    Isn't he supposed to be green? I take it Hound is green already and they went with something else?

    Yeah the original throttlebot was green (pea soup) but with Hound already being a green jeep it would've been kinda dumb to make another one.

    The name Rollbar has been used for the member of Ruination in recent memory as well as a Minicon. It's not really tied to anyone in particular, but is just "a name" that gets used and reused. In my opinion, it's not all that bad to have him as a different coloured jeep.

    I used to own an '02 Jeep Wrangler I bought new. It was red, so I was quite a bit excited to see the Rollbar release.

    Now we just need an alt of a 95 Z-28 with a 6-speed tranny. Ooooh.... I loved that car and hope to buy another similar to it.

    That would have made a better Brawn, really. Let Rollbar be the repaint of THAT new mold.

    I did note that the Rollbar I saw at Walmart was a brighter red, almost orangish. Maybe it was the lighting, but I figured they were going to make it a bit darker.

    Isn't the car too big for it to be Brawn? if it was made, it would be as big as Alt Prime

    But eh..Rollbar is orange. Some of the early pics, he looks reddish, but he's decidedly orange. It's a darker orange though..it's a relatively popular car color locally as it's kinda sorta the University of Texas' color. I've actually seen a few "Rollbars" around town.

    I don't remember if it came from an official channel or just speculation, but it was said to work out something like this:

    Altmode: G1 Rollbar (green Jeep)
    Relation: RiD Rollbar (another Swindle repaint)
    Colors: G2 Swindle (orange, but sans the brightly colored camo pattern)
