Put on your stompin' boots and get ready to fight off the crowds, parents. Long time Skylanders partner Toys "R" Us is getting ready for the imminent release of Skylanders Trap Team with brand new exclusive figures, discounts, and giveaways.

Skylanders Trap Team 'Dark Edition' Starter Pack Features Ultimate Kaos Trap 

Next Tuesday September 9, fans of the collectible toy franchise will be able to pre-order limited edition Legendary Series Skylanders figures, which offer alternate versions of Trap Team characters and packs. This is the fourth consecutive year the store has offered an exclusive for the latest Skylanders title, and part of the reason that it's now a billion dolllar franchise.

Teaming up with the biggest toy company in the country is a smart thing when you've got lots of toys to push, and these limited edition versions are always highly sought by collectors and kids alike. Not only do they look cooler than the standard versions but they also help you in-game, as well. For instance, the Legendary Adventure Pack Nightmare Express includes both Legandary Blades and two magical objects, a Hand of Fate and a Piggy Bank, that help you unlock a new level in the game.

Skylanders Trap Team Coming To iPad, Kindle Fire, Android Tablets

Toys "R" s will also be giving away a free limited edition figure via their Instagram channel @Toysrus sometime on September 13. That's the same day they'll be offering sales in-store, including a Buy One Get One 70% Off sale for all single figures and $40 off on Skylanders SWAP Force and Skylanders Giants Starter Packs- $19.99 instead of $59.99, a pretty cheap and easy way to get into the addictive series.

Along with all of that they're offering a Legendary Treasure Pre-Order Sweepstakes. Pre-order the game from them and not only will you receive a free Skylanders toy or accessory, you'll get a chance at winning some more prizes, like a $1,000 shopping spree, life-sized MEGA Bloks Skylanders or a Skylanders bedroom makeover. Where were these when I was a kid? I remember when Muscle Men was a thing.

Skylanders Trap Team hits October 5 for every console under the sun and will offer you many, many more plastic objects to fill up your home and make you feel loved.
