Either her or Beachcomber(unlikely but the team loves their accents), but we'll see. Eric didn't specify if it's a new new character or existing one.

Hey, for an easy two phase boss, her sass is off the charts. Mesmeralda has by far the better design, but she doesn't have mad swag.

Also the better boss theme, because singing theme or not Mesmeralda barely has 30 second loops in hers.

Ok, sassiness we can agree on. Although the music does get repetitive for both of them.

Now that the Skylanders games are mostly dead (for now), I am putting all my focus on this show. I'm really excited for what Eric has coming up and I expect lots of good stuff from it.

I really want Mesmeralda and Tae Kown Crow on the show I think that they will be interesting especially Tae Kow Crow. I don't see Tae Kown Crow as a villan he's just misguided and I definitely don't see him helping the skylanders or becoming one. Mesmeralda on the other hand can have her very own arc she's very interesting and there's so much that needs to be explored like her origin , how did she become evilized and much more.

Just a heads up, someone is putting up fake screenshots that make it seem like Blades, Blackout and Spotlight got in. Dunno if it's the intention of the poster, but it's tagged Academy and highly misleading.

Eric confirmed earlier no Dark and Light characters in S2, in case anyone is wondering.

My friend Blue Gaudreau asked Eric Rogers about episode 2
When Jet-Vac mentioned he lost something dear to him
Eric Rogers replied by saying that Jet-Vac lost his teeth he even sent Blue Gaudreau an image of a draft of a early script with the line it

He's a Sky Baron, they already have two sets of claws rather than wings. However, shame they had to cut it, his speech falls flat when he doesn't explain it.

Being his teeth implies he probably got punched in the face or bit something he shouldn't, which is still pretty interesting to shock a guy into overly planning everything.

inb4 he tried to eat frozen food which is why he's trying to decide which side of the symmetrical gizzard to bite

Eric mentioned Acti cut the budget for Season 2 and he actually lost a lot of people on the team. Seems like LiamR wasn't wrong after all, they couldn't cancel the series but they could still be nasty.

Eric is doing a formal QA over at EngagedFamilyGaming! Tweet at @EFGaming if you want, his words, vague answers : P This is probably the better place if you guys want to ask stuff about development and other things that barely fit 140 characters.

Edit: Since he keeps answering anyway, Spyro x Cynder deconfirmed....!

Shipping is fine for fun, I have no problem with those. The issue is when fans try to push shipping as canon(re: the Voltron drama) or the writers give in to fans at the expense of story(LoS, arguably Legend of Korra but that one was more of a nod). If you're shipping Starwolf, just don't post r34 where kids are looking, and do what you enjoy.

I don't really know, don't watch Voltron, but I did hear of that person holding scripts(I think?) ransom until the creators made their ship canon. Don't really remember if they complied either.

Not if they keep losing money from companies pulling content,or if Acti decides to cut the budget into oblivion, unfortunately. Though he's right about the season amount, some shows drop off even earlier than 5 because they already ran out of content or started pandering.

Yup, it's on iTunes, not sure where else. Trying to wait for it to open to see if I can listen without an account but not counting on it...

edit: wowie, it's working until now! I'll make tl;dw for anyone without iTunes. Eric's skype is super loud but I think I can make out most of it.

Mic popping aside I find it pretty funny Eric didn't even change his voice much for Crash, he sounds pretty much the same


1 - Skylanders Unite confirmed to be two episodes put together.
2 - Netflix sought them out for the original content for kids. Seems that's why he was silent the first few months.
3 - CG was the biggest challenge, due to the limited assets and settings. S1 halfway through and into S2 seems to have had the bigger issues, though they were able to add a little bit more.
4 - Said budget issues meant the show has a bigger sitcom inspiration.
5 - Netflix took the show with S1 mostly planned out, but they had to be given the general gist of S2 and foward to renew the show, meaning production had to speed up.
6 - Eric is in the dark about Skylanders' future in the games as we are, he's only really told about something when they want him to promote the new game's features(E3,E11)
7 - Johnny Rees was their other choice for Crash, but because he was still recognizable as Jet-Vac, they went back to Eric's scratch track mentioned in the Gamespot interview
8 - Team Spyro was actually chosen by the game team (TFB?), he wrote the personalities around what he thought they should be
9 - Jet-Vac is inspired by Captain America which makes sense how didn't I notice that before
10 - Secondary characters were freely chosen by the writers, based on the figures he has on the office. More or less shows he has an S2 Hex because he immediately brings up Skull
11 - VAs are here to stay unless their characters no longer have story purpose
12 - As we know from twitter, his favorite characters to write are JV(character development) and Eruptor(comedy).
13 - Eruptor is specifically stated to not be a dumb person, but he fits the goofier moments because of his innocence (E7)
