Hello Portal Master,
Let's look at another new Skylander together - Shroomboom..
Ok, the name is kind of weired, so let's see the character behind it (so far, I only found the toy).
I really like small and crazy characters and he seem to be just that.
Now, Shroomboom is the first of the new skylanders that has been seen in "normal" toy form and as the new lightcore character.
I do like both of his versions, they seem funny and the glowing is nice.
But I'm still not sure about light core... why do I want a character two times. I know, they have the enter the game ability but call me crazy, I like using the skylanders to beat the monsters. I don't want a light to do it...
But I have to see.. I know myself so I will probably buy them both anyway..
But I will do another post on this issue (also about the series 2 skylanders).
So let's focus on Shroomboom's powers.
I mean, of course we had characters doing similar things (Boomer, Flameslinger, Zook...)
But it still seems nice.
The second thing I saw, which seems also to have to do with the the sling shot was this:
I like this, because I don't think we have seen this before. I wonder if the gas does something.
The second (or third) attack, is shooting himself
His last ability is a circle of Melons, ah I mean Mushrooms....
I mean, it reminds me a lot of Camo.
Hm, so I am not sure. Shroomboom, although original in design seems to copy lots of abilities.
I don't think there is a lot we have not seen before.
Orignality: 1/5 (based on powers more than design)
Overall Rating: 3/5
Oh Shroomboom. Although I want to like this guy a lot, he just seems a little boring.
Soooo sorry! Maybe I will change my mind as soon as you are in my collection!?
We will see!
What do you think? Has he shot his way into your hearts? Let me know!
C U soon
