It is Activision, after all. Take however many games you think it will take to completely burn out the idea. A point where even the most dedicated fan says "Ok, this is too many figures, I'm done". A point where we have variants coming out of our ears and the news of a "store exclusive" generates not excitement, but everyone groaning "AGAIN?" or simply ignoring it.

Then add two more games to that total and that's when Activision ends it.

I think the Swap Force success has guaranteed us at least three more full games. So, of course there will be a 4. And if they have a new idea as cool as Swapping then bring it on.

I think it would be cool if they made a skylanders game where they make the predator of each skylander.
Skylanders predators.

Skylanders isn't the type of game that would do well as an online multiplayer game. In it's current form it's too linear and is barely complex enough for 2 people let alone more than that. Players being tethered together would be a huge issue and even if they fixed that and let each online person go their own route there's potentially nothing for them to do if people get far enough ahead of them. Again, the whole game would need to be reworked and at that point it might become too complex for it's target audience (kids).

Don't get me wrong, I love Swap Force but what want to see is that they keep what ideas they have from all games and make the best "game" they can for Skylanders 4. Give us new core landers, giants and swappers so don't worry about the gimmick as much. Online multiplayer, online battles, longer story. I think that would mean the most to longer time players.

*Sigh* Problems on Wii and a few minors bugs won't stop them from creating more games.


I didn't say they won't make it. But whether they get people to buy it will be a new problem for them. Interesting comments on the Activision forum.

Yeah great then we get a re-boot...no thank you sir.

I'm still thinking some kind of weapon of vehicle gimmick is next. Now that they've played around with magnets, there's no putting that Ninjini back in the bottle. I would also like to see them add moving joints to the head, arms and legs and have them detach from the base so they really can be action figures.

I disagree with both of you, how about no reposes at all? Series +1 Figures as a whole gimmick is a ridiculous idea that is not only draining your money, but is also not even near worth it. I hate the fact that you have to buy the same figure AGAIN for $10 more, just for one new ability that's exclusive and a side mission (which is exactly the same as in the first game). Not much of an improvement and is way overpriced.

They should stop making more reposed figures and instead, just the give the wow pows to the original figures you already own without having to buy another. Not only would it do your wallet, piggy bank, and bank account a favor; but its not gonna Hurt Activision either. Even without reposes, they can still make a lot of money and it would make parents feel more comfortable about buying their kids the game itself. Soon, Parents will get mad and stop buying Skylanders for their kids, its just eating up more of their money.

It may seem alright for now, but in the future you will have lost over $1,000 on Skylanders figures if you continue to be scammed by Activision; that's the point of the game anyway. I don't know everything or even near everything but I'm sure: Unless you're a millionaire, we will all grow tired of Skylanders one day if Activision keeps this up.



You don't have to buy the reposes! And if you missed a character in their first run, you have another chance to purchase them


actually ya do, if ya wont the new abilaties

Figures are made and return as series 1,2,3 etc because they want ppl who join the game to find the figures they need. Also keep in mind most parents buy their kids single packs or 1-2 triple packs. They are not like us buying everything. So ppl playing since SSA may not even have a prism break yet or a chop chop. So i think returning figures are fine, skip them if you don't want them, no one is FORCING you to buy them.


Also, hangover was such a good movie, hangover two was ok, the third I have yet to see.

Just bring back swimming please. And guys who you need fire to hurt, and let's do guys that get hurt by electricity. Prism Break Whirlwind and maybe a couple others breaking crystals, earth and guys with explosives and drill/crushing weapons taking out rocks. I love having utility in the Skylanders to get through levels. Put the thinking and strategy to get through levels back.

As far as new game's theme, maybe dual element Skylanders. You'd have to skip the elements they are weak/strong against. So you'd have 20 combinations:

Water - Earth (Newt or frog lander)
Water - Air (Frost Dragon)
Water - Undead (Pirahna lander)
Water - Tech
Water - Magic (Troll Ice Mage)
Fire - Earth (half if fire fits here)
Fire - Life (Fire Ant lander)
Fire - Undead (Ghost Rider)
Fire - Tech (Troll in mini-walker)
Fire - Magic (the other half of fire fits here)
Life - Magic (Holy Dragon)
Life - Air (Praying Mantis Lander)
Life - earth
Life - Tech (Chem Warfare lander)
Undead - Tech
Undead - Earth (Zombie Dragon)
Undead - Air (Man-bat lander)
Magic - Earth
Magic - Air
Air - Tech (Mini-copter lander)

Lots of stuff that could be done. This is a nice number of new figures as it brings the grand total of unique landers to 100! Your guess is a good as mine with some of the holes. Swappers can fill in for "dual" gates these guys can't cover, retaining the need for old figures. Giants should also have an area every 4th level or so.

How about a really long game with lots of levels that leverages ALL of the past & current figures & new portal and has NO NEW figures (and I mean NONE, NO NEW figures or anything plastic AT ALL!)

That way they can lay off our wallets for one complete cycle...

Skylanders Guardians. I would say Gods or Deities, but I don't want to cause religious controversies...

Since there are less or more than 200 Skylander characters, this makes one wonder about what they all have in common. They in their own group are comprised of 8 elements. The portal of power can only hold only 4 figures, so I'm thinking of creating 8 non-magnetic element Skylanders, each made of 4 pieces to make 1 character. Put all 4 pieces (Legs, Right Arm, Left Arm, Upper Body) onto the portal & you load a Skylander Guardian...

These 4 pieces of 1 Guardian can be mixed with the other 4 pieces of the other 7 Guardians, which makes numerous combinations of abilities...

Each piece is sold separately, like "Right Arm of Unnamed", "Legs of Unnamed", etc....

The downside of this idea is that since all 4 pieces of the Guardian fill the portal that can only hold 4 figures, only 1 player can control it. Besides, these Guardians are bigger than the Giants & are super-strong that it doesn't require 2 players to pass a Nightmare difficulty level...

An example of a Fire elemental Guardian would be, in my own vision, a Kaiser Dragon similar to the kind seen in either The Inheritance Cycle, Breath Of Fire series, or Dungeons & Dragons' Red Dragon...

As for the story of the 8 Guardians, they themselves in their own element, literally created all of Skylands that pre-date the time of the Giants...

It is Activision so I think Giants and Swap force could evolve like "Modern Warfare" and "Black Ops" did. I would not be surprised with the following:

Skylanders 4 = Giants 2
Skylanders 5 = Swap Force 2

I see a lot of similarities in the way Activision manages CoD and Skylanders franchises.

In addition Giants and Swap concepts both have remaining potential. Giants because there were only 8 of them and swap force because it is a very good idea !

I agree, from a gimmick stand point all they need to really do right now is expand.

They could literally call it Spyro's Adventure II, add 8 more Giants, 8 more Swappers, 16 more cores, and call it a day.

Anything beyond that - I'd modify the portal for gameplay purposes, maybe a larger focus on items that function as 'mods', not like the temporary stuff we have now, but consistent damage modifiers, health regens, higher jumping (access hidden places), character properties - like a chrome layer that reflects projectiles, etc.

skylanders: mecha force.

2 giant "mecha" skylanders for each element. they could fit any normal skylander. giants are mecha sized in game, swappers get... special advantages.

the plotline takes a pacific rim standing point. the enemies are just too big.

the enemies would consist of anything from arkeyan robots to the fire viper to deformed elementals and other things.

there would be online, leaderboards, local 4 player, ect.

and there would be blindbagged "nanos" that can get inside enemies to kill em'

Since it's here:

For me I'd do this:

Features

Bank:
Self explainitory, also can purchase upgrades, items etc with the stored money.

More moves:
Each new repose can buy 5 additional moves in addition to the stock ones but only 2 can be equipped at one time

Research Lab:
Basically, you can boost skylander stats and other things here using gold.
Examples are things like damage,(yes, you can increase base damage though cost wise, you'll have to work for it)gold gain rate, exp gain rate, etc.

Multi-battles:
These are battles which you and other AI skylanders fight at one time(you'd either "store" thier data into the system then select them when it comes up or you can also place and remove figures for selecting ones you want

New charm system:
Like SSA and Giants having heroic challenges, this game gives charm points whenever you add a new skylander to your collection. These charm points can be used to buy and upgrade charms in a shop. After certain milestones, you get charm slot tokens, which is used to get rarer , better, charms and other things. These tokens refresh daily(like the signpost in SF).
