Mini Figures Edit
Gormiti was released by Playmates Toys in the United States starting in December 2008 with an official release window of Spring 2009.
Each figure has a random number between 1 and 9 printed on the bottom of the foot. This number is used in the game play aspect of line. Each figure is packaged with a playing card that has a fixed number for that character printed on it along with other information about the character. The game is a matter of setting your figures opposite of an opponent’s figures, then adding the number from the foot to the number on the card. The higher number trumps the opponent knocking out his character. After battling the individual figures down the row of figures, the player left with the most characters standing is the winner. The official website, www.gormiticlub.com, allows for the entry of a code located on the playing card to unlock web content like screensavers and graphics.
