We're less than five months away from the release of the Dark Of The Moon in theaters, and we've certainly seen our fair share of the first few waves of the film's subsequent toy line. Today we get a closer look at the alternate mode of the figures featured in the large group photo from a few days prior. We've got a look at Sentinel Prime, the massive Leader class fire truck. We also have images of the yet to be named helicopter, and the No.48 Lowe's Nascar. Their mechtech weapons are a machine gun, and a bow, respectively.

We also get a look at the new Deluxe Ratchet, armed with a Mechtech chaingun. We also have images of the new Deluxe Barricade and his mechtech claw and Sideswipe with his new convertible alternate mode and mechtech gun. And lastly, there is an image of DOTM Bumblebee. You can check out the images through the links above, or by viewing the YouTube video below ...

do we know the chopper's faction - it's one of the only dotm figures that has intrigued me so far

sentinel prime's alt mode is a bit boring but fits in with the big but not flash alt modes for autobot leaders

His robot mode is pretty wicked though. Sword, shield, it's wicked.

The key question for me is: How big is the Firetruck ? Is he a Voyager or a Leader Class ?

If he is a Voyager, it seems to be in a good scale with Voyager BB OP and Deluxes Ironhide & Ratchet. Very nice !

If he is a Leader, clearly the vehicle mode was scaled down in such way that the Robot mode is as tall as Leader OP
(exactly what happened to ROTF Leader Jetfire). If Hasbro has made that choice again, it is going be so disappointing...

In the previous pic of all the vehicles together, the firetruck clearly looked to be leader class.

Unless my eyes are deceiving me, it looks like the panels that make up the bottom of Sideswipe's doors are much sleeker swords than the ROTF version. Me likey.

Why does Bumblebee have the mesh "windows" of a NASCAR car? Don't tell me he ends up on the track.

its not rare unless you work military base or sector 7 :lol: yeah mechtech is ridiclous for transfromers to have in this series they dont look like transfromers at all look like rip off updated version of mask/zoids with littel bit of TWISTED METAL video game thrown into the mix im really surprised firtruck doesnt have mechtech weapon gun stored somewhere.

I really wish they'd just get to the robot mode pics. I hate how slow they are with the teasers, it's annoying.

Unpainted Sideswipe looks terrible. For a silver car they really need to make sure it's painted.

The Nascar and Sentinel Prime are promising, BB would be good if I didn't already have the previous version, and that chopper almost looks like an uglier version of Tomahawk. Interesting nonetheless.

We've come a long way, remember when we'd just get blurred out images of the alternate mode as teasers?

This line is really starting to grow on me. Sideswipe and Sentinel Prime look awesome, I can't wait for robot mode pics. The blue Wrecker looks alright, but the exposed weapons seem to seperate it from the green one and, for whatever reason, it looks like an FAB to me.

That military chopper screams Whirl to me - perhaps the Wreckers will be more than just the NASCAR cars?

Am I the only one that thinks that Sentinel Prime kinda looks like Animated Ultra Magnus?

According to the leaked list of upcoming TF, he's an Autobot.

My guess is that he's Springer, considering they got the Wreckers in the upcoming movie and there's concept art for a movie Springer released a year ago.

Sentinel Prime's alt mode is looking good and so is that helicopter :D

I guess so, but I'd rather they just cut to the chase, and I assume most fans would agree. These slowly-trickled pics are almost as annoying as CrazyDevy's blank images and silhouettes, especially since with these they could just take 5 minutes to transform and photograph one of them. But of course they want to draw out their internet dame as long as possible. :p

I was thinking the helicopter was repurposed in to Galvatron's mate from IDW's Infestation thing.

I have to say that most of these figures look awful. The oversized weapons are ridiculous and the paint job looks dull on most of them.

Sentinel Prime (although alt mode is too small) and Shockwave are the only figures that interest me so far. Maybe the helicopter (Springer?).

I agree. The new toys, in my opinion look just awful.

You know, those giant weapons aren't glued or secured on to the toy in any way. You don't have to use them if you don't want to.

You LIE! You LIE! 8-}
I have now found two people besides myself that like these figures.
My wallet is going to lose a lot of weight between now and the end of DOTM. Nearly every figure I've seen so far is on my want list, not to mention all the cool Generations and Reveal the Shield deluxes.

I love these toys too! I cant wait till May! Sure some don't look right, but a lot of them haven't been correctly transformed. My wife is gonna kill me cause of the amount of money i'm gonna spend this may!

Finally! a non-panelly Sideswipe! :D

Is it just me, or does Sentinel Prime look a lot like Animated Ultra Magnus? :???:

The firetruck and copter have hints of the bot mode on them... What a tease.

I've never seen a semi with flame patters, a pickup truck, a search and rescue Hummer, and a bunch of flashy cars travel in a group --all of which strangely have the same weird face-like symbol on them-- either. :P

I have to say I'm really liking Sentinel's alt mode! don't know why, but I just do! :D also, its not that I have a problem with the Movieverse or its designs, but I just get the feeling that Sentinel's robot mode shouldn't be too alien-like, I hoep it isn't. =L

To those with the query about the helicopter's faction - there's a nice red splotch on the front left of it. :) I'd say it's safe to say it's an Autobot. (whoah, funny sentence there)

If the nascar and the fire truck Robot modes looked like anything from the generations line I would be estatic but since they are from the Bayformer line there going to be ridiculous looking
