Skylanders®, the popular kids video game that brings physical toys to life, is taking flight in the 88th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for the first time, we are so excited to have witnessed the test launch! Fan-favorite Skylanders character Eruptor will join the prestigious collection of balloons at the parade, marking a significant pop culture milestone for the franchise.
In this picture, Eruptor is flying around as part of his test flight at City Field on November 8, 2014 in Queens Borough of New York City. To re-create Eruptors smoldering physique, artists used more than 40 gallons of florescent paint and five barrels of glitter!
