    Since I dig both the Perfect Effect and the United representations of Rumble and Frenzy, I figured I'd display one of each. If you were doing this, which would you choose to be which? I'm leaning towards PE (the gun) as Frenzy and United (the tank) as Rumble.

    What would you do and why? Here's some pics for reference.

    Owning them both: I've gotta' go with United Rumble and Frenzy. In hands, they're such dead on classics updates to the cartoon that it's not even funny.

    I'm not certain you understand the question! I'm getting both, I just want to display one of each because I don't feel it's all that necessary to their characters for them to be the same (as I think it is for, say, the Lambo Bros, the Sweeps or the Seekers). I like to avoid repeating molds where possible and I don't display multiple versions of the same character. This isn't which should I get, I'm in for both. It's which should be my official which :)

    If that's the case, then whatever you want. I have enough classics to have decepticons divided into Earth and Cybertron forces, so I have United with Music Label Soundwave as earth modes, and then PE with Cybertron Soundwave as Cybertron versions.

    Okay, I mean, I know I can do whatever I want. I was just asking for an opinion, as in, which alt mode fits the personality of which cassetteicon more. I'm not trying to be shitty or anything, I just thought it was a straightforward question.

    ... I answered your question though, so why are you getting defensive? I'm confused?

    Personally, I don't think either alt. mode fits the cassettes, personally. Mostly because neither really attaches or goes inside of a Soundwave character, so that's why I just display them as Soundwave's "minions" on my displays?

    ... or that?

    Rumble as the gun and Frenzy as the tank. I'm not telling you which one I think is blue. :)

    I personally like the red tank more than the blue one, so if it were me I'd go with red United and blue PE.

    I voted for Rumble as the tank and Frenzy as the gun. It kinda suits their names better if you ask me, I dunno.

    Honestly, this is probably not going to be of much help, but I couldn't decide myself so I said "screw it" and displayed both :D

    Red tank in bot mode, Blue gun in bot mode (not saying names!) and i say that because the PE red is inferior to the blue in my eyes.

    I sort of agree, that's what I was leaning toward.

    Because this is a classics shelf, and toys that do that aren't offered. On a G1 shelf that would be the perfect choice. The only choice.

    I'm not getting defensive, it just seems as though you took the time to respond to a question with two possible answers with "I don't care, do whatever you want." That's cool, it just doesn't help.


    Interesting, why those choices? And yeah, I left color out of it just to avoid that debate.

    I think I agree, plus the blue one is vastly more likely to be released in the US someday, making the red tank more gangsta to own.

    I transform a guy or two every time I pass the shelf. My display is partly bot mode, partly alt mode. Who is what changes every day. I have a lot of time on my hands.


    The consensus this far seems to be that the red tank is better and the blue gun is better, and further that Frenzy seems more like a gun, while rumble seems more like a tank, so anyone in the RIRFIB camp can have their cake and eat it, while the RIBFIR crew gets the inferior pairing.

    Pretty much just because I think the PE pile drivers look better, so that's the one I'd use for Rumble.

    I would use the United one as Rumble to take full advantage of the piledriver mode. Though the pile drivers are pretty cool on both PE and United, them tucked back on the United version leaves a significant amount of kibble and doesn't take full advantage of a pretty neat feature. Color choices, IDK though as to which one you feel is which (but that isnt really your question).

    For me, I don't really like either version's alt mode enough to display them as that. I don't really care for the little tank, and don't need a big-ass gun for any of my cons. Added to that the fact that there is starting to get enough D-Cons in my collection that both sets fit in somewhere.

    Rumble as the tank (United), Frenzy as the gun (Perfect Effect) with RIRFIB in effect.
