    Wrapping up the Wave 2 Titans Return Legends, if on Decepticon turf you should tumble, you'll find a gallery of Rumble! (that's Frenzy - Tony Bacala)

    Check out the writeup on the frontpage here: Titans Return Rumble Photoshoot - Transformers News - TFW2005

    And check out the full gallery here: Rumble - Reflector @ TFW2005

    Rumble, Ravage, and Laserbeak together in their device mode. The similar theme in their tablet details - and synchronised clocks - is what sold me on the set being a team of espionage experts.

    Great set of pics. I enjoy this figure very much. That said; nothing on MP Rumble. Of course that\'s just pointing out the obvious. Why no photos of a Titan Master riding these?

    That's actually a very nice face sculpt. The tank mode is neat. Shame about the hollowness in his arms and legs though.

    I have him. I'm not keen on his dull gold chest deco. He's all around bland to me. Great head sculpt. The execution is just lacking to me. I don't think I'm replacing the United molds just yet. I'm hoping Takara does something nicer.

    Where abouts in the 30 plus years of lore did Frenzy and Rumble start getting their identities switched and confused and so forth ? , because Frenzy has all ways been the purplish blue one and Rumble is the red one ....Idk though ...lol , I am loving this head sculpt though

    holy....i never noticed the clocks were synchronized at all....i just...never looked that hard...that's a very cool touch that they didn't need to do but seeing that they did makes a big difference to me. i love that little touch.


    also, guys come on....leave the rumble/frenzy is blue/red thing alone for one thread involving these guys...we're all supposed to be adults...stop acting like children over this. you can name him mrs butterworth for all i care but on the package is rumble and it will be cataloged as rumble...just...leave it alone guys please.

    Bah. Frenzy.. Rumble.. small time.. Where is Enemy? The true king of the tapebots!

    On the furryrib trigger front, if only they\'d given the originals different weapons and kept to that in the show, it would have been easy. Gvie one pile drivers and make the ends wedged for the other Just call the one with the pile drivers Rumble and the wedged Frenzy. Would have been easy as pie, no matter the color.

    Now that I think about it, I wonder.. if the color scheme of the other one is close enough.. could we kitbash our own Titans Return Enemy.. This I'm going to have to keep an eye on.

    While he and Rewind are certainly the weakest of the three cassette bots, he still is really good.

    Heck just the paint work and the new head makes him a MAJOR improvement over Rewind who i found quite dull and boring. Easily the weakest of Wave one. Then FRENZY comes in and improves on the mold and making it interesting for me.

    Seriously hope Hasbro gets around to doing the blue guy, right now he sits on my shelf as Frenzy so I now need a Rumble.

    The toys in G1 were blue=Frenzy, red=Rumble. But the cartoon always showcased the opposite. Just depends on your nostalgia.

    This is a debate that will never die lol. No one is being immature about it. I was just giving Sol Fury a hard time :) 

    Also I'm right and stuff.

    Whoa whoa whoa.

    Hold on a sec. you think this mold is worse than the Buzzsaw/Laserbeak mold?

    Not joking, honest question

    I was thinking about Enemy earlier too. I'd be all too happy to buy that. He'd definitely be the king of the cassettes for me.
