    The Kodiak Top Kick truck that played Iron Hide in the movie transformers was designed and built between the company(Hasbro) and Monroe Truck Inc.(in monroe wisconsin). The cost to buy the road legal replica of Iron Hide was around $90,000. My wife handled a ton of calls the first few weeks after the movie with a ton of people wanting information on the truck, til they found out the actual cost. For the 2nd movie, hasbro just took the stuff that MTE had built and used on the other trucks. I still kick my wife for not driving it when she was given a chance.

    GM has since chose to discontinue their med duty line of trucks, so get one while you can.
