Organised by elemental alphabetical order we have for the new characters: Air Strike (Air), Starcast (Dark), Flarewolf (Fire), Boom Bloom (Life), Aurora (Light), Mysticat (Magic), and Pit Boss (Undead). Also included are the returning Villains Chompy Mage (Life) and Grave Clobber (Water).
We're getting very close to a full roster now as that brings the total seen Skylanders to 16 out of 20, and the Villains to 9 out of 11.
And thanks to forum member Newguy333 for spotting the post.
They include an Earth Sentinel named Barbella, an Undead Smasher called Chopscotch, as well as two returning villains: the Tech Quickshot "Dr. Krankcase" and the elementally realigned Fire Ninja "Tae Kwon Crow".
And a few days ago there was an official reveal at the "Sweet Suite 16" event in New York City where they showed off another elementally realigned returning villain, the now Dark Sentinel "Hood Sickle".
