Asian DOTM Toy Site Launch and Other Toy Links

The official release of the Transformers: Dark of the Moon toy line is just days away, at least in the United States. Depending on where you live it may have already arrived. Here is more links to galleries and reviews of upcoming DOTM products including the first look at the full body of the reformatted Megatron. But first the links start a website that is perfect for putting together your toy wish list.

Dark of the Moon Toys R Us WebsiteThe Asian side of Toys R Us has launched their website to support the upcoming worldwide launch of Transformers: Dark of the Moon toy line. The Toys R Us website covers China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan but they are using the Hasbro packaging so the information applies to North America and Europe. The region is getting the toys a few days earlier than the US with China starting today and the other countries tomorrow.

The main value of the website is in the Product section that provides a breakdown of the Wave 1 toys by class with in and out of package images for each toy along the toy bio. Very useful for creating that wish list. The site also has a Character section with the CGI headshots, bio and tech specs for each character that will be available in the toy line at launch. Thanks to Feris Othman for the link.

Dark of the Moon Coins
The Perth Mint has announced the June 7th release of 1oz Silver Proof Coins depicting Megatron, Optimus Prime, and Bumblebee. I have no idea of cost for the coins but the detail is sweet. To my knowledge this is the first time we get a full body look at the new earthbound version of Megatron. Thanks to Sahara for the link.

Cartoon Network DOTM Contest
The network has launched their own website for the release of the Dark of the Moon toy line that includes a contest for a chance to win 1 of 300 MechTech Transformers. It is open only to US residents, ages 5 to 17 and you have to provide an email address to enter. What MechTech you might win isn't provide but assuming it is a random choice that could be deluxe or voyager class. (via TFW2005, thanks to Sahara for the link)

DOTM Image Galleries - Nitro Bumblebee | Mudflap, Thundercracker | Jolt, Barricade | Starscream, Ratchet | Activators
More toy galleries, few of them new. Official looks at several deluxe class figures including a Starscream repaint. Voyager Starscream and Ratchet will being getting a Target exclusive release that will come with a comic book. Thanks to Sahara for links.

Voyager Sentinel Prime Video Review
Peaugh reviews the mid-sized version of Sentinel Prime. The figure is just ok, good enough for those on a budget but it seems if you really want Sentinel Prime than the leader class is the way to go.

DOTM Cyberverse Commanders Wave One
A combo of three reviews from Peaugh of the commander (aka legends) class toys that are coming out. The video covers the mini versions of Megatron, Sentinel Prime, and Ironhide. Tiny doesn't mean bad as these seem like fun figures to own.
