    Yeah, early on in my TF travels as an adult I was very into this type of stuff, but I have not kept an eye on it over the last 10-15 years or so. So this did not ring a bell when seen on eBay. Or maybe I fully saw and read it at some point and just 100% deleted it from my internal HD. :)  Either way there are probably others who never saw it either so can't hurt. Gonna link that blogspot site tho.

    I will throw myself in the “Rumble is blue, actually” camp lol. It’s not that serious though.

    This is gold. Shockwaves personality being (left on cybertron), Reflector not having one.

    Bumblebee’s being “Little Guy” is so adorable. My god I love this. Not for $7 500 (American I think? That means closer to $10 000 Canadian).

    Like how the toys and comics had it FIBRIR, but the cartoon had it swapped.

    Has it ever been said why?

    FIRRIB, FIBRIR, you're all wrong. Everyone knows they were both red.

    Rumble is the blue one, Frenzy is the red one. This is the hill I will die on!

    I want a story where they swap their colours all the time to try and confuse everyone with only Soundwave or him and Megatron being able to tell the difference.

    You are all wrong everyone knows this is the only true answer to the ribfir debate!

    People said that it because the animation guide said to switch out rumble and frenzy colors for different shots and the misunderstanded that to make frenzy red and rumble blue

    There was even an auction of an earlier version of the famous 1984 box back image (the one with Optimus and Starscream front and center) that replaced Starscream with Skywarp and he had green parts instead of black. Wish I could find the image.

    Amen. Well and the original toys - which happen to agree :)  Rumble is red, cartoon made the first of (many) colour errors! :)

    I have always treated Rumble as red because of the toy packaging, never even noticed he was blue in the cartoon until I was older...and this took a few more posts than I predicted(14 instead of 10), yet here we are again, LOL.
