    WIP classic / universe 2.0 Rumble, UPDATED 03/03/2009

    here is my take on a classic rumble, just about finished the mods on him, and then he will get painted (cartoon blue) at the weekend.

    He does fit into G1 sondwave chest ( if its the same size as blasters ) my only problem is I'm using MP3 SW in my classic line up

    I am planning to do the same thing and have a frenzy too, also working on Rat bat, not sure about lazerbeak and buzzsaw yet, any suggestions would be welcome.

    hopefully get some decent pics when he is painted too

    Well, what do you's think?

    Here is some paint on him

    added his piledrivers, parts forming, personally don't think you could do it justice without the part forming

    Sweet! I need to do this one myself.
    Please share info on where head came from. It looks like it could be from a legends Starscream but I haven't seen those in stores yet. Is this from a legends Starscream?
    I have seen torso which is legends SW.

    head is Cybertron legends starscream (or any of the repaints) it should be easy to get one as many of them as there are: Cyb Starscream, GF EZ Starscream, Cyb Sunstorm, SDCC Skywarp, BC Ramjet, Universe Ramjet, Universe Thrust, GF EZ Clear Starscream.


    This is a sweet custom, man, heck the only thing I see that knocks it from perfect is that the head sticks up in alt mode! very nice. I might have to copy this myself to add to my ravage and Steeljaw cassettes.

    I was just thinking the same thing, trying to figure out what went into making him. Redline already ID'd the head, I'm thinking the chest came from Legends Cyb Soundwave, and the "wings" on the back are obviously just styrene.

    What else, chlokai? Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery :thumbs2:

    Modification-wise, I'd like to try to do something a little different with the head, and hinge some pile-drivers to the forearms that could flip behind them when either not in use, or in tape mode. Will be a little tricky, but I think some creative thinking will find a solution. When making a scratch or kit piece like this, the sky is the limit ;) 

    Not yet, he's not finished, but don't worry, he'll get a thread!

    thanks for the feedback,

    the head is from legend cyb starscream and chest from legend cyb soundwave, legs are mainly from cyb jetfire, as they fold up quite nicely at the bottom, but they do need shaved off at either side and the arms are from various legends (starscream and soundwave mainly)

    articulation wise he has
    head - balljoint
    shoulders - balljoint
    elbows - balljoint
    waist - rotates 360
    knees - balljoint

    good luck to any1 else who try's it, it was much easier than I thought, which makes me surprised I havn't seen 1 before. I would also see what legends hounds head looks like on him, but i dont have the mold.

    Too awesome. I've been trying to look at Mini-Cons and Legends figures to see how I could get a Rumble & Frenzy together. You seem to have cracked that code, so to speak.

    he has been updated with some paint, still needs a few bits sanded and more details done, but this is basically him finished

    do you have a scratch-awl, or a panel-lining pen? I think you ought to put in just a few lil detail lines for the cassette mode. I like the way you painted the chest.

    I do plan to do something with the tape mode, thinking of getting some paper thin styrine to add some detail so it isn't just painted on, I did manage to get the head to fold down a bit closer so it doesnt stick out as much in tape mode, had to loose the balljoint though
