    Anyone remember M.A.S.K.? it was on around the same time as TFG1. Just an interesting little something I noticed, the semi in that show looks oddly like the semi that they are using for Optimus now. Maybe Bay screwed up his 80's cartoons. You can see it in the show splash image at this guy's page:

    its not like rhino has exclusive rights to that alt mode. a similar truck design was used for prime in g2.

    so for somebody not familiar with MASK, they could easily say that movie prime was based on g2 prime.

    Folks:

    KA has a point. Prime's a conventional-cab truck and so is the Rhino, but that doesn't really mean that he's more based on the Rhino than, on any other famous long-nose truck:

    -the Mack from THE ROAD WARRIOR
    -GoBot Staks:

    In fact, the red and blue tends to remind me most of:

    US 1!

    Man, the Rhino or any of these three would make truly triumphant repaints, especially Staks. Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease make Staks...

    He looks the most like Lazer Rod in my opinion.

    Prime does not have the windows at the top of the sleeper like the Rhino did.
