    After seeing Conundrum's post on "frenzy" I knew I had to go ahead and post this. I dinged him up alot worse than I thought putting him back together so the touchups look a little rough, but after some drying buffing and retouchups he'll be ready to go.

    So here he is. . . Rumble!

    During the very brief absense of a decepticon leader, many names were thrown in to the pot. Always calculating, Soundwave knew he had to hold the spot till his leader returned. While his bid for power was quickly rejected, he knew he would have to come up with a back up plan. He sent his minion Rumble to Earth to amass Energon so if he had to forcefully take over the decepticons, or had to face retaliation from his leader he would be able to do so.

    While Rumbles main job was covert intelligence, this new role called for some more firepower. Rumble quickly found his new alternate mode in a military missle carrier. Once his military channels provided him with information on new energy, he would have to take it by force if need be. Now he sits and waits, collecting Energon, listening for his call to come home.

    I don't know why, but when I saw this mold I immediatly saw Frenzy/Rumble. This is one of the largest transformers I've repainted, and defintly the most nooks and crannies. This is also my first attempt at some drybrushing. The Alternators Rumble head is just sitting on him right now, I dont want to mod that head because I dont want to lose the one to my alternator(first transformer my wife bought for me :)  ) So if you have any ideas for head post them, or else I just repaint this guys head. Hope you guys enjoy, and please let me know what you think and what I can do to make him better.

    That's a pretty sweet idea and he definitely gives off that Rumble(frenzy) vibe

    I may have an extra Alt Rumble head if you want it. Let me check around for it

    This is a really great idea.

    Seeing as how I dont like Alternators, I say buck up and use the head you've got. Unless you can get another one on the cheap.

    I guess it's the sentimental value, though.

    This is a bloody brilliant idea. I've actually done Rumble as a tank before, using Energon Signal Flare as a base (he and Frenzy had sonic weapons), but this takes the idea and runs with it!

    Actually, of all the cassettes, I did once come up with a fanfic concept where Buzzsaw led the Decepticons. Although as a puppet ruler (with Soundwave holding the strings, natch), Rumble would be ideal...

    Yep that pretty much sums it up. Besides I think personally Rumble is massive. Geez, you did an awesome job. Keep them coming.

    Thanks for the acknowledgement. I never would have thought to use this mold as either frenzy or rumble. It turned out really well for you. awesome.

    And I thought I was colourblind. I thought it had been long since established that he was purple in the 'toon, not blue. Or are you guys Devil's Due fans? :p

    Thanks for all the comments!

    Still havent done any touchups, or fixed some nasty painting (what I get for trying to finish up at midnight) but here are some alt mode pics. The camera brings out some unpainted stuff you really cant see with the naked eye.

    Question, should frenzy be purplish or blue?

    Blue. His head, chest and forearms (among other parts) are a dark blue (navy, midnight or thereabouts), and his shoulders, back, thighs etc are more of a mid-light blue.

    Here's some handy reference pics.

    The purple is the colour used for Rumble in the cartoon (although it was presumably supposed to be blue).
