Transformers Fans can cross-out Rollbar from the list of Autobots of Transformers 3 because Nelson; Administrator of MichaelBay.Com, said…

“I've just received official re-confirmation that the Jeep is not in the movie.”

This piece of story began when Nelson simultaneously commented at his site and at ours with..

"It's actually not Rollbar or a TF to being with. This Jeep has nothing to do with the TF3 production as of this moment.

A dedicated fan decided to try his luck at having his Jeep featured in TF3.
It was a publicity stunt on behalf of the owner in which "reportedly" some set people fell for. It never made it into the set. Have you seen images of it being take off the flatbed and getting prepped? No.

Have you notice that most of not all the videos have been mysteriously removed by the studio?”


cypherXR of 2005 Boards, further backed-up Nelson with “Interesting. I do find it a bit odd after speaking to the owner of the Jeep that after he told me "definitively" that it was going to be in the movie, he now says he can't comment on it at this time. Thanks for the clarification on the matter Nelson.”

All we have to say is… Rollbar, Don’t Transform but Roll-Out (Out of the movie, that is).

UPDATE: Following cypherXR's footsteps, many had contacted the owner of the "Rollbar" Jeep. Confirmations are coming in that it is indeed a Publicity Stunt to get the Jeep in the movie and measure Fan Reaction to it. We are saying a special "Thank You" to all of those who contributed to this article with various information by contacting us. Clearly, Rollbar's latest news is not a Misinformation, It seems.

So, Rollbar may not Transform & Roll-Out (as an Autobot) after all.

That's true. Being around the set isn't exactly in the set.

Looking at the video closely, it doesn't appear to be on any of the sets they've been filming on.

Lord forbid if they show a Fedex truck passing by the set, who's that going to be?

LMAO! Funny you should say that because Rollbar, which was supposedly the name of the red Jeep, was actually a delivery truck in the Revenge of the Fallen toy line.

true, just showing they took it off the flat bed trailer somewhere in Chicago, possibly, if it was even offloaded in Chicago in the first place.

...because the job of the production is to furnish you with accurate spoiler information.

That video showed nothing of the sort. It was just rolling around aimlessly in a parking lot somewhere.
OMEGAPRIME1983
WHAT?!?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.......... That's not FFFAIR!!! I was really REALLY liking that thing too I am really really sad.... I find it hard to believe that it isn't in the movie, it's gotta be, I mean common, the thing was filmed on a trailer rolling past the set by one of the transports for god's sakes!! I'm callin BS!!
jamjam101
i knew it. the car was too ugly to be any autobot.
Sso02V
Hey, thanks for breaking the page there, skipper.
Santoanderson
This is all just dumb now. Seriously. And the jeep was the coolest looking bot yet. Chalk up another tally for disappointment.

Just to clarify..

All we saw was a pic of the Jeep. You can't say it was the coolest looking bot without a bot mode

I get what you mean, thought
Cyber Star
damn, well thats too bad. I thought the rollbar jeep was gonna be the most badass lookin vehicle in the TF movies, oh well

Who said it was even on set? It could have been near it and people mistook it.

What robot mode are you taking about because we haven't seen any robots mode for TF3 yet...

Bot as in the abbreviated form of "Autobot." I was referring to the bot's alt mode.
DecepticonsRule
For some reason... I'm smelling bullshit on this. First of all, why wait so long to release a statement on this? Nelson has been pretty much posting teasers of TF3 whenever they pop up, so why wasn't this debunked long ago?
Second, we DID see photos of the Jeep on a trailer.
Third, the Jeep that arrived on set is not exactly the same as the Jeep that was posted on that dude's website. It's been modified slightly, and why would the guy go to the effort of putting "Rollbar" on it, if he was only attempting to get it into the movie? Notice how we haven't seen any photos of the new and improved Jeep on his website.

As of now, I'm taking anything Nelson says with a HUGE grain of salt. I'm not going to say he's lying, but I'm not necessarily going to believe anything he says either.

and yet a motorcycle was randomly spotted sitting on set just a couple of weeks ago & just yesterday, possibly, same said motorcycle was spotted being filmed in Chicago at the Old Post Office.

plus as usual we won't really know what vehicles that have been spotted on set in fan/public pics & fan/public filming of on set footage until the film is released to the general public next year.

beginning to ending of filming a film/movie anywhere in public with or without confirmation/disinformation for pics/vids showing up from the public on the internet WILL ALWAYS be fan speculation no matter what the people making the film/movie say in regards to such things until the release of the film/movie to the public & that will never change & will always be a constant from the Hollywood biz.

That's what bugs me. Everybody saw this thing two weeks ago, but why did it take so long to finally give the word that it's fake? It's one of two probable answers. 1) Nobody on the set knows what they're doing. Some think it's a movie car, others think it's a private car. The left hand doesn't know what the right is doing. 2) Nelson is teasing us, and enjoys watching us run around like chickens with our heads cut off... which feels sort of petty.

Either way I was totally pumped to see a big-ass Jeep transformer, and for the past two weeks I've been getting gradually more and more excited. Now that there suddenly won't be a Jeepformer, I'm a little disappointed, and not as excited to see the movie as I was before.

Oh, and for my retort to the snarky "Fedex truck" comment. I imagine every car down on the set, pedestrian or not, could seem like a Transformer to a pair of novice eyes. But this Jeep had all the markings, the nutzo Michael Bay-ish lack of realism, and nobody, including Nelson, to strike down the rumor, until today.
ThunderTalon
well lets just wait and see who will be in the movie i personally think the jeep is rollbar and the firetruck is inferno who cares what this nelson said hes trying to keep us from knowing who these vehicles are
Moy
Well that's good, I never liked the over-sized wheels on that car, it reminded too much of an overgrown Wheelie.
I hope that gray Hummer is an Autobot though.

exactly the way the Hollywood biz loves to mess with it's fan base/public base for certain films/film franchises & they will always keep doing it.

Because they're busy making a movie?

Nelson isn't.
MrRoy
I think it was being picked up in Chicago, and perhaps it is only in robot mode in the final battle.
Yubarules77
hahahahhaa you can see it was listed in wikipedia as rollbar hahahaha
Wollstone
You'd think fans would have learned by now to not take anything as fact until they see the movie.
TRANS+CRAZY
Wait, wha? There is no Jeep/Rollbar in TF3?

Fedex trucks don't have Autobot logos molded onto them. This jeep did. That tells us that it very likely a custom-made vehicle for the movie team.
Sso02V
Or they bought one of the cheap stick-on plastic Autobot symbols you can find anywhere car accessories are sold.

It's even a G1-style Autobrand.

Fedex trucks don't feature Autobot symbols and aren't usually customized with such detail.
Maybe you've seen some crazy-ass Fedex trucks like this, but I haven't.
Autobot_Wall-E
Well then why is there a picture of the truck being fitted with a chain fed machine gun? That is not normal (or legal I don't think...) I am thinking shenanigans.

By the way, who is the Nelson guy anyway and why is everyone looking to him for information? I haven't been around so if the explanation is old I just missed it. Sorry
major revolt
Now I now this movie is gonna suck worse.

Remember when the twins weren't in the movie?

Nelson presumably doesn't go around the internet trawling for any and all news like a fan or a website's scoop hound does. He might not have been aware of this until it was brought to his attention.

The chain gun was part of the Jeep customiser's own props. According to images on the net of this Jeep thing, it usually has a stripper pole attached there when it was brought out to car shows. As Nelson suggests, the fitting of the gun (presumably in Chicago as I have not seen the images you are referring to) was evidently part of the owner's publicity stunt.

Nelson is the webmaster of Michael Bay's website and has been on set. He has confirmed and denied various fan theories recently, and was also the first to reveal who Rosie Huntington-Whitely was playing.

what that cheap autobot symbol that you can buy off of ebay at a low low price..
I knew that jeep wasn't part of the movie because there was no video of that thing in action on the set..just a video of the owners hauling that thing home after drove all that way for nothing...and if you look no other movie vehicle has the name of the character they are supposed to be stickered on their hoods
