Skylanders news is ramping up again this week. We have a lot to cover so let's dive right into it.
New Releases – Wave 4
This week Toys R Us has released a new Wave of Skylanders. This is Wave 4. You can find the case breakdown below:
Wave 4 Driver Assortment
Wave 4 Vehicle Assortment
Once again TRU got an Early Release of this Wave. We probably won't see these figures in other stores for another 2-4 weeks.
New Chase Variants
I have heard from many of you who were able to get out early this week and find these in the store. Personally, I'm still looking, but hope is fading fast. I hope those of you that have found these rare variants are enjoying them.
In addition to TRU providing us with a new Wave of figures, they have also provided us with information regarding a surprising number of upcoming releases.
For the past few years we have always gotten a handful of Easter or Spring Edition Skylanders. This year is no different.
This year's Easter offerings include:
Both of these figures currently have a Toys R Us Street Date of March 1st.
Power Blue Skylanders
I haven't really made mention of these figures even though we've known about them for some time. For the most part, they've been a big mystery and there hasn't been a lot to share except for their name.
Now I still don't have a lot of information to share, but the mystery should be solved soon as TRU also has the release date for a Power Blue Driver Assortment and a Power Blue Vehicle Assortment set at March 1st.
These assortments are believed to include:
Power Blue SuperChargers
- Power Blue Double Dare Trigger Happy
- Power Blue Splat
Power Blue Vehicles
- Power Blue Gold Rusher
- Power Blue Splatter Splasher
If that wasn't enough, March 1st is currently the release date for the long-awaited Skylanders Battlecast.
While no official word from Activision has been given, the screenshots from TRU once again tell us it's coming soon.
All of the items mentioned above will eventually be available from all major retailers, but it looks like TRU will be getting most of them early. As the release date is only a month away I expect that I should be getting some official news from Activision in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
