That bottom looks official. Judging by the size this isn't a core. The front of the base looks like it's shaped for a circular symbol to go there. Reminds me of the Swap Zone symbol on Swappers...

What if the "button" looking thing on the front is actually a button you push to separate the figure from the base so you can snap/set the figure into a vehicle of some sort which would have its own RFID chip? There appears to be a horizontal seam extending from the button to where it looks like there could be square/rectangular shape at the bottom to allow it to still stand upright. It looks like it could be possible.

I'm not saying it definitely is that way, or that I'd even necessarily want that, it's just an idea/obersvation.

I feel like the designs are getting better for each game. He looks amazing.

And as Dahvoo said, it's too big for a core. It looks like it has some sort of ability, but if it doesn't have anything I can see that hint at the gimmick (judging by previous games): Not oversized (Giants), only one part (Swap Force), no big weapons (Trap Team). However, most games I've seen that have had something leaked before the announcement are usually revealed shortly after the leak. Maybe this might happen with Sky5.

EDIT: I'm calling him "Flyer Kraken" until his official name is revealed.

Looking at the bottom of the figure you can see a RFID tag through the plastic. Reminds me of a Disney Infinity power disc.

Maybe each figure can use any of the eight/ten elements? That would be cool if they each got a separate cosmetic appearance in-game and new move or ability depending on element.

I feel like he could be several different elements, not just Fire: Air (Wings), Tech (Wings look like they're made of technology), Undead (IDK, he just feels evil to me, which Undead is associated with), Dark (same as Undead, but to a lesser extent).

My theory-

The fire part of the base looks detachable, and the rfid seems to be inside the grey! I think that when you press that button, the grey part slides out, and you could put it on other elemental bases with that slot.

Theories are just theories tho.

He/ she does look pretty cool, if VV replicates this art style throughout the other figures, I will be happy indeed!

If you look very closely at the base, you can see an Undead symbol where the Swap Zone Ability was on the Swap Force Skylanders.

Agreed, that's pretty much what I came up with earlier. Different elements for the same figure depending on the base.

Although there'd have to be an RFID tag in the base and the figure. Very much like Disney Infinity power discs that add moves/boosts/costumes to figures.

Ok, that's an interesting skylander we have here. But in my opinion he doesn't have much personality. After I saw the (hopefully) not official name, I immedeantly saw Fire Shake (smilie + smilie ). To be honest, I hate the kart/racing theory, but I love the idea with the switching elements. I only fear this won't come true, because if you look at his wings you can see that it's obviously a pure Fire Skylander. If you could switch elements, the figure would just distract the whole image too much. If they gave him normal wings like Spyro's, then the theory would be pretty much right. But at least we got some news at all.

There is no official name currently. That name your thinking of is a fan name made by Qcumber. Flyer Kracken. For the personality, remember it's a prototype (Likely his final design though) and not painted yet.

Opinions opinions, I don't find them such.

But this guy doesn't seem exactly Drobot-like. He doesn't have the inner part of the wings, that's fire from the afterburners. And looking again, his skin is kinda the same fire effect... Maybe some machinery that gained sentience and created a snake out of fire?

(also with the new picture, is it me or it's actually half of an engine?)

Oh, and overanalyzing this some more: There are salamanders without hind limbs(Sirens and congo eels). Salamanders are associated with fire. Hm...

Look at the black thing on the base. Anyone else think it looks like an motor? His wings appear to be mechanical. Perhaps this could be part of group of Skylanders with overdrive capabilities?

It's a really weird concept, but yeah it could be associated with overdrive, there are plenty of engines for lots of things to use in the bases.

Also Lyric on Fire and Flyer Kraken don't do this enough justice in my opinion. How about Newthrottle(because some salamanders are called newts) or Clawbellows(since in French folklore legendary salamanders are called "Bellows Breath") while there's no final name?


Other than that I got nothing, I'm not good with making up names in 15 minutes.

Or they're going by engines related to the element. Though then I just contradicted myself since they mostly use combustion so fire. We'll have to see the official explanation.

Also,thinking on the story again, how and why in the world did they lose a box full of Clawbellows prototypes? Yes, VV changed offices, but how you mix that up with shipping actual figures if the game is probably at a point where they're A )in the final design and paintjob, so should at least be done or B ) Not even ready for this scale of production yet? I'm an absolute loss when it comes to figure distribution so if you guys know if it's normal or not feel free to correct me.

Well there is a good chance that this is a starter pack figure. They might be making the starter pack figures already.
