    Gawd that's so cool.

    I'm such a sucker for all those little cars in general... making TF-based ones is just icing on the cake.

    would be plastic trailer (probably on a metal base), these have to be lightweight to perform on track.

    Cab itself appears to be metal, and the truck's chrome base and blue part seem plastic. Will wait for in-hand confirmations

    This would go great with the RID Spychangers/G2 GoBots.

    That’s pretty clean - I wish the “stacks” were a hair longer and the trailer a bit longer, but pretty nice.

    Anyone know, are the trailers articulated and removable on this line/

    Yes and yes! Track Fleet and the previous branding Super Rigs (well, most of them!) have removable trailers and you can swap most of them IIRC.

    Transformers Hot Wheels Optimus Prime Orion Truck 1:64 Scale Die-Cast Metal Vehicle

    ^
    Here's the best price I could find for the Hot Wheels Optimus Prime so far for preorder. The item is sold by Entertainment Earth and placed under a really weird name [[almost to the point of it sounding like a Transformers: One product]]. But if you cross ref the dimensions to other Track Fleet models, it is a match

    Hot Wheels Track Fleet 2024 Mix 1 Case of 6

    Item Height: 1.96 inches (4.98 cm)
    Item Width: 5.91 inches (15.01 cm)
    Item Length: 1.18 inches (3 cm)


    Transformers Hot Wheels Optimus Prime Orion Truck 1:64 Scale Die-Cast Metal Vehicle

    Item Height: 1.97 inches (5 cm)
    Item Width: 5.90 inches (14.99 cm)
    Item Length: 1.18 inches (3 cm)

    Hope everyone who wants one is able to get one

    I have a feeling he will be able to hold Bee in his trailer, I don't see why Mattel would make both Optimus and Bee, and NOT let them interact with each other.
