    I have been working on the Voyager Animated Prime trailer (posted earlier) and posted a sketch of an Animated Roller idea to go with Prime. Well I got so obsessed with the idea that I had to make it.

    This isn't done yet, it's only primed and missing most details. I still have to do a final sanding and add several small panels and the windshield (see drawing). I built it from scratch (minus the wheels) and just had to show off the little guy. I hope to finish it up fairly soon.

    One other question-

    When done, should it be silver or dark blue?

    I'm for dark blue since that's the color G1 Roller is. Still, that's a pretty neat little car!

    Well if your gonna go with G1 toon it should be Gray.

    But I got to thinking since he is going to be a drone to a Firetruck Optimus Prime you could go with Firehouse Red.

    So, was the original roller blue or gray?
    So far I've got two votes each.

    The Roller toy was blue as well as gray because the entire OP toy set (OP, trailer, and Roller) was from Diaclone as "Battle Convoy", and the little seats are meant to hold diaclone figures. I think you should do a custom scheme incorperating both blue and gray, that way you can have the correct color from both examples of Roller yet be its own unique little death buggy scout.

    He should be dalmation-spotted! He could be a sort of firehouse/firetruck dog.
