The lights are on
Much like Activision did with the first Skylander's game, a new set of figures have been revealed are only obtainable by collecting codes from Frito-Lay products.
You can see the new sidekicks above. They are smaller and more adorable versions of Tree Wrex, Thumback, Ninjini, and Eyebrawl. Head here to learn more and start redeeming codes.
The last time Frito-Lay and Activision did this promotion, it was sort of a first-come-first-serve situation, dispersing figures based on ordered preferences. Just because you want a certain figure and list that one first, didn't necessarily mean you were guaranteed to get it. It's unclear if this promotion functions the same.

Our TakeFrito-Lay must love working with fans of video games – or maybe fans of video games just like eating Frito-Lay chips. For all the Internet memes built around making fun of Doritos and Halo, it's hard to argue that these promotions don't merit some cool things. Exclusive Skylander's figures? Double experience in Halo 4? Quenched thirsts? Satisfied hunger pangs? Free kidney stones and vitamin B deficiencies? What's the downside?

At least it's not Double XP.
no wonder that flavor pack are so giant
where are the star wars toys?
My Take: eat trash and get plastic stuff. Doritos may have a longer half-life than Skylanders figures.
I tried that Halo 3 Mountain Dew once...god, it tasted like utter crap! Still, I have an unopened can in my room for display (who knows, may be a collector's item one day :P). I tend to stay away from potato chips and soda these days though...unless I'm at work or doing something active, I try to stick to water and fruits if I'm just sitting on my ass and playing videogames all day :P.
God I hope my son and wife don't see this
like Sheila implied I'm in shock that any one can get paid $9409 in four weeks on the internet. did you read this web page www.Blue46.ℂom
Thanks for the information. There are enough people in my house that I won't be the only one eating the snacks.
