I will really enjoy playing as EE Slam Bam when he, EE Dino-Rang, and the others arrive. Too bad there won't be another Air and Fire Elite. I would have chosen Lightning Rod and Flameslinger as new Elites.

Warnado and Sunburn. They deserve to be Elite.

I don't think they will add 4 legged anything this time around. I do think we still are getting a Fire and Air Elite. I'm betting Ignitor and Lightning Rod.

I agree with Buuzer. While Warnado has had a Lightcore I would love for him to be an Elite. Please... Hes kinda weak

Meh...people keep saying to bring back Sunburn, but he was highly unpopular and has poor fighting style. Not to mention that I don't like his voice much. Other than to add him to my rosters in the games, I don't think I've played with Sunburn since Swap Force when I was leveling him up to 20. They really need to raise the level cap up from 20! You can get the Dragon's Peak pack for $5-10 at Toys R Us, so the only people forking out $20 for him in elite form will be super fans and collectors. Same goes for Warnado...highly ineffective attacks have rendered him practically useless against more technical enemies in Nightmare mode. Both would be shelf warmers if they became Eon's Elite figures. Prism Break is the same...it's an absolute chore to attack with him in these newer games (still have bad flashbacks of trying to win the Angry Angry Plants battle arena in nightmare mode with him in Swap Force). Some characters are best left in the past. I'd rather see some remakes or elite treatment with newer game figures like Scratch (which would fly off the shelves), Scorp, Fling Kong, Smolderdash, Trailblazer, Dune Bug, and others from the past 2 games.

Sunburn being good or not doesn't matter. He's pretty much the only character to not have a new figure since 2011. Even a Wow Pow or Series 2 could make him interesting again, doesn't matter if he's enjoyable to play now or not, he deserves a teeny tiny bit of attention. Poor guy might not be your favorite but he's someone's favorite out there; and after they're done with him they can move on to who could actually get more exposure.

While I do understand your point of view, you need to understand that unpopular characters will sit on shelves and collect dust...especially at a price point of $20. I know you're from Brazil, but walk into a Toys R Us store in the US and see a whole wall full of Legendary Zou Lou figures and you'll see the epitome of an unwanted figure. If I was in a boardroom at Activision, I'd be more likely to get a promotion after seeing the outcome of sales for suggesting an Eon's Elite of Scratch over that of somebody who suggested that Sunburn get the elite treatment. That being said, I think all new figures should have a new attack or Wow Pow rather than just the elite/steroid treatment. The only reason I can think of for Activision trying to pawn off another round of Eon's Elite figures to another retailer after the abysmal sales of round one at GameStop is that they are cheaply made in mass production (as in still highly profitable per unit at jacked up MSRP) and very minimal programming is required in game by developers to give characters elite treatment/boosted stats over their original counterparts.

The new Elites will not be glittery all over their bodies like the first ones. Also, if I'm not mistaken, their accessories and weaponry will be.

Slam Bam - ski goggles and sleigh
Boomer - round bombs
Ghost Roaster - ghost tail chain
Zook - pineapple coming out of his bazooka
Dino-Rang - new boomerangs (just a guess)
Voodood - new axe (yet another guess)

Actually, we know that Voodood's figure will have glittery energy around the axe.

This could be a stretch, but maybe these elites will have the cards. I really hope they do as I would love to keep the cards for the elites and I am still holing out that they do have a new wow pow.

A new wow pow would require that programmers do a lot more work for this game and all future compatible games rather than just tweaking the stats for the figure and giving a new name tag that indicates it's an Elite...now why would Activision spend money on something like that??? Companies like to cut corners and rehash the same thing (in-game variants/special editions) to keep costs down and profits up.

It's consistent with the previous EE characters, which is good. The $20 question is if they still included cards.

In that case they'd also try to make an Elite Lightcore Gill Grunt, Elite Gill Runt, Elite Trap Team Gill Run, Elite Legendary Lightcore Series 2 Metallic Gill RuntGrunt... you get the point.

I understand some of you are actually excited for the release of a new line of Eon's Elite, but let's face the truth...it's going to take a while for those 12 Elite Voodood figures to sell out at a price tag of $20. GameStop can't get rid the last round of Eon's Elite at a new lower MSRP of $15 and some BOGO sales where you could get them for $12.50...all 8 are still available at GameStop.com and at many of my local stores. I'm a passive completionist collector and I did pick up 2 of them at $12.50, but after playing with them for maybe 10-20 minutes each, I realized they're not even remotely worth it at the price point that they're charging for the Elite line. I might pick up the rest at GameStop if they sell them at 50% off their current list price ($7.50), but I might call it quits on "chasing after them all" by then. I've already stopped purchasing Superchargers vehicles because I have at least one of each terrain type and I highly anticipate them being a "one and done" gimmick with limited (if any) utility in any future games. I feel like other more general Skylanders fans have also wisened up as consumers and won't be blindly chasing after vehicles either or any of these other special lines like Eon's Elite.

If my TRU can only manage three people for Wave 2 release a week after the game came out, and an email notice was sent I'm not thinking a $20 repose figure is going to blow up any skirts. I'm glad they are keeping the packaging and changing the figures up a bit this year, not to mention the small price drop - but lets face it, shelves are loaded.

These are collector items, very few parents or average players will consider these at all.
