Toys For Bob Wins 2012 BAFTA Award

<sarcasm>
“Logic would indicate that a pattern is emerging and that you might hear something from us in Toy Fair 2013. I can neither confirm nor deny that fact.”

Conclusion

Congratulations, Toys for Bob, for winning a BAFTA award for 2012 Children’s Video Game. Although, I admit, I haven’t watched BAFTA or kept track of it until now.

I’m not sure if or how many categories Skylanders will be nominated for in 2013 and I wish TFB the best of luck in winning another BAFTA award. I’d love to hear Paul’s acceptance speech.

Paul’s sarcastic tone of voice about a Skylanders sequel may be one of the most predictable rumors since the iPhone 5s.

Is it just me or is Call of Duty being mentioned on an occasional basis whenever Skylanders is being mentioned?

What do you think about Skylander’s TFB nominations?
