Hey Addicts!

E3 has kicked off and today we should be getting some more Skylanders info. Some images and other things have leaked all over the internet. The biggest leak that has had Portal Masters in a frenzy is that the beloved fan favorite Crash Bandicoot is coming to Skylands. The Italian Skylanders site added a Crash tab to there page leaking the secret that crash would be a Playstation exclusive.

Following in the footsteps of Nintendo and the “SKYMIIBO” figures Playstation is getting one of there own. Hopefully they will also work like the Amiibo Skylanders with the switchable base. We don’t have much details on this starter pack or what element Crash will be but once we do I’ll be sure to post about it.

We also have learned the names of the images of the the other Skylanders Imaginators we have been seeing. But this time we are seeing them in toy form Ambush who is a Life Knight, Ember who is a Fire Sentinel, and we now have an image of the regular version of Wolfgang who is a Dark Bowslinger.

Hey Addicts!

The past few days have been so awesome for us Skylanders fans. I am pretty excited about the new installment of the Skylanders game. Yesterday we saw leaked images from the Asian Gamer @thereal8bittheater (mistakes happen). Well today we got full conformation about the new game here is everything you need to know about the new game thus far. First let’s check out the press release sent over by Activision.

Fans to Submit their Skylander Designs for Chance to have Creations Featured in Game at Launch!

13342083_472450976294107_825172132_n

Since the launch of Skylanders®, kids around the world have sent Toys For Bob, the pioneers of the toys-to-life category, hand-drawn Skylanders with one special request – please bring my Skylander to life.This October, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) will make that wish a reality. For the first time,Skylanders® Imaginators will empower Portal Masters to unleash their imaginations by giving them the freedom to create their own Skylander.

“Since we launched the very first Skylanders game, we have received countless letters and drawings from kids all over the world sharing their vision for their own Skylanders. No matter how in touch with our ‘inner kids’ we might think we are as adults, nothing comes close to the endless creativity that springs from the mind of an inspired kid,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. “We’ve turned this year’s game into the ultimate blank canvas for kids’ imaginations so they can create and play their own Skylanders.”

skylanderaddictsblog

Skylanders Imaginators gives players immense possibilities — including appearance, powers, abilities, names, catchphrases, musical themes and much more — to create the wildest Skylanders imaginable. The amazing depth of the creation system could allow for more than a googol distinctive characters.

With the evil Kaos on a new quest to take over Skylands, it’s up to Portal Masters everywhere to create their own Skylanders – known as Imaginators – using the new elementally-aligned toy type called the Creation Crystal. Creation Crystals allow players to transport their Imaginators to consoles at anytime, anywhere!

Skylanders Imaginators introduces Skylanders Senseis, all-new heroes who represent 10 powerful Battle Classes such as Knight, Sorcerer, Bowslinger, Brawler and more.

skylanderaddictsblog

Skylanders Senseis help train created Imaginators by offering a range of benefits including unlocking super-cool Imaginator weapons, providing access to special areas in the game, as well as bestowing Secret Techniques across the Battle Classes. Senseis also have their own unique benefits including the extraordinary ability to unleash Sky-Chi – the ultimate Battle Class super move. There are a total of 31 Senseis, which include some fan-favorite villains who have been reformed and now fight for good!

“Skylanders consistently delivers on innovative gameplay experiences. With customization a dominant trend in the consumer market, the fact that Skylanders Imaginators will allow kids to bring their own creations to life is a game changer and one our customers will enjoy,” said Richard Barry, Global Chief Merchandising Officer, Toys”R”Us, Inc. “We are proud to continue to serve as a marquee Skylanders destination, and look forward to fans’ excitement when the new Skylanders Imaginators game arrives this holiday season.”

Skylanders Battlecast Finally Coming To Stores


skylanderaddictsblog

Hey Addicts!

Been a while since I’ve posted been really busy with the new baby. I wanted to share this tidbit of information. If you remember a while back I posted information about the Battlecast game being released March 1st. Unfortunately for us the game was pushed back for unknown reasons. Many of us were left wondering what happened anticipating the release while some of us ordered from overseas sellers

That is exactly the same day the last remaining Skylanders figure Thrillipede and vehicle Buzzwing are set to be released it’s also one day after my birthday so you know what I’ll be asking for.

I’m really excited to get this game, as I know some of you are as well. I am also excited to get some Skylanders 6 info at E3, which is coming up soon. What do you think the new game will be called? Do you think it will tie into the new cartoon series Skylanders Academy or maybe the comic book series? Only time will tell I just know that I am over amped! Guess I’ll have to keep playing Superchargers and Battlecast for the time being. If you haven’t already make sure to go and download the Battlecast app so that you don’t miss out on anything. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

SKYLANDERS AND AUTISM SPEAKS PARTNER UP FOR AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH


Hey Addicts!

Been a little while since I have posted some of you may know I’m expecting a new addition. Pretty much all my time has been taken up getting ready. I know this is old news to most of you, but I got an email from Activision earlier today. Enclosed was the official press release for the partnership between Activision (Skylanders) and Autism Speaks. Quick briefing to help celebrate and show how much Skylanders supports the cause a special set of Skylanders figures will be released on March 1st pretty much everywhere Skylanders are sold, though some stores have already been stocking the shelves with these beauties. They are what I have reported about for a while now the Power Blue Supercharger variants. Here is the full scoop about this awesome release of figures!

skylanderaddictsLeading into World Autism Awareness Day on April 2

Collaboration Brings Attention to Important Cause

that Supports Affected Kids and Families around the World

SSC_Power_Blue_TriggerHappy 2

To support the millions of families affected by autism, Skylanders®, the beloved kids videogame franchise, and Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to autism science and advocacy, invite fans to “Light it up Blue” with one-of-a-kind toys. Through this creative collaboration for April’s Autism Awareness Month, Skylanders and Autism Speaks are raising awareness for an important cause — and in true Skylanders fashion, are having fun while doing it.

SSC_Power_Blue_GoldRusher

“Autism affects one in every 42 boys and one in 68 children in the U.S. We’re proud to work with Skylanders, an iconic franchise that’s known for bringing joy and magic to kids and families,” said Peter Morton, vice president of Corporate Development at Autism Speaks. “This year’s Light it up Blue campaign for World Autism Awareness Day marks our first alliance with a videogame and toy, and we couldn’t be more excited.”

SSC_Power_Blue_Splat

SSC_Power_Blue_SplatterSplasher

 

The new series of Skylanders SuperChargers toys are blue and white to reflect Autism Speaks’ official colors.  The “Power Blue” Skylanders SuperChargers feature Splat and Trigger Happy, as well as their SuperCharged vehicles Splatter Splasher and Gold Rusher — all of which appear in-game as their special colors. The toys are on store shelves now at participating retailers in the U.S. and Europe and will be available starting April 1 in Canada.

“When my son was diagnosed with autism, I felt very alone. From my first Autism Speaks Walk, I felt the power of community, and this partnership with Skylanderswill bring awareness and belonging to kids and families in a unique way,” said Matt Asner, director of Corporate Development, Autism Speaks.

SSC_Keyshot_PowerBlue_TriggerHappy_FINAL2

In addition to creating the Power Blue Skylanders SuperChargers and bringing them to life in game, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) is launching employee education and employee-donation matching programs in connection with Autism Awareness Month.  Additionally, in recognition of World Autism Awareness Day, employees will have the opportunity to participate in the Autism Speaks Walk on April 2 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.  Activision is also making donations to non-profits that are making a difference in the autism community.

I think it says something about Activision that they are supporting and awesome cause and giving us portal masters a chance to add something unique to our collections. I know a lot of parents that read this blog with a child or children with Autism so I know this is an issue that hits home. I have seen some of you express how awesome this is of the Skylanders game to partner up with Autism Speaks just makes you warm all over doesn’t it?

I will be getting more than one set of these to help support the cause. I hope that a lot of you will be supporting the “Light It Up Blue” campaign by purchasing a set or two of these as well. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Wave 4 Plus New Variants


Hey Addicts!

Skylanders fans around the world are going crazy with the news of new figures and vehicles being released. With wave 4 Activision seems to have some surprises for us let’s take a look.

sring-ahead-dive-bomber

Wave 4 Vehicles

Thanks to Dark Spyro, MySkylanders.de, SCL, and Skylanders Inquirer we have images of what the vehicles will look like. There are 5 vehicles included in this wave one being the Easter in – game variant Spring Ahead Dive Bomber. The other vehicles are…

  • Soda Skimmer
  • Sun Runner
  • Tomb Buggy
  • Hot Streak

Hot Streak is making it’s first appearance outside of the starter pack. This is a great opportunity to add this vehicle to your collection without buying a starter. For those of you that just want Astro Blast and Sun Runner you have your chance to do so as well. I think it would be better to get the racing pack personally so that you can get the trophy, but any way to save cash and still enjoy the game is the goal.

Wave 4 Figures

Looks like there are only 3 figures in this wave (4 if you count Happy/Eggcited Thrillipede).

skylanderaddictsblog

  • Astroblast
  • Bone Bash Roller Brawl
  • Spitfire

This is a very weird release I say that because the only new figure is Bone Bash Roller Brawl. The other figures have already been released in the Regular Starter Pack and the Sky Racing Pack. Bone Bash will also be included in a Dual Pack with Tomb Buggy and a Triple Pack with Tomb Buggy and Splatter Splasher. Also making a Dual Pack appearance is Big Bubble Pop Fizz and the Soda Skimmer.

12552952_10153941811204973_3483696141573426993_n

Once again we get more variants in this wave. This time around they are bronze/copper in color. Bone Bash and Tomb Buggy both get the shiny metallic makeover. So far a few of them have been sited. The image of BB Roller Brawl was posted by a store employee on the Skylanders Game page and Instagram user @smoldersmith posted the image of the Tomb Buggy variant.

What in the world check this varient i just bought

A post shared by Steve Smith (@smoldersmith77) on

I am loving the new variants! This game seems to have the most variants thus far. How do you feel about all these variants? Do you think it is a good or a bad thing for the franchise? Will you be chasing these down? Let me know what you think in the comment section or sound off on the Facebook page. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and all our other social media pages. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Hungry? Eat A Skylander!


KC-19607_10062507-CF

Hey Addicts!

Now by no means do I really think it is a good idea to eat a Skylander. I don’t think that it would taste that great or feel good coming out if you know what I mean, but have you ever been having lunch and thought it would be cool to have Skylanders food. Well thanks to the folks over at Kid Cuisine we have a new way to enjoy defeating Kaos with our stomachs! From now until April we will be able to enjoy 9 different Skylanders themed meals. Check out the press release below.

 Activision Publishing, Inc. and ConAgra Foods’ Kid Cuisine have teamed up to bring even more fun to frozen-food grocery aisles.

KC-19624_10062548-CFThe Skylanders-inspired Kid Cuisine meals will infuse the magic that the blockbuster franchise is known for with this novel partnership. Fans will enjoy meals featuring their favorite characters such as Stealth Elf and Kaos shaped chicken nuggets with gem-shaped cookies, and Spyro and Dream Catcher-shaped macaroni with pudding that changes color while you eat! Fans will be able to get their hands (and mouths) on nine different Skylanders-themed Kid Cuisine meals:
  • Cheese Pizza

The game offers everything from collectability to strategic card combat, online PvP and an exciting single-player campaign, appealing to both Skylanders fans and classic card battle enthusiasts. Skylanders Battlecast lets players create a team of their favorite heroes and build the ultimate deck for battle.  Portal Masters won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to continue to build their ultimate deck of cards on their quest to become a legendary Battlecaster in anticipation of the game’s official launch in 2016.
Skylanders_Battlecast_Cards_to_Life
I am a little bummed that the only card we will get is  stealth elf card. Would have been nice to get a different card in each package. Still nice to be able to bit into a Kaos head lol! Will these little meals be included in your next shopping trip? I know once my little ones see them they will be on mine. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

 

Let’s Talk Battlecast!


tumblr_nuygljcwlM1sbfuf4o1_1280

Hey Addicts!

As some of you may already know Battlecast is coming real soon! Thanks to Skylanders Inquirer, Dark Spyro, and a few other Skylanders blogs we have a little more info about what we can expect to receive once we purchase our first batch of cards. Here is a break down of the game thus far.

battlecast

First thing to note is that there will be over 270 cards to collect. That is just to much power for one portal master to handle LOL! There are 4 card categories:

  • Character Cards-Used to summon Skylanders to cast spells or attack.
  • Spell Cards-Used to cast spells (of course).
  • Gear Cards-Used to upgrade your Skylander.
  • Relic Cards- Used to change the gameplay.

In the tradition of card games there is a rarity scale, a 4 level rarity scale to be exact.

Common, Rare, Epic, and Ultimate are the levels the cards will be broken down into.

battlecast2

The cards will be packaged for purchase in two ways. You can buy the Booster Packs which include 8 cards not sure if there is a guaranteed rare card included as of yet, but I’m sure there will be. Or you can buy the Battle Packs that includes 22 cards, and a ‘Trading Shield’.

trading-sheild

What the Heck is a Trading Shield? I asked myself the same question. Well according to Skylanders Inquirer a ‘Trading Shield’ is used to trade cards, post pictures of your cards, etc. because once the cards are scanned into the game via the code on the edge of the card. The card becomes non-transferable the shield also protects your code from being used when you do share.

card-in-shield

The price of each pack has not been stated for us here in the US, but going by the price Skylanders Inquirer stated they were $7.99 NZD (approx. $5.45 USD) for the Booster Packs and $16.99 (approx. $11.64 USD) for the Battle Packs.

I am guessing the price will be between $5.99 to $6.99 USD for the Boosters and $11.99 to $12.99 USD for the Battle Packs. We will have to wait a bit longer for a definitive answer.

sb-1

Here is a list of the some of the cards thus far…

Commons:

  • Hex
  • Smash Hit
  • Snap Shot
  • Spitfire
  • Spyro
  • Stealth Elf
  • Stormblade
  • Trigger Happy

Rare/Epic:

  • Crusher
  • Food Fight
  • Hot Head
  • Jawbreaker
  • Jet-Vac
  • Pop Fizz
  • Riptide
  • Roller Brawl

Ultimate:

  • Countdown
  • Eruptor
  • Flashwing
  • Krypt King
  • Ninjini
  • Tree Rex
  • Wash Buckler
  • Whirlwind

Skylanders_Battlecast_Cards_to_Life

I can’t wait to start playing this! I already play Hearthstone and Battlecast is just a kid friendly version of that game, so I think I’ll enjoy it just as much. If you are a Hearthstone player you know what I mean. With Activision buying the MLG organization will we see a worldwide Battlecast Tournament? That would be BOOMTASTIC!!!

I am hoping that I will get my hands on one of these guys, but I’ve only seen chase figures in the wild one time and have never since gotten the chance to again (I am hopeful).  Are you a chaser? Do you own any chase figures? If you could have any chase figure what would it be?

I wonder who will be the next patina variant? Will it be another Skylander or will it be a vehicle? I kind of would like to see a patina version of the Shark Tank. What vehicle would you like to see get a patina makeover? Well that’s it for now folks be sure to follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and show us some love on Instagram. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
