    When lined, the chunkiness of his canopy really shows. I think if it had been more tapered inwards as opposed to flat rectangular he might look much better

    I'm still eagerly waiting for mine, though

    It shows more in pics. It's not as chunky when you look at it in person

    That tail assembly is probably the biggest eyesore on WW for me. Does any real helicopter have the tail rotor on the ride side for that matter? I seem to recall them all either being left side or built into the middle of the vertical fin (like CW Alpha Bravo)

    Got mine last night. Mine didn't have the Air Burst replacement parts in it but did have a small Baggie of tiny gray parts which look like ratchet teeth attached to tiny cylindrical sprues. Does anybody know what these parts are for?

    My understanding was that BBTS would receive Whirlwind with the Airburst replacement parts since they were the ones who received the bulk of the first run of Airburst.

    All of a sudden... everything I disliked about Whirlwind is gone and all I can think about is how much I need to get him and paint that canopy like yours because that is fuckin' glorious.

    I am surprised that no US retailers have received him yet. He has been out at Asia retailers for over 3 weeks now. This is the longest it has taken for US retailers to receive a Warbotron figure once he has been released. I am sure BBTS and TFSource will blame the west coast dock strike again.

    The longshoremen strike is probably continuing to play a large role in the delay.

    I really enjoy the shape and color of Vortex's canopy. It evokes Energon. Which, to me, is essentially what this aesthetic is. Mixed with Generations. It works.
