Skylanders? Are we talking about that awful Spyro reboot, but with Disney? Oh God please no.

Now THAT is going to print money! Have you seen how ravenous Disney collectors are? Combine that with a game that lets them interact with their collectibles, plus rare figures, trading events, etc. This thing will be a goldmine.

Exactly. Skylanders with Disney characters... Man, Disney is going to make some serious bank...

DIsney, please, for the love of God, get a competent team to do this. I remember Nick doing something like this when I was little, and it was pretty decent. However, most of their characters don't hold a candle to yours. This has more than enough potential to be a fantastic game, just put as much passion into it as you did Tangled or Princess and the Frog.

If the Kingdom Hearts characters are on board, I'm on board with them. If not, eh. If Star Wars is in it, I'm out.

... I'm okay with this. Depends on what IPs they use, but still - could, potentially, be awesome.

i'll never buy any of those things , but going with coins instead of full character 3d representation , that's not smart at all . Maybe i think that it's a little bit more exploiting a few people than skylanders .
