My anonymous source, who has provided us with a ton of reliable information over the past year or so, was able to see some images of the prototype for the upcoming Transformers United / Generations / Reveal The Shield (you pick the title) Rumble and Frenzy toy.

Apparently, the two fan favorite Decepticon pile-drivin' characters combine to form a tank, similar to the concept of the deluxe class Skids & Mudflap Ice Cream truck toy. Rumble and Frenzy combined will be a Voyager class toy. From what my source saw, the toys will sport their classic G1 heads as well as pile drivers. It is unknown at this time if the pile drivers can be swapped out for regular hands or not. It is also unknown if they will include their unique style of guns.

With all of the recent pictures that have leaked, it's only a matter of time before pictures of Rumble and Frenzy leak as well. We'll be sure to share pictures with you as soon as they become available. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all of the latest Transformers information.

The big question will be: "Who will be blue and who will be red"?

Well, I didn't see that coming.

A tank you say? Pretty wicked.

Hmmmm. Sounds interesting. Although I think doing a Skids and Mudflap style combined vehicle mode would've worked nice for Reflector. But I'll wait to see pics before I decide one way or another on these two. Still, this is going to be a very promising 1-2 years.

Well, outside of the profile books, Dreamwave nicely skirted that question by always pairing them up so they never had to refer to them separately. I would think that releasing the toys together is being done with similar intent. Or maybe they'll even throw something into the bio like,

"In order to help them better fulfill their original functions as information couriers, Soundwave equipped them with exo-armor-chromatic-image-inducers, allowing them to switch back and forth between the red and blue color schemes, and giving them an advantage similar to the clones, Pounce and Wingspan. Although they've proven far more effective as warriors than messengers in their new combined tank form, they still retain this ability, so the Autobots never know which is which!"

I also hope they each have an individual alt mode besides half a tank. Well, even if they don't, I'm sure someone around here will come up with it as soon as they're released.

The absolute truth is right here behind this link. ;)

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to find the guy who decided to make them a tank. Seriously, a tank?

The ONLY instance where Frenzy was red and Rumble was blue was in the US cartoon (though I don't know how the kiddie books handled it). Marvel had it right also if I recall correctly. The Japanese actually got it right -- Frenzy was blue and Rumble was red in Super Robot Life Transformers. Every single toy of these guys has had their names right.

It'll probably be some kind of artillery or ground-to-air tank with the piledrivers forming the gun(s).

Did your source say if this was a WFC style tank or earth style? Would have prefered something like a steam roller or quad bike as an alt mode instead of yet another Decepticon tank. If they were giving them a whole new alt mode I'd have liked something original is all. Still anticipating pics.

Don't forget the War for Cybertron video game. Rumble was Blue and Frenzy red in the game.

When Hasbro released Universe Hound with Ravage included, I naively hoped that it was the start of something. Various Transformers released with cassette counterparts leading up to a true Classics Soundwave. So much for that if this is true. Still, if they look decent enough I'll still bite.

Sounds potentially awesome, I hope it turns out true! Although...does this mean I now need to start collecting Frenzies? By that, I mean, the blue ones? XD

Sad fact about Transformers. Kids love tanks.

I expect Hasbro to eventually make an entire line of TF tanks one day. :roll:

Correction in the WFC games Frenzy was red and Rumble was blue...

100 bucks this forum is blocked because all of the Rumble/Frenzy smack talk.

I want to see a pic or two before I make my decision.

So, a half red, half blue tank. Hopefully, the alt. mode takes a hit to make two good looking robot modes. Since they combine to make a voyager I'm guessing they wont be able to interact/attach with any SW figure.

I was thinking the same thing about their interaction with any existing or future Soundwave. I'll be getting these and I'm sure they will be good figures, but I'll be sticking with my PerfectEffect Rumble and Frenzy paired with ML Soundwave for my classics shelf.

Hopefully they will have hands in one way or another (either interchangeable or , more likely, via different arm transformations) cause the lack of actual hands was a huge turnoff to the Alternators Rumble figure. I hated the lack of hands.

Well, kinda disappointed about them not being able to store inside either G1 Soundwave or a brand new mold of him, but nonetheless, it's a new reincarnation of Rumble and Frenzy. I can NOT wait to see the first images of a pair of one of my favorite Transformers! :BOOM: :BOOM: :BANG_HEAD:

I really hope the designers stay true to the robot form. It would suck to have kibble hanging off of them like the ice cream truck twins.

Are the Perfect Effect R/F compatible with WFC SW? While I wouldn't dare keep my hopes up about being able to fit even one of them into his chest, I'm hoping they won't look too large to display next to him. It would be totally awesome if WFC SW could wield their alt modes in his hands!

As for the tank mode R/F, I'll need to see some pics before making a decision. I was hoping for a more appropriate alt mode, though. Like a satellite armed with laser canons or something, maybe?

A tank mode just isn't R/F.

Then again, WFC SW was an armored vehicle.... :-?

I'm not sure about the tank concept either but I suppose it's the same deal as Reflector and Perceptor; kids just wouldn't be interested in toys that turned into cassette tapes, a camera or a microscope.

Hasbro and Takara Tomy have done the best they can; they've stayed as faithful to the G1 robot modes as they can and in most cases, the vehicle modes.

I'm happy to hear about Frenzy (the blue one) and Rumble (the red and black one)'s piledrivers and G1 heads. Now can anyone find some pictures....... :D :CON:

I like this approach. Keep the fans guessing.

There's always the Encore cassette tapes for G1 Soundwave.

Very true. While I don't really expect a cassette alt mode from these two guys (80's tech being obsolete and uncool to kids nowadays), I do think that a tank should be reserved for more brutish "brawn for brains" characters. Even a Hummer with a pair of pile-drivers masquerading as a missile/machinegun turret mounted on it would be fine for me--just not a tank.

According to the source, the images of the toys are still in Prototype stage. No colour yet. So difficult to know who is red and who is blue....

Also the tank mode is earth version instead of futuristic version.

One of the bid thing about Rumble and frenzy is that they are Soundwave's minions, so... if they cant attach to Soundwave in anyway, they loose that and become just 2 more decepticons.
That just flushes out half the appeal these two characters had for me :BANG_HEAD:

BTW: RIRFIB :grin:

Rumble has been red "officially" more times than he has been blue, I guess it's all down to personal canon or how ingrained the G1 cartoon is into your psyche 8-}

On topic, this is great news, I'm glad I held off gettingt the perfect effect figures, what would be really cool is that if the bio and packaging didn't give us a clear answer to which one was which, failing that, Hasbro go one way and Takara the other!

Just a side note...

One possible reason besides the G1 cartoon that RIBFIR is so ingrained in some people is... the colors for Frenzy make more sense that way. Blue is a calming color, and someone named "Frenzy" being blue just doesn't make as much sense as coloring him red and black, a much more 'active' color scheme...

By the pics it looks like Blue gets to be the turret and front armor, whereas BlackRed gets to be the base and treads?
