Autobase Aichi has shared new photos of Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Twinferno! We recently saw the Titans Return version of this character, but in his RID form he's totally reimagined as he's now a "Stealth Bomber" of some kind, and, well, he's orange. He does homage his original character, though, as he still has his signature dragon hands. Here are the in-box images!

Someone at Hasbro must REALLY like Twinferno/Doublecross if he's getting a RiD toy AND a Titans Return toy.

Anyways, this looks like it'll be a pretty decent figure. Not something to go out of your way for, but I see myself snagging this if it happens to be on the shelf.

That is a lot of bright orange. Like G2 levels of bright orange.

I finally figured out what that orange reminded me of.

The orange makes the altmode remind me of Samus's ship:

Makes sense - Samus just had two new games revealed, why not a toy to go along with them? :P

Stealth bomber with giant dragon heads sticking out? ohhhhhhhhhhhkay

really puts the disguise in robots in disguise. 8-}

Only looks like dc/tf in the most superficial of ways. There maybe be some interesting Warriors I'd pick up it I weren't futilely holding out saving my mons, hon, for TR figures, but I don't think I'd pick this up if RID was the only line instead of 1 of 3.

After the in-package images from a couple of days ago, we now also have in-hand images of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force figures for Thermidor, Twinferno and Bludgeon! The first two are courtesy of Yong Zhang of HK-TF, while the latter is from Baidu user 全波段巡天. Check them all out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Argh. I was wanting to pick up Twinferno, but it looks like he suffers badly from Aerialbot syndrome.

"Alright, we've got a new lobster transformer coming out. What should we name it?"

"Shhhhhhh. Thermidor"

Its absolutely brilliant.

With Bisque being a smooth, creamy, highly seasoned soup of French origin, classically based on a strained broth of lobster, Thermidor is a French dish consisting of a creamy mixture of cooked lobster meat, egg yolks, and brandy, stuffed into a lobster shell. =P~

Yes, Will, I Know what Lobster Thermidor is, thank you. :lol: It's still a groan worthy pun.

Well I didnt know until this character came out. And now thats all I want to eat.

Funny though how lobster used to be seen as a terrible thing to eat, so much so that prisons were not allowed to feed them to prisoners more than twice a week since it was deemed too cruel.

That I didn't know. Interesting, thank you.
Lobster can do that to you, I heard of lobster rolls around a year ago (Mmmm, Lobster shreds with a fresh slaw on a warm roll) and since then it has been my life's quest to find a good one. Being in literally the center of the country, however, has made that hard.

BACK ON TOPIC (Why do I always pull people off topic about food?)
Bludgeon looks cool. Twinferno looks cool. LOVE the flame accessories. Those look amazing.

Yup, geting all three, no question. I really love this line for its inventive designs.

If you take the dragon heads off of Twinferno's alt mode it looks a great deal like Samus Aran's ship.

More fun Thermidor facts: Thermidor is a blue lobster, which is a real thing. These are estimated to be found once out of about 2 million lobsters. (And I look afterwards and of course the wiki dudes already noted this.)

Fine then, more trivia. Thermidor is the name of the 11th month in the French Republican Calendar. Most of the RiD episodes where Thermidor appeared premiered in November, the 11th month on our calendar. Also, the word has "come to mean a retreat from more radical goals and strategies during a revolution, especially when caused by a replacement of leading personalities" says Wikipedia. This is applicable to Thermidor since Clawtrap stole his ship, and since Starscream punted the Scavengers aside in Season 3 as the main villain.

Finally, Thermidor is first seen in a cold environment, which could possibly be a reference to appliance company Thermador who have a high reputation for their commercial use refrigerators.

Basically, Thermidor is the best name.

I'd like to see what Twin-ferno looks like with the Dragon head folded under the wings (by his sides) and perhaps with the flame still in the mouths.

It would then look more like a regular jet Mode I think.

I hope the presence of Movie toys in the UK doesn't prevent these coming out.

Do we have confirmation of the rest of the Warrior wave yet as I heard a rumour that Ratchet & Bisk Repacks might be in the same wave - and we never got them in the UK.

That was still season 2 (or "Season 2.5", as that mini-series is also called). We're in season 3 now.

I feel this is necessary to bring back up:

Twinferno is amazing and I will own him! Bludgeon is also really cool, though Twinferno is the bomb to me
