    Looks good, but...

    *sigh* It's Rumble, not Frenzy... Eesh... I never understood why people INSIST on switching them? Only one media EVER has reversed them, and it was the US G1 cartoon.

    Everything else has it the other way. The US toys & comic. The Japanese cartoon and toys. Even the Alternator...

    *wanders away ranting like an old man*

    I really like this style for busts/statues. Being based more on the box-art or figures, they are really tempting.

    And that's the cue for the G1 comic fans, especially UK ones for whatever reason, to tell you otherwise.

    That's how the RIRFIB/RIBFIR debates go on and on and on and on and... you get the idea!

    Wow I love that. I would like to see all the G1 cassettes honored in that fashion ! Too cool.

    Wish they'd shorten the plexi bar, seems like it would be fragile. Guess Customer service never did take my letter seriously.

    Nice statue I just don't have room for the things. Yes it's a Frenzy is Red world for those of us who never read Comics in the 80's and only had enough money to buy a few TF's when we were young. I never even heard anything different until I got back into TFs around 2000

    I don't think of it as a mis-coloured rumble, but mearly Frenzy based off his G1 US cartoon colours. I still prefer Rumble as the red one, but I'm not going to ignore that in at least one fiction, regardless if it was a mistake, Frenzy was red.

    As for the bust itself, it doesn't look too great. Frenzy's neck is waaaaay too long, and the porportions are just a tad off on both him and Ravage. The cassette details on the base are the best part.

    FIRRIB!

    Frenzy: I think Red and Black is a more "Frenzied" color scheme while the Blue and Purple is too mellow.

    Rumble, his color scheme is humble.

    At least in my opinion

    Nice,and as a kid, i always thought the toys were mislabeled. I mean the TV is the all powerful media in the US. I didn't even know there were comics until the transformers were dead and I always, and still do, feel that reading comics about transformers is boring. I want to see them animated in action. using my imagination is too much work when someone else can animate it for me. Sure other parts of the world, like the UK, are more focused on reading then the US, but the US is lazy we don't read.
