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!

Love Potion Pop Fizz Sighted On The West Coast


Hey Addicts!

Looks like we will be seeing our second holiday themed Skylander appear in stores soon. Love Potion Pop Fizz has been seen in California in store. Unfortunately, they are not able to be sold as they are street dated for 2/1/2015. I found a few images posted on DS and Instagram of what Love Potion will look like in package and out. I think he looks great and can’t wait to add him to my collection. What do you think about him? Will you be adding him to your collection? I think he will be readily available so no need to stress about not being able to get him, but just to be on the safe side get him as soon as you can. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
