Skylanders Swap Force Coming Fall 2013

With the announcement of new Skylanders Swapforce my boys have been absolutely buzzing about it!

Over the past year or so they have amassed a huge collection of the previous Skylander game characters and even though they have completed the game and levels many times they still continue to return to it over and over again. Now imagine this great playability with a twist; you can actually merge two of the new characters!
And I know what you are thinking will I be able to use my old Skylanders on the new game - well the answer is YES! Which is great news for any gamer who has a full contingent of characters.
Now with that in mind here is the official trailer of the next instalment from Activision:

 
So what new characters can you expect to see?
Element
Character
Fire
Blast Zone
Tech
Countdown & Magna Charge
Wind
Free Ranger 
Water
Freeze Blade & Wash Buckler
Magic
Hoot Loop & Star Strike 
Undead
Night Shift, Rattle Shake & Roller Brawl
Life
Stealth Elf & Stink Bomb

I think this is such a great concept for kids who love to game but what that bit extra, they get to have the physical characters to play with outside of the game. In our house we play massive wars with the characters, very often Eruptor and Hot Head lead the evil baddies! And now with swap force on the horizon they will be able to make their own physical combination. This kind of play is great for your kids imagination and inventive play which is something I happily support!

I asked my eldest if he could have merged his two favourite characters from the previous releases it would be called Thump Fizz (combination of Thumpback and Pop Fizz), I thought Pop Back would have been better!
