Total fail . . . again! Looks like they might be putting more out there, but there's such demand they're being snatched by flippers, so they won't be available, unless you're lucky, even if they put as many out as the other traps. Still, just keep on trying . . .

they are putting a limit to one per account at amazon, i guess that doesnt keep them from making additional accounts to order more though. it will make my kids fight over it however

That's good. I imagine Amazon is on the lookout for multiple accounts. They could have friends shill for them, but most flippers aren't that sophisticated.

Just got back from Target: the B2G1 Free is only good on Trap Team (possibly only Trap Master) characters, despite the sign saying "all". You might get lucky with an override (I didn't), but it is not in their system. Made proper corrections on first post.

I can say for sure it's not just Trap Master only. I bought Nitro Headrush, the fire horse character, and the snake one from Trap Team on Sunday. One of the $9.99 characters rung up for free.

Wondering if I should get Deja Vu and Torch from TRU. They're fall into the "cute" characters category (like Chill, Stealth Elf, and Roller Brawl) which are the ones I like to play the most, but I heard the Trapmasters are the only ones you should be getting, as everyone else is pretty much worthless next to them.

Yea. The trap masters are now the only ones who can open anything. Which I feel was a big mistake on the devs part. They could patch this is there was enough of a stink about it I'm sure

Got a Kaos Trap (at least the order went through - I won't get too excited until it's in my hand)! Live on Amazon now!

Everyone has all the elements several times over by now, so what better way to force you to buy more?

I thought swap force did it better though. You had certain areas that were swap character specific and areas that were element specific.

This game puts all the effort on the trap masters and anything else is worthless. Hell even half the villains quests are "oh your a villian? Here have a hat."

What characters are the strongest in-game for Trap Team? I'm going to be gearing up for nightmare mode with my son pretty soon to try to get the platinum trophy. I got a recommendation of Tread Head yesterday, picked him up, and am building him up right now. Also got a recommendation of Bat Spin, but she doesn't seem to be readily available except at inflated secondary market prices.

 

Here's who we already are using:

 

Snap Shot

Food Fight

Funny Bone

Chopper

Sureshot Shroomboom

Bop

Terrabyte

Tuff Luck

Gear Shift

Knight Mare

Tread Head

Rattle Shake

Tree Rex

The Trap Masters are suppose to be the most powerful. Bushwhack and Ka-Boom look especially good, as does Wallop and Krypt King (if you can find him). If you have any in mind, and want to see how they play, check out a series on Youtube called Skylanders 101. In just a few minutes, he goes over their power upgrade possibilities, then shows them in action, with a running commentary telling what's good and bad about them. It's where I go when I'm considering a purchase.

Eon's elite figures are the strongest figures in Trap Team. They cost $25 each, and are sold exclusively at GameStop. By the time they reach level 20 and have all of their powers unlocked, they turn Nightmare mode into easy mode. Along with a Kaos trap that contains a Kaos that has gone through his villain mission. You will be so overpowered that it breaks the game.

I've always considered getting one of those, but they seem to pricey. Are the figures themselves any nicer?



#116 Zantra2  

Posted 21 February 2015 - 10:01 PM

The paint jobs are nicer, and they come in a fancy collectors case. They are also three times as powerful as the original version of the figure, and they have an exclusive wow pow power.

I have Magna Charge (Swap Force) and Wildfire (Trap Master) at LVL 20 - they were my favorite to play in Kaos Mode.  I only one or two of the 'regular' Trap Team figures tho, so I can't comment on those.

Do those only work in Trap Team?

They are on sale for $20 this week @ Gamestop. I'm been meaning to pick up Spyro with this $15 off coupon that's on my account

Is any particular figure out of this set better than the rest in game?

I put my light and dark expansion playsets on craigslist for $22 each or $40 for the pair as a starting asking price and some lady insisted that I was way over priced on them being used even with them being in pristine condition. Am I nuts or is she? Her offer was $20 for both sets.

 

*edit*

The money is not a concern to me and I rarely ever sell stuff. I thought I would be doing someone a favor by helping them find a semi rare set at a discount.
