Those of you who are trying to be completists with Activision’s Skylanders characters are in for a shock and eventual headache.
Activision has confirmed that silver versions of an undetermined number of Skylanders characters have been scattered across the globe. Only a “handful” are being made available, so they’ll be rare and hard to track down. The clear packaging makes them easy to spot, so I expect many to be snatched up as soon as they hit shelves.
If you did decide to open one of these silver Skylanders up, they are not silver in the game when placed on the Portal of Power. They’ll look the same as their regularly painted version, so their value lies in remaining in the package.
To illustrate what they look like, below is an image of Boomer in all of his silver glory. Silver Dino-rang has already been spotted at Walmart, so the hunt is officially on.
