Frito Lay holding new Skylander naming contest

skylanders contest entrants

While Activision has been quiet about details of the new Skylanders game that will most likely be coming out later this year, a new promotion from Frito-Lay has given some information. In this new promotion, contestants are asked to name one of the new Skylanders you can see pictured above. The winning name will be used in the next game.

These Skylanders have never been seen before this promotion, which means they must be for the next game. If they were for the current game, Skylanders: SWAP Forcethose on the internet who dig around in the game’s source code would have seen them by now.

One interesting thing to note is how each Skylander seems to represent two elements. The water one in the middle has the water symbol on his forehead, and an air symbol on his belt. Could this be the sign of dual element Skylanders? Another interesting point is that all three seem to have the air element in them somehow.

It’s time to get your creative juices flowing! What names do you have in mind for these characters? What do you think about dual element Skylanders? Enter your submission on the contest page and then share your thoughts in the comments below.

    I’m wondering if I should share the names I gave on here, otherwise they may be stolen ;)

    • Donaald

      Well, you’re the one who suggested it in the first place.

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        I didnt suggest sharing names on here. I suggested sharing opinions about the dual element thingy. probably could’ve clarified though :P

    • Josiah Parsons

      Ya probably shouldn’t.

    • espy1o1

      ya, I’ll do the same.

  • Logan Wayman

    How about this? Skylanders: Quad Craze. Reason: 4 players can play at once!

    • Snake Eater

      Nice game name, the craze could be something different but I like it.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      I really REALLY want them to support four players finally

  • haider alalami

    they should make a skylanders hybred

  • Javy G

    Wallet Basher!

  • Dallas Gooch

    This is potentially a good idea but also potentially a bad idea if I’ve learned anything from the name your own flavor thing they were doing before. xD

  • TaintedXGamer

    ……….. And my wallet is crying I still need to get 4 more swap force skylanders (only getting the ones I need, not go collect em all) and now dual skylanders……… I wonder what the title gonna be? Skylanders #insert final name

  • AzureStarline

    All 3 are just chimeras of previous characters, so either the gimmick for Skylanders 4 is evolution or the creativity is running dry. We’ve got Drobot+Camo, Hex+Warnado (or Free Ranger), and a Thumpback/Boomer/Riptide mash.

  • espy1o1

    I want a second version of countdown

  • espy1o1

    I think that the dual element skylanders are like the same thing as the swapforce skylanders because the swapforce skylanders top and bottom have there own elements like the dual element skylanders.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      right, but what if those elements were locked to one character?

  • espy1o1

    They should have maybe did swappable giants of skylanders buddies edition for example, countdown in a package with one of his bomb buddies but there separate in one package like the skylanders sidekicks.

  • espy1o1

    Sorry for the “of” in one of my comments. What I meant is “or”.
