Great thread! Definitely a good way to keep track. Maybe it would be a good idea to make this a complete publication thread and include things like the calenders, for example. You did forget a couple books though.

I just got back from Walmart, and they had the new novel and book of elements out.

I scooped up both.

Incase people want to know the chapter breakdown for the first book in the Mask of Power Series, it goes like this -

1: The Stinky Swamp
2: The Daybringer Flame
3: Chompy Attack
4: The Swamp Monster
5: An Unlikely Ally
6: A Call For Help
7: The Desert Of Columns
8: Darkness Falls
9: The Eternal Archives
10: A Big Problem
11: Huge Appetites
12: Kaos To The Rescue
13: True Colors
14: The Book

The book runs 156 pages and does end on a kind of grim cliffhanger. It does have pictures like the first novel, and the cover shown above is not the cover for the book. So, if the covers for book 2 and 3 are the same as above, they won't be consistent with each other.

and its note worthy to say that the "Battle for Skylands" book is nothing more then a crappy version of the "Skylanders Official Annual 2013" book
the Annual has everything the other book has, and more.

The Fire and Water Book of Elements has a consistent look with the last book, right down to the side panel being exactly the same and flush with the last book. That will make it look good bookshelfed.

I kinda like the look of this cover over the old one. What I don't get is why Gill Grunt is on the cover and not Jet-Vac and/or drill Sergeant like on the 'prototype' cover.

I'm glad to hear that the Book of Elements series is consistent with one another. What about The Machine of Doom to The Mask of Power? Are they the same physical size?

So, we know that The Machine of Doom was a prequel to Spyro's Adventure, but where does The Mask of Power series fit in to the 'Skylanders Timeline'?

Is anyone else as excited as I am for Master Eon's Official Guide to Giants? I really enjoyed the first one for Spyro's Adventure.

Does anyone have the Universe code that comes in the 2013 Annual?

The story does focus on Drill Sergeant, Stealth Elf, and Jet-Vac is in there (I saw pics of him).

The new cover is consistent with the cover of the first novel, so here's hoping they do this with all novels. On the side panel of the book (trim?), it says number 1 at top, indicating it's the first of 3 books.

EDIT: Oh, and Walmart was selling the novel for 5.09, and the book of elements for 5.94 (or it could have been 5.49).

The story does focus on Drill Sergeant, Stealth Elf, and Jet-Vac is in there (I saw pics of him).

The new cover is consistent with the cover of the first novel, so here's hoping they do this with all novels. On the side panel of the book (trim?), it says number 1 at top, indicating it's the first of 3 books.

EDIT: Oh, and Walmart was selling the novel for 5.09, and the book of elements for 5.94 (or it could have been 5.49).


Good to hear. Consistency is a definite good thing. I hate when in the middle of a book series they 'change up' the look of the books. It kills me... lol

By the way, it is the first of AT LEAST 4 books! smilie

The Fire and Water Book of Elements has a consistent look with the last book, right down to the side panel being exactly the same and flush with the last book. That will make it look good bookshelfed.



Amazon has both of these books (or the same book with different covers) as being released in Jan. On different dates. Is it the same story or are they two different books. The characters on the cover are different. Anyone know why or whats going on. And if you got it already gamemaster, congrats.... Keep forgetting to look for books at walmart... they never pay attention to release dates....

^ The cover that you see online is basically the 'prototype cover'. The cover of GM's book is the official cover.

The release date for both is supposed to be in January, but like with many Skylander products, street dates often mean nothing.

@ Vortimous: The first listing is definitely the correct one. The one that matches the cover of GM's.


I found a few release dates on Barnes & Noble's website. Barnes & Noble is almost always right with the release date of books.

Book of Elements: Fire and Water and The Mask of Power: Spyro Versus the Mega Monsters comes out on January 10th, 2013. The correct cover for The Mask of Power: Spyro Versus the Mega Monsters is pictured.

Ultimate Sticker Collection: Skylanders comes out on June 3rd, 2013.

Skylanders Giants: Master Eon's Official Guide and Skylanders Universe Mad Libs comes out on June 27th, 2013.

Hello, one is the UK edition and the one from Walmart is the US edition. I believe they're exactly the same other than the cover and the UK comes with an activity at the back which (I think) isn't in the American one...

I kinda like the look of this cover over the old one. What I don't get is why Gill Grunt is on the cover and not Jet-Vac and/or drill Sergeant like on the 'prototype' cover.


The 'prototype' cover isn't actually a prototype cover. It's the UK one. Not sure why Gill's on the front. Perhaps he threatened to sing unless they put him on the US one?

Right, so I would like to think that the new Skylanders and Giants are in every book. If they are in all future releases and not in Magic & Tech, then that would be really really strange.

Double Trouble's official biography says he ate a rare lily that was said to multiply the power of any spell.

I'm not sure if it is common knowledge but Eons Official Guide for SSA is available in both paperback and hardback. I only found out yesterday and I didn't know if anyone else knew as I haven't seen it discussed.

Also the new concept art for Book of Elements Magic and Tech puts it in the Skylanders Universe line instead of SSA. This would be because all of the books going forward would be branded under Skylanders Universe but I haven't actually seen the Magic and Tech with the new branding in the wild. Has anyone else? Any pics?

I have the sticker book, Machine of Doom and the guide book. The stickers in the sticker book are good for putting on cases cause I decorated a boxy thing with the stickers and now I can carry them around in it! (And If I get another box thing I can make it for giants!)

Which Skylanders do you think will be the title characters for the next several Mask of Power books (they're going by the seven elements)? There is already Magic for Spyro, Lightning Rod for Air, and Gill Grunt for Water.

I think Cynder should be the title character for Undead, Stealth Elf for Life, Hot Dog for Fire, Terrafin for Earth, and Boomer for Tech.

No, it is definitely the UK cover. It has the Penguin symbol in the top left corner, just like the UK editions of The Mask of Power series.

I think:
Cynder = Undead book
Stealth Elf = Life book
Sunburn = Fire book
Dinorang = Earth book
Sprocket = Tech book

Oh and I got the annual for Christmas!
