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

Once again we're on the verge of a growing number of production side tidbits for a Transformers movie. Website My Entertainment World has updated with a very brief listing for Transformers 5, revealing when filming for the next movie is due to begin. With the publicity around the Writers' Room project recently we can at least hope that there will be a completed script by the time they fire up the cameras, though absence of such certainly hasn't stopped production in the past...

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that a live-action Transformers event called Transformers Live will open in China in 2017. The event is said to "be a cross between an action-adventure spectacle, a theme park attraction and a theatrical show," and is expected to feature custom robotics among other features.

Universal Studios Hollywood is gearing up the Chinese New Year with celebrations featuring Lunar New Year celebration that begins nect Saturday, January 30 to continue through Sunday, February 14, 2016.

Just as Michael Bay always comes back to do the next Transformers movie, it seems now a reliable trend that Michael Bay will choose Chicago as a shooting location. Maybe he just enjoys Portillo's, and I couldn't blame him for that, but whatever the cause it sounds like Chicago will see more robot action. In an interview with WGN Radio's Dean Richards focused on Bay's movie 13 Hours, the subject of Transformers and a return to Chicago come up briefly. We have a summary of the relevant portion of the interview. Click through to take a look, and to get a link back to the original if you want to hear more about 13 Hours.
Thanks to EDFHOBBIES who offers a first look at the 2016 Chevy Camaro 6th generation car release. While this one has been customized somewhat, it cannot be denied that Chevy is continuing to how love for Transformers Bumblebee namesake. According to the post, the black stripes and Autobot symbols ,and other custom touches were added after delivery. So we don't know if this is an official Transformers model, but it is still a Bumblebee to the owner and many fans.
