Finally confirming the rumours, Activision today released official information regarding the two new elements, Light and Dark, and giving the Element Expansion Packs a release date. In the United States it'll be on the 21st of December at Toys R Us, that's this Sunday!

And while they're already out in some parts of Europe they won't be arriving in the UK until Boxing Day, the 26th of December. And on the same day in Australia

They also gave us a glimpse at the other two members of the Light and Dark families: Spotlight and Blackout.

Unfortunately there was no accompanying release date for these core Skylanders.

You can check out a load of screenshots screenshots and artwork of all four new Skylanders in the Trap Team Gallery as well as last Friday's news post for images of the Element Expansion Packs themselves.

Thanks to German Skylanders fansite myskylanders.de we now have images of the as yet unannounced Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs and their contents for Skylanders: Trap Team.

The Dark Element Expansion Pack comes with the Dark Trap Master "Knight Mare", a Dark Trap in the shape of a Spider, and the Midnight Museum Location Piece which unlocks the Midnight Museum chapter.

The Light Element Expansion Pack comes with the Light Trap Master "Knight Light", a Light Trap in the shape of a Hawk, and the Sunscraper Spire Location Piece which unlocks the Sunscraper Spire chapter.

The Trap Masters will grant you access to the unknown element gates scattered throughout the game and the traps will let you catch the unknown element villains, which means that, combined with Blastermind from Wave 3, these will finally let you complete Skylanders Trap Team to 100%.

The exact release date of the Element Expansion Packs is still unclear but some European retailers have a date listed as early as the 18th of December.

Time for some wild speculation: Unlike the first two waves it is probable that this "wave" will be split apart and have each grouping release at slightly different times. The ongoing Frito-Lay High Five giveaway means that the Core Skylanders are not likely to be released until early next year but the Trap Masters and Traps are under no such restrictions and could be released earlier than that. Check out the full breakdown of what will be in the retailer's boxes including the restocks of already released characters.

And since they haven't been posted to the front page (keep an eye on the forums for the latest goings on!), some reminders about other recent and upcoming releases:

The new Legendary items at Toys R Us, including the Micro Comics with exclusive Legendary Traps, are currently in the middle of being released. Legendary Deja Vu and the Legendary Deja Vu comic were released yesterday, the Legendary Blades comic will be on Sunday, and the Legendary Jawbreaker comic a week later on the 16th of November.

The first two of the Eon's Elite collection, Elite Spyro and Elite Chop Chop, became available at GameStop this past weekend and the next one has been announced as Elite Trigger Happy, he'll go on sale at the end of the month on the 28th.

And finally, the 8 Pack of Traps with the variant villain Steamed Broccoli Guy is apparently due for release very soon at Target (with reports of sightings already coming in).
