  • I’ve never heard of them, but my daughter will love any one of them. This Easter we’ve been looking for a different kind of Easter egg for T, something like this, but couldn’t find any and ended up with the usual Disney Easter egg which she liked, but this Easter Skylanders is more her thing. Hopefully next Easter 😉

  • Easter is upon us and, once again, I am struggling with non-candy things to give my kids. I am not a huge fan of sugaring them up for days simply because the Easter Bunny comes. There are a ton of things you can find that kids would enjoy, but thanks to Activision, I have some ideas my Skylanders lover is so excited to have. Activision sent us a variety of items to try but, honestly, we love Skylanders already and would have purchased all of these in time probably!

    Easter weekend may well be over but we are still on our school holidays, to celebrate Easter Skylanders have sent us an Easter Egg with a difference.

    March 30, 2014 Retro Gaming Blog Article:
    A random trip to Toys R Us led to my discovery of an Easter Skylanders figure for Swap Force! I'm a big fan of holiday variants - in all forms. So, finding an Easter (labeled as "Springtime") festooned Trigger Happy Skylander was awesome! Springtime Trigger Happy is available for Easter!

    Last Fall's Pumpkin Head Eye Brawl was an awesome figure, however, his Halloween look did not appear in-game. He still looked the same as the original Giant's figure, proving that he wasn't explicitly programed into the game. Some people were quite surprised and disappointed by this. My son and I played the original Eye Brawl and Halloween version simultaneously. It got fairly confusing... for me.

    Springtime Trigger Happy has a pink/purple skin tone and rides an Easter egg bomb - all of which appears in-game while playing! This is a welcome discovery for such a fun character.

    He's one of our favorite Tech characters, so it's good fun to be able to play his Easter variation. I keep saying "Easter" even though he's labeled as "Springtime". It reminds me of how some people prefer "Happy Holidays" to "Merry Christmas" to avoid awkward situations with those who don't celebrate Christmas.

    I've always thought that was ridiculous. All people are different in various ways - letting religion dictate a holiday greeting is idiotic. So, we're stoked to play Easter Trigger Happy! :)

    Activision made a lot of fun changes to the packaging for Springtime Trigger Happy. The clear plastic around the figure is egg-shaped as opposed to the square shapes for other figures.

    There is a zigzag pattern ont he cardboard backer that is reminiscent of Easter eggs. The enclosed trading card bares the same image. This looks like a properly planed holiday release. Well done!
