Skylanders has sold through more than 240 million toys², outselling all top action-figure lines worldwide in 2014 for the third consecutive year³.
I’m pretty interested in getting the Crayola Starter pack set. I think it is a pretty cool idea to be able to color the box and make it look how you want. I want it just cause it’s a collector’s item and I love collector’s items. 🙂 The Bunny Earth Trap is pretty interesting as well. How about the mini variants? Pretty dope huh? I think so the color scheme on Eggscellent Weeruptor is absolutely beautiful and I bet it looks even better in person can’t wait! Well I’m going to end this with saying easter is going to be EGGSCELLENT! (Pun intented). Until next time “Catch you on the SKYSIDE!”
Want the Crayola 4D Color Alive Coloring Pages? You can buy them directly from Crayola right here. You can also get a sample page before you purchase it as well. The pages are only $5.99 plus tax of course and shipping if ordering from online. Happy Hunting!
I went to collect the mail and noticed I had a surprise package from Activision I didn’t know what it was, but boy was I stoked to see what it was when I opened the package. Check out what was inside…
Yes! Love Potion Pop Fizz the official Valentine’s Day Skylanders Toy for Skylanders Trap Team. So have you been wondering how Pop Fizz turned into Love Potion Pop Fizz? Well I happen to have to scoop…
It is said that when his latest attempt to concoct the ultimate raspberry soda totally backfired, Pop Fizz was caught in a blast that turned him pink and gave him an alluring aroma. At least that’s how he tells it. But with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the Skylanders are wondering if Pop Fizz is telling the truth… or if there is a special someone who he is trying to impress.
I wonder who Pop Fizz could be trying to get some affection from? Guess we will have to wait and see. Currently Target is the only retailer with it shelved, but Best Buy will release him on 02/01 and Toys R Us on 02/07. For all our UK readers he can also be pre-ordered at your local GAME store. Good Luck Hunting! Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
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!
Looks like we will be seeing our second holiday themed Skylander appear in stores soon. Love Potion Pop Fizz has been seen in California in store. Unfortunately, they are not able to be sold as they are street dated for 2/1/2015. I found a few images posted on DS and Instagram of what Love Potion will look like in package and out. I think he looks great and can’t wait to add him to my collection. What do you think about him? Will you be adding him to your collection? I think he will be readily available so no need to stress about not being able to get him, but just to be on the safe side get him as soon as you can. Until next time I’ll 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!
