Skylanders: Giants gets two new characters, first shots here

Wednesday, 23rd January 2013 12:02 GMT By Dave Cook

Skylanders: Giants is getting a third wave of new characters from Toys For Bob and Activision. They are Eye-brawl and Thumpback, and we’ve got screens of the duo and their figures here.

Thumpback’s Bio reads, “Thumpback was once a crew member of The Phantom Tide, the most fearsome pirate ship in all of Skylands. But the actual pirating part about being a pirate didn’t interest Thumpback so much as the benefits that came with travelling on a large ship. After all, his real passion was fishing.

“But when his chance came to finally ensnare the most elusive creature in the sky – the Leviathan Cloud Crab – he was pulled over board and carried off into the horizon. This was actually quite fortunate, because sometime later The Phantom Tide and its entire crew were banished to the Chest of Exile. Thumpback’s pirating days were over, but his legend as one of the first Skylanders had only just begun.”

And Eye-Brawl’s bio reads, “Throughout history, there have been many epic battles, though none more bizarre than the legendary brawl between the headless giant and the infamous flying eyeball. It all started with a staring contest, but with the headless giant having no eyes and the flying eyeball unable to blink, it soon escalated into an all out war as the two rivals fought fiercely throughout the land of the undead for over a hundred years!

“With neither opponent backing down, the two combatants were eventually struck with the realisation that if they were to combine their formidable powers, they would be a force to be reckoned with. By teaming up, the infamous flying eyeball and the headless giant became known as Eye-Brawl – one of the most powerful Skylanders ever known!”

Here are screens of both characters in action, and their respective figurines:
