I was sort of unsure as to getting this figure but I've always liked Whirl as a character and this figure looks super sharp so I will be scooping this one.

I was stoked when I got Sandstorm and Springer so I'm pretty sure this guy won't disappoint!

New pics of Generations Whirl with arms correctly transformed plus pics with legs reversed

Thanks to spark crusher pointing out that Generation Voyager Class Whirl's arms are mis-transformed due to incomplete instructions, the gallery for Generations Voyager Class Whirl has been updated to include a few new pictures with the shoulders properly transformed. The step that the instructions leaves out is that the shoulder ball joint should be pushed in toward Whirl's head. This tightens up the upper arms tremendously and makes the toy look even better. In addition, the double jointed nature of Whirl's knees was not fully taken advantage of in many of the original photos in this gallery so you can now get a better sense of how his legs should be posed. Due to a request from Dead Metal, a few pictures were also added with Whirl's legs reversed so that he has more traditional looking knees. Enjoy!

Are we sure that the knees aren't supposed to bend back like normal knees? The hollow part of the thighs is hidden when the legs are posed more traditionally. Maybe they're meant to bend forward just in Gerwalk mode and Hasbro screwed up the instructions.

Wicked. Def on the list. I prefer the digitigrade leg arrangement, as it somehow looks more natural to me.

Even if he's got teeny little feet, I prefer the backwards configuration of his legs over the IDW way. Nothing against the IDW character (he's completely awesome, several laughs were had when I read the comic that came with Trailbreaker), but the chicken legs don't look right on the original Generation One body.

I def don't mind the tiny feet either. It's great that we have the option.

Seibertron wrote: I do think that the upper legs are misassembled. Hasbro and Takara are usually really good about making sure the front and sides of the robot modes don't show hollow plastic. The way the legs are show hollow spots on the sides of the upper legs but the upper legs look much better when turned around 180 degrees. Just the knees are awkward as are the feet when you do this.

What it's looking like to me is they had to compromise for the inverted legs and chose to sacrifice the upper legs of the robot mode for looking better in vehicle mode. Any other side would have been the top/side of the upper leg piece in vehicle mode or the front in robot mode, so they chose to ignore it being on the outside in robot mode rather than redesign the thigh... which would have probably necessitated a game of "Which side do we put the screws on" ... actually I think the whole thing could have been solved if they designed the waist/hips piece to be rotatable 180 degrees in its slider (basically ending up with it "upside down" in one configuration. Really you can't see it in robot mode anyway, but it would reverse which side of the thigh is "outward" in robot mode and all we'd lose is the landing skiff c-clip points being on the outside... If I'm picturing this right in my head)

I don't mind the "hollow spots" on the thighs because they're not completely hollow; it almost looks like it could be a natural part of the design. I wouldn't have even noticed if people hadn't been talking about it.

I kinda wish takara/hasbro would consider springing the little extra for dry transfer (rub on) decals. Or some chinese 3rd party would start making water sliders. at least for this whirl where the stickers would all look better as decals to begin with.

I would be more inclined to believe it was designed with the G1 "ski" legs in mind with originally and the chicken-legs a legacy of the Gerwalk mode. We already know the shoulder transformation instructions were wrong, so why not the legs too? The thighs look fine with the G1 legs.

I'm a child of the 90's who has almost little-to-no real interest in the post-1987 G1 characters who neither appeared in any of the cartoons (American or Japanese) nor had any particularly notable role in the comics (Marvel, Dreamwave, IDW, etc.), but of the four Deluxes in this wave, it is Scoop who I find myself looking forward to the most. 8)
