"Hail to the Whale!"

Thumpback Retailers

Thumpback was once a crew member of The Phantom Tide, the most fearsome pirate ship in all of Skylands. But the actual pirating part about being a pirate didn't interest Thumpback so much as the benefits that came with traveling on a large ship. After all, his real passion was fishing. But when his chance came to finally ensnare the most elusive creature in the sky - the Leviathan Cloud Crab - he was pulled over board and carried off into the horizon. This was actually quite fortunate, because sometime later The Phantom Tide and its entire crew were banished to the Chest of Exile. Thumpback’s pirating days were over, but his legend as one of the first Skylanders had only just begun.

Thumpback is a new Water Giant Skylander debuting in Giants. He has one sidekick: Thumpling.

Thumpback was released in Wave 3 of Skylanders for Giants and he can still be found in stores.
