How Rare Is My Skylander – Part 4

There are some hardcore collector’s out there who like differentiate between chase variants, in-game variants, store exclusives and the like. That’s not me.

As (I hope) you’ve noticed here on SCL, I like to keep things simple. This is why I stick with the label of Variants. These are figures that VARY in some form or fashion from their base figure release with the game. I’m focusing more on the figures and less on their relationship to the game.

With that being said, here’s Part 4…

PART 4 – Skylanders: Trap Team (STT) Variants

Trap Team has given us the fewest number of Chase Variants to date. For collectors this is actually a huge sigh of relief. So I will cover them briefly, but I will also cover the In-Game Variants as I usually do.

Clear Short Cut

Clear Short Cut

Clear Short Cut was found right about the same time as Clear Thunderbolt. They were released in Wave 4 of Trap Team which hit most stores in March of 2015.

While Chase Variants like this one are always considered rare, expensive, and hard-to-find, it should be noted that this is one of only three Chase Variants in Skylanders Trap Team.

Clear Tuff Luck - Trap Master

Clear Tuff Luck

Clear Tuff Luck was the first Chase Variant to be discovered during the Trap Team release. It was first discovered in late December at a Toys R Us in the UK.

Since that time a few more have been found across Europe as well as the United States.

This was the first of the three Clear variants released for Trap Team.

Dark Food Fight

Dark Food Fight

Dark Food Fight is one of three Dark Skylanders available in Trap Team. All three figures come in the Dark Edition (Collector’s Edition) Starter Pack.

If you recall, there was a Dark Edition for SWAP Force which was exclusive to GameStop. However, this time around the Dark Edition was NOT exclusive. So this figure was readily available for the first few months after release if you were willing to pick up the Dark Edition.

Now the Dark Edition is sold out at most locations, but you can find the Dark Skylanders individually from resellers for a reasonable price.

Eggscellent Weeruptor

Eggsellent Weeruptor

Eggsellent Weeruptor was one of three figures/Traps that received the special Spring Edition packaging this year.

While they are labeled as Spring Edition, they are designed to look like Easter eggs and they are released shortly before Easter.

As with most seasonal variants, Eggsellent Weeruptor was available from all major retailers and was quite plentiful for a week or two. Now you may still find one or two that got returned or stuck in the warehouse, but they are basically sold out.

Gnarly Barkley

Gnarly Barkley

Gnarly Barkley is a combination of the Mini Barkley and the variant Gnarly Tree Rex that was released during Skylanders Giants.

While not specifically marked, this was a Toys R Us Exclusive figure. The packaging simply indicates that it is a Special Edition. It is assumed that this was always intended to be a store exclusive, but at the time of production they were still unsure as to which store would get the rights.

Gnarly Barkley came out late in the release cycle, but was readily available for a few weeks at most Toys R Us locations. Most stores have since sold out and I would not expect this figure to be replenished.

King Cobra Cadabra

King Cobra Cadabra

While this will probably turn out to be a little known trivia fact in the near future, King Cobra Cadabra is actually a GameStop Exclusive. However, just by looking at the figure or the packaging there is no way to tell this. Unlike Gnarly Barkley, it doesn’t even have a “Special Edition” marking.

King Cobra Cadabra was the last figure to be released for Skylanders Trap Team.

In the US it was a GameStop Exclusive and each location only received 4-12 of this figure so naturally most locations sold out on the day of release. It seems to have gotten a larger release in other countries.

Legendary Blades

Legendary Blades

Legendary Blades is exclusive to Toys R Us.

In addition to being exclusive to one store, Legendary Blades is exclusive to the Legendary Nightmare Express Adventure Pack. While there should be plenty of stock available at Toys R Us, you must buy a specific pack to get this figure at the retail level.

Love Potion Pop Fizz

Love Potion Pop Fizz

Love Potion Pop Fizz was a seasonal variant that was released to all major retailers shortly before Valentine’s Day.

As I hope you have come to expect with seasonal variants, it was readily available for a week or two, but now most locations are sold out although you may still find a few stragglers.

Nitro Head Rush

Nitro Head Rush

Nitro Head Rush is exclusive to Target. She is only available in a Single Pack.

This was the second Target Exclusive Nitro variant released during Trap Team.

I’m not sure if people didn’t like the design or if this was a side effect of the general lack of popularity that regular Head Rush showed, but Nitro Head Rush did not fly off the shelves.

While these figures were released relatively early, many stores still have Nitro Head Rush in stock. This is a bit of an anomaly as far as Target Exclusive Skylanders go, but I guess this just means that you will have a better chance of landing an in-game variant at retail price.

Nitro Krypt King

Nitro Krypt King

Nitro Krypt King is exclusive to Target. He is only available in a Single Pack.

As usual with Target Exclusive figures he was readily available at first launch but became scarce within a week or two.

Power Punch Pet Vac

Power Punch Pet Vac

Power Punch Pet Vac was one of three figures/Traps that received the special Spring Edition packaging this year.

While they are labeled as Spring Edition, they are designed to look like Easter eggs and they are released shortly before Easter.

As with most seasonal variants, Power Punch Pet Vac was available from all major retailers and was quite plentiful for a week or two.

Out of the three Spring Editions, this figure was available for the longest period of time in stores. This is probably due to the fact that the figure was the only one of the three that did not resemble Easter in any way. Without the packaging there is no reason this should be a Spring Edition figure.

Winterfest Lob-Star

Winterfest Lob-Star

Winterfest Lob-Star was the first seasonal variant to be released with Trap Team. It was first made available in December of 2014 at all major retailers.

Most stores just received one shipment of this figure so once they’re sold out that’s all there is. Like other seasonal variants, Winterfest Lob-Star was sold out of most stores within a month.
