Another Takara Tomy update? You bet! They've updated their Transformers website with a listing for Movie Advanced EX Rollbar. Rollbar is a redeco of Generations Skids, made to look like Shane's rally car from Age Of Extinction. The Chevy that Shane drove turned out to be a plain old car and not a Transformer in the film, but thanks to Hasbro and Takara, we're still getting a toy out of it anyway!

Rollbar will be available for purchase in Japan in November of this year, exclusive to Toys "R" Us. Here in the states, we'll receive Rollbar as part of a figure multipack based off of the Cemetary Wind farm attack sequence in Age Of Extinction. That set will feature "Rusty" Optimus as well. (You can read up on the Rusty Optimus here)

Wait, shouldn't all this Takara toy news be going into the Movie Advanced Series thread instead of this Hasbro AOE toy thread?

Thats an awesome idea. Where would we post it to ensure people see it ?

We're open to ideas, just try to be civil about it.

Yes, please. Also, it's a matter of cleanliness. Do you have any idea how many duplicate threads and posts we have to deal with? How much space/data they eat up on the server? It's not the worst thing ever, of course, but it's certainly not efficient and makes it harder on the staff.

We merge threads so everything is as tidy as possible. It's not to make things harder for the users, quite the opposite, in fact. We are always open to suggestions, so please post them and we'll do our best to figure out a system that works for everyone.

I understand that bbts needs to make theyre money because they are going to get stuck with alot of grimlocks and primes when that wave comes out. But thats not my problem. Im confident ill find slog in Walmart by the end of August.

On a separate note, I would love to see "thread merging" abolished. Its so freaking annoying to see conversations about 10 different topics mixed together just because they are loosly related to Michael Bay.


Been saying that for the past several years. I can understand it for conventiony things, where there's a lot of news coming out of one thing, (and even then, it's extremely annoying) but when it's news topics days and weeks apart, no.

The thing that kills it for me isn't the forums neccesarily, it's the way the news page processes. 9 times out of 10, I'm commenting on a news article with the "click here to join the discussion", I'm not already in the forums themselves. So when the news article itself has three seperate news posts for other things, such as AOE FE Knight Prime's post in the article for Sludge, it's more than a little jarring...

I wish there was a happy medium but there isnt. I was reading the "rollbar" article and most of the comments are about thread merging, not rollbar. I dont know anything about servers, all I know is its annoying and discourages me from posting on front paged news articles. I like to follow up on my comments and cant do so when theres 3 pages of comments every few hours that dont pertain to the topic I posted on.

If I didn't already have the original Skids version, I would probably be into this. I dig the alt-mode's paint job.

Regarding Rusty Prime and Rollbar, I wonder which idea came first: Hasbro's Breakout Battle set which includes an extra Crankcase, or TakaraTomy's single release. :-?

I'm also pondering repurposing possibilities for Rollbar, being a Generations mold and all.

Hey guys. I hear that there is a Transformers: Age Of Extinction dinobot 5-pack coming. I saw the word limited in one of the posts. Does this mean that Hasbro is going to be making a limited number of sets and they will be hard to find?

Something like that is in the plans, yes, but further details like deco and availability are still pending.

Anyone know what the 5-pack platinum dinobots look like yet? I already got 3 out of the 6 but I'm willing to buy the molds again if the paint apps are good enough. :???:

The Dinobot 5 pack is really odd to me. I was guessing it be similar to the one at SDCC but this pack is missing Snarl for some reason. If it was the G1 colours or a simple reissue of the SDCC pack, then why would it not contain Snarl? Also, though none of us may care for it, this means there is no chance Slash will have a redeco.

You are right about Slash. Besides the toy, he has no comic/cartoon/movie char anywhere. Just who is this crappy huge velociraptor mold? :HEADHURTS:

According to the silhouette, it will have Grimlock, Slug, Scorn, [strike]Swoop[/strike]Strafe and Slog, all the Dinos that appeared in the movie plus Slog. I don't think it will be G1-themed set.

So then this would be an independent set from what was hinted at from Hasbro:

[quote]G1 Dinobots set with Strafe, Grimlock, Slug, and Snarl (where's Sludge/Slog? Hasbro said they are working on it for a separate release) [/quote]

Is there a problem with snarl redeco? why is it hard for him to be included in either sets?

That latter set would be the SDCC one.

I know but this is not what I meant. There being Slog in this set of 5, I first thought that this would be where we see Slog in the new deco they said they were working on. But that cant be the case because this set of 5 is missing Snarl who already has the right deco. In the end, this is a weird set and I have no clue what the decos would be. So far, every platinum set has had different decos so then if this is not using G1 decos, and not using the already existing decos, then I have no clue what it is or its purpose.

I don't see what any of the confusion is a about. One is an SDCC G1-themed 4-pack set with all of the G1-based Dinos minus Slog/Sludge. The other is a Platinum Edition 5-pack with all four of the movie Dinos plus Slog. Is it too hard to consider that the inclusion of Slog in the movie dino set might be Hasbro's attempt to give fans the G1-based Slog toy that was missing from the SDCC set? The other four in the 5-pack could be in movie-accurate decos with Slog being the unique standout.
