World Cup action is just around the corner so what better way to celebrate then by picking up Skylanders Swap Force Kickoff Countdown — a new in-game variant! For Kickoff Countdown his bomb-head has been replaced by a giant soccer ball which he can fling at enemies and launch rockets at them as well.  Skylanders Kickoff Countdown also unlocks a new hat in the game called the Kickoff Hat – which is like a floating soccer ball.

Skylanders Kickoff Countdown drops at Toys R Us on Sunday May 18, 2014 then a week later most other stores will have him in stock.  We’ve got video of what Skylanders Kickoff Countdown looks like both as a figure and inside the game — enjoy!
