Flameslinger is an Elven archer with incredible aim. In fact, he is so good that he wears a blindfold just to prove it. When he was young, he rescued a fire spirit from a watery doom and was gifted an enchanted bow and magical fire boots that he now masterfully uses to defeat evil throughout Skylands. With the scorched earth he leaves behind, you can always tell where he has been.
Flameslinger - Gold was one of three gold painted Skylanders to be released for Spyro's Adventure. Much like the silver figures the gold figures were randomly found on store shelves along side the regular figures. The gold figures are supposedly even more rare than the silver figures that were released. As with all colored variant special characters he will not appear as a gold Flameslinger in the game. He is just a gold painted Flameslinger.
The other two gold figures available for Spyro's Adventure are Chop Chop - Gold and Drill Sergeant - Gold.
