Skylanders SuperChargers and Autism Speaks are supporting kids and families affected by autism with the release of a limited edition action figure line – the Skylanders Power Blue crew- for Autism Awareness Month.
Available now, the Power Blue crew features blue-and-white-colored Skylanders SuperChargers characters including Splatter Splasher, Trigger Happy, Splat and Gold Rusher – all of which appear in-game as their special colors! These characters will retail at the suggested price of $12.99 (SuperChargers) and $14.99 (vehicles).
Skylanders is supporting Autism in several ways beyond the creation of Power Blue toys:
· Supporting an employee-match donation program for Autism Speaks
· Encouraging participation in the Autism Speaks Walk on April 2 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Ca in support of World Autism Awareness Day
· Activision is also making donations to non-profits that are making a difference in the autism community
The toys are on store shelves now at participating retailers in the U.S. and Europe and will be available starting April 1 in Canada.
