these pix are of my own toy w/ window that I (unfortunately) painted when I was a young kid...

Text from character's Bio, Abilities and Weaknesses, comes from The Dreamwave series TF: More Than Meets The Eye #2, a comic.  A great series that we highly recommend, get yourself a copy today!

Personal note:  Sorry but this toy, like the other Duocon Battletrap, Flywheels got played w/ when we were kids! :)  A mint condition figure does not have black colored windows.  We thought it would look better that way and so we painted it black.  Sorry!

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

BIO: Another in a series of Shockwave's experiments to create a Transformer with three modes, Flywheels is the least stable of the surviving Duocons.  His personality components are split between his two vehicle halves, and each one has its own level of sentience and opinions.  Unfortunately, unlike Battletrap, Flywheels's two segments rarely agree on anything, despite his attmepts to be upbeat and keep things together.  Each one is jealous of the other's abilities making them more likely to fight each other than Autobots.  Since his personality components refuse to completely merge in robot mode, the two-sided arguments often continue even when Flywheels is whole.  

ABILITIES: Subject's tank component can maintain a maximum speed of 75 miles per hour for 350 miles.  His powerful laser turret can fire at targets up to 2 miles away.  Jet has a maximum speed of 1,300 miles per hour which it can maintain for 1,800 miles.  In combined form, Subject has above average strength and wields a laser rifle with infrared and heat-seeking abilities.

WEAKNESSES: Subject's main weakness is his inability to unify his personality.  He often distracts himself with pointless arguements in the middle of combat.
