    It will make a cool figure....but I'm not excited about seeing him in the movie. The more Autobots they have, the less screen time each one will get. They're adding too many. I'm sure a few will be like Jolt or Sideswipe in ROTF, and that's nothing to get excited over, moviewise for me.

    We need more Decepticons than we do Autobots.

    Maybe some of these guys are reinforcements for the end battle, the cons do it so can't the bots.

    Rollbar, Cool! I'm guessing a homage to Alternators Rollbar which is the one version of the Alternator jeep i don't have. T_T

    I'm so buying a Rollbar toy.

    Great, they finally put my favorite vehicle in the movie, but they make it look like a complete joke. What a horrible looking POS...

    Funny, it reminds me of a dedicated spare tire holder....since that's what it is.

    And so continues the trend of Autobots picking the most ludicrous, showy, in-your-face-hey-look-at-me vehicle modes.

    Robots in disguise my ass.

    I'm pretty dang sure the reason we haven't seen too many Cons yet is because they generally need CG altmodes.

    I'm glad this is Rollbar and not green and called Hound. I can imagine the outcry because of him not being exactly like the G1 version with the big monster truck wheels and other mods. I can kind of see why they go for some of the slightly more obscure characters in the movieverse; it seems more accepted by the fandom to treat them as mere homages or namesakes while other characters are almost seen as too sacred to mess with. Not that that's stopped Michael Bay.

    Hmmm I'm not sure that having the same names as other Transformers that happened to belong to the same subgroup in a different continuity in the past means that these characters belong to a subgroup now. Movieverse Brawl and Swindle have little enough in common to make them into their own subfaction, and their are plenty of deception cars in the movieverse without needing to make Deadend and Wildrider a special team.

    I get the impression subfactions aren't a big part of the movieverse, at least not within the movies themselves; even the constructicons weren't specifically refered to, they just all happened to have construction vehicle alt modes and some combined into Devastator (or Devastator was made up of constrction vehicles depending on how you look at it).

    That said, Chase wouldn't be a bad name for the Ferrari regardless of whether it puts him into a sub group or not :)

    I'm thinking that one behind it is probably just a NEST vehicle.
    But maybe they'll make it into a transformer for the toy line, similar to what they did with Landmine.

    I think anyone who is actually expecting the third one to be any different are kidding themselves. The most we can hope for is that it at least wont be quite as bad as the last one. But we're not going to get any kind of deep story telling here folks. It's going to be a big loud, crazy ass popcorn flick, same as the last two.
    And just like the last two, the Decepti-fans are not going to be happy with it either. But then how happy can you really be in general when you're rooting for the bad guys?

    QFT. Some garrish graphics on microcars is fine...it's amusing and i see that kinda stuff all the time. People buy inexpensive cars and then make them unique...i get that. It's cool.

    Installing a lift THAT big and tires THAT big turns that wrangler, one of the coolest old school vehicles on the road, into a trailer-queen and eliminates the entire purpose of the truck. Any self-respecting off road enthusiast would laugh at something like that. It's completely non-functional. You dont need to go nearly that far to achieve amazing off-road results. A 2 inch lift and a swap to some of the newest gen dana axles, along with slightly larger dedicated off-road tires is all the wrangler needs to be unstoppable. Hell, the Rubicon factory offering is already nearly unstoppable. I wish they would have left it looking stock. It's bad-ass as is. I'm extremely disappointed in this choice, as it hits kinda close to home since the wrangler is kind of my dream vehicle.
