Transformers Takara Legends LG-51 Doublecross
White Leo Headmaster
White Leo is actually a character from the Beastformers, also known as Battle Beasts. He is the leader and king of Bistoram. He appeared in the Japanese Headmasters Anime.
Haywire was the Targetmaster partner for Blurr back in the vintage line. I guess it’s a nice touch that Takara decided to release him with Doublecross instead of not releasing him at all…
Headmasters/ Titan Masters ride inside the belly of the beast.
Doublecross’ outstanding feature is that, in his beast mode, his left and right hands are two different personalities, often bickering with each other. In robot mode, one of the personalities becomes the dominant one and takes control, whichever one it is, is usually random.
Sock puppets attack!!!
Listen to me, left hand! Listen!!

Comparison with the Hasbro version (Twinferno with Daburu). Takara version on the right.
Personally, I really like the colors on the Takara version more.
