So, out of the eight Giants in Skylanders Giants, which one if your favorite?
If anyone cares, my favorite is Ninjini.

At the moment, Swarm for his mobility. Other characters can charge, but they don't control or move as fast as the Air Giant. I'm going to get Eye Brawl and Hot Head afterwards to see how they play.
In terms of looks though, Thumpback is my fave. Had he moved faster, he'd easily be my fave.

I was going to say that Thumpback is my favourite, followed by Swarm, in part due to gameplay reasons, so... thanks!

I love the gameplay of Thumpback the way he is.

In my opinion it's a really hard choice between Bouncer, Ninjini, and Hot Head.

I would instantly say Hot Head if he wasn't so similar to Eruptor and/or the flames on his hand lit up. He's one of my most favorite characters to play, and I find him really cool as well.
However, considering what I mentioned earlier, Bouncer probably takes it. I have a very similar opinion on his looks and gameplay, but he's not TOO similar to anyone who came before him.

Honestly I love how all of the giants play except for Thumpback and Eye-Brawl, which is a little disappointing for me, considering I like both of their appearances more than Tree Rex and Swarm.

To give a full ranking system:
Appearance: Hot Head = Bouncer > Ninjini > Thumpback > Crusher > Eye-Brawl > Tree Rex >>>>> Swarm
Gameplay: Hot Head > Crusher > Bouncer > Swarm > Ninjini > Tree Rex >> Thumpback >>> Eye-Brawl
Overall: Bouncer > Hot Head = Ninjini > Crusher > Thumpback > Tree Rex > Eye-Brawl > Swarm

Eye Brawl without a doubt. His gameplay was both really efficient and hilarious. Easily one of my favorite Skylanders of all time.

Eye Brawl, hands down. Big strong brawler that can summon little minions, and when his head flies off and the body keeps fighting, pure gold. He was my first undead skylanders and still remains one of my all time favorites.

I love the pun in his catchphrase. "I've got my eye on you."

Thumpback. He’s just awesome!!

Glad heroic challenges are gone. Imagine doing 165 per skylander. That's 27225 challenges. No thank you.

I've put some bids on a Ninjini figure (shortly after seeing some boxed versions for the same price as the unboxed version RAAAAAAAA), so I hope to give her a shot next week. Unless I buy a boxed figure. Not opening that. She'll be my pride and joy.

The sad thing about TfB gimmicks is that the make all the “gimmick-landers” huge. It made sense for Giants because.......I really don’t have to explain that. But the next two series of TfB helmed toys were about just as big. Unneeded, and cheapened Having the actual Giants.

I can see where you're coming from with that, but I think VV is almost as guilty of doing this with SWAPpers but they did cool things with the bases (especially swirly ones like Hoot Loop or Grave Shift). It's my opinion that they do this for marketing purposes - they want the more expensive gimmicklanders to stand out, and perhaps even roll out the excuse of "using more material than cores" if questioned about it. The Traptanium weapons should've been enough of an indication they were Trap Masters if they were the same size as cores (and the box clearly displayed that info). The Senseis look gorgeous with the amount of detail they put on them though. Just a shame about the bases, but they're large enough to hold the figure steady.

But yeah, at the time Giants looked and felt giant. Wouldn't say no to them having that feel again in future games! smilie

Scarlet Ninjini is my favorite but Tree Rex is a close 2nd. Also Punpkin Eye Brawl because... Halloween.
