Some additional "bonus" characters are included below. These characters are from the Transformers: Generations book published in Japan.

Transformers Universe Autobot

ROLLBAR

Allegiance: AUTOBOT

Sub-Group: THROTTLEBOT

Function: TRACKER

First Comic Appearance: TRANSFORMERS #30

"When the going gets tough, the tough get driving."

Profile: Many mistake Rollbar's impulsive bravado for foolishness. But the truth is he's just a rough-and-tumble kind of guy who thrives on taking chances and putting his life on the line. He enjoys competition in any form- from watching a football game on television to being an active participant in an all-out war. He has a penchant for spouting somewhat cornball, macho cliches, particularly in the heat of battle, such as, "Let's show 'em what we're manufactured of, Autobots," or, "When the going gets tough, the tough get driving." More often than not, Rollbar's pronouncements elicit laughter, not greater bravery, from his comrades. But he doesn't seem to be bothered by their reactions one bit. He either doesn't hear them or chooses to ignore them. He just plunges on, allowing no deadly danger or looming obstacle to deter him from completing his appointed task.

Abilities: In jeep mode, Rollbar has tremendous agility. When necessary, he'll launch himself into a series of flips and rolls with hardly any loss of speed. He can traverse most terrains, no matter how treacherous. Built-in chemical sensors, radiation detectors, and an array of aural and visual recording devices make him an ideal tracker.

Weaknesses: In jeep mode, Rollbar has a less than average sense of balance. His design makes him prone to flipping over, particularly on sharp, fast turns. His agility usually, but not always, spares him any serious injuries.
