First off this post contains spoilers, minor spoilers but spoilers none the less, should you not want to be spoiled stop reading now.




Thanks to Energon Pub member Alberside we now know that Collection.org has posted a short article and a new video concerning the Transformers 3 filming in Hammond, Indiana. In the video we can see John Turturo's Maybach followed by the red Ferarri, Bumblebee and the Stingray convertible (presumably Sideswipe) being chased by the 3 Decepticon SUVs. According to collection.orgs' insider source these SUVs are in fact called "The Dreads". If this is just a working name during filming or the final name is currently unknown.

You can view the video right here on seibertron.com!


As always you might want to take this with a grain of salt.

My first thought when I heard the names was that they were referring to ONE robot who they called [spoiler]Dreads[/spoiler] because he had [spoiler]actual dreads.[/spoiler]

Didn't expect this, maybe they can still have them...

Dreads? Is that because they are The Law?

From the look of it they look identical, from the name sounds like Bay wanted a landbased version of The Sweeps.

Oh that Bay.

Is "The Dreads" a homage for "The Dreadnoks" in G.I.Joe ???

Specifically, they're the Feds.

Pretty sure that wouldn't be an issue... ;)



Unrelated: Has anyone wondered if the armored car with the con logo might just be a normal armored car, set up to bait the Autobots into attacking it as part of an anti-Autobot PR campaign?

So they're just clones? Well, they did it. Hasbro found something less costly than repaints.

Knowing bay these ‘cons will have over the top Jamaican accents and tendrils that look like hair a la the twins. Hopefully they also don’t smoke a big funny smelling cygar. :lol:

Cool. The Dreads may be the Decepticon answer to the Wreckers (assuming they ARE Autobots). Very excited about this movie.

"Dreads" is probably short for Dreadnaughts

sounds like a reference to the Dreadnoks from GIJOE also considering there are three and in the first season of GIJOE there were only three dreadnoks excluding Zartan I would prefer them to be something simmilar to the sweeps instead or Reflector

Well there are 3 options here The sweeps, reflector or He is making his own verison of Decepticons who knows. Let's just hope they're not same in robot mode with suits, ties, and sunglasses
