    Oh this guy.

    Well since we have no idea what this new Battletrap will look or be written like, I'm still going to wait before fully judging it, but I am a bit disappointed simply because I'd like to see the gimmick in live action. Unless he combines with Scourge or something like some people have theorized.

    I should rephrase, the name feels great for the character from what I know so far. The name just clicks to me, it's a name I didn't think of and it (no offense anyone) sounded a lot better than some of the theories going around. It just seemed to kind of bring him into the fold more, he's a character now. It's not just 'that tow truck' 'wonder who that is', and considering they could've gone with a lot worse and Hasbro is kind of bad at naming characters now, it isn't so bad.

    I mean no, it's not the O.G Battle Trap but it doesn't strike me as just a nameslap. Battle Trap hasn't exactly been that big a deal anyways.

    To me, they gave him a name that works, I'm happy with it, and that's all my original comment really meant.

    Battle Trap is a nobody, his name is free real estate.

    Hmmm battle trap being a duo con makes my expectation of scourge and him combine together a little higher

    Yeah it could definitely be far worse, like him being called Motormaster or something.

    But seeing a helicopter smash into a truck to form a robot in the film would have been really cool.

    It would, but again, Battle Trap is a nobody, so if a "helicopter and pick up truck" combiner happened in the movie it would probably be 100% a coincidence since the chances of a director genuinely having fond memories of the original toy are minuscule. Your average G1 fan does not hold an immense knowledge for those characters/toys.

    On the other hand I do like the concept of Jackie being a repair van, the colors are a bit drab but as long as he has familiar design elements I'm willing to be forgiving. :lol

    Ok I'm really surprised that Wheeljack is a Volkswagen van. I can't wait to see how that's gonna play out.

    if there's one thing they'll keep intact in changing a blue helicopter/truck decepticon into a black tow truck unicronian, it's that he'll combine... right.

    I wasn't expecting Wheeljack to be the Volkswagen of the group, this should be interesting. I am also looking forward to Battletrap.

    I would have preferred Wheeljack to be the tow truck, but I'm intrigued about the van alt mode.

    hopefully battletrap is either a triple changer or combines with a helicopter and isn't being used as a throwaway name even though it most likely is

    Wheeljack huh? Okay, why not? Since his classic alt was one very specific race car, something that could be on a domestic road makes sense. Being a Voltswagon bus is a cute nod to the often ignored fact he's supposed to be pretty old.

    Battletrap? fine; Terrorcons are a new thing so this iteration of him can be different.

    Cool that it's Battletrap
    Again as long has he's G1 WJ with the face, ears and back fins I'm game for him being a TV repair van.
