Double-dealer has a very unique position in Transformers lore– he plays for both teams. He is both a Decipticon and a Autobot. Doubledealer only fights for you as long as you are paying him, and even then keep a eye on him maybe two just to be safe. He also has two other Minicons paired with him Knok and Skar. Those are missing in this new version, but the word on the space bridge is that they both will come out separately and there is a space for them inside Doubledealer. This is a new mold for Doubledealer and has a new mode as well. He has his robot mode, Bird mode, Missile launcher mode, and what I call playlet mode. This is new and makes a small base out of Doubledealer. Lots of the WFC Earthrise wave have bases and this makes one more for lots of great play value and set up for dioramas.
Having liked the classic version of Doubledealer and this new version really hits all the right spots. It is a great upgrade on the classic and puts shame on the 2014 TF Generations version. Here is a look at the three versions now of the mercenary.
Like I said this is a very nice improvement on the the 2014 version and really brings out all the the classic traits we like with the newer updated tooling that is standard for Hasbro / Takara production. This is a Leader Class toy so its in the $50.00 range. I can’t wait to buy this look at the box and stick that into a tub with all of the other Transformers I want but dont have the space to display them and tomb him in the garage.
