  1. […] any Skylanders related news items that release today and eventually combining it all into our SWAP Force page later. Keep checking back throughout the day as I keep this post updated and you have anything you want […]

  2. Pretty sure you can confirm Stealth Elf, Eruptor, Terrafin, Trigger Happy, and Sprocket being part of the Swap Force series releases.

    • No idea how I managed to forget Eruptor, Stealth Elf, and Terrafin so thanks for remind me of that. But where are people getting Trigger Happy and Sprocket from? This isn’t the first time I’ve heard it but I don’t know where this info is coming from.

      Edit: Nevermind I found where the rumors are coming from. I don’t know how hot I am on the source but I can fix it later.

  3. You list Magna Charge and Blast Zone as being the two Swap Force figures included in the game, but all the product photos I’ve seen show Wash Buckler instead of Magna Charge. Is you info from a particular press release or E3 or something like that?

  4. Haha, no problem. I was getting excited because Magna Charge looks pretty cool to me. I especially want to try the Magna Zone combo.

  5. enchanted hoot loop is at walmart (but i think that maybe old news)
