    These are my upgraded cassettes, Steel Jaw and Frenzy. Similar to the Ratbat recolor from the cyberton toy, the concept is that the characters wanted to upgrade but still keep some parts/functions of their old forms. I also gave them Target masters. It is kinda like they grew wiser and when they upgraded they took on less experienced partners, to show them the ropes.
    Steeljaw kept his beast mode and can do a BW Ravage mode, with the beast head. The robot head is a little small but that was due to the space available for the head. The vehicle mode allows faster travel on roads but the beast mode gives him better mobility off road.
    Frenzy has two sets of launching missles and he can still do the ground pounding, with the missle launchers acting as the pile drivers. His fingers give him precise placement of the vibrations to control the fissures he creates. His Target master can also ground pound.

    You made SteelJaw into a triple changer...almost quadruple. There's got to be a prize somewhere for that.

    It's Frenzy in my world. If you think of him as Rumble, that's fine.

    You painted Frenzy in the wrong colour. :( 

    Anyways, love Steeljaw, it's always good to see Dropkick get some love as someone other than Kickback and his official repaint, Salvage. The beast mode is great as well.

    Rumble just looks way too much like Armada Demolisher I almost didn't notice it was painted. Much prefer Steeljaw.

    I like these. Reminds me of the kinds of mods I would do back before we started getting very LITERAL Classics renditions of G1 characters. It was so hard to get an exact likeness to a character, I had to come up with more interpretive versions.

    The Rumble/Frenzy is almost there but not quite for me... like he needs just a few small touches to really sell him as an updated/upgraded R/F... maybe a distinct visor on his face, and the helmet "prongs" of the original design?

    Steeljaw is pretty cool... I always wanted to try to get some of the "beast" cassettes to work as bot modes for regular vehicles (sort of like Alt Ravage), but I never quite made it work. This is sweet though!
