    The guy is always delayed when disaster strikes, leaving his autobots to defend themselves. For example:

    Transformers - After killing Bonecrusher, didnt get to mission city for quite some time. Which could have prevented the death of Jazz.

    Transformers ROTF - Dead (gets a pass on this one)

    Transformers DOTM - Was minutes away from the other Autobots when the Dreads attacked and Sentinel killed Ironhide. (Although if he were around Sentinel might have attacked him instead of Ironhide)

    I think he was fighting off Barricade in that meantime.

    He's a truck, the slowest vehicle among the Autobots, I don't think he would fare well on that Highway Chase.

    On Ironhide's demise, he was there, and saw Ironhide dying, he just went catatonic [Or at least that's what I think] when he saw his friend turning into rust in the ground.

    Optimus's top speed is at least 250mph, pretty sure he's more than capable of keeping up on a highway.

    I meant keep up with The Dreads, BB and Sideswipe, he's fast, but not fast like them, I believe.
    Besides, a truck is not that good for high-speed maneuveurs [I.e dodging cars, making narrow turns, dodging falling strucutres, e.t.c].

    Then again, my knowledge about cars is very limited, so...

    He'll never get away from this. I fully expect Prime to get "stuck on some wires" in every TF movie/comic/show to come out from now on... kinda like another "Megatron becomes Galvatron" type thing.

    Well considering the fact that OP's abilities aren't limited by his status as a truck, we will never know. The truck doesn't mean anything, it's just a human vehicle disguise. He can maneuver just as fast as the others if not faster.

    Besides, they can't let OP have all the screen time to himself, the other Autobots need something to do.

    Yeah, they should've explained where he was. He just suddenly vanished after his conversation with Sentinel. What could've been more important than "protecting" Sentinel? Perhaps it is explained in a deleted scene.

    And it can't be that Optimus is slower than the other because he was in Washington BEFORE Bumblebee and Dino. I still don't get what those 2 were doing there by the way. They did nothing. But whatever.

    Getting stuck in wires was the worst possible thing that could have happened to prime. " While que was murdered and I was almost blown to bits, where were u prime?"

    "I was stuck in wires"

    Probably getting his own back for the Autobots leaving him to fend off three big Cons alone in the woods in ROTF.

    He gets stuck behind the "for dramatic effect" truck driven by a cackling Nicholas Cage.

    I love how so many people complain that the other autobots don't do enough, and then there is equal complaint about how little often Prime is around. COME ON PEOPLE. One complaint or the other!
