I could buy Chompy mage regular for 50€ but before I do this, I want to ask if anyone know if he will be released outside the UK.
My hopes are not very high because here in Germany the most electronic markets do not have imaginators anymore. Yesterday a man there told me that everything is cancelled. So I can´t expect that anything new of imaginators will be released.
In a few days a lot of superchargers will be rereleased in Germany... Blute Trigger Happy for 2,99€ or Thrillipede for 6,99€ and so on...

That's one of the more clever ways to setup a "reboot"

Use voice actors and characters from the show along with the "atmosphere" of the show. The atmosphere of Sklyanders really dried out several years ago as cut scenes were typically villain dependent. That idea could really hit pay dirt.

Won't happen though.

Yeah I'm still chewing through the series, wSa watching it with my son, fell asleep, and he finished it with out me. That sprocket slam was definitely something she could have used.

As for cutting back on skylanders, if the series does return, it will have to change shape or die. I really think they will go down the Amiibo 'Card' route if they don't just do it digital, next time. There are too many benefits for everyone.

Going one of those two routes will be cheaper - for everyone, instead of production of hand painted toys that could sit on shelves, they are shot out a machine. With Cards, they could be tied into a Battlecast like card game. They could be updated seasonally, just like say Pokemon cards. Shipping is easier, and stores can carry them without dedicating the retail space. They can be TRADED, while not initially great for Acti - this is osmething that they could find a way to exploit...especially if tied into a card game, something they've obviously been toying around with between the side game and eventually Battlecast. If they go digital, they could map everything to an account, creating ways to unlock variants via activity or season/holiday. The account could be tied to multiple different and different TYPEs of skylander games as well.

And best of all - the risk is marginalized.

Do stores take Amiibo cards and re-sell them like Amiibo or Skylander figures? It could be that Activision may want to take even more preventative measure against used sales/second-hand copies, as that's how I've got most of my figures and I'm sure a great many other players. With so many being so cheap, the newer ones are less appealing and possibly need gimmicks to make up for it.

Interesting that you mention Spyro Kingdom using the card system though. I'll look into that further. smilie

I think it's just a random sentence in their summary of development until the toy part, there isn't much on it.

They don't even need preowned, you can get the NFC data online and put it into any chip, then into a card. That's how people got the BOTW amiibo armor ahead of time.

Oh I do the amiibo thing HARD, but that's Nintendo's fault. It has nothing to do with ease or directly cost, it has to do with the function of the Amiibos being a complete and utter JOKE. I have a huge portion of the amiibos through the Wii U timeframe as physical toys, but by the time the Switch launched, it wsa evident that Nintendo had no CLUE what to do with Amiibos and it was a pure cash grab. I've spent easly hundreds of dollars on figures for say Smash Bros, yet I STILL have to buy the DLC, and all they do is act like a CPU...that I can just select in game anyways? KICK ROCKS.

So for BoTW, eventually I went in and got the NFC chips and did it that way, I can't stomach giving them anymore money for Amiibos until they function more like skylanders - physical DLC. I've never even TRIED to emulate a skylander toy, as I felt the only reason I wasn't getting my money's worth was because I went overboard and bought most of the stuff, so there was more toy than content to go through. It's GREAT for that kid or family that buys several figures per game, but those of us who buy up most of the stuff are left with characters who may only be level 4 and you've beaten the game.

I'm not going to pretend like piracy and second hand market isn't an issue, the second hand market makes it hard to clear the shelves of older figures, but like almost ALL things pirated or resold, it can be traced back to issues created by the maker. Older figures sit on shelves because there has never been a need for them. Each entry made the old entry's associated figures weaker, as a way to push the new figures. My old favorites were Prism Break and Drobot, but both of them are "cheeks" now. And Piracy en masse - rears its head when something isn't in alignment. People only go out of there way when they feels its a better option. Once streaming music found a way to be successful, sure you still have your pirates, but the numbers have shrunk MASSIVELY, and I say this as someone who pirated with the best of them. To my knowledge it wasn't bad in this series, but i it was, it would be tied to two things, figure release schedule/availability, and cost. Face facts, does skylanders look like it takes more to make tha any other AAA game? No. Those sell for $60 at launch. skylanders sells for more than that. They can sight the hardware and figures as a reason, and thats "OK", but then the figures are expensive in general. 4 of the "gimmick"-landers will set you back the cost of a BRAND NEW GAME. And by the looks of the sales, that is mostly driven by profit/greed - not reality. The chips are less than a dollar...at their bulk rates, they are likely less than 25 cents each. The figures themselves aren't special compared to other hand painted toys that sell for a lot less, in the realms of less than $5 and STILL make profit. Character development? Well balancing isn't an expensive part of the equation as there is no real PvP. character models aren't so ridiculously detailed that they blow the development cost of the game out the water. and the stuff gets reused. Like they could most likely sell the figures for half the cost and still make profit. Its their prerogative to sell at the prices they do, but when cost get to that level, its understandable WHY people would bootleg.

I think if Skylanders held high past TT, we'd definately see more piracy, but people didn't care. I remember in the SSA days that people were actively trying to find out how to stick it to Activision and they were fighting back. Now we have the yearly post from Matteo, maybe some tweaks to the backup tool, nothing else.

I was interested a little at one point, but that was driven by the second hand cost of Ghost Roaster at the time, and waiting for characters to be released, both of which strike to my original point...reasonable availability, whether options are limited by cost (he was going for $40+ at the time, his set was going for up to $75) or availability (Wave 4.5 or when it was difficult to get say Ninjini). There was a 3rd and 4th reason though - being bitten by the "terrible skylander" bug, and changing powers. You know, when you buy a character and they turn out to suck? The goat guy in Imaginators is one of the best looking in the entry, I WANT to play him, but he just isn't fun. Snaggletooth was them meshing Bash & Wrecking Ball, but missing the personality of Wrecking Ball and the damage/viability of Bash. After enough of those, you start wanting to test some of the 'Landers. Similar to that is testing moves and synergy, you end up sometimes wanting to wipe a lander, just so you can level them up with the other path.

They did work on some of this, but not enough. Figure prices continued to go up, the states still don't have or are just getting Ro Bo - not some collector thing, literally a level pack, a clothing pack, and new character. The elite characters could do path switching if I recall, but I was working on some characters this weekend, and once they were locked into a moveset I knew nothing about, they were locked. The displays hardly ever seem to work after Wave 2 for the game, so good luck seeing new characters without looking through youtube. And since they never ever made ap oint to make old characters still worthwhile to have, the second hand market got FLOODED.

Sigh...

Only Series+ and Imaginators can switch, no one else unless you have the PM Power in Superchargers.

Adding to the stuff I said, Imaginators also didn't get an article at The Cutting Room Floor either. That game is brimming with cut content(an artist's footage even has King Pen's old design) but again, no one cares, no one even tries to dig up some working names or something.

But figures, no figures, cards, whatever, I just wish the series would survive, but try as the devs tried, the people who left are never coming back unless it's a reboot that kicks previous entries out of the field, Season 2 of Academy unfortunately proved that. Be it distrusting Acti or siding with the hatedom.

VV is still saddled with Destiny 2 and Crash. I know I'm being pessimistic, but... No. This and all the Artstation posts on how Imaginators had so much outsourcing, a good chunk of level artists of TFB are all out of a job or already elsewhere, I see no evidence against the game not being dead with Academy being the last part hanging. Only thing left is that their character modeler lists her job as still active in there.

In fact... I avoided that out of fear. Jeff Murchie is no longer there either, nearly same month as the level artists.

edit: if things weren't lovely enough, someone got the Skylanders and Academy tag searches nuked on Instagram. Good luck seeing newer posts.
