Here is a little helpful guide if you just want to watch a specific adventure pack’s story.

 
Chapter 19 – Midnight Museum ….. 0:12 to 3:55
Chapter 20 – Sunscraper Spire …… 3:56 to 8:52
Chapter 21 – Nightmare Express … 8:53 to 17:14

Dark and Light Element Expansions Hitting Store Shelves

Dark and Light Element ExpansionsI was in my local Target this morning and noticed that they had one each of the Dark and Light Element expansions for Skylanders Trap Team. Now a quick check of some other online retailers shows that most retailers have received some stock. Currently my local Best Buy also shows that they have some in stock. So if you have missed out on these two expansion packs, head on over to our Dark Expansion, or Light Expansion page and check out the Best Buy link and see if you can find one at your local Best Buy for store pick-up.

Trap Team – Mirror of Mystery (Chapter 22)

Trap Team - Mirror of Mystery (Chapter 22)Well, I guess it was random luck that we played through the new element expansion packs in order (Chapter 19, and 20). Today we jump to Chapter 22, as we decided to play the Mirror of Mystery pack before the Nightmare Express Pack. Conner uses Knight Light again, while I explore Ka-Boom for the first time. Watch as we travel into a mirror universe where everything is the opposite of what we have come to know. The villains that we try to catch are a Chompy and Mab Lobs. See if we can find them.

Trap Team – Sunscraper Spire (Light Element Expansion Pack)

Trap Team - Sunscraper Spire (Light Element Expansion Pack)Today the boys and I play the new Sunscraper Spire level from the new Light Element Expansion Pack. I play with the new Knight Light, which I thought was the first time I had played with the character, but actually I did play with him for a brief second on the Midnight Museum level. Conner starts with Knight Mare from the Dark Element Expansion Pack so we start with the forces of Light and Dark working together. Overall we found this level and boss battle to be much more interesting than the Midnight Museum. Give it a watch and let us know what you think.

Trap Team – Midnight Museum (Dark Element Expansion Pack)

Trap Team - Midnight Museum (Dark Element Expansion Pack)We’re back! You might think that once you beat Trap Team that you have nothing else to do. That’s never the case in a Skylanders game. Today we dive into the Dark Element Expansion Pack. It comes with one new level called Midnight Museum. Since it is the first extra level we are playing, it’s listed for us as Chapter 19. I’m guessing it will be a different chapter for you if it’s not your first expansion level. Either way watch as we use our new Knight Mare Dark Element Trap Master and Winterfest Lob-Star (as well as a few others) to tackle this level and try to bring down the new Dark Villain Night Shade.

Expansion Packs and Some Wave 3 Out Today

Expansion Packs and Some Wave 3 Out TodayDecember 21st marks the release of the Light Element Expansion Pack and the Dark Element Expansion Pack. It also seems to mark the beginning of the Wave 3 release characters. Toys R Us once again will have a temporary jump on other retailers. This morning at my local Toys R Us, I saw both of the new expansion packs, two new mini packs: Gill Runt with Thumpling and Small Fry with Weeruptor, and two new core Skylanders in Cobra Cadabra and Trail Blazer. I did not see the two new core Skylanders of the light and dark elements that were rumored to be out with the expansion packs. However, my local Toys R Us employee said they are expecting more characters on Tuesday or Wednesday and then again after Christmas. There are rumors of other characters that will be part of a Wave 3 release. Be sure to check out all of the possible Wave 3 figures that we have pieced together here. By early January we should see all of Wave 3 characters in stores.

Mirror of Mystery Available at Best Buy

Best Buy Mirror of MysteryI was browsing the Best Buy website, trying to figure out when they were going to actually have Wave 2 Skylanders in stock, when I was surprised to see the Mirror of Mystery Adventure Pack listed. It turns out that it and a lot of the other Wave 2 characters are actually now in stock now at Best Buy. They are not available for shipping but they are available for in store pick up (at least at the stores around me). So I was able to pick up quite a bit this evening. I placed my order through the website for in-store pickup. I would highly suggest this method myself. And don’t forget, you can support this site buy ordering your Skylanders through our links like that. But there are other reasons to order for in-store pick up. First, if the store is closed, you guarantee that they won’t sell out in the morning if you can’t get to the store right away. I did this on launch day and got some triple trap packs that seemed to sell out very fast. But tonight as I went into the store to pick up my latest order, I thought I’d check their shelves. Not one Wave 2 Skylander or Trap was on the shelf. Yet when I picked up my order they had everything waiting for me behind the counter. I believe they just got the stock in, but have yet to place it on the shelves. Had I just ran into my local store, I may have been sad to see nothing seemingly in stock. And then I would have had to ask someone to check the back, wait for people to figure out what they were doing or where the stuff was and in general it would have been a pain in to but to get what I wanted that way. So if you check the Best Buy website and find that your local store has the Mirror of Mystery in stock. Do yourself a favor, and just order it for in-store pickup. Wait an hour (usually not even that long), and go pick it up. It could not have been easier for me tonight. That said, look for our second Mega Epic unboxing of Wave 2 characters coming very soon.

Trap Team Wave 1 Skylanders

Skylanders TrapTeam Wave 1Today is the release of Skylanders Trap Team. As always we are presented only with a handful of figures available on Day 1. These figures are what we call the Wave 1 figures. Usually it’s a fairly large wave, and Wave 2 typically comes out before Thanksgiving. Based on what we’ve seen from pre-order information on major retail sites, and some rumors to what people have started to pick up in stores let me summarize what ‘might’ be included in the Trap Team Wave 1 Skylanders.
