Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Roller Concept Art

Weapon: Gattling Gun
Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne has shared an exclusive concept design for "Shadowplay" Roller by way of UK fansite Full Metal Hero. Looks like Roller has been hitting the gym! Be sure to pick up Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #10 tomorrow. Click here for a preview and here for our full review.

Since this book will be out tomorrow, and the preview is already up online I thought I would just share this design of Roller with you.
it was a lot of fun to come up with his look for issue 10 of MTMTE. When going over what he should look like with James, he mentioned he wanted him to transform into a prisoner transport. With that in mind I started to really think about how big he should be. Finally I decided that he needed to be bigger then Orion Pax. He has a few similar design aspect as pax has. I wanted that since they are a team/partners at the police station.
Well, I must get back to MTMTE, enjoy

I prefer the DJD in terms of design. Roller seems to take a lot from Dreamwave's WWI Prime's vehicle design.

I would buy this kind of Roller as a toy on the spot. Another great character concept.

I'm not really that impressed by it. I mean it looks like most of his other.background characters. While I've been very happy about the series, this is anotheret down design. The vehicle design seems dialed in too. I do however like the scale compared to Pax.

It looks like a cross between WWI Optimus and Xovergen's grand patriot.

Nah. Doesn't do it for me. Doesn't even make sense. How would a bruiser like this guy allow himself to be turned into a tiny, semi-sentient lacky.

^ Part 3 of Shadowplay hasn't even come out yet, dudicus. I'm guessing that this Roller dies and the drone is named in his honor.
