After looking at the WFC toy pics side by side with the pics above, I have to agree. It wouldn't take much to make the toy match this truck. Larger grill set a bit higher up on the nose of the toy and give it the flame job and there you have it.

Rodimus on the other hand it would be perfect for, looks pretty damn close to his energon incarnation. But id rather have prime get a crap look then have Rodimus get ruined by bay.
Makes me want to dig out my Energon Rodimus now. I agree though, it's just too far removed from what we have come to know as Optimus or at least as the Earth based Optimus. I'm shokced that they actually had respect enough to bring in a flat nosed semi for Primes intro scene in the new film but honsetly, I would rather they had kept that version of him throughout the film, even if he upgraded to a brand new flat-nose with extended sleeper and shiny paint job than to have them use this version. Indeed, it's a very nice truck and would make a great Rodimus but it just isn't Optimus.
Of course now folks will be dumping on the BOTH of us telling us to get over the 80's, blah blah blah, etc... to which I'll just have to say "F*** 'Em!"
