As Activision gets ready to kick off the latest release in their super successful franchise, Skylanders, they are renaming the month to SWAPtober and giving away one Skylanders SWAP Force starter pack every day from the 1st to 31st.
Young (and old) Portal Masters can visit Skylanders.com to mix and match their favorite SWAP Force characters. Tweet about your favorite combination with a suggested catch phrase for a chance to win. Use the hashtags #SWAPtober and #Skylanders. Winners will receive their starter pack after the game’s release date of October 13.
I’m going to go with Doom Shadow as my favorite combination and “Count the shadows!” as his catch phrase. Doom Shadow is the top half of Doom Stone matched with the bottom half of Trap Shadow. See how he moves in the video below.
If you want to ensure an October 13th delivery, a pre-order is your safest bet. Amazon has the Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack with 3 figures listed for $75, or get the special Dark Edition with 5 dark figures from GameStop for $100.
