Skylanders is a property that is hard to ignore in the toy world. All my local Toys R Us stores have had their showcase area dedicated to the collectible video game figurines. I have always been attracted to the designs of these characters. They're colorful, fun, and very diverse.. for lack of a better word. What I am not a fan of is the stationary PVC-on-a-base format of the figures. Basically I think they're cool character but boring toys. Luckily Mega Bloks has the license to produce their Lego-like building sets in Skylanders themes. Amazingly, there have been four female characters released already (excluding the multiple variations of the dragon Cynder). And I'm hoping there will be many more because I really dig these toys and there are many more amazing characters ready for the Mega Bloks treatment. I'll be keeping my eyes out for future releases. Let's check out the current four below!
