DOTM Tanker Truck's identity revealed

Posted by:

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...

Finally! After the first two movie's toys, they finally managed to get it right! I think that it will be interesting to see Megatron as a truck for the first time. I'm really digging the robot modes' look for the new film!

So I've seen the pics of him and Robot mode, and I've got to say, I think he looks really cool. I'm glad to see him with an Earth mode finally.

I guessed it when I saw the toy picture. ask sabrblade, it's true.

@Masterforce - Fixed. I was in a hurry when I wrote all that.

@Wing Saber - Did you? I barely looked at that thread when it was up, so I vaguely remember.

Best. Leadup. Ever.
I am actually kinda excited for the new movie now.
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-12-22 04:06:01
what's the bet he will be called tankertron XD
especially with the truck not monkey people out there
Masterforce said,  - 2010-12-22 13:53:45
I hope he'll become Galvatron. That would be really cool
Wing Saber said,  - 2010-12-22 15:23:44
Yepp. Then Lioconvoy told me it was very unlikely
Saberfrost said,  - 2010-12-22 21:15:18
Whoa didn't see that coming!
Masterforce said,  - 2010-12-22 22:47:43
Lol truck not monkey I remember that! Bay throws another curveball, but he did already screw up a mostly successful franchise... but making Megatron a truck? Come on!!!
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-12-23 10:55:13
wingsaber its unlikely that megs becomes galvatron because hasbro value the megatron tag rather than galvatron.
i would like to see him become galvatron but saddly i dout that will happen wich is a shame.

i am from hear on out coining the term gun not truck XD
Wing Saber said,  - 2010-12-23 11:38:15
Lioconvoy, that's not what I was referring to, I was referring to my guess that the truck was galvatron in the forums when the toy picure came out
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-12-23 15:40:47
i know wingsaber but megatron becomes galvatron in all fiction and i am pointing out that hasbro value the name of megs rather than galv.
its not 100 percent impossible that he will be galvatron by the time dotm comes out but megatron is also a mor recognizable name than galvatron.

Wouldn't it be cool if they had some one-on-one fight with Prime and Megatron playing "chicken" in truck mode just like they did in the cartoon, but instead Megs it was Motormaster?! ;-)))
