    It’s a shame Soundwave is dead, because in the ROTF video game he had this great ability where he made Rumble an AOE pod that deployed occasionally to bring down buildings (he also had another pod that resembled Laserbeak).

    In any case, if Rumble appeared (as a separate character, not as a minion) I think he’d be a steamroller. It’d work with the name as well as with the piledriver appendages that are his characteristic.

    Oh, and he’d be voiced by Michael Buffer (would make a great in-joke, as it refers to his name and to scrapping).

    I could actually see him as a sports car. A blue sports car.

    "A toilet!", Michael Bay exclaimed with a smile and devious look in his eye.

    Rumble was a rhino in the comics - I would've loved to have seen that on film.

    :lol  "You know, 'cause "Rumble" is like when you're stomach's feeling awful and you gotta' take a huge s**t!"

    That's actually pretty cool. He wouldn't really have to use his alt mode for anything - other than establishing ONCE when he's introduced; just show an unsuspecting construction worker using his jackhammer when suddenly it jumps away, tearing up the sidewalk and transforms into Rumble.

    You see that giant robot who looks like Cloverfield? That's Rumble, according to Overlord Baldernon.

    I like to think of him as Onslaught. Also I agree on both a rhino, toilet, and jackhammer but I need help on choosing one

    NO. Not in Movieverse.

    FISRIG

    Frenzy is Silver, Rumble is Gold.

    (But for the record, Frenzy had BLUE eyes in almost every tie-in media but the game)

    Devcon.


    But as for Rumble, maybe a black and red modern boombox, much larger than Frenzy. I say Black and Red because Frenzy is already filling in the blue side of the FIBRIR/FIRRIB argument with his blue eyes.

    Huh. I always thought he had a blue-ish tint to him. But I guess it was just the eyes.

    He was always in the dark too(like in air force one, with lots of blueish lights around him), but his alt mode is clearly silver in the shots we get to see it.

    A handheld jackhammer... that could just work, what with his stature, his Napoleon complex and his pile-driving ability. Yeah, it sounds great.

    I think if we go the intelligent route in terms of Rumble causing some kind of earthquake effect then probably a jackhammer or steamroller (for the drum arms).
    However, if we go the Michael Bay thought process route:
    Rumble would be a concept Transformer. He changes from beans to a fart.

    *Sam farts loudly*

    Optimus Prime (jumping to alert): "Decepticon Rumble is attacking!!"

    Sam (wafting his hand behind himself): "Whooo! Food transformation complete!"

    Simmons: "You should Dutch Oven Carly with one of those."

    Dutch: "Me Oven?"

    Oprtimus: "Sam - give me your arse face!!"

    *Sam farts in fear and this time follows through*

    Optimus: "A brown protoform!"

    And so on...
