If there’s one thing that my son loves, it’s Skylanders! It’s been an obsession of his for the last 2 years but it’s actually something I don’t mind. Not only does he love playing the game, he also loves playing with the figures. I love seeing his imagination run wild and him explore different worlds with them. So, I’m usually always hearing about new Skylanders Swap Force characters that are coming out. In fact, just a few days ago I was in line at Toys R Us to get the latest Skylander Doom Stone.
So, when I received an email telling me about the newest character to the Skylander Swap Force family, I knew that it was going on our list of things to buy this weekend!
Kickoff Countdown has the head of a soccer ball and celebrates this summer’s biggest sporting even! This unique Skylander will be available in Toys“R”Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com on Sunday, May 18 and at all major retailers starting May 25.
Originally, Kickoff Countdown was discovered by a group of Yetis who were snowboarding one particularly chilly morning when they came across a big bomb encased in ice. After bringing it back to their cabin, they were shocked when it actually came to life. No one, not even Countdown himself, has any memory of where he came from or how he ended up frozen in the mountains. Since becoming a Skylander, Master Eon has been graciously trying to help piece together fragments of his past. But this has proven difficult, as Countdown loses some of his memory every time he explodes – which happens a lot!
Will Kickoff Countdown be joining your collection?
