This Easter weekend, Skylanders challenged us with these two new Spring edition – Easter characters: Eggcited Thrillipede and Spring Ahead Dive Bomber. Have you seen them yet? Both of them are packaged in an egg shell which is definitely better than a chocolate Easter egg! Mr K is super eggcited!
Firstly, let me introduce you to Eggcited Thrillipede (Life). He served in the Millipede Military in the outer regions of Skylands. As the top pilot in his unit, Thrillipede was responsible for single-handedly blasting over 300 Greeble warships out of the sky! When the Great Greeble War came to an end, he returned to his hometown of Flutter Bay as a celebrated hero. He was the talk of the town and everyone wanted to shake the many hands of the famous young pilot. News of his heroics eventually made their way to Captain Flynn at the Skylander Academy, who set out to determine if the stories were true. In a series of friendly challenges, the two pilots raced, soared through obstacles, and performed incredible stunts in front of a cheering Flutter Bay crowd. In each event, Thrillipede stood victorious, and was asked to join the Skylanders shortly after. Of course, Flynn later admitted that he “let him win” so that Thrillipede wouldn’t be embarrassed in front of his hometown.
Thrillipede is eager to show everyone that his egg tossing supremacy was no fluke and ready to defend his title as the reigning Dragon Egg Toss Champion.
Next, we have Spring Ahead Dive Bomber (Water). The Dive Bomber is a heavy duty aquatic battle tank! With enchanted metal plating capable of withstanding the immense pressure of the deep ocean, evil has nowhere to hide when Dive-Clops is in pursuit!
It’s Spring in Skylands! To celebrate Master Eon has revealed the locations of some of its best-kept secrets. Portal Master, with the help of Eggcited Thrillipede and Spring Ahead Dive Bomber, reveal these few places for you to unlock the mysteries of Skylands!
