Doublecross, or as he is known of late, Twinferno, has been getting a bit of buzz with the announcement of his impending Japanese release in the Transformers Legends line, so here is a photoshoot of the double-dragonbot!
Twinferno is a leftfield choice for the Titans Return line, but we’re not complaining. Both robot and dragon modes are very cool updates of the original’s design, which benefit from the increased molded detail a modern Transformer offers while staying faithful to the look of the original. He’s by no means perfect – there are problems with getting the dragon mode legs to lock in, the robot mode arms could really have done with a wrist swivel, and the 5mm ports for the guns on the “hands” are way too tight and stressed when putting the guns in. But in spite of these flaws, Twinstrike comes out with a cool look, solid poseability, and a nice choice outside of the obvious candidates for the line. Shoutout also goes to the inclusion of the Battle Beast White Lion for the Headmaster figure – a nice nod to Doublecross’ appearance in the Japanese Headmasters series.
