    Whirl is a straight up repaint of the Evac mold which is a retool of the Blackout voyager.


    Whirl is a decent repaint with dark blue,some yellow and a few black areas in alt mode.

    Bot mode;

    I couldn't find a sword for him yet so i gave him some more firepower(unpainted of course)in the form of a targetmaster.

    Mine has no floppiness as previously reported and fits together snug.

    Alt mode;

    Alt mode still has the nosecone and missile issue where they do not quite fit right without work.

    Overall a decent alt paint job.

    Recommended if your an autobot completest or a fan of the mold but pass for everyone else(unless you like the sweet Bludgeon repaint he comes with):lol

    Nice. I recently got Evac at Botcon, after seeing pics of it in my TF Generations Vol. 2 book. I love the Whirl colors.

    Just bought this set from my local TRU and wow..... what a piece of crap. My figure takes the prize for having the worst quality control issues of any TF I own. I wouldn't call the joints floppy but nothing fits together properly and any part that can fall off does at the slightest glance. He can't even hold his gun in either fist. The fists themselves look warped as if something went wrong when it was molded; one of the fists has an almost oval shaped hole instead of a circle. The paint looks ok, in fact I think i'd really like this figure if not for the lousy quality I ended up with.

    On a side note my Bludgeon that came with this set suffers similar issues though not as severe.

    Mine's a little shaky too. I like the Paint scheme, however the paint apps are a bit sloppy. That stupid cage couldn't hold the weight of a cotton ball let alone that lame little plastic raft-gun. I do like this mold though. I own Grindor, and would like Blackout if I can find a good price on him. Don't think I've seen EVAC in this mold though. Hmmm...
