It’s officially the holiday season in the world of Skylands! To celebrate, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc, is spreading cheer by debuting a special holiday character, Winterfest Lob-Star, on December 7 to Portal Masters in North America. Also, Skylanders fans in North America can get their hands on the fourth Eon’s Elite character, Whirlwind, another fan-favorite character that made her debut in Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure. Winterfest Lob-Star and Eon’s Elite Whirlwind are examples of a variety of Skylanders-themed holiday offerings perfect for Skylanders fans looking for the best stocking stuffers this gift giving season.


On Thanksgiving Day, Skylanders fans were able to look to the skies as Eruptor made his first flight in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Eruptor will join the prestigious ranks of balloons soaring above the streets of New York City for the landmark cultural holiday event. Portal Masters can still check out behind-the-scenes footage of Eruptor prepping for the parade on the Skylanders YouTube channel, SkylandersGame.
