I just got the new Twinferno toy, which is a new version of the G1 MonsterBot Doublecross. In this series all the DX and larger TF's have Headmaster companions, Twinferno's just happens to be a re-make of White Leo (in Headmaster robot form). This wave is just hitting stores now, and both Target and Walmart have them on temp price cut for just $10! Super worth it even just for the White Leo.

I am eagerly awaiting their arrival in Canada! They did Repugnus too! But sadly he is just a tiny thing, unlike Doublecross.

The Japanese version of Doublecross really goes all-out on the homage, which makes me so happy!

I'm not normally one for importing Tamara releases, but I might have to make an exception. That thing is stellar.

So Twinferno came out with the Pirate Lion/White Leo homage, which was emphasized even more by Legends Doublecross.

 

Earlier this week at NYCC, Hasbro simultaneously announced and made available for order Titans Return Grotusque, fellow Monsterbot. His Titan Master Fengul keeps up the same connection, being a homage to Sabre Sword Tiger!

 

I got mine in the mail this morning but unfortunately it's too dark right now to take a good pic, so have a video instead.

I'm only pissy because it's a hasbro store exclusive thing.

I'm hoping they release him on his own without the dumb Scorponok head to retail.

He's going to have a retail release as well, but will retain the packaging and exclusive diecast Scorponok. He's going to be a Toys'R'Us exclusive a little while later, the same way Arcee got an early release at Hascon and HTS but is currently up for preorder. It just might take a bit of time.

This is awesome news! I didn't realize they had plans for a full release. The Monsterbots are some of my favourite figures, and I was very pleased to get Doublecross.

Regardless of how unlikely it is, I still have my fingers crossed for Repugnus in a better scale too.

Definitely also keep an eye on news or the HTS page for Grotusque. All the Hascon exclusives became available again this morning (I missed the Magic set  :cry:) and Arcee lasted a long time. It wouldn't surprise me if Grotusque also made a return.

 

Hasbro could always do a more elaborate remold of the mold and squeeze one more Monsterbot out of it, I think. I would love to see that become a reality!
