    After his battle with Bumblebee, Soundwave realized that lf he was to remain on earth, he needed a form that was capable for battle.
    Taking the form of a Stealth fighter, he teams up again with his scout, Rumble. Together, they can gain all the intel they need on N.E.S.T. operations.

    For years Rumble has worked with Soundwave, acting as a scout during his long range recon missions.
    For earth, he takes on the form of single manned Stealth jet, able to slip by enemy lines and transform undetected.

    By directing his powerful supersonic engines at the ground, he can cause earthquakes and tremors measuring 7 on the Richter scale.
    That's why they call him Rumble. He's always liked the name.

    First things first, Rumble is blue :p 

    Before I pass out at my desk, here are my latest 2 customs, Soundwave and Rumble. The moment I picked up ROTF Mindwipe, Ive been wanting to make him Soundwave. I added his G styles rocket launchers from a Robotech Valkyrie kit, thanks to Zildjan.

    I made some head mods to Mindwipes head, which I think looks very G1, and painted up his buddy Sjystalker into Rumble.

    This is a great call with these molds, bud. Your work is top notch as always :thumb 

    (A second Skystalker in "battle mode" could be used as a custom Lazerbeak, too :wink: )

    Wow! Never crossed my mind that he is also a dead ringer for Soundwave, most excellent! :bay

    I think the only reason I'm accepting a blue Rumble right now is because we already had the silver Frenzy die on-screen. You win this round. =P

    I'm curious how a bit more yellow might've looked on 'Wave's chest, but I figure it might've goofed the alt mode a bit and really like what little you managed to get in there. *nod*

    And wha's this about the lil' spy plane being single-manned? I thought it was an unmanned plane~ Does 'e just shove a poor hapless human into the twisting, churning mechanisms inside and call it a day? ^^;;

    A Mindwipe into a Soundwave, definitely one of the coolest ideas I've seen.

    The Mindwipe mold does make a great Soundwave - reminds me of the Galaxy Force incarnation. Great eye for the molds, here, and the paintjob of course is as expected. :thumb :

    I think Soundwave is very good. Nice nod to the GF version as well.

    Unfortunately, Rumble is RED. Not blue. Oh well. You gonna make Frenzy as well?

    It's funny. I was just talking to ALPHAMAGNUS about this very idea, not 3 days ago.
    Except I saw Skystalker more as a Ratbat. Awesome job bro.
    Now GTFO of my head !!!!

    RIBFIR :p

    Fantastic custom, and great idea.

    In the movie verse, Frenzy is Silver, so what does that make Rumble...Gold maybe?

    Always love your style of that drybrushed surface coloured look. It's hard to describe, but it's kickass. And that goes for your SW+R too.

    To autobotx23, I have an idea that I would like to share with you:

    Retool (cut-off the antenna) and repaint another ROTF Voyager Mindwipe and ROTF Scout Skystalker as "ROTF Blaster and Raindance"!

    That way your ROTF Soundwave (and Rumble) will have an archenemy like Soundwave and Blaster were originally in Generation 1!
