New Superchargers Variant Surfaces


Hey Addicts!

This may be old news to you all that follow tons of groups like me, but for those of you that haven’t heard the news a new variant has popped up on Ebay. This variant is also a patina so we now have 2 of this particular variant to be on the hunt for. The first being the High Volt variant which not many of us have been lucky enough to find in the wild. The newest variant release is Patina Lava Lance Eruptor.

skylanderaddictsblog

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!

Hey Addicts!

We all have anticipated the release of Skylanders Superchargers for IOS/Apple devices. Last year we got the chance to play a full version of Skylanders Trap Team that could be played on your favorite console and Apple device. Well this year Activision is kicking it up a notch by introducing real-time online multiplayer gameplay with Skylanders Superchargers. The new release not only allows players be able to take the game on the go, but now we will also be able to play online against other Apple users.

Take a look at the press release below for more details. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

“Last year, fans loved how they could play the same incredible game on iPad as on other platforms. This year we are giving Portal Masters even more ways to play their favorite game as we expand Skylanders SuperChargers to Apple TV, iPhone and iPod touch,” said Josh Taub, senior vice president of product management for Skylanders at Activision. “Fans are able to play Skylanders SuperChargers on the compatible Apple platform of their choice, whenever and wherever they want.”

The Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV includes everything necessary for fans to play Skylanders SuperChargers out of the box, complete with exciting racetracks and captivating environments that push the technological and visual boundaries of gaming. The Starter Pack comes with the AAA game, the Portal of Power® with embedded Bluetooth® controller, a built-in stand, two Skylanders SuperChargers characters and a Skylanders SuperChargers vehicle.

This is the kind of magic we’ve seen consistently from the franchise since Skylanders created a brand new way for kids to play with their toys.”

Skylanders Animated Series Coming Soon


Issue #3

Hey Addicts!

This is exciting news for me and I am sure most of you portal masters and addicts out there that love this franchise as much as I do. For years now we have wanted to see an animated movie or series of the Skylanders. There had been rumors that Activision was planning to release something, but the rumor was quickly nipped in the bud. Sadly we thought it would never happen as they said they were not interested in anything other than making the game. Then we got Skylanders comic books which in my opinion are freaking BOOMTASTIC! Naturally one could assume there would be a TV series or something coming. Well today our prayers have been answered by the Sky Gods!

There is not much information about the series except that it will be called Skylanders Academy. It will be the first project released by the new Activision Blizzard Studios Film & TV Company. They did give us a list of voice actors that will be voicing the Skylanders.

“Skylanders™ Academy” will feature the voices of Justin Long (“Alvin and the Chipmunks,” “Ask Me Anything”) as Spyro, Ashley Tisdale (“Phineas and Ferb,” “High School Musical”) as Stealth Elf, Jonathan Banks (“Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul”) as Eruptor and Norm Macdonald (“Saturday Night Live”) as Glumshanks. Additional voice talent includes Harland Williams and Richard Horvitz.

Harland Williams – ???? (Who do you think he will voice?)

skylanderaddictsblog

Richard Horvitz – Kaos (Of Course Fools! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!)

The series is now in production so I hope that we will get to see the new show by summer of 2016 (fingers crossed).

Take a look at the official pre release on the Activision website to get a bit more details on what we can expect from Activision Blizzard Studios. I will keep you all updated with more info on this topic as I get it. Do you think that the Skylanders cartoon will be good? Are you excited? Take the poll and leave a comment let us know what your thoughts are. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

P.S.

Skylanders isn’t the only thing coming! Duty Calls! LJ Out!
