    Well.

    That's a strange comic.

    Not really sure what's happening besides the replacing of words like 'Matrix of Leadership' with 'Artifact of Wisdom'. :lol 

    No but in all seriousness, Protector's back story looks like it's going to be pretty good. Makin' me all psyched for the toy, and what-not.

    We had confirmation when the TFSource/FansProject rep told Vangelus at BotCon.

    And previously, we had speculated it, because as seen in the proto pictures, the wheel segment of the base component of the trailer uses the same wheels as the G3 Roller, and looks to be detachable.

    Oh wow - that DOES look exactly like the "roller" they showed in the comic.

    But then, how does the gun emplacement stand without it? Seems like it'd be a little precarious...

    Well that clearly answers my question! :) 

    Awesome.

    I saw the kit in person at Botcon and didn't get any kind of hint that this was part of it.

    I'm wondering if "Guardian" will be Alpha Trion.

    So what do we call the new Roller? Hot Roll? Rollerimus Prime? Kevin? What?

    Rollar comes with Target Master's alt-mode at the end. :p 
    Or better yet the previous leader's conscious now in a new but smaller body is now riding rollar and joins the battle. :D

    I thought the comic would be something along the lines of "We were going to make this great toy to turn Rodimus into Rodimus Prime.... then Hasbro came and fucked us over."

    hmmm the lines are nice but I think the dark colours and the texture drown out a lot of what's going on

    So even in this continuity Rodimus isn’t ready to accept the burden of leadership?

    Other than that: SUPER EXCITE!

    I like what looks like a no Smoking Sign on the last panel of Page 6.

    While this does look awesome, and I will buy it, I'm going to predict the future of releases here:

    1. Regular release
    2. With new head and sword colored like Motormaster/Menasor for Henkei Wildrider
    3. Shattered Glass with chrome and new weapon as convention exclusive
    4. Shattered Glass without chrome and with new weapon
    5. Re-release of regular version with all heads and weapons

    How's that sound?
