    Well then.


    Somehow I need to convince myself that the Generations one is still good enough, because there's no way I can afford a 3rd party one. :lol

    Nice toy, but I have no love of the IDW Cybertronian design. I'll stick with the Hasbro Voyager and get the MMC Obsidian.

    Interesting: a mix of Stormbringer and MTMTE.

    An Q4 2016 for Turben seems to be really optimistic. ;)

    I wonder if they plan to color him purple and release it as some sort of not Shockwave. I love my Transformers Cloud Shockwave. :D 

    I prefer this over the Obsidian variant. The cogwheel rotors do nothing for me.

    Except that ain't IDW Whirl? Certainly nothing like his lanky MTMTE version.

    Aah I forgot about that ugly bot mode. Much prefer his crazy spindly limb look and attitude in MTMTE. Oh well, good for those who like it!! Looks like there's gonna plenty excitement for everybody.

    Same same same.

    This is the best we're going to get right now, since he seems to be a retool of Obsidian.

    Let's hope this is an early Prototype (like their kind-of-ugly-Cyclonus from last year) and some things change.

    If not, let's please hope that in the near-future we can have a more MTMTE version. I'll take this for now though. Yes. I'm desperate :( 

    Need moar IDW stuffs in my life.

    I'd like it to be more lanky too, but this is good enough. Better than the G1 inspired generations version.

    They limit themselves by having the mold be shared by 2 characters (Whirl and Obsidian). MTMTE Whirl deserves his own dedicated mold! Or at least, make an accurate Whirl and let Obsidian suffer the inaccuracies.
