but double the trouble.

Profile: Battletrap can best be described as playful –in the same sense that a cat is playful with a mouse that it has caught before the cat moves in for the kill.  If his two components were humans they’d very likely be a wrestling tag-team.  He likes to trap an adversary between his jeep and helicopter components and have “fun” with them –knock them back and forth a bit, before ripping them to pieces.  He’s cheerful and good-natured –no doubt because he enjoys his work so much.

Abilities:  Battletrap can divide his robot into two separate and autonomous vehicle modes –jeep and helicopter.  The two vehicles have identical personalities and can recombine into robot mode in 1.6 seconds.  The jeep has a maximum speed of 90  mph and a range of 600 miles.  IN robot and jeep modes, battle trap uses a double barreled, wire guided assault missile launcher with infra-red imaging for night-firing capabilities.  The helicopter has a maximum speed of 780 mph and a range of 1,200 miles.  It is packed with electronic detection jamming and communication equipment.

Weaknesses:  Battletrap has good strength in robot mode but sacrifices much of this for mobility when he divides into two vehicle modes.  Neither vehicle is especially rugged or weapons-fire resistant.

Shown to the middle right, his only appearance I can ever remember (comic or cartoon).

Personal note:  Sorry but this toy got played w/ when we were kids! :)  A mint condition Battletrap figure does not have black colored windows.  We thought it would look better that way and so we took out our black permanent marker and colored away! :)

Other Appearances: Unfortunately, Battletrap made very few appearances as his Duocon self of the G1 series.  He has made zero other appearances in the rest of the TF Universe.
