Age of Extinction
First Looks at Transformers Dark of the Moon Deluxe Dreads, Ferrari Figures!

By bwbm on Friday, January 07, 2011



Thanks to DOTM Toys and a Yahoo! Japan auction from nihaohuwen, we have our first looks the deluxe figure versions of the Transformers: Dark of the Moon Dread and the still unnamed Ferrari 458 Italia.

First the one where we have the most images, the Dreads, a trio of government off-road outfitted Chevrolet Suburban SUVs, are part of the MechTech, sporting giant pincers and a giant gun.

The nihaohuwen auction shows a black-painted figure while DOTM Toys shows off a gray prototype.

We also know why they're named "Dreads," since the head of the robot will sport dreads, similar to what we saw for Frenzy in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Next up, the Ferrari. We get a medium shot of the gray prototype figure's robot mode as well as a shot of the vehicle from the top.

The vehicle is incomplete in this shot, showing off only the hull. However, we can see where the separations of the vehicle and slightly the transformation process.

To see the images, visit DOTM Toys and Yahoo! Japan.

No no no, you aren't looking at the evidence hard enough people, let's analyze these figures, what do they have? -Horns -Upside down Dreadlocks -Freaky as hell faces that only Bay could love. I think it's quite clear who this is meant to be....

Since I am not the only one to be feeling this theory; I'm REALLY tempted to get out the old Soap-Box, but I think I'll wait 'til we have some more concrete information. Generally where there's smoke there's fire, but if there isn't, why call the fire brigade? This is Bayfo... read more

glad you found the video, thanks! I'm thinking it's the same toy, just multiple copies. And I'm glad to see a deluxe class of the NASCAR, after seeing the Legends (assumed?) painted version earlier, it'll be nice to see a better version. The Dread shown here is definately not t... read more

^ (link) I'm hoping The Dreads aren't just a group of clones. I was really hoping to see 3 exact same SUVs, but with different transformations and different looking bots. So hopefully the image I was looking at is just several copies of that one toy. The site is down, so I'm stuck w... read more

My first thought on seeing the Dreads in bot mode was Insecticons too! And surprisingly, I can actually see this being the case based off existing knowledge. Obviously the first clue is their bot appearance. Secondly ... 3 Insecticons, Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel. During filming of a freew... read more

I still like them. I agree the toys are mistransformed and Bay might make them into shameful racial stereotypes but I don't care about the crappy movie as I already know it will suck. Really, what are the odds that Bay will actually make a GOOD Transformers movie with this third film? I would wa... read more

Empire Online has posted a ranking of the 100 greatest characters to feature in a movie, as selected by their readership. And Optimus Prime managed to make the list! Just barely avoiding falling in to dead last place, Optimus Prime ranks 98 out of 100. We're not entirely sure on what criteria people made their choices, but the bullet points on Empire's list might have you believe it's due to Optimus riding a dinosaur. We can but wonder if he wouldn't have ranked higher had he not murdered Frasier a short time later. Click through to get a link to the full list.
