SKYLANDERS BRINGS PREMIUM TOY LINE
“EON’S ELITE” TO FANS THIS FALL
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – July 24, 2014 – Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc.(NASDAQ: ATVI) announced plans to bring “Eon’s Elite,” a new set of premium toys, to Skylanders® fans worldwide this fall. The limited edition Eon’s Elite will introduce eight must-have collectible versions of fan-favorite Skylanders characters, beginning with Spyro and Chop Chop.
The heroes in the “Eon’s Elite” roster hail from the original Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure® and have been carefully selected by Master Eon for displaying undaunted courage and commitment to defending all of Skylands. Eon’s Elite features a never-before-seen decoration with a distinct, metallic finish and a golden base that sets them apart from other Skylanders toys. Each of these special edition toys will be offered in premium foil packaging and also features a display case with a 3D lenticular background. Additionally, when played in-game, Eon’s Elite will be up to three times as powerful over other characters, which represents the biggest in-game boosts ever incorporated into a Skylanders toy to date.
“Eon’s Elite represents the most iconic characters from the original Skylanders game that started it all,” said Josh Taub, senior vice president of product marketing at Activision Publishing. “These eight toys are not only premium quality but also honor the characters’ strength, courage and commitment. We’re excited to extend our fans’ collections with this new line.”
Eon’s Elite characters will be available in limited quantities at GameStop and EB Games stores in North America, Australia and New Zealand, and select retailers in Europe this fall while supplies last.

If getting an exclusive Skylanders comic book isn’t enough for you then how does winning a lot of cash sound? Activision is doing it real big for the release of the new Skylanders comic book series. In celebration of the Skylanders coming to SDCC Activision is holding a SKYTASTIC costume contest during the SDCC panel, “Skylanders: The Creative Process of Bringing Toys to Life.” There will be guest panelist as well as a chance to win Cash and RARE Skylanders!
