The Tranformers Cars Facebook has posted an image of Bumblebee (the 2007 Camaro) on display in front of store shelving, with Age Of Extinction backing cards on display to showcase how the toys will be presented in stores. Works kind of like what Wal*Mart calls a "planogram".

But, that's not all! In the image, is a movie Optimus head, sitting upon a G1-esque body!

We've included both pictures below for your ease of viewing.

I've been saying it.... Been saying ever since we saw the rusted flat nose cab frieghtliner (or was it a peterbuilt :-? ) that it was Optimus. Makes sence if one of BB alt modes was a 67' Camaro and then at a later date becomes the 2014' concept, then prime would be an old school Flat nose along with him.

Two things....

1) I cannot wait to see the toy for the G1-ish Prime from the movie...at least I cannot imagine them messing it up making it a shell-former.

2) They better make a Leader Class sized one :grin:

The rusty cabover truck is not a freightshaker or petercar, its a Marmon. Very rare truck to see these days outside of truckshows. Marmon went out of business back in the early to mid 80's if i remember correctly.Sad to see prime use 2 real truck modes (peterbilt and marmon) to go to that blingy plastic pimp my donked out spaceshuttle on wheels. Thing would probibly break into a gigantic pile of fail if it was actually put under a loaded trailer. :BANG_HEAD: :CON:

So in DotM Megatron copies Optimus and turns into a truck, and in AoE Optimus copies Megatron and turns into a rusty truck.
