    Hey guys I finally finished this... Here is my first custom post for my mtmte Whirl. The main most is a standard tomohawk from ROTf but the head is a complete custom... It was designed in cad and 3d printed. It's completely based off of the original g1 head. The guns are from a 3rd party armory set (can't remember which one) let me know what you think! Also he is still fully transformable , the head doesn't get in the way but its just standard tomohawk helicopter

    Looks great... at first I was wondering how you got the G1 head to fit, but then I read that it was a CAD print. Very cool. I'm always happy to see Whirl get more love. :)

    Very nice head! Always good to use the classic, original look. The print quality look prett good too, much better than Shapways'.

    Are you planning him his claws?

    I hadn't looked too much into doing a claw swap for him yet... But I'm happy to see people are digging my head design thanks!

    Oooooh, I want one. Any plans to sell the head? I'd much rather have that beauty than the Drone kit.

    I might try to get a few more heads made if anyone is interested.... They come out in white and are 2 pieces, the main head and the eye that just plugs in

    Can you get more photos of the head piece? I'm interested in seeing the quality of the print.

    The guns are from iGear's weapon case from a year or so ago... it also had a Rifle intended for Perceptor, and guns meant for Kup.
