    Yes. There were already enough new characters.

    Even if Bay had agreed to let the guy's Jeep be in the movies, it most likely wouldn't have lasted long because Bay would have probably had the character killed off. There were already a lot of 'bots anyways so he would just have been another underused background character. But i have to admit that Jeep looks super cool, would have made a nice vehicle mode.

    Every fan who is able to bring their car to the set should have that car shoehorned into the already cumbersome script and have millions of dollars worth of computer modelling work done to turn it into an official transformer that will have several seconds worth of screentime.

    Sounds like a winning idea to me.

    Your psychologically compelling and delightfully blunt logic appeals to every sense of pride I can muster. I salute you.

    Aernaroth knocks another one out of the park.

    Would it have been fun? Sure, especially for the fan who made that Rollbar. But the logistics behind actually having it in the movie prove that the cons far outweigh the potential pros.

    It could have made for a cool contest, but even then the licensing and complications it would add to actually making the film would have been monumental.

    Yes, if Bay let it in, it would of been Jolt all over again. A last minute character who doesn't talk, has less than 5 minutes of screen time, and is probably never present in most of the scenes.

    Who is this Jolt you speak of?....
    As for "Rollbar" if Bay had used him he would of changed his name to "Dipstick" meaning fans tryin to Dip in on his money just to Stick their wanna be transformer vehicle in the movie.

    Jolt was the blue Volvo in ROTF who did nothing but assist Ratchet in attaching Jetfire's remains to the resurrected Optimus Prime so Prime could defeat Megatron and The Fallen.

    Volvo....nonononono I think you meant Volt.

    Jolt only existed to promote the Chevy Volt. The only hybrid that looks cool.

    Volvo? He was a Chevy Volt. Really pretty car just not pretty enough to keep Jolt off the 'Characters thrown in the background' list :(
