Okay, blocking traffic plus no license plate at either front or back. That cop missed one. I'm interested to see who the ticket is issued to. To Hasbro, maybe?

NYC cops will ticket you for anything. Prime was a high-profile target/cash opportunity, nothing more. Permits? What permits? Hasbro didn't have the right kind or not enough, you can bet on it. I have a friend who is an owner-operator truck driver. 48 hours after his house burned down in an electrical fire he had to make a run to NYC and took his daughters, 7 and 10 years old, with him. At a stop light in town, a cop stopped him for a burned out taillight. He then examined the rest of the truck, charged my friend with $10,000 in fines, impounded the loaded truck right there, and told him he was going to jail if he didn't pay within 12 hours. And he said he didn't care if my friend had his daughters with him or not. Photos of the burned house? Faked, according to the cop.

Yeah, I wondered that too - maybe whatever rigging allows it to appear driverless?

Also, what's with putting the ticket in the passenger side door? I probably wouldn't have noticed it if I were the driver.

Oh dear, funny in so many different ways! :P Couldn't the warden work out that it was there for the event...?

Never mind Ironhide, imagine if he tried to ticket the Wreckers!

I've been compiling a scale list (largest to smallest) of the Film Transformers based on; vehicle/alternate modes (with the best dimension data possible), as many official charts I could find & most crucially, the figures I actually own & desire! If anyone would like a bit of assistance in scale or would simply like a peek at the list, do say so! ^^

(Also been working on something big; I'm a writer, so that's a clue... ;))

True, New York City cops will do anything to give a ticket.

Perhaps the truck didn't have the right weight permits. Some cops are really sticklers about that, especially in New York State.

I remember during the first Gulf War a US Army Abrams tank on a heavy equipment transporter (you know, big lowboy) was heading down the road to a train station and the truck was stopped by a state trooper for not having the right weight permits. See? Cops are awful here!

But here's the kicker: While the crew chief was arguing with the trooper, a friend of mine and the rest of the tank crew fired up the tank, unloaded it, and just drove it down the road :D

Ok, enough topic derailing with old stories...

First, Bumblebee gets hit.
Then, several of the actors get in trouble.
Now, Optimus gets a ticket.


Barricade's getting revenge...

Easy one: No permits/registration.

(Sorry about the resurrection but wondered that myself at first and figured I'd throw that out there)

Edit: Also no license plate.

(Another) Edit: Don't parking tickets need a license plate number?
