Now by no means do I really think it is a good idea to eat a Skylander. I don’t think that it would taste that great or feel good coming out if you know what I mean, but have you ever been having lunch and thought it would be cool to have Skylanders food. Well thanks to the folks over at Kid Cuisine we have a new way to enjoy defeating Kaos with our stomachs! From now until April we will be able to enjoy 9 different Skylanders themed meals. Check out the press release below.
- Cheese Pizza
- Beef Patty
- Mac & Cheese
- Fish Sticks
- Mini Corn Dogs
- Fun Nuggets
- Popcorn Chicken
- Stuffed Crust Pepperoni Pizza
As some of you may already know Battlecast is coming real soon! Thanks to Skylanders Inquirer, Dark Spyro, and a few other Skylanders blogs we have a little more info about what we can expect to receive once we purchase our first batch of cards. Here is a break down of the game thus far.
First thing to note is that there will be over 270 cards to collect. That is just to much power for one portal master to handle LOL! There are 4 card categories:
- Character Cards-Used to summon Skylanders to cast spells or attack.
- Spell Cards-Used to cast spells (of course).
- Gear Cards-Used to upgrade your Skylander.
- Relic Cards- Used to change the gameplay.
In the tradition of card games there is a rarity scale, a 4 level rarity scale to be exact.
Common, Rare, Epic, and Ultimate are the levels the cards will be broken down into.
The cards will be packaged for purchase in two ways. You can buy the Booster Packs which include 8 cards not sure if there is a guaranteed rare card included as of yet, but I’m sure there will be. Or you can buy the Battle Packs that includes 22 cards, and a ‘Trading Shield’.
What the Heck is a Trading Shield? I asked myself the same question. Well according to Skylanders Inquirer a ‘Trading Shield’ is used to trade cards, post pictures of your cards, etc. because once the cards are scanned into the game via the code on the edge of the card. The card becomes non-transferable the shield also protects your code from being used when you do share.
The price of each pack has not been stated for us here in the US, but going by the price Skylanders Inquirer stated they were $7.99 NZD (approx. $5.45 USD) for the Booster Packs and $16.99 (approx. $11.64 USD) for the Battle Packs.
I am guessing the price will be between $5.99 to $6.99 USD for the Boosters and $11.99 to $12.99 USD for the Battle Packs. We will have to wait a bit longer for a definitive answer.
Here is a list of the some of the cards thus far…
- Smash Hit
- Snap Shot
- Stealth Elf
- Trigger Happy
- Food Fight
- Hot Head
- Pop Fizz
- Roller Brawl
- Krypt King
- Tree Rex
- Wash Buckler
I can’t wait to start playing this! I already play Hearthstone and Battlecast is just a kid friendly version of that game, so I think I’ll enjoy it just as much. If you are a Hearthstone player you know what I mean. With Activision buying the MLG organization will we see a worldwide Battlecast Tournament? That would be BOOMTASTIC!!!
Want some cards? Head on over to Skylanders.Com and click the links next to the images to get Spitfire and Stealth Elf.
Special thanks to Jason over at Skylanders Inquirer for scoop and posting the images. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
I mentioned earlier that there is a new variant of Pop Fizz being made. Pop Fizz seems to be a character that has a pretty nice amount of variants since his release (that is another post in itself).
The latest variant of the character is Birthday Big Bubble Pop Fizz. No details as to when this figure will be released as of yet, but we do have an image of the toy as well as artwork image thanks to myskylanders.de
When more info surfaces on this I’ll update you all on what I find out. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
As we posted on our Facebook page Nitro Soda Skimmer has popped up at a few Target stores. So keep your eyes peeled while you are out hunting.
Hope you can add yet another cool variant to your collection. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Happy New Year! There has been a bunch of craziness going on in the world of Skylanders. New Skymiibo Dual packs, Kaos Trophy single pack, possible Dark Edition Dual packs being released, Birthday Big Bubble Pop Fizz, and BATTLECAST! I’ll be posting more info about this stuff later.
Skylanders Inquirer and Myskylanders.de have been running some wonderful Skylanders news articles giving us a bunch of info about what’s coming. Check them out when you can.
I wanted to give you all a heads up about the new Skylanders day at Gamestop. Here is a look at all the deals you can find that day.
These are some sweet deals on Skylanders stuff great time to get things you are missing until the new wave is released. Until next time i’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
It officially Christmas time and the Skylanders have given us yet another holiday tune. Check out the video below and Happy Holidays!
Some of you may have gotten lucky and already gotten your hands on some of Wave 3. Images have been popping up online from different sources stating they are starting to hit shelves.
Wave 3 is suppose to be released in the US on the 1st of December, Germany December 18th, and Australia December 12th. If you want to know what is all suppose to come in Wave 3 click the link below. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
This may be old news to you all that follow tons of groups like me, but for those of you that haven’t heard the news a new variant has popped up on Ebay. This variant is also a patina so we now have 2 of this particular variant to be on the hunt for. The first being the High Volt variant which not many of us have been lucky enough to find in the wild. The newest variant release is Patina Lava Lance Eruptor.
I am hoping that I will get my hands on one of these guys, but I’ve only seen chase figures in the wild one time and have never since gotten the chance to again (I am hopeful). Are you a chaser? Do you own any chase figures? If you could have any chase figure what would it be?
I wonder who will be the next patina variant? Will it be another Skylander or will it be a vehicle? I kind of would like to see a patina version of the Shark Tank. What vehicle would you like to see get a patina makeover? Well that’s it for now folks be sure to follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and show us some love on Instagram. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
