Something fishy is going on Portal Masters and I’m trying to get to the bottom of it. So I posted earlier today about the single pack easter edition figures being a rumor. Well this evening futureshop.ca (Canadian version of Best Buy), Best Buy, and Amazon have listed the same single packs that were thought to be fakes.
It is not certain what is going on, but Eggscellent Weeruptor’s name is spelled wrong in all the images. Although the image I posted was fan made it seems to be of a genuine product unless the images were snatched from the same online source and it all is incorrect. I highly doubt that is the case so here are my assumptions on what is going on…
We know that Target and Toys R Us will have their own Skylanders Easter Edition figures with Toys R Us also releasing an exclusive Russle Sprout trap, but they are supposed to be packed together not in single package form. With other major retailers listing single packs with a late March release it leads me to believe that every other retailer maybe receiving single pack easter figures and Target and TRU will have separate easter sets at their locations.
I’m sure we will have exact release dates for everything after Toy Fair, speaking of Toy Fair a lot of us were not sure if Activision would be attending this years event. Today we got conformation that Activision would indeed be at Toy Fair but at a smaller booth than usual.
I’m stoked to get some more Skylanders news I don’t think we will hear anything about the new game but I do think we will see the easter figures, some other variants, and possibly get a new Toy Fair Exclusive Skylander. Toy Fair kicks off tomorrow so hopefully we will get some good news and images then.
So what are your thoughts on this whole thing? What do you thing is going on with the easter release? Leave a comment and let me know. I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on what I find as usual. Until next time I will catch you on the “SKYSIDE!”
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!
