    This may have been discussed before, but as the movie version of Optimus is a long-nose rig, as opposed to the G1 Prime, does anyone know what type he is? I've seen a few pics of him, and it looks like he's a Peterbilt 388? Or is it an old 359 or something?

    Is the model Truck that Prime is associated with a certain year model? He looks alot like the truck from the old cartoon M.A.S.K.

    Speaking of an easy Hollywood adaptation, M.A.S.K. would be a very fun flic.

    Strangely, Peterbilt just stopped making the 379 earlier this year (they had been makiing it for 20 years).

    That might explain why I can't find any pictures on Peterbilt's website of that model...
