    I see what could be screw holes immediately behind the feet. Besides, you aren't likely to see many screws on the front of a scout class toy laden with ball joints anyway.

    I'll agree that it look like 'genuine' sculpting style, though exactly what it transforms into ('cept a box shape) is not obvious.


    Way to go, people who 'shopped it pink! You just made "crossdresser Frenzy"! :)

    Nothing overwhelmingly stunning, but definitely on par with (and similar to) many of the great scout class figures from the Energon and Cybertron lines.

    Hope it's fer-real.

    The thing that makes me think this isn't official is the color. Practically every Hasbro prototype we've seen for years has been a medium grey or so.

    If it is real, how long after release (assuming they make it into Rumble) before FP makes "Rumble Arms" upgrade kit, and how much will said kit of awesomeness cost.

    He's got a point... if that's true (wasn't Animated Bulkhead's prototype read?). I don't recall any white Hasbro prototype. My memory's not too good, though.

    Roxanna was a recolor of Eject/Rewind. Who were totally new toys, NOT Frenzy/Rumble remolds. This guy's chest and head, as well as transformation method, is obviously based on Frenzy/Rumble. Please get real.

    I really hope this is an official Scout Rumble/Frenzy for Universe. It might be a Device Label toy as well...

    Btw, transformation is similar to the old one IMHO. Head obviously slides into chests. The arms are on movable panels that can rotate, they most likely clip together above the head. The toes can be hidden in the feet, and the legs can rotate and bend to the sides, just like on G1 Rumble - which leads me to believe the casette details are on his back. I wonder if he has the two holes on his back for his guns as well...

    Looks fanmade to me, and I don't think it looks all that great either. Looks like something average from about five years ago.

    Why I ask ? If Is "Fan Made," for all we know this be custom that someone made or maybe It is a Fan Kit. My point is this was posted on Chinnese web site .One of are fellow members here at TFW Posted the link and quickly got on the front page. Now I've check three other Transfomers web sites and made the front page as well. There's no telling were this pic came from? I know some of the sites are craving for new news but, think they should slow down until they get some soild information on what these things are! People are going nuts and getting hopes for the "RED DRIFT/JAZZ WTF THING".
    Everyone needs to calm down and take breath of freash air... sighs

    Unless it transforms, then I don't care about it. Toys based on TF's that don't transform just aren't really my cup of tea aside from cheap little gashapon style figs. If it does transform, I can't tell what it could turn into based on its shape.

    :lol  It resembles the former mold about as well as it does the latter. IF that transforms into a tape, it will look horrible.

    The problem is the Transformers fandom tends to take misinformation or mistakes and run with it if it isn't quickly corrected.

    People are still calling the tiny Smallest Transforming Transformers the "World's Smallest Transformers", even though that's not the line's name.

    That looks pretty cool. Rumble and Frenzy are long overdue for an update. I wonder what the hell it transforms into??

    Nope, arms are too small for that, and end in a hinge joint, not a ball joint.
