Unboxing Scorpion Striker Battle Pack with Zap and Hot Dog
What? Scorpion Striker Battle Pack
Where Did You Get It? GameStop
What Did It Cost? $24.99 plus tax
What Is Included? Series 2 Zap, Hot Dog, Scorpion Striker Catapult, Sticker Sheet, and Web Codes
What Lights Up? The Ball end of the catapult...it has an amber glow that radiates from it
What Was Stock Like? Very limited! If you did not pre-order, I would not bank on getting this right away. Before you panic, I imagine the next shipment will come pretty soon and if you really want it, you shouldn't have much trouble landing it. That said, it might pay off to try and order it from GameStop.com or check with your local store to hold one etc.
Quick Character Info
Zap, Series 2, Water Element
Slogan: "Ride the Lightning!"
Zap's Introduction and Heroic Challenge
Hot Dog, Fire Element, New Skylander
Slogan: "See Spot Burn!"
Hot Dog's Introduction and Heroic Challenge
Scorpion Striker Catapult, Magic Item
The catapult's ball-like projectile lights up from within and radiates an amber glow...much like the Golden Dragonfire Cannon.
The catapult will work as a magic item in the game and will also unlock new battle arenas. After recording the Intro and Heroic Challenge of Zap, I checked out the Scorpion Striker. It unlocks:
-Cliff Dive Crags Battle Arena
-Metal Hive Battle Arena
If I get a chance when someone is over I'll try to record some PvP at the new arenas. As is, it is hard for 1 person to do much worth watching there...I still say Giants should have had Single Player options in Battle Mode.
Wow! This feels like an accomplishment since with Hot Dog, we finally have all of the new Skylanders available in their standard pose. I am excited to see him in action as his story was pretty good. I was very excited for Zap, but the voice on Skylanders.com is far from what I would have expected him to sound like...I am hoping that won't sway me in the game. Zap is someone I have really looked forward to as I will finally be able to try the other path as he was one of a small handful of Skylanders that had what looked like 2 great paths.
If you did not pre-order I would monitor GameStop.com and check with your local store on the next delivery. For all we know it could come Monday of next week. That said, based on what I saw tonight I would not bank on picking the Scorpion Striker Battle Pack up this weekend if you did not pre-order.
That said, this will only be a timed exclusive to GameStop so worse come to worse other outlets (Toys'R'Us, Walmart, and Target, etc) should have this Battle Pack in a few weeks.
Good luck fellow Portal Masters!
