Skylanders Imaginators Wave 5 is (Officially) Out Now
Wave 5 of Skylanders Imaginators is now officially available for purchase at Big W and Target in Australia. Keen Skylanders fans might’ve noticed that this had been slowly appearing for sale in stores across the country over the past few weeks, but it seems today was meant to be the official release date. This wave of toys contains three packs – Tidepool and Blaster-Tron Sensei figures and the Lost Imaginite Mines Level Pack. Target are listing Tidepool and Blaster-Tron on their website but not the Lost Imaginite Mines Level Pack while Big W aren’t listing any of them. Might be worth checking with your local store to see if they have stock. Make sure to keep an eye on MightyApe as well, as they’ve sometimes had the Wave 5 toys in stock.
Here’s some more detailed info on the toys included in this wave:
Lost Imaginite Mines Level Pack
This pack comes with three toys – a Ro-Bow Sensei figure who unlocks a new level to play through, a blue Imaginite chest that unlocks 80 new parts for your custom characters, and a Magic Element Creation Crystal that will let you create an Imaginator character of the Magic Element. Ro-Bow is a Tech Bowslinger Sensei, so if you don’t have a Tech Element Sensei yet then you’ll gain access to the Tech Sensei Realm. If Ro-bow’s your first Bowslinger Sensei then you’ll also unlock a new special move for your Bowslinger Imaginators.
Tidepool – Water Gunslinger
Long before she became a Sensei, Tidepool was an undercover agent for a top secret organization known as the Aqua Marines. However, one day she was betrayed by her superiors, who were part of an even more top secret organization intent on destroying Skylands. Using her spy training, Tidepool made it her personal mission to seek out every member of this evil shadow group and bring them to justice. This did not go unnoticed by Master Eon, who felt that someone of her caliber would be perfect to train new Skylanders as a Sensei of the Gunslinger class. However, Tidepool was not easily convinced that she could even trust Eon and the Skylanders after being deceived by her last organization. To earn her trust, she requested that everyone pass a truth test that she would conduct. Thankfully, all of the members of the Skylanders Academy passed with flying colors… except for Flynn, who insisted that he was 50% Mabu and 50% enchilada sauce. Tidepool felt that he was 100% meathead.
Blaster-Tron – Light Knight
Blaster-Tron isn’t just state-of-the-art technology; he literally is from the future. When the Skylanders traveled forward in time to stop Wolfgang, they ended up bringing back the renegade robot with hopes that they could learn from his advanced circuitry. Eon immediately noticed that he had an actual “Good/Evil” switch that had been set to Evil. After flipping it to Good, Blaster-Tron was completely transformed. Besides going from bad robot to good robot, he ditched his blaster gun in exchange for a laser sword. No one knew exactly why, but as long as he was helping out the cause of justice, the Skylanders were happy. As a bonus, Master Eon noticed that his skill with the blade was second to none, and so he made Blaster-Tron a Sensei for the Knight Class, where he now gives 110% to training his students – which is technically possible because in the future, we figure out how to give more than 100%.
These new toys are retailing at the regular price of $16.95 for Senseis and $39.95 for the Level Pack. Are you excited to finally venture into the Lost Imaginite Mines?
