    I'd preorder this line at least where I live is barely carried by stores and on top of that it's one per case and with hot wheels's scalper problum im not expecting it to be seen at all, also as far as I know the only stores carrying this subline that prime is apart of is dollar general and krogers

    For stuff like Optimus...yeah. Usually you go to a storefront specializing in diecast cars and order there. But the TF crossover nature of this toy...available on BBTS and I'd go that route just in case.

    As far as Bumblebee...you're SOL. You have to hunt, Ebay, or pick up the entire case if you can for one.

    Entertainment Earth has a preorder open for a "Transformers Hot Wheels Optimus Prime Orion Truck 1:64 Scale Die-Cast Metal Vehicle" here:
    Transformers Hot Wheels Optimus Prime Orion Truck 1:64 Scale Die-Cast Metal Vehicle

    The price is different than BBTS, I'm not sure if this is the same item or not. Scale is the same at 1:64. Description is "Roll out and hit the track with the Transformers Optimus Prime Orion Truck 1:64 Scale Die-Cast Metal Vehicle! This awesome 1:64 scale truck features Autobot deco and comes packaged on a blister card. Ages 3 and up."

    It sounds like the same truck without the trailer perhaps.

    THere's no such thing as a "better scale." Hot Wheels have been roughly 1:64 scale for decades and it's the standard for inexpensive toy cars.

    It doesn't matter for HW, who's goal is cool toy cars rather than accurately scaled cars. You want accurate scaled diecasts? There's M3, Auto World. For high end there's MiniGT, Inno, Era Car, to name a few.

    HW never cared about scale even from the company's debut. It's roughly 1:64, not exact.

    Yes this one will be available at stores (if you are lucky to get it before scalpers),and I think those are the only options available for online, that I know of.

    Bumblebee is highly unlikely. Because it's part of a HW basics case, there's really no singling out of them unless you ebay or find a specialty shop that'll do it. Meanwhile, the SKUs of Track Fleet are meant to be sold individually so you can find Optimus by itself.

    Also man the Volvo hauler looks great and I need it too!

    I think July?

    But we could probably see him as soon as June.

    But the Entertainment Earth listing said September and now October. But I think those are just for each shipment they get in, and all other shipments are sold out.

    So September's is sold out so they are listing for October's Etc.
