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!

Skylanders Bringing Forty New Figures this Fall

An interview between Family Gamer TV’s Andy Robertson, and Toys for Bob co-founder Fred Ford (currently tech. director), detailed a lot of new Skylanders details, and we mean a lot! Ford confirmed there will be eight Giant Skylanders, one for each type, and that all eight of the giants should have some parts that light up, when placed on the portal. There will  be eight brand new regular sized skylanders, and eight light force skylanders (Light force skylanders are figures with light up pieces, as shown below in this prototype Prism Break); Four of the light force figures will be from the new regular sized skylanders, and the other four will be from the original thirty-two skylanders. Lastly, Robertson reported that the original skylanders will be re-released starting in the fall, and of those 32, 24 of the figures will feature new poses, such as holding a different item, or standing on hind legs, etc.. These figures will have no change within the game, but will be a whole new way for collectors to spend money, and sadly, I am on of those collectors, who loves blowing money on Skylanders. So all together, that’s estimated amount of 40-48 new figures starting this Fall, as well as a new game! We’ll give you more information as it comes, spread the word, and be sure to check out my Ready, Flame, Fire blog, to get your chance at some rare Skylanders!!

Ready, Flame, Fire!


Ready, Flame, Fire! Everyone has their favorite Skylander, but for me, I cant pick just one! I’ll start with Flameslinger, and I invite you to participate! As I announced, I will be giving  away a few Skylanders, and you all have a chance to snag them! All you have to do is comment on this blog, and tell us who your favorite Skylander is, why they are your favorite, and lastly, tell us which element you would choose to add to the current eight elements! After twenty individual comments have been made, I will select the winner! Spread the word, comment now, and cross your fingers!

One of my favorite Skylanders is the elven archer, Flameslinger. His quick and fiery moves are accurate, long-range, and dangerously explosive! Flameslinger loves to show off his talents, and even wears a blindfold to prove it! Having earned his Fiery Bow from a fire spirit at a young age, Flameslinger has mastered the skill of the bow, and when he strikes, he leaves only scorched ground behind him.

If I could select a new element to add to the original eight, it would be Celestial. Benevolent Skylanders, that fight only for the greater good. These skylanders would have no weapons or physical attack. Instead they would focus on the aura of celestial spirits, summoning blasts of astral aura, turning accursed enemies against other enemies, or even firing a wrath of seraphic stars against the enemy, sent from the skies above! Celestial Skylanders could be white or or a gleaming yellow, some may sport halos, some may wear the robes of their benevolent forefathers, or even a glorious winged horse!

Post your comments, and the winners will soon be announced. I’ll bring updates as they come. SPREAD THE WORD!
