    I'm inclined to believe him... Are there any pics with this vehicle actually onset or with any other Autobots? That one trailer shot of it being pulled could have just been in the area of the filming, the rest of the stuff has been: an 8 second video of what could have been any parking lot, and a picture of some idiot on the back of him with a mini gun IN SOME SORT OF COMMUNITY.

    Yeah I'm starting to believe him, until I see pics of it with other Autobots.

    Yeah, he could be legit. I don't recall any pics or videos of Rollbar in action in the actual shoot. And the fact that it has the regular Autobot symbol rather than the movie version.

    It does seem strange that they'd be able to haul that thing into the middle of downtown Chicago with so many streets closed for filming. I wouldn't have thought you'd be allowed to get something that big so close to the production. It would get in the way. Maybe the crew saw the Autobot symbol and didn't realise it wasn't supposed to be there.

    I also would've thought that if they actually acquired this vehicle for TF3, they would've got the guy to take down his images of Rollbar with the strippers and the pole dancing.

    Cool Jeep. But if it's not Transformers then I could seriously give a shit.

    I really hope this jeep is in TF3....and we get a toy of it....if it isn't, even though its cool looking, I too could care less about about it.

    I would venture to say that they used it in the tunnel shoot the night before and it was headed out, who knows. I guess we will find out when we see the movie. Nobody official has denounced it either so, I'm guessing we will see it again.

    If it's not in the film, Hasbro should do a repaint of the ROTF deluxe Wheelie mold in this deco and release as a monster truck character. They said they often look at some of the photos leaked during the production to get ideas for toys.

    It would amuse me.

    Wheelie's big brother. :D 

    To bad he is not green like original Rollbar, but that would maybe mistake him to much for Hound. The Alternator was is red though and is a Jeep Wrangler (although not a monster truck Wrangler).

    I am still hoping for Prowl (as a police car to go head to head with Barricade) and Hound (either as a Humvee or a green Jeep Wrangler like the Alternator).

    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. That's all.

    Yup, but will anyone actually listen?

    We still have people calling the Ferrari "Rush" and the Mercedes "Q" despite us being told they're not.

    Well having spoken to the customizer of the vehicle personally, Tommy Bostic assured me it was in the movie. Now to be fair, I've only spoken with him a couple of times but I don't see why he'd lie about it. That being said, I'm curious as to why the vehicle was let on set in the first place if it wasn't part of production. A counter to that though is the fact I have yet to see the Jeep being filmed in any scenes. I'm honestly torn on what to believe here.

    Any publicity is good publicity.

    I'm gonna believe Nelson here, though.

    I tend to believe Nelson also. And you make a very valid point. I had no idea what TOMMYBUILT was until this and I'm sure a great number of people are aware of it now. He stated to me that he was getting hundreds of emails asking about this Jeep being in the film. That kind of proves your point.

    I hate to say it, but for some reason, I don't believe this. I kinda believe that this Jeep is indeed going to be in TF3, otherwise why put it onto a trailer, and roll it out for filming?

    That's the part that gets me. If it's not part of the film, why was it allowed on set?

    To be honest, this whole thing is whatevs to me, but I will note this -

    If the TommyBuilt dude does regular jeep customization, getting ahold of a semi trailer may not be that difficult. Parading it through Chicago at some random point in time that just happens to correspond with the filming dates maaaay have been just good publicity for him.

    ...or, on the other hand, maybe the jeep is in the film and Nelson is playing the role of the Iraqi Information minister. Who knows.
