Guess this is what he meant by continuity - this is like Battlecast, Kaos and the Doom Raiders aren't supposed to get along but they do. It's fine, I mean it works there, and what matters is character interaction since it's not like 6kylanders and foward won't change status quo around again.

On no Gill Grunt...

I hope every Skylander appears in this show at least once, even if they're just cameos. I would be really happy if I see Sunburn, Whirlwind or Scratch even if it's just for one episode or in the background.

Doom Raiders in Season 1!
YUSH! smilie

They will probably introduce Gill Grunt in S2 since he apparently likes higher numbers. smilie

Unfortunately, with the way CGI works a cameo appearance wouldn't justify creating a brand new character model. I think Skylanders will only appear if they are main characters in the show or if they are guest starring for an episode in order to advertise a new figure.

Oh yeah that's true and when was the last time Sunburn got any attention since SSA? However, I still have hopes for Whirlwind having her own episode since she seems to be one of the most popular air Skylanders besides Jet-Vac.

I made list of who I think will appear!

Italics - deconfirmed

Fire - Eruptor smilie and Hot Dog smilie
Earth - Terrafin smilie
Magic - Spyro smilie and Pop-Fizz smilie
Tech - Trigger Happy? smilie I'm unsure on this one.
Undead - Well, if Cynder smilie isn't coming till Season 2 I have no idea.
Air - Whirlwind smilie and Jet Vac smilie (Because of what you said above)
Life - Stealth Elf smilie and hopefully not Shroomboom smilie
Water - Again, since Gill Grunt smilie won't be in Season 1 I'm not sure. I'd love to see Echo, though! smilie
Light and dark - Who knows with this one. I'd like to see all of them eventually. smilie smilie smilie smilie smilie smilie

What does everyone else think about this?

And if Malefor is involved,Hex probably will be bundled along too.

He also confirmed right after Rollerbrawl is the Undead rep, or at least one of them. Can't say I like it but better than Chop Chop or Grim Creeper(nothing to do with me not liking their figures, their personalities have nothing other than 'spooky and heroic').

I can only think of two reasons why they didn't pick Cynder for season 1:
They wanna save her story for season 2?
To encourage Roller Brawl figure sales?
Bifrost Platinum Sparx Gems: 6650
#212 Posted: 18:27:56 10/04/2016
Or Cynder isn't as popular as her despite story and personality potential(RB's sass and determination is nice but Stealth Elf's right there) and they'll wait before taking risks. Eric seems to have been given info on the flagships even if,in Gills' case,he isn't following it closely.

Also true! smilie A lot of classic fans would appreciate smilie but I guess the target audience would prefer smilie Saying that, though, I think the writers have considered what older fans would like to see, and that's why we might get a Cynder story in season 2!

It goes along with Cynder's backstory too. Featuring too prominently would go against the 'everyone is wary of her etc.' vibe.

No,but we'll probably find out in first impressions - the comics treat them as free transformation and the games don't. It's probably supposed to be that since why else would you be carrying your Rift Engine instead of leaving it on the vehicle?

The issue isn't the (im)maturity being between Futurama and Gravity Falls, it's more that the sexy one is walking lava who lacks toes, fingers, neck and a ton of other stuff. Unless he'll be unsucessful because of it, which would be funnier.

Well, it wasn't Krome's intentions as the concept artist heavily implied(they were busier with the whole 'anti-spyro' thing), and from the comics they appear more as fire forged friends.

That would fanservice if they suddenly brought that in.

But in the novels and comics, Spyro and Cynder are simply long-time friends with no hints of romance towards each other.

Then you haven't looked around hard enough. At least SSA was released in Japan, so turning off filters or looking in the right places will probably yield a bunch.

I'm not ever trying though, I like knowing that my only memory of NFSW Skylanders is oversized butts or shirtless Knight Light, nothing that'll permanently scar me.

Back on topic, he changed the logo out for something else and started answering less and less, wonder if Eric reached a point where he can't spill more of the beans.

I'm actually excited for this and I haven't played Skylanders since the first game lmao

I hope we get some references to Classic Spyro (Maybe we even get Sparx by his side and if Spyro gets attacked or injured his color changes etc) I think that would be a nice way to be like "Look, this is new Spyro, it's not ideal but it's pretty amazing, we still acknowledge his roots"

I wouldn't be excited if it weren't for who is doing the show, I mean...If this is anything like Futurama (First half of course cuz the revival was kinda garbage) it's going to be amazing

I can't really think of any essential questions about shows,to be honest the first time I'm actually following the period before one releases,but maybe ask if it'll have any plots (or anyone) based or from the skylanders comics? I mean we know there's no SC villains but Calliope finally getting her wish is long overdue.

OK, more info on the animation he says its insanely high quality for TV standards. In other words, the animation quality is going to be very very good, much better the the average CG show.


Also, I sent the likely last questions I will ask. They are the following

Any Plans for Hex?

Any tie-ins for the Skylander comics?

Can you give us a hint on what channel it might be on?

Enchiladas?

Yeah it'd be really neat if they would incorporate Sparx into this somehow.


I wonder, does anyone here know if Sparx has appeared in any of the comics or the books at all before?

If one of them end up being too pushy to ask,you can also ask locations - not game levels, I mean if we'll see the Underworld, underwater places, or whatever themes the fandom likes in general.

You don't change the design of a single character in such a huge way just because some fans that aren't ever coming back anyway complain about it. Cynder's chest was subtle changes over Giants and SF and fine,but his short snout is very proeminent.

He's also adorable this way, so I don't really care, haven't for a few years.

I don't understand exactly what you're saying but it seems to me like you're a genwunner

So am I but like, we got three (I'd argue four) Amazing OG Spyro games, we shouldn't be selfish, we need to let it evolve. classic spyro is dead, face it, it sucks but it's dead, but we still have the memories

So not to seem rude but maybe we should all stop ****ing complaining and be grateful for what we did get and that Spyro himself isn't dead.

They're not dumb, they know having Spyro be main cast is a marketing tactic, just as Spyro even being in Skylanders was a marketing scheme

Unpopular opinion here, but I thought Skyro looked better than his LOS counterpart.

Depending on how each episode is written, Spyro will either be a recurring character featured in every episode/'adventure' or he will be a recurring character seen at the beginning/end of each episode that doesn't go on every 'adventure'.

Just my thoughts.

Opinions aren't facts, fyra.

And I can tell that you didn't look into the recent comics or look at the tweets posted or uploaded on Rogers' Twitter page on the show.

If you are still upset over Spyro's involvement in Skylanders, don't derail this topic with complaints, simply complain elsewhere please.

He could look like his cake in last week's Cake Masters episode.

[User Posted Image]

I prefer his design to DOTD any day since he isn't horribly out of proportions and AHT because the giant horns are just comical instead of pratical(Krome Spyro and classic is good for their purpose and mood), but derails derails.

Eric already confirmed Spyro is the lead,though not if he's just as much as the other 4 mains(SE, Pop Fizz,Jet-Vac and Eruptor). I've only casually watched Futurama a few times so I don't really know how the main cast works there.

LoS Spyro is the by far the ugliest. It's disgusting. Both ANB/EN and DoTD are terribly designed.


Anyway, yeah I expect the former. He's likely going to be the main character and maybe go to the sidelines every few episodes to give another Skylander the Spotlight.
