Ac­tivi­sion is look­ing to push player cre­ativ­ity as the big sell­ing point of the new­est Skylanders. To this end, Imaginators pro­vides hun­dreds of in­di­vid­ual dig­i­tal parts to build your own hero. You’ll be able to tailor their movesets, spe­cial abil­i­ties and catch­phrases, with fur­ther cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions un­locked through ad­di­tional fig­ures in the form of Sen­seis, each of which be­long to a dif­fer­ent bat­tle class. These in­clude a fire knight, a mil­i­taris­tic pen­guin and, on PlaySta­tion for­mats, Crash Bandi­coot, pre­sum­ably hop­ing for a Spyro-es­que ca­reer re­vival. De­spite be­ing ar­guably the best
