Just for the sake of speculation I would personally focus more on the Ultimates rather than the Chaotic.

The latter could very well be another special Started Pack type (think about Dark but instead Kaos themed) but the former?
A new SuperCharger-like revamps line?
New Gimmicklanders able to evolve or do something else...?

That "Chaos Eye" seems like some special item (which would imply a new set of gimmick figures) but... I don't know.
I simply don't believe enough in this leak to really get into it.

As I said before I think it could pertain to a Mega Evolution-like gimmick. One I would totally support as it would be a gimmick that's linked to the Skylanders themselves and not some side toy like the last two games.

Assuming the ultimate thing is true, it has to be something new; and considering the elite and legendaries already cover the stats boost thing, the ultimate may be some other kind of "evoluted" version of the regular ones. Maybe it is a super version of skylanders with few new skills (similar to wow pows) or maybe is just another stat boosted skylander with new colours or packaging.

But, again, this seems very fake to me, it just feels it's been taylor made to some of the fans requests.

So it would be a way to keep the classic gameplay of a character while also giving him/her the possibility to temporarily change it (or maybe even without time limits).

Could be, after all they made a vehicle gimmick when Tread Head was already there, might take inspiration for Pop-Fizz as well.

To be honest that suspicious Chaos Eye sounds like some kind of Adventure Piece judging by the description next to his name.

This is clearly fake... the huge focus on Spyro/dragons gives it up. No offense, but considering the source is some guy on Instagram, you should have think more before creating a topic that will have members go crazy over one fan expectations.



I don't think that it's my call to restrict this potential information and not share it, it's totally up to everyone to make their own mind up of its authenticity. Still, this isn't a topic solely for the discussion of said 'leak' but for discussion on the next skylanders game as a whole, whether that be rumours or news. I'm doing this to make sure that the inevitable news topic is far cleaner this year rather than general discussion or rumours being posted there.


You will have a lot of cleaning to do after editing the first post to say the leak was fake. Full pages of posts about something that is so fake it makes me cringe... xD

Not to mention that it would seem another gimmick would be coming this year, and with the competition not doing starter packs, Skylanders needs to advertise no needed starters after this year, which means they need to simplify things. Perhaps allow for people to piece together levels and offer a level creator that can be shared, while bringing back Elemental Gates.

If they keep doing the whole gimmick/you need a new starter every year, this franchise will soon be done.

That list just seems too tailored to what fans want, that it screams bogus.

Right! Just a question: How many Skylanders are there now? I was gonna make a new topic for this but I don't think it's necessary. Anyway, this leads on to my question: Do you think Sky6 and any games that may come after it will release less figures each time? I can't even keep track of them any more!

Unique, all ingame variants, or everyone everyone? Skylanders Character List has some numbers and I know UncleBob keeps track too.

Less each time would be risky. Maybe necessary, but this is Acti. If they could release the exact same numbers each year that worked they'd do it, they only don't because of the need for eyecatching gimmicks.

Not really... Infinity and Dimensions are just updates of the same game whereas Skylanders is a completely new game each time. At the most I can see them just release a Portal Owner's pack, and actually, I think having a starter pack would actually help out since they don't have to worry about Infinity 4.0 or Dimensions 2, meaning anyone just starting to get into TTL games would have an extra option.

4 x 8 for SA, 2 x 8 for Giants, 4 x 8 for SF, 4 or 6 x 8 + 2 x 2 for TT, 2 x 8 + 2 + 2 for SC. That includes the revamps and guests for SC, and the two numbers for TT depends on whether you want to count the minis as separate characters. So 136 without minis or 152 with minis. This is not counting variants or reposes as independent characters.

Everyone I've seen talking about this at least hopes for Malefor to at least show up for a bit, except maybe some I heard are still bitter over DOTD to the point they straight up don't want to remember that he exists. David from VV already expressed interest, it just needs an okay,or on TFB's case, for that interest to get to them as well.

But on Trappable, still unlikely. Malefor is almost as tall as the entire Academy - he wouldn't fit in the majority of indoors areas unless he was shrunk to ridiculous levels.

A Skylanders game with a massive focus on Spyro and dragons would be unacceptable for me. Skylanders has become its own thing that can go on without Spyro characters anymore.

A Spyro game that include several dragon Skylanders would be great though, just don't label it a Skylanders game.

Too bad it's confirmed fake. This would have been my favorite gimmick. And the game probably would have been my favorite in the series.

I did have a weird dream about this last night. Eon was talking to Stealth Elf about every person's energy within them, then mentions if she heard of "Infinite Energy" and asks if she would like to experience this new power. The scene changes to Stealth Elf transforming into this huge brown buff leathery elf with no eyes and long hair. She then slowly reverts back to her normal state. During this revertion I could see a taller version of Stealth Elf: an older version of her with an older woman's figure. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
A buff version of her is not what I would have thought of her in a transformed state, but dreams are always weird.

Custom figure, by the way. Whenever I think of taller Skylanders my mind just defaults to this nowadays, even though it's commonplace for most characters in the series have small proportions.

I have never seen that custom before (it's pretty good by the way). But the older Stealth Elf I saw in my dream was more realistic proportioned, but curvy while maintaining her usual appearance. Her eyes weren't serious and she had a calm expression on her face with wide eyes. And my dream wasn't in the game's 3D, but in 2D like a cartoon/anime.

If they don't advertise this as the last starter needed to be bought for the next couple of years, this series is gonna be hurting bad soon.

Competition now promises no need to fork out 70+ for the foreseeable future, while Activision will continue asking for 70+'for starters, 100 for dark starters, and 13+ for figures. That's not including expansions.

This is why I've grown to appreciate the competition. Not a lot of variants over the past one to three years. Never felt the need to buy multiple, starters, though I did buy a second Lego Dimensions starter for X1 yesterday, but only cause it was 52 bucks after tax, and Dimensions and Infinity don't offer starters just for variants.

Skylanders needs a restructuring, but not in a full blown reboot kind of way.

I think it would be good if there was another gimmick but make a gimmick that doesn't need a new portal every year. Bringing some of the old game content like arenas and PVP would be a great start. I am hoping for a sky 6 to be a game based around those elements.

Something quite interesting just came to my mind, what if Sky 6 is a remake of SSA. Think about it, in SC the core of light, which needed one whole game to be completed, was destroyed. In SSA the core of light was portrayed as one of the most important sources in Skylands, so I doubt they would just carelessly forget about it like they did in the following games until SC. They could make us search for the Elemental sources (not sure if that was the actual name) once again but in a more twisted way. Maybe the Undead source is deep in a forest, rotting all life and the Water source is extincting all lava in a super important volcano etc. And to top all of that, they're being guarded by the Doom Raiders... no that would be too much. But give each element an actual boss like in Trap Team (yes, Magic too). And the gimmick could be a Skylander with the two opposite elements. For example a Fire & Water Skylander and an Undead & Life Skylander etc. Now that's something that would make this franchise skyrocket.

That would be awesome,but people would complain it's reusing plots too soon. Still hoping TFB won't drop the Core so easily just because VV had it destroyed though, even if a replacement using the Sources and some new machine since they're,well, eternal sources, they won't run out even if the vessels were all crushed to dust.

Dual-element Skylanders would definitely allow for some really creative designs. As for the whole Spyro's Adventure remake, I think that's better kept for an anniversary title. Like, celebrating ten years of Skylanders or something.

Better? I don't think slapping two clashing color palettes in the same character is in any way better. I think Adam meant it like dual typings in Pokémon - a Fire/Water character uses steam, an Air/Water character uses blizzards, those kinds of mixes. However, they wouldn't get much use - worse,they're an excuse for a huge roster unless they left some potential ones out. I think as a special side-gimmick like Minis and Elites are, with a few select ones with no risk of not covering some niche,would work out better. Maybe even have them themed after some levels or villain motifs kinda like Fiesta and Count Moneybone in the same game was a nice touch.
