This Sunday, May 18th an all new Skylander will be available exclusively at Toys R Us. The soccer ball headed hero Kickoff Countdown is the newest character to join in the battle against Kaos. The figure will be available exclusively at Toys R Us the first week, with wide availability after that. His bio is below and a picture is at the bottom of the post.
Originally, Kickoff Countdown was discovered by a group of Yetis who were snowboarding one particularly chilly morning when they came across a big bomb encased in ice. After bringing it back to their cabin, they were shocked when it actually came to life. No one, not even Countdown himself, has any memory of where he came from or how he ended up frozen in the mountains. Since becoming a Skylander, Master Eon has been graciously trying to help piece together fragments of his past. But this has proven difficult, as Countdown loses some of his memory every time he explodes – which happens a lot!
