    The Dread reminds me of the Jackhammer from M.A.S.K.

    The Dread has an awesome alt-mode, but I'm still not crazy about the botmode. I especially don't like how they've handled the legs. Something a bit shapeless about them. But the headsculpt looks pretty good here. Always nice to see light-piping that works.

    Think I still prefer the legends version. Looks pretty innovative for that size class.

    Nice clear look at the robo-mullet there on the Wrecker. He's carrying two halves of a car on his shoulders, but he sort of manages to pull it off. Not the best legend ever, but I like how they gave him one clamp hand.

    Goes to show the size-class limitations that they couldn't put it in both.

    I hadn't noticed before, but the Nascar Legends has articulation in his, uh, claw-hand. Pretty spiffy for that size.

    Curious about the hands, actually. The bots seem to be getting more human-like in design in DotM, yet this one's hands are anything but (and don't appear to be hand-held weapons).

    That Dread is hilarious to me if his name is really Crankcase, because I can't see him without comparing him to the triggercon Crankcase that was my first TF. It's...very weird trying to connect the two.

    I like the Deluxe Dread, but I do kind of wish it had the front of the SUV over the shoulders like it's Legends counterpart has. Still like it though. Will probably get both.

    Can't wait to see what that blue Wrecker will look like in Deluxe form.

    The Wrecker looks like he is wearing a judges wig.

    I've said this sort of thing in the past and been found a liar, but I'll say it again any way--I will not buy anymore TF movie toys.

    These images are making that decision far easier than I thought it would be.

    Wow, That Wrecker looks straight out of Space 1999 or some other ultra lame 60's sci-fi show.

    He also reminds me of Clamps. "You want I should give him da clamps Donbot"- Clamps from Futurama.

    These designs are even more nonsensical than the last two horrible wastes of film, antlers AND dreadlocks? Really?

    I love it!! Awesome. I am so getting tired of dread hair and well.....hair period. Scourge is the exception because his goatee is metal and so is Wreck Gar's. All I know is these Dreads better not swing around, they better be metal too.
