Three more Skylanders figures — Sunburn, Lightning Rod, and Zook — are available in stores now. However, this doesn’t guarantee you will ever find them. I still haven’t been able to track down any of the last wave of Skylanders. Apparently I’m not trying hard enough.
Sunburn comes as part of the Dragon’s Peak Adventure Pack. The set also includes the Dragon’s Peak level and two item figures — Winged Boots and Sparx Dragonfly — all of which can be played in Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. With Sunburn, you can now complete your collection of Fire Skylanders, making Ignitor, Eruptor, Flameslinger, and Sunburn himself more powerful. Dragon’s Peak is also the final Adventure Pack after Empire of Ice, Darklight Crypt, and Pirate Seas. At $19.99 per Adventure Pack, completing your collection won’t come cheap.
Lightning Rod is an Air Skylander, of which only two have been previously released (SonicBoom and Whirlwind being the other two). If you are in need of an Air Skylander, Lightning Rod looks like a solid choice. As his name would suggest, he summons bolts of lightning to destroy everything in his path. Personally, I’m waiting for Warnado, the final Air Skylander, although Lightning Rod does have quite a tempting beard.
Finally, we have Zook, a bazooka-wielding Life Skylander. Zook is the third Life Skylander after Stealth Elf and Stump Smash, both close combat characters. In contrast, Zook provides long-range firepower to blast enemies from a distance. If you’re looking for a ranged character, Zook should fill that role nicely.
Only three Skylanders remain unreleased — Warnado, Camo, and Wham Shell — completing Air, Life, and Water respectively. These three will undoubtedly make up the final wave of Skylanders, hopefully giving fans enough time to buy them all before Skylanders: Giants is released this fall.
The hunt begins! Be ahead of the game and find these new Skylanders right as they appear in stores.
