Ker Click, CHOOM!

Great figure! Awesome review! It's a great figure to see being given the proper stand alone treatment after those obnoxious remolds of the FoC Combaticons. Hopefully after Roadbuster, we'll get a genuine IMPACTOR!

I found something though on mine that you should know about: That black plastic part where the main propeller attaches is hinged so to bring it center on the back.

Thank ya kindly! Yeah, ever

Thank ya kindly!
Yeah, ever since reading MTMTE and falling in love with Whirl's character, I've wanted a legit figure as well; REPAINTS WILL NOT DO. So glad he got the figure he deserves.

And double thanks for telling me about the propeller swivel; either that wasn't in the instructions (like pushing the arms in) or I simply glossed over it. Subtle but nice.

Trial By Transformation

You're welcome! I'm not sure if it was in the instructions or not, I only looked at them to figure out the decal arrangement. Just a trial by transformation discovery!

My only complaint about the figure is he needs a new big bang stick.. preferably one so powerful he'd need a week off after firing it... or The Shoomer!!!

..but he can do the Forcefield Face so all is forgiven!!!!

Now combined with all of the other figures from the Generations line, we're still about 180-190 characters away from completing the Lost Light crew!

Can't wait for Generations Roadbuster

I can't wait for Generations Roadbuster, so I can have the Dorvack/Wrecker combo!

Thank you!

I did not know about this one until this review. It was an easy decision to track one of these down. I really love the fact that it was molded in the color of the Ovelon Gazette from Dorvack instead of the lavender that the OG Whirl was molded in. I kind of wish that the blades weren't yellow, and a better mechanism was used to fold the main rotor blades, but oh well, the price was certainly right. I would LOVE it if Whirl and Roadbuster got the MPC treatment, so we could get perfect Gazette's and Caliburs.
