As most of you may already know Kickoff Countdown is about to be released in the next few days. I woke up this morning to this email from Activision giving us more details. Also included is his awesome back story and some really sweet images you can see them in the gallery. I’m really excited to get my hands on this BOOMTASTIC Skylander! He is going to look real nice in my collection with the others.
Are you excited to add him to your collection? When you do post your pictures on the Skylander Addicts Facebook page we love to see how you guys display your landers. Well this is the end of the line until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

SKYLANDERS® CELEBRATES SOCCER FEVER WITH KICKOFF COUNTDOWN
The heroes of Skylanders SWAP Force have enlisted yet another team member in the battle against Kaos, this time with a soccer-themed flair. For the first time in Skylanders® history, Kickoff Countdown will make his way exclusively to Toys”R”Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com on Sunday, May 18, and will be available at retailers worldwide the following week.
This newly designed Kickoff Countdown is the only Skylander with the head of a soccer ball that appears both on the toy and in-game, which is sure to help him battle his way through Skylands’ most notorious Chompies and Trolls.
Originally, Kickoff Countdown was discovered by a group of Yetis who were snowboarding one particularly chilly morning when they came across a big bomb encased in ice. After bringing it back to their cabin, they were shocked when it actually came to life.
No one, not even Countdown himself, has any memory of where he came from or how he ended up frozen in the mountains. Since becoming a Skylander, Master Eon has been graciously trying to help piece together fragments of his past. But this has proven difficult, as Countdown loses some of his memory every time he explodes – which happens a lot!
Yeah I know it’s been a while since I posted anything I’m sorry guys but life sucks sometimes and you have to re-group before you can continue on. Ok life lesson over lol! Let’s talk Skylanders shall we?
Ok if you don’t already know Doom Stone is coming to Toys R Us 5/13/14 that is 2 days away!
Can you say stoked!!! I couldn’t make it out to the Time Square event in NYC so I missed out on grabbing him early. I have looked forward to have him added to my collection. There have been some Portal Masters that already have snagged Doom Stone at Wal-Mart stores on the West Coast according to darkspyro.net.
If you want to play the “Everyday I’m Hunting” game then by all means go for it, but I’m waiting until Tuesday personally.
In other Skylanders News looks like Kick Off Count Down will also make an appearance at TRU as well but it won’t be until 5/18/14. He has been a figure most of you and I included have been anticipating on being released. I like soccer so it is a must have for my collection.
Heads up all UK Portal Masters that don’t know Doom Stone has already been released you can find him at your local Smyths Toys for only £14.99! If you still need to add him to your collection get to your local Smyths or go to their website and order him today.
Well that’s it for now guys if I find out any more info I will be sure to let you know as always. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Images of the much-anticipated Skylanders Variant Kickoff Countdown has been posted on myskylanders.de. Not sure exactly when we can expect to see him here in the US, but rumor has it that it may turn up in Germany between May 6th, to June 12th according to Dark Spyro Reader Matteomax. Check out the pictures in the gallery to see what he looks like. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
