    Please excuse the slack digibashing... I usually just use digibashes as mock-ups so I can get an idea whether a real kitbash will look any good.

    This seems like an easy custom (I think). I've got a spare Bulkhead... I wonder how I should go about it. I hate painting TFs... dyeing maybe?

    Another question is, is Whirl actually cool enough to bother making a custom version? I mean, who cares about Whirl anyway? :) 

    Does this actually look good at all? I'm not sure if that camera-head thing ever really looked all that great. Any thoughts?

    Nice. I like it. If I were you, I would go a head with it and do it. Slightly off topic here, but I've never really ever gotten much response from my threads. I've been trying to get opinions about a couple of digibashes that I've done lately, but I haven't gotten that many replys, and the one's that I have gotten, have been really simple or off topic. Back onto this topic, that's really nice. Good work. Peace out.

    I like it. Cool blue is a nice color. You could do it with just a regular Bulkhead's head and ignore teh g1 accuracy, but I prefer the Shockblast look

    you could take it a step further, and just NOT transform the one hand so that he is even MORE G1 accurate.

    Heh heh... I was actually thinking of that exact thing... or at least making some sort of attachment to fit over the engine port.

    If I bother going through with a Whirl custom, I think I'll have to go for the Shockblast head thing... I mean, if I'm gonna do it, it should be all the way, right? Besides... Wild Bill homages aside, I'm not all that into Bulkhead's normal head. Destined to be decapitated for an Alpha Trion bash, I think. :)

    Actually, Bulkhead's face is modeled after the fat dad from that custom choppers show. I dunno his name.

    Whirl was one of my first TFs. Probably for that reason I've always kinda liked him and I think your digi looks great.

    If you dont 'bash him, I'll buy that extra Bulkhead off ya. Been looking for one and I might just try the project myself.

    Whirl's cool enough, he's a Wrecker after all. (but Roadbuster gets most of the love)
