Gnarly Barkley

Gnarly Barkley
"Be Afraid of the Bark!"

Barkley was one of the four special "sidekick" characters released by Activision through their second promotion with Frito-Lay. He is the miniature of Tree Rex. Fans who collected UPC symbols from specially marked bags of Frito-Lay 20-count variety packs, could send away for these side kicks for just a few dollars shipping. The character is NOT a controllable Skylander in game, but will show up in the "Giants" and "Swap Force" games to fight next to one of the main characters when placed on the portal. He is treated more like a magic item where he supports any other character that the player is using. Unlike magic items, a sidekick does not expire after a time limit.

Gnarly Barkley is a special edition mini created for Skylanders Trap Team. Minis were first playable in Trap Team, and now the special edition Gnarly Tree Rex has his own mini in Gnarly Barkely.

Gnarly Barkley was released on 6/3/2015 at Toys R Us and later at other retailers and is only available in a special single pack.
