So, as we triumphantly break out our vintage, box-fresh Thundercats Thundertank, we should probably reflect on the huge success Skylanders has achieved since launching in 2011. The purple dragon’s spin-off toy-based series really ain’t just for the little ’uns, amassing impressive sales among many older PS3 players. But now, Buzz Lightyear and co are trying to muscle in on the cutesy lizard’s territory with Disney Infinity. (Disney Infinity, PS3, Skylanders, Skylanders: Swap Force)
