Skylanders Character Details Start Materializing


With the competition hotting up for the Skylanders competition, a fellow blogger has been putting in some investigative time into how the different Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure minifigs will perform once you take them into the game.

If you’ve not got your head around how Skylanders works my studio tour video should help. If you are up to speed, you’ll know that purchasing the right figures could make all the difference, both in the single player and multi-player experience.

My favorite is still Stealth Elf, but now I’m trying to decide whether to collect all the Life characters for the in-game bonus, or to pick and mix from the different groups.

Here’s the information we have to date on each Skylanders figure, as you can see the stats are starting to be released as well as some abilities. Some careful studying will ensure you can pre-order the rights figures (available from Amazon for $7.99)
