Generations Whirl…Robotic Nutcase...

Generations Whirl…For those who have read the IDW comics, More Than Meets the Eye, they would know that Whirl is a real nutcase, likely to defect to the Decepticons…
When Hasbro released this character, i thought i'd just grab it since, it came along at a lower than Singapore retail price bargain…(thanks to a local fellow TF collector).

The toy is truly representative of the IDW storyline and outlook.

A pity there wasn't any light up feature for Whirl's eyes.

There were a couple of new Generation Voyager-sized toys released: Springer, Blitzwing, Doubledealer, Sandstorm…i bought all these but Whirl is different…He came with a sticker sheet!
G1 fans will never forget…."I'm looking for a piece which is unused, stickers unapplied"
It has been a long time when Transformers came with a sticker sheet!
It was really reminiscence of a G1 process.
I gleefully applied the stickers onto Whirl. The above pictures are without stickers..Those below have stickers applied…any difference?

Helicopter mode

Heloped mode…to Macross fans, Gerwalk mode.

Bot mode.

Close up of the bot mode.

Truthfully, didn't quite like the chicken legs…but i guess that's how IDW designed Whirl and it's how Whirl has been represented in this new age...
