The Frito-Lay naming competition has officially begun and has revealed the three brand new Skylanders that have been lined up for you to name.

Once you've entered your details you'll be asked to name one of the three and to give some background on the Skylander, who they are, why they've got that name and why you chose to name them.

You're not limited to just naming one though, you can name all of the characters and can even submit different names and backgrounds for the same Skylander. Take care not to submit the exact same name for the same character more than once though.

The competition is only open to residents of the United States who are 18 years or older, if you're not old enough then perhaps try getting an older relative to help.

You've got a little bit of thinking time but don't take too long as you only have until March the 21st at 11:59:59 AM Central Time to submit your entries before the competition closes.

The finalists for each Skylander (as decided by the judges) will be revealed around April 21st and then from the 19th of May to the 12th of June online voting will be run to select the best of the three names to win the grand prize of "a $100,000 scholarship in the form of a check" as well as to make the name official. The other two finalists don't go away empty handed though and will each get a "Skylanders prize package" with an approximate retail value of $1000.


Although last week's Toy Fair didn't bring us a reveal of Skylanders 4 a few other possible new Skylanders were accidentally revealed by Mega Bloks in promo photographs of upcoming sets.

Due to the nature of the reveal it is unclear whether they are actually all playable characters (or even if any of them are) and no names were directly attributed to them.


Skylanders fans in the UK may be interested in the Skylanders SWAP Force Spectacular event that is currently running at the National Media Museum in Bradford. The event started on the 22nd of February but runs through half term to Sunday the 2nd of March so there's still time to go. It is free entry but you'll need to reserve your place in advance for a couple of the activities. Thanks to Skylanders Dad for spotting this one.


And finally, in Swap Force toy news, Enchanted Star Strike has been spotted in several Canadian Walmarts over the weekend.

Enchanted Star Strike is an in-game variant of Star Strike who also happens to be LightCore. She'll be exclusive to Walmart in the US much like Enchanted Hoot Loop.

Darn,I'm not from the US >:I If there's the 'older relative' thing,could people from abroad suggest names and backstory to the characters for people in the US? I know I can think of a lot of stuff about them; I don't even mind the prize,having a go at naming one of them(AND giving a backstory,which could mean something new and with more depth than the majority of the Swap Force ones) is reward enough.

I imagine there will be several hundred people who suggest "Dragon Fly" for the first one lol.
New characters look interesting, what with the cute design style. Didn't know some water-bat-demon-thing could look so adorable.
I wonder if they're the nano force?

Slightly annoyed at the strict character limits, very hard to make a decent backstory in 2-4 sentences.

Probably, however, I think it‘s not the air symbol, it looks like a seashell.

.. In all seriousness, I think it's cool they're holding this competition! Too bad it's limited to the United States though.. Hope these new Skylanders get cool names. I really like the first two!
