Happy Meals sold at participating McDonald’s restaurants between Mar. 28 and Apr. 24 will include figurines representing characters from Skylanders Swap Force. Eight characters from Skylanders Swap Force — Break, Prism, Eruptor, Free Ranger, Magna Charge, Freeze Blade, Wash Buckler and Rattle Snake — will be included with McDonald’s Happy Meals during the promotion, TechnologyTell notes.

Along with the figurines, McDonald’s is including a $10 coupon that can be redeemed when purchasing a Skylanders Swap Force starter pack in the Happy Meals.

For Happy Meal consumers who don’t want a Skylanders Swap Force figure, McDonald’s is offering Happy Meals with Hasbro’s (HAS) My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic figures as an alternative.

McDonald’s stock slipped slightly in Tuesday trading, while ATVI stock gained modestly and HAS stock fell modestly.
