The Futaba Channel brings us our first in-hand images of the upcoming Transformers Generations Deluxe Whirl. Whirl is redeco/remold of the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Vortex mold and part of the Wreckers combiner team, who are of course all redeco/remolds of the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Combations. The Wreckers team combiners to form Ruination. Check out the images below.

Whirl along with the rest of the team will make up Transformers Generations Deluxe Wave 4.

I blame the orange, myself.

Not gonna bother with this one; not gonna bother with Ruination. Just gonna get Impactor and Roadbuster and leave the rest to die a slow death shelfwarming.

Yeah, the orange sucks; it doesn't belong on a Whirl homage. However, I love the head sculpt (at least from what I can see of it).

I'm a little bit disappointed his bio isn't just "NO KNOWN WEAKNESSES".

What the...? What's with the orange?! Why orange? Seriously, at what point has Whirl ever had orange as a main component of his colour scheme?

Orange? ORANGE!? WTF?

Does use of these moulds come with a stipulation that they must ALSO have a crappy colour scheme?

Im seriously considering buying him just to mix blue and purple parts and make a semi-G1 colored Vortex...

Dual homage to both Whirl and Ro-Tor, maybe?

The head might be useful for custom purposes...

I was considering grabbing him to do the old part-switcheroo with Vortex too, but there's too much paint removal involved.

Vortex redeco from Robots in Disguise.

Hence the combined form being named Ruination.

why have those 2 new 3rd party predaking combiners not been getting any press here but this crap is? this thing is even uglier than the combaticons when combined.

Ah. Indeed. Thanks for the clarification. Never watched RID. Well, that's a lie. I did. Once. Well, I tried anyways. The "Autobot Brothers" just annoyed the hell out of me. Brawn-X? To the EXTREME!! Is that what that was meant to be? :-P

I'll second that (on both counts).

The middle TF needs to be a voyager size. It's way too spindly looking when combined and there's no bulk to it.

Simple, they're not official Transformers products.

If you wish to keep up with Predaking, or any other 3rd party product, here's the forum in which to do it.
