Skylanders Trap Team Wave 4 Revealed


Hey Addicts!

Got some awesome news from the folks over at myskylanders.de. Today they released a complete list of what we can expect to see hit stores when wave 4 comes and I’m pretty amped about a few things that are coming. Since their site is in German I took the liberty of translating it for you guys as best I could so here it goes.

We are looking at a projected date of wave 4 being released sometime in March. I’m not sure if that is the US release or if that is the projected date for overseas Portal Masters, but either way that’s good news to me. Looks like there will be six core Skylanders coming in wave 4 included are:

Core Skylanders

  • Echo-Water Element
  • Rocky Roll-Earth Element
  • Spotlight- Light Element
  • Blackout-Dark Element
  • High Five-Life Element
  • Batspin-Undead Element

Glad to see we will finally see High Five and Batspin hit US stores I’m super pumped to get my hands on Spotlight and Blackout they look awesome and I bet they play just as well as they look if not better. Two of the most anticipated Skylanders Trap Masters will finally be making appearance in this wave along with Single pack versions of the Light and Dark Trap Masters.

Trap Masters

  • Short Cut
  • Thunderbolt
  • Knightmare
  • Knightlight

I just realized about a week ago that Short Cut was a Trap Master. I was already excited to add him to my collection when I first saw him, but after finding out he was a Trap Master I wanted him even more. Thunderbolt looks so BOSS he is definitely a must have for me I want to see how well he plays his attacks look sick! We will be seeing another wave of traps as well included are:

Traps

  • Rocket Light Trap
  • Rocket Magic Trap
  • Sword Shadow Trap
  • Sword Air Trap
  • Sword Life Trap
  • Upside Down Guy Shadow Trap
  • Upside Down Guy Earth Trap
  • Spear Fire Trap
  • Spear UndeadTrap
  • Axe Water Trap
  • Kaos Trap

Also listed are 2 Triple Pack Trap Packs do not know what will included in the packs, but I’m sure it will be the same as it has been released in earlier waves as a way to save a little cash and get more traps. Those of you that do not have a Kaos trap (I need another one) will have another chance at getting this hard to get trap before it becomes unavailable again. I’m sure there will be more Kaos traps in the wave but you still will want to get to your local stores early when they go on sale.

There are two new mini packs coming as well included in these packs are:

Mini Skylanders

  • Pet Vac (Jet-Vac)-Air Element
  • Breeze (Whirlwind)-Air Element
  • Barkley (Tree Rex)-Life Element
  • Whisper Elf (Stealth Elf)-Life Element

We will also see more of Mini Pack 5 (Gill Runt & Thumpling) and Mini Pack 6 (Small Fry & Weeruptor). There are some things expected to be released as well but not in wave 4 they will have their own separate releases or come in a mini wave. We already know about Nitro Head Rush, Legendary Bush Whack, and Love Potion Pop Fizz, but who else is coming? Here is a list of things we should see from now until at least April.

  • Enigma
  • Gearshift
  • Flip Wreck
  • Fling Kong
  • Triple Pack (Deja Vu / Rocky Roll / echo)
  • Triple Pack (Blackout / Fling Kong / Pop Fizz)
  • King Cobra Cadabra
  • Gnarly Barkley
  • Yawn Trap
  • Praise Goblin (Trap Variant)
  • Steampunk Shrednought (Trap Variant)
  • Eon’s Elite: Eruptor & Gill Grunt

I’m glad to see Gear Shift will be getting another run she is still around in some stores, but it will make her more available for those of us that haven’t gotten her yet (I need another one of her too lol). I so hope Enigma comes out in a mini wave-like a 4.5 or something I have to have him on my portal asap! Also mentioned in the article are the Easter Edition Trap Team figures, but I’m going to do a separate post about these as I feel they deserve to have a post just about them. I do not have an exact release date on any of this stuff just projected dates or a figure and trap case break down or anything like that, but when I get the info trust and believe I’ll be letting you know. Take a minute to show us some love on our social sites I love to see what new things you all are adding to your collections, game tips, or just shoot the breeze (Pun intended). Thanks to MySkylanders.De for giving us this awesome info. Happy Hunting All! Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

Wave 3 Spotted At Target Stores On The West Coast


Hey Addicts

It seems that we may be getting Wave 3 Trap Masters & Core Skylanders along with the Light & Dark Expansion packs. Target stores on the West Coast have been said to have them stocked and ready to go at a few different locations. Toys R Us will be the only store with the Light & Dark expansion packs in the US as they have exclusivity for a few weeks. Quantities will be limited but don’t worry stores will begin getting more stock in after the holidays. If you just gotta have them though then I would be stalking the stores lol! I predict these are going to go very fast. Some Australian Portal Masters already have gotten their hands on Wave 3 figures as they are available now at Big W, EB, and Target. Tomorrow UK Portal Masters will be able to get their hands on Wave 3 but they will have to wait until January 16th to get the Light & Dark Expansion packs. Take a look at the pics in the gallery thanks to dark spyro reader blackmass and fellow addict from down under Caine Talbot for posting the original photos. I wish you all the best of luck in the battlefield and my you all get home victorious. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

SKYLANDERS UNLEASHES TWO NEW ELEMENTS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FRANCHISE HISTORY

New Light and Dark Element Trap Master Skylanders to be Included in Special

Element Expansion Packs This Holiday Season

Never-Before-Seen Elemental Zones and Villains Now can be Accessed and Captured in

Skylanders Trap Team

 

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Dec. 17, 2014 – For the first time since the launch of theSkylandersÂŽ franchise, two entirely new elements – Light and Dark – will be unleashed in the world of Skylands, announced Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI). Two new Trap Masters, Knight Mare and Knight Light, will hit store shelves nationwide this holiday season via special Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs, ushering in new adventures in the lore of SkylandersÂŽ Trap Team. Each Element Expansion Pack contains a Trap Master, a special Trap capable of capturing either Light or Dark villains, as well as a location piece that unlocks a special level in the game. The Light and Dark Element Expansion Packs will be available at all major retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99. Lucky Skylanders fans will be able to get their hands on copies of the Light Element Expansion Pack, which will be available first at Toys”R”UsÂŽ stores nationwide starting Sunday, December 21.

Portal Masters will have the opportunity to explore new levels within theSkylanders Trap Team universe, where they will find never-before-seen villains to capture and environments to explore. Amongst these villains are Luminous and Nightshade, who belong to the Doom Raiders – the elite members of Kaos’ army of Skylands’ most notorious bad guys.

“It’s amazing to see how deeply engrossed and fascinated our fans have been with the lore of the Skylanders franchise,” said John Coyne, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Activision Publishing, Inc. “By unveiling new Light and Dark elements and heroes to the Skylanders universe, our fans around the world will have new ways of exploring all the magic, excitement and fun of Skylands.”

The introduction of Light and Dark elements reveals additional back story of the Skylanders universe for fans to explore. Long ago, Knight Light and Knight Mare were both protectors of Skylands until being sealed off in other realms. Now that they have joined the Trap Masters, Knight Light wields his Traptanium Blade and Knight Mare unleashes her deadly Traptanium Lance to bring down evil everywhere!

There are images popping up on the Internet of the Wave 3 Trap Masters at Walmart stores on the West Coast as well as the expansion packs. Blackout and Spotlight look amazing! Who are you excited to play with the most? Team Light or Team Dark? Take our poll and let us know what side you are on. To get a closer look at these beautiful figures check out the video and the images in the gallery below. Until next time I will catch you on the SKYSIDE! BOOM!

Wave-3-Review

Hey Addicts!

This weekend is going to be legen… wait for it… dary! According to my sources Toys R Us stores have received shipments of Wave 3 cases. I also have been told that this wave is set to be released this Sunday 12/21/14. Can we expect to see Trap Masters Blastermind, Ka-Boom, and Tuff Luck in this weekends release? One of my sources says yes another source says TRU will not be receiving the Trap Masters or Core Skylanders before the holidays only the Light Element Packs.

I sure hope the latter isn’t the case there would be a lot of sad Portal Masters out there this holiday season. Be on the lookout for the TRU Hot Toy Alert coming to an email near you. I’m super excited to get my hands on Knightlight he looks so epic! Well that is all the info I have at the moment check out the images in the gallery of the Trap Masters & Core figures as well as the video review of the figures. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!

New Characters From Light & Dark Elements Revealed


Hey Addicts,

I recently posted about the Nintendo 3DS release of Skylanders Trap Team. There were some images within that post that let us know there were two new elements Light and Dark or Darkness and Brightness. What we didn’t know is what new Skylanders would be apart of these new elements. Well recently Matteomax from darkspyro.net posted a link to a French website that ran an article about the new elements and the names of the new characters. According to the article the new elements are “mini elements” due to them having only two characters in each element and the names of the new characters are Blackout and Spotlight.

Blackout is the Dark character and from what I can understand he is a core character that is a quadruped or four-legged creature that uses multi-directional shade or shadows and vortexes.

Spotlight is the Light character that is also a quadruped but it uses rings and lasers that work much like Prism Breaks beams.

There are also two other characters but we don’t know their names. The Dark elemental is a Centaur that wields a big sword and the Light elemental is a Guardian Angel/Warrior character. Both are believed to be Trap Masters but we don’t have anything official stating that yet. If you follow the Skylander Dad he did a video that showed a concept of an angel character that possibly is the Light character that is talked about in the article.

The article is written in French so my only understanding is what Google translator shows me. We do not know what these creatures will be but some have speculated that they will be spider-creatures others are hoping for hybrid dragons among other things. Whatever they are I know they will be cool and I can’t wait to see them in action. We still do not know what Villains or Doom Raiders will be in the Dark and Light elements but I’m sure we will find out soon.

For those of you that can understand French and want to see the article for yourself here is a link. Until next time catch you on the SKYSIDE!

UPDATE:

Thanks to darkspyro admin dark52 we now have basic conformation on the names of the Light and Dark Skylanders. According to the Walmart website Blackout and Spotlight are core characters priced at $9.99 and Knight-Light and Knight-mare are Trap Masters priced at $14.99. Knight-Light is the Angel Warrior and Knight-Mare is the Centaur creature. Thanks to dark52 for finding out this info.
