DOTM Tanker Truck's identity revealed
Some of you may recall having seen an image of the Dark of the Moon tanker truck toy in our forums. By Hasbro's request, we had to take it down. But now, thanks to some images of this tanker truck toy transformed into its robot mode (which sadly cannot be shown here like the previous image that was removed), the identity of this behemoth vehicle has been revealed. Though, the figure looks as though it could be either a Voyager or a Leader (it's difficult to tell which).
Now, this may come off as a major spoiler to the plot of the third film, so those who do not wish to be spoilered by such must turn back now.
Okay, if you insist. Many have speculated as to who this guy is. The first hint I will give is that it is a Decepticon. So, it's not some Wreckers version of Ultra Magnus, unfortunately.
This guy has also been speculated as being Motormaster, Nemesis Prime, Onslaught, Octane, or any other guy who's previously been a truck. Get this, it's none of the above! The name of this guy is a very familiar one, but not of one who has been known to be a truck before.
And check this out, he is the Decepticon leader in the third film! That's right, he's in charge this time around. This guy had been in a tough battle previously, and so now wears a creepy-looking cloak on his left side to hide his battle scars. He has an 8-pack in his abs and some powerful looking pecs.
He has a small cannon attached to his right arm and five fingers on each hand. His legs look very sturdy and muscular, and his helmet sports a very pointy (but familiar) design.
Get ready for it. He is none other than the main big boss himself. Our beloved human-hating Emperor of Destruction.
He is the one, the only...
