At the time of writing the review for Modfans AL01S Ruller (the silver version), AL01T was still on pre-order and awaiting arrival into the Vault. Well he’s here now and I’m going to write a few words and take some pictures for you to look over. Oh hell, who am I kidding, I’m copying & pasting and maybe changing a line or two. As let’s be honest, aside from the colour, it’s the same bloody figure! So you can read on with an air of familiarity or just look at the lovely pictures, choose your fate!

Modfans…. I’d heard that name before but I couldn’t place it. So, I took myself off to the Internet and soon found out where I’d seen it before. A few years back they produced a ‘talking’ fusion canon replacement for MP-36 Megatron that spoke English. With my thought niggle fully abated I could turn my focus to the figure that they were releasing, AL01S Ruller, or an MP version of a transforming Roller to you and me. Now I don’t usually hold much value in having things transform that hadn’t had that ability previously, for example; Cybertron, The Ark, The Nemesis etc… Don’t get me wrong, I can see the appeal but it’s not something that has really caught my attention. However after seeing the preview images of Ruller…. Modfans, you have my attention!

As far back as I can remember, I have always liked the Omnibots. Which is curious as I have never actually had any physical experienced them, that is to say I have neither owned nor played with them. There have been numerous occasion where I could have owned them when I got back into collecting, but something else always seemed to take priority. For those that may be unaware, the Omnibots were offered as a mail away promotion billed as the ‘Reinforcements from Cybertron’ in 1985. To my knowledge, these mail away figures were never made available here in the UK.
