    Wasn't the WV minibus a last minute find, by the producers? Perhaps he was always supposed to be a Dread like SUV, but since it changed at the twelfth hour, all Hasbro could do at that point was to just name this toy something else.

    Berserker just leads me even farther away from hopes there will be a Deluxe Hooligan.

    Hooligan's alt mode van was a last minute addition for he movie. So there is a great chance that Hasbro didn't have the van specs for a toy and so his toy isn't going to happen and or will happen later.

    Berserker is a completely different character and his Suburban SUV was seen on set.

    I kind of predict it will have to be something that Takara will do. Just give Berserker a new Van Shell (Doesn't have to be a VW) and a new head.

    Any bets on if Beserker will have an english line in the movie?

    I was watching the theme song for a show called Cubix and one scene some how made me think of all the scene from the Last Knight trailer of all the Decepticons in one scene.

    Given how there's no proof of this, I highly doubt Berserker isn't supposed to be Hooligan. A few reasons point to this;

    1- The Minibus being a last minute find, so Hasbro stuck with the SUV.
    2- Hooligan isn't a name Hasbro has the trademarks to anymore.
    3- SUV Berserker has two toys now, and I highly doubt a brief 'hi and die' character would take place over a main Decepticon.
    4- As said above, there's no proof of this Dread SUV seen on set despite this being reported for months now.

    I might be wrong, but who knows at this point.

    Perhaps, but then why switch from the Crankcase model to the Crowbar model?

    1. Both the mini-bus (as seen) on set and a Dread SUV was seen on set and pictures taken.
    2. How do you know Hasbro doesn't have the trademarks for Hooligan now?
    3. All Cons except Megs at this point can be hi and die characters.
    4. Can't find the pics now but it was on set in Michigan.

    I don't care if they have to just put a new head on Berserker or retool a CW Truck mold with a new torso and head, just as long as we get a Deluxe Hooligan.

    Berserker is probably based on old concept art, which is often outdated to the finalized design. A good example of this is Leadfoot, where his Deluxe has long legs while his model is stumpy.

    1- Then where are these pictures?
    2- It hasn't popped up in a long time, and TFW covers all trademarks that Hasbro gets. Hooligan wasn't one of them.
    3- Barricade, Onslaught, and Hooligan/Berserker have been spotted on three locations now. This supposed Dread SUV isn't seen much, so not all the Decepticons are hi and die.
    4- No pics, no dice.

    Well I'm sure someone has pics of it. The pics were posted up here in TFW when filming was going on. I just can't find the thread now

    I vaguely remember seeing it too, but now can't find it. I also remember seeing pics of Bumblebee's AoE car on the TLK set, but can't find that either.

    Was Stinger's car mode a last minute selection? Because even though we did not get a Deluxe figure of him from Hasbro, we did get a repaint of AOE Bumblebee from Takara. And I'm happy with that. Which is why I hope Takara will pull through with Hooligan.

    Repaint Berserker and add a new head to make it like this van and you've got yourself a deal.

    Not that we know of. He was seen on set pretty early.
