Not the best photos in the world. Looking at these two here really has me doubting whether I could accept these as Frenzy and Rumble. That being said, they do look good together.

My thoughts exactly, especially since Gentei Wildrider is so expensive. Bring on a proper Classics Dead End!

Rumble and Frenzy do look good... and yet, NOTHING like the original robots. (even ignoring the alt mode.)

Very easy pass.

BUT Wildrider looks fanstastic... and his little elephant parter is worth the price by itself. FANTASTIC. Definitely getting that one. >:oP

Neither did these Rumbles, yet no one complained about them:



Why should looking GEEWUN matter for non-G1 characters?

Two factors:

1) His Japanese name was Romanized as "Ramble"
2) His US name was Scrapmetal

These two made dismissing them a whole lot more acceptable :lol:

You're right. It doesn't matter... unless they want me to actually BUY them. Then it matters a little. Heh.

Those crane-bots just looked like they slapped the name on since they were about the same size... But with these, you can SEE there is a reference to the G1 characters. I just hate to see poorly executed homages, and where they pull from so many other influences besides Transformers. The face-chest is clearly ripping off other toy lines, which I hate to see. That dilutes the brand.

But again, just airing my own opinion. I respect that other people like them... and acknowledge that they're not intended to BE G1 cassette Rumble and Frenzy.

I just don't like them. (Insert Tard the Grumpy Cat image here.)

Cruddy low-res pictures, but the red one looks nice! Glad I preordered him. I just wish they came with the Hasbro weapons too. Silly that you have to buy both to get 1 set of piledrivers.

Wildrider looks good too but I don't really need him.

One of the best aspects of the AM line is how it fills the Decepticon ranks with characters who can be placed in multiple fictions, within and without Prime continuity.

I like using Jet Vehicons as faceless henchmen in my Wfc display and like Cylas Breakdown in my Prime Decepticon lineup, one episode be damned.

Bit disappointed in Rumble ( RIRFIB!) but I'll probably feel better about it once he's in my hand.

All the more convenient for dismissal, right? ;)

Hmmmm these might end up being the first AM figures I get. I've wanted that Rumble mold for a while now and haven't found him locally.

1st photo:
Nice collection ;)^

2nd photo:
Is that one half of a decal on the hood? Or does the red have the other half?

3rd photo:
... and his name is Dago, from tako, which means Octopus :)

4th photo:
Similar yet different. I'll have to think long and hard. :-?

O, since you have both Stunt Wildrider and Frenzy, could you tell us what numbers are on the runners of the Microns?

Conveniently, they pretty much are those guys anyway. Same continuity. ;)

1. Thanks.
2. It is just half, Rumble has the other half.
3. Good to know.
4. Rumble & Frenzy Micron's numbers are M36 with a (R) or (F) respectively. Wildrider's Micron's number is M37.

Hope this helps!

Many thanks! The elephant's name is Ozu btw, from zou, which is Japanese for Elephant :)
