    Battletrap? So I guess the rumors of the tow truck being a Duocon were true, to an extent.

    Would be cool if it's like a shot where you see the two ram into each other and instead of what you would expect (them blowing up) you see them combine.

    Imagine if Battletrap eventually becomes the main antagonist of the film. He kills Scourge and fuses parts of Scourge's corpse onto him and becomes the "new Terrorcon leader" while Nightbird joins the Decepticons.

    As a fan of the duocons i don\'t mind this name change. If anything (even if it doesn\'t happen) it gets me excited for the possibility that scourge and him can combine as it would make for a great scene especially after scourge gets defeated by prime so they have to use that move and the reason why they haven\'t is that unlike other combiners it\'s an unstable connection. As for wheeljack being a van, while not my favorite idea I will be more open-minded and I hope he does change alt modes in either the final act or the end scene like some of you have been saying.

    If Scourge and him actually do combine on some level then they'll get points, otherwise probably just a nameslap.

    Yeah it's a nameslap, but I see it as being a case similar to Blackout or Barricade where the previously established character isn't really that important or well-known.

    just saying it might be more than a coincidence that a character named after a duocon happens to be a truck used for connecting to other vehicles. i swear a tow track latching a helicopter mid chase and crashing together to become a robot would probably be the most badass thing to happen in a live action transformers movie

    Or be absorbed into the G1 aesthetic.

    Sadly this is the direction the franchise is heading in over in the Generations line. It’s like the imagination is utterly dead amongst a certain segment of the fan base and cannot accept anything that doesn’t look like it jumped out of 1984. Or in the case of the films starting with Bumblebee, “G1 with more polygons.”

    Battle Trap it is. Hopefully he stands on his own merit and isn’t a duocon. I can already hear the purists screaming that Wheeljack is the hippie bus.

    Totally agree, while I think it would be cool to see a Duocon on screen, Battle Trap is not a "above reproach" kind of name, it can be used in a different context if they so choose.

    Its rumored that the robot mode is 'animalistic', there will be no Duocon gimmick here.

    1. It's okay for people to prefer the Lancia alt-mode.
    2. Given how he's currently not 'wearing' an alt mode similar to another well-liked character I don't see any dumb arguments cropping up.
