Slam Bam, Double Trouble and Cynder are the Wave 3 figures for "Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure." Respectively, the elemental character types of these figures are Water, Magic and Undead.
When "Skylanders" was released in October 2012, the video game came with 20 plastic figures, each of which unlocked playable in-game characters. These figures were grouped as Wave 1. Twelve more figures were released in four three-figure waves. The final four waves were released in November 2012 and in January, March and April 2012.
"Skylanders" was developed by Toys For Bob. Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen wrote for the game, which featured original music by Lorne Balfe. "Skylanders" garnered generally positive reviews and was commercially successful.
During 2012's first quarter, only two games profited more than "Skylanders" throughout Europe and North America. As of 2014, the "Skylanders" franchise had earned Activision over $2 billion. Considering "Skylanders" toys alone, sales of "Skylanders" figures exceeded sales of the first and third most popular action figure lines.
As of 2015, over 30 million "Skylanders" accessories have sold globally. "Skylanders" was a spin-off of the "Spyro" game series. The game was not released in Japan until 2013, when Japanese gamers received an exclusive version of the game for the Wii U. "Skylanders" was followed by 2012's "Skylanders: Giants."
