Transforms from helicopter to robot and back!


"If used logically, madness makes a great weapon."

Loves his job...careens across the sky spinning and weaving wild, crazy patterns. Believes enemies are more terrified of him if he acts wild during an attack. Flies at 400 mph, range 1600 miles. Amazing maneuverability...can fly at almost any angle. Carries four incendiary-shell cannons hi-energy photon beam rifle. Great strength as a robot...has null-ray module on hand, paralyzo box on leg. Reckless...prone to rotor blade damage.

Transformers Tech Specs

Whirl, like Roadbuster, was made from a mold owned by competing toy company Bandai and was based on machines from the Dorvack anime (in this case, the Ovelon Gazzette helicopter mecha). As a result, Takara avoided promoting them in the cartoon, and this combined with his frankly ugly appearance gave Whirl the lowest popularity of any Transformer his size.
