Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Deluxe Class Dreadbot Revealed

Posted on 01-07-2011 at 08:17 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
Transformers-3-Dark-of-the-Moon-Dread-Deluxe
Yahoo Auctions, Japan has posted what is claiming to be a Deluxe Class Dread from Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

This Chevrolet SUV Suburban comes with a Mechtech gun and the vehicle mode sports pincers.

Known on various occasions as Dreads, Dreadbots or Dreadbox, these SUVs were seen mostly hanging around you-know-who or chasing the Autobots during the filming of Transformers 3.

Recently, we saw the robot mode thanks to a Legends Class Toy.

Update: DOTMToys has posted some Prototype Deluxe Dreads. Now we have a better look at how they will look like in the third movie. Also seen in the Prototype pictures, is a new unknown figure. Looks like a car with a Mechtech gun, as seen on one particular pic (behind the two Dreadbots).

Those grey claw bits make me think about the Insecticons.

Per the product description:


More Transformers Movie 3

I think a new design new products. I do not know the name yet.


Are all the figures having these giants things hanging off of them?

I'm getting DEFINITE Shrapnel vibes.

Dreads... Insecticon homages?
Fort Max
My immeadiate reaction to the picture can't really be posted.

That's just mad, it makes 07 payload's giant telescoping chest claw look restrained...


I love it!

Vehicle mode looks good and the gun definitely has some kind of transforming gimmick, looks like a good toy so far.

Perhaps but after the rotf bike sisters debacle I think Hasbro wouldn't want to try and sell three very similar support characters again so they're probably identical.

Edit: New picture on DotM toys, looks like the same figure.

That's pretty freaky, but awesome ! Reminds me of G1 Roadgrabber.

The mechtech pegholes on top don't seem too intrusive fortunately.

Hmmm, 3 SUV trucks, maybe Insecticons reimagined. I'm cool with that. Decent alt mode, I await bot mode.

I'm with you all on the vibe, but we already got an Insecticon homage last movie with y'know, what's his name? Oh yeah, Insecticon

Still, these Dread guys are looking awesome, can't wait for bot mode pics.

WOW. Must buy right there! I love how ridiculously over the top monstrous and insectoid it looks. I wonder who the other car is, though.

I'm pretty certain it's the same figure, bonnet can just be seen on it's back behind the claws and the door panels on the arms are the same as seen in the car pic.

Wasn't talking about that one, but this guy;

I'm starting to think the Dreads are DOTM's version of the Insecticons. I'm okay with that and lovin' those pincers!

No.. It's not the Ferrari 458 Italia. Nor is it the Mercedes E550 (Einsteinbot).

THIS is a Ferrari 458 Italia...

ersico
i like this alot better than all the previously previewed dotm toys...maybe i will get it
Xaddion
Perhaps part of the Wreckers?

agree This year there will be three homages at insecticons (FP Causality, Mastermind Assassin's squad and these Dreads)
SKowl
cool - love those SUV bots!
frenzyrumble
I'm getting a Shrapnel vibe from that one also. good stuff.
Digilaut
Don't really like the 'dreads'. Alt mode is nice but I don't like the very insecty bot modes and the huge pincers. I'm also not a big fan of the Activators-like 'superdetailed arms with flat rectangles attached'...but yeah, I will definitely wait for some properly transformed, painted toys..as well as their cgi counterparts.

The other robot looks cooler to me!
Shinobitron
Wasnt every decepticon in movie 1 and 2 nothing but insecticons?

Like that that they are going with more of a robotic (for TFs anyway) aesthetic to the figures but I just wish they would drop all this looking like bug BS.

The top view is the "deployed" weapons mode. This is either the 88, 48, or 40 hybrid bot.
Fort Max
I really can't tell what car that is supposed to be, it's bugging me.

Takara_destron

FMA1987
YAYAY we finally get to see what he drones look like and i am loving the nascar cars hot damn they look good
rich_prime
WOW SUV become Insecticons



can't wait to see their CGI in the movie
FREAKING HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
INSECTICONS



Adding these to my collection
Ra88
Yeah, has to be one of the Wreckers, it even looks to have a cap and bigass sunglasses to match the blue one's mullet. ...

Anyways, I hope he comes with plug on weapons for the battle mode look.
Rogzilla
I hope the pincers are retractable in some way. I can't see why they wouldn't be but I'd like the option to have them under the SUV in vehicle mode.
cypherXR
The car is definitely the #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Chevy Impala. I'm 100% on that. And the head sculpt is completely different from the one we saw on the Legends class #48 Impala we saw earlier. So I think it's safe to assume that the Wreckers have robot modes and all have different personalities.

And I must say, I love them both. Not only as a NASCAR fan, but the Dreads look wicked. This is one of the most exciting time before the movies. All the toy leaks make me giddy.
Fort Max
Wow, I'm impressed, really impressed, Hasbro actually managed to get stealth force into deluxe sized figures.

I think all the toys in this line do. Mechtech!

I like how all the deluxes seem to have recessed holes for the Mechtech stuff. Much less noticeable.
Mister Gone
Hmmm so it looks like the figures all come with a "Cyber Planet Key" to activate the action feature. As long as those Speed Racer-esque claws retract out of sight, this could be a cool figure.
HIM666fan
Really love this! I hope that these guys are like megs minions!!! which im getting a felling they are awsome. Bay is getting these guys right now i cant wait find out if Einstein bot is Wheeljack and what hes gonna look like.

The dreads are gonna kick so much ass!!

and if the wreckers figures are gonna have hidden weapons and stuff and transform im all for that badass!!!

You mean like it has in this picture???

Look carefully behind the Dreads. There's the Impaler right there, complete with Mechtech cannon plugged in on the top, but the other weapons concealed!

Insecticons

Barricade24
Well now I guess we have an anwser we are not getting figures covered in peg holes YEAH!!!

And it's nice to to now they can make the gimick work without compromising the vehicle form.

This figure is aboslutely amazing best I've seen so far.

I love you hasbro.

We know at least one of them will talk because Bill Fagerbakke is voicing the #48 Wrecker.
