“All Wound Up!”
    —Wind-Up's official catchphrase

Wind-Up is a wind-up toy who is one of the Tech core Skylanders in Skylanders: Swap Force. He is available in the Sheep Wreck Island Adventure pack. A single pack was offered at Gamestop in the US with pre-orders for Skylanders: Trap Team.


Physical Traits

Wind-Up is a blue and gold metal wind-up robot, of short stature. Each of his arms are blue in color with a gold ring on the end, a gold wind up key on top, and his hands consist of silver claws; he also has two metal legs with blue ankled feet and gold shoe-like toes. His head is blue with a gold bottom jaw, mechanical segmented eyes, and a large key on top. A wind up coil keeps Wind-Up's body connected as a torso.


Wind-Up is always on time. Bursting with coiled-up energy, he's also always ready to spring into action.[1]


Built in the enchanted workshop of a toymaker obsessed with time, Wind-Up was created to help keep his massive collection of complicated clocks working perfectly. But when the toymaker popped out of existence in a freak accident caused by putting hot cocoa in a cross-wired Arkeyan oven, Wind-Up found himself surrounded by an invading Cyclops platoon - with an eye towards claiming the toymaker's secrets for themselves. Using split-second timing, clockwork strategy, and his totally wound up energy, Wind-Up bravely sprang into action and handily defeated the Cyclops. He later joined the Skylanders to help swing the pendulum the other way in their fight against anything that threatens Skylands.

Character Trailers




  • Wind-Up's voice actor, Bob Bergen, is best known for recreating the voice of Porky Pig from the Looney Tunes Show.
  • Whenever Wind-Up wears a hat, it constantly spins around.
    • This might possibly be because of the wind-up key on his head.
  • He, Bouncer, Magna Charge, Drill Sergeant, Jawbreaker, Gearshift, And Ro-Bow are the only Tech Skylanders to be fully robotic.
    • However, he is the first one with an organic voice instead of a mechanical type.
    • He, Jawbreaker, Gearshift and Ro-Bow each have two legs instead of wheels for feet.
  • His Soul Gem Spring-Loaded Crank adds +15 to speed in Swap Force.
  • Whichever upgrade path Wind-Up chooses, his original turn key changes into a gyroscope with two gears in it.
  • He is the only Skylander to be a toy both in game and figure.
  • Wind-Up's official catchphrase sounds similar to Spyro's ("All Fired Up!"). This also applies to Gearshift ("All Geared Up!").
  • Wind-Up was one of the many Skylanders planned to appear in Skylanders: Ring of Heroes. Before the game's closure, only concept art of his Awakened Form was released.
