    I accidentally stumbled accross the names of the remaining (so far unseen) deluxe movie toys.

    The Autobot Tow Truck = Longarm
    Autobot Pick-up truck = Dropkick
    Decepticon Armoured Truck = Payload

    These are American toy listings so it's the USA names. I also found a listing for the Real Gear watch but it didn't reveal the name.

    Dropkick sounds a good name plus they're re-using some minicon names.

    It's on on-line toystore. The listings haven't gone live yet as I assume they're sticking to 2 June date set by hasbro.

    Interesting. I wonder what Longarm looks like... and perhaps Dropkick is an unused design for Ironhide?

    Hopefully Payload isn't another combat drone...

    So, the listing for Dropkick being an Autobot pickup is wrong than? And, if that's the case, how come they have the Swerve drone listed on the Autobot side... granted he's not selectable yet so I can't tell if it's the same.

    Interesting listing for some of those characters. Wonder if it's a hint at some things we can look forward to for the upcoming movie toy line as well... like Jetfire, Cliffjumper, Evac, Mirage and Smokescreen off the top of my head with the Autobots... we've heard all those Decepticons before...

    Edit: Just going through the deluxe listings I realized that the Decepticon drone is named Swindle... so Swerve could be a totally different character...

    We already know about these via the video game site. Payload= Low-rider truck Deceptidrone, Longarm= Crane Deceptidrone, Dropkick= Truck Deceptidrone. (Though the previous two may have had their faces "Autobot-ized" like in the game if you're playing as the Decepticons, in order to make them Autobots and even out the toy ranks a bit more.) You can play as any of these characters in the "Battle for the Allspark" game.

    Swerve is likely a card-game only character, given that it appears he's based off of Alternators Swerve.

    Are there pictures of Swerve somewhere on the site? I've only seen Cliffjumper, Evac & Jetfire on there.

    From the original thread when the card game site first went live:

    EDIT: Actually, on a closer look Swerve's listing appears to be switched with Cliffjumper's. Click on Cliffjumper to see the "real" Swerve.

    Aw man, no Scrapper? I love that little forklift. Got me 100+ wins on the Battle for the Allspark with him. Here's hoping for wave 2

    I could be wrong about the factions. The listings are just, for example 'Longarm (tow truck.) I assumed the factions based on the old list of movie toys from a few months ago which revealed Arcee, Swindle, the basic repaints, etc.

    I think I've found another name:

    'High Score 100'

    It's for a 'game controller' so I think that may be the gorilla looking Real Gear toy.

    If Longarm does end up a Decepticon, then the Autobots are getting more and more outnumbered.

    Ahh, just found a Japanese listing for the Tow Truck which has an 'MA' number which aparently means 'Movie Autobot.' Longarm is an Autobot in Japan at least.

    More than likely it's the same Payload from the game.

    EDIT: Already pointed out, whoops.

    Since the contest on the Game site dealt with naming the Scrapper and Mixmaster drones, I'd imagine they either won't get made or will be in one of the very last waves of the movie line.

    I hope that's the case, there's a serious lack of forklifts in Transformers.

    Wow, cool names that conjure up so many different images in my head, yet I always manage to be nowhere near what the actual toy ends up looking like.
