    So for a long while I've been looking for a Whirl standin. Looking at Tomahawk again it seems that it could be repainted into whirl and given a new head and it would be awesome.

    Thoughts?

    If it's a good helicopter mold (not Blazemaster) then i say yeah, It would make a good whirl.

    I thought this was a real repaint pics/prototype?

    well now that I am combing back through, it seems there are people who already had this idea. Hopefully the head robots set will give a head that works for this size wise, and I can just modify it to fit.

    here's to hopinh

    Lugnut is getting his own HFD mold, he doesn't need this one.

    I can see him as Whirl.

    That said, those pics really make me want Tomahawk..moreso than I already did. Killer mold.

    I want a repaint with a remolded head into Bugly. I really want to complete the movieverse Chaos Trinity. He even has a similar alt mode to Bugly's pretender robot VTOL craft. Most likely won't happen but here's hoping it will.

    headrobots.com Blood & Gyro

    new headrobots update showing the parts. Seems like they are adding a lot of guns and wings to the Blackoutmold. Maybe just getting the heads will be hard.

    A Whirl retool would be nice.. If not, I don't mind a Rotorstorm repaint being made from this mold.
