Video game stores everywhere are forced to carry action figures this Sunday, when Activision releases the toy-powered Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. In the meantime, check out what Activision unleashed all over my computer desk today.

What you see here is a dozen carded Skylanders action figures, starter packs for the Wii and Xbox 360 (to test cross-platform functionality), and a starter kit for the 3DS, which includes the exclusive Dark Spyro figure and an entirely different adventure from its console and PC cousins. The starter kits run $69.99 for consoles and 3DS and $59.99 for PC. The figures retail for $7.99 ($19.99 for three-packs), and there are adventure kits that contain a figure and additional game content for $19.99 a piece.

The action figure collector in me is wincing at the prospect of having to open all of these. The kid in me is just a little bit overjoyed.

I really like this idea, the figures are a little expensive though, but my favorite part is you can go to a friends place and plop down your character on the stand next to theirs, pick up a controller, and your character data is stored in the figure so it is perfect drop-in/drop-out co-op. Least that is the way I read it a while back around E3.
