I was sent product for review. All opinions are my own and yours may vary.
If you have young children I am sure you know all about the phenom of Skylanders Imaginators! We have a few portal masters in our home! We were recently sent the new Senseis to help them on their adventures. This game has quickly become the hot new item in our home and we were only too happy to check out what these new Senseis can do.
Allow me to introduce you to Blaster-Tron and Tidepool. Blaster-Tron uses his laser sword for advanced training and Tidepool was an undercover agent for the top secret organization known as the Aqua Marines.
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%.
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.
No matter what the back stories are to these new Senseis my kids loved checking them out. I kept hearing “Whoa”, “Cool” and more- coming from a 15-year old that means alot! The eight-year old was also impressed by all the new graphics and what powers these Senseis had. Check them out today!
