That’s the date A New Beginning was released. Technically the date also belongs to everyone else introduced in that game, but Cynder gets special treatment because she’s a fan favorite, and her legacy lived on in Skylanders.

Thanks. No tears were shed fortunately, as today I realized there's actually a lot of content I haven't yet explored. So I impulse bought the 3DS versions of Swap Force and Trap Team, just because I've never tried them before.

The 3DS of SF is actually damn good, but TT's left me a little underwhelmed, but it's still very fine. Hope you enjoy them!

The community goes around in circles when choosing what topics to discuss. I’m a little worn out of seeing the same conversations. I probably asking for too much, considering the franchise is pretty much done.

I'm actually going back to recollecting figures for my collection right now. And I'm a bit conflicted about the Power Blue Figures. On one hand, as a completionist I wanna grab them. On another, they were part of the promotion for Autism Speaks, which I have learned how horrible they are. But on a third hand, I would be getting these 2nd hand at this point, even if I go out of my way to find someone selling them sealed.

I wouldn’t buy them because of what they represent. Yeah, you’re not going to be giving money to Autism Speaks, but to me the figures are always going to be attached to their ideals.

I'd love to do some videos for Skylanders. I'm just not tech-savvy in the slightest. You can tell because I use the word tech-savvy. I also don't like hearing my own voice lmao. If you've ever watched Subjectively, that's probably what I'd be aiming for.

Yeah, definitely need to go to my corner. Group chats are distracting, anyway.

I'm very excited to play Swap Force and Trap Team for the 3DS. Hopefully that'd satisfy me for a little while. I know they aren't very long, but I haven't played a Skylanders game since 2016, so anything will do. I wonder why I'm so attached to this series. Nothing else keeps me coming back.

I'm sure they will! SF has probably the best levels in the 3DS line up, to be honest. The land of the dead levels especially are amazing.

I feel like the attachment really soured the series’ potiential. Spyro fans wanted a Spyro game, and Skylanders simply does not play as such. Like, even if the redesign was faithful, he would still be in a Skylanders game, which aren’t exactly seen in a good light.

i'm with hihd on this one. the franchise wouldn't exist as it is without spyro.

that being said, i think it could have explored some more unique ideas if it wasn't attached to the spyro license. however, without spyro, i think some of the design ethos an characters would have changed.

That’s fair! I’ve just been imagining a world where instead of being known as those expensive baby games that ruined Spyro, the series could simply be those expensive baby games.

This is kind of an interesting proposition. Although I think Skylanders would've been successful out of the gate with the toys-to-life gimmick, I think having Spyro as name recognition definitely helped. However, Spyro not being in Skylanders would've allowed Skylanders to exist as its own thing without the "weird redesign/that weird thing Spyro was in" perception that Skylanders always had to me.

What always struck me as odd was the fact that Skylanders never really did anything with Spyro's platforming legacy. You have Spyro, a platformer mascot, and you put him in a Diablo-lite game? They added jumping later, but still.

As much as I feel like Spyro is dead weight that’s given Skylanders a really bad reputation, if Skylanders 7 were to happen, I wouldn’t want to see him go. That would mean a victory for all the insufferable Spyro fans out there and all the established lore would go out the window.

I’ve noticed a trend among Stink Bomb fans. We love giving him a tragic backstory lmao. It’s odd because he’s essentially just a joke character. I didn’t think anyone else would think of him beyond that, but I’ve been proven wrong. It’s like, hehe funny skunk go poot. Oh, and also he has depression.

this


it would have been pretty cool if they'd done that. especially because they hinted at his other capabilities in his character bio. utilizing his other elements in his default move-set would have been neat. i also think they could have given dark spyro/spry/variants unique attacks while letting the normal figure have the same move-set we know today.

So, uh, what's all this? Unsure where the original source is. I've seen it reposted by multiple people. I don't think anything here automatically means a new game, but it is nice to see they're interested in the possibility. Also, Skylanders Easter Eggs? As in plural? I thought there was just one.

seems like it's in response to the 9th anniversary video cookieeater posted previously on this topic.

this is my first time seeing the screenshot. if it's true, the response is really quite sweet.

huh. maybe there are more easter eggs? iat is fairly new, so i wouldn't be surprised if there are things that haven't been discovered. they could also be including the spyro ones when they say "skylanders". or, crash himself could be an easter egg, seeing as he appeared in skylanders (although that's a bit of a stretch).

I don’t think there’s enough nostalgia for a new main series game to happen so soon. I’ve seen people saying 2021 and 2022. Doesn’t sound right to me. We barely even have a fandom. The demand just isn’t that high.

Yeah, I can't see Activision touching Skylanders until at least 2031. They waited for the 20 year anniversaries of Crash and Spyro to revive them, so I'd expect the same for Skylanders.

Activision brought back Guitar Hero too early, and look what that got them.

Okay, one last thing before I drop this subject. I don't want to rain on anyone's parade too much. What makes people think Skylanders will get special treatment? Why 2021 or 2022? Consider how long Classic Spyro and Crash took to return, how long those fans had to clamor. So, no, #BringBackTheSkylands, it most certainly is not about time.

All in exchange for the worst and most vapid story beats of the franchise. I sincerely think Imaginators is terrible in comparison to its predecessors.

The fanbase is not huge by any means, at least by looking at the different hubs online. Reddit has the biggest community, and even then the numbers aren’t exactly breathtaking. It’s an outright lie to say the fanbase is massive, like I’ve seen in comments by diehard fans on Twitter. I’d love to be proven wrong, though.

One last thing. #BringBacktheSkylands, I don't think spamming developers, companies, and completely irrelevant conversations is helping. Cartoon Twitter is absolutely on it when it comes to this, and they usually choose a specific time to start promoting. They're organized.
