"The Skylanders phenomenon appears to be showing no signs of slowing down, and the response to PowerA Skylanders products has been amazing," said John Moore, divisional vice president of product development and marketing for PowerA. "Skylanders fans are clamoring for everything the franchise has to offer, and as the exclusive video game accessory licensee, our assortment of cases, controllers and accessories amplify their experience."
"PowerA has already been a great partner in translating the elements of the game into engaging accessories that delight Skylanders fans," said Ashley Maidy, Head of Global Licensing and Partnerships for Activision. "As we expand this license on a global scale, we'll be working with PowerA to bring officially licensed Skylanders accessories to new territories."
This year, PowerA will be releasing Skylanders editions of its three most popular video game controllers: the Pro Pack Mini controller set for Nintendo Wii, the Mini Pro EX Controller for PLAYSTATION 3 and the officially licensed Mini Pro EX Wired Controller for Xbox 360. Gamers can expect the same high quality PowerA controller experience with the addition of Skylanders themed graphics.
Collecting Skylanders toys has become a popular pastime for kids and gamers alike. PowerA has storage and display solutions for every gamer's collection of Skylanders. Multiple Skylanders can be displayed in the Castle Display Case, Battle Arena or the Carry and Display Case, but if the need to carry an army of Skylanders to a friend's place arises, the Skylanders Gamepack will hold multiple toys as well as the Portal of Power. The Skylanders Gamepack will outfit gamers who are anticipating the impending release of this fall's Skylanders Giants. This bag has room for Skylanders and the soon-to-be-released eight Skylanders Giants figures.
