    I'd say just because it would be so hard to make a decent transforming toy engineering-wise. The FAB is probably the best they could do. They also had a Robot Replica of Frenzy that has a decent robot mode but of course doesn't transform.

    i know, it just would have been nice to have him done a bit better-like without the disk gimmick. woulda been cool to have a decent one-and is FAB Frenzy worth buying?

    All that, and it wouldn't be to scale...

    I know what you mean though, Torque, I loved Frenzy in the Movie and he deserves some better treatment.

    There could at least have been a Real Gear repaint of some form.

    If you haven't got Barricade already it may be worth it as the little Frenzy is a lot of fun.

    he also had the most screen time of all the Decepticons-maybe even more than the autobots as well. woulda been nice though. and i have 2 barricades-recon and target allspark power (looks awesome in red). also, is it worth cutting the grill of Frenzy in half so his legs are free from eachother?

    FAB Frezy is pretty fun, but again nothing like the on screen rendition. They did what they could which in and of itself turned out pretty cool, but still. I know exactly what you're saying.

    I'm not sure that I'd cut MY Frenzy's feet apart but it totally depends on you. It definitely wouldn;t cause a major transformation glitch with Barricade or anything.

    FAB Frenzy is a great toy. Really the only FAB I reallly liked. He's fun, has a great transformation and gimmick. Sure he's not totally faithful, but he looks like Frenzy.

    I'm sure that if they took another crack it and took out the disc shooting gimmick they could do something great

    I tihnk he is a fun toy but in my opinion he doesn't display well with the other movie cons. I keep him with my other real Gears in radio mode. So if you want a fun toy then yes, if you want a display piece then probably not
