Activision has announced that three new characters -- Hex, Dino-Rang and Wrecking Ball -- are now in stores, able to be purchased and used in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. New images of the toys have been released alongside gameplay vignettes. 

Wrecking Ball may be my new favorite thing.

These toys were already advertised on Skylanders packaging, as have other toys that are not yet in stores. I'm mostly interested to see if it's possible to get entirely brand new toys that we haven't seen before. Would they need to come with DLC? Would they require an entirely fresh game or expansion disc? These are the questions I want to see answered. 

Skylanders is a fascinating concept as far as business models go, and I still really dig the game. It appears that it sold damn well too, so expect to see much more from the franchise in future.
