Frito-Lay Contest Lets Fans Name the Next Skylanders Hero

Post by on Skylanders: Swap Force, Skylanders: Trap Team 8169 9

Frito-Lay is teaming up with Activision again for an all-new competition, except with a slight twist where fans will be able to choose the character and name it as well!

The Frito-Lay/Skylanders Choose and Name Contest will begin on February 24th, 2014 (Central Time) and run through to March 21st, 2014 (Central Time).

By heading to http://www.fritolay.com/skylanders during the competition period, fans will be able to select from one of three possible characters, provide their most creative name and a bit of background info to where the inspiration for the name came from.

From the submitted entries, Activision will pick their favourite names for each of the three characters and Portal Masters will be able to vote on the names they love the most. The voting period will run from May 19th, 2014 (Central Time) through to June 13th, 2014 (Central Time), with finalists for each three character to be announced around April 21st, 2014.

The entry that receives the most votes will win the grand prize of $100,000 Scholarship as a cheque or bank transfer. The remaining two finalists will each win a Skylanders prize package valued at $1,000 each. What it includes has not been revealed at this time.

Full details for Competition Terms & Conditions can be viewed here. To countdown to the competition launch date, please visit the Frito-Lay competition page located here.

Competition is only open to U.S. residents.

Interestingly, Frito-Lay doesn’t make mention of what will happen to the new three Skylanders named in this competition. It isn’t clear if they will be produced as variants, such as Quickdraw Rattle Shake and Halloween Fright Rider, or if the characters named will form new Skylanders for the upcoming title due out later this year. More info to be revealed in two weeks time when the competition launches. Be sure to check back then!

Thanks, Sandy Crocs!
