Skylanders Go Premium With High-End Eon's Elite Toy Line

by Mike Futter on Jul 24, 2014 at 04:00 PM

This year’s Skylanders army will be joined by new versions of Spyro’s Adventure characters. The original poses will be getting a high-end finish as part of the Eon’s Elite line.

Eight of these characters will be available in limited quantities, beginning with Spyro and Chop Chop (we suspect there will be one from each of the eight elements). The figures have a metallic sheen, gold base, and a display case with a lenticular backing.

The figures are usable in-game and are more powerful than other versions of those characters. Eon’s Elite figures will be limited in quantity and available at GameStop and EB Games (Disclaimer: GameStop is Game Informer’s parent company) in North America, Australia, and New Zealand. Europeans will be able to secure them at as yet unannounced retailers.

No price point has been announced for the Eon’s Elite figures yet. Skylanders: Trap Team will be out on October 5 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Wii, and 3DS. For more, check out the recently announced Dark Edition and our preview from E3.
