    We here in the United States get the Seinfeld food truck, and the United Kingdom folks get Movie-verse Optimus Prime. If only they could travel together - now that would be especially awesome...

    Yeah, what the hell? How come they never displayed it here in the states?

    I mean, Warner Bros. just had the Tumbler Tour, and fan reaction was extremely positive. Why not the Transformers vehicles?

    It's not even the one from the movies. Wrong model, heck the one from the movie was pieces from a few models. Not bummed about this being UK only.

    ^Yeah, it's a completely different truck. I mean, for all intended purposes it's a "giant-@$$ red and blue semi with flames and the Autobot symbol". I would still love to go see it. :D
