All of the core 32 figures in Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure have been released with this week’s announcement of Camo, Wham Shell, and Warnado. With the final three figures being released now, we only have until this fall to get caught up with our collections before Skylanders: Giants unleashes a whole new wave of plastic monsters on us.
Over a month ago, I reported on three previous Skylanders figures being released. I still have never seen them. Maybe I’ll have better luck finding these three.
Skylanders: Giants is still many months away, so Skylanders publisher Activision is finding ways to fill the gap while consumers frantically try to complete their Skylanders collections. They already have several Skylanders books for kids on the release schedule, ranging from a complete novel titled The Machine of Doom to a Skylanders sticker book.
Also this week, Activision released Skylanders: Cloud Patrol for iOS. You fly around as your favorite Skylanders shooting at Trolls to earn points. The character codes included with Skylanders figures can unlock them in Cloud Patrol. Now your Skylanders can be on your iPhone too. They’re everywhere! Well, except Android.
With the final figure releases, an iOS game, and a novelization, what else might Activision have planned for their all-conquering franchise? I grew up in the 90’s, so I fully expect some comic books and a cheesy animated series. Perhaps Activision will lay low for a few months as they prepare to make Skylanders: Giants bigger (no pun intended) and better than the original.
What would you like to see Activision do with Skylanders now that its 32 figures have all been released?
