Will the portal even be big enough to handle two Giants figures?

Staff
Edited by Crunchman

SO HUGE! Shit, I can't wait until they release those expansions to my Portal of Power so I can play TWO Giants simultaneously. OR, OR. Clip-on Skylanders that enhance the power of the Giants. Get me weapons that I can put on my Skylanders.

@Jeff: I bet they fit but not enough to sit flat, would that prevent them from connecting to the game?

Say what you will, the trailer was pretty decent.

I hope the figures are posable this time.

@Jeff: 2 PORTALS SON.

Hell yeah I'm excited also Trigger Happy IS the best Skylander.

Anyone else think that "Giants rule!" is a callback to Sunday?

Posted by RedRocketWestie

I'd be willing to believe giants are a one-at-a-time proposition. That seems like a reasonable limitation that still gives classic Skylanders a well-defined role.

Stealth Elf lifts his blindfold to reveal... another blindfold! *GASP!*

I hear they were going to call it "Skylanders: Patriots" but didn't after the Super Bowl. Timely reference! Right? I'll leave now.

So.. is one of those Skylanders gonna be Eli Manning? *rimshot*

@Jeff: From one of the product shots I saw online, it looked like the portal was big enough to fit one giant Skylander and one normal sized Skylander. I wonder how it will work with the adventure packs. Aren't those larger sized than normal Skylanders?

I love how this is no longer about Spyro just Skylanders they got their foot in now, so fuck Sypro.

I guess you'll have to buy a second and thrid portal then....

Trigger Happy was right giants do rule, that's why they won the super bowl.

Are YOU a big enough man to handle two Giants figures? That's the more relevant question. Are any of us?

Posted by metalsnakezero

Jeff should just link his bank account to Activisition so that it'll be easier for him to get the figures.

entire levels packed in with the adventure packs are only slightly bigger than the figurines. meanwhile the little power-ups are only slightly smaller. i'm guessing the skylanders giants will be bigger - just bigger scale to the normal figurines.

Alright....lets do this

When I saw the announcement, I just thought of Jeff's wallet.

That actually made me smile.

Instead of 12 year old kids, they should film a commercial starring Mr. Gerstmann.

Posted by wafflez

for some reason, Jeff posting this video is hilarious to me.

Edited by dulmonkey

Maybe you put the portal on the giant?

Posted by vinsanityv22

What's that sound? Oh, it's just Jeff's wallet, crying out in pain :)

I hope it's not a dumb dungeon crawler this time. Toys for Bob can make a good game, but they really should've made a platformer, an action adventure.

Game's coming with a brand new portal.

Skylanders is an evil game.

"Well it looks like this game is reaching....**blindfold**....new heights"

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Posted by Dezinus

It's kind of disturbing how many Skylanders' names I know. God damn it, Jeff.

Posted by Brendan

Fuck you. I will not buy these. I didn't buy Skylanders, and I won't buy Titan-esque ones that can pull floating islands on olympic sized chains. Nope. No. Nu-uh. No-no-no.

Posted by drowsap

Im kinda excited about this game should i feel bad about that, now I know how those guys that like my little pony feel lol. But im still getting it for my nephew not me but dam im going to play the hell out of it lol

Posted by artofwar420

Why am I so excited?

Posted by Dredlockz

the dude lifting his blindfold to reveal another one underneath, was so FUNNEEEEH

Posted by Tebbit

@Jeff: Is there any proof that Skylanders was in any way the #1 kids game of 2011? That was an awfully nebulous statement.

Posted by beritbunny

Well....time to buy a Portal of Power USB hub.

Posted by BR4DL3I9H

Number 1 kid's game in 2011? Where did they pull that stat from?
 
I like where this franchise is going. Although the overall cost is ridiculously expensive i do think that it is smart business move.

Posted by ComradeKhan
@Jeff: What if the Giants had portals on their backs so you could stack more Skylanders on top?
Posted by Nizzleworth

fake wolfmother?

Posted by fox01313

Definitely interested to see more Skylander stuff.

Posted by CyleMoore

@Jeff: Yes you can.

Posted by JimmyPancakes

That was a really good trailer. Glad I'm not a man-child!!!

Posted by JimmyPancakes

I am very excited but mainly because I like excited Jeff so much.

Activision's original press release touted it, based on NPD/Charttrack/Gfk data.

Here's a quote:

"According to The NPD Group, Skylanders Spyro's Adventure went on to become a Top-10 seller in North America and generated the greatest overall single-year sales, inclusive of software and accessories, of any new children's IP in North America, since NPD has been tracking the category."

This shouldn't have taken off so well, but it has. The price of it all is ridiculous and yet people are buying and approving of this :/
