Hey Everyone!

In the event I don't get to upload anything else before Thursday...


I really do enjoy Halloween..It is a great time of the year and a lot of fun.

This video is kind of a cross between a Channel Update and a Heads Up on some new Skylanders SWAP Force Related News.

^The video is taking a long time to process, just use the link until I can embed it etc.^

I will highlight everything with some quick cliff notes to the video.

There is a little more info in there, but it is 620 AM and I'm pretty tired...The internet connection is super slow, so the video may take awhile to process and go live...I will add pics from the Wish Finder tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a great Halloween!!  Remember, send in any Skylander related costumes or pumpkins to get them featured on the blog!  Don't forget to head to TRU this Sunday to pick up Legendary Zoo Lou!


  1. They were on the shelf at a TRU near me today! Tried to buy one and they couldn't put it through and realized the street date was 11/3, she took it away from me... grrrrr

    1. That sucks...I figured stores would already have them and many would prob put them out early...Sometimes they over ride street dates on things like this since the main hold up is just games etc...

      Hope they atleast offered to hold one for you...I never know if the stores will have tons of stock, or do that "we got 6 of them and sold out" bit, lol.

      Good luck Sunday!

  2. Lol! Once again we received the same thing from Toys R Us but I was rushed and only took a brief look. thanks for catching the details!! (I was hoping for at least another paycheck or two before more Skylanders hit-lol. Although that may be partially why these releases are staggered.)
    On a secondary note, Happy Halloween! I made a Halloween Skylander poster/pic-please feel free to grab it at the Orionsislands.blogspot site-and any others. I don't mind people taking them and altering them in any way (don't worry about obliterating the website watermark-I just want people to enjoy them) On a side note, I'm just getting into the habit of saving versions with the watermark and without so people can use them...This whole blog thing takes some technical refinements and tinkering as you go to smooth

    1. Nice...I'm thinking newspaper versions will just be the catalog...

      It was pretty funny to see Wash Lou featured though, haha.

      The good news with these two is that they will be affordable...However, W3 could very easily hit before Black Friday, and that would get expensive...Note that the W2 Triple Packs still haven't surfaced, lol...It'll be the same way with subsequent waves.

      Likewise...Halloween is awesome! I will check the posters out from work tomororw...I'm just now catching up on the blog comments...I had planned to play Ch 2 tonight and it is now 320 AM so I may bail on that :( I will likely go thru another mission on the 3DS version, haha...That one has been pretty fun thus far!

      Good luck Sunday!

      I just stick names/watermarks on everything since a lot of times people will just take what you post and copy/paste to their own site without crediting the original source of the content etc...I can't stop people from doing that, but I can make really long articles and posts most folks will recognize as my own and at least make the person take the time to copy the pics themselves, or remain lazy enough to at least promote the blog they stole from, lol...

      If you ever do anything really cool, put your name on it! I link back to sites/blogs etc, but most will take it and pass it off as their own...

  3. hmmm...Thanks for the advice...I am formulating a strategy here...Watermark releases only for the unique stuff...and both marked and unmarked for the rest. I'm just hitting the ground with this and now I plan to pick up speed.

    The Dino Rang scenario was a definite surprise. I really like his character and even picked up a second figure to pursue the second path. But I've been so busy, he's still in the box! If this is a variation of some sort that would really make my day!
