Paramount Pictures’ upcoming “Transformers: The Last Knight” will feature the heroic Optimus Prime based off the new Western Star 5700XE truck model. A Western Star 4900EX wrecker will also be joining the cast as the Decepticon Onslaught. Developed specially for the Transformers film series, the Optimus Prime truck incorporates the distinctive styling found on the 5700XE. Western Star’s most aerodynamic truck, the 5700XE is tough and powerful, making it the natural choice to portray the leader of the heroic Autobots.
Facil was responsible for the development and supply of the fasteners used in this top of the line Daimler Truck.
The average base price for this truck is around $140k, but the Optimus Prime truck is so heavily spec’d the sticker price easily exceeds $250k! The truck has been built in the Portland facility of DTNA.
