    Whirl. Mostly bulkhead and mostly blue. This mod/repaint became more and more obvious as I was working on it. anyway, here's how it came out.
    thanks for looking guys,

    I'm not a fan of this character at all but the likeness is uncanny. Very nice repaint!

    Awesome job! I was wondering how long it'd be til we saw him finished. Though now you might have to do a Roadbuster to keep him company, haha.

    That is beyond awesome. I don't know why, but always remembered Whirl. he was so odd looking. This is definitely a great homage and revamp.

    Looks pretty good. Are the head and feet from an original G1? I think I spy a Neo Shifter hand also.

    Man... this has always been a pretty obvious kitbash, but you've poured so much WIN into this.... I feel faint... :) 

    Love the details, the decals, the excessive weaponry... the pale blue paintjob looks like a dream too. I never would have thought to put skids on this mold though... it works!

    I don't have any special affinity for Whirl, but I do love it when a bash like this hits all the right notes. Awesome!

    A couple of questions... what did you make the head out of? Also, it looks like the propellers are still stock green. Kind of an odd choice.

    This figure/character has been on my list of projects for some time now. You did an awesome job on it, I can only hope that when I get to do mine that it comes out half as good as this.

    Wow, saw this one too...I really like this one. This is a great update to the minor character. I actually just picked up a Bulkhead a few weeks ago, was think of this as well (to go with the Roadblaster released)

    Nice job as always.

    That is just a spot on modern update to Whirl! Do the skids/feet parts form, they must right? The head and weaponry are awesome!:drool:
