While we were doing the Tread Head review, we had some troubles performing Tread Head‘s Rocket Boost Attack. This is the attack that you get after finding the Soul Gem. Well it seems like we are not the only one to have trouble pulling off this move. Check out this video where I try to explain what to look for when performing this move, and give examples of how to pull it off.
If you have problems pulling off a move, or need help with the game, leave us a comment and maybe I’ll do more of these Tips & Tricks videos in the future.
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.
Toys R Us sent a special e-mail out today notifying people that, Head Rush, Bushwack and Tread Head were now available in store for Skylanders Trap Team. Apparently these Skylanders are only available at Toys R Us at the moment. But a quick check of the Best Buy website shows a couple of those Skylanders and a Kaos Trap. However they are not yet in stock. So if you really want these characters now, check your local Toys R Us, and if you wait a little while you’ll probably find them soon at your favorite retailer.
I just returned from my local Toys R US, and they had a lot more than what the e-mail mentioned. I’d say they had the full on Wave 2 Skylanders available early. I picked up:
Lob-Star, Head Rush, Bushwack, Fist Bump, Fizzy Frenzy Pop Fizz, Full Blast Jet-Vac, Hog Wild Fryno, Tread Head, and about 2 more traps per element. Toys R Us definitely has the most variety of single traps. Also, even though Toys R Us is the most expensive retailer, they are running a buy one get one 40% off on all characters, software and accessories for Skylanders. And single traps are buy one get one for $1, or about $4 each. Not too bad of a deal. And in case you weren’t counting, that is now all 5 of the returning characters that have been released. We’re only missing a magic Trap Master in order to be able to play all of the game outside of the “?” areas.Share this article!
