One of my favorite things that the Skylanders franchise has done over the years is the release of special figures commemorating different holidays. Skylanders Trap Team continues that tradition with three special Easter releases: Eggsellent Weeruptor, Power Punch Jet-Vac and a Bunny Earth Trap. Each figure is available separately in an egg shaped packaged.
Also available now is the first Skylanders Crayola product – the Color Alive! Starter pack. The packs, available now, allow kids to bring coloring to life on tablets or smartphones through Crayola’s new Color Alive! 4D Experience augmented reality technology. The limited edition packaging features unique black and white line art of Skylanders characters for Portal Masters to color using Crayola’s Crayons included in the Starter Pack.
Below are bios and images of the special Easter Skylanders figures – you can find them in stores now.
Eggsellent Weeruptor: Weeruptor was chosen as this year’s official mascot for the Annual Dragon Egg Hunt! Being new to this time honored tradition, he disguised himself as a candy-coated egg and proceeded to capture Spyro, Cynder, and Drobot within a Traptanium basket… sort of missing the point of the occasion. But what he lacks in point-getting, he more than makes up for in “Eggsellence!”
Power Punch Jet – Vac: Jet-Vac was the greatest, most daring flying ace in all of Windham. He was given his magical wings when he was young, as was the tradition for all Air Barons. But when his homeland was raided, he chose to sacrifice his wings to a young mother so she could fly her children to safety. This act of nobility caught the attention of Master Eon, who sought out the young Air Baron and presented him with a gift – a powerful vacuum device that would allow him to soar through the skies once again. Jet-Vac accepted the gift with gratitude, and now daringly fights evil alongside the other Skylanders.
Bunny Earth Trap:The Bunny Earth Trap is one of the most unique Traps of the bunch and features a cute bunny-themed design.
