This year, they have really upped the ante. They had some of the most innovative storage/display products I have seen. It is almost as if someone imagined this concept and then instead of the bean counters saying, "No!" it actually went into production.
For those of you who aren't just content with the cases (upgrades there as well!), they now have flush mount islands that turn your wall into Skylands. If you were to use some of the wall stickers, or paint a custom mural it would be over the top. The islands connect with bridges and comfortably hold Giants and Swap Force characters as well as your regular SSA cast. They are very cool.
If you are more interested in say putting your display on a desk or table of some sorts you can have the full on 3D treatment! The island display is ridiculously awesome as is Flynn's Ship. These are products and displays many of us have dreamed of, but never really thought we would see outside of attempting to have one fabricated at our own expense.
Power A has these new storage and display innovations along with some other cool new products. They have recently gotten into the mobile side of things and have smart phone, iPod, and tablet covers and sleeves ready to go...I saw a few "insiders" sporting the Hot Dog cover at the show...Amazing what a keen eye will show you!
On top of the new product line and innovations the cases and controllers are just as good as ever.
What caught me off guard was their box display. This is akin to what you might see in your local Game Stop, Toys'R'Us, Target or Walmart. It featured artwork for Ninja Stealth Elf, Blast Zone, and what should be S3 Chop Chop and S2 Hot Dog. Inside they had product boxes to highlight the potential display layout. However, what was a total surprise was getting to see the box art for some of the new Swap Force characters! It was a very big surprise and was just a taste of what was to come...
It was difficult to get great pictures or video due to the volume of people, lighting, and noise, but I think you will get the gist of things...Power A and Skylanders make a great team with killer products for us, the end users!
I have a separate video to highlight their back section which features even more great products for all platforms and from brands like Nintendo, Mario, Pokemon, Call of Duty, and more!
