    An Optimus Prime wannabe appeared in the Clearing neighborhood (Midway Airport) of Chicago two nights ago then suddenly disappeared...

    I think he should do the entire truck just like Prime! He was parked on Central Ave & 63rd right by me....

    Agree with UltraMarcus. The decals look really out of place with a beige background. It just feels...cheap. Black would work really well considering the Optimus Prime detail uses a black background.

    The black would be really cool with red flames, then blue lights around the truck

    Nah, no flames. I've seen a lot of cars and trucks painted with flames and it always screams, "I'm trying to make up for my lack of male fortitude!"

    Maybe he didn't want to get too crazy and wind up getting sued for having a "Prime" truck :lol ... but I agree the background doesn't do much for the images.

    Right? If you're going to pay for that customization, why not do up the cab G1 style?

    Years ago there was a guy who regularly drove I-70 though Ohio that had a red COE with an Autobot symbol on the door. Haven't seen the truck in a few years though.
