Skylanders SWAP Force Countdown Noscale

Skylanders Swap Force, the latest entry in the hugely successful toy-based Activision series, is getting ever closer to its October release on Wii U, Wii, 3DS and other consoles. As it approaches we can look forward to details on what new figures will be available and in what waves, though it seems that a combination of trigger-happy retailers and Comic-Con have already started to leak details.

Andy Robertson, Nintendo Life contributor and the man behind FamilyGamerTV, has collated information from retailer and unofficial pictures from Comic-Con to piece together what seem to be 14 new figures on their way in Swap Force, as well as some details on packs.
