    That’s the new name for the New Braunfels Police Department Corvette, which will make its official debut in Friday’s Comal County Fair Parade! Strangest looking '73 Freightliner ever. :wink:

    "To waste taxpayer dollars..." :D  Doesn't look bad, actually.

    EDIT: This post is a joke. Yes, I know this car is from a repossession and probably didn't cost the taxpayer a whole lot of money to repaint. :lol

    Me neither. So besides the name "Coptimus", there's NOTHING else that relate this article to Transformers in any other way?

    WHAT?!?! Not intercepting drug traffickers?!? That's a waste of resource.

    I WAS THINKING THE SAME THING! Autobots are always really expensive cars in the Bay movies so this would work for Prowl.

    New Braunfels isn't too far from where I'm at. Agreed that this looks more like Barricade or Clampdown than anyone else Prime related. Nice repurpose for a repo vehicle, I suppose, being just for parades and show. I don't think there's anywhere to safely put a perp in it when making an arrest. :D

    In the IDW comics Optimus started off as a cop, it'd be cool as tits to see a cop car version of him as a toy.

    I think this would make a good movie-verse Clampdown aka Sideswipe survived AoE by adopting a new police theme. :)
