Activision notched an unexpected hit this year when they mashed up collectible toys and video games to create Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. The idea of static toys that you could bring to life inside of a playable world appealed to kids and adults alike, including Kotakuites Brian Crecente, his son Tristan and Mike Fahey. Sales for Skylanders figures have proven brisk so it makes sense that Activision would grow the franchise while buzz is hot. Remember this is the company that squeezes every bit of juice out of its franchises, sometimes to great success as with Call of Duty and sometimes to exhaustion as with Guitar Hero.
