They have also posted the following list of figures that are reported as Takara's DOTM wave three assortment. As you can see the previously mentioned Voyager Class Sentinel Prime makes an appearance on this list as well. Also of note Deluxe Skywarp and the HA Scouts are paired with movie characters.
T/F DA20 FIRETRUCK (SENTINEL) (Voyager)
T/F DA21 THREE WHEELED MOTORCYCLE w/SAM (Scout-Class Human Alliance)
T/F DA22 GUN DRONE w/LENNOX (Scout-Class Human Alliance)
T/F DA23 DUNE BUGGY w/EPPS (Scout-Class Human Alliance)
T/F DD09 JET (Deluxe)
T/F DD10 SKYWARP (Deluxe)
T/F DD11 SNOW MOBILE w/VILLAN (Scout-Class Human Alliance)
Take this with a healthy dose of salt, but here's the latest information on the next Transformers DOTM trailer. First off the British Board of Film Classification has listed the rating and time of the next trailer. They got some of their information wrong, as they list the director as Ivan Reitman, and have the film starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher! That part can obviously be disregarded, but the rating and time should be accurate. They rate the trailer as PG and have it clocking in at 2 minutes 18 seconds.
On to the second part. nelson, the site admin for director Michael Bay's Shoot for the Edit forums, chimed in on a topic about the BBFC information listed above. According to him the next trailer will not debut until mid to late April, which would debunk the previous list of potential trailer and TV spot dates that popped up last month. It tied the next trailer with Sucker Punch, which opens this Friday March 25th.

Combine it all and it looks like we will be getting a PG rated 2 minute 18 second trailer in mid to late April. If you believe Bay's right hand man nelson and a site that listed Transformers DOTM director as Ivan Reitman that is.
Images have surfaced on the Chinese toy forum ACToys of what could be future Kre-O building sets. The sets appear to be based on G1 Ratchet and some variation of Sentinel Prime. Also seen are four new Kreon mini-figures: G1 Ratchet, G1 Soundwave, Sentinel Prime(?), and a Seeker. The images are mirrored below.
Having Transformers Prime withdrawals yet? Today starts our three week break between new episodes until "Speed Metal" airs on April 8th, 2011. Luckily TVGuide has given us some brief plot details for the upcoming episodes "Speed Metal" and "Predatory". It appears last episode's Knockout will be making a return in "Speed Metal" and a new character will be introduced in "Predatory".
Episode 11 Speed Metal 04/08/11
Jack tries to be impressive, with Bumblebee's help, but Knockout's arrivals sends things out of control.
Episode 12 Predatory 04/15/11
Arcee must protect Jack when a routine mission is complicated by Airachnid's arrival
You may recall that Hasbro attempted to trademark Airachnid, but was denied in March of last year.
This kind of came in under the radar. Back in January a member of Director Michael Bay's Shoot for the Edit forums by the name of EastwoodClinton mentioned an AKP article that stated Transformers DOTM would be filming in Cambodia in February. Cambodia's Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith even stated via facebook that he had given the "green light" for filming in the second week of February. Since then there's basically been no information regarding the rumored filming in Cambodia until this video was discovered on YouTube. The video shows a film crew at Cambodia's Angkor Wat Temple. The video is labeled "Transformer 3 - Dark side of the moon - took shot in Cambodia" and you can hear one of the onlookers mention "Transformers 3". None of the cast or vehicles are seen in the video, the only real action is a boom crane navigating over the complex. The YouTube member who posted the video commented that they filmed there all day. The AKP article mentioned earlier states they would also be filming at Bokor Hill Station in southern Cambodia.
The video is embedded below. Feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub.
One of several wonders of the internet, Taobao.com has an auction on it for a new very interesting animal character, thought to be first glimpsed VERY briefly in the Superbowl trailer for TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON. People were unsure if they actually saw this character, but a later news story revealed a new list of items available showing that a certain 'condor' seemed to be making his debut appearance in the DOTM toyline, thus confirming the previous uncertainty.
Alright, vagueness aside, plenty of time for spoiler sensitive fans to duck out. Without further ado, we present what is being touted as 'buzzard' or Laserbeak by the seller.
No more speculation it seems, Soundwave's favorite minion (yeah, he is...) looks to actually be joining the movie-verse.
You can see the original auction here, and we have mirrored the images below.
So what are you seeing in this guy's hands? Looks like some form of aerial vehicle (Cybertronian) that transforms into a dragon type creature, or a condor with a very long neck.
Thanks to fellow fansite, TheAllspark, we know of a new listing of TakaraTomy toys for Transformers Dark of the Moon Wave 2. The list originates from Malaysia and is a pre-order list for retailers. Most of the things listed have already been revealed at ToyFair, but as always there is one little thing that's new.
This one listing is:
Condor (Buzzard) Deluxe
As you might know, Condor is the Japanese name for Laserbeak, the more famous of Soundwave's flying minions. This might confirm rumours of the bird-like robot from the trailers actually being Laserbeak.
To see the original full listing please click here.
It goes without saying that as of yet this is all still unconfirmed and may still be subject to change, so take it with a grain of salt.
"Say it ain't so!" In what is sure to be crushing news to United fans everywhere it looks like the end could be near for the Takara Line.
According to a post at Autobase Aichi the April issue of the Japanese Toy Magazine Kero Kero Ace is reporting that Transformers United will be coming to end with March's wave 4. There's been no news of any United figures scheduled for release beyond wave 4, and with the Dark of Moon line scheduled for release in May could Scourge and company the end of the road for United?
