    hey guys,ok so making my own version of frenzy rumble extinction has become pure obsession by now!

    i wanna put my own spin on his design but stay true to this amazing combiner (my fav so far...)i love the dinobots and just want to make this for myself to get better at making combiners really and because i love the figure and cant afford one haha

    anyhow iv spent months identifying the parts but i just cant get my head around these 2 highlighted in the pics,to be honest i dont think they are TF'S....

    if anyone can help i will love you forever!its driven me mad figuring out all the little thing going on here,and respect to frenzy rumble for making this a total pain in the ass to replicate!

    "Hey guys, I am gonna put my own spin on it by copying it down to every last small piece!" :lol 

    Good luck with this, it's easily one of his better, more intricate customs.

    cool ill check it out!

    i figured hes a pretty busy guy and he proberbly gets a lot of peopla asking him how to make his customs so i really dont wanna hassle him with it,i just hope i can do his character some justice!

    well there is no need for that haha,the only bits im not gonna copy are the bits i cant figure out haha,hey after all its not like FR or any of us guys never "borrowed" someone elses design!cue the debate!!

    They probably aren't actually Transformer parts. There are other toylines out there.

    If you're gonna put your own spin on the design, you don't actually have to follow f_r's design to the smallest degree and THEN alter the design.

    I mean, breaking it down and skipping the I.D.'d Inferno flaps, the only thing you would honestly need a Transformer to replicate anything close to the design is that Autobot symbol on the combiner chest (which could have come from a number of sources, although the Armada Hoist and Cybertron Wing Saber come to mind). The tops of the legs look blocky enough that any suitable, similar sized parts (I.E. the tops of the legs from Cybertron Metroplex) would be good enough to substitute and nobody would notice the difference, and they'd serve the exact same function.

    Lastly, about that odd part behind wheelie...all it seems to do is just become Extinction's belt buckle. That's it. Other than that, it looks like some kind of vent thing, so you could scratchbuild a replacement and it would look just as good.

    i agree with you,there are many parts of this i have scratch built and it will look completely different.the parts i highlighted are parts that i do want to keep the same,id like to keep the integrity of the character because i love the design and because its fr design and creation i dont wanna call it extinction if its not....

    but i found god ultra magnus for the logo and i agree with you on the wheelie thing,its just id reall like to get that chest similar to his.cheers

    Looks to be a heavy customization of the Universe 2.0 Legend.
