TF08.net’s Yizhi521 has posted many new images of Rollbar from the upcoming movie’s toy line, in-package. Here we have a good look at the packaging, his bio, and confirmation that his name will indeed be “Rollbar” and that he’s in the scout class price point. Click here to view all of the images.

You may also read his bio below:

ROLLBAR is happiest when he‘s following orders. He is uncomfortable with improvisation, and terrified of being put into a leadership position. Despite that, he is a highly skilled navigator, and has a keen mind for tactics, making him an invaluable asset to his commanders. He is extremely strong and tough, and though he prefers not to fight, he can be a challenge to DECEPTICONS many times his size.

WOW.

Is anyone else getting a strong "Orion Pax/Optronix" vibe from this guy's bio and design? The face and chest are quite prime-like, and his bio information reminds me strongly of the War Within incarnation of the Autobot leader. Brave and selfless, but resistant to accept command positions (which he would doubtlessly excell at)...

Lol, he's not even transformed correctly in package. :P

I wonder when these are meant to start turning up on shelves, the in package shots seem early considering the movie's not out til July (or was it June, I forget).

He is a pretty nice figure, better than he seems in pictures. I think of him as my Red Bull truck :grin: I got all four the day after Christmas, nice figures for scouts. :P

I work for UPS, that would be pimp to see it repainted as one of our "package cars"

Now if not for the fact that Prime was already Prime when he got to earth, this figure would definitely scream "I Become Optimus Prime!" to me... but as that is the case, having a robot so distinctly Optimus looking that becomes a red bull truck makes no sense... but it does look cool.

I'm glad he's in rbot moe, so you don't get fooled by the image on the back which is photoshopped cleaned. You can see what it REALLY looks like.

They should of added at least one autobot logo like on one of the blue chest plates or on one of the shoulders or something

Looks like a bit of a shellformer, but a nicely done one at that. There's no bulky back kibble that they tend to suffer from.

I'm sure we'll see a lot of delivery truck repaints though, yes...
