For those of you looking for something more than just the in-game toys, from February 14th in the US specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals (including Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reese's Puffs, Trix and Lucky Charms) will have a pack of 10 Skystones cards inside that can be used to play a game of Skystones for real! There are four different packs to collect each with two "boss" cards included. See this forum topic for sightings and more details on the cards themselves.

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.
