I'm serious, Amazon has (had?) the starter packs listed for October 10th, 2014 with the title Skylanders: Trap Team, and separate listings for each console.

Wow, this is actually legit. See for yourself, maybe as you read this, the listings will still be up: http://www.amazon.es/s/ref=nb_...Skylanders+trap

I still wouldn't jump the gun and say TRAP TEAM CONFIRMED though as I've seen fake listings for items on Amazon before... (Crash PS4, anyone?)

Did someone say TRAP TEAM?

[User Posted Image]

Mm..the skylanderstrapteam.com website exists, but it looks like its just one of those random ones that has been registered. Looking up the WhoIs, it doesn't appear that the same company behind the other Skylanders domains; MARKMONITOR INC. is behind the "Trap Team" one which looks to be registered by a Web Commerce Communications, Ltd. I'm no expert at this kind of stuff, but the things don't match up to me.

Maybe someone who knows how to work the trademarks website can see if that was recently trademarked by Activision or whoever.

The only thing I am dreading about this announcement, is the fact people bash each new Skylanders game that's announced, only for those people to change their tune by the time the game comes out.

It seems to be a popular trend.

Tell me about it, man. Geesh... I get SOOOOO tired of folks swearing off Skylanders/Activision every time something new is announced, only to turn around and talk about all the money they've spent on the new stuff. It gets sooo old...

I'm dreading the opposite. People creaming over the new one so much they put down the others (already happened with the Frito Lays contest to name the new 'landers) until about at least a month post play.

The name is stupid and makes no sense. And I personally won't be buying it if there is a lack of an online mode. Disney will be getting my money this time around since they've got their heads in the right place.

I really wonder if the special interactive media invitations sent out are a clue as to what the next gimmick will be. I remember hearing one of the TFB people in a recent interview say that when kids see the new toys they'll say 'Oh, well of course it should do that!'... so I'm thinking maybe voice... or maybe some sort of interactive screen... maybe the screen will be a representation of a character 'trap'ped in the figure?

In terms of 'team' I'm assuming it's just to denote the group of figures with the new gimmick just like the Swap 'Force'. However, I would LOVE some sort of true teaming option where I can have a second figure be sort of a sidekick to my main figure and have him along for support, kind of like followers in Diablo and pets in Torchlight. This would be a great way to make use of the dozens of figures I have laying around just being collected. Say for example I'm using Spy Rise, I could then use Whirlwind and Flameslinger on my team. Whirlwind could provide an active healing buff, and Flameslinger could add fire damage to my attacks. Or I could set them to just be out on the field with me and they can auto-attack. Look up Marvel Heroes new 'Team-Up' mechanic as it's brilliant and works similar to this. This would really add a new depth to the game, something I've been hoping for. I know it's marketed to kids, but kids are smart and don't need games totally dumbed down for them.

#75 Posted: 11:46:42 18/04/2014
^ I really like this idea, each character could have their standard play abilities, and one team up ability. You could get some real use out of characters that simply don't get used anymore. Maybe the new portal will be more Disney like with two spots reserved to main characters, two spots reserved to team up characters and a magic item spot.

Trap Team? Lawd I hope that's not the final name. After having a character named Trap Shadow, that title seems especially wonky.

While I was personally hoping for KAOS Alliance, thus giving me the impression we would be playing as the bad guys, I won't automatically shrug off any new Skylanders. The only way I could ever see myself doing that, is if TFB/VV pulled a Naughty Dog and started making a cart racing game out of the property. In other words, I don't give a crap about cart racing unless it's Mario Kart. Skylanders should stick to what it's been doing, and IF they want to do something to change things up, it should be making the game open world exploration.

Whatever Skylanders 4 is, I hope we get new uses for the Swap Force. I really loved Swap Force zones in Swap Force.

If vehicles are involved in Skylanders 4, I think they'll be more like tanks, used for fighting. I can't see Skylanders go down the racing route.

Facts are for nerds... Trap Team is go and it's going to feature 700 new figures. They're a mix of SWAP Force and Power Rangers, where it takes five of them to join together to build a Trap Team. It's going to be all Kart Racing and... I dunno... Baseball-themed minigames thrown in for good measure. It's going to suck, but I'm going to buy all 700 figures anyway. And the 553 variants. Skylanders forever!

#81 Posted: 14:41:54 18/04/2014
Shouldn't it be called Money Trap? smilie

I've been very critical of their patching methodology, not the game itself. I've stayed true to my purchase constraints. This time around: no reposes or lightcores. Only new stuff for me. Assuming the game actually brings something new to gameplay other than a toy innovation....my #1 complaint is content and gameplay shake up and longevity.

My only real "rule" is I only get one of each figure.
I don't buy a re-pose unless I don't have the original.
I didn't get many Green base figures so this was good during Giants. When Swap Force came along it was a bit harder but the only figures I have a double of are Jet-Vac and Stealth Elf.
I have a mix of S1, S2, Lightcore etc depending on which one like most.
UncleBob Ripto Gems: 4565
#83 Posted: 15:51:26 18/04/2014
My "rule" is simple. Buy what I want. Granted, that's everything I can get my hands on... but still. If it's a rare variant, I don't stress myself out over it, but if I can get it with some effort or a little more cost, then yay. smilie

I'm with you on that uncle bob. I grab whatever I want or can get my hands on I try to get the really rare variants, but only if I can afford it. Lately money has been funny so I haven't been able to hunt like I'm use to, but oh well makes it even more rewarding when I get somethingI've been wanting. I'll be playing the new game be in line with it pre ordered and all that good stuff. I hope they do a rare variant with pre-order this time around. I love kart games I think that Skylanders could be really cool as a kart game, but that is my personal opinion.

So did anybody see the invitation came with a small wooden "key" that had a magnet in it?

I would lay odds it had an RFID tag in it too, but does this give us more of a clue? Anybody got access to the invitation and that "key" to examine it more carefully?

The fact that is already 3:18 PM in London right now means that they will get the info before tomorrows event in New York at 4 PM. They are having the reveal on the 22nd. So we should be seeing info later today for us in the states unless they have made them sign an agreement to not speak until after the reveal in the states.

The event started this morning, so I would assume there is a press embargo until some point tomorrow, after the time of the US event (or maybe even later than that). Wouldn't be fair to press outlets in the US if the UK had the scoop on them.

Well, previous games in the series have been announced before the actual reveal - SSA was announced the day before it was revealed and Swap Force was announced the morning of the day it was revealed. We might be seeing an announcement before the public event tomorrow.

I'm thinking he meant nothing is allowed to be mentioned online until after it has been revealed in the US. So if it starts at 4pm then by 7 PM it should have been announced or even concluded allowing everyone to release the info about the same time.

They may try to embargo it, but you know some idiot is going to leak it the second they find out. Pokémon XY was supposed to have a world wide release, but all it took was a couple people getting their hands on a copy for the info to get out. Sure, Nintendo shut down a few tweets and YouTube accounts, but as soon as they would, another would pop up. I bet it will be the same thing tonight.

Yeah I agree, I was hoping the info released in London today would have been released after the event. I have found nothing yet, so I'm assuming there not allowed. So I guess we will find out tomorrow night. Hopefully it's epic, with the way they have been hyping it up.

Except they'd probably black list you if you broke embargo. They can afford to lose journalists over retailers. They probably have a deal with one particular journalist (like every other year) to spill the beans before anyone else.
