    I like it, but damn if Twinferno isn't some random combined knockoff.

    Paint job looks pretty awesome on Thermidor. Given that Takara seems to have stopped the TF Adventure, probably gonna pick this up and not wait for their version.

    The Orange is a bit jarring.

    I am glad they changed the head as well.

    Hm. Thermidor looks pretty good. I never saw Bisk, but I may pick this one up if I see it.

    Painted pupils? I'm all over Thermidor.

    I like Twinferno, but the red is quite overwhelming. Not that it would stop me from buying him on sight.

    I've still never seen Bisk in the wild. Tempted to get this guy to be my TF: RiD Dr. Zoidberg and alternate universe Dr. Zoidberg.

    Cool I'll snag twin inferno when I see him. Very interesting mold.

    Good description. I like him, but he totally does look like a wacky half-remolded knockoff.

    I guess they probably molded the "flame" bits in the same mold as the body pieces... but boy does it look weird to have them solid-colored opaque plastic. I'm so accustomed to having Transformers fire effects be transparent. I wish these were transparent as well. As is, I'll likely just leave them off.

    Ok seriously. WHAT COLOUR IS TWINFERNO?!
    He seems to be a different colour every time I see him
    The early renders made him look magenta, then later pics showed him being very red
    Then some pics of him in packaging made him look orange.
    Now he looks reddish orange.

    Personally I liked the look of the original magenta renders best.
    Either way I will end up getting him. But yeah. Seems the colour gets worse every time I see him.

    Meanwhile Thermidor looks fantastic! The new headaculpt really looks great. His pupils are even painted. He'll look great alongside Bisk (since I don't have any other scavengers to put him with)

    I really like these figures. I saw Bisk but he just didn\'t appeal to me. I think I just preferred Thermidor over Bisk. These two will definitely be on my list to pick up. Also Hasbro, where\'s my Glowstrike and Saberhorn? I\'m waiting >.>

    Really? I've seen entire risks of Bisk. (A "risk" is the term for a group of lobsters.) This TRU had nothing but Bisks in the Warrior class.[​IMG]

    I still can't believe animated was canceled and thus just drags on and on and on

    These two look awesome - independently moving heads on Twinstrike?!! - buying Twinstrike for sure, Thermidor probably. Cant say no to a good pirate :)

    I kinda want to get Twinferno and repaint him into TR Twinferno aka Doublecross, or the other way around. :D
