WIP: Operation Whirlstorm

So I recently bought Vortex, intending to turn him into Whirl. but mere moments of him arriving, I learned of Rotorstorm and things changed. Unable to decide between what to turn him into, I decided to work my Tomahawk into the mix as well, and ended up with both Whirl and Rotorstorm!

Simple partswap so far, still waiting for the Headrobot Drone set to finish Whirl, Gotta figure out how I want to do Rotorstorm's head too. So far this is what I've done, lemme know what ya think! (and I know there's a hand in some of the pictures, helped make Rotorstorm look more gray, less beige.

Before:


Tomahawk


Vortex


After:
http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/attach...1&d=1330571008

Whirl 1.0




Rotorstorm 1.0





In bot and alt mode I tried to make them each look a bit different, like giving Rotorstorm his up shoulders, with Whirl taking the look he has in MTMTE, and I tried to make Whirl's alt lood a little edgier, popping the wings up and closing the tail piece. Makes him looks longer in alt mode too.

Still need to put on the Reprolabels, and do headswaps, and make the visor of Rotorstorm purple, and add the entire Whirl/Drone upgrade kit, but that's something I'll figure out later.

So yeah, there's my first "custom" so far, leave all sorts of comments-especially ideas on how to make Rotorstorm's head look right. All praise and constructive criticism welcomed with open arms!

if you can do some deeper parts swapping to put all the purple parts (hands, air intakes, cockpit, etc) onto tomahawk,

then your mainly grey figure can be your base for whirl,
and the black and purple figure can be a CHUG version of 2007 movie helicopter-bot, blackout.

(it is what i am planning to do)



and what is this news of rotorstorm?

While cool, I kinda like the look of them the way they are, the purple on Rotorstorm working nicely for my tastes, though this can always change-i had everything different the other day-i doubt when this is all done i'll be close to what i wanted to do originally, but i'll be just as happy.

Though waddya mean "News of Rotorstorm"?

i swapped the legs too. The black looks slick together, and even though the grays dont reeeally match, its not that bad unless you're looking for the difference.

though the swapped landing gears make me twitch lol.

Pretty cool, your Rotorstorm reminds me of the Energon version of Cyclonus more than Rotorstorm though.
