These characters are twice the size of your regular Skylanders figures. Each comes with an amazing show of power and ability that portrays it’s “colossal scale” in game.
There are a total of eight Giants named Swarm, Bouncer, Tree Rex, Crusher, Hot Head, Eye-Brawl, Ninjini and Thumpback. Out of these only the first five will be making an appearance in the game at launch. I reckon the rest will follow through a later update or planned DLC.
Giants are not the only characters available for purchase. A series of ‘Lightcore’ characters are also available for purchase and will cost you £12.99 a piece.
Skylanders Giants will release this Friday on the 19th of October.
