    Every American-released Transmetal beat him but about 13-14 years.

    Or, since Autobots are public knowledge, it's not a disguise at all?

    And really, anything that's not a giant robot or covered in robot bits is a good-enough disguise.

    Was hoping it's be Hound, but I can ignore it as long as we get a green repaint AND an HA.

    You're not the only one to get that wrong is this thread, but I'll point it out to you cos you're the most recent...

    This is Rollbar the Jeep Throttle-Bot, not Roller the little blue drone that lives in Primes trailer.

    Yeah actually, I want a Transformer that talks slang, one that has a german accent and one that a straight country bumpkin. Why? Because that's the diversity that makes things interesting. You just have to pick the right actor to do it. I'd love to hear like a Transformer voice aping Denzel Washington from Training Day, or maybe Ice Cube or Xzibit, a bot voiced by Jude Law, or even someone voiced by Seth Rogen. These bots come to earth, learn our language off the net, you think some of them aren't going to choose weird or eccentric styles of speech? I didn't like everything they did with the twins, but they were nice for the diversity they added.

    My co-worker mentioned the name to me on the weekend, and I had also thought he said they saw 'Roller' on set.

    Check out the mtx logo on the front. Did mtx made this for TF3?

    YES! I was hoping this guy was going to be an Autobot, and "Rollbar" fits him perfectly! In my opinion, this is a successful naming of a robot for TF3.
    What's really interesting is his alternate mode. With such a crazy-looking Jeep, I really hope he has a great robot mode to go along with it.

    Looks like Wheelie got a paintjob and started hitting the juice.

    What the hell is with all these non-GM Autobots??? Also roll bar just looks ugly AND he has a non-movie styled Autobot emblem.

    GM started running out of models. They lost Pontiac, Hummer, Saturn, and Saab thanks to their government bailout. Plus, from the audience's perspective, when every autobot has a chevy bowtie, it starts to feel less like a movie, and more like a car commercial.

    Besides I like Rollbar's design. It'll be nice to have a change of pace from the super-sleek, sports-car look.

    This makes no sense. He went from a milk truck to a army vehicle to a small little jeep. Movie verse is so f**ked up.

    Has autobot logo screams decepticon with all the pointy edges, I wonder if those rims shoot out like in Ben Hurr or if they are his hands when he transforms.

    Man that will be a neat toy, I wonder if this is Wheelie rebuilt.

    And Jold was originally a Decepticon repaint of Crosswise. Best not to take the actual toy line as canon.
