We can't call this a big spoiler after revealing Shockwave... So, here's Autobot Rollbar; the newest Autobot to join the 3rd Transformers Movie.

Throughout the past few days there had been numerous reports of a mysterious new Red Giant Jeep at the Transformers 3 set. TFW2005 Member EShadowP managed to confirm who exactly this new bigboy is.

But, this isn't the first time Rollbar appeared in the movie franchise. Head-on over to our Resources Section to see how he was portrayed before the third movie : Rollbar (Combat Series).

Those who know G1, will immediately recognize him as Throttlebot Rollbar from that continuity. If you guessed it correctly, then you can celebrate by hitting the Discuss Button.

Checkout more images by clicking on the Title Bar.

"When the going gets tough, the tough get driving."


UPDATE:
The "T B" logo on the back of the vehicle stands for Tommy Built. Initially this jeep was built not for the movie, but YouTube videos (now taken down by Paramount) prove that the "turret" behind the vehicle is fitted with a Machine Gun and a N.E.S.T gunman will wield the weapon (Click here for the image). Thanks should go to cypherXR of 2005 Boards for providing us with these information.

I really want to know how their going to transform the wheels, or where they'll go, because its seems like at least half its mass is there.
mineraljane
Is that a Maryland license plate?

I definitely hope that they've moved away from the wheels-for-feet approach.
Toxicon
Oh dear gawd. I can't wait to see the bot that thing turns into.

AWAITING TOYS

Yep, Maryland license plate.

*Waits for renewed interest in Alternators Rollbar, commences cursing self for not picking up more when they were shelfwarming on clearance*
Ravage_Eject
Rollbar looks great! Glad to see he has a name : )
frenzyrumble

Bad-ASS

Love those rims.
Biotoakid

Erector

mariobros27772

mariobros27772

Powersa
Rollbar, really? Maybe Rollbar will get popular this time.
garibaldiprime
Awesome!

Certainly is.
NeilD83
interesting, wonder where those big ass wheels will go? and please, no more wheel feet
Anguirus
Looks great and all, but I'm getting the sickening feeling that, as in RotF, there are just too goddamn many robots here!

I hope more Autobots get more than one line apiece. Except the Twins, feel free to use those as cannon fodder!
Sideswipe1954
Rebuilt and renamed Wheelie, maybe? Like how Bumblebee got rebuilt into Goldbug?
Thundershot
Wow! A nod to Alternators Rollbar! That little Throttlebot made it to the big screen!
eagc7
Rollbar made it to the film!!!
Lazerwave
Ok, So we've got:

Silverbolt
Rollbar
Unnamed Ferrari
Unnamed Purplish Blue car
and
An Ugly Old Professor robot

As the new autobots in the new movie.

Is there any chance we can hear a spoiler of a name ryhming with WHEELJACK in the third movie?
TRANS+CRAZY
*Screams for joy*

YES!!! My wish of seeing a Jeep Transformer has been granted!

THANK YOU, MICHAEL BAY!!!
MenasorMaster
WTF ??? another autobot ?? That sucks.
Ops_was_a_truck
Kick ASS.

I notice that too. Interesting touch. ^^
Thanks for the photos, guys!
Mechafire
Sweet. Can't wait to see the bot mode.
Optimus Clyde
He looks badass, but dammit! No Hound?! I hope he makes it in anyway. And I thought Bay hated to shoot red. Wasn't that his excuse for a blue Prime?
Santoanderson
Thank Effing God non-GM autobots are starting to overrun the Chevy-bots. Plus I'm super happy because I have a thing for red jeeps. Here's my baby:



PS, Does anyone know what that metal arm coming off the back is supposed to be? I originally thought it was a camera arm, but these new photos seem to dismiss that theory.

Here's Alternator Roll Bar:

Didn't Bay's website name the Ferrari in a photo caption as "Rush"?

EDIT: Ah. Looks like I'm behind on the news. Went back and looked and they changed the caption. Says it was taken on "Rush St."

Nelson had a pic of the Ferrari captioned "Rush" but later changed it to "Ferrari parked on Rush street."
seeker311
we have those same kind of emblems on our cars; Will this rollbar have the same kind of relationship with Prime as G1 Rollbar?

Trailbreaker's name is written as a one word. TB for a Jeep stands for Throttle Body.

Trail Breaker would be a far better name then corny ass Rollbar considering he looks like one of those crawler vehicles ..but it says rollbar on his hood so I donno either

Exactly... I waited to see if anyone would catch it after I posted it on the front page (I even gave it away as Throttle Body to see who will notice it). Hats-off and Respect to you, sir!
Dave_6
I'm really anxious to see how the 'bot mode is going to look.
Liege Prime
Phew, finally after hearing excuse after excuse about not being able to fit the throttlebots into a live action film, they give in to fan demand. Now if only BB gets his ass handed to him and has to be refitted with gold parts.
guard convoy
totally called it
Squallte
I just hope it gets a Swindle re-paint! Hopefully he has a arm cannon too.
Bad Ass Megs
I don't know how much I believe this one. I have the Decepticon version of that Autobot logo on the tailgate of my truck. Bought it and a deluxe figure in Beijing for $12 Canadian. Seems a cheap add on compared to the other vehicles they have used logos on ie: Ratchet, Optimus, Ironhide. Also, nobody else has their name on their vehicle form (except the twins license plates)

Maybe part of the mis-information campaign.
plowking
YES!!

Thank you Mr. Bay!!

Hasbro, please make this toy as cool as possible....PLEASE!!

and preferably a Human Alliance version too

*gets black paint ready*

Angelwave
The tires should become muscles and boxing gloves....would instantly be the best bot of the movie.
