Site sponsor Kapow! Toys has provided us with a pictorial review of Takara Tomy's Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-31 Frenzy. Enjoy the review below.

Transformers Arms Micron AM31 Frenzy

I dismissed this guy when the delivery arrived assuming I already had the RID version of Rumble but after picking up the box today it appears I was sadly mistaken. The darker blue plastic immediately makes him look better and more like Takara Frenzy, couple this with the far superior head sculpt and its already head and shoulder above the RID version apart from the lack of pile drivers, I know he comes with his sentry Micron but in this case like Wildrider he could have done with both however that might just be me being a greedy git

The stickers are easy to apply, its like Takara have been on a learning curve since the first few AM releases in that they've worked out the kinks in applying the stickers to curved sections or large complicated surface areas. The Micron is the bog standard snap kit which again has a great little slide gimmick built into it and a decent set of stickers.

Card mode is fairly bland, you don't have to put the Team Soundwave on the door or the Frenzy stickers I just fancied making a boy racer.

Over all AM Frenzy scores 7.5/10

If your in the UK or Europe you can purchase Frenzy from Kapow Toys via the following link - http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/tfam-arms-mi ... 84e0r8vsu6

Frenzy looks awesome! Nice G1 elements and references on this figure! Definitely getting the Takara version instead, though.

Damn it Takara...you're just too damn good!! :BANG_HEAD: Even though I did get the Hasbro version this is simply Frenzy. I never really considered Hasbro's version to be Rumble anyway, to me it just didn't work...I called him Rallytron. :P

I would love to see both Rumble and Frenzy with MP Soundwave just to have a look...(Ben Stein voice) anyone, anyone? But these a both a instant buy and I can't wait when they arrive! :VEHI:

I really think when I get Takara Rumble and Frenzy, Im swapping the black limbs of RID Rumble to Takara Frenzy. Red/Black and Blue/Black will make them look that much better together I think.

Ugh. I hate that dark blue on him. I'll keep my distance from this thing.

I picked up RiD Rumble thinking I wouldn't also need Takara's little-boy-blue, but I think I agree with the man from Kapow. It's a damn good looking figure. I'll pick one up if it ever goes on clearance.
