Hey Addicts!

Boy do I have a treat for you! Check this out!


I won’t say anything else you can find the link below, but I hope you have $500 to spare LOL! That is a lot of bacon to be giving away especially during the holidays. I don’t see it selling for that much, but if it does I want to thank the genius that makes this a dream figure. (so being sarcastic) What is the most you will pay for a chase or extremely rare figure? Sound off in the comments section and until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Editor’s Note: Just to clarify, they’re asking for 500 British Pounds which is actually about $780 USD. Yeah! Let that sink in… LOL! Thanks SCL Matt! 🙂

Wave 3 Spotted At Target Stores On The West Coast

Hey Addicts

It seems that we may be getting Wave 3 Trap Masters & Core Skylanders along with the Light & Dark Expansion packs. Target stores on the West Coast have been said to have them stocked and ready to go at a few different locations. Toys R Us will be the only store with the Light & Dark expansion packs in the US as they have exclusivity for a few weeks. Quantities will be limited but don’t worry stores will begin getting more stock in after the holidays. If you just gotta have them though then I would be stalking the stores lol! I predict these are going to go very fast. Some Australian Portal Masters already have gotten their hands on Wave 3 figures as they are available now at Big W, EB, and Target. Tomorrow UK Portal Masters will be able to get their hands on Wave 3 but they will have to wait until January 16th to get the Light & Dark Expansion packs. Take a look at the pics in the gallery thanks to dark spyro reader blackmass and fellow addict from down under Caine Talbot for posting the original photos. I wish you all the best of luck in the battlefield and my you all get home victorious. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Light & Dark Element Street Date Finally Announced

Hey Addicts!

Just wanted to give you a quick update on what has been the talk of Skylands the Light & Dark elements. Activision has confirmed that we will be seeing the expansion packs this Sunday December 21st at Toys R Us. Unfortunately it looks like we will not be seeing Wave 3 until after Christmas. There is a rumor that they will be released the day after Christmas or that weekend but nothing has been officially announced. Check out the press release I got this morning to get all the juicy details.

New Light and Dark Element Trap Master Skylanders to be Included in Special

Element Expansion Packs This Holiday Season

Never-Before-Seen Elemental Zones and Villains Now can be Accessed and Captured in

Skylanders Trap Team


SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Dec. 17, 2014 – For the first time since the launch of theSkylanders® franchise, two entirely new elements – Light and Dark – will be unleashed in the world of Skylands, announced Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI). Two new Trap Masters, Knight Mare and Knight Light, will hit store shelves nationwide this holiday season via special Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs, ushering in new adventures in the lore of Skylanders® Trap Team. Each Element Expansion Pack contains a Trap Master, a special Trap capable of capturing either Light or Dark villains, as well as a location piece that unlocks a special level in the game. The Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs will be available at all major retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99. Lucky Skylanders fans will be able to get their hands on copies of the Light Element Expansion Pack, which will be available first at Toys”R”Us® stores nationwide starting Sunday, December 21.

Portal Masters will have the opportunity to explore new levels within theSkylanders Trap Team universe, where they will find never-before-seen villains to capture and environments to explore. Amongst these villains are Luminous and Nightshade, who belong to the Doom Raiders – the elite members of Kaos’ army of Skylands’ most notorious bad guys.

“It’s amazing to see how deeply engrossed and fascinated our fans have been with the lore of the Skylanders franchise,” said John Coyne, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Activision Publishing, Inc. “By unveiling new Light and Dark elements and heroes to the Skylanders universe, our fans around the world will have new ways of exploring all the magic, excitement and fun of Skylands.”

The introduction of Light and Dark elements reveals additional back story of the Skylanders universe for fans to explore. Long ago, Knight Light and Knight Mare were both protectors of Skylands until being sealed off in other realms. Now that they have joined the Trap Masters, Knight Light wields his Traptanium Blade and Knight Mare unleashes her deadly Traptanium Lance to bring down evil everywhere!

There are images popping up on the Internet of the Wave 3 Trap Masters at Walmart stores on the West Coast as well as the expansion packs. Blackout and Spotlight look amazing! Who are you excited to play with the most? Team Light or Team Dark? Take our poll and let us know what side you are on. To get a closer look at these beautiful figures check out the video and the images in the gallery below. Until next time I will catch you on the SKYSIDE! BOOM!

Toys R Us Receiving Wave 3 Shipments & More


Hey Addicts!

This weekend is going to be legen… wait for it… dary! According to my sources Toys R Us stores have received shipments of Wave 3 cases. I also have been told that this wave is set to be released this Sunday 12/21/14. Can we expect to see Trap Masters Blastermind, Ka-Boom, and Tuff Luck in this weekends release? One of my sources says yes another source says TRU will not be receiving the Trap Masters or Core Skylanders before the holidays only the Light Element Packs.

I sure hope the latter isn’t the case there would be a lot of sad Portal Masters out there this holiday season. Be on the lookout for the TRU Hot Toy Alert coming to an email near you. I’m super excited to get my hands on Knightlight he looks so epic! Well that is all the info I have at the moment check out the images in the gallery of the Trap Masters & Core figures as well as the video review of the figures. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
