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.

Bit of a disappointing experience compared to previous installments, but still had its fun moments. Hopefully, a new installment will appear in the future...

Same, I wonder how much this forum will come back if/when they make another game.
#7243 Nuigi12 03:46:11 12/01/2021
I miss this form, had to visit it after all these years... R.I.P. Skylanders man.

I still play imaginators, but it's damn near impossible to get new crystals cause theyre expensive as heck now smilie

V I'm with you on that one! I had so many friends on this forum. I hope all of them are well in these crazy times. We all grew up with Skylanders in our lives and to see it falling farther back into gaming history is kind of hard to watch. But as I said earlier I hope all is well with all the users here past and present.

Miss the days this forum was booming </3

I haven't been on this site in years. What a throwback. Never played much of Imaginators but what I did play was always incredibly fun.
#7239 Super Spyro 49 13:37:20 18/08/2020
V I agree. At the extreme least they should release Chompy Mage and Heartbreaker Buckshot after all this time. That would mean that Imaginators could reach a clean level 60 (given you don't collect any non-in-game variants) because I think that was intended. Also, I'm down for Lost Islands, or another alternative, to come out. Also, I miss the bejesus out of the Spyro's Universe (even though it's been closed since before SWAP Force came out). I feel like the series can come back into full gear.

Lets be honest, who thinks they should release another game?
#7237 Buchi 22:09:45 23/01/2020
This was a fun game.
#7235 ThunderEgg 16:37:34 02/01/2019

the real question is: is there passion in these games anymore?

Seriously, I'm glad TFB/Activision are taking a little break with this franchise. I just got kind of bored playing through this one despite the increase in cutscenes and character customization. Hopefully they'll have more ideas if they decide to rejuvenate it.
#7234 Jaggedstar 00:20:32 21/12/2018

#7233 S2 Swap Force 20:41:52 23/10/2018

V I'm not sure if the link will work but there is a ring of heroes topic.
