    Finally, a helicopter that can turn its blades into a railgun! Very cool.

    The figure itself looks amazing even for a post-ROTF Basic, and the underslung weapon mode is very inventive. I must say that with Crankstart's head, though, that this figure would make a really nice Vortex if painted the right colors.

    Either way, I'll be looking out for this guy.

    Can you see it in Germany? Someone said they were blocked.

    Also, it;s the same head as Dune Runner because it came headless and I made a new head from Crankstart, the Dune Runner repaint. I specifically mention it in the video.

    I was hoping against hope that 1) the blades would be able to point DOWN in back, and 2) those ridiculous skid feet would fold up against the legs.

    Oh, well.

    I was thinking this line of basic HA would be stupid, this railgun idea though is looking like a definate buy. Thanks peaugh for your amazing reviews.

    Okay, someone else said it was just Shockwave and the Wrecker that weren't up. Weird. I'll look into it.

    Awesome review, I love the railgun idea. Maybe DoTM isn't going to be as bad as a thought.

    If I get this guy, it'll mainly be for his gun-mode.

    I'll team him up with Voyager Skyhammer.

    DotM HA Whirl

    Here is another very strong mold from the DotM HA Basic line. His unique style isn't for everyone, but everyone should give this guy a thorough look over.

    Great review, and I definitely think he's one of the better & more unique ones from the group. Along with that, the fact that he's only a Scout makes it even better. :)

    I was modding my HA Whirl, mostly cutting the windshield so Sparkplug can see through it, and I found that the whole whindshield is molded in translucent blue plastic. The same blue plastic as the head, in fact. I can't understand why Hasbro has painted over it so the windshield becomes useless.
