    Soooo the piledrivers are just the flanks of the tank mode? Uber-weak execution there Hasbro.

    I can dig it... Now I just need to see box art that does not directly name each robot and has a bio dedicated to RIBFIR/RIRFIB

    Well......if that's the best they can do, I won't complain. Just as long as it does not hamper anything else.

    They may really be one tank each, but perhaps there is a combined alt mode as well.

    Are they both supposed to combine into one tank or something? I don't see how they could, the first pic we saw was obviously one tank/one robot.

    personally this is a must have toy for me.

    I'm just wondering why the advanced info on this toy. says both frenzy & rumble will combine to form a voyager sized tank.

    is that pic above of a deluxe or voyager sized robot??

    is there another cassette bot comming?

    will both of them combine somehow?

    I could see their being some combined gimmick other wise why sell them in a 2 pack when the line is actually a little empty when it comes to repaints so far

    Maybe they're just a tad too small to sell as scouts? Too big for legends?

    I don't think two-pack necessarily means combining gimmick.

    The guy over at Seibertron with the "inside source" has said that they will combine to form a tank-mode of some sort.

    Personally, after seeing the picture of one of the figures, I'm having a hard time seeing two of them combining to form one larger tank. Still, would be cool if they could, just not something I see happening. Also, given the size they appear to be, and the fact they cost the same as United Lugnut, I wouldn't be surprised if there was something else in the set other than themselves.

    Pretty cool that they managed some sort of pile drivers as a nod back to the cartoons.

    I'm going to go ahead and state that Rumble and Frenzy do not have a combining gimick. If they do it will be weaker than the Animated Twins combined Jet mode.

    -We have seen pictures and one figure becomes a full tank.
    -A poster here translated some Japanese text and the only word he couldn't make out turned out to mean, arms turn into hammer arms...no other words in the entire text mentioning combining.
    -All we have to go with about the combining is the Takara Voyager price point for both figures and some HE TELL ME post from an unreliable site.

    Either Takara is going to over charge everyone, or Hasbro will release these guys individually at the correct price point, OR the set comes with something we have not heard about yet to justify the Takara price.

    My 2cents

    Thanx
