Hasbro Transformers Prime Frenzy Test Shot

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Here something we've grown unaccustomed to seeing since the early days of the DOTM toy line, a seemingly unknown character test shot! Deceptigtar of the TFW2005 boards has shared what appears to be a Hasbro Transformers Prime Deluxe Frenzy test shot. As you can see this version is red and features the alternate head sculpt seen on Rumble's instruction sheet, which up until now we had assumed was only meant for use on Takara Tomy's upcoming Arms Micron version of this mold. The figure also bears the "not for sale" stamp often seen on prototypes and test shots. Did Hasbro intend on bringing Rumble's partner in crime to the "Robots in Disguise" line, or perhaps they still have plans to release him at some point down the road? We've mirrored Deceptigtar's images below.

Hasbro did one too? Maybe I don't have to import Takara's Rumble. :)

If they did bring a red Frenzy over as an exclusive of some sort, my dilemma would be solved... kinda. Hasbro Rumble and Arms Micron Rumble/Frenzy (whoever ends up as the red one)...
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

I prefer Rumble. Frenzy isn't as interesting as his bro.

A test shot? Sorry Hasbro, but even if you get him to the stores, I'm not getting him, for three reasons:

1) I'm getting the more superior AM version of this guy.

2) The prices are to expensive at the stores, but it's not your fault (I now realized that after October's high price topic)

3) Unlikely, but the FIRRIB/RIRFIB war would turn into a "fight" at a store between two fans (Due to the fact that the Marvel Comics follows the color scheme of Takara's first version of the cartoon, before it came stateside to America, while the English dub of said cartoon swapped the colors).

Still, why can't you reissue Frenzy and Rumble anymore, Hasbro?

This FIRRIB/RIRFIB term just makes me unsatisfied with flamewars.

The cartoon came to the US first, Japan got it a year later, in 1985 :-$

Wow! Who'd a' thought Aligned-continuity-family Enemy would get his own head sculpt! Now if only they do the same for the Garboil that'll surely come with Beast Hunters Soundwave...

That figure looks really good, especially next to Rumble. Still not sure Rumble and Frenzy are the best identities for them but I think I'm going to have to get both anyway.

The minicon is a bit derpy also. xD And paint is always better than stickers. =_=;

Recently was told by the person I got it from that I could do what I wanted with it because it wasn't going to be released. I had the Ironhide up here earlier in the FS forum after Sargent Kup released. Now does that mean it will never be released??? Can't say 100% but it was released from the factory to him which usually doesn't happen with stuff that will make it to production
I suspect he's referring to Thundertron when he said "Tigertron".
