Vote for a New Skylander

Frito Lay new Skylander VoteWell it’s time for more Frito-Lay contest news. Earlier we told you about the contest for submitting new Skylander names for three possible new Skylanders figures. We now know these figures will be part of the Trap Team release, though, these do not appear to be Trap Masters. It looks like one will just be a new core Skylander for the game. Well the names have been chosen and now it’s time to vote for your favorite character. Personally, I’m a little disappointed in the names. I saw better names floating around various message boards. I’m not sure if they were just never submitted or what. I know that we never got around to submitting names, so maybe people just didn’t have enough faith in themselves. Regardless, ONE of these names will be your next new Skylander. So now, do you vote for your favorite character? Or your favorite name? It’s tough, but let your voice be heard. Head on over to Frito-Lay and submit your vote.

Frito-Lay Choose Your Hero Contest Started

Choose Your Hero ContestFrito-Lay has announced the latest Skylanders promotion called Choose Your Hero. This contest will give one lucky winner the gift of naming one of the Skylanders in the next Skylanders game as well as a $100,000 scholarship. There are three potential characters that could be named. (See pic) Entrants will have to submit a name and a 200 word or less reason for coming up with the name for that character. One winner for each character will be selected. Then fans will get to decide which character and name get put into the next Skylanders game.

Name The Next Skylander Frito-Lay Promotion

Name the Next Skylander 2014Frito-Lay and Skylanders are teaming up once again. This time its not about getting a special character for your collection. Now they are going to let the winner “Name the Next Skylander.” The contest starts 2/24/14 and they have a countdown timer on their website here. It looks like once again contest entries will come in specially marked bags of snack packs. Both the Classic Mix and Flavor Mix. It also looks like each bag will come with a $5 coupon towards a Starter Pack. Not as good as the previous $10 off coupons. Personally, I’m a little disappointed.  I rather like knowing that I should get a character when I buy the bags and send in a coupon vs just entering a contest that I am most likely not going to win. I would also bet that they are not going to let you name the character whatever you want. They probably have a list of three to five names already possible for the Skylander and they will probably just let the winner make the final decision. If that is the case, there could conceivably be multiple winners. No chance of me naming a character “SkylanderNutts.com” or “Marcus Pheonix” (Although..should there be another fire breathing bird….)
