Toys”R”Us Brings New Wave of Activision’s Skylanders Spryo’s Adventure Figures in March
February 12, 2012

WAYNE, NJ (February 10, 2012) – The cast of Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure is expanding at Toys“R”Us locations nationwide and online at Toysrus.com with the release of three brand new items introduced exclusively. This spring, gamers visiting The World’s Greatest Toy Store® will discover a Legendary version of fan-favorite Trigger Happy, the new Dragon’s Peak adventure set and a translucent blue version of the popular dragon Bash. Additionally, enthusiasts will be excited to learn that the highly sought-after Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Legendary 3-pack is making a return to Toys“R”Us stores and Toysrus.com in mid-February.

Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure was released by Activision last fall, featuring more than 30 different characters that come to life within a video game world. Players take on the role of a “Portal Master,” placing action figures on a device called the “Portal of Power®” to transport them into the Skylands.

“Gamers have been enthralled with bringing their action figures to life with Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, and now, months after its launch, they are still clamoring to find every Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure character to add to their collection,” said Troy Peterson, Divisional Merchandise Manager, Electronics and Entertainment, Toys“R”Us, U.S. “To ensure that ‘Portal Masters’ have access to the most unique characters and worlds within the Skylands, Toys“R”Us will continue to introduce exclusive items from this exciting virtual world throughout the year.”

Upcoming, new Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure action figures and playsets that will be introduced exclusively at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com include:

Legendary Trigger Happy

Along with the same abilities as the original Trigger Happy, this Legendary version of the fan-favorite “goldslinger” features more power. Able to discharge a barrage of gold coins at his enemies using his dual blasters, Trigger Happy can also hurl pots of gold and golden safes, and gain a variety of other power upgrades. Legendary Trigger Happy will be available at Toys“R”Us stores around the world beginning in March.

Dragon’s Peak Adventure Pack

Featuring a new Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure character, Sunburn, this Adventure Pack offers players access to a brand new area of the Skylands – Dragon’s Peak. Additionally, new included magic items, Sparx Dragonfly and Winged Boots, offer new ways to help characters on their quests through Skylands. The Dragon’s Peak Adventure Pack will be introduced exclusively for a limited time at Toys“R”Us in March.

 

Translucent Blue Bash

This brand new version of Bash, the dragon who can curl into a powerful rolling ball, features a translucent blue deco that was selected by fans of Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure. Bash uses his spiky tail to slam and strike his opponents away using a 360 degree tailspin. He can also summon rocks from the ground to scramble his enemies and possesses additional powers, as well. Translucent Blue Bash will be available exclusively for a limited time at Toys“R”Us locations across North America beginning Sunday, April 8.

And, back by popular demand, the following item will return to Toys“R”Us stores and online at Toysrus.com later this month:

 

Legendary 3-Pack

This trio of fan-favorite characters features Spyro, Bash and Chop Chop in their Legendary forms. Highlighted by gold and dark blue deco, each Legendary character is more powerful than the traditional version. The Legendary 3-pack will return to Toys“R”Us stores nationwide for a limited time beginning February 17.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
