Activision mashed up collectible toys and video games last year to create an surprise hit last year in its Skylanders franchise. Last year's Toy Fair was when they announced Skylanders and this year's Toy Fair sees the reveal of a new franchise expansion after a flurry of rumors.

Skylanders Giants introduces a total of 16 new collectible figures to the franchise, with half of those coming in as Giants at twice the size of regular Skylanders toys. The second wave of Skylanders will also light up when near the Portals of Power and will come tied to a new game as well. The first set of Skylanders toys will also work with Skylanders Giants but only the Giants figures will appear larger in the upcoming game. We'll have more details on Activision's plans for the Skylanders franchise later today.

They need to find a way (obviously through DLC), of making it so any future figurines can work on the old game... I say this because my little brother back at home is in love with this game. Everytime I speak to him on the phone he tells me all about any new Skylander he's got or what new ability he's unlocked, and I don't think it's fair on parents (specifically mine) to shell out so much money for something that THEY will think will last a long time, bu actually becomes obselete when a new game comes out. I know the old Skylanders will work on a new game, but that just isn't really fair. These are expensive figurines and should work on every damn game in the series.
