Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen may not have much of a media blitz going on, but when any little bit of information on the upcoming sequel to the 2007 summer blockbuster gets out, we're on it.

Seibertron.com member TCJJ has just informed us of two auctions that are on the Chinese website Tao Bao that claim to be figures from the upcoming film. Possible spoilers ahead so be warned.

The second figure is a forklift that goes by the name Dirt Boss.

No other information seemed to be present regarding the two new figures. Pure speculation can contribute Dirt Boss to being a possible member of the Constructicon Team.

I have a friend who works in a warehouse and he drives a forklift around moving pallets of fertilizer. There's the name association. :P

Wouldn't that make him "Poop Boss" then?

The forklift looks awesome the bike guy looks cool except the head. Now i wonder is the forklift part of the constructicons or is it from the game? It looks a hell of a lot like the one from the first movie game. Either way ill be getting it. Well both since i never pass up a motorcycle TF.

Dirt Boss has a fantastic vehicle mode, but the robot mode is kinda meh.

The motorcycle looks like one Arcee bikes. So, were we misled on Arcee being a combiner bot, and this is really what the bike bots are?

Or are they just using all of the designs over and over?

Cool, I wanted a toy of those forklift guys. Though, even if there is some name association, the name stinks of Hasbro 'gotta keep trademarks up'.

Considering how long its taken them to learn how to make not lame motorcycle transformers at all, I'm not gonna hold an odd head against the rest of the design.

PS: .... It does sorta look like Inferno, doesn't it...

Yeah, maybe Arcee just leads, or is part of, a team of bike bots that don't combine.
I like that idea.

"Dirt Boss", ie: the forklift, seems to be a toy of the Didn't-Get-A-Toy drone from the video game, Scrapper.

Scrapper's TFWiki page.

Note the greebles match up well: The chest circle and bands, and the molded "layered" look on the legs.

Yeah, looks like more scout class figures. I'm liking both :grin:

I like both of these figures. The first one looks deluxe to me. Too many details to be a scout. The second one "Dirt Boss" is a dead ringer for Scrapper from the TFM Game. If that's the case, we'll see mixmaster from the game too and hopefully Triple Changer Shockwave.
