Two new Skylanders Giants enter the fray

Thumpback and Eye-Brawl

It feels like we've been waiting forever for new Skylanders Giants characters. The titular "Giants," who are rather large and expensive toys, are getting a staggered release schedule to increase demand.

Here, near the end of January, we're getting two new additions: Thumpback and Eye-Brawl. Thumpback is apparently a bit of a cad, seeing as how he was a former pirate gone good guy, while Eye-Brawl's backstory involves two seperate entities, a headless giant and a flaming eyeball teaming up to make the ultimate team.

Yep, sounds like a Saturday morning cartoon all right -- which is part of the reason why I enjoy Skylanders.
