Skylanders introduced some great new Easter characters for the school holidays: Eggcited Thrillipede and Spring Ahead Dive Bomber. Have you seen them yet? Both of them are packaged in an egg-shell and they have been more popular here than chocolate eggs this year.
For Easter they brought out a seasonal exclusive: Eggcited Thrillipede a great new character. There’s very much something of the Easter Bunny about him and despite the pretty pastels, he’s clearly a character on a mission. He served in the Millipede Military in the outer regions of Skylands and as the top pilot in his unit, Thrillipede was responsible for single-handedly destroying over 300 Greeble warships. When the Great Greeble War came to an end, he returned to his hometown of Flutter Bay as a celebrated hero and news of his exploits eventually made their way to Captain Flynn at the Skylander Academy. In a series of challenges, the two pilots raced, soared through obstacles, and performed incredible stunts in front of a cheering Flutter Bay crowd. In each event, Thrillipede emerged victorious, and was asked to join the Skylanders shortly after.
Then there’s Spring Ahead Dive Bomber (from the water element). The Dive Bomber is actually a heavy-duty aquatic battle tank with enchanted metal plating capable of withstanding the immense pressure of the deep ocean.
It’s Spring in Skylands! To celebrate Master Eon has revealed the locations of some of its best-kept secrets. Can you unlock its mysteries?
