click above image to view every nook and cranny of the Optimus Prime Peterbilt
I bought the Transformers on HD-DVD two days ago and have since watched last summer's blockbuster movie three times on a 50-inch plasma. The HD-DVD version on a nice high-def TV is as good or better than the theater experience. What could be better than seeing Optimus Prime in 1080p HD? How about seeing the real thing in person. Or better yet, how about owning a 1:1 scale replica of Prime himself built out of a 1994 Peterbilt? Such a "toy" is now up for auction on eBay Motors (item number 230181106980, auction ends 10/22 18:17:35 EDT), and it's the real deal. If you manage to outbid the 57 others vying for this piece of pop culture awesomeness, you will have a fully functioning Peterbilt outfitted inside with a pimp entertainment system, a voice-activated alarm that speaks in the voice of Prime himself, wooden floors, chrome everywhere, flames on every surface, and the pièce de résistance is the bed in the sleeper cab that's covered in Transformers bed sheets and pillow cases. As the owner says in the vehicle's description, "The only thing it can't do is transform!!". With enough money, we're sure that feature can be added to.
