Activision is following up last month’s release of Skylanders Giants with a second series of figures.

Wave Two, expected in the next month, will include three new characters - Hot Head, Sprocket and Flashwing - who will join the starter sets and figures launched on 19 October.

Giants is the sequel to Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, the surprise hit video game launch of 2011. The figures are used to change the character that a player controls.
