    Come on in, check out the new pics :D 

    Well, since the overwhelming majority voted my WIP Roller be Universe Countdown, I started from a different angle.

    Behold: Roller!

    I hope everyone enjoys the choice of head. I think it's a neat option, considering the Prime homage w/o looking EXACTLY like his big buddy :) 

    BFG's and paint to come!

    I have no less than 5 unfinished projects in/around my workspace. It's nice to have one of them be a "simple" one.

    4/15/09: New pics, a bit more detail and he's ready to reassemble.

    4/18/09: New new pics, ready for decals to be made and a few touch-ups.

    This is a brilliantly simple idea, and a nice affordable alternative to the Battle Rollar figure.

    Even though the vehicle mode doesn't really suggest a small all-terrain vehicle, the general shape certainly recalls Roller, and I like the idea of a smaller Prime-like head, to show the kinship between them.

    Looking forward to seeing it painted and tricked out. :)

    Thanks fellows!

    I agree with the appearance factor, but there's a story to connect the alt mode to the little fellow.

    I'm fancying the idea of Roller jumping in front of Optimus: "Stand back Prime, I've got this one!"

    Thanks! I have many thoughts regarding the origin of the "Movieverse" Roller seen here. He'll definitely be more of a standalone 'bot than what we're used to from G1.

    He already looks tremendous next to Voyager OP, I can't wait till I slap the paint to him.

    [spam]He's completely primered and basecoat drybrushed. I'll pick up the blue today on the way home from work to complete the vehicle body, then it's all in the details. Final assembly and touchups should happen tomorrow or Thursday. :D [/spam]

    More photos tonight!

    Thanks a ton, man. I've got just a bit of touching-up to do(rubs, blah), then I have to paint his weapons and then I can post alt mode pictures and full body shots.

    this works extremely well for a Movie-verse Roller. I don't think it fits aesthetically into Universe, though.
