Who is the "Guardian" that is mentioned by Rodimus? Another FansProject product? Springer is Defender and Ultra Magnus is City Commander, right?

I love the idea of Roller moving from Prime's trailer to Rodimus' trailer. Brilliant!

Maybe Guardian is the name of Protector's trailer? Like G3 was the name of Prime's. Maybe it is referring to the upcoming Broadside-esque figure, or maybe it is a mis-translation of Defender?

Just stabs in the dark here :)

I know FP changed the names of things to keep from being chewed out/sued by HasTak, but there were so many in this thing all at once I couldn't help but laugh!

That and the onomatopoeia "EHRRP..." like the trailer belched :lol:

Omg, Protector whines just as much as Rodimus Prime did. Grow a damn backbone mate.

Well, at least he finally admits it was his fault Prime died. Other than that, pure epic. :lol:

Seems like "Protector" is reffering to Roller as "Guardian".

And "Protector" should be a whiney bee-yoch if he holds true to character. I like the brooding Rodimus Prime, personally. He has courage, but is filled with self doubt. I think many of us can relate to that.

Dude if I can get that Rodimus Roller with Protector, this set will surpass the City Commander and its Upgrades for me! Still no release date yet :-(
What's wrong Fansproject? Don't want our money yet? :lol:

HUGE EDIT:

The Guardian Roller thingy is already part of the Protector set! The rear of the battle station has the wheels and the shape and, upon farther inspection, looks detachable!

After Prime drops Megatron off the edge and collapses, the first thing Hot Rod does is rush over and ask Optimus to forgive him. He knew and admitted to what he did before Optimus even died! What holds him back as Rodimus is the lesson he learned: rushing in can get people killed. Every time he holds back, he's fighting his natural instinct to charge in which may get his friends (that now must follow his orders) killed.

Rodimus Prime is a much deeper character than we could realize when we were kids.

I believe at BotCon they said that the roller with Protector would be a targetmaster-correct?

I didn't know that. I wasn't there and didn't have the internet at the time. If it's old news, yay I'm caught up!

No, they said that it would FIT the targetmasters, I believe they used Nightstick as an example. Vange1us has a video talking to FP about Protector on his YouTube page, i'm pretty sure that's where I heard it.

Ah, I knew I heard something in that video-that must be it.

In Vange1us video on YouTube, the Fansproject rep said in our hands by Christmas.

And the Roller is clearly detachable in the video, you just had to be looking for it I guess. YAY I was right!

Wow, it's like they already have my money, but they just want to keep selling it to me, which is a good thing in this case.

So quick questions:

1: I'm guessing that Protector's gun will be able to be mounted on Guardian/Roller, in that case, can the barrel extension be mounted on Guardian/Roller separately from Rodimus' gun?

2: If so, is that where it is supposed to be mounted in Truck/Winnebago mode? On Guardian/Roller?

I may be wrong, but I don't think Guardian is the name of Protector's equivalent of Roller. Protector seems surprised that the scout unit is alive, and this comes after he mentions Guardian. Probably a reference to a later project. FansProject's Broadside hasn't actually been given a name yet. Might be him. But then again, Omega Supreme is traditionally referred to as a "guardian". We can but hope.
