Hey Addicts!

In an unexpected turn of events Toys R Us released a small stock of Batspin and High Five Core Skylanders as well as the expected Red Hot Trap, Easter Edition Figures, and Wave 4 Traps, Trap Masters, and Cores. Some lucky Portal Masters have found Crystal Clear Variants in-store which is Boomtastic! Congrats to you that have. The shelves seemed pretty well stocked from the pictures I have seen. I couldn’t get out to take advantage of any of these awesome releases that have happened in the past few days. I hope to be able to get out this weekend and get some leftovers. I unfortunately think I will be SOL! ūüė¶

I was really surprised to see Batspin & High-Five but was very happy to know that they have been released. I think they will be rare figures from this set like Hot Dog was for Swap-Force hopefully not.¬†Looks like there are tons of Kaos Traps now so it won’t be so rare anymore. (Ha Take That Scalpers!) How many of you were finally able to add Kaos and the new figures to your collection? Show me what cha got! (I’m living vicariously through you all lol!)

Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Skylanders Trap Team Wave 4 Revealed

Hey Addicts!

Got some awesome news from the folks over at Today they released a complete list of what we can expect to see hit stores when wave 4 comes and I’m pretty amped about a few things that are coming. Since their site is in German I took the liberty of translating it for you guys as best I could so here it goes.

We are looking at a projected date of wave 4 being released sometime in March. I’m not sure if that is¬†the US release or if that is the projected date for overseas Portal Masters, but either way that’s good news to me. Looks like there will be six core Skylanders coming in wave 4 included are:

Core Skylanders

  • Echo-Water Element
  • Rocky Roll-Earth Element
  • Spotlight- Light Element
  • Blackout-Dark Element
  • High Five-Life Element
  • Batspin-Undead Element

Glad to see we will finally see High Five and Batspin hit US stores I’m super pumped to get my hands on Spotlight and Blackout they look awesome and I bet they play just as well as they look if not better. Two of the most anticipated Skylanders Trap Masters will finally be making appearance in this wave along with Single pack versions of the Light and Dark Trap Masters.

Trap Masters

  • Short Cut
  • Thunderbolt
  • Knightmare
  • Knightlight

I just realized about a week ago that Short Cut was a Trap Master. I was already excited to add him to my collection when I first saw him, but after finding out he was a Trap Master I wanted him even more. Thunderbolt looks so BOSS he is definitely a must have for me I want to see how well he plays his attacks look sick! We will be seeing another wave of traps as well included are:


  • Rocket Light Trap
  • Rocket Magic Trap
  • Sword Shadow Trap
  • Sword Air Trap
  • Sword Life Trap
  • Upside Down Guy Shadow Trap
  • Upside Down Guy Earth¬†Trap
  • Spear Fire Trap
  • Spear UndeadTrap
  • Axe Water Trap
  • Kaos Trap

Also listed are 2 Triple Pack Trap Packs do not know what will included in the packs, but I’m sure it will be the same as it¬†has been released in earlier waves as a way to save a little cash and get more traps. Those of you that do not have a Kaos trap (I need another one)¬†will have another chance at getting this hard to get trap before it becomes unavailable again. I’m sure there will be more Kaos traps in the wave but you still will want to get to your local stores early when they go on sale.

There are two new mini packs coming as well included in these packs are:

Mini Skylanders

  • Pet Vac (Jet-Vac)-Air Element
  • Breeze (Whirlwind)-Air Element
  • Barkley (Tree Rex)-Life Element
  • Whisper Elf (Stealth Elf)-Life Element

We will also see more of Mini Pack 5 (Gill Runt & Thumpling) and Mini Pack 6 (Small Fry & Weeruptor). There are some things expected to be released as well but not in wave 4 they will have their own separate releases or come in a mini wave. We already know about Nitro Head Rush, Legendary Bush Whack, and Love Potion Pop Fizz, but who else is coming? Here is a list of things we should see from now until at least April.

  • Enigma
  • Gearshift
  • Flip Wreck
  • Fling Kong
  • Triple Pack (Deja Vu / Rocky Roll / echo)
  • Triple Pack (Blackout / Fling Kong / Pop Fizz)
  • King Cobra Cadabra
  • Gnarly Barkley
  • Yawn Trap
  • Praise Goblin (Trap Variant)
  • Steampunk Shrednought (Trap Variant)
  • Eon’s Elite: Eruptor & Gill Grunt

I’m glad to see Gear Shift will be getting¬†another run she is still around in some stores, but it will make her more available for those of us that haven’t gotten her yet (I need another one of her too lol). I so hope Enigma comes out in a mini wave-like a 4.5 or something I have to have him on my portal asap! Also mentioned in the article are the Easter Edition Trap Team figures, but I’m going to do a separate post about these as I feel they deserve to have a post just about them. I do not have an exact release date on any of this stuff just projected dates or a figure and trap case break down or anything like that, but when I get the info trust and believe I’ll be letting you know. Take a minute to show us some love on our social sites I love to see what new things you all are adding to your collections, game tips, or just shoot the breeze (Pun intended). Thanks to MySkylanders.De for giving us this awesome info. Happy Hunting All! Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Gotta Get Them All! Skylanders Wave 4 Updates & Rumors


Hey Addicts!

It’s your friendly neighborhood Skylander Addict here with some more rumors about wave 4. Could they be true? Well, that is the point of rumors isn’t? Putting us on edge hoping and praying that what is said is totally true??? As much as some people hate rumors they are what fuel social media outlets everywhere. Some of us can’t wait to hear the next hot piece of juicy gossip. So much that we will start our own rumors and state them as true hence why we have so many tabloids and urban legends.

Well to celebrate the spirit of good old rumors here are a few that may tickle your fancy…

Rumor 1:

Walmart may be releasing the Easter Edition Skylanders before Best Buy releases theirs.

Some Portal Masters have seen some really cool displays show up in Walmart stores with the Easter Skylanders on them. We haven’t physically seen any of them stocked in the displays, but we have seen some wave 4 core figures like Fire Bone Hot Dog and Scratch as well LightCore Enchanted Star Strike appear in these displays at locations here in the US. SpringTime Trigger Happy has been sighted on the West Coast. So keep your eyes peeled as it looks we just may get an Easter surprise early.

Rumor 2: 

Jade Fire Kraken is coming soon!

There where a few rumors and speculations Jade Fire Kraken being released on St. Patrick’s Day at Target like Jade FlashWing was with last years Giants release. So much for that theory because as we all know there was no release at all for Jade Fire Kraken. Now that is not to say that he isn’t going to turn up soon we just don’t know when as of yet. But we do know that Jade Fire Kraken will not I REPEAT WILL NOT! be a Target exclusive

Rumor 3:

Doom Stone was suppose to be released with this latest wave.

When I called one of my local Toys R Us stores to ask about wave 4 swappers and core figures the sales associated informed me they had just gotten there shipment of swappers but no new core figures or Doom Stone. O_o He said that they where suppose to be getting Doom Stone in this wave but never got him. Don’t know if he was removed from this wave and saved for a later release or if this is complete utter BS and the TRU employee just didn’t know what he was talking about. I have since checked with some of my other sources and they have heard nothing, so I’m going with BS.

Rumor 4:  

Nitro Freeze Blade and Nitro Magna Charge are coming to Target tomorrow.

EHHHHHHHH! Wrong! We may see some stores putting them up on the shelf, but the register has them locked so they can’t be sold until Sunday 3/23/14. Which isn’t to bad at least we will be able to get them this weekend so we can get a little excited… Ok a lot of excited lol!


Last but certainly not least our final rumor and biggest one of them all!

Rumor 5: 

Skylander Addicts is shut down!

I was asked by a few people if the Skylander Addicts store page is closed. Well it is but just for now it will be back eventually just right now I am working towards giving you nothing but entertaining and up to the minute info about your favorite Skylanders and other HOT Toys! We still will continue to help our readers try to finish up there collections the shop just won’t be open for the time being. I would like to say to everyone that has shown me and Skylander Addicts their support from the bottom of my heart thank you very much. I have a lot of stuff planned for the future, so get comfy, find a spot to SKYLAX on this crazy airship I call a blog, and enjoy the ride! ūüôā

By the way, if you still are looking for Wave 4 Core Skylanders you may want to call your local Toys R Us. I heard from fellow addict GrowUpKids that they had Scratch, Fire Bone Hot Dog, Turbo Jet Vac, and Fryno at his local store. Good Luck!

Trap Shadow And Freeze Blade Coming To Toys R Us

TRAPANDFREEZEPICHey Addicts! The newest rumor is that Trap Shadow and Freeze Blade will be making an appearance in small quantity at¬†Toys R Us in 2 days 3/13/14. I originally saw a post on Dark Spyro talking about this, but there was no one that really knew the date. Some were saying it may not come out until Sunday 4/13/14. I was not sure what to believe so I had to hit up a few of my sources. In the process of doing so a little birdie came and told me that they were indeed going to be out this Thursday. This birdie has never steered me in the wrong direction before, so I am going to be going to my local TRU Thursday morning to see if they are indeed in store. I would call ahead just incase so that you don’t make a wasted trip. These are two of the most anticipated figures on my list and probably many of yours. I really hope they do come out this Thursday. If not it gives more time to get more money to grab more stuff when they actually do. Well looks like I have to put together a game plan for my hunt this week. Good Luck Hunting Addicts! Catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Skylanders Wave 4 Hits Wal-Mart Stores

Oh YEAH! A new wave has been spotted at Wal-mart’s on the West Coast according to members of Dark Spyro and other Skylanders Fan Pages on Facebook. I personally have not had the pleasure of getting any of these yet. I do have a buddy that just scored doubles of the wave from California. If you are on the West Coast and haven’t already gotten this wave from your local Wal-Mart I’d get to hunting before they are gone. Hot Dog looks so freaking cool! I have been waiting on him to be released as well as the others, but Hot Dog is one of my favorite characters. I am wondering where Punk Shock is? Or will she just be apart of the Best Buy Exclusives for now??? Take a look a the pic below to see what they all look like. Special thanks go to Edwin Johnson for sharing the pic. Catch you on the SKYSIDE!
