Team 1 For Skylanders Swap Force

Photo-A-Day #3112

Yesterday I received Skylanders Swap Force in the mail from a PR company for Activision. Today I started playing the game. I was going to wait until I got the Wii U version from my pre-ordered Dark Edition from GameStop but I couldn’t wait and Eva wanted to play with me this morning. So, I opened the box and I played, a lot. I noticed a few things so far.

I had been leveling up every one of my existing Skylanders and completing individual character quests. There are individual character quests in Swap Force and they are pretty cool but repetitive from Giants. Also, the quests that you completed in Giants do not carry over to Swap Force. You pretty much have to do them again.

I do have some additional figures and a whole bunch of them are arriving tomorrow. I’ll be making videos of each one of them so that is why they are all still in their boxes. I’ve played with some of them in the box but will free them once I get these videos made. I’ll also try and get a little game time with the Nintendo 3DS version that arrived today. That game came with Free Ranger, Rattle Shake and Volcanic Lava Barf Eruptor.

I received a special package from MEGA Bloks this past week that included five new products. Three of them were from the new MEGA Bloks Skylanders Swap Force line and two from the Skylanders Giants line. The opinions expressed by me are 100% my own.

One of the new toys from the Swap Force line was Flynn’s Rescue Ship. This was the toy that I completely geeked out over at Toy Fair. However, the toy fair one was lighter blue, almost teal and had Swarm instead of Magna Charge. I’m not sure why it isn’t called the Dread Yacht because that is the name of Flynn’s ship. I don’t know why it was held back and the colors changed to a brighter blue but maybe I’ll find out when I start playing Swap Force. Either way, it is a fantastic set, probably he best set so far. Here is my video review.
