    I didn't care much for the Hasbro Rumble, but the way the chest is decorated here makes it look a lot more crazy and appealing to me.

    Wildrider's head almost looks like Wheeljack's with his faceplate down but it's not.

    Oh man, those are nice.

    Gurrumble Lagann and Wildrider are must haves.

    Frenzy can wait.

    Neat! Wildrider's head is a update/melding of his G1 toy and cartoon heads. Scramble City peg shaped (toy) with spikes sticking out the sides (cartoon).

    Hmm... AM Rumble and Frenzy both share the same remolded head. I thought one was supposed to have the same head as Hasbro's Rumble.

    Frenzy/Rumble have painted rims! Head sculpt looks nice too, more G1ish.

    I'm really tempted to get the Tomy Frenzy now... He's different enough from Hasbro's Rumble to consider, at least...

    Maybe put the Hasbro Rumble head on Tomy Frenzy and give both sets of piledrivers (I have an extra Rumble) to the two Tomy ones..

    HAH! I want Wildrider, but only for the arms micron figure. It looks like a drum grenade launcher or something. I'm digging it. The figure itself not as much, but damn, that Micron!

    I'm getting those three. For blue Rumble though, I'll switch the heads and weapons with the Hasbro Rumble and then sell the Hasbro version with the Arms Micron and the new head.

    These all look great. This only makes me wonder, though... what the heck am I gonna do with Hasbro Rumble? I hate to sell him because he is a nice figure and has a unique headsculpt, but these guys are clearly going to displace him as the proper Rumble and Frenzy in my Prime collection. I don't really like repurposing, but man, I have to do something with him. Maybe Reprolabels can do a set converting him to Boss or Eject or someone.

    Also, hah, Wildrider's weapon is an elephant... to go along with Breakdown's rhino. A little Stunticon-pachyderm connection, perhaps accidental (we'll know if an AM Dragstrip suddenly shows up wielding a hippopotamus minion... :) ).

    The toy's official name as per TakaraTomy is "Stunt Wildrider" (previously, they had "Stuntron Wildrider" for Henkei/Gentei). The extra space in the romanization of "Wild Rider" is completely arbitrary (unless it's on the packaging), and the only precedent on Hasbro's end would be the unreleased Speed Stars toy.

    Nice, all three look good. I love Wildrider's minicon.

    I wonder if Frenzy & Rumble will come with optional "upgrade" stickers like what Nemesis and Silas Breakdown did because their alt modes look pretty barren otherwise.
