Autobots, roll out: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee go up for auction

Those childhood dreams of having a real-life Transformer parked in your driveway could come true — for the right price, of course.

Optimus Prime and Bumblebee from the 2014 blockbuster Transformers: Age of Extinction will go up for auction next month in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mind you, these aren’t actually robots in disguise (unless they’re incredibly well-disguised), but rather the 1992 Peterbilt stunt truck and the customized 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS used in the film.

Just in case the distinctive paint jobs don’t single them out as Transformers, the Autobot emblems on the exteriors and interiors certainly will.

Both vehicles will be offered up Jan. 23-31 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, with no reserve price. If you’re lucky enough (not to mention wealthy enough) to snag Optimus Prime, and it starts talking to you? It’s probably a good idea to keep that to yourself.
