Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Deluxe Class Dreadbot Revealed

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).

    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?

    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.
