    I found this little treasure on Welcome to Ben's World of Transformers | BWTF that I felt should be shared on TFW2005. (I hope that I'm not breaking any rules by doing this! :redface2: )

    The blue rhino, surprisingly (in G1 Frenzy's color scheme), is Rumble. I'm guessing that IDW didn't get permission to give him the name of a certain stubborn G1 Predacon warrior. :lol 

    The purple gorilla and pink bat are obviously Beastbox and Ratbat.

    Lastly, there's that bird between them all. If you think that is Laserbeak due to his obvious G1 color scheme on it, think again: It's actually Buzzsaw. I can only assume that Laserbeak is the name of a yet-to-be seen Decepticon in the Movieverse.

    Cool, but why is Rumble a Rhino? I this considered canon to the movies?

    Niceness.

    Frenzy is red, though. Hence the phrase "Frenzy is red, Rumble is blue."

    Or a new phrase, "Rampage is red, Rampage is yellow." :D

    Rumble being a rhino is actually kind of amusing.

    Oh, and Beastbox = awesome.

    Kooky stuff.
    Seems someone got Blaster's minion Ramhorn mixed up with one of Soundwave's group, and they tried to fix it by coloring him blue and calling Rumble.

    lol No. Not even. Though the people working on the books try to make it canon. Bless their hearts.

    These character designs are completely horrible lol. No creativity what so ever.

    I'm weird but I kind of like Rumble as a rhino. A rhino on the charge can make the ground rumble so the name sort of fits.

    Are we forgetting Headstrong? The "stubborn G1 Predacon warrior" I mentioned in my thread?

    But Headstrong was never a cassette, and it seems more likely that that could have been an error bred from improper research.

    Split basically answered for me, exactly.
    It seems more logical that someone probably thought: "Hey, I vaguely remember a rhino cassette, lets put that in there." And then by the time someone caught it, it was too late.

    It is kind of clever in that regard. The thing I mostly don't like about it is the fact that they're designs are too literal in that they look like robotic animals. I feel if they're suppose to be part of the movie-verse, they need to look a little more like Ravage did in the film. A little more alien I guess is what I'm saying.

    I think ROTF Rumble was based off of the Autobot Mini-Cassette Ramhorn.

    Obviously you are not familiar with Soundwave's cassettes.

    I kind of dig the idea of Rumble as a Rhino though.

    WRONG!!!!!!

    they got rumble's color wrong, he should be red, sheesh, does this make the 2ND time rumble actually was blue? cause EVERYTHING ELSE rumble was red?

    btw, saying rumble is blue is like saying it is okay to murder if 1 (now i guess 2) people OUT OF 20 say it is ok

    oh, and beastbox KICKS ASS

    It's an opinion, not a fact. Stop making such a big deal about it. end of Ribfir/fibrir argument.
