While I was playing around on the Xbox 360 dashboard this afternoon I found some Free Swap Force Gamer Pics and a Free 2014 Swap Force Theme. I noticed an advertisement in the “Games” section for Skylanders Swap Force. It turns out that this more than just a common Swap Force commercial. This was promoting some of the newer characters. There are three new character videos to watch called “Short Cuts”. There is one each for Fryno, Slobber Tooth and Fire Kraken. After watching any one of the videos, you will have access to download a set of Swap Force Gamer Pics and the 2014 Swap Force Theme. (What? You didn’t know the Xbox 360 still had themes? Scroll to the bottom of the post for instructions on how to set a theme.) Now you only need to watch one character video to unlock the free downloads, but these videos are very entertaining. We loved them. It begs the question that we’ve been asking for a couple years now. WHERE IS THE SKYLANDERS CARTOON? The animated video’s and trailers that they do have always been pretty awesome. Why there isn’t a cartoon featuring these characters is beyond me. Anyway, I highly suggest you checkout the character videos, and also the Video Gallery. Here you will find some new commercials and one additional “Short Cut” video. You could also probably find these on you tube, if you don’t have an Xbox 360.
Check it out and let us know what you think of the Free Swap Force Gamer Pics and Theme.
