Yeti Arcade: Skylanders Spyro's Adventure

The video game Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure (2011) features a four-armed yeti named Slam Bam. He's one of the main 37 playable characters and can become unlocked when you buy his action figure and put it on a special peripheral called a "Portal of Power".

Slam Bam's main claim to fame is his four violent fists. But he also has a creative side. He fashions ice sculptures to trap his enemies in and slow them down. Here's more about him:
Slam Bam lived alone on a floating glacier in a remote region of Skylands, where he spent his time ice surfing, eating snow cones, and sculpting amazing ice statues. It was a peaceful life, until Kaos destroyed the glacier, stranding Slam Bam on an iceberg that drifted through the skies for days. He awoke on Eon’s Island, where he was taken in and trained to become a Skylander. Now his ice sculptures serve as a frosty prison for any evil-doer that gets in his way.

My nephew is obsessed with Skylanders, and I told him I'd play with him if he found a Slam Bam. Unfortunately Slam Bam sucks. Or maybe I'm just blaming the character since it's a drag to be beaten by a six-year-old.
