One of the most exciting new features in Skylanders Imaginators is the ability to create your own Skylander. Using the in-game Imaginator Creator tool, you can select from hundreds of body parts, bits of gear, weapons, and more to make the Skylander of your dreams. Even better, your ability to create new Skylanders only increases as you open new Imaginite Mystery Chests with new creation parts inside.
