Go out and grab three new Skylanders now.

Three new Skylander characters were made available in stores today, as part of the Dragon's Peak Adventure Pack.

First to join the Skylanders ranks is Lightning Rod. Joining the air elemental Skylanders, Lightning Rod makes use of lightning bolts to take out enemies. Accompanying the fire element Skylanders is Sunburn. This part phoenix, part dragon creature breathes fire and has the ability to teleport. Lastly is Zook, who joins the life characters. Zook has the ability to launch thorns and protect himself using foliage.

The Dragon's Peak Adventure Pack adds another level to Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, as well as other various upgrades.

If you want to know about other Skylander characters, be sure to check out our Skylanders  Character Guide.

All I need is Camo and Sunburn, then I bought the ones I wanted. Though I had to buy a few that I didn't want....

Don't hate on my Skylanders toys.

Well, at least I can soothe the wounds of not being able to find Empire of Ice with hopefully finding these news ones. Toys R Us trips will be regular lunchtime excursions for me again...

I wish they ramp up production a bit.  I like to be able to find these new ones and the two expansions I'm now missing.  Though currently if you get into the game now you couldn't find any figures to go with it...

To be fair, it's my understanding that they have.  A lot.

And I still can't find the Ice Expansion and all of the Franklin TN area is barren of Skylanders.


Like a purging of the earth.

Your link is not working it seems Toys R Us took it down.

Here is a link to the Bing Cached page Ok for some reason the URL tag isn't working right for me
http://cc.bingj.com/cache.aspx?q=Toys+R+Us+Blue+Bash&d=138249702741&mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&w=dc4c0f29,8909bd9e

The link works when you copy it into your address bar but not if you click it.  You can also search for "Toys R Us Blue Bash" and click the Cache.


This must be from the Facebook poll where blue won.

Also "Now Available" is a misnomer... No one in my area has gotten a shipment since the last week of February.

Yeah, they had a limit one (wanted to get a second for a co-worker), but it apparently still went pretty quick.  Glad I got mine in.  Managed to score online orders for both Legendary Trigger Happy and Blue Bash.  Yay. :D

CericMarch 06, 2012

I figure it would just say no more in stock.
I still want to see the pictures.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorMarch 06, 2012

Well, it was a pre-order.  It'd be weird if they had no more pre-orders in stock.

What are you wanting to see a photo of?

I little closer in on Bash.  I'm trying to determine if he as silver speckles in him.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorMarch 06, 2012

I don't think so...

Of course, that's the pre-production photo used on the Facebook voting...
