Transformers Fans can cross-out Rollbar from the list of Autobots of Transformers 3 because Nelson; Administrator of MichaelBay.Com, said…“I’ve just received official re-confirmation that the Jeep is not in the movie.”
This piece of story began when Nelson simultaneously commented at his site and at ours with..“It’s actually not Rollbar or a TF to being with. This Jeep has nothing to do with the TF3 production as of this moment.
A dedicated fan decided to try his luck at having his Jeep featured in TF3.
It was a publicity stunt on behalf of the owner in which “reportedly” some set people fell for. It never made it into the set. Have you seen images of it being take off the flatbed and getting prepped? No.
Have you notice that most of not all the videos have been mysteriously removed by the studio?”
cypherXR of 2005 Boards, further backed-up Nelson with “Interesting. I do find it a bit odd after speaking to the owner of the Jeep that after he told me “definitively” that it was going to be in the movie, he now says he can’t comment on it at this time. Thanks for the clarification on the matter Nelson.”
All we have to say is… Rollbar, Don’t Transform but Roll-Out (Out of the movie, that is).
UPDATE: Following cypherXR’s footsteps, many had contacted the owner of the “Rollbar” Jeep. Confirmations are coming in that it is indeed a Publicity Stunt to get the Jeep in the movie and measure Fan Reaction to it. We are saying a special “Thank You” to all of those who contributed to this article with various information by contacting us. Clearly, Rollbar’s latest news is not a Misinformation, It seems.
So, Rollbar may not Transform & Roll-Out (as an Autobot) after all.
