    Are ppl happy with these guys? I'm so hovering over the order button right now but I just can't bring myself to press it with two possible versions of MP's that I may/may not like.

    Talk me into/out of it!!

    Ummmm, if your concern is the MP SWs, then these aren't worth your time because they aren't tapes.

    I'm not bothered about alt mode.....it's the robot mode. Repainted these guys look fucking awesome. Size wise I can live with but the back of my mind is both third party/official MP's.

    I dunno.....

    It ain't like they are peanuts either in a size/money sense.

    unless you actually want to pose them in front of your SW. If you want to hide them away in his chest, then no don't get these.
    If you want them to actually look cool, get them or wait to see if MP SW comes with any :)

    Honestly, I'd wait for the MP ones. I own them, but I'd trade them in a heartbeat for more traditional looking ones scaled with MPs that have MP articulation.

    If you want them for classics, yes. I'd it is for MP, no.

    I have mine with MPs too. They're great, but were one of PEs first bots. The paint isn't nearly as sharp as SFX. But I love mine.

    I love mine. But yeah, for classics they're perfect. For MP probably not.

    They're ok. One of the gatling guns doesn't attach that well on my blue one though. And his leg tends to pop off easily.

    I like them a lot and think they go well with MP figures if you REALLY want put them there. Size isn't too bad when you look at some clips from the old show.

    Of course, nobody really knows what Takara is going to do with the MP line so your guess is as good as anyones concerning a MP Rumble/Frenzy. Maybe it happens... maybe it doesn't.

    I use them happily in my display case along with my MP figures. Their bot modes are great and they make neat little target masters.

    Holy shit man those pics are awesome! Yeah I see them as the real little guys...barely upto the seekers/Soundwave's knees so after looking at your pics they look bang on.

    Love the Frenzy's paint job too. Also you are the first person I've seen to give them faction symbols and they look all the more better for it. I'd paint their back guns silver tho ;) 

    Think you've sold me on them tbh.

    I love PE Rumble, and Frenzy, in my opinion those too figures have set the bar on what is a good version of these two characters. Even if Masterpiece versions were to be made that were better, and that is a VERY high bar, I would not regret purchasing these too fantastic figures!
