Interesting video, Heyits. There was a Cynder Expansion Battle Arena. I wonder what this means. Also, I never seen that prototype of Warnado.

I'm either called Hotdog or HIHD, not "Heyits".


Anyway yeah Warnados old design looks pretty dumb, but I still like it. His official design is amazing though.

The Cynder thing shown is an early Necropolis. Since she has statues in Darklight Crypt, it might be first guess that she was in Ghost Roaster's place.

Vvvery minor, but I just rewatched this and noticed the Drow Archers at 0:54... Don't they look different in the final game? It looks like their model was originally an altered version of Hex's or Stealth Elf's. Man, I'm nostalgic for Giants now.
Bifrost Diamond Sparx Gems: 7820
#805 Posted: 16:46:20 21/10/2015
I'm always nostalgic for Giants,but I keep telling myself I'll marathon the games instead and never do it.

Those look like altered Drow Witch models. They actually remind me of the Cyclops figure on the previous page,especially the armor.

I did it this year... Well more like I played SA last December, then Giants a month later, then SF and TT like four months after that smilie It was because I didn't finish them on my Wii U more than anything, though. I liked Giants less after that, mbuuut off topic.

I KNEW there was some other character it looked closer to! I kept thinking it was some NPC, but I didn't think about the enemies.

I don't know if you noticed this, but I noticed good time ago some differences in the health bar in Trap Team between the demo and the final version. I can't find any videos right now, but I will post when I find.

First, the image in the health bar of the Skylander is not their artwork, it's another image of him (in case, it's snap Shot), like Swap Force.

Also, Trappable Villains used to have a health bar, not a time bar, and their health was big. Their music do not play when they enter the stage. In the demo, the Villain showed was Chompy Mage. The stage was Chapter 4.

Irategamer put up some interesting videos about the creative process behind a few toys.
Don't know if they were posted before, they are pretty old.

Dive-Clops:



Stealth Stinger:



Reef Ripper:



I prefer Dive-Clops final look but onestly still like his prototype look.
And that Water engine in the concept was much better than the ones we got.

Prototype Stealth Stinger's rotors were retained as and in-game mod.
I highly prefer its final look.

I love Reef Ripper as a figure but its older versions was still really cool (maybe too similar to Dive Bomber though).

That's awesome! I've always found the designing process really interesting and like seeing those prototypes. Also, I never realized Reef Ripper was supposed to be a sub. smilie

Also, minor but this has pictures of one of the models used for a Skylanders ad. I still don't understand why they made the sharks rocky instead of going with their classic designs, but eh, they still look cool.

Oooo weee, those CG Sharks and Skylanders look amazing. Love them every time I look them up on youtube. What is the upcoming show looked like that! The detail on the shark is amazing for something that appears for less then five seconds.


As for the art work, it's gorgeous. The artist is incredibly skilled with colors and lighting and it shows that in the VV Skylander games as well.

I wholeheartedly agree about the artwork. So painterly and colorful. Wish I knew more about the Ambush on Kung Fume Kingdom, though. Didn't notice it was on the blog until only a few seconds ago and now, after seeing that pugly flat-face there, this smile won't come off my face. Eh. Can't have everything, I guess. I'm just hoping the TV series and its character development will make me happy.

Something noteworthy is the inside of the Iron Fist of Arkus:

There's a bit more on that site, but it's just ingame GUI and screenshots that you could probably dig up from the game files if you wanted it.

Also, not directly related but still fun to see, since Alchemy was used for some of the Skylanders games IIRC.

Small detail but Karthik Bala refers to Cloud Kingdom as "Skylantis" at 3:58 in this video. Might be an old name for the level or just a debug name developpers used.

I was wondering, this thread was solely about prototype toys when it started, but now we use it to also post about other stuff like early character names, demo reel, visual assets, earlier demos of the games, etc.?

It's an alternate name they've been using since the game's announcement. Seems to be the city's name rather than the Kingdom as a whole.

Well those links gotta go somewhere they won't be forgotten at :U

This image comes from Kara Zisa's website listed a few posts above. I am not the only that doesn't see the name appear in the game when they announce The Darkness name before fighting him right? :/ Not sure if they forgot to have the name appear or if it's an intended design choice not to have it.

I always thought it was intentional.
Leaving only the speaking with no name appearing helps differentiating him from the other bosses in the game and I think it's also a bit more dramatic.

But now that I see how the name would have been written I think it would have still been unique enough for the final battle.

Thanks, I was wondering if it was a glitch or not. smilie

Hm. I don't see it. It's not on his page, in any case. Could be staring me right in the face, but all I see are concepts of a legged Magna Charge, some with robot-buddies. I think this post was shown off here already. These were a few prototypes featured last year at an art exhibit.
[User Posted Image]

These are the ones in Strata. You can see the robot-buddy I mentioned on the base. There's another set, but they all look pretty similar to the one we have today.

They still need a good vs evil game and introduce a villain line of figures. Sales would go through the roof. All of the TT villain top tier guys would sell sell sell.

Looks like the one in the back, close to the white figures, but without the wheel effects.

The prototype you got is really nice too,it shows the type by pose and not a giant base with a symbol. But I guess it could have issues standing up with certain tops since the magnets might make it heavier.

Yes, this is indeed one of the three Spitfires that randomly popped up in Mexico before Superchargers was revealed. I paid an extremely hefty price for it, but in my opinion, it was worth it.

He actually works as a normal Spitfire. No noticable changes in the actual sculpt except for the fact that the pupil indents are much deeper than on the official one.
