Although the game is called Skylanders SWAP Force, there are only 16 true SWAP Force characters. These SWAP Force figures are held together in the middle by a very special proprietary magnet. This allows you to swap the top or bottom half with another SWAP Force figure.
If you're able to get your hands on all 16 swappable SWAP Force members you'll be able to create 256 different Skylanders characters. Let the swapping begin!
