    This was real easy to make! it's the lower legs of Classics 2-Pack Prime glued together. Prime's front wheels where popped off and glued to the rear section, and Prime's windsheild was removed and glued to the front end.The 5 mm peg hole fits most weapons. He looks dirty is because I had "battle damaged" Prime before I ended up taking him apart.

    I know Roller is a part of Prime, but being made from Prime? Killer. That classics Op never looked better.

    I dont know if it is the camera or the last wheel but it looks like the figure is tilting a little. It is cool custom especially with the new front end and the genious idea of the optimus legs as roller but if I may, try useing a bigger wheel on the back unless it is the camera then it is a really cool little figure.

    This looks great, but my question is, did Roller even ever have anykind of weapon at all in the show?

    I know everyone loves to up arm him, but I didn't remember.

    the rear wheels are just above touching the ground since they're glued in place and do not roll. kind of like the wheels on universe tankor/octane that are attached to his arms. That and the angle of the camera might make roller look like it's doing a little wheelie (not the character wheelie but the action of raising.. bah! you guys know what a wheelie is!)

    I don't remember him having a gun in the cartoon either but the original toy had that hose thingy mounted on the rear which was black and resembled a gun.

    Thanks for the comments guys!
