Spotlight – Skylander Review

Spotlight – Skylander Review

Spotlight - Skylander ReviewSpotlight is a new core Light Skylander making her debut in Trap Team. She isn’t just any new Skylander, she is the first core Skylander of the Light element, which debuted in Trap Team. However, she had been in Skylands before. Master Eon found her in the Prismatic Palace when he was looking for the Crystal Orb of Light. When he found the orb, he reached out to touch it, which caused bright light to shine out of the orb. The light was so bright Master Eon had to shield his eyes. When he was able to lower his hand, he saw Spotlight standing before him in a respectful bow. He had not seen a Light Element creature before since it was not one of the eight common elements of Skylands. He sensed that the Ancients set her to him for a reason so he took Spotlight to the Core of Light and trained her to defend it as a member of the Skylanders. But when Kaos destroyed the Core of Light, Spotlight mysteriously vanished. Only now has she finally re-appeared.

Trap Team – Sunscraper Spire (Light Element Expansion Pack)

Trap Team - Sunscraper Spire (Light Element Expansion Pack)Today the boys and I play the new Sunscraper Spire level from the new Light Element Expansion Pack. I play with the new Knight Light, which I thought was the first time I had played with the character, but actually I did play with him for a brief second on the Midnight Museum level. Conner starts with Knight Mare from the Dark Element Expansion Pack so we start with the forces of Light and Dark working together. Overall we found this level and boss battle to be much more interesting than the Midnight Museum. Give it a watch and let us know what you think.

Expansion Packs and Some Wave 3 Out Today

Expansion Packs and Some Wave 3 Out TodayDecember 21st marks the release of the Light Element Expansion Pack and the Dark Element Expansion Pack. It also seems to mark the beginning of the Wave 3 release characters. Toys R Us once again will have a temporary jump on other retailers. This morning at my local Toys R Us, I saw both of the new expansion packs, two new mini packs: Gill Runt with Thumpling and Small Fry with Weeruptor, and two new core Skylanders in Cobra Cadabra and Trail Blazer. I did not see the two new core Skylanders of the light and dark elements that were rumored to be out with the expansion packs. However, my local Toys R Us employee said they are expecting more characters on Tuesday or Wednesday and then again after Christmas. There are rumors of other characters that will be part of a Wave 3 release. Be sure to check out all of the possible Wave 3 figures that we have pieced together here. By early January we should see all of Wave 3 characters in stores.
