This winter Activision is keeping up its tradition of releasing seasonal Skylanders by issuing a special festive edition of a character from its hit video game/toy combo, Skylanders: Trap Team.

Winterfest Lob-Star will be available in North America from December 7 onward. He is outfitted for the holidays in a bright red and white number in place of his usual blue. Also, there is a suggestion of Santa’s beard and Christmas sprinkles in the decoration of his underside.

The standard version of that character debuted in the first game in the Skylanders series, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, which was released in 2011.

Skylanders will also be marking the season of goodwill at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The heroes of Skylands will be represented by an inflatable Eruptor, who is being prepared for the annual event in the video below.
