Skylanders Gill Grunt

Skylanders Gill Grunt was one of the very first Skylanders I ever got to play. He was packaged with the Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure Starter Pack, for Wii, PlayStation 3, XBox 360 and PC. This Water Element figure became a firm favorite with Skylanders fans, and returned for a second time in the sequel Skylanders Giants. Nobody knows yet whether there will be a new version of Gill Grunt for the upcoming Skylanders Swap Force game, due for release in Fall 2013. If I get any more information, I will update this page.

Skylanders Gill GruntSkylanders Gill Grunt had a very peaceful and happy life, deep in the oceans of the Skylands. That is, until one day some evil pirates kidnapped his girlfriend, who happened to be a mermaid. He searched ever where for her, on both land and sea, but to no avail. He then decided to join the Skylanders and help defend the Skylands from evil, whilst always looking out for the evil pirates.

 

 

Series 1 Skylanders Gill Grunt

Skylanders Gill GruntThis version is the figure from  the  Spyro’s Adventure game. All Series 1 figures have green plastic on the bottom of their base. His base is decorated with turquoise water, to show he is a Water Element figure. He is some sort of turquoise fish, with arms and legs and huge yellow eyes. He carry’s a large harpoon gun. This version  will play in the Giants game also.

Series 2 Skylanders Gill Grunt

This figure also has a special “Wow Pow” upgrade power, and there is also a choice of two upgrade paths at a certain point in the game. You can decided to concentrate on improving his Harpoon Attack or his Power Hose Attack. This Series 2 figure can also be used in the original Spyro’s Adventure game.

Skylanders Green Gill Grunt

Green Gill GruntThis is a very rare version  that is made out of Translucent green material. This figure was made for the Spyro’s Adventure game, and is has the same pose as a Series 1 figure. It will also play and look exactly the same as the regular version in the video game itself. The figure was produced as a Walmart exclusive, that was packaged with Xbox 360 4GB Skylanders Bundle. This bundle contained the XBox 360 and a Spyro’s Adventure starter pack, with the exclusive Green Gill Grunt. However, you can now find unpackaged versions of him on sites such as Amazon  and eBay.

Max’s Review

I like him because he can shoot 3 harpoons and you can also shoot an anchor. He can also shoot water out of his harpoon shooter. He can use a jet pack which makes him float in the air for a short time. My favorite move is his anchor shot.
