Yeah (in a Bill Lumbergh tone) these just aren't going to be good for me. When the word first broke about Rumble and Frenzy I was stoked. Then when the first images were posted it was a real let me down. I stop and think of what really could have been for these two awesome G1 TF's. I think I too will consider the Perfect Effect Shadow 2 pack as well, a far better representation of these 2 guys...'nuff said! :CON:

This is the second review of these guys that didn't have a size comparison...

How hard is it to stand a Generations Deluxe figure next to them?

Huh guess it doesn't matter either way since Bayformers are stealing what little joy I have left for the foreseeable future.

PE ones look far better anyway.

They look awesome with WFC Soundwave, too.

As for their alt modes, I personally think they looks more like those unmanned SWORDS systems the Army is now trying out [you know, those remote-controlled robots mounted with assault rifles, running on tractor treads?]

Maybe it's Rumble's & Frenzy's implied size, and the fact that they have thin, twin lasers instead of one main large barrel canon.

I'll pass on these for sure. I think they could have at least cleaned up the design a bit. If they were less kibbly looking with cleaner lines and more solid looking limbs then they may have warranted some interest from me. Plus i hate tanks. SOOO BORING!!

I agree with Rated X on these guys. They've taken away what makes these guys unique and interesting and made them pedestrian.

Sure they've added the pile driver feature but it still doesn't sell me on the overall design.

I JUST GOT AN AWESOME IDEA! when I Heard of this a few months back I thought, well someone's got to wake a jet laserbeak and ratbat to go with them! laserbeak would be a beige f-15, same goes for ratbat, but once you transformed them, theyde reveal they're colors, and frenzy and rumble would do the same, but would look different in robot mode, but with Movie laserbeak coming, I Could just use that. Soundwave.... HE Would be the new Trypticon! A Giant base for them all! 8-} THAT WOULD BE EPICSAUCEMNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

I've never met anyone that hates change as much as you do ;)


Looks like I wont have to worry about these guys for a while anyway.. :sad:


I'm not a fan of Giving the microchange TF G-1 toys different radical alt modes.
