    First lets get it straight for this repaint frenzy is red rumble is blue:thumbs2: 

    So after deciding to limit what i buy with first child on way i decided not to buy any prime figures other than soundwave(as he's my fav) well that lasted till i saw an awesome set of repainted prime rumbles on here and i bit the bullet and bought two.

    These are my interpretations, still a clear coat to go on and some drybrushing. Also not dealt with piledrivers but halo is calling so time to put down my brush and kill some grunts

    Please let me know your thoughts so far

    Generally rumble has always been my favourite but i am so happy with how frenzy came out this time

    At least you had the decency to paint your Rumble PURPLE to properly homage the ONE main source in which he was not red (the cartoon). Rumble was red, and in one line, purple. He was never blue.

    These guys look great together whatever the names. With this G1-esque paint job, I'd almost want to see them with more G1 style faces. :D

    Thanks i tried to stick to the colour scheme from the original toys as much as possible, if i had two heads that were more g1 i would swap them but i dont and limited budget make buying figures just for heads a bit crazy lol


    I was lucky i showed the wife the two i'd saw on here and then when we were out shopping last sunday she spots them, sticks two in the basket straight away, the woman just knows me so well and is always supportive of my addictive personality :D

    Yeah, though I do find kitbashers do end up with a lot of spare heads somehow. I get a lot of mine from junkers that I find in yard-sale bins and stuff like that. Of course, I'm not sure whether there are even that many heads out there that would be a good match for G1 Rumble/Frenzy anyway, so who knows?

    Nice find, and nice customs. :)

    Here are some pics of the alt modes, think this will be last time they are transformed, not a big fan of the alt mode, feel the robot is so much sweeter

    Hi mate, brush paint all the way. Keep trying airbrushing but the two kits i've used have not worked well and have made such a mess that i gave up. Eventually i'll spend the money get a decent rig and try again though.

    picked up one these myself tonight. starting paint tomorrow. i must say how much i like that you used purple as main color of rumble! that is way he is supposed to be. ill be using purple on mine as well. not sure if it'll be metallic or not. really depends on what i find at the store. ive rambled on enough. great job on yours!! have you ever tried spray can paints? i use them first and then hand brush details. i wind up spending a lot of time taping off but i think the results are worth it.
