    Here are a couple of teaser pics for my upcoming alt: Rumble!

    I had thought about doing Frenzy as a blue RX8 but I really wanted a black one. I just love that car in black (of course, I really dig it in any color). I just can't get enough RX8.

    I was hoping that you would do a black/gold repaint of jazz for stepper, but I like this idea just as much.

    Not according to the toys, he's not. ;) 

    Me too. I think it'll go well, personally. All of my others have, IMO.

    Thanks for the support. I had given the 'Stepper from Jazz idea' some thought before but since he is being released (under the American name for him, Ricochet) as a WRX, I didn't want to double up on the character.

    The only way I expect to double up on a character is if Hasbro decides to do a Motormaster or Ultra Magnus (I am making them both from Prime once he comes out and we have not heard who they are remolding prime into, if anyone).

    Of course, they could always do one of the previous customs I have done. If that occurs, eh, whatever. I'll know mine was first, at least. :D

    The first pic is of Frenzy, you can't deny it!

    Anyway, yeah. Frenz' it up! Ravage is getting uppity, he needs one of the android cassettes to put him back in his place.

    Yes, yes, yes, the first pic, the cartoon one, is Frenzy. The other two, same color scheme as the cartoon but on the figure, are Rumble.

    Ok, how about we compromise: here will be the tag

    RBL (con insignia) FZY

    Everyone is happy that way. He can be both. :D

    No, that one would be like this: FZY (con insignia) RBL. So there! :p 

    To everyone that says they canna wait to see it completed - I'm beginning work on this one today so I hope to have him done by the end of the week.

    The painting tends to only take a day and a half or so. I guess I'll take a couple of pics w/ my phone.

    Thus far I have it disasembeled completely. I don't think ya' really need pics of that. :) 

    Once I am done here, I am going to lay some parts out so they can getthe first coat of paint.

    If I had the skill to make the ground kit, I seriously would make a Razerwire. I'm sure you think I am being facetious. Believe me when I say I am not... and that is not just so I can beat you.

    If I could actually get it done right, I'd sell it to you for cost - figure, paint, tape (masking), and shipping. I just don't think I could do the front end justice.

    Do you have a larger version of the picture so I can see the details? I'll PM you my e-mail addy so you can send it to me if you do.

    Since it was asked for, here is a quick progress pic. Thus far I have painted the entire exterior of the car black. I am about to do a few touch- ups and do all of the hand painting I can for now.

    I still have to buy my red spray paint so I can do the limbs in red, as they should be.

    I'm sorry about the quality but it was a quick shot w/ my phone.
