    This is just a repaint of and Energon Quickstrike with the head, rotor, and claw hand off a Gen 1 whirl.

    Those are perfect updates of those two, seriously. Very nice job, probably the best RB and Whirl customs I've seen

    Wow that mold really suits Whirl. I think this is the best version I've seen so far, props.

    I'm really enjoying your customs so far! There is a very simple, clean approach that yields great results. The original G1 parts look great on this figure, though I think the excellent paint work deserves some credit for blending the elements so well.

    You're not the first person to do Whirl from this mold, but I do think this is one of the best! :)

    You should do something with the backpack. I know it's not a part of the G1 character but I think Whirl would look awesome with the giant arm cannon back pack thing.

    Just the way I like it. Clean paintjobs and good use of the molds, those are superb customs.
    Looking forward to seeing more from you.

    Ditto all round; great choice of moulds, nice mods (it's surprising how well the original G1 parts still work on the new figures), and beautifully painted. :thumb 

    The only downside to my eye is that Quickstrike's hand-flipping ability has been scuppered; with the left hand it doesn't make much difference, as it just leaves the awesome machine gun out, but the claw in that position does look pretty odd to me.
