"Hail to the Whale!"

Thumpling was one of the four special "sidekick" characters released by Activision through their second promotion with Frito-Lay. He is the miniature of Thumpback. 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.

The orange base Thumpling can now only be obtained used or through a reseller, however a red base Thumpling will be re-released for Skylanders Trap Team.

Thumpling and 15 other minis will become playable in Trap Team. Thumpling will be packaged with Gill Runt but no release date has been given.
