    Did this guy ever even come out? I'm not hearing much about him, and nothing showed up when I searched on Youtube. All I know is that there is a United 2-pack version.

    Also, did Hasbro ever announce if they're doing a Frenzy?

    Well, that's a bummer.

    Looks like I'll have to check if any of my local hobby places get the Takara one in.

    I still have a preorder in on the United set. Will it ever come in?

    man, I wish I could find my post back when they were first announced. I totally called that the American release would never happen. Either only one would come out or neither. Hasbro apparently (I say this jokingly) HATES rumble and Frenzy being together more than they had releasing skywarp and thundercracker in the same line.

    You know, I could've sworn someone posted a retail finding. I remember seeing a picture of it on a peg next to that Hubcap repaint a while back. Must've been a Chinese sighting.

    You sure it wasn't with Hubcap's repaint along with Breacher's repaint?

    Cancelled.

    You can blame the retailers for that. Considering how Rumble is actually important they'll find another way to release it. They usually don't want new molds to go to waste.

    Hasbro NEVER officially solicited his wave for release. He did make an appearance on Hasbro's website, he was never given a release date.

    No, you saw a chinese "leak" which also featured the repaints of Hubcap and Breacher, also in package.

    So yeah, Rumble's wave reached a pretty advance point when it was cancelled, but unless he starts popping up at Ross or TJ Maxx, his wave is completely cancelled at the moment.

    I could have swore I saw one of these at a TJ Maxx, but maybe I was tripping!?! I just remember seeing it...thinking wow, that looks G1-esque, but then I flipped over the package to look at his alt mode and wasn't impressed w/ the tank so I passed on it. To me Rumble is and always will be Soundwave's blue tape. Anyhow, pretty sure I saw one, but then again and from the sounds of things, I could be mistaken. Sighting was on the 4th of June because I was on my way to see Hangover II and that's the day I saw it. At least, I think....(scratching my head)....

    It's possible you saw Breacher who is blue and a tank. Also he was getting a repaint in the wave.

    You know I want to have this figure. It had the G1 look, but he was a tank and my thoughts were cool at least he can do something than being a casette (in which that mode is classic), but after hearing the cancellation (thanks retailers, you dumbasses) it'll be hard to even find the Takara release, but maybe from Amazon or shivers ebay.

    I wouldnt be surprised to see them pop up after the movie stuff starts slowing down early next year or even packed in with the next movie subline like HFTD. I mean they have the molds Im sure theyd like to get $$ out of them.

    I totally agree here, and I think Hasbro will do what they can to see that some retailer gets to offer these.

    Truth be told I just caved in and got the united set.
    Got it for a pretty good deal here on the Junkion forums.
    If you guys are lucky maybe someone will be a bro to you too :)

    It was fairly obvious from the start that distribution on at least one of the two was probably going to be messed up.

    Aside from which, Fr..Ru... the red one is likely to be more of a dark orange anyway.

    Was easier to just preorder the United one at retail cost and be done with it.

    I know I'm not going to pay $90+ for a set of them.
