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.

Water Fire Life Magic Kaos

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:

Guys, I just got an idea. What if in 2 player mode you can stick 2 enemies in a trap? Then you could play as two enemies at once!

I'm not so sure if Gusto really is a fairy. I think he could be a djinn, or genie? His gut is huge.

@TTD It didn't triple because there was a single trap master on,either that was was the final timer,all the trap masters together that were already on the video extended the timer,or they just changed it.
At E3 plenty of people played the demo villains with trap masters and the timer wasn't that long.

I have a theory on gusts species... HE IS A FAIRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! think about one of his attacks is turning into a ball of electricity and in the middle is the brightest a.k.a him he shrinks down into a small glowing orb and discharges electricity. I know what you are thinking. "but he looks nothing like persephone". but maybe he is a male fairy that has been experimented on or more likely he is an air fairy

sorry meant gustos species

I'm going to guess that in the level you trap the chompy mage will be the same level you trap the normal chompy

@skylandsfan
Nice find, but unfortunately that information is false. The reason the timer was longer is because Lou had a trap master on the portal, when a trap master is on the portal the villain timer is tripled.

V I agree I am the page that shared that on Instagram but I found that I do not have any proof of.it though i have seen a picture of a bone chompy or at least something that looks like it

V Is any of that actually confirmed? Don't make sense why his timer would be longer just because he is the cost one, builds up hope that al the cool, strong onespecially later gave long timers only to get disapointed. And why a normal chompy and undead chompy? Sounds lazy in my opinion. We need proof of any of what that guy said.
