    Just got these bad boys yesterday, woke up bright and early today and started painting up a storm. Downloaded a cool pic of these 2 to follow, mixed several different variations of colors til I found what I was looking for and here they are. Both are painted with custom mixed Tamiya acryls, coated in Model Master clear. And though it might cause controversy, I still say Rumble is blue and Frenzy is red, since these boys are based on the G1 cartoon, and nothing else. These guys are so choice, if you have the means I highly recommend picking them up. Enjoy!

    Yay! First I've seen of a purple Rumble and I like it! Can't wait to get the set I'm having painted for me.

    looks great. Did you take them apart to paint them?

    I am investigating whether or not I can take the chest panels off to paint them. Yours seem to be the same color so it would make sense that you did not

    Thanks guys. I did not take these apart, after reading FR's advice not to. These are so tiny, they seem pretty delicate so I chose not risk it. They are a lot of fun to paint.

    Finally, an actual "Rumble!" I've always been a RiPFiR versus the other two arguments. There's no question what you're referencing. These guys look professional! I keep seeing more of these being custom painted, and I'm ALMOST wanting to buy a couple.

    Seriously good stuff. :)

    I took both of mine apart with no problem. It's sturdy but not really held together by anything. Just keep track of all of the pieces and which hand/lower leg goes with which shoulder/thigh.

    I painted them last week just haven't found my camera to take pics yet.

    By the way, RIBFIR.

    Actually, there's a radio commercial that's been playing on the channel I listened to all day that's giving away baseball tickets, and part of the sound bed is Cameron sayin, "heeeey batabatabatabatabatabata, swing batta!" So yeah, I had that movie stuck in my head the whole time I was painting these. Love that movie though, never gets old.

    Thanks, I really like these guys

    Amen, Rumble will always be blue.

    Thank you, spent about an hour mixing colors and throwing them out before I got to that one.

    I got one of those little guys, but I have almost no experience with painting. Alas. So in my case, Rumble is black, Frenzy is black.
