    I recently was able to view some concept art of an Autobot called " Whirl", whose alt mode was a V-22 Osprey. The robot mode was extremely impressive, and the character, when compared to Blackout, would have been slighlty taller and wider.

    If Hasbro hasn't made this figure, then perhaps a third party manufacturer will. Thoughts?

    Are you sure you didn't just see Voyager class (Decepticon) Incinerator?

    If only I could figure out a way to make the lower arms not suck as bad, and switch out the head. He'd be perfect as a Classics Highbrow.

    Could it have been the concept art for the unused RotF Springer design?

    Those close ups changed my mind. Thanks for the scout out, though.

    That looks kinda like RotF Blazemaster. In robot mode anyway.

    I don't think a 3rd party company would be able to put together something as complex as an original movie-style mold, but if you feel the need to develop something yourself, you have my full support as i'm a big fan of that design too :thumb

    Yeah, I'm already in the research phase for a custom mod of this guy. I'll post pics when I complete him.
