We’re taking a break from bringing you galleries of the Titans Return line to spotlight one of the new releases from the Robots in Disguise line. Warrior class Twinferno might be the last new mold to grace the Warrior size class for the line, and he’s a different and quirky concept for a figure, which sums up the original characters of Robots in Disguise as a whole.
Our second Twinferno of the year does not turn into a dragon, but rather a bizarre spaceship / stealth jet… with dragon heads. It’s a different type of airborne vehicle mode, and it’s nice to get some variety into the Robots in Disguise Warrior line which has mostly consisted of ground vehicles so far. Robot mode is solid, if a bit generic apart from the dragon hands. The head is particularly plain, and looks a bit like a background character rather than a named character. While very simple, the transformation is also a little frustrating as the legs proved hard to peg into place, and we’ve got concerns that the leg mechanism – which swings down on one plastic arm – may break in time, as it seems overly stiff and a bit of force is needed to make it peg in. The flame accessories are fun, plugging into the dragon hands for fiery breath in either mode, and also attaching to the jet engines for a blazing engine trail – and these also work in robot mode, if you have ever wanted to pose a robot delivering a fiery kick to his enemies.
Overall, an interesting and different figure with unique accessories, if a little flawed and generic in his robot design. Check out the gallery to see if he should go on your wants list when he hits US retail.
