    TOY STATS
  • Spyro
  • Element: Magic
    Primary Attack: Fire Breath
    Secondary Attack: Horn Charge
    Upgrades include: Flight, Spread Fire, Aerial Head Bash

    Bio: Spyro hails from a rare line of magical purple dragons that come from a faraway land few have ever traveled. He has been on many exciting adventures, and has a remarkable knowledge of the different lands he protects, more so than any other Skylander.

    A strong-willed dragon who is young at heart, Spyro is fearless and brave. A true hero dedicated to defending his world from all things evil.


  • Trigger Happy
  • Element: Tech
    Primary Attack: Gold Coin Shooters
    Secondary Attack: Safe Cracker Bomb
    Upgrades include: Pot-of-Gold Bomb, Super Charged Gold Blasters, Gold Nugget Slinger

    Bio: Trigger Happy is more than his name, it's his solution to every problem. Nobody knows from where he came. He just showed up one day blasting gold coins everywhere with his custom-crafted shooters.

    Now everyone throughout the lands knows of this crazy goldslinger that will take down any bad guy… usually without bothering to aim.


  • Eruptor
  • Element: Fire
    Primary Attack: Lava Lob
    Secondary Attack: Eruption
    Upgrades include: Magma Bombs, Volcanic Eruption, Lava Flow

    Bio: Eruptor is a force of nature, hailing from a species that lived deep in the underground until a volcano launched their entire civilization onto the crust. He's a hot head with a strong dislike for anything evil, so whenever something bad threatens his world, he quickly erupts… quite literally.

    To help control his temper, he likes to relax in lava pools, particularly because there are no crowds.


  • Ignitor
  • Element: Fire
    Primary Attack: Flaming Sword
    Secondary Attack: Fire Spirit
    Upgrades include: Blue Flame Fury, Fire Flourish, Armor Leap

    Bio: On his first quest as a knight, Ignitor was tricked by a cunning witch into wearing a magical suit of armor that he was told would resist fire from a dragon. As it turned out, it was made of cursed steel. He journeyed to a dragon's lair where a single blast of fire transformed him into a blazing spirit, binding him to the suit of armor for eternity.

    Despite this setback, Ignitor remains a spirited knight who is always fired up to protect the lands from evil and find the witch that tricked him.


  • Gill Grunt
  • Element: Water
    Primary Attack: Harpoon Gun
    Secondary Attack: Water Cannon
    Upgrades include: Triple Harpoon Shot, Water Jet Pack, Water Launcher

    Bio: For many years Gill Grunt peacefully lived deep in the oceans until a nasty band of pirates kidnapped his Mermaid girlfriend. He then took to land and sea to search for her, eventually joining the Skylanders to help defend the world from every kind of foe… but especially pirates.

    Gill Grunt is one fish that never lets evil off the hook.

@Lila-the-dragon: The aspects of gameplay have not been talked about very much in the article. They mentioned about collecting gold, getting weapons, and leveling up as of now. We shall soon have more info around next week.

By the way, please do not double post in the topic. Instead, you can edit the previous post and add that comment from the second post you made.

SpyroFanatic101Me myself hope there will be more games with dragons then spyro. And seeing that there are little to no dragon games out if there were to be a good well rounded game out it would sell pretty nicely just due that its new and original aproach.


I knew it my own words, i knew they had something up their sleeves

Even though Spyro looks odd, I'm still gonna buy this game. If I can get used to how he looks in the LOS games, then it will be the same here. :/

I rather like goblin Spyro. He's a fun mix of classic and LoS while also being completely his own. I hope his attitude matches that face. smilie

@Razz: Very good point. XD At first, I thought "Wha?" when I saw the image, but after hearing your comment, and that the game is supposed to be targeted for ages 6-12, I'd say - eh, I like it anyway.

Am I the only one who's a little bothered by the fact they advertise it as " OVER 30 CHARACTERS!", when the total is just 31? It's just like Clock Tower 2, advertising "OVER 12 ENDINGS", and the total is 13 (That you can get all of in two play through *SHOT!*), if it's just 31, why put it as "OVER 30!"? You can just say " 31 characters", or lower the number to, like "OVER 20 CHARACTERS!"

((LOLZ! Nitpick? Maybe smilie ))

I don't know if anyone else has already posted this, but here's a video I found on Youtube which is slightly the same information that everybody's talking about as well as some information I haven't seen posted on this site. Anyways, here it is. All credit goes to the person who created it.

@SpyroGamer2008: After checking that video, I don't think the artwork shown in the video seems to be official enough - compared to the info from USAToday that Aura found along with the actual image. As far as I heard from the topics within darkSpyro, those are fan art. Hmm...

Activision hiring Hollywood talent to make this game. . . meh. . . I always found it to be exasperating when video game companies do this. "Hollywood talent, then it must be good! smilie " smilie yeah. . . look at LOS. . . that didn't turn out too well. Still it would be something to have experience two serendipitous pieces of media for this year for me, one of them being My Little Pony, which was really, really serendipitous, and if this game comes out this fall hopefully Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure will be too. . .

For now, I'm going to remain pessimistic about this until I try, and see it for myself.

Well, I wasn't sure. But the 3-D models seem to be official (in my opinion). They're on the website linked in the video.

@SpyroGamer2008: Quite understandable. At least you tried contributing what you thought it was. I would like for you to research a bit more though in order to get some clarification, since we now know the actual info about the latest Spyro game.

So? Its spyro, and if you are a diehard Spyro fan, you won't worry about how it looks. He doesn't look half bad, like DotD, ill get used to him. I hope cynder is one of those playable characters.

We gave the last three series a chance and got nothing out of it (at least most of us)why should we bother now.

@SpyroFanatic101: I find that you are judging this game way too early based on your recent posts in terms of the information it was provided, and your assumptions. Don't knock it until you try it, and wait for more info to come.

Statement of the century right here...

No wonder Acti kept the game under the radar, they knew THIS would happen.

I'm sorry I slammed acti, I never expected all hell to break loose over a screenshot and a little news article.
