skylandersday0110_01

Hey Addicts!

This shouldn’t be new news, but for those of you that don’t know tomorrow January 10, 2015 is Skylanders Day at GameStop stores in the US. Are you still looking for the Light and Dark Packs? Well you can save $10 if you buy both packs at the event tomorrow. You can also save $5 on the Eon’s Elite Figures, so if you’re still in need of adding Terrafin and Stealth Elf to your Elite collection now would be a good time to get them and any of the other Elite figures you may be missing. There are some other great sales going on as well like save $30 on Starter Packs and Skylanders Trap Team Traps for 99 cents with the purchase of a Trap Master. The first 20 customers will receive a new Skylanders Mini Comic Pack with a 2 sided poster included. The GameStop exclusive Lob Goblin Rocket Light Trap will also be available, but stock is limited so make sure to get there early to get what you need.

Now I know that GameStop has had a sale going on all week on Skylanders merchandise, but tomorrows sale is for one day only. Unfortunately, all the advertised sales are “in-store” only. (sorry online shoppers) The images you see are from the email you should have received for the event if you are apart of the GameStop Skylanders Club. I have waited to get my Light Traps and Elite figures just so I could take advantage of this sale. I’ll be there bright and early so I can get in and get out, then have some breakfast with the family. Happy Hunting and Good Luck! Until next time catch you on the “SKYSIDE!”

Winterfest Lob-Star Hits UK Stores Soon


WinterFest_Lob-Star_PackshotHey Addicts!

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.

kaos-trap-in-hand-at-GAME

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. trap-key-8-packThe 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.

“The Skylanders® franchise was built on a foundation of creativity and innovation,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “And with Skylanders Trap Team, we’re taking that tradition of innovation to new heights. For the last three years we’ve allowed kids to bring their toys to life in a video game, and this year, we’re letting them reach into the game, and pull characters out into the physical world by letting players trap and play as the villains.

Players can then send villains back into the game where they can play as them to fight for good, reversing the magic. They will also be able to hear the villains inside the Traps, an innovation that truly brings life to toys.

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.

Light & Dark Skylanders Images Leaked


Hey Addicts!

Last week I posted about the new elements being released in Trap Team. In that post I was only able to give you names and rumored descriptions of the characters, well today I paid a visit to dark spyro and noticed that someone posted images of the Light and Dark Skylanders confirming the names and what type of creatures they are. It was also stated that these figures will be sold in newly announced Action Packs.

action-pack-knightlight

Blackout and Spotlight are both dragon type Core Skylanders. Blackout looks like cross between Spyro and Bash just black with a horn in the middle of his head, while Spotlight looks like a combination of Whirlwind and Flashwing just white with a sun emblem on her head. I think I am going to call them Bashro and Whirlwing lol! Knightmare is a black colored female centaur character wielding a huge sword and Knightlight is a white colored winged warrior bird that also has a really huge sword both Knightmare and Knightlight are Trap Masters. I’m most excited about the Light element Skylanders especially Knightmare! I expect that these guys to be very popular once released. Check out the images below in the gallery and let me know what you think about these SKYTASTIC! new characters. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!
