Wave 4 Plus New Variants

Hey Addicts!

Skylanders fans around the world are going crazy with the news of new figures and vehicles being released. With wave 4 Activision seems to have some surprises for us let’s take a look.


Wave 4 Vehicles

Thanks to Dark Spyro,, SCL, and Skylanders Inquirer we have images of what the vehicles will look like. There are 5 vehicles included in this wave one being the Easter in – game variant Spring Ahead Dive Bomber. The other vehicles are…

  • Soda Skimmer
  • Sun Runner
  • Tomb Buggy
  • Hot Streak

Hot Streak is making it’s first appearance outside of the starter pack. This is a great opportunity to add this vehicle to your collection without buying a starter. For those of you that just want Astro Blast and Sun Runner you have your chance to do so as well. I think it would be better to get the racing pack personally so that you can get the trophy, but any way to save cash and still enjoy the game is the goal.

Wave 4 Figures

Looks like there are only 3 figures in this wave (4 if you count Happy/Eggcited Thrillipede).


  • Astroblast
  • Bone Bash Roller Brawl
  • Spitfire

This is a very weird release I say that because the only new figure is Bone Bash Roller Brawl. The other figures have already been released in the Regular Starter Pack and the Sky Racing Pack. Bone Bash will also be included in a Dual Pack with Tomb Buggy and a Triple Pack with Tomb Buggy and Splatter Splasher. Also making a Dual Pack appearance is Big Bubble Pop Fizz and the Soda Skimmer.

Once again we get more variants in this wave. This time around they are bronze/copper in color. Bone Bash and Tomb Buggy both get the shiny metallic makeover. So far a few of them have been sited. The image of BB Roller Brawl was posted by a store employee on the Skylanders Game page and Instagram user @smoldersmith posted the image of the Tomb Buggy variant.

I am loving the new variants! This game seems to have the most variants thus far. How do you feel about all these variants? Do you think it is a good or a bad thing for the franchise? Will you be chasing these down? Let me know what you think in the comment section or sound off on the Facebook page. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and all our other social media pages. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Variants Galore! Images And More!

Hey Addicts!

I posted most of this info on the FB page but wanted to do an updated compiled post on the expected and spotted variants from Superchargers.

We already know about Happy Thrillapede but there is another easter/spring variant coming in 2016 and it’s a vehicle! Feast your eyes on this!


Purdy isn’t it? This is Spring Dive Bomber no release date has been announced yet on either of the spring variants I will keep you all posted when I get more info. If this spring release stays true to earlier releases there is still one more unannounced spring variant. I wonder who it will be if they decide to stick to the formula?

Next up we have what I like to call Patina High Volt this is one cool looking variant first in the series to have this type of paint job.


This is what is called a chase variant. I will break the meaning of the word “chase” down further for those of you that have no clue what I am talking about in my next guide. In a nut shell this will be a very rare and hard to get figure. One that collector’s will “chase” after for years to come. I hope we will see more variants like this who do you think will be next to get a chase makeover?

Speaking of “chase” have you had the chance to catch this sweet “chase variant” while out on the hunt?


Only available in PS4 and XBox One console starter packs. These started popping up everywhere online on release day. I happened to see two of them while hunting but couldn’t afford to grab one hopefully I get lucky in a few days (fingers crossed).


Of course by now most of you know that there will be a Legendary Sky Racing Action Pack which will include the Sky Trophy, Legendary Astroblast and the Legendary Sun Runner. We also know that it is exclusive to Toys r Us stores. What we don’t know is when the action pack will officially be released.

skylanderaddictsblog skylanderaddictsblog skylanderaddictsblog skylanderaddictsblogThere have been sightings of this pack in Denmark, so hopefully we will see this new racing pack in US stores soon. You can see a pretty nice unboxing video from MySkylanders.De on YouTube via their channel. Take a look when you get a chance if you haven’t already.

The second Nitro variant in this series will be Nitro Soda Skimmer. Of course this will be another Target exclusive here in the US no release date has been announced either.


I am a big fan of the Nitro series instantly fell in love with these variants with the release of Nitro Magna Charge in Swap Force. Since then a set of Nitro figures has come with every release like the Legendary and Dark figures. Nitro Stealth Stinger has already been released, but my question is will there be a Nitro Skylander figure to match the vehicle? One can only hope so.

Last but not least the best news to me is that we will see what is being called “Power Blue” variants of Splat, her vehicle, and my fave tech lander Trigger Happy’s vehicle. There is no release date, but from the images we can see that they will be in-game variants. No store has announced that they are going to be carrying these variants, but I have a sneaky suspicion that we may see these in Walmart stores as their Exclusive variant much like Target and TRU. I sure hope we get a Power Blue Trigger Happy to match his vehicle as well.


Man that was a mouthful! Hope you all have gotten your fix today from all this info if not I suppose you could go in for another filling lol! What variants listed are you looking forward to adding to your collection?
