The rusted theme kind of works well with shield striker

I think we can expect the same color scheme for a chase Burn-Cycle soon, which I think would look better than Shield Striker.



But if they made a chase burn-cycle, I'm sure someone would have found one by now, since wave 2 has been out for about two months now.

I feel the creativity flowing inside the variants designers heads...

At least we don't get many chase variants like Trap Team, that has only three know variants, all Crystal Clear.

Its possible the assortment with the shield striker will come with burn-cycle thus they could be in its assortment.

OR

They could choose to pick a different vehicle all together.

Well it is always nice to see more chase figures.
Not that I've ever found one in 5 years of searching

I've only (definitely) seen one, a High Volt one that TakeYourLemons got - he collects them, so it is great he found it. I like to refer to these as "Copper", it looks like Copper oxidizing like on the Statue of Liberty. I think it is very appropriate for High Volt and his car, since they are electricity/tech based (think copper wires), but not really for Burn Cycle.

Those were common Walmart exclusives. They had them for months, because they came out in the summer and no one wanted them.

I like darkchylde's "Liberty" term for them. smilie

I collect variant figures. Not sure about these though. Do they ring up special in the game or otherwise add to the vehicle count?

Well i was never a big Chase Variant fan....hence i can paint them myself...but the High Volt - Shield Striker set looks better then Eruptor's....also it just fits better...and i like darkchylde's "Liberty" title also.

Why is there only 1 Burn-Cycle? Is that fake? Seems like there would be more than 1 by now.

It could be that they only started adding it in for later boxes. The orginal burn+_cycles could been made months ago and the variant was only added in after the first wave of them?

#18 Posted: 17:23:25 01/12/2015
Maybe it's just the camera, but that Chase Burn-Cycle looks shiny, while the routed High Volt I have doesn't. It's also rather odd that one of these only just showed up not long after a chase Eruptor. Not saying it's fake, but it is rather fishy...

I'm suspicious it is a custom that someone is trying to pass off as real. The finish seems to be very different from High Volt/Shield Striker. Coupled with the single sighting/listing I'm betting the guy is trying to pull a fast one - and apparently made a bunch off of it.
myskylanders Gold Sparx Gems: 2156
#20 Posted: 19:36:20 01/12/2015
I'm also not fully convinced that it is real yet because there is just this single one we know of. BUT I want to point out that Eruptor also looks different from Shield Striker and High Volt. The designs are similar but still quite different.

If you look at the top of the package on the burn cycle you can see were the glue has seperated on the left. My votes fake.

I see a pattern with other variants this game:

Dark Spitfire & Hot Streak with Dark Super Shot Stealth Elf (no Dark Stealth Stinger)
Power Blue Splat & Splatter Splasher with Power Blue Gold Rusher (no Power Blue Double Dare Trigger Happy)
Legendary Astroblast & Sun Runner with Legendary Bone Bash Roller Brawl & Hurricane Jet-Vac (no Legendary Tomb Buggy or Jet Stream)

It makes sense to have NEW SuperChargers with matching variant vehicles, but not returning characters.

There is a Power Blue Double Dare Trigger Happy though.

Never really looked at it that much....do to me being able to make my own Variants if i wanted to. But after studying the pic....it is fake. First there is to much gold on it...its spose to be just a dry brushing of the gold over the Liberty Blue/Green. Second the Liberty Blue/Green paint (that of it that you can see) is to light....it should be darker.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Skylan...%3D252188007539
Also the 4th pic....mouse over to get the bigger view.....look at the right corner....that white line inside the bubble shouldn't be there...everyone knows putting these type of packages in the freezer for a bit pops the bubbles right off.

And if im wrong and it is real...it was painted horribly i would do a much better job. But like said before....i like the High Volt & Shield Striker versions better.

At this point, with none others showing up at all and the areas of the package that definitely look tampered, I'd say fake. They soaked someone for $350 for a very mediocre custom.

I think it is even more suspicious that they are different. It would be nearly impossible to fake 2 exactly the same, so it is more likely that they are both fakes. If they looked identical it would be more likely they were real. Also, only 1 seller having them is very suspicious.

I haven't seen Matteomax posting on here lately either. Hopefully he's ok and hasn't forgotten about the community here. Maybe he's taking a break from Skylanders for a while?

Sounds like the guy made his profit, painted up another one and is trying to cash in again. Odd that he and only he seems to have these, and he had more than one. If they are that rare, for the same person to get two - the odds are astronomical. If they aren't someone else would have seen it by now.

Nah, I'm not MIA, don't worry. I'll shoot him a message, but don't expect a confirmation that it's real or not anytime soon.

I've just been incredibly busy with schoolwork and am spending more time on other games.

I've talked to someone who buys form this eBay seller a lot, he says the eBay seller works at a retail store. So he possibly grabbed them from the box (I heard he has two, but that could've been something completely different) when he was going to put them on the shelf and bought them himself.

EDIT: I was right he did grab two, he actually did sell one, the guy that bought it put up a picture of it in game [User Posted Image].

If you are feeling a bit confused, this will clear things up...

Here's the 1st Burn-Cycle from seller "A" http://www.ebay.com/itm/Skylan...4cAAOSwAKxWWn5F
[User Posted Image]

Here's the same one from seller "B" http://www.ebay.com/itm/172053470668
[User Posted Image]

Here's the 2nd Burn-Cycle from seller "A" http://www.ebay.com/itm/Skylan...cUAAOSwnipWbOZq
[User Posted Image]

If you compare the textures of the first two pics, they are identical. Both variants are from the same seller.

Seller B bought one from seller A, realized it is probably a custom since no other ones have shown up nor has there been any confirmation, so Seller B tries to sell it as quick as he can to get some of his money back for the over-priced custom. Seller A makes another one due to his success with the first one.

Oh, and the in game screen isn't convincing since it can be faked with many editing tools to get a "Special" flag for a figure. Then pose your figure on the platform in front of the TV. Viola. Same goes for the Nightfall one.

It's been weeks and he is still the only person that found one (and he found two!). The other guy, as noted, has one that is pretty obviously the one from the first guy. I still think fake.

That would seem to be the case.
