    Story


    Quote: Story
    The story of Skylanders Imaginatiors takes place long ago when the Ancients used a mysterious power known as Mind Magic to create everything in Skylands. With it, they conjured into existence anything that they could imagine. However, they soon learned that in the wrong hands, it could be very dangerous, and so they sealed it away so that it could never be misused. After discovering this ancient secrete, Kaos has unleashed the power of Mind Magic into Skylands once again - and he is using it to create an unstoppable army of Doomlanders, the likes of which have never been seen! Now it's up to Portal Masters to create Skylanders Imaginators from their own imagination to stop Kaos and his evil Doomlanders before it is too late. And to help train them, Eon is sending the greatest mystic warriors of all time - the Senseis!

  • "fan-favorites" & Academy stars will return.
  • all old characters are playable.
  • There will be online Racing and Traps will have same use as in SC.
  • Senseis will be as big as Giants (Lord have mercy) and Imagination crystals as big as Traps.

    Ok I found a page with lots of info in Drawdler's video, typing it up cause my phone is stupid and doesn't upload images.


    • Create your own Skylander - For the first time, their imaginations to life and create their own Skylanders, called Skylanders Imaginators. With endless creation options of powers, abilities, catchphrases, appearance and much more, kids can build their very own creations out of their imaginations, or use the randomize feature to allow the game to choose parts for them.

    • Creation Crystal - Skylanders Imaginators introduces a new toy type - a Creation Crystal. This vessel allows players to create and transport their unique Skylanders to consoles at anytime, anywhere! Creation Crystals are elementally aligned. Portal Masters can create one character per Creation Crystal.

    • Meet the Senseis - The Skylanders franchise continues to offer engaging characters that kids love to discover as they play the game. Skylanders Imaginators will introduce new guest stars to Skylanders called Senseis to fans. Senseis include 20 new characters and 11 former villains. Each Sensei is a master of one of 10 powerful Battle Classes (e.g. Knight, Sorcerer, Brawler, and more).

    • Being the master of these Battle Classes, only Senseis have the ability to unleash Sky Chi - the ultimate Battle Class super move. Sensei Skylanders have a master-to-apprentice relationship with newly created Imaginator Skylanders. This is supported in-game through the Sensei unlocking of unique Imaginator weapons, the increase of Imaginator level caps, providing access to special areas in the game, as well as the unlocking of new Secret Techniques for Imaginators of the same class.

    • New Storyline and Gameplay - Skylanders Imaginators[/b] features an all-new adventure-filled, comedic and charming story with fun new characters, as well as returning franchise favorites. The game delivers a diverse and dynamic story-driven gameplay experience, focused on the magic of sparking imagination, inspiration, and excitement of kids as they create their own superheroes - all set within a variety of compelling new environments.

    • Additionally, Skylanders Imaginators will support local co-op multiplayer. Players can place two Creation Crystals or two toys or a combination of the Crystals and toys on the Portal of Power to maximize the fun!

    Kaos is main villain again, all previous Skylanders work.

    Quote:
    Portal Masters can unleash their imaginatons like never before when Skylanders Imaginators launches on October 16 in North America! Skylandes Imaginators gives kids the power to create Skylanders and bring them to life for the first time in an all-new adventure with a compelling storyline, puzzles, battles, and a new lineup of heroes and villains.

    Since the inception of Skylanders, kids around the world have imagined their own Skylanders characters. Towys for Bob, the orignators of Skylanders and pioneers of Toys-to-Life, is back as the lead development team. Skylanders Imaginators will offer fans more choices than ever before with infinite possibilities to create. Now fans can create their own Skylanders with endless combinations of powers, abilities, catchphrases, and much more that deliver hours of replayable fun.

    The story of Skylanders Imaginatiors takes place long ago when the Ancients used a mysterious power known as Mind Magic to create everything in Skylands.

And to help train them, Eon is sending the greatest mystic warriors of all time - the Senseis!

    Skylanders Imaginators supports the 300+ character toys from all previous Skylanders games - including *insert name of each game here* - that kids can enjoy in the real world and in the virtual game world. As plays add new Skylanders to their collection, they expand their in game experiences.

    Character bios:

    Quote: King Pen
    King Pen hails from a militaristic unit of penguins who protect the Cloudmelt Glaciers. During an epic battle, King Pen was trapped in an avalanche and had to take refuge in a nearby cave for the remainder of the winter season. During his solitude, he was visited by a mysterious Yeti Master, named Snow Wah, who began teaching him an ancient combat style known as “Flipper-Fu”. King Pen was already a skilled fighter, but the wise teacher helped him to understand the spiritual and philosophical nature of warfare, turning the penguin into an unstoppable force. When he finally emerged from the cave, tales of his newfound abilities spread far and wide. When Master Eon caught wind, he recruited King Pen into his top secret training program, where he quickly rose up the ranks to become the leader of the Skylander Sensei. Years later, King Pen returned to the site of the avalanche to thank his teacher, but no evidence of Snow Wah or the cave was ever found – leaving many to wonder if the Yeti had ever existed at all.


    Quote: Tri-Tip
    Long before he became a Sensei, Tri-Tip wandered Skylands searching for the mythical Warping Walnut Tree, rumored to never be at the same place long before moving to a new location. After many years, he found the tree - and just before it vanished once again, he took from it a Golden Walnut, which was said to reveal life’s purpose to those who could open it. But to his dismay, the enchanted walnut could not be cracked no matter how hard he struck it with his thick head. Realizing that only a weapon of immense power could crack the magical shell, and not his head, Tri-Tip forged a mighty mace and trained with the greatest warriors to become the ultimate Master of Smashing. But on the day when he was finally ready to open the shell, he paused. It was then that Tri-Tip realized his true purpose – one that the unopened walnut had been teaching him all along. His purpose in life was to use his skills to protect Skylands. He then gifted the unopened walnut to one of his students and left to join the Skylanders.


    Quote: Golden Queen
    A powerful sorceress made entirely of gold and riches beyond your wildest imagination. She’d trade her entire fortune for just a little more. But why trade when you can steal? So that’s what she did. She stole, and stole, and stole! No matter how much she took though, it was never enough. Through evil sorcery, she even learned how to turn people and objects into solid gold! Yet STILL, that just wasn’t enough. The idea that there was any amount of treasure out in Skylands that didn’t belong to her was infuriating, so she set out on a quest to take every last cent of it. But she couldn’t do it alone. It was then that she formed the Doom Raiders - the most notorious group of Villains ever assembled – declaring herself their unquestioned leader. Together, the Doom Raiders terrorized Skylands until Master Eon and the Trap Masters put a stop to them, locking all them up inside Cloudcracker Prison. Eon then gave these Villains a choice – either remain imprisoned or become Skylander Senseis, teaching a new generation of Imaginators their formidable battle skills as well as how to stay clear of a life of crime. They accepted the deal but first had to prove themselves by re-arranging all the books in the Academy’s library, a task which took almost two years, and much to the Queen’s dismay, had nothing to do with gold. But this gave her an opportunity to rethink her insatiable desire for treasure and that maybe there is more to life than stealing. She now trains the Sorcerer Class and considers herself mostly reformed.

    Spotted on the official website by TheCreator on the game's page.

    The website also has a non-functioning "Crash" tab next to "Standard Edition", "Dark Editon", and "Toys" (which shows the above picture).

    The site also showed off the toys of a couple of new Sensei characters that we've previously seen in artwork form, as well as Wolfgang's regular toy.

    Thanks to TheCreator for spotting this.


    Ember

    Quote: Kotaku


    [User Posted Image]


    While Skylanders Imaginators is all about creating your own custom characters, they’d be nothing with Sensei characters to show them the way and give Activision new figures to sell. We’ll be seeing a lot of new faces during E3 this week, including Ember, the fire-based Sensei of the Sentinel class.

    Here's her bio:
    Quote:
    Ember was raised inside the Dragonfire Dojo, having come from a long line of Fire Sentinels that were skilled in the art of Dual-Blades. It was the dream of her father that Ember would follow their tradition and take over the family training facility, and so she practiced every day. She was naturally gifted, and soon even the greatest Dual-Blade Masters were no match for Ember. When Kaos heard of this, he took over her village and banned martial arts entirely, for fear of an uprising. But Ember fought back, unleashing an impressive barrage of Samurai pyrotechnics that drove the invaders away. Even though her village was free, she knew then that there was greater evil out there that needed to be stopped, and so she joined the Skylanders to train others in the art of the Sentinel Battle Class. One day though, Ember plans to return to her homeland and reopen her family’s school, but not until Skylands is safe once and for all.

    A wormhole has opened in Skylands and the great Aku Aku appears! He has come to announce the once-in-two-decades Synchronization Celebration--a time when all of the worlds align perfectly. All the inhabitants of Wumpa Island are having a party and they want to invite the Skylanders. But with Kaos on a quest to take over Skylands using his army of Doomlanders, the Skylanders must focus on stopping his evil plans. Never one to shy away from danger, the legendary marsupial Crash Bandicoot leaps through the wormhole to join the Skylanders in the ultimate battle against Kaos!

    Since it keeps coming as User Posted Images I've made them links.


    Quote: dark52
    The latest edition of the Argos catalogue has included advance listings for several previously unannounced Skylanders from Skylanders Imaginators.

    They include an Earth Sentinel named Barbella, an Undead Smasher called Chopscotch, as well as two returning villains: the Tech Quickshot "Dr. Krankcase" and the elementally realigned Fire Ninja "Tae Kwon Crow".

    [User Posted Image]

    And a few days ago there was an official reveal at the "Sweet Suite 16" event in New York City where they showed off another elementally realigned returning villain, the now Dark Sentinel "Hood Sickle".

    Kaos figure

    Quote: dark52
    Thanks to a Reddit post by Syniz we now know that as part of a bonus for pre-ordering Skylanders Imaginators it appears that certain participating retailers are going to be giving away a free Kaos figure.

    In the past two years we've had a Kaos trap and a Kaos trophy but now we're finally going to have a proper Kaos toy to add to our collections.

    Map

    Interview

    Quote: Nightmoon
    The most important bit of the interview (incl. spoiler tags for the story-relevant part).
    Quote:
    We've introduced a whole new overworld map that you move around on, and you choose
    which levels to enter. And in fact, you can fight enemies on the [overworld] map, and
    you can chase down the books of [Skylanders] Academy
    that has been attacked at the beginning.

    So you're really trying to fix Skylands, you're trying to explore the map and gather enough forces together to stop Kaos. Because as his imagination is developing, he's creating more and more dangerous villains for you to fight, these Doomlanders.


    And in addition, we have non-combat gameplay, we have a new version of a card game called Creation Clash, and tons of surprising bosses, and often Mexican food figures into it. Fans will understand.

    (...)

    Each, for example, Sensei not only is an awesome Skylander with these super Sky-Chi power moves, but they also provide creation options for your Imaginators, Secret Techniques and increased level cap. And each of the Senseis also opens up a new area, which we call an Elemental Realm, that all of your characters can explore.

    Not sure if I should put a spoiler tag on the "tons of surprising bosses" part.

    Either way, Doomlanders (and Kaos) are not the only bosses!

    Taking this out of GD as usual. FGTV got some news!



    Quote:
    “Barbella was the best fitness trainer in all of Skylands. Not only did she possess otherworldly strength, she was also a firm believer that a healthy diet and exercise led to true happiness. With such a positive message to spread, Barbella decided to open her own fitness center called “Flex-a-lot”, where she hoped to instill good eating and workout habits with all of her patrons.

    But one day, the gelatinous villain known as the Gulper destroyed her gym, and it took all of Barbella’s strength to keep it from collapsing while everyone fled to safety. It was then that Barbella realized that bad guys were more hazardous to your health than anything else, so she began to train in the ways of the Sentinel, where she quickly became one of the greatest masters in the world!”


    Quote:
    Tae Kwon Crow was once the leader of a villainous band of air pirates in Skyhighlands. But pirating was never his true passion. All that really mattered to him was stopping anyone that “dared” to do anything that he deemed out of character. If a cake maker “dared” to make a pie instead, he would put a stop to it. If an ordinary sheep “dared” to baaahh longer than normal, he would end that nonsense right then and there.

    Tae Kwon Crow could not even stand it when anyone even “dared” of thinking of daring to do anything. But after he was captured by the Trap Masters, Master Eon dared him to change his ways and use his abilities for good instead. At first, Tae Kwon Crow was angry that Eon would dare make such a bold suggestion, but he soon realized that he could actually serve as a role model to young Ninjas and help them avoid the dark path that he went down. Forsaking his katana for the more traditional roundhouse fire-kick, Tae Kwon Crow now defends Skylands from whoever dares threaten it.


    Edit: Bird boy's turn!

    Before he began training Brawlers, Air Strike trained birds – especially the rare Blue Zephyr Falcons. They were once one of Skylands’ most endangered species, but Air Strike taught them how to defend themselves from predators… and not fly into windows. Birds would come from all over Skylands to learn his proven techniques. But despite their new defensive skills, the Blue Zephyr Falcons continued to be hunted by a band of evil trolls, who liked to use their eggs in blue-bacon omelets. So it was time for Air Strike to strikeback! He journeyed to the peak of the Zephyr Mountain and single handedly took down the trolls, rescuing the stolen eggs. After returning them to their mother, one of the eggs hatched, revealing a very energetic Falcon that would not leave his side. Air Strike named him “Birdie” – and together, they now use their skills to train Skylanders, despite Master Eon’s crippling fear of falcons.


    I've never seen that render before and the backstory doesn't turn up anything on google,so legit?

    Pit Boss

    Quote:
    Pit Boss was a member of a powerful order of snake philosophers that lived high up in the Great Twisty Mountains. Travelers would come from miles around and make the treacherous climb just to seek out the snakes’ wisdom. Each visitor was permitted to ask one question, but Pit Boss became alarmed when the same question was asked by several different people – how to deal with the growing threat of Kaos! With such a great concern, Pit Boss knew that it was time for action, not words. He left the Order of the Snake in search of this threat, and soon it was clear that Kaos was worse than Pit Boss had imagined. Knowing he could not stop Kaos on his own, Pit Boss joined the Skylanders, and due to his great wisdom and mystical powers, Master Eon enlisted him into the Sensei program as a Sorcerer Master.


    Enjoy!

    Legendaries

    Quote: dark52
    Toys R Us have posted the first of their new exclusive Legendary Skylanders for Skylanders Imaginators and it's a Legendary Tri-Tip.

    [User Posted Image][User Posted Image]

    Sporting a new red and gold colour scheme compared to the blue and gold Legendaries of the previous games, Legendary Tri-Tip will be released at launch. His regular edition is part of Wave 2 which is expected to also be released at or near to launch but perhaps in more limited quantities or only at specific stores to begin with.

    Another new look Legendary being produced for Imaginators is Legendary Pit Boss, an Undead Sorcerer. He was accidentally revealed by the official website earlier in the week when they unveiled his regular edition.

    [User Posted Image]

    It is not yet known when this guy will be released.


    Thanks to preciousawaken for spotting the Tri-Tip listing.


    Steel Plated

    Quote: dark52
    Continuing the rather odd looking line of variants that started with Smash Hit last year is Steel Plated Hood Sickle for Skylanders Imaginators.

    [User Posted Image]

    Previously seen referenced to by text listings this is our first proper look at the variant that, according to the box, will once again be exclusive to Best Buy. Best Buy have yet to post it (or any other figures) themselves but if the European listings are any indication then it should be available at launch (which is less than a month away!).

    Thanks to Buuzer for spotting it on Amazon.it.

    Simple said, I was able to pre-order Skylanders Imaginators a day ago, and as soon as I could I did, this afternoon I come home to find the package already delivered and this would answer everyone's question, "who is missing?". GG retailers.

    3D print your own figure

    Quote: dark52
    The official unveiling of the Skylanders Creator app has today revealed that along with being able to create Imaginators within the app it will also let you order a playable 3D print of your Imaginator (for $50, quantities limited), a playable card with a picture of your Imaginator on ($15) or even a T-shirt with your Imaginator on it ($25, not playable).

    [User Posted Image]

    The app (which launches today) will let you create an Imaginator from scratch or import one from the game by sound once the game is released in a couple of weeks. It is only possible to transfer to the app and not the other way around, the only way to use an Imaginator created in the app in the game is to buy the card or figure of it (or to meticulously recreate it in the game by hand). Getting more parts to use will require you to open daily chests but parts used in Imaginators transferred from the game will unlock automatically. FamilyGamerTV have an interview with Paul Reiche explaining it all.

    The list of devices that are supported by the app according to the official website are: iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone SE, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4s, iPod touch 5th Gen, iPad Pro 12.9in, iPad Pro 9.7in, iPad Air 2, iPad 4th Gen, iPad 3rd Gen, iPad 2, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 1st Gen. Samsung Note III, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, Samsung Nexus, ASUS Nexus 7.

    They will also be running a global contest to win a custom 3D-printed Imaginator, to enter you'll just need to share your design on social media using the #CreatorContest tag from October 24th.

    [User Posted Image]

    And to get a taste of creating your own character there is a Character Creator on the official website that you can experiment with. There's currently only the Bazooker class, a small number of parts and no colour options so it is a little more limited than the app or game will be.

    Switch to Switch

    Quote: dark52
    As part of Nintendo's Switch presentation today it was very briefly revealed that there will be a version of Skylanders Imaginators for the new system. The game will be released at launch on the 3rd of March and will feature a "digital library" of characters so that you can play without the Portal of Power.

    [User Posted Image]

    They have also revealed that Wild Storm will be part of a brand new level pack called the Cursed Tiki Temple where you can "unlock more than 100 new offerings" whatever that means. The pack will contain Wild Storm, a Life Crystal, and an Imaginite Mystery Chest. It'll be released on March 12th for $30.

    And don't forget that Mystical Tae Kwon Crow is due to be released exclusively at GameStop on Saturday.
