    I can definitely see a resemblance - whether it's intentional...

    What an incredible way to update the duocons. I'd take a whole subline of this gimmick if it's done as well as this.

    This looks like a third party figure. And by that, I mean good quality. Nice paints, good articulation, and overall good qualitiy.

    he's not truly terrible, but his awkward proportions and various organically shaped components make him fairly aesthetically incongruent with most other Generations figures.

    So, basically, Hasbro figured out how to get us to pay $21 for a figure that is smaller than a deluxe?

    I totally agree. Throw in a new Cliffjumper/Hubcap, Huffer/Pipes plus Eject/Frenzy as repaints & you’d be on to a winner! Hasbro, please tell me you’re taking notes :D

    that's one of the reasons I really want this pair.

    yeah, make something that looks like hi-end 3P :)

    Huh.  Battletrap is pretty neat, even if the truck is literally hauling a pile of robot parts in the bed.

    It\'s a shame the line probably isn\'t running long enough to do Squawkbox and Slamdance in the same manner.

    No. They figured out how to make many of us purchase the entirety of their PotP Legends Class offerings, which so far, I have.

    We'll probably get them eventually, even if it's in another line. Hell, I never thought we'd ever see Battletrap, yet here we are.

    they should use this as a way to bring back every single front/rear end micromaster combiner set from the original g1 micromasters as duocons for today

    The video review posted in this thread shows that you can fold the arms back up like in chopper mode. They sit a little off the back but look like a jet pack and the rotor can freely spin on his back too.

    Yes, I saw the video. That doesn't mean that it is the correct transformation.

    Not really... I have an even bigger issue with a free spinning rotor on the back that is taking up EVEN MORE space than having it fixed along the spine. What I want is for it to be folded up and contained along the back, not how the alternate transformation is.

    Really? He scales pretty perfectly to other Voyagers to me. The one that I was disappointed in was Roadblock. He looks TINY compared to other voyagers, should have been a Leader IMO.
