Transformers 3 Set Pics: New Megatron, Nascar Wreckers Attack


I always knew there was something fishy about all those NASCAR cars just going around in circles for, like, what, two hours or something? There’s something wrong there, kids. Turns out, there’s a reason: they’re all secretly fighting robots from outer space! Or at least, they are in Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, his third installment in the fighting robots from outer space movie. Check out set pics of an Autobot “Wrecker” (above), supposedly part of an “an elite commando unit” of the good guys, and what that bad boy Megatron (below) is currently looking like nowadays. Hint: he’s still not a cool looking gun, alas. Imagine a huge friggin’ robot transforming into a huge friggin’ alien looking gun? I know, wouldn’t make a lick of sense, but then again, who cares?

Starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Frances McDormand, Alan Tudyk, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Frank Welker, James Avery, Peter Cullen, and directed by Michael Bay.

    So the “Wreckers” are Decipticons. I mean with the name it makes sense, but was kinda hoping one of those weaponized cars was an autobot. I want Skywarp and Thundercracker in it!!! And if Megatron turned into a big alien gun he’d be Galvatron (which I have no issue with them just keeping the name and having that transformation lol). Megatron as a Tanker though? Hmmms. Someone jealous.

      The Wreckers are actually Autobots. Corrected.

        K good, cause I remember Springer (Green autobot Triple changer from “Transformers: The Movie”) being a Wrecker. I wonder if one of these will be named Springer.

  • B-Flash

    It’s only a toy but check out his bot form

      Interesting. I wonder if the tarp will be on Megatron in the film. That’d be awesome to see. Big ass robot, with the tarp like a cape over the one shoulder.

        They’ve probably got some BADASS sketches and renderings of Megatron’s new design with the tarp/cloak.

        • Dedpool

          I keep thinking about this anime “Gun X Sword” and one of the mechs (called armors in the show) named Vulcan had a cloak around it and it looked badass. I just keep thinking of Megatron like that. He’s a survivor. Came back after the first movie, and now again, and each time he looks more dangerous. He better use that cannon this time.

      • B-Flash

        I’m sure it will, if I remember right his face did get pretty beat up in the second film and from the look of the toy without the tarp covering it, it’s still fu*ked up.

      • Imnlent

        The tarp will be a cape type thing, much like the ones sported by the Gundam line.

        • Dedpool

          Suhweet! Yeah that’s gonna look sick.

    As soon as I saw the Tanker pic I thought Octane but alas its Megatron. Still, looks pretty darn cool. Also after seeing that toy vid from B-Flash, I too hope he has the tarp. Can’t wait to see a full trailer on it. Probably during the superbowl like Fallen.

    I’m a NASCAR fan, seeing anything NASCAR related and Michael Bay in the same sentence literally breaks my heart. :(
