DOTM Sentinel Prime and Helicopter toys

Postby Sabrblade » Wed Feb 02, 2011 5:05 pm

For a while now, the word that a live action movie iteration of the Sentinel Prime character would be showing up in the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie has been circulating the Internet. Few hints and rumors have popped up here and there, like him being Optimus' "father", him being a fire truck, or him being "Old Yellow" from the movie's announcement trailer. A short time ago, we got solid evidence that he was a real character to be included in the DOTM toyline in the form of a toy listing saying that he was to be a Leader Class figure.

And now, we know more of the guy. Thanks to an image at ACToys.net, we get a look at the Leader Class Sentinel Prime toy in altmode placed within a group shot of many DOTM toys. Also among these toys is the Voyager Class "Military Helicopter" also mentioned in the previous toy listing. And we get a look at the Deluxe Class blue Wrecker, whose toy hadn't been seen up until this point.

Sentinel Prime indeed appears to be a fire truck, so the rumor about him being Optimus' father may now hold some weight to it (since that piece of info came from the same original source as him being a fire truck). Though, his connection to "Old Yellow" still remains undetermined.

Sentinel's in the back

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Is it totally confirmed that the fire truck is for sure Sentinel Prime?

Well...
1. We know that there is a Leader Class Sentinel Prime toy in the DOTM toyline
2. The video that told us of DOTM Sentinel Prime said that he was a fire truck
3. There is a fire truck in this image that is Leader Class sized
4. No other Leader Class toys have been revealed at this time
5. All the toys pictured with the fire truck are of the same wave as Leader Class Sentinel Prime.

Therefore, by simple deduction, we can safely say that the fire truck is Sentinel Prime.
