First Looks at Transformers Dark of the Moon Deluxe Dreads, Ferrari Figures!
bwbm - 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

The Marin Independent Journal is reporting today that production for Transformers Universe: Bumblebee has begun in the Peacock Gap area, in San Rafael, California. The movie caught attention recently by taking a sizeable incentive from the state of California to film the entire movie within its borders. This leg of production is reportedly codenamed Brighton Falls, though whether that will relate to the content of the movie, such as the location it takes place in, is unknown. A photo from just outside the closed filming was posted with the article. You can find that mirrored below.
The new release of 2007's Leader Class movie Optimus Prime under the Transformers Tribute subline is now available for purchase in the US via Amazon. Like the Orion/Optimus Evolution 2 pack before it, this is apparently an Amazon exclusive. But, unlike the very unexpectedly reasonable price point of the 2 pack, Leader Optimus is currently listed at $79.99. But of course that does mean it qualifies for free shipping whether or not you're an Amazon Prime member. Is the very first movie Optimus with a fancy updated deco worth that to you? If so, hit the link in the full post below, and keep reading for a set of new stock photos of the toy.

Hailee Steinfeld, the first confirmed cast member and lead character in the upcoming Transformers Universe: Bumblebee, has shared on social media a quick behind the scenes photo of herself in wardrobe. On the instagram post, the photo has the caption, "Meet Charlie Watson", revealing to us the name of her character. Bumblebee recently boasted the addition of John Cena in a starring role, on the same day it was made known the movie's debut had been pushed back to December of 2018 from its original June premiere.

Confirming a job listing by Boulder Media earlier this week and long-ago reports of plans stemming from the fables TFCU Writers' Room, Hasbro announced in today's investor meeting that a CGI Transformers movie is in the works! Set in the current film continuity but with no firm release date, it is part of a larger commitment by Hasbro to release one animated movie a year. Keep reading for details!
They say truth is stranger than fiction, and when word comes down the pipe from Variety that the "Bumblebee" movie will be going head to head with "Aquaman" in the theaters, it is not hard to hear the echo from Big Bang Theory: "Aquaman Sucks!" Sure, good for a laugh. But there's a certain irony here that is more than Meets the Eye. Arguably, these franchise characters both share a sort of disdain from the fandom, followed by an intense puzzlement as to why they are being forced into the spotlight, regardless of the uproar from fans.
