We've got a fresh batch of screens from Gamescom in Germany for Activision and Toys for Bob's upcoming game, Skylanders Giants. The sequel to last years addictive hit, Skylanders, Giants adds new giant characters to the mix of this two player co-op adventure. Also new this year are light up figures, called LightCore, which are capable of displaying unique effects in the real world and have added benefit in the game world.
