Skylanders Giants new character reveal “Swarm”

Activision sent over a new character reveal for their follow-up installment of the wildly successful toy/game hybrid Skylanders. This character, dubbed Swarm, is a giant bee Skylander, and the handful of screen shots gives you a pretty good idea of how his size stacks up to the normal cast. Included below is a shot of the physical toy on the Skylander portal base.

Skylanders Giants is scheduled to hit store shelves later this year, and if the previous game and figures are any indication, it’ll probably be on the biggest items this holiday season. Literally and figuratively.

Check out the new shots, a small trailer, and an official bio from Activision as well.

Bring the Sting!
Element: AIR
Character Type: Giant
Bio: Swarm was once a prince from a proud race of mysterious insect warriors that had built their entire civilization inside a giant honeycombed pyramid. Growing up as one of the 9,000 members of the royal family, he was never permitted to leave the hive. But unlike his brethren, there was a magical quality to Swarm that caused him to grow much larger than the rest of his kind. No longer able to fit amongst the rest of his colony, the young prince broke the long standing tradition and stepped out into the open world – where his size and strength would be put to good use in the legendary battle between the Giants and the Arkeyans.
