    Yes, it's the actual truck. I've done extensive research on this guy's page before.

    In fact, he actually posted about this truck being in the Bumblebee movie a long time ago before we even knew Prime's truck was going to make a cameo.

    Alas, I'm cloaked in poorness.

    Kinda raising a few questions. Does this confirm that OP in the next movie is going to be a different truck overall?

    Maybe they're just returning it since it was rented and intend on getting their own, as so they can do more with it.
    Or maybe now their going to get the Morman Truck for his alt-mode since that seems to be what his bot mode was based on more than the truck we got.

    Because white paint is cheaper and harder to mess up. There's so little of it on any given Prime why even bother?

    Not necessarily. It just means Prime won't be this exact Freightliner cab-over that Paramount rented from. They might have found another one they like better. But yes, there's a chance he won't be a Freightliner cab-over at all.

    Yeah, the truck was a rental and was immediately returned to the original owner after the filming (who is now selling it).

    For a screen-used, street-legal prop truck of a classic character, $21,600 ain't bad.

    This. They'll probably actually care to match up the robot and truck in the next movie, instead of picking the next flat nose truck they see and painting it red and blue.

    I always thought that shot in the film was last minute CGI. Interesting to know it was a real truck!

    $20k is not a bad price at all. There's a lot of cars that cost more than that, and I'm not talking about anything fancy.

    They missed a couple of tabs early in the transformation, so things didn't line up properly at the end...you know how it is.

    That busted grill reminds me of Terminator 2 after the tow truck Freightliner crashes into the creek

    Apparently a bird took out Prime's grill.
