Once again from infamous eBay seller lena81822, we have another in-hand image first: Rollbar from the upcoming Age of Extinction "Breakout Battle" exclusive set! Rollbar, a redeco of Generations Skids, is based on Shane Dyson's Chevrolet Sonic rally car that appeared in the recently launched Transformers: Age of Extinction film, and will be included in a three pack with a screen-accurate Evasion Mode Optimus Prime and a seemingly Generation One-inspired redeco of Crankcase. Check out the images below!

Looks good but that mold isn't worth a third dip

I like the colors but the lack of detail in the white just makes him a little bland

I agree with the bland comment, the "wings" look unfinished and the chest is just a block of solid colour, nothing exciting there - I wonder how it would look with the shoulder "missiles" deployed?

What is this set exclusive to again? TRU? WalMart?

I agree it's a bit bland, but since I actually don't have any of the three molds yet, I'll gladly pick this up, even if screen accuracy does indeed make Skid-bar look pretty bland. Dry-erase marker, anyone?

Or maybe a future set will have this guy battle-damaged, and come with a [spoiler]charred human corpse, frozen in mid-stride[/spoiler]? I still can't believe that made the final cut. I mean, I'm happy about it, but still...

Anywhere Platinum Editions are sold I think, as Breakout Battle is one such set.

If it's Platinum Edition, it's Toys "R" Us. I don't think they've ever been sold anywhere besides Toys "R" Us and/or Big Bad Toy Store.

they would have been stupid to cut that. An actual emotional scene in a Bay movie. Rare gem that.

What are you talking about? The previous three films were ripe with scenes conveying the emotions of depression, misery, horror, and disgust. :P

Probably depends on if they're painted.

If I get this, it'll probably be to repurpose it as Skid-Z. Yeah, it's a bit of a stretch, but it's not like Hasbro's remaking bit players from RiD left and right.

The rarest element of the scene was a Bay-movie explosion that left a graphic consequence in its aftermath, rather than blurring into the purely decorative white-noise that Baysplosions typically amount to.

I...kiiinda like it, but I already have Skids, and I don't like owning too many multiples of the exact same mold if it's not the Seekers.

I mean, sure the hood is pretty bland, but I have to give props to whoever painted the rear end. It's pretty good. And Reprolabels will probably make a nice set for this guy somewhere along the road.

It looks like a KO or something. Pass

Of course. The films' scenes conveyed those emotions to the audience. ;)

Was anyone let down when Drift turned into a Bugatti instead of a Mitsubishi evo ?

Not when we both knew what he would turn into ahead of time and saw that his torso was recognizably a Bugatti Veyron's front end.

Retailer? Price? Release date?

Definitely like this. Only gripe is they could have gave a new head sculpt but then it probably would have been movie like making me like this less. If it's not too expensive I'll probably give it a shot unless the figure with it is utter crap.
