The internet has been going nuts about the Skylanders Mega Bloks images released by figures.com earlier today. They are pics of the upcoming Skylanders play sets, vehicle sets, construction sets, etc. that Mega Bloks will be releasing later this year. There are some familiar faces making another appearance, but a few things stick out like sore thumbs. There seems to be a few new characters pictured in some of the unreleased sets. Rumor has it that these are some of the new characters and items that may appear in the new Skylanders game.
We can see a Gold Lion character being released with the up coming Fire Fortress Elemental Zone construction set.
There also seems to be a knight character that seems to have a Legendary Skylander color scheme (black/gold) being included in the Cutthroath Carnival construction set. He strongly resembles the Undead Giant prototype that never made the cut (see pic below).
There also is a set of ranger vehicles and hero figures that look really cool!
Again we see a new character in the Sky Hero Figure set he is toting twin Mega Hammers. I can’t tell what he is but he is orange and is wearing a gold helmet as well. Can one assume that these figures and vehicles will be added to the new game. If so will all the characters have a vehicle or will it be just a choice few? Maybe just the series 4 re-poses? Hmm….
There are pictures of other things that will be released such as Battle Packs and Battlers, which seem to be the new version of the battle portals.
There is also a new set of weapons being released, which are Chop Chop’s Sword and Ranger Bow & Arrow.
Now I know you maybe asking yourself what is a Ranger Bow & Arrow? Well there is a picture of a new dragon warrior or lizard fish character being released in the Skylanders Pirate Cove construction set. He is wielding a bow and arrow that resembles the Ranger Bow & Arrow pictured. We are assuming that Ranger is the name of the unknown character, but we have no conformation of that until we get more updates about the new game.
Apparently, the newest installment to the franchise is and I quote “A Game Changer”. So what do you think Activision has up it’s sleeve? Are you even more excited to see what the new game will be? Well, whatever it is I can’t wait to see it, own it, and play it! As always we will keep you updated as we get more information. Special thanks to Figures.Com and Dark Spyro followers Diggeh and Mattomax for sharing the info. Catch you on the SKYSIDE!
Hands-on with Skylanders Spring Edition: Springtime Trigger Happy, Punk Shock, and Fryno review – Pocket-lint
Here is a quick look at some of the wave 4 figures that Activision displayed at Toy Fair 2014. Pocket-Lint had a chance to get a hands on experience with them. They look even better out of package than in. Enjoy
If you are like me you are pretty excited to see what the new Skylanders game will be. We know that Activision has a booth at Toy Fair 2014 this year but what we don’t know is if they will announce anything about the upcoming game other than it is coming. Hopefully we will still see a toy fair variant like we have at previous events. Keeping my fingers crossed.
In other news, there seems to be another Frito Lay contest coming up. I’m not sure how I’m going to feel about this one seeing as the last contest didn’t go so well. It begins in 16 days 2/24/14 and it is a name the next hero of Skylands contest. I’m hoping this one runs a lot smoother one can hope right?
