Anyway, I was a bit disappointed and while leaving I turned back just to check the stock on Skylanders. While doing so, I saw the SWAP Force display box. I hadn't seen it before, so I figured I would make the trip worthwhile by lining it up with the Dark Edition Starter Pack inset poster...
While trying to stand it up I noticed something unusual...the "display" box had a backside! So many times those big, oversized paper boxes just have a colorful front to get your attention and then nothing on the backside...or in some cases, the exact same thing as the front so as to fool proof the display. This was inherently different....it had a more "polished" feel to the back with the game's story, box art, highlights for the S2, S3, LightCore, and SWAP Force Skylanders, AND a lineup for 4 of the Elements!!
Yep, you read right...4 of the Elements were listed out with characters from each...
They covered: Life, Air, Fire, and Undead.
They were listed out as follows: SWAP 1, SWAP 2, LightCore, Repose, Repose, SF New, SF New
Wow...talk about an unexpected find! My disappointing trip just turned into quite the find!
This is one of many posts/conveying of information where the blog is far superior to a video. The pictures in standard, widescreen, and any HD setting look like garbage. With my narration you can tell what is going on, but here on the blog they are so much easier to view and take in...
As usual, I realize many people only watch videos and rarely head to blogs or forums, so I made a video...but it is being posted with the caveat that you should really just come here and enjoy the pictures.
I've known of most of these, but it is cool to see the final figure poses...Especially of interest are Thorn Horn Camo and Scratch. This means that our lingering Life returnee is in fact, Camo. Quite fitting that he and Warnado both returned. Scratch also looks quite interesting.
So without further ado, why don't I quit rattling off info and let you see it for yourself? If you want to get a better look, head to your local GameStop and look for the Skylander SWAP Force display...The backside was very sneaky, but much appreciated! I wonder how many people have seen this display and NOT realized there was a backside? Anyway, here you go:
