My kids are HUGE Skylanders fans and they only started playing at Christmas of this past year. We received a Skylanders Swap Force Starter kit and then for my daughter’s birthday I found some of the Skylanders on sale and had her pick out one. So she’s quite excited to have a girl. Plus over the years I’ve collected a few here and there and they have a small but growing collection.
We are partnering with Frito-Lay and Skylanders and throwing an at home party with some of Zoe and Miles’ friends celebrating the Frito-Lay and Skylanders "Choose and Name a New Hero" contest. Fans were asked to select and name one of three potential heroes they wanted to see come to life in the next Skylanders video game. Three finalists were selected out of over 20,000 contest submissions.
The three Skylanders Trap Team™ hero finalist names and their fan-submitted inspirations (in alphabetical order by hero name) are:
"Bat Spin" submitted by Kimberly Josey from Charlotte, N.C., is a witch tasked with saving the underworld from trolls to prove worthy of joining the Skylanders heroes.
"Flip Wreck" submitted by Noel Foster from Clearwater, Fla., is imagined as half-dolphin and half-shipwreck, unlike any Skylanders the world has ever seen.
"High Five" submitted by Phylicia Nakamoto from Elk Grove, Calif., is the fifth son of the Royal High Flying Dragonflies. Famous for his great speed, this hero can fly higher and faster than any other dragonfly in Skylanders.
The winning hero will appear on Skylanders packaging and in the Skylanders Trap Team™ video game slated for release in North America on October 5, 2014. The finalist receiving the most eligible fan votes will be awarded a $100,000 scholarship. To celebrate the promotion, fans will receive $10-off coupons for Skylanders SWAP Force™ Starter Packs in specially marked packs of Frito-Lay Classic Mix and Flavor Mix 20-count variety packs.
