Machine Robo

Doublerock is a barbaric two-headed member of the Gandora Rock People. He often operates with fellow evil Rock People Devilrock and Geigerrock. His weapon of choice is his Plasma Thunder Mace, but he sometimes carries a shoulder mounted missile launcher. He also has a Bomber Punch, Heat Beam and a Freeze Beam (which fires from his right mouth). He can turn into a large rock of coal and if shattered he can reform. He can fly, teleport and pass though solid soil rock with ease. Because of his mechanoid nature, Doublerock does not need to breath oxygen. Like most Rock People he is probably immune to the effect of acid and intense magnetic fields which adversely affect metal mechanoids. He stands 6 feet tall and weighs 1.2 tons. He occasionally pilots a Rock Commander craft.
