Skylanders: Trap Team getting premium 'Eon's Elite' line

Skylanders: Trap Team is getting another new addition to the mix in addition to the toy traps. At San Diego Comic-Con, Activision announced "Eon's Elite" figures, limited edition versions of the original poses from the first Skylanders game, with a few extra bells and whistles.

Eon's Elite toys will get a metallic finish and a golden base, and come in special packaging with a display case with a 3D lenticular background. Inside the game, they'll be three times as powerful as other characters. Eight will be available in all, but only two have been announced so far: Spyro and Chop Chop. The announcement states they'll be available in limited quantities in GameStop and EB Games locations.

No price has been given for the line, but given the limited run and all the talk of premium Skylanders figures, we would expect them to come in at more than the average $10 price point for a regular toy.
