One of the first

I know this isn't the first 3rd party complete figure, but this was one of the first that really showed the innovations to come, like the weapons storage and various configurations, at a time when pretty much only add-ons were being designed. It's crazy to think about how massive the 3rd party industry has gotten since then.

It is amazing that the third party scene has become the beast it is today. And it really says something, probably positive, about Transformers and the fandom in general, that this phenomena really only exists within Transformers. We're way past five years at this point, but no other franchise has this particular "issue".

This is EXACTLY how Rollar would look if he appeared in any of the live-action movies. The whole design is very Michael Bay-ish. Love all of the weapons though.

Good Point

I never really thought about it, but yeah, you're probably right. He does have a Bay-verse vibe big time, but thankfully not in a bad way. I guess I never thought of it because while he is an *cough* Autobot *cough*, he doesn't transform into a real licensed vehicle.
