New toys are coming - DOTM and maybe TF: Prime

Posted by:

You are reading that title right. There is evidence that two new toylines are drawing nearer and nearer to their release dates. First, dotmtoys.com has leaked a listing sheet of the first wave of the Transformers: Dark of the Moon toyline onto the Internet, which has been mirrored in such places as Seibertron.com and TFW2005.com.

The listings not only show many of the coming figures' names, but also their size classes and their TakaraTomy ID numbers as well. And because of these numbers, this list may hail from TakaraTomy instead of Hasbro. They are as follows (all misspellings are replicated from the list):

T/F DA-01 BUMBLEBEE | Leader | 422341
T/F DA-02 SENTINEL PRIME | Leader | 422358
T/F DA-03 OPTIMUS PRIME WITH TRAILER | Voyager+ | 423515
T/F DA-04 IRONHIDE | Voyager | 422372
T/F DA-05 BUMBLEBEE | Deluxe+ | 422389
T/F DA-06 AUTOBOT RATCHET | Deluxe | 422396
T/F DA-07 AUTOBOT SKIDS | Deluxe | 422402
T/F DA-08 SIDESWIPE | Deluxe | 422044
T/F DA-09 RAODBUSTER | Deluxe | 422019

T/F DA-10 SPONSORED CAR #2 (WRECKER) | Deluxe | 422068
T/F DA-11 ARCEE | Deluxe | 425281
T/F DA-12 AIR RIDE | Deluxe | 425298
T/F DD-01 MEGATRON | Voyager | 422471
T/F DD-02 STARSCREAM | Deluxe | 422488
T/F DD-03 BARRICADE | Deluxe | 422112
T/F DD-04 CRANKCASE | Deluxe | 422495
T/F DA-13 MILITARY HELICOPTER | Voyager | 422037
T/F DA-14 JOLT | Deluxe | 422051
T/F DD-05 NEW VILLIAN | Voyager | 422105



As for Transformers: Prime, ACToys has a rumor that toys for that series are coming sooner than expected. The text translates out to say that a reliable source claims that five small new Autobots are in development. No images, only details. Start saving. 

That's all it tells us. No release date, no size info, no price info, nothing else. Though, these five small Autobots could be main cast of the Prime cartoon. But, we'll just have to wait and see what becomes of this rumor.

Yay for WITH TRAILER, NEW VILLAIN, SENTINEL PRIME, WRECKERS, and ROADBUSTER.

sentinal is a must have for me and its a must for me if they bring a megatron leader in his earth form.

the reckers again a must as is roadbuster

new ironhide voiager maybe? and starscream deluxe? interesting.
i thaut arcee was dead and wasn't returning, same with baracade and jolt

I did not believe the bizarre rumor that the Fire Truck is/was Sentinel Prime. Could be the old bearded dude inside the Ark on the moon. That I would believe...
Wing Saber said,  - 2011-01-11 17:18:05
Lioconvoy: Arcee was dead, but niether Barricade nor Jolt died. Barricade simply dissapeared and nothing interesting happened to Jolt whatsoever
lioconvoy said,  - 2011-01-11 17:43:26
wingsaber baracade was killed in the comic and novalisation and jolt is not going to apear in dotm so i would prosume that he gets killed off in the comic before dotm.
sentinal could b the firetruck and could b the old dude on the moon.
we will have to see his bot mode to make sure.

as for voiager plus that sounds interesting. perhaps the trailer makes prime in to a ultra class or perhaps leader if he includes armour in or constructed from the trailer.
megatron will most likely not hav a trailer as it will be included in his bot mode.
looks like the cloak for him in the pic that was taken down had the rear of tanker mode as his full cloak but we will have to wait and see

Lioconvoy: They most likely wouldn't make what happens in the comics follow through to the movies because a whole lot of people who watch the movies don't read the comics, like me

Come on! TF names are getting suckier and suckier. First it was Lugnut, and now "New Villain?" cold.
Saberfrost said,  - 2011-01-11 19:03:52
New Villain prob. means shockwave, or yellow guy(if decepticon)
Alpha Blade 91 said,  - 2011-01-11 20:10:58
I agree with Saberfrost, its either shockwave or our yellow friend (still praying for midget unicron)

@Masterforce: Those names are not final. They would never go with such pathetic names as "New Villain", "Sponsored Car #2", "Military Helicopter", etc. Those are just placeholders. It's not that difficult to realize that.

@Lioconvoy: While Barricade indeed killed in the Movie 1 comic and novel adaptations, he survived the first movie. And he went on to appear in The Reign of Starscream comic, the Alliance comic, the Tales of the Fallen comic, The Veiled Threat novel, and the Cyber Missions web cartoon.

The Reign of Starscream shows what happened to cause him to disappear from the movie. After he swerved off screen while driving ahead of Brawl and Bonecrusher, he tried to go for Bumblebee, but Ironhide took him out, causing him to crash and go offline. Starscream would later find him still lying beside the road and woke him up.

As for why there are Barricade, Arcee, and Jolt toys in this toyline, even if they don't show up in this movie, there's still a valid reason for there being toys of these bots in this toyline. More toys = more $$$ for Hasbro.

@Wing Saber: Actually, the IDW movie comics DO mostly follow the movies' events. Ever wonder why Starscream had tatoos in ROTF when he did not have them in Movie 1? The Alliance comics show him carving them onto his body. Ever wonder what was up with Megatron following The Fallen instead of being his own master? The Defiance comics explain their history. And these comics were all released prior to the ROTF movie's theatrical release.

i know that baracade survives in 1 comic but the others are verry contridictory. i intend to stick my fingers in my ears and hum verry lowdely untill all the contridictions go away lol

arcee and jolt though hmm do you think they get new molds? personally i would love to see a better mold for jolt.
i have suspisions that the copter is shockwave and my reasoning is quite simple. in the game he was a copter triple changer so it would be cool if they did the same in this film.
Sabrblade. said,  - 2011-01-12 07:11:48
1 comic? It's not a comic he survives in, it's the movie itself. And there's no way contradictions are going to vanish. There's plot holes and retcons all over this franchise that'll likely never get fixed. Thus, I guess you'll be humming for the rest of your life.

And those deaths of Barricade occurred because the novel and adapted comic were based off of early movie scripts that were not the final product. The movie is the final, completed version, and in it, Barricade didn't die. Which is why he appears in the sequel comics/ROTF prequel comics. The films apparently take precedence over all else.

Military copter??????????
Sabrblade said,  - 2011-01-12 22:14:02
Yeah, what's wrong with there being a guy with a military helicopter altmode?
Leader class Bumblebee. And Voyager class, and Scout class, and every other class he hasn't officially been in. Oh, wait, that's it!

Would you believe this is the guy who went 17 years without a new toy?
lioconvoy said,  - 2011-01-13 10:58:04
yeah they are a little repetative with bumblebee figures and i wish another caricter would get the lets make thousands of figures treatment it would b a nice change

and sabrblade ah i see so the oficial statement is that baracade is alive. it was confusing me as you will understand from the differences lol
and true i will b humming all thrue my life ... i better get some throat sweets to hand XD
Jacob said,  - 2011-01-13 17:59:53
I wonder if unicron is going to be in dotm?
Wing Saber said,  - 2011-01-13 19:32:54
If the wreckers are in the movie, then maybe "Military Helicopter" is Whirl?
cyberwuss said,  - 2011-01-14 14:30:21
I agree with Wing Saber on Military Copter is Whirl because apparently the A and D in DA and DD before the names mean Autobot and Decepticon and we see DA before Military Copter
lioconvoy said,  - 2011-01-14 18:31:43
makes sence and would be a little silly if only the cars were reckers
Masterforce said,  - 2011-01-16 12:38:48
A deluxe Starscream? That's stupid! But I'm dissapointed our "new villain" Shockwave is only getting a voyager. Like they say, bigger is better!
