Motto: "FOR THE EARTH!!!"
Weapon: Saber Blade
The latter is likely related to the Orlando version of Transformers: The Ride.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Other guys are rather generic names.

EDIT:

Hmm, Armorhide and Rollbar were recolors of two of the Combaticons; can't help but wonder if yet another Bruticus repaint is in the works. If that's the case I really hope we get better names than "Movor" and "Ro-tor" for the other Commandos.



What, you don't think Ro-tor is an awesome name? You don;'t hear kids crying that Movor wasn't in the live action movies? :lol:
In seriousness, those two and this Armorhide/Tow-Line/Grindor-type name scheme blows.

The Side_Swipe thing though has me hoping MP LAmbor gets the ol' domestic release.

So they own the rights to the name Transformers as a "brand" but they cant apply it to a "ride" without a new application ??? And people wonder why I say the whole trademark and copyright system is a load of crap.

One needs only study the history of things like the "copyright" of the Happy Birthday song to see just how large the crapload is.
