Series 2 Skylanders a versions of Skylanders that have been in the first game.
They do have an additional power (I wonder if the Light Cores will also get that), the wow pow power and in some way, they seem to be able to switch between upgrade paths.
I personally am torn about the hole subject.
The changing of upgrad paths is great (althouhg I really wonder how that will work) and the additional power is nice. However, I don't want to buy a remodeled Skylander for each upcoming game.
So I hope they will think about that.
Another point I don't get: There will be 24 Series 2 Skylanders.
So 8 will not get remodeled. How did they chose these 8? I mean, ok, IF (i highly doubt that) 4 of the 8 get the Light Core Version (as I said, doubt that, I think based on Shroom Boom, Light Core will be 4 of the 24) then it would just be 4 missing. But what if these are my favourites? I mean, I would rahter have bout 32, with the promise they will work for future games and will not be reposed over an over again.
But getting all but 8 (I guess on of each element)? I don't get it.
I also wonder if the changing of paths, Wow Pow skills and stuff are available for the new Skylanders and the Giants.
But only time will tell.
So for now, let's have a look at the 2 characters, which have been official Series 2 skylanders (I know there are other pictures arround, but I will get to them in a different post, since it is not seen, if they are Series 2 or Light Core Characters).
The first who was shown was Zook.
I like his new version more than his series one, but I cannot really tell you why.
Let's see them next to each other:
I really don't know what it is. It must be the face...
Ok, the second one we have seen is Cynder.
Our Dragon Lady looks really gorgeous.
Let's compare old Cynder with new Cynder:
The old one seemed cute, the new one more majestic in a way.
Cynder is also the first Skylander we've seen some of the new Power.
Ok, I am less than impressed, but who knows? Maybe it will be upgradeable to something amazing?
Destroying the ground and freeing 10 ghosts?
Ok, ok, I know, unlikely!
Well, that's it for now.
How do you like the Series two guys? I will say, I like the design and if you can switch upgrades, that's kind of cool, but Wow Pow (at least Cynders...) does not excite me that much.
And I still don't get why 8 get banned from remodeling.
C U next time!
