Rollbar is a member of the Commandos, the team that combines into Ruination. Though just as dedicated to fighting Autobots as the rest of his team, he's more restrained, especially in comparison to his fellow land-based Decepticon, Armorhide, though this is not hard. He's a practitioner of both Crystalocution and Metallikato, as well as jujitsu and other forms of Earthen Martial Arts. Curiously, he enjoys sauna baths and rainy days.
Also, he has a vague Southern accent.

Rollbar was one of several Autobot protoforms who was converted into a Decepticon by the Predacons. When choosing his alternate mode, Gas Skunk selected an army jeep, stating to himself that its cannon would make "scraplets" out of the Autobots.
Rollbar served as a member of the Commandos for most of the Predacon campaign on Earth, sometimes providing more sensible advice than his teammates, and was a proponent of the idea to sabotage the Global Space Bridge computer. He admits smashing a wall down is one way to get into a room, but "I myself woulda used the door".
When the Decepticons betrayed Galvatron, Rollbar was naturally among them, and thus suffered a reprogramming when their plan failed. When the Decepticons and Predacons were all defeated, Rollbar was taken to an asteroid prison with the rest of the villains.
Robots in DisguiseEdit
- Rollbar (Basic, 2000, 2001)
- Japanese ID number: D-006
- A redeco of the Generation One Swindle toy, Rollbar transforms into an FMC XR311 combat support vehicle. He has a pair of non-firing weapons that form a gun turret for his vehicle mode. As the toy uses the Scramble City style of connection, he can form any limb to any combination of similar robots, though naturally, he normally forms a limb to the combined robot Ruination.
- He was first released as part of the Takara Car Robots line in 2000. In 2001, Hasbro released the toy as part of the Robots in Disguise series. There are quite a few differences between the two versions. The Takara Rollbar uses dark green plastic, black windshield paint, has a white star with the letters "GV" on the hood, and an "Anti-Cybertron" symbol. The Hasbro version uses a lighter, more camo-green plastic, has a tan spray-wash on the hood rather than lettering, a silver windshield, and the Decepticon sigil.
- This mold was also used to make Leyland.
- Valdigus (Multi-pack, 2000)
- Japanese ID number: D-011
- In Japan, Rollbar/Greejeeber was also made available as part of a complete team multi-pack with his teammates Armorhide, Mega-Octane, Movor, and Ro-Tor. All toys were identical to their individual Japanese releases, but the set only came with a bio card for the combined form.
- Ruination (Ultra, 2003)
- The entire Commando team was redecoed in various shades of gray with "urban camo" patterns as part of a Wal-Mart exclusive gift set, oddly released well after the end of the Robots in Disguise line.
- Fire Blaster
- Hit 'em Laser
- Laser Blaster
- All-Terrain Terror
- Ruination (Ultra, 2004)
- The entire Ruination team was redecoed again to make another Wal-Mart exclusive set (why?), this time with a unified "desert camo" theme under the Universe banner. It came out at the same time as five other Wal-Mart Transformers exclusives, which led to a glut. Ruination seemed a particularly slow mover in this batch.
