More Rare Variants For Skylanders Imaginators (Including Employee Exclusive)

Categories: News

Just when you think they're done, a few more appear.

Today we have two more variants to talk about, but I'm going to warn you right now: You'll probably never get your hands on either of these variants.

Painyatta Chase Variant

Down in Australia, Penny Brown was the first to spot this variant of Painyatta.

Rock Candy Painyatta - Chase Variant

I was a little surprised to see it pop up in the Combo Pack, but I guess anything's possible.

SIDE NOTE: What would you call this variant?

2016 Employee Edition

Each year Activision likes to reward their employees for working so hard on the game with a special figure.

These Employee Edition figures are handed out directly to the employees and this is the only way they are distributed. This is not something you will ever see in stores.

This year's Employee Edition appears to be Master Dec-Ember

Master Dec-Ember

A very small number of these figures have been spotted so far (on eBay) and most of them have come out of the UK.

I will continue to track this figure, but like I said in the beginning, I wouldn't ever expect to get your hands on this one.

    Pain-Yatta variant name possibility-Rock or Hard Candy Pain-Yatta

    • JimyMahr

      I was just thinking turquoise due to the solid gem-like look of this series variants, but I change my vote to Rock Candy Pain-Yatta. Genius!

      • Imani Richards

        What about “Beat Black and Blue” Pain-Yatta?

    • Froyop 12

      I like that

    • Stayforeverskylanders

      I was not aware of the color being a theme but the color could be added before (insert color) Rock Candy Pain-Yatta to stay with tradition. It is up to you Matt, you are the one who would have to do all that extra typing.

    To stick with the names we’ve given the other chase variants, I would call it “Cyan Pain-Yatta.”

  • VideoGamer1212

    Is Dec-Ember a chase variant?

    • Bradley Stone

      No other holiday special has been in-game variant, so it is likely chase.

      • VideoGamer1212

        Snow-Brite Stormblade was the Employee Edition last year, and it was a Christmas chase variant.

  • Bradley Stone

    Rock Candy Pain-Yatta is brilliant. I was going to recommend Quartz Pain-Yatta at first, but no more.

  • Helborne

    My suggestion would be “Gummi Pain-Yatta.” Mmm… Gummi…

    • Imani Richards

      I like!
