The story of Skylanders Imaginators takes place long ago when the Ancients used a mysterious power known as "Mind Magic" to create everything in Skylands. With it, they conjured into existence anything that they could imagine! However, they soon learned that in the wrong hands, it could be very dangerous, and so they sealed it away so that it could never be misused. After discovering this ancient secret, Kaos has unleashed the power of "Mind Magic" into Skylands once again - and he is using it to create an unstoppable army of Doomlanders, the likes of which have never been seen! Now it's up to Portal Masters to create Skylanders Imaginators from their own imagination and stop Kaos and his evil Doomlanders before it is too late. And to help train them, Eon is sending the greatest mystic warriors of all time - the Senseis!


For new playable characters there are 20 brand new Skylander Senseis as well as 11 former villains. Along with their element each Sensei will also have a Battle Class from a list of ten: Smasher, Knight, Ninja, Bazooker, Quickshot, Sorcerer, Brawler, Sentinel, Swashbuckler, and Bowslinger.

The first set of characters to be revealed included King Pen, Golden Queen, and Tri-Tip. Here is a table containing all of the new Skylanders, click the + to see all the known variants:

"Sensei" is the collective name for the new set of Skylanders (the villains also function as Senseis), their Battle Class determines the types of attacks and weapons they use as well as which abilities they unlock for your Imaginators. They all have a new type of super attack called Sky-Chi that slowly fills up as you defeat enemies until it reaches a point where you can unleash it on your unsuspecting foes (quite similar to the ability Trap Masters had in the 3DS version of Trap Team).

Owning a Sensei of a particular battle class will unlock a Secret Technique for your Imaginators of the same class. As well as that they will each unlock an item and a weapon for use in customisation. Senseis will also be able to access areas known as "Sensei Elemental Realms".

Creation Crystal

Included in the Starter Pack is a Fire Creation Crystal, this allows you to create and store your very own custom Fire element Skylander. To create a Skylander of a different element you'll need to purchase a Creation Crystal of that element.

Be aware that once you select a Battle Class you can not change it on that Creation Crystal ever again. So choose carefully!

Starter Pack

In the Starter Pack you get the Water Sensei Master King Pen, the Earth Villain Golden Queen, and a Fire Creation Crystal. The portal included is identical to that of the Swap Force portal (some regions instead have a modified SuperChargers Portal without a trap slot).

There is also once again a Dark Edition of the Starter Pack, it contains three Dark variant Skylanders (King Pen, Golden Queen, and Wolfgang) and three standard Creation Crystals (Fire, Life, and Dark). The pack also comes with a Gold Imaginite Mystery Chest that unlocks some gear for your Imaginators.

And there is a "Crash Edition" that is only available on PlayStation 3 and 4, it has the same contents as the regular Starter Pack plus the Crash Bandicoot and Dr. Neo Cortex toys. The characters will be available in a separately sold Adventure Pack at a later date.


The game is only appearing on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the Wii U. That means no Wii, 3DS, or Tablet versions this year.

Wouldn't the death of a series be a big 20th anniversary?
#7124 SkylandrPurists 00:39:36 13/09/2017
I'm waiting until 2018, just in case they do something special for Spyro's 20th Anniversary.

Let's face facts guys, they're probably not going to make another sky landers. The toys to life genrea is practically dead. Disney infinity is gone, Lego dimensions is only staying afloat cause they keep making mini Lego sets of obscure properties and amiibo have a broader appeal cauae they're Nintendo characters. Activision are only going to produce a game that makes them money and last time I checked they barely made anything back on imaginators, especially compared to previous games, whereas they're making a killing with the Crash N. Sane trilogy. So instead of putting their time and money into a new skylanders they will more than likely release a Spyro trilogy as that would have a much broader appeal and would make them alot more money than skylanders and it'd be cheaper to produce seeing as they wouldn't have to worry about production costs of stuff like toys.

I know we know this for a while now...but any reason why there are four molds for Life Crystals, but three for the rest?

Ho yah

It's Spyro's and Crash's birthday today
#7119 MLG Skylander 20:07:57 30/08/2017
I know
#7118 SkylandrPurists 11:12:09 27/08/2017
Wow; this has been kind of a sucky year for Skylanders.

E3 only listed that the franchise is still continuing, San Diego Comic-Con had nothing, Gamescom had nothing.

I guess maybe they are just taking a break....I don't blame them.

I got lost imaginate mines from for 25.00 euros, arrived last Wednesday. It’s a really great level pack, and Ro-Bow is a great figure and
has nice powers.

V: Oh, so I DID get the week right,

does mesmeralda have legs hiding under her skirt with magic gas thing to hide the
details or she born with it flying in mid-air?
#7113 SkylandrPurists 21:07:18 24/08/2017
Have we heard anything from Gamescom yet? Did I even get the right week?
#7112 Theflarewolf95 18:18:14 24/08/2017
i cant tell you the amount of RO-BOWs and chompy mages i have seen because its a lot (be jealous)
#7111 colton 17:59:19 24/08/2017
Ok, it's been 91 days... If you want it bad enough, just get it on eBay. Activision has officially given up on its people. I need row bow so, I'm going to eBay. If you want ROW-BOW I suggest you do the same. (Ignore if you live in a country where ROW-BOW or chompy mage are in stores and also acknowledge my envy)
