Am I the only one who thinks Stealth Elf's design was completely butchered? Her nose and mouth and arms and hands are so tiny, it's giving me Uncanny Valley vibes... And look how big her forehead is.... Eeeeuhhhh...

Stealth Elf...meh...
Jet Vac...Okay, I guess
Eruptor...meh...
Pop Fizz...someone get me a barf bag.

Spyro looks the best out of all characters.

SE has Hex's proportions except for the hands, which is weird.Other than that,dunno, elves in Skylanders are always weird and she's just a little too stylized but hardly ruined.

Jet-Vac looks like Jet-Vac, maybe a bit more detailed which is nice.
Eruptor is SB Knuckles, which I just can't hate on it's hilarious.
Pop Fizz is just looking too angry for a crazy alchemist.

Out of all of them I'd say Pop Fizz is probably the worst. I mean, from the games, he's upbeat and wacky. Unless of course he's only making those faces because there's either something bad or serious happening off-screen that he doesn't approve of.

I love how when the first Skylanders game was announced people hated his design but now, just a few years later, people find him adorable. It's wonderful to see how the tables have turned.

Anyway, I'm super excited for this. I've always thought that Skylanders would work well with some kind of show to go along with it.


That's because Acti chose literally the worst screenshot possible of SSA. Spyro dos NOT look that rough and deformed in the final game, though he still had the weird mouth until Giants.
And we know the haters stuck to that 2011 picture until today because the argument is easier if you lie.

The games also slightly improved on his head over the years(less thick eyebrows, less spotted scales, a curvier mouth), which is the crux of most people's complaints. This one and the comics straight up give him enough snout to look good.

Granted, the game's graphics weren't necessarily the best to show off the redesign. Swap Force and onwards made the redesign look much better, IMO

I think maskless Stealth Elf just takes some getting used to. If we weren't already used to her wearing the mask then we probably wouldn't even think twice about how she looks.

So I'm now catching up ton this and I have to say it looks wayyy better than I was expecting. So I'm already impressed. I actually really like the designs of most of what we've seen. I especially like what they did with Kaos. His head always seemed just a bit out of proportion to me. Pop Fizz I don't mind, since like others have said, I think that's just because of whatever he's looking at. Stealth Elf on the other hand. Yikes. Here's to hoping Sharpay from HSM can give good VO or she might just be my least favorite character on the show.

That kind of depends on the line up so can someone give a run down of what characters are in Season 1 and/or 2?

I'm pleasantly surprised by the graphics. I like every single design of the shown characters, even SE looks good to me.

Spyro is adorable.

Hoping new characters will be feature each episode, out of the core group.

Because Netflix is really popular, including for families with young kids (hence why all accounts have a dedicated kid-friendly sub-profile by default). Videos on-demand is the way things are going. The old TV format is slowly dying out - tons of people are ditching their cable boxes in favor of internet.

Look at Dreamworks, they've stopped making series for TV channels, and their Netflix series are higher quality than their TV series IMO (for a good comparison, see Dragons: Riders/Defenders of Berk vs Dragons: Race to the Edge).

Phoenix Crystal is the best unreleased Crystal.

In pretty much all the pictures of Pop Fizz it looks like everyone is looking at something evil or bad off screen (probably Kaos). So I'm sure he just looks weird because of the expression he has at the moment the shot was taken. I'm sure he looks more like his toy the rest of the time. But anyways his fur looks quite nice!

Also,the articles didn't really explain why there are two seasons already when Eric said that'd be a quesrion for later - apparently TeamTO got renewed on the spot by Netflix before the audiences even see it. That's confidence.

So eith Season 2 almost guaranteed, Cynder is a go! If anyone gets a bunch of questions to ask Eric and needs plenty per tweet, I'd appreciate if someone asked for Hex on either season .w.'

Was just about to post that... It's sad, really! These guys think they're doing a service to Spyro by harassing the show runner that had NOTHING to do with that initial decision. Eric is a good man. He doesn't deserve to be getting all this hate. It's a couple of images, guys. Wait till a trailer or, you know, the full thing releases to crap on it. Or let it move on without talking about it at all...

Also, seriously! Ok, there's a difference between being excited for a show based off of the several tweets from the head writer, general cast and screenshots and immediately hating a show based off of nothing but a screenshot of Spyro. And, Haedox... what you're doing is not criticism. "no" is not an insightful constructive critique in any stretch of the imagination. What you are doing is harassing a show runner of a show that was never made for you. It was made for fans of Skylanders! Which CLEARLY you are not. So, stop being an asshole!

He's also not even the animator, but sure genwunners, he's the cause of allll your problems.
He seems to be dealing with it nicely (with Josh Haber as a co-writer he sure learned well)but still, it's always good to compliment and make his day.

That certain person we talked about in Imaginators board is also among them. As I said there, too early tk be mad at things, but damn it's infuriating to see niceness really doesn't matter when they're not going to have an ounce of kindness themselves and I beat myself up over insulting so many people yesterday.

Weren't Grumblebums mutated (for some reason I can't remember)?
That could be their normal form.

Aaaaah, finally getting to share my opinion about what we've seen so far.
Absolutely liking it!

Spyro is adorable but I love how he can still look threatening.
Eruptor is probably going to be that not-so-smart guy which always tries ro keep the group together.
Pop Fizz looks weird, almost as if he were in the middle of his transformation.
Stealth Elf looks a bit grown up but she better put her mask back on before she scares some apprentice.
Jet-Vac looks simply perfect (the only slightly different thing is the beak).
Kaos is perfect and so is Eon (what's up with his beard in one screenshot and... Oh, yeah, his PHYSICAL FORM?!).

Really liking the graphics, can't wait to see the first trailer!
