Seibertronians, we have some huge news today about some brand new Legend Class figures from the Power of the Primes line!
Coming from Transformers Facebook fan page Planet Iacon, we have actual images of POTP Legend Class Tailgate, Roadtrap, and Battleslash! These figures were shown off previously at a Hasbro event in Australia, but were censored out of all photos from the event, so we never actually got to see them. Tailgate is clearly a remold of Windcharger, and Roadtrap and Battleslash, of course, are homages to the Duocon BattleTrap, except each piece now has it's own robot mode! They both appear to be new molds, but it's unknown if they truly combiner as the G1 version did. This obviously has reignited rumors of other Duocon, like Flywheels, so continue the discussion in the EnergonPub Forums!

You're welcome ;)
I feel special, I feel like after sending it to Thew, I opened the floodgates on Twitter haha.
I'm really excited about a possible Flywheels now, I bet they do combine, but why isn't it advertised? :-?

They totally combine just look at the front of the helicopter mode for battleslash and 19 steps for a figure that small?
Also roadtrap has a clear line of separation down his middle.
Here's hoping that he works better then heavytread from the minicon combiner Centuritron

I agree it looks like they combine... Whether it's something as simple as the crash-combiners (judging from the front end of battleslash)... idk. Kinda wished Tailgate had the teal flames...

I was actually fiddling around with the mini-con combiner... it's still pretty cool, and rather impressive given the scale of the three little guys... though I do wish it hid the rotor blades better

Confirmed, those two can combine.

Combined mode doesn't look to bad, I hope the connection is strong.

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.

is battleslash a fembot? Would be more interesting that way.

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.

Welp. Looks like Transformers really is ruined forever.

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!

I love Battleslash's arm blade...

Combined mode looks good. Individual modes look good too! Approval stamped!

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!

I need all 3 of those, having not owned any previous versions. Those duocons look especially good!

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.
