As I was browsing Best Buy’s website this morning, I noticed that they are having a 2 day sale today and tomorrow. (1/20 – 1/21). Apparently there are some Skylander games on deep discount in this sale. You can pick up Skylanders SuperChargers or Skylanders Trap Team for just $5. If you are a Gamer’s Club member, then the price falls to $4. This is the complete starter pack with portal, Skylanders and the game. If you are a Skylander’s fan that haven’t played one of these games then you can’t pass this up. It also looks like they are trying to get rid of Battlecast. We found the game quite fun, and while you don’t necessarily need to use physical cards to play, picking up a $10 Starter Pack for $1 is a great deal. The normally priced $5 booster packs are also just $1. Click the link here to check out the sale!Share this article!
Well, it looks like ToysRUs.com is having a one day memorial day cyber sale on Skylanders. According to their website, if you buy any Skylander at a price you can get two more Skylanders of that price free. This means if you buy an $8.99 Skylander you can get two free one’s but they must both be $8.99 as well. This can make ordering old Skylanders a little tricky since many of them are on sale and are at different prices. But if you can find three that you want at the same price then you should only have to pay for one of them. Pay attention to your cart if you try to take advantage of this deal. In the past from toysRUs I have had to place multiple orders to get a deal like this multiple times. Also, since this is a cyber sale, this means that it is only valid online, so don’t expect to find this deal in the store. It’s still a great deal though if you do need to catch up on your Skylander collecting!Share this article!

Kaos is a Dark Portal Master who is the ultimate evil in all of Skylands! At least he claims he is. Ever since he was an infant, he has demonstrated to have an insatiable hunger for absolute power. As an infant he had once seized control of his nursery with his “Evil Baby Army of Evil Drool”! The uprising was eventually crushed at nap-time. Kaos went to one of the best evil schools for magical villainy. This is where he met Glumshanks. He persuaded Glumshanks to be his evil servant with the promise of career growth. However, they were both expelled when Kaos appeared as a giant floating head at a school assembly and ate the gymnasium. Today, the unpromoted and under appreciated Glumshanks remains at Kaos’s side as he continues to come up with plan after plan to take over Skylands and become the “Ultimate Evil Overlord”! Some think he’s just trying to impress his immensely powerful and overbearing mother who is also a Dark Portal Master. Either way, most agree that Kaos should never be underestimated.
Fling Kong – Skylander Review
Fling Kong is a new Air core Skylander making his debut in Skylanders Trap Team. Fling Kong used to be the royal protector of the legendary monkey idol: Kubla-Wa. He had trained in a form of fighting which used the power of air called Monk-Ru. As a seriously dedicated student, he was always first to arrive for training and the last to leave. One day, a bunch of foul-smelling, well-armed Gorilla-Goos showed up led by the famous General Snot. Snot had learned that the idol was made of solid gold and was determined to steal it. They quickly took control of the temple which held the idol and were about to take it when Fling Kong showed up. Fling Kong attacked with the power of a Monk-Ru master! He used his flying rug and powerful vortex discs to defeat the Gorilla-Goos and save the idol. Soon after, Master Eon invited Fling Kong to become a Skylander where he can knock the wind out of evil throughout the Skylands.
The Golden Queen is an Earth trappable villain and is the leader of the Doom Raiders in Skylanders Trap Team. She is a wicked queen made entirely of gold and is rich beyond her wildest imagination. But that isn’t enough for the Golden Queen. If there is more to be had, then have it she wants. So she stole and stole and stole, but it was never enough, there was always more to be had. Through evil sorcery she even learned how to turn people and objects into solid gold. However, that was still not enough. The idea that there was treasure in Skylands that was not hers infuriated her. She began a quest to take every last cent of it, but she couldn’t do it alone. That is when she formed the Doom Raiders – the most notorious group of villains ever assembled. She promised riches, world domination, and even all-you-can-eat shrimp just to recruit special criminals to her cause. Together they terrorized Skylands until Master Eon and the Trap Masters put a stop to them and locked them up in Cloudcracker Prison!
Today I play through the last two chapters of Skylanders Trap Team. I am only using Kaos and I am playing on the Nightmare difficulty. These last levels include the boss battles between the Golden Queen and Kaos himself. I haven’t had much of a problem with the boss battles using Kaos until now. These battles were considerably harder on Nightmare difficulty than they were on Normal, and trying to use Kaos was a bit more of a problem this time. Check it out!

Bat Spin – Skylander Review
Bat Spin is a new Undead core Skylander making her debut in Skylanders Trap Team. She comes from the underworld, where as a child she was separated from her people. She searched for them for months but was unable to find them. She did find a colony of magical bats who welcomed her and raiser her as one of their own. She spent many years living with the bats, then one day their colony was invaded by an army of Undead Trolls. Bat Spin used the powerful abilities that she had learned from the bats growing up and essentially turned into one of them. She defeated the army of trolls and saved her colony. This caught the attention of Master Eon who saw at once that she would make a great Skylander.
Today I play through chapters 14, 15 and 16 of Skylanders Trap Team. I am only using Kaos and I am playing on the Nightmare difficulty. This is the quiet before the storm as there really aren’t any major villains outside of Grave Clobber to defeat in this session.

Wolfgang is an Undead trappable villain that you can capture after defeating him at the end of the thirteenth level – The Future of Skylands in Skylanders Trap Team. Wolfgang wasn’t always a werewolf. He used to be a brilliant musician who was set to marry a beautiful princess. Before the wedding he planned to release his ultimate symphony. He was convinced that all of Skylands would love it and crown him as the best composer of all time. Unfortunately no one liked it. It actually physically hurt people to listen to it. Wolfgang had unintentionally discovered the musical note for pain. All of the people in Skylands shunned Wolfgang, and the princess refused to marry him. This drove Wolfgang completely mad, transforming him into the werewolf he is today. With his life in ruins, he turned to a life of crime, terrorizing the royal subjects and using his music as a weapon. The Golden Queen realized that Wolfgang could make a powerful ally as long as she could control his rage and keep him in line. That is when Wolfgang joined the Doom Raiders.
