“Thousands of years ago, the Giants fought epic battles in Skylands but were banished to Earth. With a new threat looming, it’s time to bring them back to join forces with the Skylanders to defeat KAOS. Only you can put them on the Portal of Power to unleash their strength in the ultimate battle to save Skylands!”
The Skylanders in Skylanders Giants are many and all come with some unique capabilities: players are able to use the all new Skylanders created specifically for Giants as well as the older Skylanders released for Spyro’s Adventure.
The Skylanders in Giants are divided into different types:
- Lightcore Figures
Lightcore Figures are Skylanders that light up when used on the Portal of Power: they also have a special Wow-Pow in-game ability
- Giants Figures
Giants Figures are the biggest Skylanders you can find, twice more powerful than regular Skylanders. Giants are the only Skylanders that can be used in the Feats Of Strength special events.
- Series 2 Figures
The Series 2 Figures are Skylanders from the previous Skylanders game who have received new stats and abilities
- Legendary Figures
Legendary Figures are Skylanders wearing a gold armor: they come with increased Damage and Armor stats.
- Special Edition
Special Edition figures are the rarest and hardest to find: they look like regular Skylanders but come with different colors, designs and abilities.
Skylander are also divided by different elements:
All Skylanders figures will keep information about them stored inside of it, not inside the game: here’s everything that’s saved into the figure.
- Experience Points and Experience Level
- The “Nickname” that you give to your Skylander
- Upgraded abilities and Statistics
- The Hat your Skylander is wearing
- The Quest ranking of your Skylander
It’s also possible to reset all the information by selecting Reset in the Manage section of the Skylander Info menu.
Before starting to analyze all the new Skylanders of Giants, we have to mention the fact that all the Skylanders from Spyro’s Adventure can be used in this game as well: you can also level them up to Level 15. The only difference from Giants Skylanders is that the older SKylanders don’t unlock Heroic Challenges: you will have to use Series 2 figures to do it.
- Chop Chop
Chop Chop has been originally introduced in Spyro’s Adventure, released as a standard and a legendary figure. A new Series 2 figure has been released for Skylanders Giants
“Chop Chop was once an elite warrior belonging to the ancient race of Arkeyan beings. Like many of the Arkeyans, he was created from a hybrid of elements – in his case, undead magic and technology. Chop Chop is a relentless, highly-skilled solider who wields a sword and shield made of an indestructible metal. With the Arkeyans having vanished long ago, Chop Chop wandered Skylands for centuries looking for his creators. Eventually, he was found by Eon and recruited as a Skylander.”
