Tread Head is a new Tech core Skylander making his debut in Trap Team. Tread Head was an orphan from the Dizzying Dunes who always dreamed of racing. One summer he found enough old parts to build his own bike. He built his bike his way with a focus on performance. Once his bike was finished he entered it into a local race, but the other competitors all laughed at his bike’s design. Since he had built his bike for performance, and not looks, he easily raced to a commanding lead. While in the lead, he entered a canyon and found a roadblock of Goblin troops! In order to protect the other racers, Tread Head pulled off the road and kicked up a bunch of dust that forced the Goblins to retreat. This allowed the other racers to pass safely. Unfortunately for Tread Head, it also meant that he would loose the race. However, Master Eon took note and offered Tread Head the chance to become a Skylander and to race over evil.
Fist Bump – Skylander Review
Fist Bump is a new Earth core Skylander making his debut in Trap Team. He used to be the sleeping protector of the Bubbling Bamboo Forest. However, he awoke when a bunch of purple Greebles came to build a new base in the forest. The Greebles used huge rock-smashing machines that cleared out the forest and chewed up the land. This made Fist Bump furious, so he used his enormous stone fists and hammered the ground with all of his strength. This created a massive earthquake that sent shockwaves towards the Greebles. This destroyed the Greebles machines and the Greebles ran off in a panic. Terrafin noticed this act of bravery and brought Fist Bump to Master Eon who made him a Skylander.
Well, it didn’t take long. Just two days after the release of Skylanders Trap Team and the Wave 1 Skylanders, Toys R Us has started to sell Trap Team Wave 2 characters. In the past Toys R Us almost always gets first dibs on selling the new Skylanders. So it’s no surprise that they have shown up at Toys R Us first. It is a bit of a surprise that it’s happened just 2 days after the release. If you don’t like the pay the Toys R Us premium for getting those characters early (though they often run buy one get one 40% off which almost makes up for the increase) you should start seeing this wave trickle into other retailers over the next few weeks. So here is the list of Trap Team Wave 2 Skylanders now available at Toys R Us.
Today 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.
Skylanders Trap Team is almost out, and we almost have the full list of new Core Skylanders for Skylanders Trap Team. We now know all 19 of the core Skylanders set for Trap Team. There are 16 base new figures, and three special named variants: Dark Food Fight, Legendary Blades and Legendary Deja Vu. It appears that all three Frito-Lay characters were always going to be characters in the game, but it was their names that came from the contest winners. It’s possible that by then end of Trap Team, we may learn of a couple more special named variants of the 16, but for now, this is all of the New Core Skylanders. It’s time to meet the Trap Team Skylanders: New Core.
