    Yes, that's right. Rumble OR Frenzy. I plan on not even going there and I encourage all of you to not do so either.

    So, I present Rumble. I don't know if it would be classics, universe, war within, or what not. I just know it's my idea. However, if someone has done this before, feel free to correct me and credit will be given where its due.

    I always like Rumble and Frenzy's pile driver arms, but its hard to incorporate them in a figure without it part forming. Luckily, a program on the discovery channel found me a way around that. Apparently, there's these remote control robots that are equipped with a battering ram to knock down doors, commonly used by the police and such.

    Looking at Energon Signal Flare, I started to get ideas. Removed all the gears in his arm cannon and drilled it out to accomodate a piece of plastic clotheshanger. This way the arm can telescope and be switched out easily between quake maker and regular hand. Cannons were made with fodder, easily fit into the back and hands.

    I find that this guy has a pretty similar body structure with Rumble and if nothing else, I can always keep him in bot mode.

    I hope you guys enjoy this, and if anyone wants to try their hand at this, feel free!

    Same here. Great job all the way, no matter if its Rumble or Frenzy. It just looks great from that piledriver arm to a normal hand and so forth, so once again great job.

    Nice job.

    Personally, I feel the "Pile Driver" arms are a cop out interpretation of a really cool ability.

    That looks pretty darn cool! I like your take on him alot. Its kinda werid though, I have some final paint drying right now on something pretty similar on a slightly larger scale. You do need to get another one now and make his . . . were they brothers, clones, or just shop at the same store?
