DOTM Prototype Deluxe Toys

Two new Transformers: Dark of the Moon toys have popped up online. Yahoo Auctions, Japan has prototype images for Deluxe class Dread (according to TFW2005) that appears to be the Chevy SUV Suburban. The vehicles sport a large Mechtech gone and pincers. I think the name Dread or Dreadbot is a fan created placeholder name until we learn who the official Decepticon "cast" is for the movie.

DOTMToys.com also posted images of Dread, along with pics of the prototype for the Deluxe class green NASCAR Impala. Previously we got a look at the Legends class version of the blue Impala and SUV. Story wise it doesn't tell us much but it is further mounting evidence that despite their non-standard look, the three NASCAR vehicles are Transformers and not just well armed human vehicles.

  1. Why don't they use some aluminium to make the toys more robust? They look so fragile at prototype stage already, the plastic is pretty cheap.

  9. The Wheeljack idea seems stronger and stronger. All the parts fit. The colors, the wedge shape design, now the head sculpt seems to also fit. This is still speculation at this point.

  10. judging by how these black SUVs look I'll go out on a limb and say that MB's firm will do the CGI on them like they did for Alice in the last movie seeing as they look so similar to that
