Target Exclusives: Nitro Head Rush and Easter Edition Weeruptor Coming Soon!


Hey Addicts!

I woke up to a message from NOE telling me to check out Dark Spyro. Of course I jumped up and hit the net to see what was going on. At first I looked at the post and was like “Really? Nitro Head Rush Info… Eh!” then I noticed a comment that made me understand what the fuss was about. According to DS user Txholdem1224 there will be an exclusive Special Easter Edition Weeruptor Mini Skylander and Earth Trap.

This is awesome news! I’m not sure if the Weeruptor and Earth trap will come together, but it is nice to know that we will be getting easter exclusives from TRU and Target. Here is the DPCI to help you out while you are on the hunt: 207-00-3014.

Now back to Nitro Head Rush as we already know she is being seen on the shelves of Target stores, but the figures are register locked with a release date of 2/15. What you may not know is the DPCI so here it goes: 207-00-3012. Hopefully having this bit of extra information will help you guys get your hands on these with no issues. DS user star kitty posted some images of the Nitro Head Rush figure they spotted but couldn’t purchase. Check out the images in the gallery below. Special thanks to NOE, Star Kitty, and TxHoldEm for the heads up.

Until next time “Catch you on the SKYSIDE!”

MAILLLLLLL! Surprise Package


Hey Addicts!

I went to collect the mail and noticed I had a surprise package from Activision I didn’t know what it was, but boy was I stoked to see what it was when I opened the package. Check out what was inside…

Yes! Love Potion Pop Fizz the official Valentine’s Day Skylanders Toy for Skylanders Trap Team. So have you been wondering how Pop Fizz turned into Love Potion Pop Fizz? Well I happen to have to scoop…

It is said that when his latest attempt to concoct the ultimate raspberry soda totally backfired, Pop Fizz was caught in a blast that turned him pink and gave him an alluring aroma. At least that’s how he tells it. But with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the Skylanders are wondering if Pop Fizz is telling the truth… or if there is a special someone who he is trying to impress.

I wonder who Pop Fizz could be trying to get some affection from? Guess we will have to wait and see. Currently Target is the only retailer with it shelved, but Best Buy will release him on 02/01 and Toys R Us on 02/07.  For all our UK readers he can also be pre-ordered at your local GAME store. Good Luck Hunting! Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

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!

Skylander Addicts Review-Light & Dark Expansion Packs


skylander-addicts-reviews-light-dark-expansion-packs

 

Hey Addicts!

Got another fun-filled episode of Skylander Addicts TV loaded up on YouTube. This time I’m reviewing the much-anticipated Light & Dark Expansion Packs. I decided to do this episode using Black Lights to celebrate the release of the Light and Dark Expansion Packs take a minute to look at how that turned out.

Well guys my Loot Crate just came in so I’m going to bust it open and see what I got. This months subscription has an exclusive Funko Pop! Vinyl in it can you say happier than a kid trapped in a candy store? 🙂 Hope you all enjoy the video… Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

 

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!

Eruptor2

 

Hey Addicts!

In just a few more days our bellies will be full of Turkey and all kinds of scrumptious sides and desserts, but what I’m most excited about is the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Me being from NYC it was a tradition to see the parade I loved watching all the amazing balloons float through the air owning the city for that moment. My favorite balloons throughout the years have been Kermit, Garfield, and Snoopy to name a few. Now all that has changed with Eruptor making his debut at the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade in a few days he is now my all time favorite! I’ll be glued to the tube come Thanksgiving morning with my Skylander PJ’s on enjoying the parade in all its glory. Take a look at the Behind-The-Scenes video of how Activision is prepping Eruptor for the big day.

Editors Note: Video has been added Sorry!

Also expect to see a lot of other Skylanders related merchandise as well.

Skylanders Snap Shot Makes Cameo Appearance In New Target Commercial


Hey Addicts!

Man Activision is doing it extra big on the marketing and promotion side of things. They are on Frito Lay bags, General Mills snacks, Yoplait yogurts, soon to be on Crayola coloring pages, and just announced that Eruptor will be at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you got to any retailer that sells Skylanders it would seem like the displays are even beefed up and nicely stocked especially at Toy R Us and Target. Speaking of Target have you seen the new “Alice in Marshmallow Land” Target commercial? If you have, did you notice that lead Trap Master SnapShot makes a cameo appearance along with other popular toys like Barbie and Leo from the Ninja Turtles. I think it is a very cute commercial. Take a look at the extended version and tell me if you agree. Until next time “Catch you on the SKYSIDE!”
