Demonicon: Double Trouble
Motto: What's better than having optical sensors in the back of your head? a second head!
Description: Double Trouble, or DT as his friends call him, is a Demonicon. A sub-faction of the Decepticons transformed by the mystical properties of Strange Matter into a mythical beast. DT can transform from robot to double headed dragon and back. His dragon mode is flightless, but can breath fire over 1,000 metres and to a temperature hot enough to melt steel.
Weakness: Double Trouble is literally in two minds in beast form, his two heads seem to have completely different ideas and opinions, often leading to him fighting with himself more than the enemy.
I've had the idea for ages of a double headed dragon transformer that has dragon heads for hands. It's loosely based on the character of Double Cross from the Headmasters era of Transformers Generation One.
I'm my own worst critic and to be honest there is much about this design I don't actually like. The colours are a little bland, I'd love to work something else in there to distinguish the robot form from the beast form. The joints on the arms are very limited, which also makes the beast heads a little difficult to pose well.
The leg transformation is basically just turning the legs round and spinning the claws over, I'd much rather have done something with the tail that created robot legs, but I'm still working on the engineering for that.
The tail is a pain, I wish I'd figured out a better way to hide it in robot mode. That said, it might prove useful for balance.
The head (robot mode) is very basic, this was necessary for the transformation.
The crotch design was meant to spin over to distinguish between the two modes more, but I forgot about it when I was taking the screen shots.
As always comments and critiques are welcome, advice and suggestions are invited. Spam is not.
