Mint in Box: Transformers (Titans Return) – Twinferno

Time to play some Double Dragon!

The amazing Titans Return line continues and not content with reviving the Headmasters, Targetmasters and Powermasters of yesteryear, the line has taken a swift right into the bad part of town that is home to the bizarre assortment of 1987 robots known as the Monsterbots.

IMG_5989Twinferno (aka Doublecross) is one of the Monsterbots, an Autobot trio that makes the Dinobots and the Wreckers look positively friendly by comparison.  His comrade Repugnus makes an appearance in the low-price Titan Master assortment so we may be seeing the trio complete before the line is done.

IMG_6092 IMG_6093 IMG_6096Twinferno’s beast mode is an awesome two-headed, bi-pedal dragon — ala King Ghidora. The twin heads have a decent array of movement since they’re also pulling double duty as arms in robot mode, allowing for some cool poses! Unfortunately, the tail refuses to stay together via friction and had to be forcefully compressed together for the photos.

IMG_6090 Partnered with Twinferno is the Titan Master, Daburu. His name is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of Double and his nicely sculpted robot form is a homage to White Leo of the Battle Beasts/Beastformers, a toyline with close ties to the Transformers in Japan.

IMG_6088 IMG_6085 IMG_6052Daburu can ‘pilot’ Twinferno via several mounting points on the dragon mode which is pretty neat.

IMG_6098 IMG_6101Being a Titan Master, the pair can combine to form a singular robot and Twinferno’s head is a really handsome visage, if a little plain.

IMG_6117 IMG_6070Twinferno stands a little shorter than the other figure I have from this line, the previously reviewed Mindwipe and can even swap heads as part of the signature cross-play pattern.

IMG_6079 IMG_6077 IMG_6114As a solo figure, he definitely cuts an impressive silhouette and looks like a proper boxy brawler. He has a decent range of articulation and can do a fair Rider Kick and even be a pretty ballerina!

IMG_6111The twin cannons that were previously mounted on the dragon mode’s back can be wielded in robot mode as either shoulder cannons or by attaching them to the side of his dragon face hands.

IMG_6108Twinferno was one of my highly anticipated figures from the Titans Return range and I’m happy to say that this figure does not disappoint! He’s an absolute blast to play with and I highly recommend picking him up for yourselves.
