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.

this is cool, im excited
#88 terrafin2299 15:53:20 01/06/2016
So, when's e3?
#87 KingMed 15:26:30 01/06/2016
I'm going to make characters from the orignal Spyro games .
#86 StevemacQ 14:41:04 01/06/2016
Is this like Swap Force or is there more depth to character creation? We could make old Spyro characters in Skylanders.
#85 84skylanderdude 14:39:49 01/06/2016
No, Pikachu. It's not just old characters pulled apart. There's mostly new parts, and then there's parts from old characters thrown in there as well. And while there's not endless possibilities (nothing is endless), there's hundreds of thousands upon hundreds of thousands.
#84 PortalMasterJ 14:27:46 01/06/2016
V well of course we're not gonna make swap force characters because that was an old gimmick, plus how would they make the crystals swap? But that doesn't mean it's not gonna be as awesome. Plus they didn't show us all the body parts so you never really know, they could give octopus and blade feet.
#83 Pikachu11668 14:22:41 01/06/2016
V again there are over 300 characters and lots of NPC and including Villians they pulled parts from!

We don't even have the creativity to make swapforce Skylanders! I didn't even see Blades for feet! Or octopus legs or even a snake bottom!
#82 PortalMasterJ 14:19:52 01/06/2016
Plus look at the skeleton looking character, I don't think I've seen that helmet before

And banana head looks real funny for sure lol
#81 Pikachu11668 14:18:28 01/06/2016
V you can recolor existing parts. And take to mind that there are over 300 Skylanders and NPC you can take parts from! So once again nothing original
#80 PortalMasterJ 14:16:48 01/06/2016
V I posted practically right after you did. But what about the guy on the cover of the starter pack? He looked like he had new parts
#79 Pikachu11668 14:15:14 01/06/2016
v the possibilities aren't endless read my post
#78 PortalMasterJ 14:13:35 01/06/2016
Well, after seeing the trailer for imaginators, all I can say is... That... Was... AWESOME! Finally a way to create your own skylander. The possibilities are truly endless now. Though it does beg to ask the question of future games like, will creation crystals work in the next game? If so, will it still allow us to use those skylanders we created? I would assume so since then if it wasn't then people would be upset. But anyway, I think this will be my new favorite skylanders game for sure smilie
#77 Pikachu11668 14:09:11 01/06/2016
Wait guys!!!!!!! Maybe the creation element isn't as infinite as we thought! From my speculations all the body parts for the customization is basically almost every single skylander and NPC broken down into parts! There is almost nothing original except you can mix and match them! Also what if we want to to make a 4 armed character like Slam Bam? Is that possible to add multiple arms, heads, and legs?and what if we want to make a a four legged character with out any arms like slobber tooth or zap? What if we don't want any legs at all and we want to create a character like Bat spin, ninjini, and rocky roll. And what if we want a vehicle added into our move sets like Fryno and tread head? Or a a flying 4 legged character like sunburn and high five? The possibilities are not endless in fact they are just giving us mediocre customization than the full potential!
