    Not that I'm a Nascar fan, but it would be worth bringing back Alternators just for that car.

    it says it's 1:24; same as alternators

    Cool exposure, but that's a hella ugly paint scheme, trying to be too many different things ~ the M with the helmet on the hood, the prime flames, the giant autobrand on the one side, the full rendered Optimus Prime M&M on the other, just kind of an eyesore.

    I saw 1:24 scale, but since I don't have any alts 'cept Prime it was hard for me to gage the size.

    Thanks!

    Just about right. These NASCAR models are a tad larger than alts. Plus, they use diecast over 80-90% of it. Rubber tires, cloth netting, chrome, etc. They go all out for that price tag.

    Surprised to see the paint on a Toyota, considering the number of GM cars in the movie.

    That's good to know...

    To buy or not to buy, that is the question.

    It's because it's promoting a cross marketing campaign with M&M's (similar to the one with Pirates of the Caribean) and M&M's is the primary sponsor of the #18 Toyota.

    and dont forget that the whole car is painted, not tempo stickers like the ones at walmart.
