E3 2014: New Skylanders Trap Team Villain Buzzer Beak

Here is our reveal of a new Skylanders Trap Team villain today. Buzzer Beak continues the Skylanders fashion of baddies with a softer side, and in Trap Team we get to see both.

Before he is defeated in the game he poses a real challenge to players with a hovering attack pattern enabled by his propeller hat and a fierce swooping move. However, once defeated he turns into a valued ally. As his tag line goes, players soon discover that his “chop is worse than his chirp”.

As you can see in the video below, he appears to be inspired from a variety of different animals, with the beak of a Toucan and the legs of a Chicken. This wildfowl side  to the trap-able villain reminds me of Free Ranger from Swap Force, and with good reason because they both share the same element: Air.

The villains function in Trap Team as a second set of collectable characters. Unlike the Skylanders though they don’t have a physical figure (which is a bit of a shame when they look as good as Buzzer Beak) but are instead collected in the game provided you have the right trap. Additionally, certain traps will come pre-loaded with special edition villains.

With E3 opening its doors on Tuesday expect a number of other Villains to join the ranks of Buzzer Beak, Wolfgang, Chompy Mage and Shrednaught. There will be over 40 villains to catch in the game each can be upgraded by finding special items in the game.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
