Countdown is a tech element character and part of the Skylanders Swap Force. He was discovered by a group of Yetis who were snowboarding one particularly chilly morning when they came across a big bomb encased in ice. After bringing it back to their cabin, they were shocked when it actually came to life. No one, not even Countdown himself, has any memory of where he came from or how he ended up frozen in the mountains.
Swap Force is the third installment in Activision's hugely popular Skylanders game series. Kids can bring this Skylanders Swap Force character to life by placing it on the Portal of Power.
