Whirlwind Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:21176  
Name:Whirlwind
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:tommyx  
Date Added:April 20, 2010
Base Figure:Kraven
Height:6.00 inches
David Cannon started out his villainous career as the Human Top, clashing with Giant-Man and the Wasp. Later, he redesigned his costume and renamed himself Whirlwind. When he wasn't fighting the Avengers as a member of the Masters of Evil, he was disguised as Janet 'the Wasp' Van Dyne's chauffeur.
This figure was in the planning stages for a long time, as I wanted to find a piece of plastic that would be suitable for a removable helmet. I finally found it as part of a cheap space laser-gun, which my son was happy to take off my hands! The upper body is from the Sinister 6 box set Kraven. I removed the facial hair and repainted. The forearms and hands are from Wonder Man. The lower body is Luke Cage. All the costume details are made from rubber bungee cord. Photos by Nara and myself. Thanks for looking, feel free to comment, and Make Mine Marvel!

NICE! this is possibly the best whirlwind I've ever seen but I must ask how did you get the top half of kraven onto luke cage?

Good question! I don't remember exactly, but I believe I just cracked open Kraven's torso and put it on. Maybe I did something to it. At any rate, it retains articulation at the waist. Thanks for your interest!
