Skylanders Giants: Jet Vac

Hello Portal Masters,

After all the Giants, today let's have a closer look at one of the new regular skylanders:
Jet Vac.


Ok, another air bird after Sonic Boom. Well, why not, they seem different enough (I know, Sonic Boom is not really a bird)

His toy looks cool:


So, yeah overall not bad.

His story:
Jet-Vac was the greatest, most daring flying ace in all of Windham. He was given his magical wings when he was young, as was the tradition for all Sky Barons. But when his homeland was raided, he chose to sacrifice his wings to a young mother so she could fly her children to safety. This act of nobility caught the attention of Master Eon, who sought out the young Sky Baron and presented him with a gift - a powerful vacuum device that would allow him to soar through the skies once again. Jet-Vac accepted the gift with gratitude, and now daringly fights evil alongside the other Skylanders.

I like, that he sacrificed his flying. Such a good person.

Let's now see the powers.

First of, is his canon (kind of obvious)

So he can shoot air. Funny that no Air Skylander did that so far (Warnado Tornado, but that was really different). But still, just shooting is, just allright.

His second ability is his vacuum.

I like that you can suck in enemies and options. It's something new that we haven't seen on any skylanders before. So I really like that.

Unfortunately his third ability is kind of lame. It is flying (like most air skylanders) but since he sacrificed his wings, he uses his vacuum making it more like Gill Grunts limited flying.

In the a video preview (source: it is said, that he will get some abitlities based on his flying.

Although none seemed to be available at E3 a previous movie showed more powers.
A melee attack.

And a spinning attack:

See him in motion:

I don't know if they all still exist or if he just got changed till E3. Time will tell.

I will include all powers in my judgment.

Looks: 5/5
Orignality: 4/5
Powers: 3/5
Variety: 4/5
Overall Rating: 4/5

So overall I really look forward to Jet Vac, although his powers are not super super exciting, but still, he brings something new to the table.

What do you think?! Let me know and c u soon!



  1. those melle attacks are most likely the air blast at close range
    like drill sargents attack

  2. they should have a power up where he can get his wings back just for a short time or something
