If you were following closely as photos leaked from the set of the third Transformers film, you likely saw images of a vehicle that caused some speculation on fan sites. Now, thanks to images of a new toy (it’s always the toys that give away designs for films like this) it seems like the identity of the truck has been pegged, and it is Megatron. Hit the jump for the full spoilerish reveal.
The initial pics of the character on set quickly saw it dubbed the ‘Mad Max truck,’ as it is a semi rig outfitted with a bladed cow-catcher and seemingly hauling some sort of military gear. You can see the toy clearly replicates that look. And as for the transformed version, looks like the classic Big Bad for the Transformers series has some scars thanks to the events of the last film, and that shroud that ends up flipped over his shoulder like a mini cape is a nice touch. Very fashionable.
Michael Bay directs Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel and Patrick Dempsey and will be released July 1st 2011.
