Megatron?

So the excellent toy site Tomopop has some leaked images of toys from the new Transformers movie, Dark of the Moon.

I’m liking the cloak vibe on, what I’m guessing is, Megatron. Not sure how I feel about him being some sort of tanker truck. Long-time fans of Transformers would know that Megatron has been jets and tanks in various incarnations of the shows and comics, so those weren’t too much of a stretch… but a tanker truck? Hmmm. Still, I like the vibe of the robot mode.

I wonder if they can get this third movie right. The first movie was a straight ahead action flick with a simple, yet effective, origin story. It seemed with the second film that the writers lost their way. Not only did it have crude and sexual humour that seemed out of place in a Transformers movie, it also had a plot that seemed too ambitious. While creating a character supposedly as important as the Fallen (I mean, the father of the Decepticons?!) they actually made the Decepticons seem weak. I mean, Optimus owned the Fallen in a matter of three minutes! Hardly an epic battle.

I’m liking the new teaser trailer for Dark of the Moon that’s circulating around the web. Maybe they learned from the last movie and are looking to deliver the goods this time. Us old Transformers fans can only hope!
