I covered this info a while back in a post but it now has officially been confirmed that King Cobra Cadabra and Steampunk Shrednaught will be exclusive to GameStop stores.
I got an email like I’m sure most of you have stating there would be another Skylanders Day June 27, 2015 at GameStop. We all know how I feel about Skylanders Day at GS, but things look promising this go around. Here is a look at the deals going on all week.
As you can see there will be various sales going on throughout the week starting tomorrow June 24th, but there will be a set of sales that will only be valid on Skylanders Day the 27th. Here is what you can expect to see on sale during the day of the event.
The deals that stand out the most to me are the Buy 1 Get 1 Free Deal the day of the event I’ll be taking advantage of that deal to get King Cobra Cadabra. I will also be preordering the game and getting my Shreadnaught trap as well as I am a member of the Skyalnders Adventure Club have been since the beginning. If you haven’t joined the club you should it’s free and you get free figures! Of course there are stipulations, but it pans out.
If you still need a starter pack I would get one now as this is an awesome deal with a nice amount of Skylanders extras. The best deal out of all the sales would have to be the Eon Elites being Buy 1 Get 1 Free. I’ll be taking advantage of this sale as well to get the last two Elites I need (Eruptor & Gill Grunt).
Will you be attending Skylanders Day? What will you be getting? Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Ziotec shared some interesting info in our Facebook group and I thought I would share. I know a lot of you have wondered when new Skylanders were being released on your side of the water so this should help. As soon as we get an update on Steam Punk I’ll update the post. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

I saw something on darkspyro.net by user motosada stating that both King Cobra Cadabra and Steam Punk Shrednaught will be released on June 27th by way of the inventory computer system (I assume he works there). He does not state if it is an exclusive to Game Stop stores or not but that is the date in the computer.
I contacted my GameStop contact and they confirmed that the information provided is correct, but they are not able to be reserved at the moment and they didn’t know exactly when they would be but it should be soon. This info has me “All Fired Up!” I can’t wait June is going to be a great month for us Portal Masters and Skylander Addicts. I will update you all on this when they are available for pre-order. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Got some awesome news from the folks over at myskylanders.de. Today they released a complete list of what we can expect to see hit stores when wave 4 comes and I’m pretty amped about a few things that are coming. Since their site is in German I took the liberty of translating it for you guys as best I could so here it goes.
We are looking at a projected date of wave 4 being released sometime in March. I’m not sure if that is the US release or if that is the projected date for overseas Portal Masters, but either way that’s good news to me. Looks like there will be six core Skylanders coming in wave 4 included are:
- Echo-Water Element
- Rocky Roll-Earth Element
- Spotlight- Light Element
- Blackout-Dark Element
- High Five-Life Element
- Batspin-Undead Element
Glad to see we will finally see High Five and Batspin hit US stores I’m super pumped to get my hands on Spotlight and Blackout they look awesome and I bet they play just as well as they look if not better. Two of the most anticipated Skylanders Trap Masters will finally be making appearance in this wave along with Single pack versions of the Light and Dark Trap Masters.
- Short Cut
I just realized about a week ago that Short Cut was a Trap Master. I was already excited to add him to my collection when I first saw him, but after finding out he was a Trap Master I wanted him even more. Thunderbolt looks so BOSS he is definitely a must have for me I want to see how well he plays his attacks look sick! We will be seeing another wave of traps as well included are:
- Rocket Light Trap
- Rocket Magic Trap
- Sword Shadow Trap
- Sword Air Trap
- Sword Life Trap
- Upside Down Guy Shadow Trap
- Upside Down Guy Earth Trap
- Spear Fire Trap
- Spear UndeadTrap
- Axe Water Trap
- Kaos Trap
Also listed are 2 Triple Pack Trap Packs do not know what will included in the packs, but I’m sure it will be the same as it has been released in earlier waves as a way to save a little cash and get more traps. Those of you that do not have a Kaos trap (I need another one) will have another chance at getting this hard to get trap before it becomes unavailable again. I’m sure there will be more Kaos traps in the wave but you still will want to get to your local stores early when they go on sale.
There are two new mini packs coming as well included in these packs are:
- Pet Vac (Jet-Vac)-Air Element
- Breeze (Whirlwind)-Air Element
- Barkley (Tree Rex)-Life Element
- Whisper Elf (Stealth Elf)-Life Element
We will also see more of Mini Pack 5 (Gill Runt & Thumpling) and Mini Pack 6 (Small Fry & Weeruptor). There are some things expected to be released as well but not in wave 4 they will have their own separate releases or come in a mini wave. We already know about Nitro Head Rush, Legendary Bush Whack, and Love Potion Pop Fizz, but who else is coming? Here is a list of things we should see from now until at least April.
- Flip Wreck
- Fling Kong
- Triple Pack (Deja Vu / Rocky Roll / echo)
- Triple Pack (Blackout / Fling Kong / Pop Fizz)
- King Cobra Cadabra
- Gnarly Barkley
- Yawn Trap
- Praise Goblin (Trap Variant)
- Steampunk Shrednought (Trap Variant)
- Eon’s Elite: Eruptor & Gill Grunt
I’m glad to see Gear Shift will be getting another run she is still around in some stores, but it will make her more available for those of us that haven’t gotten her yet (I need another one of her too lol). I so hope Enigma comes out in a mini wave-like a 4.5 or something I have to have him on my portal asap! Also mentioned in the article are the Easter Edition Trap Team figures, but I’m going to do a separate post about these as I feel they deserve to have a post just about them. I do not have an exact release date on any of this stuff just projected dates or a figure and trap case break down or anything like that, but when I get the info trust and believe I’ll be letting you know. Take a minute to show us some love on our social sites I love to see what new things you all are adding to your collections, game tips, or just shoot the breeze (Pun intended). Thanks to MySkylanders.De for giving us this awesome info. Happy Hunting All! Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Today has been a good day for us Skylanders fans. There are tons of images being leaked since the game was officially released today in Australia. A dark spyro reader bought the 3DS version of Trap Team and came across the in-game variants. Check out the gallery to get a first look at all the in-game variants known thus far. I am in love with the variants EGGspecially Skylanders mini Eggscellent Weeruptor and Winterfest Lob-Star who I assume with be this years winter themed variant. He looks better than Swap Force Jolly Bumble Blast in my opinion but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Until next time happy hunting, stay safe & positive, and I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
