    The title of this thread is confusing.

    The verb is "transform", not "transformer". Optimus Prime's famous catchphrase was not "Autobots, Transformer and roll out!", after all...

    I like it, but it looks more like it should be for Movie Prime, not 20th Prime/MP Convoy.

    Sweet... it's about friggin' TIME!

    Though I agree with the earlier comment that he seems a little too "movie" styled... or rather, he just seems to be too lean and mean.

    Normally I'm all about the wicked anime-styled mechs, but for Roller, I think something simpler and cuter was called for. Roller has always been more Wall-E or R2D2 than he was a sleek combat machine.

    This robot looks cool in his own right based on the concept art, but it doesn't get points for channeling the character (who admittedly, never really had much of a character associated with him).

    However, although it's hard to tell from the artwork, it would be sort of cool if he ends up looking a bit like Prime... since according to the fiction, he IS an extension of Prime's consciousness.

    Man, you are in my head, that is EXACTLY what I was thinking. Right down to the WALL-E and R2D2 comparisons. This design looks too "badass" for Roller. He should be straight-up cute.

    Interesting thought, about him looking a little like Prime. I'd be up for a cute, simply little red-and-blue robot with some Prime-esque design cues. He might be a good candidate for a Videogame-Drone-style lens-face, too. It would keep him from having too much of his own identity and make him seem more like an "eyes-of-Prime" scout.

    Crap. Now I want to do a Roller custom.

    I feel good about this and will probably buy it, if I'm pleased with the production quality of my "City Commander" armor.

    if he's going to be that busy in robot mode, then he has no business standing with MP-01, which is a shame as it WOULD be cool to have a viable modernized Roller to go with that sucker.

    Looks really cool, but I have a hard time caring; it'll cost way more than I'd want to spend on it, and there's just way too many other things I want to buy.
