I had Rollbar as a kid. I loved that figure!

Rollbar was my first Throttlebot, so I thought it was cool to see him acting as Throttlebot leader in Marvel #30 when I finally found it. I've found that some fans who didn't own any of the 6 as kids now consider them so awful they can't even look at them, so they're way past due for new toys with actual articulation and proportions.

Nice touch making his spare tire a gun; I used to pretend it was a little Gatling gun firing behind him in jeep mode. IIRC, he had a firepower of 1 to reflect his not having a gun, and none of the others had guns most of the time in the comics because Ratbat sent them to Earth unarmed, a nice reflection of the fact that you couldn't really even pretend they could wield weapons with their immobile arms.

Hmm, I don't see Wideload's silhouette. He was unique for a dump truck, so it'd be a shame not to take a crack at him. Scale issues though...

Here I thought I was the only one to notice Wideload's silhouette missing from the pic. Freeway was a blue Corvette and that looks like his silhouette in the middle while the white Searchlight and the red Chase could fit for both left and right silhouettes, leaving the bottom one to be the gold Goldbug, the Bumblebee upgrade.

Personally, I'd rather the orange and blue Wideload be made as opposed to the gold Goldbug. If Not-Rollbar's vehicle and robot forms are any indication, these figures are going to be very cool.

I also like the metallic paint used on Rollbar, giving him the illusion that he's made of metal as opposed to plastic.

If I was Wideload I'd be all over it. As is, I'd quite like the other Throttlebots, but not at the price these are likely to go for. Looks real nice though.

As a huge Rollbar fan, I will pick this up. My only misgiving is the head. I always loved the original head sculpt. It just seemed to ooze character but I'm not liking the linked eyes on this.

Still, I know I'll pick it up. Looks great otherwise.

I really like this idea, love the throttlebots and they've never had any re-releases that I can think of (except for Goldbug of course).

Hope they do make a Wideload as well. Gotta have the whole set.

Looks fantastic, not sure if i dig the wheelgun though. Rather have a pistol that's stored underneath the vehicle or inside the tire but hey....sculpt looks brilliant so just a minor complaint.

If they do release the others i'll skip Goldbug as i just got the Renderform Gold Scout kit and that will look fantastic when i put that on my United Bee.

Btw i agree with what others said, if they really want to do the others they should definately not skip Wideload.

Perhaps these figures will have the pull-back engine feature?

:lol:

Only if they're bricks, for G1 accuracy! :lol: ;)

But yeah, this guy looks great. Who's making it and possibly the others?

I am using a Classics Hound with a custom head as Rollbar right now. I'd love to have this guy. I have customs of all of the others as well using BB and Tracks/Wheeljack molds, and still waiting for my Maketoy Dump Truck to customize as Wide Load.

They NEED to make a Wideload. Him and Goldbug were the only Throttlebots I bought as a kid. I'll be sure to get them all this time around.

I absolutely love this figure. From the transformation, the detail, size, and to the shiny paint job. Wow, I am impreseed that they are able to make a cool looking figure out of a crappy Throttlebot. And has given me new respect for Rollbar.

Now that's what I'm talking about! Rollbar was the second Throttlebot I got as a youngster and he was my favorite as well. I don't know why. This figure looks brilliant. Beelzeboss had better do something amazing with their Throttlebots to best this design.

Only slight complaint is that those bumps on his chest/roof will make it difficult to place an Autobot insignia on there.

Looking at the silhouette, it appears Goldbug will be based on the new VW Beetle which is exactly how it should be.

I need some Decep cars but the price of these things is so off-putting. Love the design though.
