All about the Internet, images of several upcoming toys for the Transformers: Dark of the Moon toyline have begun to surface. what we have provided here is a rundown of several DOTM figures that we have had yet to report here, all of which come from Yahoo! Japan, RinkYa, HK-TF, and/or

First, Yahoo! Japan has auctions with images of:
* Voyager Megatron
* An armor-less version the #88 green/white Chevy Impala NASCAR Wrecker that looks to be a Deluxe
* A new mold of Starscream of an unknown size class (could be a Deluxe, as we've previously heard)
* A Deluxe version of a Decepticon SUV
* A Legends version of the #48 blue/white NASCAR Wrecker (minus his armor too)

RinkYa has an auction with images of a Legends version of a Decepticon SUV.

HK-TF has a gallery comprising of images of:
* The Deluxe Deceptcion SUV
* The new Starscream mold
* The Legends Decepticon SUV's transformation
* The Legends #48 armor-less Wrecker's transformation
* A new Legends Bumblebee that look kinda remolded from the ROTF version has images of:
* A smaller sized Human Alliance figure
* A new Voyager Optimus Prime (with Megatron and a new Ironhide)
* A new Leader Bumblebee (with the new Ironhide)

Many and most of these figures all come with Mechtech weapons, which is the gimmick of this line.

A few more toy images have surfaced. Taobao has images of a new Ratchet figure (redecoed from the Voyager Ratchet figure), and ACToys has images of new redecos of Legends Skids and Legends Barricade. Skids is definitely himself, while Barricade looks different enough be either himself or a new guy.

Interesting i think(if i read correctly) that the SUV's name is Crankcase.
But they aren't as good as i expected, i might pick up one or two.

The SUVs are the footsoldiers of the film, not one guy. So, no, not Crankcase. Their name is rumored to be something like "the Dreads" (a la the Dreadnoks from G.I. Joe).

Well, the DOTM line seems to be comprised of weird repaints and legends figures, multiple versions of a character (coughbumblebee), and distorted-looking figures (coughoptimusprime). Quite disappointed, but I think the better ones will be revealed later on like shockwave. I will have to get that Megatron, though! If this new Megatron is used a certain way, it has the potential to become very cool. But then again Bay makes the worst out of his resources. He makes putrid water when life gives him lemons, not lemonade.

I don't. I like this "Dread" rumored name.

I find the Megatron interesting, in that he has what apears some "cloth" covering part of his face... could this be in the film, covering some of the battle damage he received (including being shot in the face with his own cannon) in that battle with Powerup Optimus?
