What I ask myself even more is why is Bomb Shell so acrobatic. His weight and shape doesn't seen to permit that.

Didn't remember him being so popular, guess it might be a reason as well, then.

Guess Bomb Shell was preferred because he's already comical by himself (which is probably also why he's so athletic), even though the concept of an evil Mabu could still be very interesting.

Speaking of comical characters, I'd like if Cluck and Shellshock made it into the show as well: they feel much more Academy-ish than most pre-Imaginators Skylanders and NPCs and could work nicely as occasional villains.

Cluck, Shellshock and most importantly, Moneybone could be great in SA. The show needs a lot more VV representation, imo. It's lacking more than it should be.

Forgot about the Count, he could be very enjoyable as well.
Very true, Kaossandra is probably the most important V.V.'s reference, and even that is debatable since only her appereance is their work, while the character itself was already planned by TfB.

Greebles, vehicles, minor villains and Skylanders aren't even comparable to how much TfB there actually is.
Not having a single SWAP Force or SuperChargers' character in the main team is probably the biggest offender, and design isn't an excuse: Pop Thorn could fit perfectly, and Dive-Clops would even fill the Water spot.

Not to mention their games also provide interesting lore starting points, such as the Elementals, Mount Cloudbreak, the Spell Punks' relevance to the whole history of the Skylands (and Spellslamzer as well) and other smaller details.

I absolutely want to clarify I don't think this was done on purpose, Eric and his team probably don't even know the difference between V.V. and TfB's games nor what they introduced, but they are always willing to hear fans' suggestions, so hopefully it's constructive criticism.

I think Cluck's niche is already too filed by the Doom Raiders, especially with GQ's new characterization. Moneybone, Mesmeralda and Shellshock could definately work, especially since the latter fits right in with the fact villains stroll around and work freely on campus grounds.

AAAAAAAAAAAH!
OH MY GOD, EPISODE 11!

FINALLY!
Finally the plot is advancing, and what an andvancement!

So Strykore is the dark entity, and probably Kaos' father as well, and we know he might join forces with Malefor in Season 3: that's fantastic!
Guess both had something to do with the Great War, at this point.

The episode itself was enjoyable, but this is what I was waiting for the entire season.
The Doom Raiders taking over Kaossandra's castle, her being turned into gold before returning Kaos' powers to him, Stealth Elf beginning to doubt Eon's words as much as Spyro after being the one who tried to persuade him he wasn't hiding anything...
YESSSS!
MORE!


Probably my favorite episode so far!

I hope not.

The main focus of episode 11 was Dreamcatcher loosing her memory and becoming a cadet once again, but as I said that part was basically overshadowed by the other ongoing plot.
The smaller portion of the episode was actually the one which I liked the most.

The rest are educated guesses, but certainly wouldn't be shocking revelations.


Don't tell me episode 12 doesn't get things any further than that, I need more development.

Phew!

I understand, though, I'll have to rewatch the first season because I didn't remember a lot of more or less important details.

EDIT: just saw the penultimate episode.
Wow.
Eric's not messing around for sure, this time.

The entire episode was entertaining, intriguing and full of lore.
Seriously, basically every scene contained a small or big information, like how the Skylands' technology works thanks to both Magic and Tech which was honestly unexpected.
And now I totally wish one of Jet-Vac's reposes had a magic eggs Wow Pow: I mean, how many upgrades can his blaster have...?

And what can I say about the development?
Sprocket and Jet-Vac's relationship felt quite natural for the amount of time they had at their desposal, and I cannot believe Spyro is the one leaving the group.
I mean, that's absolutely understandable, but I would have bet on Jet-Vac, exactly because of him feeling old and obsolete; that was a plot twist I didn't see coming.

Do I even have to say anything about Eon's revelation and Kaos discovery?
Only thing I can think about is that I literally cannot wait for the finale, tomorrow!
And that I secretly hope the dragons were sent to... well, the Dragon Realms; but that's probably just me wanting Classic Spyro references.


Must have missed the double Wilhelm Scream, though, unless it got removed when they dubbed.
My body is ready for the conclusion!

Not that those are all going to get in, but if any do I'll be happy. As for villains go, I hope Mesmeralda and Luminous.

is crash bandicoot will be back in season 3 ??


as in season 1, dark power can make interdimensional hole at enough power like when doom raiders escape from cloud cracker prison and crash comes to academy when dark power was raised in skylands are falling.

so, i assume that when strykore will make enough dark power in season 3, maybe crash and its chars like coco and dr neo cortex will sucked to skylands. but it's just my theory.

Any implication of these two having an actual intimate relationship is NO THANK YOU from me, even if they're implied to be over 18 years old like the main trio. Maybe there's one benefit that the r34 community has long abandoned Skylanders.

Also, it'd get lots of angry parents.

I don't see any reason for Crash to come back, I think the only reason why he was in the first season was most likely to promote the N Sane Trilogy coming out, they were probably trying to introduce Crash to a younger generation.

They did reuse lots of things from season 1 Even the butterfly that Dreamcatcher turns into in season 1 for a brief second could be seen in season 2...I’m not saying that crash is going to be in future seasons and that it’s an actually fact I’m just saying that I have a feeling that he might make a cameo just because he costed a lot of money and that they like reusing many things.

Eric is stating on twitter that Bad Breath wasn't put in the Book of Skylanders so he's still a cadet of sorts, that makes no sense. We don't see any of them being drawn on the book, Eon in fact is finished by the time the camera returns. Bad Breath IS a skylander, Belly of the Beast is just feeling like a huge oversight in general.

Chill being a cadet - her being frozen in the pilot makes her a Skylander and he was also informed of that just now. I think Food Fight is in the pilot or the intro in the Book, again, treated as a cadet. Hex not appearing because the roster is full is one thing, but since this isn't too long after Split Decision, the fact she won't appear again until the finale while 2 characters get mislableled is another problem.
