Previsouly, everyone was under the impression that RTS Rumble & Frenzy were coming in a Voyager Class two pack. But now that Hasbro has updated their online catalog giving us our first look at the new Scout Class Demolition Rumble. It doesn't take a brain scientist or rocket surgeon to realize that Frenzy will follow in a later wave. With the new images we're also treated to a new bio:

DEMOLITION RUMBLE is little more than a low-down dirty thug. Loudmouthed, violent and destructive, he’s the ultimate DECEPTICON foot soldier. He loves any mission that involves wholesale destruction. It’s not uncommon to hear his shrill, maniacal laughter as his pile drivers shake a structure to pieces.

G1 cartoon fans now have a nice fat middle finger to wave in the face of G1 comic fans. RIBFIR!

Well... at least in RTS.

Now if they really wanted to confuse everyone, the "United" version would switch them around!

Having said that, I like and it'll work out a damn sight cheaper!!

I... was never under the impression it was a Voyager two-pack. I figured Scouts for both of these guys.

Ditto.

And nobody knows which one is really which, except for maybe Soundwave. Still, for my personal tastes, I prefer for Rumble to be red and black, so in my book, we'll actually getting Frenzy first.

This has got to be one for the next Q&A surely?

Unless this is only a sample and the inserts get switched upon the final release.

Wouldn't be the first time!!

HA! The battle continues! Seriously, all this division over who is what color would've been grounds for a Crusade a thousand years ago! :lol:

Don't forget the Frenzy repaints that came with the various Barricades. Frenzy is silver, black, blue and red!

Still, I was hoping for a two pack that simply wouldn't label which one was which and talk about the general confusion in the bio.

Can you remove the guns in robot mode and place them on his back ??? I like the tank but the robot mode kind of blows. Glad I bought the perfect effect versions...

I would say yes, considering that the guns are on 3mm clips and that that's how we saw them in the prototype pictures earlier.

I hope Hasbro are run by a real sadistic bunch. After these photos, I'd love for this figure to be released in alternate packaging; one calling him Rumble and the other Frenzy, and the same for the red version. That'd really mess with everyone's head.

Cool to see these guys in Scout class - they'll make good companions to Scout Windcharger. Guess the combination gimmick is out of the window, unless they can combine and Hasbro will post the instructions on the internet, just like with Arcee 8-} :lol: .

Oh, and FIBRIR.

Posted by Optimus1138 on December 22nd, 2010 @ 9:51am CST
Yes! Rumble is blue! Not that it really matters, since we can make them whoever we want them to be once we own the figures, but I've always thought of Rumble as the blue one and Frenzy as the red one, since I've seen the G1 cartoon but not the comics (or any other G1 fiction). I was rather hoping that they'd be released in a Voyager two-pack, but at least it'll be a bit cheaper this way.

Since it's from the RTS line I think it would be one hell of a good joke if the rub-sign showed either "RIB" or "RIR" instead of a faction symbol. :P

The Tomy/Tak "United" release will be a 2pk, but looks like Hasbro are going down the single pack route.

Just watch as they only release ONE of them in the UK.... :-x

I like TT's better actually, I think I'll go for them.

I use PE's versons on my Neo-G1 Shelves, but I'll put these guys on my WFC shelf.

You've got to be kidding me. They can't even get it right. If the blue one comes out as Rumble and not as Frenzy, then I give up with this debate. It'll just have to become this

RIBFIB RIRFIR

Some official fiction that gives these two the ability to switch colors would make me very happy.

...That or Soundwave owning up to the fact that they both share a multiple personality disorder which is compounded by the prolonged time they spend in close proximity within his chest compartment. The condors have it too but nobody can tell since they don't speak and all of it explains Ravage's desire to work alone on spy missions. :lol:

This is just awesome. Making them scout class is genius, because they will be the perfect scale. Cassettes would have been cooler, but I don't mind the tank. I'm just happy to get these! :D

I don't care who is what color - Frenzy could be turquoise and Rumble could be magenta. I just care that we're getting a Rumble and Frenzy. :D

Most kids today don't know what a cassette is. Hell, a lot of them don't know what physical music storage is. Maybe Hasbro needs to update their alt modes as digital downloads. Then it doesn't matter which bot is which color. :lol:

I think the tanks are great.

Ha Rumble is the blue one it is now official, well hes suppose to be purple with blue highlights but close enough. I was hoping him & Frenzy were going to be either a 2 pack or a larger class but it still a cool figure and i will be getting both.
Re: Reveal the Shield SCOUT Demolition Rumble (1160519)
Posted by Samsonator on December 22nd, 2010 @ 12:56pm CST
RUMBLE IS BLUUUUUEEEEEEEEEE! (to the tune of the "got an item" sound from the Legend of Zelda series)
Also... Scout Class? I thought initial reports had the two of them at a deluxe-ish size, two-packed and sold as a voyager... Still I prefer the scout class for any robot who's original version was tiny (Minibots, Cassettes, Throttlebots, etc.)

Until something else comes out that contradicts this and you know it's going to happen. HasTak probably has been having a 20 year old laugh at the people who go nuts over this. It's a conspiracy I tell you.

Eh. Cyclonus as Skywarp was pretty much confirmed by the AllSpark Almanac.

"But it's a different continuity!"... Shut up.

Posted by Shadowstream on December 22nd, 2010 @ 1:38pm CST
This is why I would've preferred a 2 pack: They could just put their names on the box stacked on top of each other and never specify which is which in their bios. That way the fans could make up their own mind as to who's who and the debate wouldn't matter!

Thanks for opening this can of worms Hasbro...

Thanks

Man, I don't know where I stand on the RIBFIR/RIRFIB debate...I grew up on the cartoon, so to me Rumble is blue. But the toy is red....ARGGHHH, ANYWAY!

Sweet looking figure, alt- and robot-mode. We all know now there's no 2-pack in the USA, but will Frenzy be released at the same time? (Sorry if someone said it, and I missed it).
Re: Reveal the Shield SCOUT Demolition Rumble (1160616)
Posted by GEEWUN on December 22nd, 2010 @ 4:24pm CST
Why is everyone making such a big deal!?!?!? just get both and call them whatever you like. I mean if we all called the toy what was on the package it would be "Turbo Tracks" and "Autobot <insert name>" everywhere. You can interpret the name in any way you want....


Now onto the toy:

1. love that its a scout instead of deluze
2. I sorta find it weird that the Decepticon "midgets" now have null rays
3. I understand the change in alt. mode, but Frenzy/Rumble will always be a cassette tape in my heart :SICK:
Re: Reveal the Shield SCOUT Demolition Rumble (1160634)
Posted by Optimum Supreme on December 22nd, 2010 @ 4:58pm CST
I'd rather have the red one, regardless of the name on the package (though he'll be Rumble to me!). I hope there's not a long gap before that version comes out.
Re: Reveal the Shield SCOUT Demolition Rumble (1160640)
Posted by Starscream GaGa on December 22nd, 2010 @ 5:06pm CST
It is HIGH-LARIOUS seeing all you silly children getting so worked up over the name of a toy.
If you think Rumble is red, then just call your RTS Rumble Frenzy instead! There! Simple! Problem solved!

For me, I love the cartoon so this is fine, although it's funny how much people actually care about something so stupid.
Re: Reveal the Shield SCOUT Demolition Rumble (1160657)
Posted by Omega-1 on December 22nd, 2010 @ 5:54pm CST
Rumble is clearly the blue one because rearranging his name you get, MR. BLUE.
