A cheaper version of Skylanders featuring Batman, Superman, Power Rangers and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is coming to market. Toy giant Jakks Pacific will launch its Hero Portal range this August. The portals cost £40 for a starter pack, while toys come in packs of two for £6.99 – well below its rivals. The products plug straight into the TV without the need for a console. The first toys include DC characters, Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with more to follow.
