunately SOLD OUT, but keep checking with your local GAME store I’m sure he will turn up again.
Are you having fun playing the new Skylanders Trap Team game? Yeah me too what better way to show off our trapping skills than with a contest right? Well, I just got an email a bit ago informing me that Activision is holding a 3 week contest in celebration of Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter Packs being added to online and retail Apple stores. All you have to do is take a photo or record a video of you playing Trap Team and post it to the Official Skylanders Twitter page (@SkylandersGame) with the hashtag(s) #TrapAndPlaySweeps #Skylanders and you are set.
The Skylanders Trap Team Tablet version of the video game is a fully playable version of the game available on the latest tablet designs such as iPad, Kindle Fire, and other Android based tablets. Meaning for the first time us Portal Masters can take the same version played on our favorite console with us anywhere and all our saved data (stats etc.) will be go with us! So say you are at home playing Skylanders and you have to go to Grandma’s you don’t have to wait until you get back home or pack up your console, figures, controllers, etc. Just grab you pad and go because you can play this version of the game with or without using the physical toys. Can you say EPIC!!!!
“The arrival of Skylanders Trap Team in Apple retail stores nationwide and the Apple Online Store marks a momentous milestone for the Skylanders franchise,” said Josh Taub, senior vice president of Product Management at Activision Publishing, Inc. “We’re thrilled that anyone who gets a new iPad this holiday season will have the ability to experience the magic of the complete Skylandersgame whenever, wherever they want.”
With a 90 Metacritic review score for iPad, Skylanders Trap Team is compatible with third and fourth generation iPads — the iPad mini Retina, the iPad Air and the brand new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 — all offering unmatched portability and high quality graphics that create an immersive, mobile experience like no other.
If you haven’t played the tablet version of Trap Team yet (Like me) you can get a free introduction download now for iPad! There are 3 digital content packs priced at $14.99 each also available in the iTunes Store so go and get your download on!
I can’t wait to see how you all “Thwart Kaos’ Evil Plan!” Let’s see those picture-taking, and video-making skills go to work! Until next time I’ll catch you guys on the SKYSIDE!
Man Activision is doing it extra big on the marketing and promotion side of things. They are on Frito Lay bags, General Mills snacks, Yoplait yogurts, soon to be on Crayola coloring pages, and just announced that Eruptor will be at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you got to any retailer that sells Skylanders it would seem like the displays are even beefed up and nicely stocked especially at Toy R Us and Target. Speaking of Target have you seen the new “Alice in Marshmallow Land” Target commercial? If you have, did you notice that lead Trap Master SnapShot makes a cameo appearance along with other popular toys like Barbie and Leo from the Ninja Turtles. I think it is a very cute commercial. Take a look at the extended version and tell me if you agree. Until next time “Catch you on the SKYSIDE!”
Are you ready for another Skylanders event? I know I am, if you are to make sure to get to Toys R Us this Saturday November 8, 2014 from 12pm to 4pm. Hit the link to get more info on the event and see what stores are participating in your area. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
A bit of news: The light and dark traps have been revealed! These are just rumors, but here are the pics:
So, it looks like there will be a Dark Sword Trap, Upside-Down/Flipped Trap, and an Exclusive Dark Spider Trap.
In the Light element, there’s a Light Rocket Trap, Light Yawn Trap, and an Exclusive Light Owl Trap. There is no official info released on these as of yet, so all of this is pure speculation. I will get more news to you guys as soon as it comes out. Until then, Catch you on the SKYSIDE!
