He may not be the Whirl I wanted, but he looks to be a damn good Whirl regardless.

I wonder if a Kreon can fit in the pilot seat...

Actually springer was just too big. I think scale was disregarded in springer because kids think big is cool. This new whirl figure figure seems a bit shorter and is more to my liking. It should go nicely with the upcoming fansproject Roadbuster.

Well I like the stickers, only because it means that the big obnoxious autobot symbols are optional, kinda like the kre-o sets.

Stickers?! Sheesh, Hasbro's pulling out all the stops on the maximum G1-ness of this thing. :KREMZEEK:

He's not the Whirl we deserve, but he is the Whirl we need. :P

Though I actually like the AM series I can't help but point out that those stickers are more or less "necessary" to apply in the absence of paint apps in key areas while these ones are more optional. This way people can have their comic-accurate or toy-accurate versions. That said I'm sure people will complain about these.

I liked the idea of the stickers on the AM line, but sadly the execution was questionable, mostly because rather than adding extra detail they replaced paint apps. I still enjoyed adding them to my Ratchet but they are tricky and feel they are filling the wrong purpose. I loved the optional decals way back on TT's MP 3 Starscream, I loved and added the stripes to BT Skids, Gen Metroplex was a hoot, I decided not to add the faction sticker to MP Tigertrack and this, well this is a nice surprise!:D
I keep forgetting Whirl is even coming...still haven't got Rhinox and Waspinator :-(

Stickers eh? Very interesting.

If I never knew about that figure before and someone came and showed me that and asked who I thought it was I would say Whirl. So I'm happy with this Whirl.

:MAXIMAL:

I wonder if the stickers are a homage thing, or just some weird way to save money, or maybe even let the fans choose what apps go on him? As long as they're good quality stickers I'm not sure I mind, but the Arms Micron ones were a bit poo.

Him being smaller than Springer, Grimlock and them isn't a bad thing. Makes him closer in height to Classics Cyclonus at least. For "REAL GLARING ACTION!"

Stickers?! Wow. They really are going old school with this guy. Part of me says "No. Not again. You fooled me once with Metroplex, shame on you. You won't fool me twice." And then another part of me says "Okay, shame on me. Those are so getting put on."

Impressive that they added that feature, at least for the G1 fans. Guess Hasbro IS paying attention to detail. More so than we thought.

How can they honestly say Whirl has 3 modes? That's pretty much B.S.

I'm not a fan of the backwards chicken-legs, but then I wasn't a fan of his original skis either so it's not like my position has changed. I'm guessing he won't be visiting the UK anyway, like the rest of his voyager mates.

I like this, but damnit hasbro, if sticker sheets are gonna be a thing again, for the love of god make replacement sheets available on your website! I have several stickers missing from metroplex because they got ripped or fell on the carpet and wouldn't stick.

I hope that his legs can actually bend like they do on his box art and in the concept art we saw ages ago. hopefully he will be in reviewer's hands soon so we can really see what he can do

I always thought Grimmy's size was due to being so damn hollow, and Springer (and Blitz) to being Triple Changers.

I seem to be one of the few people that love this Whirl. I feel so un-hip. What were people hoping for a Whirl? Is there a picture?

Don't feel un-hip; people were simply hoping for a figure reflecting his most recent and widely loved characterization from James Roberts' More Than Meets the Eye comic.
