Skylanders Trap Team Amazon Pre-Orders: Trap Triple Packs, Mini Double Packs, and More

Skylanders Trap Team Amazon Pre-Orders:
Trap Triple Packs, Mini Double Packs, Triple Packs, Trap Masters, and More!

First off sorry for the technical issues on this one...That said they were on my end and the video is fine, so enjoy the pics while I attempt to figure out what is showing...

I would like to think my dysfunctional mouse for the find tonight...I couldn't have done it without you.  I check Amazon and GameStop most nights, but was very tired and if not for the extreme frustration of having a single-double-quadruple clicking mouse I probably would have gone to bed after the Skylanders Trap Team Poster video uploaded.

There isn't a lot of new info here, but this is the first I have seen the "Trap Triple Pack" packaging...previously I had just seen the single packs, so it was cool to me.

I hope you enjoy it and more importantly take advantage of the pre-orders if that is up your alley!

Trap Triple Pack: Undead, Fire, Air
Trap Triple Pack: Tech, Magic, Earth

Anyone notice that Life and Water are missing?
Since they are in the Starter Pack we can get at least one per element...
That is a HUGE RELIEF for many players!  
Thank you Activision for making them all available at launch!

Skylanders Trap Team Poster Review

This video is just my way of covering the poster with you...We check out each Skylander and Villain as well as checking out the back side.

The #1 FAQ for the last few weeks has been, "What/Who are you most looking forward to in Trap Team?"  I will answer that and more in a coming series of videos, so stay tuned!

KAOS Doom Challenge in Skylanders Trap Team

Skylanders Trap Team
Kaos Doom Challenge Info & Trailer

Can You Believe Those Skylanders Losers Actually Caved In to My Demands?

SANTA MONICA, Calif. - SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 - Attention foolish human fools! Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), is officially announcing an all new diabolical gameplay mode in honor of me, Emperor Kaos, the most infamously evil villain in all of Skylands!  In my glorious "Kaos Doom Challenge," sniveling Portal Masters like you can feebly battle through increasingly difficult waves of my personal minions using your ridiculous army of Skylanders.

And since you obviously won't stand a chance, I, Kaos, will graciously allow you to build defensive towers and battle my fearsome allies using any of your Skylanders from your entire collection. However, when you bumbling Portal Masters utterly fail to progress past my hoards of evil underlings, the "Mystery Box of Doom" will be opened - which will then incomprehensibly spit out gigantic villains that will completely destroy you! And because I am both benevolent and merciful, I will even let you fools use any of your pitiful Trapped Villains to fight them.

And, should any of you so-called "journalists" need an official quote from me -BEHOLD!  "A recent evil study of a thousand trolls revealed that nine out of ten agree that I am the most powerful and impressive evil doer to have ever conquered Skylands.  Naturally, I had every tenth one banished to my "Kaos Doom Challenge" to test the effectiveness of my 100 waves of ultimate evil doom - and they were never heard from again. So let's just say EVERYONE agrees - I am the most powerful and impressive evil doer ever."  

And for those of you who absolutely cannot wait for your horribly inevitable destruction, the Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack will be available on a bunch of seemingly random days in October (October 5th in North America, October 10th in Europe and October 2nd in Australia to be precise) on the following exceptionally awesome platforms: Nintendo's Wii™ system and Nintendo's Wii U™ system, a variety of iPad®, Kindle Fire and Android tablets; Xbox One and Xbox 360 games and entertainment systems from Microsoft; PlayStation®4 system; PlayStation®3 system. A different, unique adventure also will be available on the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a world to conquer.  I look forward to crushing your spirits. With loathing and disgust.

Skylanders Trap Team Trap Storage Case from PowerA

What?  PowerA Trap Storage Case
Where Can I Get It?  Toys'R'Us Exclusive
What Does It Cost?  $19.99 plus tax
What Is Included?  Trap Case

First Look: PowerA Skylanders Trap Team Trap Storage Case

This was something I had wanted to see come to the market, but wasn't sure if it would make it.  PowerA looks to have recreated the Trap Box we saw in the original Trap Team Reveal Trailer.  Granted, this one probably won't be wood or made from the same prop-friendly design, but it will be functional, durable, and completely practical for Portal Masters looking for the best storage solution to Trap Team's unique Traps.

Skylanders Trap Team Toys'R'Us Exclusive Legendary Nightmare Express Adventure Pack

What: Skylanders Trap Team Legendary Nightmare Express Adventure Pack
Where: Toys'R'Us Exclusive
How Muc: $25.99 plus tax
What is Included: Legendary Blades, Nightmare Express, Piggy Bank, Hand of Fate
Stock: Pre-Order Now

Trap Team will have Adventure Packs and this time Toys'R'Us is getting into the action.  The Legendary Nightmare Express AP is now up for pre-order.  This AP will include Legendary Blades, an Air Element Newlander.  The Nightmare Express location piece kind of looks the same as the regular AP to me, but I know that the Hand of Fate is "gold" in the Legendary AP, so I am inclined to think there may be a slight color change.

Blades is available in standard form via the Nightmare Express AP and has been rumored to have a Triple Pack as well (so he should eventually see single pack release).  With the advent of Eon's Elite and so many other "special" characters, you have to wonder if the move to put Legendary Blades in an AP was an economic decision.  It will be interesting to see what impact this has on Accolades, or if it will be a moot point (think back to the Golden Dragon Fire Cannon at GameStop a few years ago).

What remains unknown is if Legendary Blades will wind up in a single pack release etc.

Nonetheless, here are some pictures:

Skylanders Trap Team Soundtrack

Amazon has listed the Skylanders Trap Team Soundtrack!

You can click here to view the artwork and tracks:Trap Team Soundtrack

The release date is slated for September 23rd, 2014 although that may not come to fruition.

There are 12 Tracks with a total run time of 28:19.

Here is the track list:

1. Main Theme
2. Soda Springs
3. Skylanders Academy
4. Know-it-All Island
5. Chompy Mountain
6. Chef Zeppelin
7. Rainfish Riveria
8. Monster Marsh
9. Dreamcatcher Theme
10. Lair of the Golden Queen
11. Sunscraper Towers
12. The Nightmare Express

The music is once again stellar in my opinion.  The scores in each of the previous releases has been excellent...I feel that has been a very under appreciated aspect to the series.

Skylanders Academy is the most familiar to me as I heard it at E3 and it sounds quite similar to past game's hub themes.

What is your favorite track?
