Wrapping is like a huge vinyl sticker that is placed on a vehicle for advertising. Like in some of the Need For Speed Games where instead of painting a car you can wrap it in a vinyl sticker. In other words, its a decal

Vinyl on a car. Instead of it saying Red Bull, it'll have pictures of Transformers on it.

Ok, that black Optimus is just smexy. The Bumblebee's are cool but I don't need the bus or the trailer even if it is a G1 colored cab.

The Bus has ONLY Bumblebee on it and the Big Rig has three Autobot Head Shots of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Ironhide on one side of the trailer and Decepticon Head Shots of Shockwave, Starscream, and what looks like Soundwave on the other side. All Head Shots are of DOTM Transformers.

Also, I don't need the snooty attitude!! I get that enough in my life.

The black prime looks cool but you can just get the cybervers prime with the trailer and paint it black with teal flames

Anyone know how big that Black Prime is going to be? I have a pretty decent Black Convoy collection and I think he'd look cool amidst those figures. I guess its size and cost will determine if I order it or not.

I believe that they are about RPM size or maybe Hot Wheel size (1/64th Scale). Hard to say based on the small photos.

If these can be had for a decent price and are Hot Wheels scale I'd be willing to grab an Optimus and Nemesis just because this is the only way I will ever have room to display them with their trailers. At the rate I am going I have to either be more selective or hope someone develops some quantum shelving soon.
