An update: There were 2 new characters. Not one, but 2. They were pulled from the booth, sadly enough.

They wouldn't allow Pics of the display because they don't want to reveal anything g about the next installment, but there was nothing we haven't already seen on the display. It was fu of pre-swap force figs that we've all seen. The new packaging was off to the side, and only the lion fix was there. The other new fig looks like a cross between Gil grunt and punk shock.

I can tell you that there are going to be "racers" for the figs in the new tubular packaging that MB seems to like. And they are making a hybrid of the spinners and original battle portals. They will have the rip cord with the ball bearings on the bottom. There will also be a flame slinger role play bow and arrow.

In general MB news, they now have the Spongebob license, assassin's creed license, and the rights to make vehicles from all NYC service departments (they are starting with NYPD, but I'm waiting for the Dept of Sanitation set!!!). They are also making the Scarab from Halo 3 for the collectors series, which is HUGE when compared to there other collectors series offerings (forward unto dawn and mammoth). They are also making a build-able, remote controlled Mantis from Halo 4.

Hmm, a set with Rip Tide. Cool.


Overall, it sounds disappointing, except for the lion-dude.

I ordered Flynn's Rescue Ship used on Amazon for $42...It was considered "Very Good"...which according to the definition on amazon means it should include all the pieces...Still worried, though. Anyone have success with used on amazon? Gonna rage so hard if Hot Head doesn't light up. Ha ha.

Hmmm, so no new figs apart from the Lion and water guy? Not even from Swap Force or any of the earlier games? Very dissappointing.

Everytime I've gotten something 'used' off of Amazon it's been pretty much brand new-in-box. Sometimes they list it as used when the packaging is slightly bent or if water was spilt on the box. Silly stuff that don't affect the actual contents. Is the seller Amazon itself? If so, then it should be fine. If not, than I'm not sure.

Looks like ToyWiz managed to sneak a picture of some of the new sets. There's some interesting new stuff in this image!
Note the Skylanders on karts in the top right! Might be a reference to the Skylanders Karting game rumor?

Also, there's Prism Break again. C'mon guys, I've been waiting for ages! Send me one for making these topics or something. smilie

OK, so there's our Golden Lion, The Unused Undead Giant an Amoured Loki/Nordic-esic character, and a Blue dinsoaur/reptilian creature. Also if you look image with the Blue guy , on the opposite side next to the vflag, you see a weird little creature. And another thing, BELOW the image of the blue creature you see new weapon toys, one of which is called "Ranger Bow and Arrow" which seems to be the Blue Guy's weapons, could this be his name?

Edit: Look at the picture with the cars, you see something called Skylanders Ranger Vehicles. Is this the new game? If it is, I doubt it's a JUST racing game, probably more of a typical Skylanders game with racing areas, similar to Giants Areas.

Kinda strange seeing the new characters as Mega Bloks first. They might as well have revealed them beforehand.

Looks like the next games going to be called Skylanders Rangers. Generally a ranger is someone who's multi talented so perhaps we will be swing Skylanders that can accept weapons and vehicles. What I wonder is how these will be packaged.

Random observation: I think that bronzed hammer guy might be tech
The show photo shows a tech plate right behind Spyro. There is also an air plate on the "billboard" that comes with the set.
[User Posted Image]
That orangey brown plate is unmistakably round with an open center, the earth logo would have noticeably more white with only slivers of empty space inside.
Now look at this:
[User Posted Image]
Earth plate is there (and mirrored), but Terrafin is in this set too. There is no air plate to be found.
If we look at similar "minifigs + small bricks" sets in the past like the legendary and champion packs, they both had an element plate for all of the characters included. However, the Target set (which had 4 figures) didn't include any. But this one does, shown on the press photo. Going on past trends, plates seem to be "all or nothing"

The tech plate might belong to the new guy, Countdown, Drobot, or Trigger Happy or it could also just be a random part dug out of a bin thrown in because it's "close enough" in color to earth.

But it's something to think about ~

So this happened.

Mattel acquires toy brand Mega Bloks for $460 million

Quote:
Mattel Inc., the world’s largest toymaker, agreed to buy Mega Brands Inc. for $460 million, acquiring the biggest challenger to Lego A/S in the construction-toy market.

Mattel is offering C$17.75 ($16) a share, according to a statement today, a 36 percent premium over yesterday’s closing price. The board of Montreal-based Mega Brands unanimously approved the transaction, and investors holding 39 percent of the stock, including Chief Executive Officer Marc Bertrand and Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. (FFH), agreed to the deal.

The purchase of Mega Brands, the world’s second-largest maker of snap-together blocks, will fill a product hole for Mattel. It doesn’t have its own construction line, locking it out of a $4 billion market in the U.S. and Europe. The category also is a bright spot in a toy industry that has seen growth stall in the U.S.

Mattel considered starting its own construction line, then opted instead to buy Mega Brands because it would be faster and less risky, Mattel CEO Bryan G. Stockton said on a call with reporters. Mattel got its first taste of construction in 2012 when it debuted blocks for its Barbie brand through a licensing deal with Mega Brands. Mattel realized that replicating this kind of expertise would take years, Stockton said.
