Seibertron.com member "Deadpool's Lame Joke" has notified us that tfw2005 user "EShadowP" has posted new images of the previously mentioned red Jeep we reported earlier.

These images reveal some interesting facts.
The Jeep has the Autobot faction symbol as you can see here:

Image

But that's not all, it also has a word written on the sides of it's hood, a word that also happens to be a Transformers name:

Image

Yes it reads "Rollbar", now this might be the character's name or it might just be an Easter egg, so take this with a grain of salt since it will take some time before we know for certain what role 'Rollbar' has in the new film.

There are some more images available if you want to see them just click here to see more Jeep details, and weaponry.

Stay tuned to seibertron.com for all your Transformers related news!

I am glad it is Rollbar. However, I am in disbelief that people wouldn't guess this would be Rollbar on the first thread about this. I kind of thought it was obvious. Oh well, whatever.

It's Wheelie's Dad! I imagine they'll look pretty similar in robot mode and with those big wheels, he'll probably be a Wheel-bot

I guess the Throttle Bots need some love too!


.

Yeah, I thought Bay said he wouldn't film anything red because it doesn't film well...and that's why Prime is mostly blue and we got no red Ironhide or Sideswipe. But now we haz this and a red Ferrari? I mean, not that I can complain about that because I love it all the same, but still! Lol


Is the red Ferrari Sideswipe now ?

Actually, in one of the photos there is a human riding on the back pointing a fairly imposing looking gatling gun.

Chances are this is another in the set to go with the human weaponized Nascars.

No, cuz Sideswipe is already in the movie.

Maybe Rollbar is the Jeeps' Boyfriends' name and it got a tattoo of it?

Another Autobot huh? The Decepticon forces seem greatly outnumbered.

I bet it will be a large and important role like Sideswipe or maybe Jolt from the last movie :roll: :roll: :roll:

I swear they pick the most random and obscure bots for these movies.

More obscure bots /sigh.

Jolt looks nice in both modes but why not make it an original 84 bot?
Rollbar? Make him yellow, Decepticon and call him Swindle? More logic to that.
Red Ferrari is rumored to be Swerve or Windcharger? Not sure, but why not add flames to the hood and name him Hot Rod.

I don't get it. I much rather see characters that i know than these.

Give me Wheeljack, Hot Rod etc.

I agree, but really based solely on names like 'Jolt' and 'Grindor', placeholder names from the A/E/C stable, and things like 'Sideways' which isn't much of a name at all.
That being said, I may be the only one on this, but I'm gladder (?) to see a jeep named Rollbar and not have it automatically be Swindle. I'm just saying.

No, because the Decepticons are naturally comprised of nameless, generic protofoms, if you recall. But don't worry too much, because

No way! There were,like,20 Decepticons in the RotF final battle and this is THE final battle! This time (theoretically) Megs pegs everything he's got at the Autobots all open ended Decepticon appearances (Barricade) rock up as well! Shockwave may potentially bring along a goon squad of his own,too. Plus whatever minibots Soundwave has left to regurgitate. Remember this is all final battle business at the moment with little knowledge on pre-ending filming shenanigans so very many bots are potentially invisible to us for now as they will all end up as CGI in this fight and not use vehicle modes at all.
Every new Autobot arrival is a celebration!!! :BOT: :APPLAUSE: :CON: :BOOM:

I am strictly speaking confirmed appearances here. We have like 13, possibly 14 depending on the Einstein bot, Autobots. Decepticon wise, we have Megatron, Shockwave, and Soundwave. I mean, I'm 99% sure Starscream will be in the movie but we haven't even seen his kabob yet. If this is the rumored final battle, I was expecting to see more Decepticons racing around too.

Yes I remember. But, hopefully that has been resolved in the third installment.

Kup has already been ruled out according to official movie sources.
