    I just wanted to show a pic of my newly armed Frenzy (Rumble to get the same when he arrives).

    Piledrivers and guns from the PE Frenzy/Rumble.

    The piledrivers attach to the arm via the piledriver peg and a hole I drilled.

    The guns attach to the piledrivers via another drilled hole. To give the guns on back appearance.

    The guns/pistols can be held in the robots hand as well - Hasbro's policy of putting fist holes on legends. Fits without modding.

    I had an argument about this in the review thread. I found the toy articulate enough and another poster didn't.

    Basically, there's "Transformation Articulation" and "Meaningful Articulation." Since these toys are essentially Bakugans/Zoobles and focused on popping open - most of the toy's movement is from the hinges required for transformation.

    The transformation hinges provide lots of range and movement. However, the poses do not hold because the springs snap them back into position. The only "meaningful" articulation that can hold a pose is the arms moving up and down.

    It's a very articulate figure if you're fiddling with it in your hands. It's a brick if it's sitting on your shelf.

    "Transformation Articulation"
    Arms out/back
    Legs out
    Knees
    Waist up/down
