Toys”R”Us® Brings New Wave of Activision’s Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure(TM) Exclusive Action Figures to “Portal Masters” Beginning in March
WAYNE, N.J., Feb. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — 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:
