Spyro’s Universe Expands the Skylands

I’ve really enjoyed Skylanders: Spyro’s Universe for a few reasons that really set it aside from the console adventures. It never gets old to head to the Mainland, and show off your Skylander collection. Last night I activated one of my Legendary Trigger Happys, pranced him around the Mainland, and before I knew it my friend requests were blowing up! When the beta for Universe was first released, I definitely felt that it was missing some customization and other elements, and it just didn’t feel fully formed yet. After a few updates, Spyro’s Universe really started to pull through, and gained much more of my time. I’ve had a blast customizing my Skyland (Shown Below), and the mini-games are increasingly tolerable. Flora and Lore Tablet collection is fairly addictive, and the level cap is 25, so you’ll get plenty of game out of your Skylanders. What are your thoughts on Spyro’s Universe? Do you feel that it adds to the adventure of Skylanders, or that it merely drives the repetitive stake deeper into the game? Leave your comments below, I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Check back tomorrow for the contest results, and be sure to read my Skylanders Schedule, more skylanders are to be released very soon!

Legendary Trigger Happy to Feature NEW Abilities

March is approaching quickly, and with it, more details are trickling down about some new Skylander figures being released “pre-exclusively” to Toys ‘R Us. The Dragon’s Peak, Iridescent Blue Bash, and Legendary Trigger Happy are all being released to Toys ‘R Us through March, then to other retailers, as most of you know. Featured above is the most unique Legendary Skylander to be sold yet, Trigger Happy. Just as the previous Legendaries, Trigger Happy features blue and gold coloring, and increased stats, such as attack or defense. But what stands out the most about this Legendary Trigger Happy, is that he will feature brand new abilities, not seen in the previous standard Trigger Happy. Few details have emerged about these abilities, but I can only hope, the new abilities will be focused around his fierce “goldslingers”! We’ll keep you updated as more info comes on Legendary Trigger Happy. Time is running out for our rare skylander contest, so be sure to check out our next blog for a chance on extra entries!

Figure Realm Brings Life to Skylanders

FigureRealm, a custom action figure site, has found a way to articulate Skylander figures, giving them free form, joints, accessories, and more! These Skylanders can be pinned onto their element piece, or you can pop them off and play with them as you would a regular action figure! This creates more imagination for the younger kids, as well as more diversity for the collectors. The best part is, they still work perfectly on the Portal of Power! Figure Realm has really done an incredible job with these figures, so be sure to check them out! Check out the images below and check out the site here. Spread the word and click here to enter for a chance to win a rare Skylander!
