    Wasn't exactly sure where to post this so this seemed like as good a place as any. I was in TRU picking up some Thomas stuff for my son and wandered down the aisle with the trucks and other vehicles and then I saw it. It's a fastlane 1:43 mighty hauler kenworth tractor trailer. It's diecast and plastic and has some chrome and is nice enough, but this particular one's paint scheme bears more than a passing resemblance to movie Prime and it has a matching trailer to boot! I took some pics of it w/some other similar sized movie primes for your viewing pleasure.

    In and out of box:

    compared to hftd deluxe Prime:

    compared to Trans Scanning Optimus Prime:

    I think it scales very well with Trans scanning Prime, a little narrow for hftd though.

    All three:

    That's actually pretty nice looking. Wonder where they got the inspiration from? :)

    The pics don't quite do it justice, it looks really good w/the trans scanning OP. I'm sure it's just a coincidence... ;)

    Ha, you're right, I guess Optimus would've been Rhino if he'd scanned a Kenworth...

    I was working at kenworth in 2005/06/07 and would have loved to had Prime as a W900.

    That said, i like the 379 just as much

    Not the first toy manufacturer to do this. Here's another one I've seen at Big Lots:
