It’s no surprise my kids love Skylanders. In fact, the very first Skylanders was launched when I was pregnant with my youngest child and my oldest and I played to keep my mind off of how horrible I felt during the pregnancy. If you aren’t familiar with this awesome game, time to get on board. Skylanders is great for small kids and big kids, and clearly adults too!
If you are a Skylanders fan, you will be happy to know they just added some cool characters to their already awesome line-up.
Blaster-Tron isn’t just state-of-the-art technology; he literally is from the future.
When the Skylanders traveled forward in time to stop Wolfgang, they ended up bringing back the renegade robot with hopes that they could learn from his advanced circuitry. Eon immediately noticed that he had an actual “Good/Evil” switch that had been set to Evil. After flipping it to Good, Blaster-Tron was completely transformed. Besides going from bad robot to good robot, he ditched his blaster gun in exchange for a laser sword. No one knew exactly why, but as long as he was helping out the cause of justice, the Skylanders were happy. As a bonus, Master Eon noticed that his skill with the blade was second to none, and so he made Blaster-Tron a Sensei for the Knight Class, where he now gives 110% to training his students – which is technically possible because in the future, we figure out how to give more than 100%.
Long before she became a Sensei, Tidepool was an undercover agent for a top secret organization
known as the Aqua Marines. However, one day she was betrayed by her superiors, who were part of an even more top secret organization intent on destroying Skylands. Using her spy training, Tidepool made it her personal mission to seek out every member of this evil shadow group and bring them to justice. This did not go unnoticed by Master Eon, who felt that someone of her caliber would be perfect to train new Skylanders as a Sensei of the Gunslinger class. However, Tidepool was not easily convinced that she could even trust Eon and the Skylanders after being deceived by her last organization. To earn her trust, she requested that everyone pass a truth test that she would conduct. Thankfully, all of the members of the Skylanders Academy passed with flying colors… except for Flynn, who insisted that he was 50% Mabu and 50% enchilada sauce. Tidepool felt that he was 100% meathead.
