Activision has released assets and information on a new Skylanders character due to appear in Skylanders: Giants, an over-sized bee prince named Swarm. The above video shows off some of his moves, which seem to include a lot of slashing and shooting of stingers. Natch.
I haven't gone anywhere near Skylanders. I'm a little afraid to, if I'm being perfectly honest. I know who I am and what I'm capable of when I get locked into something with a collectible quality and there's just no way I could take on another addiction right now. There's also the issue of having to find a place to put all that stuff, but it's mostly the expectation that it would break me financially. It looks like a lot of fun for those who can maintain a sense of discipline, though.
