So I'm assuming combined mode is maybe about the size of a Deluxe? Can't wait until these three come out, and now I've got my hopes up for a Flywheels. ;)

It's Powerlinking of sorts. It helps distract from the fact Roadtrap basically sticks his head up Battleslash's butt.

wooooooohooo - think they did an awesome job - the fact they took the original toys, updated them and added something... It's not exactly how the duocons worked but it's pretty cool they have 2 characters

I remember hating battle trap when I first received him as a kid. Thought he was too simple and lacking the fun I had transforming the others. But as time went by I warmed up to him and also got flywheels.

Must admit, after beachcomber these guys are the figures I'm most excited about from the POTP line thus far.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

Transformers Power of the Primes Legend Duocon Battletrap confirmed

Postby Va'al » Thu Dec 28, 2017 6:41 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
A brief update to our previous story on the second wave of Legends class figures from the Transformers Power of the Primes toyline, and thanks again to Planet Iacon's Facebook page mirroring from the original source. Apparently, the new molds for Roadtrap and Battleslash figures can indeed combine, making the G1 Duocon homage complete - though we still have no idea whether Flywheels will be made or appear in any form in the future. The speculation is up to us now.

Take a look at the images below, showing how they form the two parts of the bigger robot - our friend Battletrap - and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

This is the wave I've been most looking forward to so I wont be surprised at all if it doesn't show up in my area. Hopefully Battleslash survives longer than the G1 helicopter half I had as a kid which exploded one time when I combined the two halves. Now I wonder what they'll call the two halves of Flywheels?

BTW, the one local Walmart that's had the wave 1 Legends for a week and a half now still has four Windchargers, one Shrapnel and nothing else. Not a good sign for 'Charger.

Battletrap is one of the coolest things that could happen in this line. If the helicopter propeller can be used as a sword, he’ll be my favorite thing of all of 2018.

Bring on Flywheels!

Well at least that Battletrap shows a lil more creativity. And the combined form is a very nice upgrade for him (I reeeeally didn't like that recent one using the Springer mold...) but having to buy two lil figures to basically make the old character is a tad irritating and I don't find the individual robots very appealing at all.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot).
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

Now, I know this may be jumping ahead a bit...but, even though the Legends Battleclash & Roadtrap combiner (Battletrap) is not reversible...I wonder if they will be engineered to be able to *swap* with the Flywheels components? I'm thinking similar to Sky Shadow & Overlords ability to swap pants ;) :-? .

Well, Battletrap surprisingly managed to live up to my expectations. Its quite an interesting remake of the Duocon and one which manage to look shockingly accurate to his old G1 art even with the new gimmick of giving his two halves a robot mode. He's also now, technically, an itty-bitty legends class two-man combiner and that's adorable and novel.

So, now that we got Legends-class figures jamming up into each others...erm...interface port, think we're going to see some remake of Micromasters figures?

Does anyone else kinda wish that Battletrap and Flywheels had originally had their names switched so that the one made up of more obviously battle-based vehicles (the fighter jet and tank) had been named "Battletrap", while the one with the more obviously visible wheels (on the truck), rather than treads, had been named "Flywheels"?
