Here’s a nice look at all eight of the new Giants characters in Skylanders Giants. This may be old news to hardcore fans frantically looking for any bits of news on toys, but for everyone else you can see just how cool they all look.
There’s a Thumpback, a giant-ass whale that uses an anchor to fight. Ninjini is a ninja that’s also a genie. Eye-Brawl is a giant flying eye that’s teamed up with a headless body to fight as one. My favorite of all the Giants though is Swarm.
I talked about Swarm a little before, and I got to see more of the character during a recent hands-on demo. Each character has a surprisingly robust upgrade tree, and Swarm’s is the best. Some of his later upgrades sees him transforming into a swarm of bees and anything that touches him will get hurt, Plus, he can take the shape of an axe and attack enemies with it as the swarm of bees.
Skylanders Giants will be out on October 21, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, and on November 18 for the Wii U.
