I think their might be because Toys for Bob is leading development instead of Vicarious Visions, and the "Traptanium Weapons" gimmick will be able to carry over into sidekick form better than the "swapping" one. I also hope they can DO something smilie.

Even when people try to have good grammar, they still fail lol.

Ontopic: I would love to see a Jet-Vac, and Boomer sidekick. Boomer's sidekick could be called Banger lol.

Not a good pic. Not sure if you guys noticed but there are a ton of core guys that initially looked like sidekicks. I doubt this is one.

Did the sidekicks even DO anything?

They would have been better as a spin-off game or something!

It is definitely a sidekick. One can see how small it is compared to the base and the other skylanders in the trailer.

I just want the current ones to do something useful. Maybe they can make them able to unlock elemental gates or attack and do minor damage.

Serious answer: Canser

Seriously tough, why does everyone think it's a magic base?

Because it looks like one. It's even better visible if you see it in the whole trailer.

Well sidekicks from both SSA and Giants were never made available to Africa . Regardless if any are made it wont matter to us living here.

I agree if they make more sidekicks let them at least do something useful like a magic item . Make them separate skylander toys without upgrade paths and low damage to make life interesting for advanced Portal Masters .

Hey Skylander your health is low and we have a chainsaw

Dude, there's not much profit to be made in Africa. And Activision loves profit.

Go figure.

I still think that 'mini Spyro' is just a bit of perspective. That being said, I dunno WHAT it is...it does really look like Spyro. lol how about "Spyrunt"?

I hope we don't get any Sidekicks unless they can change what they do. Going on 4 games and no one ever said "oh, how about we make them give a boost to characters?" or something?

I meant, Swap Force gave them the most benefit and that was literally to get one star for our Portal Master Rank....

The tell tale sign that it's not Magic is the way the base is shaped. If it was magic, it'd be fully round, but you can see the indent where the "jaws" of the skull are on the base.

Same... It's a magic skylanders and 100% sure that it's a sidekick... He's more little and he has big eyes! He really looks like a Sidekick!

And that's the reason why they will be around.

Freaks like this person will buy the chips to get them (said in jest)

If fans are saying "more please" it's hard to fault a company for providing a few more.

If they keep putting forth the effort to code them into the game, why can't they make it so they actually DO something other than be annoying and take up the magical item spot.

*Ahem* People are entitled to like Sidekicks.

Still, I got Terrabite, and I never use him. I wish he did more than just run around like most people do.

Would be an interesting idea if they affected that character's attacks.

Like.. Trigger Snappy could shoot a small third coin when Trigger Happy attacks with the pistols.

Barkley could shoot out a small beam when Tree Rex shoots the Chlorophyll Cannon.

Mini Jini could go into a small bottle and shoot out small bottle rockets when Ninjini goes into her bottle.

Thumpling could dive alongside Thumpback.


They can't gain experience, but they can collect gold that adds to the main character's total.
