MMGN.com writes: I'd like to mention that before yesterday I had never actually played Skylanders. I was aware of the franchise, I knew how it worked, but I had never seen the game in action. What I didn't know is that last year Skylanders figurines outsold all other action figures, including those from the Star Wars an Transfromes line which are always insanely popular with the kids. What's even more impressive is that Skylanders managed this feat in only six months, while the other franchises had been selling all year.
Skylanders is a big deal, and after spending time with Skylanders Giants I finally understand why.
