    Seeing Bighanks got my butt into gear and I finished this guy up.

    Started as the HA Whirl. I took a Macross head and drilled into the eyes section and replaced with a rod from a Gundam frame. I added an antenna and earpiece made from various fodder.

    Whirls hands (clamps) are from the DoTM Top Spin. A brand spanking new paint job later Whirl is looking like his G1 self!

    Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes!

    The head change makes this figure everything this HA line should be . The whirl head is nice and very useful but the Macross head give the figure a classic 80's feel which suits me just fine. Wheres Sparkplug?

    Wow. So I'd assume his weapon mode is a motorized spinning blade rather than giant gun, then?

    Knowing them they would probably save it for the repaint.

    To the OP, this is excellent. I love the head. I've been looking for one similar to make Classics Whirl out of Skyhammer. So I might give it to look there. And the coloring in A+ Very nice job.
