1992 PETERBILT 379 "TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIME" STUNT TRUCK

When it came to creating the first live-action “Transformers” movie, the most important characterization was certainly that of Optimus Prime®. An entire team of artists and illustrators worked tirelessly, drawing potential trucks and cars, trying to zero in on just the right look for each robot/vehicle. When the film’s production designer showed Michael Bay a photo of the enormous tractor trailer, the director was immediately taken by the lines and size of the truck, even through he know he would face intense criticism for his choice, in the same way he did for selecting a GM Camaro in place of the original VW Beetle that was known as the beloved robot Bumblebee. Both of Bay’s picks ended up enthralling new audiences as well as diehard fans of the sci-fi series. The more aggressive truck, was also used as Bay’s tip-of-the-hat to Steven Spielberg’s 1971 film, “Duel.” This vehicle is one of the tractors used, it was a picture and stunt vehicle and is being sold “AS-IS” and “WITH ALL FAULTS” and is subject to execution of a Paramount Waiver.
