Now with the Battle Portal reviews completed I am working on reviewing all the playsets that I have from MEGA Bloks. The latest one is the Sky Turret Defense with Chill. I received this from MEGA Bloks to try out and review. Here is what I thought of it.
The Sky Turret Defense looks like it came right out of the Skylanders Giants game. There is a Heroic Challenge where the player has to jump into four or five different turrets and shoot down toxic barrels. At first I thought this was an impossible level but once I figured out the timing I was all over it. This playset recreates that turret defense system perfectly. I love the detail of the hoses and the canisters on the back of the turret as well as the opening and closing hatch. In the game the hatch pops open so that the player can jump into the turret and shoot down various targets.
Today I picked up two new Skylanders figures which are actually repaints of existing figures, sorta. First I stopped over at Walmart and picked up my pre-ordered Ship to Store Molten Hot Dog which is an exclusive to Walmart. Molten Hot Dog is a bright yellow version of the already released Hot Dog figure that I picked up back in January.
The other figure that I picked up was released today. This is actually a repaint of a figure that hasn’t yet been released. I don’t think I’ve seen a repaint released before the actual figure before but in this case it happened. Toys R Us has exclusives that they call Legendary figures. There were four from the Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure and for Skylanders Giants there are 4 regular sized figures as Legendary and one giant as legendary plus this brand new legendary figure which is also a Lightcore figure. That one is Chill. I like the figure a lot. I just wish that her powers were better. Maybe I’ll try the other upgrade trail and that might be better.
In all it was a good day hunting for Skylanders. We’ve got 10 left to go in the Giants Series and then time to gear up for Skylanders Swap Force.
