What kind of game is it? Looks like either a side-scroller or a fighter.

After Disney Infinity effectively shouted to the world, "Yeah, well, we were GONNA' come up with Skylanders first, so Spyro ripped US off!", it makes sense that other kids' properties would keep trying to imitate it on a smaller scale. This would be a lot neater if wasn't limited to just Rescue Bots, and could keep expanding exponentially throughout the TF multiverse. Then again, while dedicated gamers likely still have room for a ton of Skylanders, TF collectors might have conflicts about buying every character in yet another style.

Here's hoping Blades' inclusion foreshadows regular minifigs of him and Dani in wave 2.

Blades is getting one in Wave 2, but comes with Dr. Morocco instead.

Boulder will come with Doc Greene.

Ah, so for all we know, anyone wanting Dani will have to customize her from parts of...Cody and Graham?

Looks intriguing... but probably not for my kid (he's only 2). :BANG_HEAD: Ehhh, I'm not entirely sold on the Skylanders idea to begin with, and I only have so much patience for non-transforming TFs! :roll:

My wife and I are pretty pissed they can't release more mini-figs! Granted, as far as I know, Rescue Heroes doesn't feature too many more TF characters than the ones that have already been released... but it'd still be nice to get some additional characters (even repaints)! My 2 year old LOVES these! And there've been plenty of older kids who have eyed these jealousy when he brings them into a restaurant. :roll:

These games are going to be really simple games for little kids, like kindergarten age. Probably about as good as the games that come on a Leapfrog system. This is a cheap plug-n-play game, not a big-budget console game like Skylanders.
