Just got some interesting news from a little bird that I thought I should share with you all. Now according to this source this is the projected release dates of the Eon Elite figures at Toys R Us.
11/15 Slam Bam
12/31 Ghost Roaster
I can’t wait to add these figures to my other set of elite figures. Hope this info gives you a chance to save up to get them once they are released. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Some of you may have missed this yesterday so I thought that I would post about it here. The Skylanders Game released a few images on their social media sites the first image (see below) was posted on the Skylanders Italy fan page with the caption:
Attenti Padroni dei Portali, qualcosa di molto oscuro si sta avvicinando…
When translated the caption pretty much reads: “Beware Portal Masters! Something really dark is coming…”
Later the same day the UK Skylanders game page posted this image (see below) with this caption:
We’ve got a dark, dark secret to unveil tomorrow. What could this mean, Portal Masters?
You know us, we can’t keep a secret quiet for long – Drop back tomorrow afternoon for an exclusive look…
SDCC is this week and if you remember at last year’s event Activision announced the release of the Trap Team Dark Starter packs. I assume that the same thing will happen again this year with Superchargers.
What will we see in the starter packs?
Well from the looks of things we will be getting 2 Dark vehicles (see images below) and some sort of Kaos item not sure what it is, but my guess is that it will be a dark version of the Kaos Doomstation.
Will we also get Dark Skylanders figures?
I am sure we will but they have just not been unveiled yet, but from the images we can assume that there will be dark versions of Spitfire and Nightfall since we are getting there vehicles. I will do an update post once I get more information.
I hope you enjoy all the images, take a min to share us with your friends, tell me what you think about this any questions or concerns, and until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
I just saw this image on instagram (S/O to @supercharger_fiesta for the image) and thought I would share it because it raises some questions the main one being what the heck is Skylanders Battlecast?
Could this be the game we all were guessing about when we saw this pic?
The power bar looks the same as it does in Superchargers so maybe it is our answer to on-line multiplayer? If so will be in race mode giving us the chance to race against other players? Whatever it is I hope it looks as sweet as Superchargers does. Only time will tell 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!
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!
I happened to see a post about the Vicarious Visions team playing what could potentially be the next installment in the Skylanders series. Take a look at this picture found on DarkSpyro posted by DS user fairyland.
Here are some close up shots of the screen uploaded by DS user CountMoneyBone.
Here is a close up of the game title posted on DS by the Skylander Dad under the SkylanderKids user name. Can you figure out what it says?
Lots of us have tried to figure out what the game title says. Some say Baa-ttle Island(s), some say Baa-tle Land(s), which is what I thought it said when I first looked at it. After looking at it some more and seeing the post from the Skylanders Dad I’m pretty convinced it says Baa-ttle Flag. Skylanders Dad speculates that this could be a capture the flag style of game using the sheep as the flag. It makes perfect sense to me and even more sense that if this is released it will be a spin-off or mobile app.
As you can see from the images it seems that it is a two player multiplayer game as there are two game screens. Some have rumored that it could be a PC release, but after I looked at the photo more the VV employees are using XBOX controllers the game is just set up next to a set of computers. I don’t think that this will be a PC release, but I also am not to sure that this will be Skylanders 5 either. Here are my reasons…
- Look at the game logo there are no elements in the title, which leads me to believe that this is a potential Skylanders Spin-Off game.
- It looks like a first person shooter something like Plant vs Zombies Garden Warfare. All other Skylanders titles had a toy tie in or gimmick (Giants big toys, Swap Force Swap-Ability, Trap Team Trap aspect). Where is the gimmick? I refuse to believe the new gimmick would be sheep.
- And finally, I don’t see a portal or a toy being used. So you are telling me they are going to phase out the toys and portal all together? So not likely.
If this game ever sees the light of day I think it will be released as a mini game, a spin-off title (not Skylanders 5), or be released much like Battle Grounds or Cloud Patrol as a mobile app where the toy can be linked, but are not necessary to play the game Skylanders can be purchased through the game app.
Either way I’m excited to see new ideas are being explored with the Skylanders franchise. I think spin-off games could be a fresh breathe of life for the series. Could you imagine Skylanders fighter games, racing games like Mario Kart, Party games like Mario Party, man the list can go on. Whatever Actvision, VV, and TFB have up their sleeve we know it is going to be amazing and I can’t wait to see if this idea makes the cut and flourishes into another epic chapter in Skylanders history. Special thanks to everyone that shared images or posted about this topic on DarkSpyro. Until next time I’ll catch you all on the SKYSIDE!
Looks like the long-awaited Light and Dark (Shadow) element figures will be released soon. I think the UK and other overseas Portal Masters may see these before US Portal Masters unfortunately. According to myskylanders.de both Expansion Packs are or were available for pre-order through amazon.de (I can’t find a link at this time) If they become available again you can choose to pre-order both the packs (€ 29.99 ea.) through amazon as they deliver to the US or just wait until they are released here in the US.
Take a look at the images in the gallery below to get a closer look at what the packaging and toys look like. I have ordered from amazon.de before and have had no issues, but still I think I may wait until they come to the US. What Expansion pack do you want the most? Let me know in the comment section. Thanks to myskylanders.de for sharing the info with us. Well Good Luck Hunting Portal Masters and until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Update: For those of you that just can’t wait here is a link to pre-order from amazon.de

Yesterday I announced that Winterfest Lob-Star is coming to retailers soon in the US, but I didn’t know about a UK release. Well that is no longer the case as GAME UK will be stocking the shelves with this in-game variant as early as December 1st. But wait that isn’t all! If you are a GAME Skylanders Club Member you will get early access to this beautiful figure on November the 29th.
Also I know alot of you have asked about the Kaos Trap and the 8-Pack Trap Pack well I have a little info for you on that as well.
Looks like GAME has received a shipment of Kaos Traps in very limited quantity so If you are still looking I would head down to your local GAME store before he sells out again. As for the 8-Pack Trap Pack Argos has had it listed for a long time with no release date, but there is a rumor that it will be hitting shelves the first week of December as well. The 8-Pack is the only way you will get the rare Tiki Tech Trap and the in-game villain variant Steamed Broccoli Guy so be on the look out for these so you don’t miss out. If they are released anything like they are here in the states stock will be very limited so make sure to get yours immediately or be forced to duke it out EBay style. I Hope this bit of data helps you out on your hunt this holiday season. Well I’m going to get some lunch and keep looking for more deals for all you addicts out there. Until next time I’ll catch you on the “SKYSIDE!”
Editors Note: Kaos Trap has unfortunately SOLD OUT, but keep checking with your local GAME store I’m sure he will turn up again.
I have been MIA due to a lot of personal issues, but I’m still trying to stay on top of things so bare with me. Any who, I have seen that everyone is stoked about the light and dark Skylanders characters. As of yesterday Wal-Mart has listed Knightmare and Knightlight along with other unreleased Trap Masters.
The release date has not been officially released, but there is a placeholder date (a fictitious date used by the website until the true release date is known) of December 30st. Just looking at the date you know something isn’t right. I predict we will see the new figures soon possibly when wave 3 is released or when the big yearly Toys R Us Skylanders event is thrown in New York at Times Square. There are no images of the toys as of yet so we are still waiting to see those pop up. I will keep you all posted on we can expect to see these hit the shelves. Here is the Walmart link to both Knightlight and Knightmare figures if you can’t wait LOL! Note you can not order at this time Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
