    Another Rollar? I R Confused.

    TFC Toys did the transforming Battle Rollar. Is this another transforming one, but with changes to fit the look of the MP figures more?

    If so... me want.

    I don't think this one will be transformable. It's just what Roller should have always been at the MP level (vs the Movie-esque transformable Roller that doesn't look at all part of the MP line).

    It looks like they're going for a masterpiece-sized, THS-02 Roller. Which is great!

    At this rate, I'll have more aftermarket than licensed figures.

    I already have Rollar and the MP04/MP02 set. I'm more than happy with both. No need for a third. I'm not sure I like the description of the third Roller anyway.

    Isn't the MP2-MP4 one just plastic with no gimmick at all (basically, an oversize version of G1 Roller)?

    just wondering, do most people put their Battle Rollar with the movie figures? I was originally going to have him with my classics, but he just seems to fit in so much better with the movie figs.

    Why the heck are they calling it Battle Rollar? That is TFC's name for their own version. :lol

    To each his own, but I put my Battle Rollar with the movie figures. It does not look well with the Masterpiece or Classics lines to me. He combines with Movie prime anyway.

    If this company makes a Masterpiece style Roller, I will put that in the Masterpiece line. I have not gotten either of the two upsized G1 rollers, because they don't seem to fit well in any line to me. Too big for G1, too plain for Masterpiece. Just my opinion.

    They should just call it, '2nd-time-in-a-week-we-get-more-multi-molds-from-custom-shops' or 'no sale' for short

    Count me in with the folks who put Battle Rollar with the movie figs.
    Now, if someone made a trailer for Movie Prime, either Voyager or leader......

    This one sounds promising though

    1) All leather interior
    2) Heated seats
    3) 10 spkr Bose surround system
    4) chrome wheels

    light up lights is a bad idea because as we all know battery packs tend to make Tfs look aweful.

    Examples:

    G1 Omega Supreme
    G1 Skylynx
    G1 Trypticon
    G1 Galvatron

    G1 Shockwave and Animated Leader Ultra Magnus, Bulkhead, Megs are the only exceptions to the rule


    other cruddy toys include but not limeted to: Leader Movie Prime, Leader Movie Megs and I can go on and on.

    Battery packs limit what other details you can do with the toy.

    please don't make it look like the crappy G1 Roller that is all I realy care about.

    This isn't TFC's Battle Rollar.
    The linked thread is more like a brainstorm disussion posted by IG (another garage company).
    Apparently they are planning another not transformable roller for the MP series.
