Earlier today Instagram user ziotec took some photos of the back of a Skylanders SuperChargers pre-order display box which shows off several new Skylanders and vehicles.

So we now know of the new Life SuperCharger "Thrillipede", the returning Magic SuperCharger "Big Bubble Pop Fizz", and the new Light SuperCharger "Astroblast".

There are some new vehicles with Pop Fizz's vehicle "Soda Skimmer", Thrillipede's vehicle "Buzz Wing", and Astroblast's vehicle "Sun Runner". And we have names for Splat's vehicle "Splatter Splasher", Lava Lance Eruptor's vehicle "Burn-Cycle", and Stealth Elf's vehicle "Stealth Stinger".

On the side of the box there is also confirmation of "Racing Action Packs", the example of which contains Deep Dive Gill Grunt, Reef Ripper, and a Sea Trophy shaped like Golden Queen's head. It is likely of a similar function to the Kaos Trophy that comes with the Dark Edition Starter Pack, but we still don't really know what that does yet either. The top corner of the pack does however mention "New Race Tracks" and "Race As Villains" so make of that what you will.

Also worth noting is that in a list of features the box mentions "NEW Online Multiplayer Race & Coop Modes".


In a separate event a product listing on a French retailer's website has outed a possible partial line-up for Wave 1 of SuperChargers along with a potential name of a SuperCharger "Smash It" (by the process of elimination that's either the Earth SuperCharger or the beginning of Roller Brawl's name). If the listings are accurate then (other than the Starter Packs) Wave 1 will be the following:

SuperChargers
  • Dive-Clops
  • Stormblade
  • Fiesta
  • High Volt
  • Nightfall
  • "Smash It"
  • Shark Shooter Terrafin

Vehicles
  • Dive Bomber
  • Crypt Crusher
  • Sky Slicer
  • Shark Tank
  • Stealth Stinger
  • Jet Stream
  • Sea Shadow
  • Burn-Cycle

I am sure it's not out of the realms of possibility that there will also be a Racing Action Pack and Combo Packs available at launch in September.

I'm liking the look of Splat. Probably because of her paintbrish abilities she may have.

V That looks more like a talisman with rainbow coming out of it. Also, as much as I deteste the Pop Fizz figure (I don't completely hate it, just not my total fave) his boat is my tied for fave with Astroblast's plane.

Thrillipede seems to share some the same qualities with others:

Slam Bam - four arms
Flynn - boastful attitude
High Five - similar insectoid species

Also, Splat is really adorable. She will be part of my Skylander team.

I really hope Wolfgang becomes a racing Villain, too. He's awesome!

I'm gonna bet that "Smash It" is an Earth SuperCharger.

Dive-Clops and Deep Dive Gill Grunt for Water
Splat and Big Bubble Pop Fizz for Magic
High Volt and Double Dare Trigger Happy for Tech
Thrillipede and Super Shot Stealth Elf for Life
Fiesta and Unknown Name Rollerbrawl for Undead
Nightfall and probably another new Dark SuperChargers

Elemental Skylanders SuperChargers in their vehicles:
Land - Earth, Fire and Undead
Sky - Air, Life and Light
Sea - Water, Magic and Dark

I am still trying to figure out Tech, if it will have a land, sky or sea vehicle?

I guess Tech will have Land vehicles since that's the terrain type required to complete the main Story and most likely is the "main" one.

I'm not really looking forward to Pop Fizz.
The reason I love the Skylanders is because of all the dragon and reptilian characters.
We're not really getting much this year fitting that category. Last year there was only an Eon's Elite Spyro and Spry. I personally didn't think they counted as new because they were pretty much the exact same as the previous Spyros.

A lot of the characters this year aren't really appealing to me, but some of the characters look good. 4 legged characters could have been able to drive. Spyro has been able to drive before.
They also stated that you can use all characters, just like every other newer game.
So that means they can drive, any character can drive but just can't upgrade the vehicles.

Also Trigger Happy and Gill Grunt are in it, it feels as if Spyro should be there with them.
Activision aren't using Spyro too much, at the moment, he's mostly being used in comic. It's kind of suprising. Also, what is happening to Cynder? She hasn't been here for Trap Team or this game. She didn't even get an Eon's Elite or Mini.
The should sell him on to another company to take care of him and Cynder. Don't forget a Sparx.

Don't get me wrong, SuperChargers still looks great I'm still getting it. I'm sure it will be good.

As long as Spyro is supported he doesn't need new figures and his character won't be sold to other companies.

Same goes for all the other Skylanders.

I do agree this year is not the best in terms of character variety: revamps basically killed SuperCharger's Skylanders uniqueness and all the other ones are bipedal or upright creatures (even Smash Hit seems upright from the blurry pictures we have of him/her).

They are different enough from each other unlike the majority of the Swappers but they are still... "disappointing" compared to last year's creativity burst.

I knew the helicopter belonged to Stealth Elf. Once I saw the trailer, I knew the Stealth Stinger matched her type of helmet.

I kinda agree with you there. I like Pop Fizz as a character but he does look kind of strange as BB.
I also love how LL Eruptor looks too.

I hope Smash Hit comes out in one of the earlier waves, but he seems like maybe a wave 4/5. His vehicle the Thump Truck looks pretty awesome too.
