Activision have announced that Skylanders Imaginators is now available at major retailers across the country. For the first time, Portal Masters can create their own Skylanders by customising appearance, powers, abilities, names, catchphrases, musical themes and much more.
A new mobile app called Skylanders Creator is also available now and it lets fans take their creations with them. Featuring similar creation tools available in the Skylanders Imaginators console game, players can create Imaginators from scratch or magically transfer their created characters from the console game to the app using special audio technology. The app helps fans to express their creativity and love for Skylanders. Players can simply download Skylanders Creator for free from select iOS and Android mobile devices’ app stores.
Also, for the first time in toys-to-life history, fans can immortalise their Skylanders Imaginator creations in physical forms using Skylanders Creator. Some fans can choose to have their creations transformed into 3D printed Imaginator figures (limited quantities, while supplies last). Additionally, they can create Imaginator Cards emblazoned with full colour images of their created Skylanders and fully-playable in the Skylanders Imaginators console game. Fans also can create a customised Skylanders Imaginator T-shirt featuring an image of their very own creation. Availability of these items varies by territory, and not all features are available at game launch.

The new toys-to-life game offers fans more creative choices than ever before, including a variety of music tracks that players can use to customise their Imaginators. Song selection includes “A State of Trance” music from famous artist and DJ Armin van Buuren. Imaginator music styles provide players with a fun way to express their characters’ personalities – each style morphing to match the players’ gameplay experience.
The story of Skylanders Imaginators takes place long ago when the Ancients used a mysterious power known as “Mind Magic” to create everything in Skylands. With it, they conjured into existence anything that they could imagine! However, they soon learned that in the wrong hands, it could be very dangerous, and so they sealed it away so that it could never be misused. After discovering this ancient secret, Kaos has unleashed the power of “Mind Magic” into Skylands once again – and he is using it to create an unstoppable army of Doomlanders, the likes of which have never been seen! Now it’s up to Portal Masters to create Skylanders Imaginators from their own imagination and stop Kaos and his evil Doomlanders before it is too late. And to help train them, Eon is sending the greatest mystic warriors of all time – the Senseis.
