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

More Transformers 5 News
We reported on this back in 2014, but it appears with the roll out of Transformers 5 on the way. Paramount is just now in court fighting a $27 Million lawsuit. The suit claims that the Chinese company Wulong Karst Tourism, paid $750,000 to be placed in the film, but they never appeared in the movie that was shown in Cinemas. Could this be a setback for the Transformers 5 movie's product and licensing opportunities?
The Czech news site expats.cz reports that Michael Bay may be considering shooting locations within the Czech Republic for the upcoming Transformers 5. This comes shortly after prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka made a journey to Los Angeles to court Hollywood producers for filming in his home country. Producers for TF5 were allegedly seen scouting locations in the country, so I guess it worked! Keep reading for more details.
Entertainment website The Wrap is reporting tonight that comedian Jerrod Carmichael may be in talks to be part of the cast for Transformers 5, due to begin filming this summer. The Wrap previously reported the rumor of Nickelodeon star Isabela Moner also being in negotiations to star in the movie along with returning lead Mark Wahlberg. There's precious little in the way of details, and reportedly Paramount has declined to comment at this time, but with production getting ever closer, more and more of these rumors are likely to prove accurate. Keep reading for a link back to the original article.
Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, Inc. today unveiled its top talent writers room which will have responsibility for developing Hasbro’s cross-property interconnected onscreen universe featuring the brands G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM. This group includes some of the most notable creative talent in Hollywood, including Academy Award Winner Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who will have responsibility for overseeing the writers room on behalf of Hasbro and Paramount as well as serving as Executive Producer for all of the films.
Micheal Bay has let it be known that he's and about scouting for the Transformers 5 locations via this instagram account. And what could be more iconic than a shot of him at Stonehenge? Word is they will be shooting parts of the 5th Transformers movie in the UK so we'll have to wait and see where the devastation will take place. What other locations do you think would make a good playground for GIANT F*ING ROBOTS?
