    Following up my Rumble repaint, Frenzy gets the same treatment. I went with a more comic based paint scheme and color instead of going for something more realistic. He needs another coat of silver to even some areas out and I need to work on the heads provided by your freindly neighborhood Sculpt-bot and he'll be done. It may not show as well in these pics but hopefully you can tell Ive got a little bit better since my Rumble version of this.

    Please tell me what you like and what you would do different, comments and crits are always welcome, Hope you enjoy.

    11/16 Added new pics of head painted, small amount of detail to break up the blue and an Alt pic, I probably need to add a bit more detail to the alt mode, Ill get around to it some time.

    Very nice. Seeing this reminds me I have the counterpart to my Rum..whichever, still lying on my work table.

    As for criticisms, I really don't have any. You're painting seems to have improved quite a bit...and it wasn't that bad to begin with either. The only thing that could possibly change is maybe the amount of blue on him. It looks fine now, but if you could think up a way to break up the color scheme, it'd be awesome.

    Conundrum you need to get crackin man! I always have a hard time picking my next project to start and have so many 1/2 done. As for the big mess of blue in the middle, the pics I was looking at had it that way, but Ill prob add something to his "vents" in the lower center of his chest.

    Tell me about it. I think customizing is all i'm going to be doing over my thanksgiving break from college. I have Frenzy/rumble to be finished as well as Laserbeak, Ecto-1, Scorponok, a Rubik's Cube, Headstrong, Head Master Cosmos, and a super awesome Razorclaw.

    Lot's of awesome ideas, just no time to work on them.

    Interesting. I like what I see and I want to see these develop more.

    I might suggest using the G1 toys for some color references. Throwing in some of those little touches help bring recognizability to your updated characters.

    These are casted heads from Alterntors Rumble, I picked them up from Sculpt-Bot, and I highly recommend him.

    Looks really good with the painted head man. Glad Sculpt-Bot's heads worked out for you.

    Both your Frenzy and Rumble look amazing. Truly unique idea you have for these molds.

    There's just ONE problem though... RIBFIR :poke  :D

    Very nice.
    I must admit scene seeing your Rumble (Frenzy) & now your Frenzy (Rumble).
    I am seriously considering picking up 2 Uni Dropshot's to make my own.
    RIBFIR, RIRFIB differences aside, Hell of a job man.

    The head just looks awesome. There's no denying who it's this guy is supposed to be...but there'll always be a debate.

    I love how you turned the rifles that came with him into his "backpack guns". It's a really nice and unique touch.
