Skylanders: Trap Team
Skylanders Trap Team is a brand new upcoming entry to the Skylanders series, it is the followup to 2013's Skylanders Swap Force.
|Oct 10th 2014||Oct 5th 2014||Oct 2nd 2014|
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!
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:
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.
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.
|Water Tiki||Fire Scepter||Life Hammer||Magic Skull||Kaos Trap|
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:
|Shrednaught||Chill Bill||Grinnade||Wolfgang||Chompy Mage||Painyatta||Buzzer Beak|
|Krankcase*||Brawl and Chain||Broccoli Guy||Rage Mage|
Portal of Power
The newly redesigned Traptanium Portal of Power features a slot for the Traps and a speaker for the trapped enemies to speak through.
Skylanders Trap Team is scheduled for launch this October with Toys for Bob handling the game on PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii and Beenox on the Wii U, PS4, Xbox One and 3DS versions.
