THIS IS BURDI KNOMM-KNOMM, VANQUISHER OF BANK ACCOUNTS. He’s also one of the stars of Skylanders Imaginators, which introduces custom characters to the mega-billion franchise.

“Since we launched the very first Skylanders game, we have received countless letters and drawings from kids all over the world sharing their vision for their own Skylanders,” said Activision boss Eric Hirshberg in the press stuff.

“No matter how in touch with our ‘inner kids’ we might think we are as adults, nothing comes close to the endless creativity that springs from the mind of an inspired kid. We’ve turned this year’s game into the ultimate blank canvas for kids’ imaginations so they can create and play their own Skylanders.”

In Skylanders Imaginators you can be your very own Frankenstein, picking and choosing every this and that between “appearance, powers, abilities, name, catchphrase, musical theme and much more” to create your ultimate Imaginator, and then save it into a Creation Crystal that you can carry around with you.

The game also adds a new range of 31 all-new collectible Sensei heroes who can “help train created Imaginators by offering a range of benefits including unlocking super-cool Imaginator weapons, providing access to special areas in the game, as well as providing Secret Techniques across the Battle Classes”. And they’re probably expensive.

It’s out on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and Wii in October. Start saving.
