It looks like Skylanders fans in the UK will finally be able to have a chance to get a hold of some of the sidekicks from Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. On promotional packs of Chupa Chups and Fruittella you'll find a code that you can use on their website to see if you have won. Oddly though the article says that only two of the sidekicks are up for grabs: Gill Runt and Whisper Elf.

The promotion runs from the 15th of June until the end of August giving away ten each day.

I forgot to post it before but I recently completed my walkthrough to the console version of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure with the expansion level Dragon's Peak. I have also now finished off the 3DS guide to the same adventure pack.

The source of the much rumoured pets has finally been revealed: starting in July to get them in North America you'll be buying Frito-Lay multipacks. How you'll get them in other parts of the world is currently unknown.

These "Skylanders Sidekicks" work in-game just like the Magic Items that you get with Adventure Packs and they'll follow your Skylanders around like a pet.

Their names are "Whisper Elf", "Trigger Snappy", "Gill Runt", and "Terrabite".

Now that Wave 4 has been released it's nearly time for those last three Skylanders to make their appearance. The final wave consists of Camo, Warnado and Wham-Shell.

See Kotaku for more images of the game.

They have also confirmed that all of the current Skylanders will work just fine with the sequel, so you'll have plenty of time to stock up and prepare to continue your adventures.

Until then we've still got Camo, Legendary Trigger Happy, Lightning Rod, Sunburn, Warnado, Wham-Shell, and Zook to even be released.

The lineup for the next wave of Skyanders has been detailed thanks to (but unfortunately no exact release date). For brand new characters you'll be able to find Double Trouble, Cynder, and Slam Bam. You will also apparently be able to find the previously exclusive characters Whirlwind and Drill Sergeant for wider purchase.

You will be able to get them in the following combinations:

A Triple Pack containing Whirlwind, Drill Sergeant and Double Trouble.
Single Packs of Cynder, Double Trouble, Whirlwind, Drill Sergeant.
And the Adventure Pack "Empire of Ice" with Slam Bam.

As for release date, a German catalogue gives them a vague "January" release date but who knows?

To round off the otherwise finished for ages walkthrough for Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure I have added a guide to the spooky themed Darklight Crypt Adventure Pack.

Now all we need to do is wait for the Empire of Ice and Dragon's Peak Adventure Packs to be released... whenever that'll be.

Merry Christmas!
