    Ask any Autobot who the toughest of them all is and you might be surprised at the answer. Sure, you'll get a few bots who'll say Ironhide or Omega Supreme, but the majority will say Roller.

    Primes partner since Optimus was given the Matrix of Leadership, there hasn't been a battle, skirmish or hostile negotiation that he hasn't been at the forefront of. Acting as personal scout to Optimus, Prime also trusts Roller for his cool head, and ability to think a few steps ahead in battle.

    [​IMG]

    Able to target objects no smaller than 1 square meter from over 1000 feet, he's an invaluable sniper and with four shots to a target, you bet his misses are far and few between.

    For the past few solar cycles, he has been on the moons of Cybertron, working to quash the Mini-Con rebellion there.

    But, hearing of The Obliticons goals to destroy Optimus, he has taken up his duty as Prime's wingman once again.

    Project:Jackhammer Complete. An updated Roller from my twisted little mind. :thumb  I filled the chest in with epoxy, and rebuilt the chest and midsection from random pieces lying around on my desk. Thanks for looking.

    Love it. Great work! The metal finish looks awesome. That's Optimal Optimus' canopy, right?

    Im flabbergasted. My mind can not wrap around the awesomeness of this Roller. Truly turned him into an amazing figure. My only critique is the head in alt mode. I LOVE IT!!!!

    2 things: I'd really like to see the back. Pretty important part of the bot, ya know? :p  Second, my only complaint: I really wish you'd given him a waist. It's such an easy mod to do, and after all the other mods you made, it would've really set him off, and kept him from having such an elongated torso.

    Sculpting that front of him must have been a PAIN. Your shop still produces some of the top figures that I show off to my non-collector friends and say "see, this is what people do with em."

    Excellent work.

    Awesome. You continue to push the envelope of your own work, man :thumb 

    I have to say aside from what's already been posted, I'd like to see a canopy/cockpit that flows a bit more with the figure. I think a smaller, more teched out part would make this figure look even better.

    Aside from that, I want one! :)
