Do all Rahkshi types look the same?

Recommended Posts

In 2003, all six types of Rahkshi look the same, despite different spines and staffs. Even 2004 comics showed that with more Rahkshi types, However, in 2010, there is the Rahkshi of Heat Vision, who is bulky with Light-resistant armor and the staff that have the same heads as Guurahk’s. This guy is short because it’s the Stars, and his short size isn’t canon. Do the staff heads canonically shaped like Guurahk’s staff heads, is it just that the designers were lazy on making a new design for the staff heads, or is it that the designers try to make the Rahkshi Stars set look strongly like one of the Rahkshi sets in 2003? 
 

So, are all Rahkshi types look the same? I saw some people did the same 2003 models when they are making MOCs for the 36 other types. Some did differently with the heads, and kept the Rahkshi Stars shape for the Rahkshi of Heat Vision’s staff heads. Has anyone asked Greg Farshtey about this? 
 

I super wish we could have gotten sets for all other 36 types through the G1 years with the same 2003 build. :(

Normal Rahkshi all look the same except for their colors and spines.

Yes, but what about the staffs? Should the Rahkshi of Heat Vision’s staff have different heads rather than Guurahk’s in the canon?

Staffs are probably all different, although some may look very similar to others.

Bear in mind that most Rahkshi don't even have staffs. The majority of the wild Rahkshi in canon didn't use tools, they just fought with their claws and their powers.

The first Rahkshi we saw in canon were abnormally strong, and specifically chosen and equipped to take down a team of exceptionally powerful Toa. It makes sense that Makuta would go out of his way to give each of them a special unique staff.

By contrast, the Heat Vision and Quick Healing Rahkshi that fought in the final battle were a mass-produced army. Most likely Makuta just manufactured a bunch of identical staffs to arm them.
