Skylanders Giants Starter Pack - List of All the New Guys!
Skylanders Giants - Starter pack / Booster Pack -Release date October 2012
Skylander Giants is the latest Skylander game by activision and Toys for Bob.
The premise is simple, you buy toys and place them on the portal to transform them into playable in game characters.
This new installment introduces several new elements to the game play.
The most obvious new feature are the Giants themselves, there are 8 Giant Skylanders, 1 for each of the eight elemental types (Water,Life,Air,Rock,Undead,Fire,Tech and Magic).
They stand at least twice as tall as a regular skylander and cost around twice as much to boot.
There are also 8 new regular Skylanders to collect (one of each element again)
Light core Skylanders are another new editon. These figures light up when placed on the portal of power. There are 8 light core Skylanders to collect, some are new and some are reposed figures from the original game.
All of the series 1 Skylanders will be re-released in different poses, and with slightly different move sets.
List of all of the new Skylander Giants - Complete with names and other information
Skylanders Giants: The Giants
Skylanders Giants is just about here and without a doubt the main attraction are the Giants. These huge Skylanders are going to do more damage than any other Skylanders before them. When Kaos sees these guys he better get running the other way.
Tree Rex is the life giant and I guess you could say poster child for Skylanders giants. He was the first one announced. He is also gong to have a very rare blue variant that at the moment is exclusive to a special PS3 bundle.
Eye Brawl is the undead giant and is a very interesting character. He in a way is like two different characters as his body and giant eye are two different people who have joined together.
Thump Back is the water giant and he has a huge anchor that he uses to do some real damage. He makes use of his water powers to put all the bad guys firmly back in there place.
The New Normal Skylanders
Regular, Light core and Special edition versions
Giants: The New Guys
Skylanders Giants is just about to be released and along
with the 8 new giant characters. We are also getting 8 new regular sized
Skylanders. There will be one Skylander for each element and we are going to
have a little look at each one today.
Shroom Boom is the life element Skylander and he is also
available as a light core version. Shroom Boom looks like a mushroom and will
fire himself with his slingshot at his enemies. He looks like he is going to be
a very fun Skylander to play as.
Flashwing is the new earth Skylander and she is quite
special. She is the only earth element
Skylander who can actually fly.
Pop Fizz is the new magic version and he also has three
versions there is the standard and light core version. He also has a special variant
called "Punch" Pop Fizz that is available exclusively with the 3DS starter
Pop Fizz is perhaps the craziest of the new Skylanders.
Fright Rider is the new undead Skylander and is perhaps the
coolest looking figure. He goes into battle on his undead Ostrich.
Jet Vac is the new air Skylander and he actually has three
different versions. He is available as a standard Skylander (as part of the
starter pack on Xbox, PS3 and Wii) He also has a light core version and he will
be part of the Toys r Us exclusive Legendary pack with Ignitor and Slam Bam.
Jet Vac can fly and can shoot enemies with his air cannon.
Chill is the new water element Skylander and she also has a
light core version. Chill uses her powers to make a dagger and a shield out of
Hot Dog is the new fire element Skylander and it looks like
he is going to give Wreckingball some serious competition in the cutest
Skylander competition. He also may have a Legendary version, but this has not
yet been confirmed.
Sprocket is the new tech element Skylander and she is one
tough lady. Any trolls or chompies that get on her wrong side will find
themselves on the wrong end of a beating with here wrench.
