    Since that I think mold was originally planned for Optimus Prime (I think it was for G2, there's a blue/white proto of it floating around), I decided to just repaint the head (the original was red with a red faceplate) and apply faction symbols. I might paint the eyes blue (and the fists?) if I can get to it.

    I don't think I've ever seen that toy before. What the hell is it?

    BW2 Autorollers Autolauncher. In alternate mode, there's a switch on the front. It's ON, it fires discs as it rolls. If it's OFF, nothing happens. On the rear, there's a compartment to store the gun. There's also another switch. Far right and it transforms to bot mode as it rolls; middle is free rolling and far left to transform back to tank. Pretty fun.

    Sorry to nitpick, but the General Optimus Prime was supposed to be a camo repaint of G2 Dirtbag. Why? I don't know. As far as I know, Autolauncher and Autojetter were supposed to be released in G2 before they got cancelled. http://www.rapido-online.net/g2archive/misc/unreleased/autorollers.shtml

    But I like the little changes you made to Autolauncher. It makes more sense for "General" Optimus Prime to be an actual military vehicle.

    Darn. But this head works more for Optimus Prime than Dirtbag's imo. I wanna kitbash Polar claw into an Optimus Prime too, but I have no idea on how to call him.
