Botcon has taken to YouTube yet again to reveal the next exclusive that will be available at BotCon 2015. Last week, they revealed Deluxe Class Packrat as well as Minicon "Vicegrip" this past weekend. This week, they have revealed Voyager Class Decepticon Battletrap ("The Muscle")! Many fans have been hoping to see Generations Springer and Blitzwing redone as the 1987 Duocons Flywheels and Battletrap. BotCon is set to deliver us Battletrap from the Springer mold complete with a new head ... could a Flywheels reveal be around the corner? Check out the video reveal below.

Neat.

This set is very blue so far.

Honestly, even though this is the superior figure, mold wise, I would've proffered Fly wheels from blitzing being the foremost duocon . Also the head looks a little small compared to the long neck. Though I think the reason it looks off is because the goggles are more of aviators on this figure, rather than the well large temple, to temple goggles on the original.

anything with the springer mold is awesome. Uhh...so the question is...do I NEED to get this set, or do I WANT to get this set?

From the sound of his bio, he might be originally from (a version of) the Dreamwave G1 continuity.

We rule! :DANCE: Nice job on properly decoding the prison number btw (591-9687D: 591, May 91, debut in Marvel comics; 96, or D-96 is his Japanese ID; 87, 1987, the release year of his G1 toy)

Actually looks pretty decent, in all modes despite the broken palette.

I normally end up trying to get a single Botcon figure (Sir Soundwave, Land Shark and such.)

I always liked Battletrap and as I had both Duocons, I preferred him so this news is solid.

DOH! Thanks for pointing this out. Feeding my 4 month old and trying to write news stories at the same time don't work that well together. :D

I have no working knowledge of the Duocons but this is a very nice upgrade. I love it! And I see a lot of effort went into homaging the color pattern of the old toy. Good job!

Of course this means flywheels will be the blitzwing mold and he will be a convention exclusive to make you spend more money. Im kind of feeling them. But they will need some 3rd party accessories to differentiate them from springer and blitzwing. New heads arent enough.

Or is this a collaboration with Hasbro to get people to buy that awful colored two pack of Astrotrain and Blitzwing

I've often wondered why they don't provide new accessories on some occasions. It would go a long ways toward selling some of these figures.

I always assumed it had to do with their ability to only alter one aspect of each mold. Like, remolding a head or a wing or some other piece is one thing, but making a brand new accessory mold might be out of their league. That they can include some new accessories like Arms Microns or Scorponok's G1 Spike molded head is likely due to those molds already existing.

Of note is that he said

"there's very little blue on the next three, if any."


Another clue to the next reveals... and it would exclude that little blue guy we saw earlier. Back to the drawing board :-?

I did some looking into BotCon 1996 for the Bounty Hunter, and... I can tell it wasn't a very good convention to say the least (thank you, Men in Black). Anyway, Pulp Fiction theme, Onyx Primal, G2 Greasepit, Double Pretenders, what else do we have that's unique to that convention?

Notice that the toy reveals have thus far been in the same order as on the BotCon 2015 website. First was the thief, now the muscle. If this keeps up, we'll see next the Loose Cannon, then the Boss, and last the Bounty Hunter.

What about a Dawn of Future's Past Onyx Primal? I was initially thinking we'd need a bat related mold (such as Generations Ratbat) with a new Onyx Primal/Optimus head, but then realized he could be any vehicle. Heck, they could do the Lio Convoy / IDW Orion Pax mold done in black and golds for an Onyx Primal (or whatever colors Onyx Primal was).

I dunno, personally I would have died laughing if every figure had blue and grey as the main colors... also, onyx primal... I'd say ratbat/scourge, possibly a new head, and Legends COmmander/Robot Masters Optimus Primal's swords.

Well of course, they want to save Pretender Oilmaster with Pretender Shell for the last reveal. ;)

Black, white and gold.

Hm. Maybe scratch my idea. It seems Nova Prime has very similar colors. I wonder if he'll get repurposed?
