Leaked photo shows Crash, Tomba, and more in PlayStation All-Stars

Yep, you read that headline right. ANOTHER PlayStation All-Stars leak has surfaced, but on the heels of last night's official website screengrabs that all but confirm Sackboy and Raiden as playable characters, this one may have a bit more credibility.
This time, the leak comes courtesy of PSU reader akgamestar, who spotted the image online and shared it in our very own forums. (Image originally posted on Reddit.) The image, seen below, clearly shows none other than PlayStation icon Crash Bandicoot as the current selection in the game's roster. Is it a fake? We're not sure. Compare this image to the one leaked yesterday of Sackboy, and you'll see that the two match up quite nicely. Character thumbnails are identical (save for some shuffling and additions seen only in the Crash screenshot) and the angle of blown-up Crash seems to fit with the angle at which the photo was taken.
Additional characters can be spotted among the thumbnails, including last night's leaked Sackboy, platforming legend Tomba, Spike from Ape Escape, and what appears to be the original character portrait of Ratchet from his PS2 days.
Remember that all this must be taken with a grain of salt until official confirmation from Sony or SuperBot Entertainment, but with gamescom 2012 and another official reveal right around the corner, we might not have to wait long.
Sound off in the comments if you're excited to see Crash, Tomba, Spike, and Sackboy in the PlayStation All-Stars roster, and keep it glued to PSU.com for more details as they develop.

When this game was first unveiled , my top 3 were cole, sackboy, and nariko, so I pray that this image is true, but here I find myself really REALLY hoping Crash makes it. I know a lot of people share this feeling. Crash, Spyro, and Cloud seem to be the most requested characters. So many sales are relying on those characters being in. I honestly never heard of tomba until now (and I've read hundreds of requests), but i'm glad to see more ps1-era characters make it in. I'd actually be happy to find characters in the final game that I'm not familiar with
In regards to this image, as I've said in the previous leak, the image used for crash has been used previously, and the perspective can be changed with a simple tool in image editing software. Also, there are some rough edges around crash's arms and gloves. In the sackboy picture, you can clearly see some black squares in the "all-stars roster" as if an eraser tool was used. I doubt that the final product would look this rough. I really want to believe, but this image just makes it look even more sketchy.

I think it's a fake, Why Spike is like on PS1, and not like the new model in the leak?

Looks like Crash and Sack Boy are using different fonts. That's suspicious. Come to think of it, the character's name is Sackboy, not Sack Boy.

#7 is right, the text is in different fonts, and our LittleBigPlanet hero's name should, in fact, be stylised as 'Sackboy'.
