    Well heres my latest custom, this one I finished up early last week. When I first bought this figure a few years ago I was never really happy how it looked. I always thought to my self how can this be Whirl with out a G1 likeness.

    So I decided to change it and that began a lot of work. I first add a new head from a moded Alt Shockwave, which is also on a ball joint. Then I updated the arms from Alt Skids. Gave him new hands one being from Energon Shockwave and the other blaster hand from a TFTM Starscream. I also updated the waste and legs from an Alt Prime which gave him some great articulation. Then I new he needed so heavy fire power which brings me to his weapons. When Wirl transforms his hands conect to become on BFG Blaster and I also add a Gatling Gun for his other weapon, also his blades can be used as a sword for slashing down some of those nasty Cons.

    I used Tamiya paints on him mostly Sky Blue for the body, Dark Blue for his head, and Black for weapons and legs.

    Also decals are from reprolabels.

    C&C plz....

    Rotorstorm's mold is SUCH a nice base, and you've done a fine job articulating it!

    He's looking good man, this is just my personal opinion but I think the blue would look 5x better with a black wash used to panel line him, break up the blue and show off some more details.

    I like the mods you have incorporated. I agree with Ultramagnus2008, a wash or some panel lines would really make him pop even more. Great job!
