Final SWAP Force Character Art and Elements Revealed

A lot of news today all stemming from a SWAP Force poster that was sold on eBay today.

SWAP Force Characters Poster

As you can see in the image above we now know that the final Life character will be a Series 2 Camo.

We get our first glimpse of the four previously un-pictured Skylanders with their elements. These include:

Dune Bug – Magic
Scratch – Air
Wind-Up – Tech
Punk Shock – Water

We’re still awaiting actual figure images, but this should give you something to drool over for a while.

    At first I was confused because it only has 48 figures. Then I figured it out: they’re not showing the Lightcore variants.

      That was my first thought as well. It holds true for most of the list, but they actually show Flashwing instead of Knockout Terrafin.

      I guess it’s just what looked best for the poster.

      • torchie4269

        Sure enough! Dang it, they are really torturing the OCDs among us. And this of course ruins my prediction/hope for a Series 2 Tree Rex.

  • Josh Youngblut

    It took me a moment also to figure out that most of the lightcores were not on the poster. I was a worried for a bit not seeing Wham Shell.

    • torchie4269

      Agree, Smolderdash is probably my very favorite new Core figure. Also dig Star Strike and Roller Brawl. The new Prism Break looks pretty cool too.

      • Josh Youngblut

        I like the Eruptor variant that comes with the 3ds starter pack. I might have to pick up one of those just for that. They did a good job this time of really making the figures stand out for the reposes.

        • Mark Gardner

          I never got a series 2 Eruptor. I preordered the 3DS starter since it has two more SF characters I want and the alt Eruptor. I’m looking forward to seeing his wow-pow in giants. I’ve always only picked up characters that were universally compatible.

          • Josh Youngblut

            His Wow Pow in Giants is actually really good. It is a stream of Lava that can go thru/under shields. So if you can get him to hit and stay out of range so you don’t get hit you are golden. Depending on how much Day 1 costs me I might MIGHT get a 3DS starter pack. I really like the eruptor variant and want the other two swappers. They will release the other two swappers down the line, not sure about the eruptor though.

          • torchie4269

            The Lightcore figures work in Spyro’s Adventure, if that’s what you were talking about.

          • Mark Gardner

            I just hope that Volcanic Eruptor from S3 will show up in giants as a S2 so I can do wow-pow.

        • torchie4269

          Definitely. Pop Fizz, Sprocket, and Trigger Happy are all pretty extreme reposes. My son loves Eruptor. We had the Lightcore one very early on, and just got the Series 1 version. Definitely planning on getting the Series 3 version too. The Volcanic one looks really cool. I hope they eventually do a single with that one. Or I may just wait until the 3DS is so cheap it’s worth it just for the three figures, since we don’t have the handheld (yet). I’m eyeballing the new 2Ds now though.

          • Josh Youngblut

            Yeah, I may get it and try and Ebay the other parts of it I don’t need. I may wait until Black Friday though when they are usually on sale.

          • Josh Youngblut

            I picked up a 3DS today and will probably get the starter pack for the extra figs on launch day.

  • Mark Gardner

    Can anyone confirm Swap Force is fully payable on the WiiU GamePad? I just put $50 down on the Wind Waker Bundle and was considering moving my dark force preorder over to the WiiU.

    • Josh Youngblut

      I am not 100% sure but I am pretty positive that I heard someone say that they could do heroic challenges on the game pad.

  • Brancus

    doom stone will probably be the “spin-swap force-skylander”
    rubble rouser will be the “dig-swap force-skylander”
    and trap shadow will be the “stealth-swap force-skylander”

  • Logan

    COOL! I can’t wait until I get Dune Bug!
