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, MySkylanders.de, 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!

Burn Rubber With Skylanders Supercharged RC Racers


 

Hey Addicts!

When Activision first announced that vehicles would be the gimmick of the latest installment of Skylanders I just knew RC racers would be coming it just made sense and I was right. The NYKO company who is responsible for making all kinds of third-party accessories for video games has teamed up with Activision and created some really awesome looking Skylanders Superchargers themed RC race cars.

So far only two of the race cars are available to order via GameStop’s online store. The RC cars look like the vehicles we play with in the game. The Skylander that owns the vehicle is seen in the driver’s seat for example Fiesta and Crypt Crusher are used in the game to create a Supercharged vehicle and they are also used to create these sweet looking RC racers. The other character available is Spitfire and Hot Streak. They are $29.99 each which isn’t to bad of a price for an RC, but what I want to know is how they function? Are they hard to control? Can they do tricks like some of the really cool RC racers? Are they durable? Kids will be crashing these things into walls left and right will they crumble after one or two crashes forcing us to have to get a replacement? Or will they stand the test of time?

I’m going to be getting both of these cars not only to review, but to play around with my son we both love toys and cars. Definitely will be having some fun with these. I am hoping that we don’t just get RC Race Cars, but also get a helicopters, planes, bikes and boats. That way we can also get a chance to use the Land, Sea, and Air concept with the RC’s.  If you are interested in owning a set of these just click this trusty link right here (Fiesta) and here (Spitfire). Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
