Skylanders Swap Force: New Characters

Hello Portal Masters,

Today I have a lot of news aabout Sswap Force.

There have been several new pictures of Skylanders and with E3 arroud the corner, we can look forward to a ot of exciting things to come.

This shows us the starter pack for the consoles ps3, wii and xbox360.
So we will have  Blast Zone, Wash Buckler and Stealth Elf in the pack.
Interesting: The card says Ninja Stealth Elf, so maybe the S3 Characters get a new name part?

Up next the handheld 3DS Version of the Intro Pack:
We see a new Undead Swap Force Snake, a new Swap Force Eagel and S3 Volcanic Eruptor.
Since the coloring is quite of for Eruptor and we always got a variant in the hand console versions, I think Eruptor S3 will actually look a little different.

And this is not all news for today.
We have another new Swap Force:


He seems to like Honey and Bees a lot and is a new Life Skylanders based on his look.
Is he Swap Fore or Regular? We don' know yet, but time (hopefully E3) will tell.

Also in this pic: S3 Trigger Happy. And apart from him there are more serues 3 "confirmations" or guesses:


The book is a new art for Hot Dog. Since the burning bone in his mouth is a new thing and light core never got a new power so far I assume it is his S3 art with Wow Pow..

The lower picture shows the intro pack (again. BTW: LC Hex as a Pre Order Bonus) and the logo shows S3 Eruptor (different coloring) and S3 Terrafin.

Now that is some news!
What do you think? Excited? Or havc you all changed to infinity?

Let me know!

Skylanders Swap Force: "Exclusive" information?

Hello Portal Masters,

in a german video
http://www.pcgameshardware.de/Skylanders-Spyros-Adventure-PC-236980/Videos/Skylanders-Swap-Force-Preview-zum-neuen-Skylanders-Spiel-1047468/

there have been some information from a German Event, that were not in any other video.

According to the video, while using the left movement cross thing, you can change the facial expression of your skylanders. Also, they mention some of the movement



climp, stealth, rocket, speed, teleport, 

And on oneof swords I found digging as a movement. 

So we know 6 of 8 movements already.

And they said that two players can fly side by side in the swap zone. I wonder if you need both flying characters for that but probably not :)


Will keep you updated!

Skylanders Giants: Wave 2

Dear Portal Masters,

Today I will review wave 2 of the giants, since I got asked about that a lot.

So let me first say who was in the wave:

Giant: Hot Head

New Skylanders: Sprocket, Flashwing

Series 2: Bash, Drill Sergeant, Flame Slinger, Hex, Stump Smash, Sonic Boom, Gill Grunt, Double Trouble

Light Core: Jet-Vac

This time I did not get all the figures, just the new ones in the tripple packs
(Sprocket, Sonic Boom, Stump Smash) and (Flashwing, Gill Grunt, Double Trouble)
as well as Hex and Hot Head

I will share my opinion about the new ones:

Sprocket:
She is a lot of fun and very different from all the other Skylanders. I think she is a little trickier than some others, so maybe smaller kids will have troube getting the best of her.
But I think she is great.

Flashwing:
Suprised me as being pretty powerful. She is quick and can do a lot of things. I think her gameplay is not the most fun, since it is not as versatile as I like my Skylanders, but I still like her and she is better than I expected.

Hot Head:
A real power house. One of my favourite Giants so far playwise (I still don't like the figure that much, but ok). I do think that his motorcycle ability is absolutely useless, but ok. The other abilities are really strong.

I woud definetely recommend Hot Head! He is strong and a cool Fire Skylander. Probably my favourite of the Giants playwise (from series one and two). Sprocket and Flashwing are both very nice. I would consider Flashwing for younger players and Sprocket for players who want a more strategicly chalenging character.

Hope this helps some (although you all might already have all the characters ;))

Talk to you soon!
