    Now the real life truck looks like a Prime toy. Don't know if I like it or not, I'll wait for robot mode and transformation.

    Aww yeah, Optimus looks a bit more beast with this redesign. Can't wait to see what changes they've made to his robot mode. :rock

    It's a damn fine homage to the altmodes of G2 Laser Prime and Transformers Prime: Optimus' cab truck. What's there not to like about these elements? :D

    I was wrong I guess they did go to one the semi truck makers and the new optimus prime truck is made by.....WESTERN STAR. western isn't the usual truck you see out on on the road like the big trucking companies trucks like freightliner and Volvos and international. Western Star trucks are more a owner operators truck and a little more costly and and customize. I can no longer pass a peterbuilt and think optimus prime. now if i see a new western star I can say to myself...that's just prime. (yeah i'm crazy)

    Granted, I'll be buying it to be my Ginrai, but still ^^

    That is also a bad disguise. Pointing out bad alt modes from the 80s doesn't make this truck mode any less ugly.

    It is a staple of the early days of the franchise. It´s there, live with it.

    I have to say, I like his old truck a lot better. But that might just be because I think older customized semi-cabs have much more personality to them. This just looks kind of...ridiculous.

    I'll certainly miss the original movie design, but this looks fucking awesome.

    Looks cool. A little too curvy. I hope the bot mode looks awesome.

    The more and more Prime looks like Hot Rod. (First the flames, now the triple exhausts.)
