Transformers Timelines[edit]

During the Diaspora, Twin Spin was apparently dispatched to Level 69 along with an assortment of Guardians and Renegades. Cultural Appropriation TFWikiFavicon.png

The roster for Level 69 actually mentions "Tailspin", but no such GoBot exists, so presumably this was a misspelling of "Twin Spin".

Renegade Rhetoric[edit]

When the Renegades discovered a mystical gemstone was in the possession of a wealthy theatre enthusiast, they performed a showing of "The Pirates of Penzance" for his pleasure. Twin Spin had a serviceable role as the Police Sergeant. The Show Must Go On

Cy-Kill created an alternate universe by removing Luther Unum from the past before he could become Leader-1 of the Guardians. Twin Spin was one of the Renegades in this reality who was charged with guarding the Time Portal used in Cy-Kill's scheme, but a resistance force of humans and Guardians managed to get past him and set the timeline right.

Twin Spin, Blades, and Pincher attacked a UNECOM facility on Mars, but were driven off by Doctor Braxis and his new invention, the Destabilizer Cannon. Once Braxis Twice Shy Part 1

While marooned on Axiom Nexus, Cy-Kill recalled for his audience Twin Spin's role in Zero's mutiny. Renegade Rhetoric 2015/10/15 He also cited Twin Spin as a good example of GoBot diversity when it came to alternate modes, especially compared to Transformers. Renegade Rhetoric 2015/10/14

"Echoes and Fragments"[edit]

For their own amusement, Sideways and Gong played with reality so that elements of a Gargent stream blended in and out of a Primax stream. In this amalgamated universe, Twin Spin was a Renegade who attacked a Command Center on its way to Autobot City on Earth. He dodged an acid pellet launched by Prowl and fired back, eliminating the Autobot soldier. Echoes and Fragments
