Story

The story and background for the new types of toys is as detailed below:

In Skylanders Trap Team, Kaos continues his ongoing quest to rule over Skylands. He has discovered the location of the legendary Cloudcracker Prison -- a fortress built entirely out of the magical substance Traptanium and home to Skylands' most nefarious baddies. In an attempt to build his own army of foes, Kaos blows up the prison, releasing the most wanted villains and blasting shards of Traptanium to Earth in the form of Traps. Now it's up to Portal Masters to recapture all of the escaped villains using powerful Traptanium Traps and defeat Kaos before it's too late!

Characters

All previous figures have been confirmed to work once again but of course there is a whole slew of new toys to collect. First to note are the 16 new Trap Masters, a larger toy that wields a Traptanium weapon and has an advantage when fighting the capturable villains. There are also 18 new core Skylanders who will join the fight as well as reposed fan-favourites from previous adventures.

Here are pictures of all of the so far revealed brand new Skylanders:

*Element unconfirmed

To help differentiate between the old and new sets, the base of the Skylanders for Skylanders Trap Team will be red instead of the green/orange/blue currently seen on the Spyro's Adventure, Giants and SWAP Force toys.

Traps

Another new toy added with Trap Team is the Trap. These crystals are made of Traptanium and are essential for capturing the various villains. Each Trap is of a specific element which allows you to capture villains that match that element.

When placed on the portal you can easily switch between the captured villain and your Skylander at the push of a button. Here is a list of all of the known villains and their elements:

Those new skylanders look... interesting, rocky roll looks like shroomboom but also cool and I think Ninjini won't be the tallest skylander anymore when Blaster Mind comes out
