    If Mattel doesn't get to it first! Mattel repaints their vehicles way more times than Hasbro does with their Figures! XD

    But a man of Culture I see, I 100% approve, please put images in the custom section when you do! I would LOVE to see SG Prime. ;)

    $10 ain't bad. Of course he's just a vehicle action master so I don't know why anyone would want a non transforming transformer like this!

    I think they are just doing Optimus and Bee from what we are seeing.

    We do have the Skateboards, and the Popart cars, but in terms of SPECIFIC Altmodes for characters I think it is Just Optimus and Bee

    For anyone unfamiliar, the Hot Wheels semis are scaled to hold a regular car in the trailer. This Optimus is the same size as the rest of the rigs, so Bee will fit in the trailer perfect

    Wonder if he\'s got a mini Prime face under the cab like Bumblebee. Really the only thing I don\'t like about it is the wheels, I\'ve always hated how cheap those wheels look.

    You can always do a wheel swap to Real Riders if you're unsatisfied. But base Hot Wheels wheels are like that because they're designed to work well on the orange tracks.

    The second vehicle is gonna have to be tiny.

    The reality of Hot Wheels are that they're generally 1:64 scale. Not perfectly, not entirely. That scale can range pretty tremendously. As such, just eyeing the length of the trailer, you're gonna struggle to find two cars that will fit in there that are real or realistic looking cars. I can think of a few that would fit two in there, but they're entirely fantasy car castings.

    Hot Wheels(and Matchbox) isn't concerned with "True Scale" 1:64. HW and Mattel are only concerned with making a cool cheap toy car, not satisfying car scale nuts. There's companies like Autoworld, M3 Machines on the cheap that do that scale, all the way to spendy mini model cars like MiniGT, EraCar, and Tarmac Works just to name a few.

    We also have to account for Combat Deck and Roller being inside!

    Edit, I tried Blue Text for the first time, didn't work XD

    This is great. I already have 1:64 KITT, SPM KITT, concept art KITT, the General Lee, BttF Delorean, Ecto-1, Ecto-1A, ‘89 Batmobile, Dom’s Ice Charger, the Thundertank, Lukes Landspeeder, and Herbie the Love Bug. Very pleased to add Prime and Bee to this collection!

    Should have grabbed those MOTU HW when I had the chance!

    if it weren't for the fact that its licensed i could totally see almost every optimus repaint being done with this tooling. you'd get white magnus, nemesis, SG, magna, lebron james, etc.

    Can Hot Wheels toys be usually preordered on places like amazon and Walmart ? Or it’s the kind of things you have to find by luck at retail stores ?

    Coming with someone with familiarity to the hibby due to buying these cars for photography Most of the time luck like I'm not expecting anything else from this collab to be able to be pre-ordered, like that 5 car set will be walmart exclusive and at least in my area most likely barely if ever stocked and to make it worse the hot wheels hobby is basiclly filled with just holders and scalpers sooo im expecting this stuff to be a pain in the butt to find. I can joenstly say it's one of the worst hobbys I've ever dealt with, and mattel makes hasbro look like a Saint with how they interact with fans
