The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

New Giants Figures For Skylanders Inbound

Posted on Tuesday, February 7 @ 09:40:02 PST by Keri_Honea


I don't think anyone was prepared for what a hitSkylandershas been since it launched last year. Toy and video game stores can barely keep the figures on the shelves for longer than an hour, and now it seems that they will have to make a little more room on their shelves for a few more.

Activision announced today that they will be revealing a new line of giant-sizedSkylandersfigures at the upcoming Toy Fair in New York. In fact, there will be eight giant-sized figures in all. Like the other figures, they each have their own powers and abilities for the video game when placed in the connecting portal device.

But wait, there's more!

Some of the new figures will be able to light up when placed on or in proximity to the portal device. Better yet, they will be able to do so without batteries.

When the Giants release, they won't be alone, either. Eight other, standard-sized figures will launch along with the Giants. There will also be new arenas and gameplay options inSkylanders' Battle Mode, "enhanced Elemental Zones," and new Hero Challenges.

Sounds to me like another case of Activision milking a franchise for all it is worth, but at leastSkylandersfans won't have to buy a new game entirely to enjoy these new Giants. Although, I bet all of those figures together costs more than another game...
