Last year Mega Bloks released the Skylanders Ultimate Battle Arcade – kids could crash and bash tons and tons of different Skylanders Giants into each other in exciting mini-games. Now, with the start of a new year, we’re literally “launching” an awesome new way for Skylanders fans to battle with the coolest new SWAP Force characters!
As a parent of two, I know the pre-holidays rush very well. Usually the big gift is already decided, but there are so many more to get! The last week’s rush for stocking stuffers and smaller gifts can be a nightmare without the right guidance. So to help others like me, I’ve made a quick list of some of my favourite toys that will fit the bill for those last few items to round out the holiday season.
As a Skylanders fan who has played through all the games and then watched my son do the same, I can confidently say that Kaos, the big baddie from the series, is an extremely memorable villain in a world already chock-full of brilliant characters. And now he’s back in Mega Bloks form in this towering castle set!
If there were one single vehicle that represented the Skylanders games, it would be the Dread Yacht. Integral to the story in both Skylanders Giants and Skylanders SWAP Force, it finally makes an appearance as an epic 546-piece Mega Bloks set!
In all my days managing the Mega Bloks social media channels, I’ve picked up on what construction sets people respond the strongest to, and which sets get the highest number of ‘where can I find this?!’ questions. Eleven months of listening to fans has made me officially qualified to spend my last month guiding YOU in the right gift-giving direction.
Once boys and girls reach about the age of four or five, they are usually ready to tackle a more detailed build. This list features some of the year’s very best sets for a pair of young hands to follow instructions and build something great out of a pile of blocks.
Since the release of the Skylanders SWAP Force™ game in October, it’s great to see the characters come to life as Mega Bloks®. One of the amazing sets that feature a new SWAP Force character is the Boss Tank Showdown. It includes the water character Wash Buckler and an evil Glumshanks in a wicked boss tank.
Along with the release of the brand new Skylanders SWAP Force™ game, there’s a whole line of brand new Mega Bloks® toys! And if you’re lucky enough to have already played the game you’ll recognize this one instantly: it’s Sharpfin’s Jetboat!
We just can’t give enough free toys away! We somehow managed to get through Comic Con and still had toys left over! But the one toy that we did run out of was our exclusive Skylanders Swap Force™ figures – an extremely popular giveaway today on Family Day at NYCC.
Can you feel the ground under your feet rumbling? There’s an epic battle about to go down when Thumpback the Skylanders Giant faces off against a lumbering Chompy Bot 9000.
Excitement is building here at Mega Bloks HQ as the countdown begins to the release of the new Skylanders Swap Force game, coming out this Fall! And nobody does excitement quite like the overflowing bundle of unrestrained energy that is Pop Fizz.
