Since his coinage of the phrase and his subsequent death, Rotorstorm has been sorely missed in the Last Stand of the Wreckers. The series started off with an introduction to four new Wreckers, rather ambiguous Transformers characters - Pyro, Ironfist, Rotorstorm and Guzzle. Captivated by Rotorstorm's character, and since Generation One Rotorstorm is a tad outdated, Seibertron.com member and customizer tsangkin decided to make a tribute to the Wrecker. Out of 2007 Movie Incinerator comes Rotorstorm as 'Wrecker Strategician', similar to FansProject's play with their version of Springer as 'Defender'.

tsangkin has even gone the extra distance, making a box for Strategician, similar to FansProject's Defender. Feel free to check out the beauty below, while the rest of the custom can be seen over at our Energon Pub forums!

Well that's just great, I was so happy with my Takara Incinerator 45 seconds ago...

Absolute win though, ace classics-style update that really shows how awesome the Incinerator toy could've been.

Rotorstorm was one of my favourite toys as a kid, and this custom totally captures the feel of the original while updating it and making it bad-@$$!

Cool; although the blue is very far from the right colour (less green!), and the windscreen could use more pink.

Awesome work. Love how they turned the mold into a helicopter; it looks perfectly natural.

Pretty awesome take on Rotorstorm. I'm in the process of digibashing Energon Bulkhead to see if I can get a reasonable Rotorstorm out of one.

I find many people using the M.S.G. (Modeling Support Goods) Mechanical Chain Bases by Kotobukiya
On Hobby Link Japan
I have only one myself, but with more you can create entire hangars and such.

Wow....that's awesome! I didn't think Movie figures'd work that well in other looks.
Also....
