Skylanders Trap Team Fan Choice Figure Finalists Get Names

Skylanders Trap Team Fan Choice Figure Finalists Get NamesActivision’s first-even Skylanders fan’s choice contest is moving to the final stage with the winning fan entries to name each of the three potential new core Skylanders for Skylanders Trap Team having wrapped up.

To refresh your memory or bring you up to date, a couple months ago Activision and Frito-Lay launched a contest in which three new core Skylanders — each designed by Toys for Bob — would participate in a fan vote to determine which would be made into a toy and included in Skylanders Trap Team, due in stores on October 5. Before the winning Skylander could be selected, fans were tasked with submitting entries to give each a name and brief description, and Activision and Frito-Lay have chosen the winning entries.

Here they are:

  • Bat Spin, submitted by Kimberly Josey from Charlotte, N.C., is a witch tasked with saving the underworld from trolls to prove worthy of joining the Skylanders heroes.
  • Flip Wreck, submitted by Noel Foster from Clearwater, Fla., is imagined as half-dolphin and half-shipwreck, unlike any Skylanders the world has ever seen.
  • High Five, submitted by Phylicia Nakamoto from Elk Grove, Calif., is the fifth son of the Royal High Flying Dragonflies. Famous for his great speed, this hero can fly higher and faster than any other dragonfly in Skylanders.

It’s a pretty big deal for whoever wins. Not only will the winning Skylander be featured on Skylanders Trap Team packaging, but the winner will receive a $100,000 scholarship as well for naming the winning Skylander.
