Did You Know?

This episode is one of the extremely rare instances where both Roller and his trailer are regarded as components of Optimus Prime himself, extensions of his consciousness, so to say. This was lifted straight from his original character description. In essentially all other episodes, the trailer and Roller seem to be separate entities, if not mere objects.See more »
