Big Trucks Hit the Big Screen in “Transformers”

With summer blockbuster season in full swing, all of your favorite stars can be spotted in the top Hollywood hits of 2014. But there is one star we bet you didn’t expect to see while enjoying the latest films (and lots of buttery popcorn): Western Star. That’s right- a custom-built Western Star truck features as the new Optimus Prime truck in the latest addition to the multimillion dollar franchise, “Transformers.”

It’s not every day that a Western Star truck can be seen driving on the big screen, but with its top quality design, you can’t deny it has the X-factor needed by most movie stars. The director of the “Transformers” franchise, Michael Bay, introduced the world to the latest, most buzz-worthy celebrity on his blog recently; he featured pictures of the Western Star Optimus Prime truck, as well as some of the other vehicular vedettes of the fourth installment of the series, which stars Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg. But though the other cars featured in the film are wonderful designs, the top billing really goes to the Western Star, with its custom red and blue flames and chrome detailing. Baltimore Freightliner-Western Star’s team of custom paint job designers give it their seal of approval!

Check out the pictures of the Western Star Optimus Prime truck below, and be sure to catch it cruising down the road in the latest “Transformers” movie this summer!
