Basically what the Title says. What reposes would you like in Skylanders: trap team? What new characters would you like to see? Like to hear what you think! smilie

Edit: Got rid of the "Figures" in the title. We're gonna find out about stuff soon anyway! HYPE

Kill the repose concept unless it's a Series 2. Kill the lightcore concept unless it's of a Series 1 character that will not receive a core equivalent.We do not need 24 figures of repurposed crap. I will no longer support the concept.

It made characters available to the next generation of players - without reposes I would have half my amount of Skylanders. I'm on a budget and it's nice to have a prolonged time to get existing characters that I have missed.

News flash--there's no issue getting previous generation characters on eBay, or even places like TRU online. If you are on a budget the last place you should invest is in a character that has been reposed already. Chances are you can get the previous editions even cheaper online. I've seen $2 or $3 end prices. Why clog up stores with new versions of old characters when the market says this?

What I dislike is when there is a series 2/3 of a figure and a light core of it too. Why are there light cores anyway?

As a retired reseller - you're hustling backwards buying reposes, unless you REALLY like the wow-pow.

Just hop on eBay, search "skylanders lot", sort by "Ending soonest" and look at what pops up. I was able to get all 32 of the S1 figures for like $60 last year. For $150 I got carrying cases (plural, the big notebook things), most of S1, most of S2, and expansions along wiht copies of the game. I'm not advocating getting into reselling (its a fools errand to make profitable short of being super lucky), but buying off eBay is by far the best way to handle anything that isn't "new" for this game.

^Yep. I'm almost thinking I should do that moving forward and let someone else take the hit on the new purchase.

Assuming they have path switching and Wow Pows...sure---you can justify the price point. But not to pay more and get even less. As you may recall they did A TON of lightcores in Giants that competed with Series 2 characters of the same figure and they didn't sell well because lightcores didn't do anything more functionality wise in game except light up (and cost more). They changed it up in Swap Force to make most of them existing Series 1.

I think it was because they saw a custom Skylander made that way, purchased it and then decided to make the same kind of Skylanders for extra moolah.

Basically, a fan made some custom light up Skylanders back when SSA was the only Skylander game. Someone (can't remember if it was Activision or Tfsmilie purchased one of them. Suddenly, we had the light core figures. They're largely believed to have been inspired by this individual's handiwork.

Warning! Incoming rant and disaproval of S:SF (Skylanders: Swap Force).

1. S:TT needs to be more replayable than S:SF. I think S:G was the most replayable of the three. The levels were perfect length (other than the oracle), they were fun, and a LOT more challenging than S:SF.

2. Make the bosses harder and more memorable. SPOILER ALERT FOR S:SF IF YOU HAVEN'T BEATEN THE GAME (although, who hasn't?) Evilized Kaos was too easy to be considered a final boss. The only hard thing about him is trying to beat him w/o getting damaged. He and Mesmeralda (spelling?) are the only bosses I can remember from this game. Why? Because most of them were all boring and way too easy. But hey, at least they were more challenging than Robo Kaos (S:G final boss).

3. Make the game less childish. I know this game is designed for kids, but I think that they designed S:SF for 3-4 yr olds. The graphics are amazing, but they are too sunny and happy. Just one of the things that stops me from playing S:SF.

4. Put some thought into the catchphrases. THIS is the main reason that I shy away from Skylanders, especially Swap Force. Everytime you put a Skylander on the portal, they say their catchphrase, and it's usually really embarrassing to do when other people are around. The majority of the catchphrases are either terrible, unoriginal, random sentences, or just common sayings. For example, Star Strikes catchphrase is "Shoot for the stars!". That is just plain out unoriginality. Some of the worst ones is when they rhyme words that if you went up to someone and said that to them, they would think that you are crazy. Some prime examples are "Hail to the whale!", "Deal with the wheel!", "Bring the sting!", "Fear the spear!", etc. Although, some of them I think are actually creative, like "Be afraid of the bark!". It seems like they put more than 5 minutes to think of this catchphrase.

Wow. I spent way too much time typing that up. Nearly 30 minutes.

As much as I'd like another Stealth Elf & Chop Chop, and believe they're my favorites and I do, I don't want any S4's. I'd rather see every figure catch up and end up being an S3.

I definatly want to see LC Ignitor, S2 Suburn, S2 Fright Rider, S2 Ghost Roaster, and mybe LC Chop Chop & LC Stealth Elf rather than full reposes with wow Pows of them.

Now that the title has been changed I can say that the thing I want most in Trap Team is Sky Stones. It is a simple yet endearing game that can be expanded with more cards and more chances to play.

This is a very long shot but they could even test out online with multiplayer Sky Stones matches. Just ban all mics from the game and maybe offer some pre written speech like "Nice move", "Here it comes" and "Great match". Let the console keep track of win/loss ratio and the winner is presented with a new card when they win. In fact I would like to see this as their next iOS app.

Activision make it happen.

I'd still love a repose of Dino-Rang. Seriously, I don't see how people couldn't love a bulky reptile with a croc resemblance who speaks in Aussie twang.

...Wait, are we sure Dino-Rang didn't don a new costume and call himself Snap Shot already? Seriously, their niches are dangerously close in terms of characterisation (obviously not so much element and weaponry).

Every single character that has not gotten a s2. (excluding SSF)

Most wanted:
Ghost Roaster
Boomer
Voodood
Shroomboom - Check!
Flashwing

But if they do bring some from SF then I would want:
Wind-Up
Slobber Tooth
Pop Thorn

And s2 Giants (though it is extremely unlikely).

Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing. To me Skystones was tedious and just broke up the action of the levels. I'm not as upset by the flying parts, as long as they tighten up the controls and make it a little more refined than it was in Giants.

Trap Mistresses (or female Trap Masters). We need more female Skylander, and another ninja Skylander. We have Stealth Elf (regular), Ninjini (Giant), and Stink Bomb (Swap Force). So I hypothesize that there could be a ninja Trap Master. I love ninjas. And what does being "ninja'd" mean anyway?

All new Skylanders, including all Trap Masters, to have the option to switch different upgrade paths instead of resetting them. Not just the new Series 2, 3 and 4 figures, but the brand new characters from Series 1. Am I the only one around here who is tired of that issue?
