Starting today, Skylanders fans that pre-order Trap Team will be given access to a bonus figure. New character Gearshift (pictured above) will be offered in limited supply, and this marks the first time fans will be able to buy a tech element Skylander on day one. Those that miss out on this bonus will have to wait until 2015 to be able to grab her otherwise.
Skylanders Trap Team looks to be another solid in the Skylanders franchise based on what I saw not too long ago. The whole forcing your enemies to work for you bit is kind of cool, if not a little dark.
Trap Team will be out on October 5, 2014 for the 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii,Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
