One of the most exciting new features in Skylanders Imaginators is the ability to create your own Skylander! Using the in-game creation tool, you can select from hundreds of body parts, bits of gear, weapons, and more to create the Skylander of your dreams. This FAQ will help you get started with the in-game Imaginator Creator tool.
Creating your own Skylanders begins with a Creation Crystal, a special Skylanders toy that you place on the Portal of Power just like any other Skylander. The Creation Crystal will store all of the information about your unique Skylander, and once your creation is complete, you use it on the Portal of Power just like any other Skylanders toy.
Each Creation Crystal is aligned with one of the Skylanders’ ten elements and can only create a Skylander of that element. The Starter Pack that comes with the game contains a Fire Creation Crystal. Creation Crystals for other elements are sold separately. If you’d like to find a retailer near you where you can purchase more Creation Crystals, please check out our Where to Buy page.

Start Skylanders Imaginators with your Creation Crystal on the Portal of Power. You will then be taken to the in-game “Imaginator Creator” system where you will select the unique look, power set, personality, and other characteristics of your Skylander.
Important! The first time you use a Creation Crystal, the game will ask you to select a “Battle Class.” There are ten different Battle Classes in all, and each class offers a variety of unique powers and skills to your Skylander. Once you select your Battle Class, your Creation Crystal is permanently set to that Battle Class. There are no options to reset a Creation Crystal or change a Battle Class.
