After a slightly blurry glimpse earlier in the week the official Skylanders Facebook page has provided us with a much larger and clearer version of the Starter Pack poster. Click on the image below to see it at full size:

The poster includes names for the four remaining unnamed Trap Masters:

  • Enigma (Magic)
  • Tuff Luck (Life)
  • Thunderbolt (Air)
  • Short Cut (Undead)

As well as names for several new core Skylanders:

  • Cobra Cadabra (Magic)
  • Echo (Water)
  • Trail Blazer (Fire)
  • Fling Kong (Air)

The only Skylanders we still don't know the names of are the three Frito-Lay Skylanders and whoever those four question marks represent in the top right corner.

The poster also lists names and elements for nearly all of the villains, including a couple of new "Super" villains Dreamcatcher and Golden Queen, but again there are two Super Villains still hidden behind question marks along with six of the regular villains.

In previous games the sidekicks simply followed your characters around not doing much, in Skylanders: Trap Team that's all going to change. Now known as "Mini Skylanders" the existing eight have been reissued and joined by a new set of eight mini versions of previous characters and they have all been promoted to fully playable Skylanders.

Each of the Mini Skylanders will be just as upgradeable as their larger counterparts featuring miniaturised versions of their attacks. The eight new Mini Skylanders are as follows:

Weeruptor, Small Fry

Pet-Vac, Breeze

Spry, Drobit

Bop, Hijinx

The eight previously released sidekicks will also be given a rerelease with a red base but your existing green and orange base versions will function exactly the same as the new ones. The Minis will be sold in double packs retailing for $13.99.

Kaboom, Head Rush

Also revealed for gamescom today was a new Fire Trap Master called Kaboom, we got a look at Head Rush's figure as well as a clearer look at Bushwhack. And couple of new villains, Masker Mind and Brawlrus, were unveiled too. Check them all out in the gallery and figure list.

Hidden away in a trailer for today's Trap Team on Tablets news announcement was a shot of the full character poster that will be included with the regular Skylanders: Trap Team Starter Packs, thereby showing off a slightly blurry first look at the remaining new Trap Masters, the new Core characters, a bunch of new Sidekicks based on existing pre-Trap Team characters as well as a whole load of capturable villains.

The names are not on there and there are still several secret Skylanders and villains marked on the poster so there's still a lot left to find out before the launch of the game in October. And perhaps even beyond if they intend to keep up those mystery entries.

Thanks to forum member ZapNorris for spotting the poster.

Now that Skylanders: Giants has been released I have begun writing my Skylanders Giants Walkthrough. So far the first five chapters have been covered to help you find all those missing items and collectables.

More will be posted each day so it should be complete very soon.

I forgot to post it before but I recently completed my walkthrough to the console version of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure with the expansion level Dragon's Peak. I have also now finished off the 3DS guide to the same adventure pack.

And with E3 2012 just next week (June 5th-7th), expect news about the upcoming sequel, Skylanders: Giants, some time soon.
