Do you have a kiddo obsessed with the video game Skylanders? You're not alone! And the Skylanders Trap Team is out with two new mini's and a trap just in time for Easter.
In October of 2014 the Skylanders franchise added the Skylanders Trap Team to their repitouire which already consisted of Skylanders Giants and Skylanders SWAP Force. With Skylanders Trap Team, players can take characters out of the game and place them into physical “Traps” that kids can take with them, effectively bringing the toys to life. In Skylanders Trap Team, you can play as a Skylander or capture Skylands’ most wanted foes and unleash them for good. It’s up to Portal Masters to find these villains and capture them inside the new Traps that transport the villains into the real world via the Traptanium Portal. Once trapped, players can return the villain to Skylands as a playable character. This exciting new play pattern gives fans the option to switch between playing as a Skylander hero or a villain at any time, creating fun and unique “tag team” gameplay.
Eggsellent Weeruptor is the first mini and he was chosen as this year’s official mascot for the Annual Dragon Egg Hunt! He's pastel colored and looks similar to an Easter egg yet fights like other weeruptor characters do.
Power Punch Pet-Vac was the greatest, most daring flying ace in all of Windham. He was given his magical wings when he was young, as was the tradition for all Air Barons. But when his homeland was raided, he chose to sacrifice his wings to a young mother so she could fly her children to safety. This act of nobility caught the attention of Master Eon, who sought out the young Air Baron and presented him with a gift – a powerful vacuum device that would allow him to soar through the skies once again. Jet-Vac accepted the gift with gratitude, and now daringly fights evil alongside the other Skylanders.
And to top it off there is a new trap, Bunny Earth Trap, which features a cute bunny-themed design. This trap is used to trap the biggest villains in the game.
