Profile: Many mistake Rollbar’s impulsive bravado for foolishness. But the truth is he’s just a rough-and-tumble kind of guy who thrives on taking chances and putting his life on the line. He enjoys competition in any form –from watching a football game on television to being an active participant in an all out war. He has a penchant for spouting somewhat cornball, macho clichés, particularly in the heat of battle, such as let’s show ‘em what we’re manufactured of Autobots,” or “when the going gets tough, the tough get driving.” More often than not, Rollbar’s pronouncements elicit laughter, not greater braver, from his comrades. But he doesn’t seem to be bothered by their reactions one bit. He either doesn’t hear them or chooses to ignore them. He just plunges on allowing no deadly danger or looming obstacle to deter him from completing his appointed task.
Abilities: In jeep mode, Rollbar has tremendous agility. When necessary he’ll launch himself into a series of flips and rolls with hardly any loss of speed. He can traverse most terrains, no matter how treacherous. Built-in chemical sensors, radiation detectors, and an array of aural and visual recording devices make him an ideal tracker
Weaknesses: In jeep mode, Rollbar has a less than average sense of balance. His design makes him prone to flipping over, particularly on sharp fast turns. His agility usually, but not always spares him any serious injuries.
