Custom of the Week - Universe 2.0 Whirl by Wheeljack-S70

Transformers Garage is on the look out for the best custom / kitbash to feature each week here and in the Transformers Garage Hall of Fame section. This week's featured custom is the Universe 2.0 Whirl by Wheeljack-S70. This kit-bash made from Energon Bulkhead has transformed it into a Whirl that we think trumps the original. Easily making this the Transformers Garage Custom of the Week!

There have been many a helicopter in the Transformers Universe. Arguably, the most admired Transformer was the Generation 1 series Autobot Whirl. Based on a mold borrowed from Takatoku's Gazzette Ovelon figure. Whirl's G1 mold is never going to see the light of day now that Bandai owns it. Even Hasbro's repaint of the Machine Wars Sandstorm as Universe 1.0 Whirl was a total fail.

But that doesn't matter now that we have Universe 2.0 Whirl by Wheeljack-S70. Based on the a kit-bash of Energon Bulkhead, the figure has been transformed into a Whirl that trumps the original. Check out Wheeljack-S70's write up on the toy:

Whirl. Mostly bulkhead and mostly blue. This mod/repaint became more and more obvious as I was working on it. anyway, here's how it came out.

Bulkhead is the figure, but the head is actually from a thruster off of Armada Rodimus that's been modified. The stand came from a plane model kit and I added the circle to it. Thanks for looking guys.
