    I'd decided to make a Whirl custom out of DOTM Vortex, planning on using the head from Hearobots when it comes out-basic stuff, this is only my first custom, ya know? Body is perfect compared to the new comics his latest appearance seemingly based on Vortex's body, to an extent.

    Then I'd heard about Rotorstorm, and saw that Vortex was a pretty damn good match to him too, with a Tomahawk head, ya know. Which brings me to the question-which to do? I'd rather avoid using two of the same mold for my attempt at gathering the Wreckers, but am torn between which one to try to do. Suggestions?

    For the record, I'm more attached to Whirl, given his recent characterization, though will be reading LSoTW over the next week, depending on when I get it.

    I think Whirl would be best. Especially since it's the one that seems to be less work.

    I always picture Rotorstorm being a bigger mold anyway. Like Energon Bulkhead or summat.

    Something I'm struggling with right now, myself. Right now I'm leaning more towards Rotorstorm because Whirl seems much more likely to get a new toy. I'm basing that on nothing in particular, he just seems generally higher-profile.

    Honestly, I think with the drone kit it'd differentiate enough between the two that it's not really an issue to have the same body. With the skis and the distinctive head I think you're fine using the same mold, but just my opinion.
