CYNDER

Cynder is from the Undead elemental class, using her Spectral Lightning to do quick damage. While just an egg, Cynder was stolen by the henchmen of an evil dragon named Malefor and raised to do his bidding.  For years, she spread fear throughout the land until she was defeated by Spyro the dragon and freed from the grip of Malefor.  Despite her desire to make amends for her past, dark powers still flow through Cynder and consequently, most Skylanders try to keep a safe distance… just in case.

DOUBLE TROUBLE

Double Trouble is from the Magic elemental class and uses his Eldritch Beam to cause damage. Double Trouble was an adept spellcaster; on an expedition to find exotic ingredients for his potions, he travelled in search of a rare lily that was said to multiply the power of any spell.  So thrilled was he when he found it, Double Trouble instantly ate the plant and performed a spell.  Suddenly, there was a loud pop… then another… and another – until Double Trouble was surrounded by exact copies of himself.  As it turned out, he had misunderstood the details about exactly what would multiply.  But it didn’t matter, for he quickly realised the clones were delightful companions… never mind that they were only half his size and would explode on contact. 

EMPIRE OF ICE ADVENTURE PACK

The Empire of Ice Adventure Pack comes with Slam Bam and is accompanied by Anvil Rain and Sky-Iron Shield figure accessories. Slam Bam is from the Water elemental class, using his Yeti Fists to instil damage and his ice sculptures to serve as a frosty prison for any evil-doer.

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure is available at retailers across Europe on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC and 3DS.
